These are some of the great quotes from Empire Records!
Gina- Lucas, what're you doin in here? Lucus- My life has reached it's pinacle, Joe's letting me close the store tonight Gina-You're kidding Lucas- I am not Gina- Big Responsibility, Lucas Lucas- Yes, but Joe's rules are extremely simple, count money twice, keep my hands off his beer, cigars, and drumsticks Gina- My my, how WILL you remember it all... good luck...
Lucas- Music Town franchise option agreement...? They got to be kidding... In the immortal words of the DOORS, the time to hesitate is through...
Lucus- So do I throw it and get a seven? Casino Worker- That would be a very good, sir...
Lucas- I know this, that if I win this roll, I will save the place I work from being sold, and the jobs of my friends that work there... Thus, striking a blow at all that is evil, and making this world a better place to live in.... and I'll buy you guys a drink...
Lucus- I wonder if I'll be held responsible for this...
Mark- Did you win anything? Lucas- No, I did not win, so if you guys ever wonder if it was nice to know you, I tell you now that it was...
Lucas- I do not regret the things I've done, but those I did not do...
Mark- I guess he didn't live up to the responsibility of the position, did he?
Mark- Lips are for kissing, baby je t'adore, mmm-wah
Mark- Empire... Oh sorry... Empire Records Open Til Midnight this is Mark... it's the boss
Mark- Empire Records Open Til midnight this is Mark
Mark- Empire Records Open Til Midnight this is mark...... MIDNIGHT!!!!

LucasJoe, I can categorically say, that you are not a bigger bananahead
JoeYou screwed me Lucas, you know that right?... What do you want me to do? Call Mitchell? Tell him I lied?
LucasIt seems like a viable option
JoeI swear to god if you are fooling with me, i will kill you
A.J.Lucus, do you think it's possible for someone to be in love with someone else and not even know it?

Mark--Isn't music town a chain, Joe?
A.J.--"No gum chewing will be allowed in the store?"
Debra-"No visible tatoos"
Gina-"No revealing clothing"

Mark-At least you didn't leave the couch
Lucas-Not the WHOLE couch
Mark-Oh, I've decided I'm gonna start a band
Lucas-The first thing you need is a name then you'll know what kind of band you got
Mark-Yeah, I know, I know, I was kinda thinking about Marc, what do you think about that
Lucas-Is that with a C or with a K? Mark-Well, my name is with a.... K.... hehe, so I was thinking maybe my band could be with a C, so that way it's kinda like that psychedilic you know trip thing...
Lucas-Always play with their minds
Lucas-Help you with anything
Warren-no, I'm alright, thanks
Lucas-you like music
Lucas-me too... the fat man walks alone
Warren-what's up? what are you some kind of weirdo?

Warren-yeah, see ya,
Lucas-I'm sure I'll bump into you
Gina-Isn't it customary to leave the scene after commiting the crime
Deb-Definitely an amateur

Joe-how old are you?
Warren-Old enough to kick your butt through your skull and splatter your brains on the wall
Joe-yeah, he's a juvenile
Lucas-no! (slaps Warren's head)
Joe-What's your name?

Jane-Make sure it's bottled water...
Lucas-mark, who's your favorite singer?
Lucas-Well if Axle Rose was driving down the highway and saw Rex Manning stranded on the side of the road, do you think Axle Rose would stop to help him?
Mark- (thinking).... Does Axle have a Jack?
Warren-No way, man, Axle would spin the wheel, take aim, pound on the gas, and take that sucker out (making car noises)
Lucas-Warren, WARREN!, where do you get this hostility from?
Warren-Who glued these quarters down?

A.J.-I don't feel that I need to explain my art to you...
Lucas-Warren, Look what you took rap, metal, rap, metal, whitney houston
Warren-it's for my girlfriend, okay?
Lucas-Sure it is, you know someone like you needs to diminish their criminal impulses, not magnify them, maybe some jazz or some classical....
Warren-maybe you bite me....
Jane-Do Any of you like Rex Manning's new record?
Warren-(laughing)Dance Party USA teen-bop type shit, right?

Rex-Hi, who should I make it out to?
Rex-Denise, I've always loved that name...

Corey-Joe, Dear Best boss in the world, can i bring Rex his lunch?
Joe-Berko's taking him his lunch...
Corey-Um, joe you know that Berko's gonna insult him right to his face, i don't think that's such a good idea
Joe-Look, I don't care if Berko sticks an M-80 up his butt and lights it, in fact i hope he sticks one up mine, it might be an improvement
Corey-Joe I have to bring Rex his lunch
Corey-Joe I need to bring him his lunch
Corey-I'M BRINGING REX HIS LUNCH!!!!
Deb-One for miss teen America.... It's okay, I didn't spit on it...
Corey-'Dishonesty'? what's that supposed to mean?
Deb-And one for the man with the band...
Mark-oohh'Marc Sucks' Yeah! hehe
Deb-Hey A.J. I made you a button: 'Stupid'
Joe-By next week this is gonna be a Music Town, and I don't think that they allow dancing in MUSIC TOWN
Lucas-What are we supposed to do instead, Joe?
Joe-what am I gonna do with this guy, huh? What should I do? Turn him into the police, send him to jail, who do you think that he's gonna come to when he wants bail!? Who? Me? right, me... What should I do? Put in my own 9 grand, and then I'm screwed...
Lucas-Don't worry Joe, you're a superb manager...
Joe-keep it up Lucas
Joe-say it again
Joe-you little shit!
Lucas-Joe that's my shoulder
Gina-Am I fired?
Joe-Have I fired anyone today?no.
Why would I start with you?
Deb-Anyway did you really wanna do Rex Manning in the countout room? Is that how you imagined your first time would be? Your back up against the daily totals and your feet pounding against the safe 'Oh Rexy stop that, you're so sexy'
Mark-Help Me, Help Me, Help Me, Help Me, Oh God....
Lucas-I used to pee in my bed, I did, I wet my bed until I was 10, my mother turned me over to the county when I was ten, too, not for being a bed wetter, but for being a bad seed... anyways three years went by and then Joe came, and he took me out and I became the well adjusted person that I am today
Deb-Look, I tried to kill myself with a ladybic, a pink plastic razor with daisies on it and a moisturizing strip, and it took me forever just to get through my skin.
Warren-You can't tell me what to do, A.J.
A.J.-What are you doing with a gun?
Warren-What do you think I'm doing with a gun?
Joe-Gimme the gun, Warren,
Warren-I'll give you the gun (shoots)
Joe-Deb, what are you doing?
Deb-I wanted to have a little chat with Warren...
Warren-oh yeah, have a little chat with my gun
Deb-What do you want Warren?
Warren-Stop calling me Warren, my name isn't fucking Warren
Eddie-His name isn't Warren
Corey-His name isn't Warren?
Berko-His name isn't Warren?
Mark-I thought his name was Warren...
Lucas-Well you can't kill me Warren because I'm already dead, and I talked to God, and she says Yo, what's up? and she wants you to lose the gun
Warren-You're psycho, you are psycho, what the hell is wrong with you people, you all belong in a loony bin, every one of you...
Mark-Well, see there was this guy here, and he kinda wigged out and everything, but that's besides the point... we're having a get-together here tonight, there's gonna be free admission, live music, kids, chicks the full nine yards man, it's gonna be heavy shit, anybodycan come, here at midnight, party on man. Damn the Man, Save the Empire! hehe
