Patrick Bateman (lying to Detective Kimball with a fake excuse): "Listen, you'll have to excuse me. I have a lunch meeting with 'Cliff Huxtable' (of The Cosby Show) at the Four Seasons in 20 minutes."
Patrick Bateman: "I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust. Something horrible is happening inside of me and I don't know why. My nightly bloodlust has overflown into my days. I feel lethal, on the verge of frenzy. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip."
Evelyn Williams: "Thousands of roses, and lots of chocolate truffles. Godiva. And oysters in the half-shell..." Patrick Bateman: (listening to a Walkman, narrating): "I'm trying to listen to the new Robert Palmer tape, but Evelyn, my 'supposed' fiancée, keeps buzzing in my ear." Evelyn Williams: "Annie Leibovitz. We'll get Annie Leibovitz. And we'll have to get someone to videotape. Patrick... we should do it!" Patrick Bateman: "Do what?" Evelyn Williams: "Get married. Have a wedding." Patrick Bateman: "No. I can't take the time off work."
Patrick Bateman: "There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there."
I have to return some video tapes.
[Looking at Paul Allen's business card] Patrick Bateman: Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh my God, it even has a watermark!
Jean: What's that? Patrick Bateman: Duct tape. I need it for... taping something.
Patrick Bateman: Do you know what Ed Gein said about women? David Van Patten: Ed Gein? The maitre 'd at Canal Bar? Patrick Bateman: No, serial killer, Wisconsin, the '50s. Craig McDermott: So what did he say? Patrick Bateman: "When I see a pretty girl walking down the street, I think two things. One part wants me to take her out, talk to her, be real nice and sweet and treat her right." David Van Patten: And what did the other part think? Patrick Bateman: "What her head would look like on a stick... " [laughs]
Patrick Bateman: You're a f**king ugly b**ch. I want to stab you to death, and then play around with your blood.
