- Ruby: You know, when you want to, you can sure do a good impression of an old fart.
Art Selwyn: Joe loved the beach. Ben Lucket: He didn't give a shit about the beach. It was them smooth legged girls in them dental floss bikinis, that's what he liked.
Art Selwyn: How'd you guys sleep? Joe Finley: Alma didn't sleep a wink. Art Selwyn: You're kidding. Joe Finley: No. Neither did I. Art Selwyn: You dog!
Art Selwyn: There's no justice! If there were, it'd be *me* in there instead of her! *I'd* trade places with *her* in a *heartbeat*!
Art Selwyn: Beautiful beach, a sunny day and good friends. What more can a man ask for? Joe Finley: [Pointing to young girls in bikinis] Can I have some of that please?
- Producers Richard D. Zanuck and his wife, Lili Fini Zanuck, co-owned the rights to the sequel with 20th Century-Fox. Initially opposed to the concept of a second film, they only went ahead with it out of a need to preserve the integrity of the original. As it transpired, Lili, who was very much opposed to doing a sequel, had only nominal interest as she was busy prepping her own directorial debut, Rush (1991).
