Movie Quote Quiz

Sandy: No matter what I do, there's nothing I can say... she just tears into me! She hates me.
Ken Kessler: Sandy, you're her kidnapper. She's supposed to hate you.

Ken Kessler: I mean, what the hell's the point of being a decent person when no-one is? Let's be assholes and get rich.

Sandy: I don't think he loves her.
Ken Kessler: Well, let's face it, she's not Mother Teresa. Gandhi would have strangled her.

Ken Kessler: Sandy, it's over. Sam isn't going to pay the ransom, he couldn't care less. I'm no criminal. I can't even sell retail, and that's legal.

Continuity mistake: When Judge Reinhold is in his kitchen with Helen Slater he tells her they have to be ruthless. He sees a spider on the floor and gets a magazine and scoops it up. Then he goes outside to let the spider out and he puts the magazine down for 1/2 of a second. He was supposed to put the spider on the ground but if you look nothing comes off the magazine. Then he goes to squash it with his foot, but what can he squash if there's nothing there? (00:13:35)

Question: If Barbara had a dog named Muffy then how come she didn't speak about it the whole film? Didn't she even think about wanting her dog back if she decides to stay with the kidnappers?

Trainman

Answer: So she's more concerned about her own life than the life of the dog. Or since she believes that her husband "worships the ground I walk on," she probably takes for granted that her husband will take care of the dog. Or she does talk about it but it's not important to the plot.
