  • Matrix: reading one of Jenny's teen magazines Why can't they just call him "Girl George"? It would get rid of all the confusion.

  • Forrestal: Now that is American workmanship. You think the japanese invented that? Bullshit. We did. Oh, for a while there we lost it. But we got it back.
    Cooke: I like Cadillacs.
    Forrestal: You like Cadillacs, well come round around here, brother, and get into this Cadillac. You gonna love it. This is style and beauty... Comfy, right? Oh, I know what you gonna say, that's vinyl. Take it from me, you don't want leather, brother. Leather's hot. It's uncomfortable. It cracks. Nothing but trouble.

That's performance.
