Used Cars
written by Robert Zemeckis & Bob Gale

Stanley Dewoski (Dan Barrows): Oh, I'm just browsing.
Rudy Russo: Hey: Terrific. Terrific, Stan, that's what we're here for. Here you can look, browse, peek, touch, feel, taste, smell--do anything you want, take all the time you want. Nobody's gonna pressure anybody around here, Stan. You know something though, Stan? I really think you ought to buy this Buick. I think you ought to buy it today, right now, you wanna know why? 'Cause that Buick is You. The color is you. Look at it: That Is Your Car. Stanley Padowski IS Buick Centurion Convertible. Now, I know what you're thinkin' Stan. You're thinkin', "Can I afford to buy a car like this?" Huh? Am I right? Seriously, Stan, you can't afford NOT to buy a car like this. Now, I'm gonna make it easy for ya...You add this whole thing up, you take in account inflation rates, insurance savings, gas savings, ease and comfort, and you're gonna come out ten thousand dollars ahead just for making this deal--Well, Hell! The prestige alone at owning a Buick Centurion Convertible can't even be measured in terms of dollars and cents, am I right?
(Later, Stanley is seen driving off the lot in the Buick Centurion Convertible...)
