Character
Edgar Friendly
Actor
Denis Leary

Edgar Friendly finds himself, by default, as the leader of a disenfranchised underclass of citizens who live in the shadows of the emancipated ‘legitimate’ society. He doesn’t want power, or to control other people. He simply wants the freedom to make his own choices, to live life as he chooses, be foolhardy if he chooses, and not be told what is ‘good for him’.

Demolition Man Quotes

Edgar Friendly: You got big balls coming down here, cop after the kind of show you put on.
Lenina Huxley: We are looking for a murder-death-killer. Are you gonna help us or bully us with your primitive weapons?
[Friendly then raises his twin barrelled pistol and fires it to show it's not primitive]
Lenina Huxley: Oh, maybe they’re not so primitive.
Edgar Friendly: So, you think you’re taking me in huh? Guess what, not happening. Yeah, you can tell Cocteau he can kiss my ass. That’s right, tell him that it’s gonna take a whole army of assholes to get rid of me ’cause I don’t give a shit, I’ve got nothing to lose.
John Spartan: Hey, I don’t wanna rain on your parade, pal, but I don’t know who the hell you think you are or who’s gonna take you anywhere. So: stay here, “be well”, and Cocteau’s an asshole!

John Spartan: Wait a minute, you’re that guy outside Taco Bell.
Edgar Friendly: Yeah. What do you want?
John Spartan: I guess you’re not a part of the ‘Cocteau Plan’ are you?
Edgar Friendly: What? Greed, deception, abuse of power? That’s no plan.
John Spartan: That’s why everybody’s down here?
Edgar Friendly: That’s right. You see, according to Cocteau’s plan, I’m the enemy. Because I like to think, I like to read. I’m into freedom of speech, freedom of choice. I’m the kind of guy who would sit in the greasy spoon and think “Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the big rack of Barbecued spare ribs with the side order of gravy fries?” I WANT high cholesterol. I want to eat bacon, butter and buckets of cheese alright? I want to smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinatti in a non-smoking section. I wanna run around naked with green jell-o all over my body reading a Playboy magazine. Why? Because maybe I feel the need to okay pal? I’ve SEEN the future, you know what it is. It’s made by a 47 year-old virgin in gray pajamas soaking in a bubble bath, drinking a broccoli milkshake and thinking “I’m an Oscar-Meyer Wiener”. You wanna live on top, you gotta live Cocteau’s way. What he wants, when he wants, how he wants. Your other option: come down here, maybe starve to death.
John Spartan: Why don’t you take charge and lead these people out of here?
Edgar Friendly: I’m no leader. I do what I have to do. Sometimes, people come with me. All I want to do is bury Cacteau up to his neck in sh*t and make him think happy, happy thoughts forever.
John Spartan: Well, I got bad news. I think he wants to kill you.

Edgar Friendly: [referring to Phoenix] They thawed this guy out just to kill me? I’m flattered.
John Spartan: Don’t be flattered, be frightened. This guy’s a certifiable nightmare.

Chief George Earle: You have apprehended the villain responsible for the murder of our beloved Dr. Raymond Cocteau?
John Spartan: Well, I wouldn’t exactly say apprehended. Let’s just say he’s history. And the Cryo-prison? That’s history, too.
[Chief Earle looks upon the damaged cryo-prison in disbelief]
Chief George Earle: [confused; takes off his glasses] What will we do? How will we live?
Edgar Friendly: I tell you what we’re do. We’re all gonna go out drinking, get sh*t-faced, and paint the town, literally. I mean graffiti, slogans. It’ll be a blast.
John Spartan: Whoa, Whoa. I’ll tell you what gonna do. [to Chief Earle] Why don’t you get a little dirty? [to Edgar] You a lot clean. And somewhere in the middle… I don’t know. You’ll figure it out.
Alfredo Garcia: F*ckin’ A!
John Spartan: [impressed] Well put.
