Quotes
Jewel: Now you listen to me, bitch, and you better listen good. You don't know Sonny like I do. Y' spend one night with him, you'll think he'd do anything for you. Now, he's that way because I trained him to be that way, so don't you go gettin' no fancy ideas about running off and living happily ever after in Texas City, 'cause he don't care ' damn thing about cha. You still belong to me, girl, and you still do as I say, and if you don't, I'll have you cut and thrown out into the street for the winos, and Sonny won't even know you're gone. Do I make myself clear?

Maitre d': I'm sorry, ma'am, but if you're trying to accustom yourself to eating indoors, using silverware and plates, then you're going to have to learn to wear shoes.
