Back to School (1986) Poster

Burt Young: Lou



  • Player #1 : Hey, Lutz! You know who I am?

    Derek : Um, let me see. Uh, protruding supra-orbital ridges.

    [the football player picks up Derek by his shirt] 

    Derek : Small cranium. Uh, 1300 cc brain. Hmmm. Neanderthal Man!

    Player #1 : [to Jason]  You. I want you to call his mother. You tell her he's never coming home.

    Jason Melon : Whoah. Hold it, hold it. You sure you even got the right guy? I mean, look how many people got blue hair these days. You know?

    Player #1 : Shut up, meat-head!

    Thornton Melon : Hey, take it easy, will ya? I mean, the war's over. Get new parts for your head.

    Player #1 : Yeah? Wanna make something of it?

    Thornton Melon : Oh, no, no. I never get physical. I just get upset. And when I get upset...

    Thornton Melon : [points at Lou]  HE gets physical.

    [Lou takes a metal napkin holder and crushes it with one hand] 

    Lou : [stepping up to the player]  You got a problem?

    Player #1 : No. I haven't got a problem.

    Lou : Well, now you do.

    [Lou slugs the football player in the stomach, resulting in a full scale bar brawl with the football team] 

  • Lou : Come here. I want to tell you something.

    Jason Melon : What?

    Lou : You were pretty hard on your father last night.

    Jason Melon : I know, but the guy doesn't understand.

    Lou : I know your pop thirty years. He understands. He's a nice guy, and he's tough. Like me. I'm nice, and I'm tough. I'll give you an idea what I mean. My two boys, I put one through college and the other I put through a wall. Your papa loves you. He's lookin' out for ya. Look out for him.

  • Thornton Melon : Home, Sweet Home.

    Lou : I liked the old house better.

    Thornton Melon : So did I.

    Lou : I liked the old wife better, too!

    Thornton Melon : [laughs]  Lay off Vanessa. She gives great headache. Lou, I can't believe it. Married five years. Seems like yesterday!

    Thornton Melon : [sighs]  And you know what a lousy day yesterday was.

  • [watching his TV commercial] 

    Thornton Melon : Lou, did you see the new spot?

    Lou : Yeah, I seen it.

    Thornton Melon : Do I look fat in it?

    Lou : You could lose a couple of pounds.

    Thornton Melon : I've gotta get bigger actors.
