QUOTES FROM Art Garfunkel CHARACTERS

Nately
You talk like a madman.
Old Man
But I live like a sane one. I was a Fascist when Mussolini was on top. Now that he has been deposed, I am anti-Fascist. When the Germans were here, I was fanatically pro-German. Now I'm fanatically pro-America! You'll find no more loyal partisan in all of Italy than myself.
Nately's Girl
When we go to America, Nately?
Old Man
You will take her to America? Away from a healthy, active life? Away from good business opportunities? Away from her friends?
Nately
Don't you have any principles?
Old Man
Of course not.
Nately
No morality?
Old Man
I'm a very moral man. And Italy is a very moral country. That's why we will certainly come out on top again if we succeed in being defeated.
Nately
What are you talking about? America's not going to be destroyed.
Old Man
Never?
Nately
Well...
Old Man
Rome was destroyed. Greece was destroyed. Persia was destroyed. Spain was destroyed. All great countries are destroyed. Why not yours?How much longer do you think your country will last? Forever?
Nately
Forever is a long time, I guess.
Old Man
Very long.
Old Man
You all crazy!
Nately
Why are we crazy?
Old Man
Because you don't know how to stay alive, and that's the secret of life.
Nately
"You're a shameful opportunist! What you don't understand is that it's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees."
Nately
You're a shameful opportunist! What you don't understand is that it's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.
Maj. Major
You're a shameful opportunist! What you don't understand is that it's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.
Old Man
"You have it backwards! It is better to live on your feet than to die on your knees. I know."
Old Man
You have it backwards! It is better to live on your feet than to die on your knees. I know.
Nately
How do you know?
Maj. Major
How do you know?
Old Man
Because I am 107 years old. How old are you?
Nately
I'll be 23 in January.
Maj. Major
I'll be 20 in January.
Old Man
If you live.
Jonathan
Is this an ultimatum? Answer me, you ball-busting, castrating, son of a cunt bitch! Is this an ultimatum or not?

Jonathan
answers: Believe me, looks are everything.
Jonathan
Believe me, looks are everything.
Jonathan
You want a job? I got a job for you. Fix up this pigsty! You get a pretty Goddammed good salary for testing out this bed all day! You want an extra fifty dollars a week, try vacuuming! You want an extra hundred, make this Goddammed bed! Try opening some Goddammed windows! That's why you can't stand up in here, the Goddammed place smells like a coffin!
Jonathan
Why don't you leave me?... For God's sake, I'd almost marry you if you'd leave me.
Jonathan
What are you crying for? It wasn't a Lassie story.
Jonathan
Sandy, do you wanna get laid?
Sandy
answers: please.
Sandy
Please.
