Edward Scissorhands (1990) Poster

Alan Arkin: Bill



  • Bill : Sweetheart, you can't buy the necessities of life with cookies.

  • Bill : Soup's on!

    Edward : I thought this was shish kabob.

  • Jim : [after seeing Edward accidentally cut Kim]  Hey! Now you've done it!

    Kim : It was just a scratch Jim, really!

    Peg Boggs : What's going on?

    Jim : Call a doctor, he skewered Kim!

    Kim : He didn't skewer me!

    Jim : [now bullying and shoving Edward]  You can't touch anything without destroying it! Who the hell do you think you are hanging around here, huh? Get the hell outta here! Go you freak!

    Jim : [to Kim]  He tried to hurt you.

    Kim : No he did not and you know it!

    Jim : Are you nuts? I just saw him!

    Kim : Jim, I don't love you anymore I just want you to go, ok? Just go!

    Jim : Are you serious? Losing me to a loser like that? He isn't even human!

    Kim : Just get out of here ok, just go!

    Kim : [after Jim has left]  Dad, did you see where Edward went?

    Bill : No, he just waltzed down the street.

  • Bill : So Edward, did you have a productive day?

    Edward : Mrs Monroe showed me where the salon's going to be.

    [turns to Peg] 

    Edward : You could have a cosmetics counter.

    Peg Boggs : Oh, wouldn't that be great!

    Bill : Great.

    Edward : And then she showed me the back room where she took all of her clothes off.

    [everyone stares, Kevin snickers] 

  • Bill : OK, everybody. Grab your plates. Soup's on.

    Edward : [with mouth full]  I thought this was shish-ka-bob.

    Bill : What?

    Edward : [a little clearer]  I thought this was shish-ka-bob.

    Bill : Yeah, it is shish-ka-bob. It's a figure of speech, Ed.

  • Bill : Well, this must be quite a change for you, right, Ed?

    Peg Boggs : Edward, dear. I think he prefers Edward.

    Bill : Oh, sure.

  • Bill : Well I'll be darned.
