Quotes from

Aratoon Kebabian: [Sleepily in his bed aboard ship] Bertha... how do flies get on a ship?


Garabet: [Talking about money] Now then, big money. Big money is fertile. It procreates. How I don't know. But it reproduces itself. Every time you look, there's more, but there's only two ways men like us can get big money... steal it, or, if you're young, marry. But you can't get it by work.


Garabet: [Philosophically] There's too much dirt for a broom.
