Look, bullethead. If they're hiking through the jungle there's nothing I can do about it. I have a car. I am not Tarzan. I have been through every one-horse shithole for a two-hundred mile radius. You should have seen the river I had to traverse this morning. So don't give me any of your crap, you gutless wonder. You have been an embarrassment to our family ever since the day you were born! And let me tell you something else, Ira ...

Considered a flop when the rough cut was shown, Romancing the Stone got Robert Zemeckis fired as the director of Cocoon. That wasn't a bad film. But it wasn't Back to the Future which Zemeckis ended up directing instead. And Romancing the Stone ended up being not a flop, either. I must have watched it 17 times on HBO. I can quote Danny DeVito's scene at the payphone from memory.
