Irwin "Fletch" Fletcher (Chevy Chase) is a newspaper writer and a fast-talking master of disguise, using various looks to land interesting stories. When a millionaire named Alan Stanwyk (Tim Matheson) mistakes him for a beach bum (Fletch is doing research on drug dealing), Stanwyk offers Fletch money to kill him. Things get really interesting from there...

Cop #1: "You got a gun creep?"
Fletch: "Shamu's got one. Borrow his."
Waiter: "Would you like some drinks, Señor, while you wait? I will put it on the Underhills' bill."
Fletch: "Yes, very good. I'll have a Bloody Mary and a steak sandwich and... a steak sandwich, please."
Fletch: "If you shoot me, you're liable to lose a lot of those humanitarian awards."
Fletch [to a Doberman pinscher]: "Look, defenseless babies!"
Fletch: "I'm afraid I'm gonna have to pull rank on you. I didn't want to have to do this. I'm with the Mattress Police. There are no tags on these mattresses."
Chief Karlin: "[to the arresting officers] "Officers, could you excuse us for a few moments?""
Fletch: "Yeah, why don't you guys go down to the gym and pump each other."
Chief Karlin: "Why are you doing this, Mr. Fletch?"
Fletch: "I like men. I like to be manhandled. I like you."
Fletch: "Don't talk to me like that, assface. I don't work for you yet."
Fletch: "Can't keep me here, chief."
Chief Karlin: "Maybe I'm not going to keep you in here. Maybe I'm going to blow your brains out."
Fletch: "Well, now, I'm no lawyer, but I do believe that's a violation of my rights."
Fletch: "Why don't we go lay on the bed and I'll fill you in?"
Fletch (singing): "Strangers in the night, exchanging clothing, strangers in my pants..."
