Quotes

Moondog: If I may suggest, your honor, I was told about this amazing rehab facility in the Virgin Islands that's got an open bar and 24 hour time massage. A little "jerky-jerk" to take the edge off you in the detox period. Drain the old jizz pipe with the anti toxins.
Judge: Excuse me?
Moondog: All due respect to my own personal fluid transition into my sobriety, I want to let you know the therapeutic value of a groin massage during the acute withdrawal phase is off the charts fucking medicinal!
Judge: It's not gonna happen!

Wasted potential

McConaughey does his hazy best but I think these guys were so wasted they forgot they were making a movie.
