Our Favorite Quotes:'We are a family of heroes. And we are going to save our family, because we are the heroes and the family. And that's what heroes do, is save their families.' - Carol Cobb (The Bubble) Click To Tweet
Gavin: As the producer on this movie, here’s what I expect from you. Actors are animals. You are animal handlers. Sometimes, they want to play with you. Sometimes, they’ll rip your balls off.
Pippa: Don’t listen to anything they say. They’re liars. They literally lie for a living. That’s their literal job, yeah?
Gavin: Don’t party with them. Don’t tire them out. Don’t f*** them.
Gunther: [referring to the actors] What if we become proper friends?
Pippa: You won’t.
Gunther: What if they like confide in you, and they tell you something they’ve not told anybody else?
Gavin: Call me and tell me what they said.
Anika: [referring to the actors] This is so exciting. It’s like my movie posters have come to life.
Ronjon: Yeah, you will soon learn to hate these people.
Pippa: You a big Cliff Beasts fan?
Krystal Kris: No, but I saw the trailer for the second one. It was so cool.
Dieter Bravo: I don’t watch my own s**t. You should never watch your own s**t. You just wipe, you flush, and you move on.
Lauren Van Chance: Our main priority is our sixteen year-old son, who we just adopted right before the divorce.
Dieter Bravo: Listen, I’m sorry. I’m trying to care, but it’s hard.
Carla: [to Krystal] I’m lonely, and I’m in hell here, and I would like to form an alliance with you.
Carol Cobb: I heard you were starting a religion.
Sean Knox: No. It’s a lifestyle brand, slash motivational system. It’s called Harmony Ignite.
Carol Cobb: Wow. And you wrote a whole Bible.
Sean Knox: Well, I wrote a book. A book called Harmony Ignited. And it’s just a collection of my thoughts, and musings, and some sayings, and wisdom, and proverbs. You know, that’s it. Yeah. It’s not a religion, per se. You can leave anytime that you want to.
Carol Cobb: Right. It’s not like a cult.
Sean Knox: No. No, it’s definitely not a cult. I mean, who defines what a cult is, right?
Lauren Van Chance: So what happened on parts one, and three, and four is not happening again.
Dustin Mulray: What about what we did on part two?
Gavin: Welcome! I’m going to introduce somebody now who is, he’s special. He’s funny. He’s extremely intelligent. And he’s a visionary. He shot a brilliant movie called Tiles of Love while working at Home Depot. Our director, Darren Eigen!
Darren Eigan: I just want to say, I am so lucky to be able to work with a cast this talented. This is your car, and I’m going to step in, and take the wheel. Now, this drive is going to be a little crazy. Going to head towards the railing a couple of times. It might even hit the rail. Some of you might not even survive. But I’ve got the end of the road in my sight. Might be a crazy ride, but it’s going to look great, and it’s going to make the world forget all their problems. So, let’s go for a ride.
Dieter Bravo: We’re f***ed.
Paula: [over Zoom] You are such a hero for keeping the lights on at the studio. This lockdown has been so hard on all of us.
Gavin: But you’re skiing?
Paula: Yeah, well, this was the only country that was open. Thank God I got my shot.
Gavin: Did you? I thought they weren’t available for six months.
Paula: Oh, they’re not. Not for normal people, but I’m with rich people. Don’t hate the player, hate the game. Ugh! I hate the game.
Gunther: [to the crew] Yeah, let’s talk about zones for a moment. There are three main ones, okay? There’s Red Zone. That’s the best zone. That’s the actors, okay? Then there’s Blue Zone. That’s for crew. And then there’s Yellow Zone for like office staff. We don’t really need to worry about that. A lot of you have been asking about flirting. Yes, it happens. Physical touch is, of course, off the table. So what I would recommend is making sweet eyes at each other.
Darren Eigan: I don’t understand why you’re rewriting the script? We have a writer. Aren’t you an actor?
Dustin Mulray: Yes. But I’m also the guardian of the franchise. So I’m rewriting it.
Dustin Mulray: Can we play to the top of our audience’s intelligence?
Darren Eigan: No, our audience is down here. They’re kids. That’s our audience.
Darren Eigan: [to himself] “Guardian of the franchise”? A**holes. I won Sundance!
Gavin: We had a positive test on set, and although I am forbidden from telling you who it was, let’s just say it’s the girl who gets your coffees in the morning.
Pippa: Her name’s Wendy.
Lauren Van Chance: That creepy PA?
Pippa: Yeah, apparently, production were trying to be safe by just sending one person to get the coffees, when in fact, that led to Wendy touching about eighty coffee cups this morning.

Gunther: I have had the virus three times, okay? And, you know what, the first time, I didn’t even notice it. Second time, was in a coma. But the third time, I lost my sense of sort of taste and smell, and how I felt about people. And trust me, that is something that you want to avoid.
Carol Cobb: [quietly] I think he’s still sick.
Gunther: Also, I can’t wear rings anymore, because my fingers change size every single day.
Bola: [to Gunther] I’m going to kill you, and then I’m going to murder your ghost!
Sean Knox: [to himself] Sean, you are not in competition with Krystal. You are not aging. You don’t need a hundred million followers.
Howie Frangopolous: [over phone] I need weed immediately! Buy a drone. Attach my marijuana to the drone, and fly that s**t through my f***ing window!
Krystal Kris: You know, I’ve never had a normal friend.
Carla: No one’s ever called me normal before.
Darren Eigan: [referring to Scott] Trying to get in my f***ing head? It’s like he wants me to fail!
Gavin: Don’t let him mess with your focus. Everybody wants you to fail. Don’t give a f*** about him.
Darren Eigan: What?
Darren Eigan: So what do I do when Dustin keeps trying to rewrite the script?
Gavin: When he tells you his ideas, tell him you’ll think about them, and then never get back to him.
Darren Eigan: You do that to me.
Gavin: No, with you, I’m actually thinking.
Dustin Mulray: I’m sorry I skipped your mom’s funeral to go to the People’s Choice Awards.
Lauren Van Chance: I’m sorry that I burned down your back office.
Dustin Mulray: I’m sorry I slept with your agent. And your manager. And your divorce lawyer.
Krystal’s Mom: [over Zoom] Are you nervous to meet the dinosaurs during your act?
Krystal Kris: Mom, they’re not real. They put them in after.
Krystal’s Mom: I thought there was an elephant wearing a mask or something.
Carol Cobb: But I don’t think we’re allowed to cross bubbles.
Zaki: No, we wouldn’t be crossing bubbles. We’d be making a new bubble.
Carol Cobb: And then we’re just inside each other’s bubbles.
