Famous quotes containing the word guy:

    The way I see it, God gave me the body, so I intend to use it. It’s a big ego trip.... You know, you look around a bar, you pick out a guy and you say, that’s the one: I’m going to take all of his money tonight.
    Teresa Beaty (b. c. 1975)

    Andrews: Do you mind if I ask a question frankly? Do you love my daughter?
    Peter: Any guy that’d fall in love with your daughter ought to have his head examined.
    Andrews: Now that’s an evasion.
    Peter: She grabbed herself a perfect running mate. King Westley! The pill of the century. What she needs is a guy that’d take a sock at her once a day, whether it’s coming to her or not.
    Robert Riskin (1897–1955)

    I don’t pop my cork for ev’ry guy I see.
    Dorothy Fields (1904–1974)
