While You Were Sleeping (1995) Poster

Jack Warden: Saul



  • Priest : Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to...

    Lucy : I object.

    Saul : Oh, geez.

    Priest : I didn't get to that part yet.

    Jack : I would have to object too.

    Priest : What about you?

    Peter : I'm thinking!

  • Jack : [Lucy's sitting in the booth at the station taking tokens for the train. Suddenly someone drops a ring, making her look up]  Lucy? I have to ask you a question.

    Elsie : Get down on one knee, it's more romantic.

    Saul : Elsie, if he's proposing let him do it!

    Elsie : I *am* letting him do it.

    Jack : Can I come in there please?

    Lucy : I can't. Not without a token.

    Jack : [he hands one in and goes into the booth]  Marry me.

    Lucy : Yeah. I love you.

    Jack : I love you back.

  • Dr. Rubin : [about Elsie]  Is she all right?

    Saul : [quietly]  She has a little heart problem, she's had three attacks already.

    Elsie : They weren't attacks, they were episodes.

    Saul : Nothing wrong with her hearing.

  • Saul : So, do you have any family?

    Lucy : My mom died when I was really little and a couple of years ago my dad got sick so we moved from Indiana so he could go to research hospital.

    Saul : Research. Another word for very expensive.

    Lucy : Yeah, I had to quit school and I started working for the CTA and about a year ago he decided he had had enough research and he passed away.

  • Saul : Did you know I'm Peter's godfather?

    Lucy : Really? I thought you had to be catholic for that.

    Saul : Ox fudged it over. He donated 50 folding chairs to Father O'Shea's bingo night.

  • Elsie : I could never make a good pot roast.

    Saul : You need good beef. Argentina has great beef: beef, and Nazis.

  • Midge Callaghan : [Lucy has come to the Callahan's for Christmas and is sitting on the front steps talking to Saul]  Lucy? You came? Oh this is great! Hi, Saul! Hey, come on in, you two, it's freezing out here. Elsie made her egg nog.

    Saul : [whispers to Lucy]  A word to the wise - drink soda.

  • Jack : Which of the Three Stooges was Peter's favorite?

    Lucy : Curly.

    Jack : Curly. HA!


    Jack : He's everybody's favorite.

    Saul : I like Shemp.

  • Saul : I couldn't love you any more if you were my own son. But the fact of the matter is, you're... well you're a putz.

    Peter : Is there a point to this?
