  • I am a baaaad man.
  • Having sex or boosting cars... Um, oo! Uh. How about having sex WHILE boosting cars?

  • The ladies are dirty. Walk away. The ladies are dirty.


  • I try to learn your ways, understand your obsessions. But this baseball, it's so bleeding boring. Isn't it?
  • They threw us out of England, they threw us out of France, so here we are. Flourishing, really, except for the minor inconvenience of despising everything about your country.
  • [Blackmailing Memphis] One: You kill me, they kill you, your brother dies anyway. Two: You lie, you accept the job, you take your brother, you run. I hunt you down, I kill you, I kill your brother and I kill your mother for the aggravation you cause me. Three: You accept the job, you steal some cars, you make some money, and you be a big brother.


  • Donny: Any asshole can pull a gun on somebody! You don't know the first thing about stealing a car! You need a role model!
  • Sway: Next I'll pull out the leather, high heels, and pink underwear for you.
  • Sway: I've got two jobs. I've discovered that you have to work twice as hard when it's honest.
  • Sway: Hello, ladies. I always was a sucker for a redhead.
  • Sphinx: If his unpleasant wounding has in some way enlightened the rest of you as to the grim finish beneath the glossy veneer of criminal life and inspired you to change your ways, then his injuries carries with it an inherent nobility and a supreme glory. We should all be so fortunate. You say, "poor Toby". I say, "poor us".


Det. Drycoff: Are you okay?
Officer: I think so.

Det. Roland Castlebeck: Did Eleanor tell you that?
Memphis: Well that's hitting below the belt.:

Det. Roland Castlebeck: I'm a police officer. If you kill me, your life is over.
Calitri: No, you got that the wrong way ’round. If I kill you, your life will be over.

Donny: Eleanor is Memphis’ unicorn.
Freb: What’s a unicorn?
Donny: A fabled creature? You know, the horse with the horn? Impossible to capture?
