Direct General Auto Insurance has an A+ rating with the BBB, however, the recent customer satisfaction reviews are two-stars or worse. It seems that Direct General could improve their customer support, which may be something to consider when getting a quote for car insurance to compare to other auto companies.
The movie's script was jointly written by Martin Scorsese and Nicholas Pileggi. The duo not only came up with some of the best storylines ever laid out in gangster movies, but they also blessed the gift of gab. While Tommy DeVito (Joes Pesci) had scene-stealing quotes, it was Henry Hill who consistently served viewers with magical sentences.
This is the quote that led to one of the most iconic scenes in cinematic history. It can even be argued that the scene alone was enough to win Joe Pesci his Best Supporting Actor Oscar. What's even more impressive still is that it all came about thanks to Pesci's improvisation.
The difference between the police and the wiseguys is clearly explained in this quote. When the cops bust Henry for dealing drugs, they aren't subtle about it in the slightest. Had they been quieter, Henry would have assumed that his friends were finally coming to collect.
Some of Henry's best quotes in the Martin Scorsese adaptation come when he is describing other gangsters via voiceovers. At one point, he describes what it was like to have Paul "Paulie" Cicero, the neighborhood boss, as a business partner.
It's the quote that kicks off events in the movie, and it's a really good one. Before it, the camera simply focuses on three guys riding in a car in silence. They then stop, open the trunk and go on to kill a man who's inside.
This is a light-hearted moment between the two old friends that shows their playful relationship. Cosmo is Lockwood's side-kick, but he is also his comic relief. This quote happens when throngs of excitable fans are all but attacking Lockwood on the street. Cosmo, the less-famous of the pair, watches with a bemused expression, and when Lockwood asks him to help, Cosmo cannot sympathize, but only offers this witty one-liner. Lockwood wants Cosmo to get a cab to pick him up, but Cosmo pretends to take Lockwood's request literally, shrugging slyly.
Lina loves to ask people if they think she is "dumb or something," throughout the film, a question that always strikes an awkward chord, as Lina does in fact seem quite dumb. Here, having heard that Kathy is dubbing her vocals, Lina is incensed and tries to blackmail the studio and uses her star power as leverage, bragging about how much money she brings in for the studio. She brags to Simpson that she makes more money than Calvin Coolidge (a former president), but then reveals her stupidity by implying that Calvin Coolidge is two separate people, a business rather than an individual. This quote is one of the funniest in the movie as it indirectly reveals how dim Lina really is.
Kathy says this to Lockwood when he first jumps into her car when fleeing from crazed fans. She makes a point of telling him that she is unimpressed by his celebrity status and movie credentials. His hard-partying, glamorous life does not impress her (or so she says) and she scolds him for believing that his movie star clout means that she will automatically fall in love with him. On the contrary, Kathy wants Lockwood to know that she is not attracted to him in the least and she wants him to get away from her. This quote shows that Kathy is tough, down-to-earth, and not easily seduced by mere superficialities.
Incidental to the main themes is the political situation on the Earth from which the protagonists set out: a future where the nations of the world entrusted Sweden with overseeing disarmament and found themselves living under the rule of the Swedish Empire. This sub-theme reflects the great interest which Anderson, an American of Danish origin, took in Scandinavian history and culture. In later parts of the book, characters compare their desperate situation to that of semi-mythical characters of Scandinavian legend, with the relevant poetry occasionally quoted. In addition, there is a fist fight between an American astronaut and a Swedish astronaut about who built the best empire, as well as other nationalistic rhetoric.
