Las Vegas Captions From The Hangover Movie

Ahh, The Hangover! One of our all time favourite movies. Here are the best Las Vegas quotes from the Hangover:

Sid:Remember, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Except for herpes. That shit’ll come back with you.


Alan: How ’bout that ride in? I guess that’s why they call it Sin City. You guys might not know this, but I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one-man wolf pack. But when my sister brought Doug home, I knew he was one of my own. And my wolf pack… it grew by one. So there… there were two of us in the wolf pack… I was alone first in the pack, and then Doug joined in later. And six months ago, when Doug introduced me to you guys, I thought, ‘Wait a second, could it be?’ And now I know for sure, I just added two more guys to my wolf pack. Four of us wolves, running around the desert together, in Las Vegas, looking for strippers and cocaine. So tonight, I make a toast!

“Why can’t we remember anything that happened last night?” – The Hangover

“You probably get this a lot. This isn’t real Caesars Palace. is it? Did Caesar live here?” — Alan

Legendary Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas Quotes + More from Hunter S Thompson

If you need the right words to convey your level of insobriety, a quote from Johnny Depp’s Raoul Duke will likely do the trick. 

Or perhaps a quote from the man himself, Hunter S Thompson.

Total control now. Tooling along the main drag on a Saturday night in Vegas. Two good old boys in a fire-apple red convertible. Stoned. Ripped. Twisted. Good people — Raoul Duke

“Las Vegas: a savage journey to the heart of the American Dream.” – Hunter S. Thompson

“Every now and then, when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas … with the music at the top volume and at least a pint of either.” – H.S. Thompson

“A little bit of this town goes a very long way.” – Hunter S. Thompson

“For a loser, Vegas is the meanest town on earth.” —Hunter S. Thompson

Panic. It crept up my spine like first rising vibes of an acid frenzy. All these horrible realities began to dawn on me. There I was. Alone in Las Vegas, completely twisted on drugs, no cash, no story for the magazine, and on top of everything else, a gigantic god damned hotel bill to deal with. How would Horatio Alger handle this situation? Stay calm. Stay calm. — Raoul Duke

We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half-full of cocaine and a whole galaxy of multicolored uppers, downers, screamers laughers….Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls [….] But the only thing that worried me was the ether. There is nothing in this world more helpless and irresponsible than a man in the depths of an ether binge…. — Raoul Duke

God help you if you find a way to work in one of those last 2 quotes unironically.

Money is the great leveler.” – Marc Cooper

It’s considered just fine to go into one of these windowless scary gambling-malls, drink yourself silly, lose your ass at roulette, and then go ogle showgirls with breast implants. Republicans do this now. Working-class folks do it in polyester stretch pants. It’s normal.” – Bruce Sterling

“Contemporary Las Vegas is astonishing. At night, it is a brilliant cluster of jewels of all shapes, sizes, and colors, glowing in the middle of a vast, black velvet canopy. By day, it is also an amazing sight, almost like a mirage. There is nothing but desert and rugged mountains all around, and then- in the middle of it all – one of the largest and fastest growing cities in the United States… truly an enigma. “ – Thomas  Taj  Ainlay

“Las Vegas exists chiefly to satisfy the needs and desires of its visitors, and this it does in spectacular fashion. Sin City has taken or re-created the best that other great cities have to offer and then upped the ante — making it bigger, grander, flashier.” – Scott Doggett


And when you thought we were finished with Vegas captions

“Las Vegas suggests that the thirst for places, for cities and gardens and wilderness, is unslaked, that people will still seek out the experience of wandering about in the open air to examine the architecture, the spectacles, and the stuff for sale, will still hanker after surprises and strangers.” – Rebecca Solnit

“The reason you should go to Las Vegas is because, for only the second time, the second time, ever, they have rebuilt Sodom and Gomorrah. It’s back!! And you have the opportunity to see it before it turns to salt.” – Lewis Black

“I go to Las Vegas–or at least I went to Las Vegas–because even though I knew everything that was sinister, calculating, and evil about it, I loved Las Vegas. Only in Vegas could I dare to fantasize that I was a Friend of Frank. Or that I was throwing the dice at Dino’s favorite table. Or that I might luck out and sip bourbon with Rickles after his last lounge show. The D.I. oozed that kind of heady fantasy.” – Marc Cooper

“The last time I appeared in Las Vegas, they were wearing hoop skirts and Davy Crockett hats, … But they say ‘What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.’ And as far as fashion is concerned, that’s a good thing.” – Joan Rivers

“There is always a sneer in Las Vegas. The mountains around it sneer. The desert sneers. And arrogant in the middle of its wide valley, dominating those diligent sprawling suburbs, the downtown city sneers like anything.” – Jan Morris

“For me, Vegas is a vacation from being over inhibited, in the highly over inhabited yet uninhabitable city of complete uninhibition.” – Tammy Bloezaken

“In Las Vegas, everything takes place as if the absence of any sense of belonging to the environment entailed a hypertrophied sensitivity to details. There is no possibility of visual escape into perceptual horizons of indeterminateness (left-right, forward-back, near-far), but, instead, only the pregnancy of enlarged, exaggerated and highlighted forms. Behind each lit-up sign no space is hollowed out, no incipient world. Everything is there, everything is flat. As thick as the giant advertising billboards that ubiquitously package it, loading it with naive and comic symbols, crude, schematic messages, Las Vegas is a city of literal superficiality.” – Bruce Begout

“In the case of an earthquake hitting Las Vegas, be sure to go straight to the Keno Lounge. Nothing ever gets hit there.” 

“I hate to break this to you, but Las Vegas is like an actual city. They have grocery stores, big-box retailers, schools and everything. I mean, there is even a stoplight or two! It’s crazy.” – Adam Rank

“In my view, the greatest trick ever pulled by anyone on the planet was Vegas — and now the rest of the US — convincing the club scene youngsters that it’s a good idea to spend $400 on a $20 bottle of vodka to sit in a so-called VIP area, served by a waitress who’s mainly comprised of plastic and makeup, all to look ever so slightly down on the non-VIP guests, who generally have exactly the same disposable income but are having their VIP experience the night before or the night after.” – Paul Sculpher

“I’ve always thought of Las Vegas as Los Angeles on its day off. There’s not any hierarchy of taste, and that’s what L.A. always was to me: It’s not really a town of culture – it’s a town of entertainment.” – James Turrell

“The thing I love about Vegas is there’s something for any type of mood you’re in and something for any kind of adventure you seek out.” – Christiana Tosi

“I just love coming to Vegas. There is always a good energy here; the minute you get off the plane, it is happy. Every experience I have had here is fun, and everyone is in a good mood; they are happy, and they let it go. I like that. It is refreshing to me.” – Kelly Carlson
