Saturday Night Fever (1977) Poster

John Travolta: Tony Manero



  • Connie : So tell me, are you as good in bed as you are on that dance floor?

    Connie : [a few minutes later, after having danced together]  So when is Connie going to get her answer?

    Tony Manero : You know, Connie, if you're as good in bed as you are on the dance floor, I'll bet you're one lousy fuck.

    Connie : Then how come they always send me flowers the next morning?

    Tony Manero : 'Cause most guys don't know a lousy fuck when they've had one. Or I dunno. Maybe they thought you was dead.

  • Fusco : You can save a little, build a future.

    Tony Manero : Oh fuck the future!

    Fusco : No, Tony! You can't fuck the future. The future fucks you! It catches up with you and it fucks you if you ain't planned for it?

    Tony Manero : Look, tonight is the future, and I am planning for it! There's this shirt I gotta buy, a beautiful shirt.

  • Tony Manero : Would ya just watch the hair. Ya know, I work on my hair a long time and you hit it. He hits my hair.

  • Tony Manero : There's ways of killing yourself without killing yourself.

  • Tony Manero : You know, you and I got the same last initial.

    Stephanie : [sarcastically]  Wow. Does that mean when we get married I won't have to change the monogram on my luggage?

  • Tony Manero : You make it with some of these chicks, they think you gotta dance with them.

  • Frank Sr : [commenting on Tony's four dollar raise in salary]  Four dollars? You know what four dollars buys today? It don't ever buy three dollars!

    Tony Manero : I don't see no one givin' you a raise down at unemployment.

    Frank Sr : Four dollars? Shit!

    Tony Manero : I knew you'd piss on it. Go on, just piss on it, alright? A raise says like you're good, you know? You know how many times someone told me I was good in my life? Two! Twice! Two fuckin' times! This raise today, and dancing at the disco!

    [Gets up and walks out of the room] 

    Tony Manero : You sure as fuck never did! Asshole!

  • Tony Manero : Al Pacino! Attica! Attica! Attica!

  • Tony Manero : Hey, you know you assholes almost broke my pussy finger.

    Gus : Oh yeah, you wouldn't know which one it was.

  • Tony Manero : She can dance, you know that? She's got the wrong partner of course, but she can dance.

    Joey : So then why don't you ask her?

    Tony Manero : Fuck you.

    Joey : Which position?

  • Tony Manero : Are you a nice girl or are you a cunt?

    Annette : Can't I be both?

    Tony Manero : No. It's a decision a girl's gotta make early in life, if she's gonna be a nice girl or a cunt.

  • Tony Manero : Why are you such a cocktease?

    Stephanie : Don't you call me no goddamned cocktease!

  • Stephanie : You know all about the bridge, don't you?

    Tony Manero : I know everything about that bridge.

    Tony Manero : Know what else? There's a guy buried in the cement

    Stephanie : Really?

    Tony Manero : Know how it happened? While they were working on it, pouring the cement, he slipped off on the upper part of the bridge and, you know, fell in... Dumb fuck.

  • Tony Manero : I'll dance with you, but it's not like you're my dream girl or nothin'.

    Annette : You want a dream girl? Then go to sleep and have a nightmare.

  • Tony Manero : If you put your dick in a spic, does it get bigger than a nigger?

  • Stephanie : Nice move. Did you make that up?

    Tony Manero : Yeah, well I saw it on TV first, then I made it up.

  • Annette : Ain't ya gonna ask me to sit down?

    Tony Manero : No, 'cause you would do it.

    Annette : Bet you'd ask me to lay down.

    Tony Manero : No, you would not do it.

  • Joey : Hey Tony, Double J's been in the car twenty-five minutes with some chick!

    Tony Manero : So?

    Joey : So, I can't get the selfish prick out!

    Tony Manero : [to Annette]  These guys can't do nothin' without me.

  • Tony Manero : I gotta have an afternoon off, and I'm takin' it.

    Fusco : If you do, you're fired.

    Tony Manero : I'm DOIN' it!

    Fusco : Then you're FIRED!

    Tony Manero : Then fuck you, asshole!

    Fusco : ...And the horse you rode in on.

  • [Annette just had rough sex with both Joey and Double J and is now regretting it] 

    Tony Manero : Is THIS what you wanted? You proud of yourself? Now you're a CUNT!

    [Annette runs out of the car crying] 

  • Tony Manero : You know what Gus, I feel like breaking your broken legs!

