Jacob Mitchell

  • [commenting on crows] Those things are always waiting for something to die so they can eat it. What a weird job.
  • Hank, do you ever feel evil?
  • I wish somebody else had found that money.
  • We don't have anything in common, me and him, except maybe our last name.
  • I mean, hell, Hank, I've never even kissed a girl. You know, if me becoming rich is gonna change all that, you know I'm all for it.

Sarah Mitchell

  • Nobody'd ever believe that you'd be capable of doing what you've done.


Lou Chambers: It's the American dream in a goddamn gym bag!
Hank Mitchell: You work for the American dream. You don't steal it.
Lou Chambers: Then this is even better.

Lou Chambers: What you gonna buy, Jakey boy?
Jacob Mitchell: I'm gonna buy me a truck.
Lou Chambers: No, fuck that. Get something classy – Trans-Am!
Jacob Mitchell: Yeah, in my wildest fuckin' dreams, a Trans-Am!

Neil Baxter: [confronted by Hank Mitchell, who's pointing a pistol] But you're not the cold-blooded type, are you Mr. Mitchell? Looks like we're both going to have an awful lot of explaining to do.
Hank Mitchell: Just me. [shoots him dead]


  • Sometimes good people do evil things.
  • Four million dollars and plenty of change.
  • They've worked hard all their lives, but they still can't afford the American Dream. Stealing it is even better.
