Harry Donovan: Do you think the garbageman ain't in it for the money? 'Cause he sure as hell ain't in it for the garbage. Prof. Marieke van den Broeck: You don't have any friends. Harry Donovan: Oh yeah? Why's that? Prof. Marieke van den Broeck: You're an ogre. You don't like people. Harry Donovan: What? Prof. Marieke van den Broeck: You don't like people. Harry Donovan: Oh, I like people. Prof. Marieke van den Broeck: Name one. Harry Donovan: I like people. Alastair Davies: I want you to paint me... a Rembrandt. Harry Donovan: [pause] But only Rembrandt can paint Rembrandt. Harry Donovan: I'm not a shoe-maker, and I don't work for slobs off the street. I work with people that I know. You can leave now. Alastair Davies: It's a circular problem. Harry Donovan: Now, do I have to knock your ass down the stairs? Alastair Davies: No, no. Gentlemen. Um, we'll be staying at the Carlyle until, uh, Sunday. Think it over. Harry Donovan: Watch your fingers. [Harry slams the door shut as they leave] Prof. Marieke van den Broeck: How do you like the book? Harry Donovan: I don't like books. Prof. Marieke van den Broeck: Just look at the pictures? Harry Donovan: Yeah, ever since I was a little boy. Harry Donovan: I just don't understand why you guys have to sit here and piss on other people, let alone Rembrandt. Cafe intellectual: Professor Scheerding *proved* that the painting, The Man With The Golden Helmet, is just a cheap fake. Prof. Scheerding: I'm sure you know that, uh, in 1930 there were over 800 *supposed* Rembrandts. Harry Donovan: And now we're down to 241, thanks to you and your friends - and dropping. So, bully for you! Every schoolkid's favorite picture is now junk, because some self-appointed windbag has said so. You know, the problem is, in 10 years time there's not gonna be *any* Rembrandts. Just a big pile of *theses*. Prof. Scheerding: We have said something to offend you? Harry Donovan: Me? I'm never offended by flatulence. I just move away from its smell. Bye. Harry Donovan: When are you gonna realize that all of this art crap is a fraud? Otherwise, how could the same picture be worth $10 million or zip based on, what, a signature? Rembrandt is priceless. Donovan is worthless. That's not art. That's autographs. Harry Donovan: Do you have any money? Prof. Marieke van den Broeck: Why, you want to steal it? Harry Donovan: Yes.

- 'Peter Weller (I)' (qv) was the film's original director and was replaced shortly after filming started because of his criticism of 'James G. Robinson' (qv) and the film's budget (he said, "Their idea of a budget, is going to a hot dog stand.").

- There is a scene in the film where Harry Donovan finds out about the death of his father (played by 'Rod Steiger' (qv)) from heart failure in a newspaper clipping. The date of death given was Tuesday, July 9. Rod Steiger died five years later on Tuesday, July 9, 2002 of pneumonia and kidney failure.

- When Marieke mails the letter, there is a very short close up where you can read the address of Juan del Campo, meaning "John of the Field", living in Plaza de la Mierda, meaning "Shit Square".