  • Tony Manero : [after looking at a shirt display, he walks into the store and talks to the salesperson]  Hey, you guys do layaway?

    Haberdashery Salesman : [Not looking, doing his inventory]  So long as it don't turn into a 20-year mortgage.

    Tony Manero : Alright, look, I wanna put down five dollars for the blue shirt in the window

    [Puts a fiver on the guy's clipboard] 

    Tony Manero : Hold it for me.

    Haberdashery Salesman : [as Tony turns to go]  Hey, wait for your receipt.

    Tony Manero : [still walking out]  I trust you.

    Haberdashery Salesman : Please, no, don't trust me.

  • Joey : You had coffee with Joe Namath?

    Stephanie : Yeah! He asked me what it was like to be 21, and I told him I didn't know, 'cause I was just twenty.

    Joey : Then what?

    Stephanie : That's all.

    Tony Manero : [with his mouth full]  Ain't that enough?

    Joey : Hey, don't you never chew, Tony? Don't you never chew?

    Tony Manero : [annoyed]  Hey, when my mother dies, I'll give you the job, all right?

  • Tony Manero : [Bringing a can of paint to a customer]  Okay, how much painting you planning on doing?

    Paint Store Customer : After these two rooms, I wouldn't paint my wife's ass purple.

    Tony Manero : What color is it now?

    Paint Store Customer : [Offended]  You wanna know what color my wife's ass is?

    Tony Manero : [Undeterred]  You brung it up.

    Paint Store Customer : [Backs off, and snickers a bit]  Well, actually it ain't got no color. Just stripes. Them stretched stripes. What about those brushes?

    Tony Manero : [Pointing]  Here, you see that second display counter? Over there.

    [the customer pats him like, "You're a good kid." before heading over there] 

  • Detective : [after Bobby fell to his death off the Verrazano Narrows Bridge]  You guys think maybe he killed himself?

    Joey : No.

    Double J. : No man.

    Tony Manero : [after a brief pause]  There's ways to killing yourself without killing yourself.

    Detective : Alright, you guys can go.

    Joey : [as Double J, Joey, and Annette go back to the car, Tony thinks for a bit and walks right by them]  Ton? Hey, Tony?

    [He doesn't respond and keeps on walking] 

  • Stephanie : I'm sick of guys who ain't got their shit together!

    Tony Manero : Well, all ya need is a salad bowl, and a potato masher,

    [he mimics stirring in a bowl] 

    Tony Manero : and you got your shit together!

  • [repeated line] 

    Tony Manero : Aw, Jesus...

  • [first lines] 

    Pizza Girl : Hi ya, Tony. Two or three?

    Tony Manero : Two. Two. Give me two. That's good.

  • Joey : [after he says he wasn't sure it was the gang they beat up on his behalf]  Hey, what are you talking about? You said it was.

    Gus : No. I said it *probably* was.

    Tony Manero : Don't be pulling our legs now...

    Double J. : Wait a minute. Wait.

    [They quiet down a bit] 

    Double J. : You said it probably was...

    Joey : That's right! That's what you told us!

    Gus : I said probably 'cause I wasn't sure, you know. I mean it could've been the Spanish...

    Bobby C. : [Punches the metal cabinet on the wall]  You stupid fuckin' bastard! We almost got our heads busted in!

    Double J. : [Turns on Bobby]  Oh yeah? Not you, lover.

    [Exposing him as the one who didn't fight] 

  • Tony Manero : [after Bobby leaves the room, he turns back on Gus]  You know, you got some fuckin' pair of balls on you, you know that, Gus?

    Gus : Hey, c'mon. I had to say something, right? I had to lay somebody out for it.

    Tony Manero : What are you, stupid? You can't see who hurt you, right?

    Gus : Oh God, if I told them I didn't know who it was, they would've gotten off!

    Tony Manero : Yeah, well fuck you, Gus! You know what I feel like doing? I feel like breaking your broken leg! That's what I feel like doing!

    Gus : [Tony knocks stuff off his tray and they leave]  Hey, come on!

    [Drops his head back on the pillow, quietly] 

    Gus : Oh God I can't believe this fuckin' shit.

  • Fusco : [as Tony comes in the back door, referring to the paint he has]  What did he charge you?

    Tony Manero : [Walks past him]  Seven nighty-eight.

    Fusco : Oh that fuckin bum. Wait'll he runs out of something. Listen, do you know what to tell her?
