Quotes from

[Dee Dee walk in on Julie making out with Frankie]
Frankie: Dee Dee, hi. Um... you remember her? Her name's Julie.
Dee Dee: Oh, I remember her. The bride of Godzilla!

Dee Dee: I have just one question. Did you kiss him because he's lovable, or because he's the only man on the beach?
Julie: Because he looked hungry. His last meal obviously didn't satisfy him.
Dee Dee: Oh, it's a good thing you happended along. I'm sure you could cater supper to an entire army.
Frankie: Now that's in bad taste.
Julie: Oh, no. One man at a time. I like to be a devoted chef.
Dee Dee: But right now you're serving a lot of free meals. Sort of a one-woman bread line.
Frankie: Ooo, that's smart!
Julie: [getting angry] I can afford it!
Dee Dee: Then he must be of your charity cases!
Frankie: Hold on, the football here would like to say something.
Dee Dee: Well, I'm not through!
Frankie: Figures!
Dee Dee: [to Julie] As the man said, this is a public beach and we're supposed to keep it clean.
Frankie: Now that's really in bad taste!
Julie: [to Dee Dee] Then perhaps, you better leave.
Frankie: Very good!
Dee Dee: [to Julie] I plan to!
Frankie: No, wait. Don't quit now, Dee Dee. I think your ahead.
Dee Dee: Okay, how's this for a closer?
[slaps him]

S.Z. Matts: How come you're in that cage protected, and I'm out here getting bumbed off?
Cappy: Sanctuary.
Julie: Sanctuary?
Cappy: Yeah, sanctuary from them. These beach kids. I had to build this thing to protect myself. I used to have a beautiful Cappy's place even more beautiful than this. And just last year, these beach kids completely demolished it and pretty near demolished me with it during a rumble all because of a stranger like you. Hey, you're not another one of those anthropologist explorers or something? A sex maniac maybe?
S.Z. Matts: I don't have any hobbies.
