Frank Abagnale Sr.: Do you know why the Yankees always win?
Frank Abagnale, Jr.: Because they've got Mantle?
Frank Abagnale Sr.: No. It's because the other team's too busy staring at the
Agent: He hasn't got a passport.
Carl Hanratty: In the last few weeks he's gone to Harvard and Berkley, I think
he can get a passport.
Frank Abagnale Sr.: Do you realize what the IRS would say if I was driving
around in a new coup? I took the train to work, Frank. I'm takin' the train
Frank Abagnale, Jr.: [as Frank Conners] : Your honor, ladies and gentlemen of
the jury, this is irrefutable evidence that the defendant is guilty.
Judge: Mr. Conners, this is a preliminary hearing. There is no defendant. There
is no jury. There is only me. Son, what in the HELL is wrong with you?
Principal Evans: Mr. and Mrs. Abagnale, this is not about your son's attendance
record. For the last week your son has been teaching twelfth grade French. He
conducted a parent teacher interview yesterday and organized a field trip to a
French bread factory in Trenton.
Frank Abagnale, Jr.: CHRIST! Terry! This is Italian knit!
Frank Abagnale, Jr.: I don't want to lie to you anymore, alright. I'm not a
doctor. I never went to medical school. I'm not a lawyer, or a Harvard Graduate,
or a Lutheran. I ran away from home a year and a half ago when I was 15.
Brenda Strong: Frank? You're not a Lutheran?
Carl Hanratty: Do you wanna hear me tell a joke?
Earl Amdursky: Yeah, I'd love to hear you tell a joke.
Carl Hanratty: Knock knock.
Earl Amdursky: Who's there?
Carl Hanratty: Go fuck yourself.
Carl Hanratty: Sometimes it's easier to live the lie.
Frank Abagnale Sr.: Two mice fell into a bowl of cream. The first mouse quickly
gave up and drowned. The second mouse fought and struggled until he churned that
cream into butter and he crawled his way out. I am that second mouse.
Paula Abagnale: Just tell me how much and I'll pay you back.
Carl Hanratty: 1.5 million dollars.
Roger Strong: Frank, would you mind saying grace?
Carol Strong: Unless you're not comfortable...
Frank Abagnale, Jr.: Two mice fell into a bowl of cream. The second mouse fought
until he churned the cream into butter and walked out... Amen.
Brenda Strong: Amen.
Carol Strong: Oh, that was so beautiful. That mouse fought and walked right out
of the butter!
