Gord: Now my bus is leaving for Los Angeles, so I'm going to leave...on it.
Daddy: Son, wait.
Daddy: You're not taking that bus to Los Angeles.
Gord: But you bought me a ticket for this bus to Los Angeles.
Mom: That's not all we bought you. [Daddy jingles a set of keys and points to a car]
Daddy: There, it's yours. Hop in! You're drivin'!
Gord: Wow...it's a...it's a LeBaron!
Daddy: Bet your boots it's a LeBaron. Good car. Convertible.
Gord: Jeez, a convertible. It says #1 SON on the license plate. That's me! I'm the #1 son!
Freddy: What about me Mom?
Mom: You're #1 son too.
Freddy: Then how come Gord gets a LeBaron and I don't?
Gord: [shaking the keys] Because they love me more than they love you.
Freddy: No! No they don't!
Gord: Oh yeah? Well, I don't see your LeBaron. Where's your LeBaron, Freddy? I only see one. Are there...are there two LeBarons? I don't see two LeBarons.
Freddy: Knock it off.
Gord: Where's your LeBaron, Freddy? Where's your LeBaron, Freddy? I only see one LeBaron, Freddy. Do you see two LeBarons? I don't see two LeBarons. Are there two LeBarons?
Freddy: Shut up!
Daddy: Gord, this car is more than a gift.It's...kind of an investment in you. It means I believe in my son. [Gord gets in the LeBaron] You be a good man.
Gord: Father, I... I will be a good man.
Daddy: You make your daddy proud. You hear me?
Gord: I'm gonna make you proud, Daddy. I'm gonna make you so proud.
Daddy: Make your daddy proud.
Gord: You're gonna be so proud...Proud
Gord: Get the fuck out of the way!
The website where I found this photo was dedicated entirely to Celicas (bottom right) found in films. It was wicked random (this pic for instance) and astonishing that they could even pick them out of the crowd. The Celica has appeared in everything from Robocop to Freddy. Now that's versatility.
Foreman: You see, Mr. Brody, this part here is the trickiest part. It'll take 30 men. It'd be a lot cheaper if you just tear the whole thing down and build...
Gord: Money's no object. Because I had a million dollars, ok? And then I spent $150,000 on the jewels. I spent another $100,000 on the helicopter, ok? Then add this $750,000. [Foreman smiles as he hands him the check] That's all my money. That's all my money gone. One million dollars gone.
Foreman: [laughs awkwardly with Gord] Yeah.
Gord: Easy come, easy go.

Marisa graced the cover of Stuff in 2001. In 2002, she ranked #34 in Stuff magazine's "102 Sexiest Women in the World" (the top 33 are still at USC no doubt). In her interview with them, she says, “I was so aggressive in the audition for Freddy Got Fingered that I was ripping Tom’s clothes off. I went further than any of the other girls who tried out.” Ah, the Trojan ladies...
