Tony Montana[edit]

  • This is paradise. This is paradise, I'm tellin' you. This town's like a great big pussy just waitin' to get fucked. I'm tellin' you. I shoulda come here 10 years ago. I'd have been a millionaire by this time. By this time, I'd have had my own boat, my own car, my own golf course.
  • What I try to tell you? This country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the woman. That's why you gotta make your own moves.
  • I never fucked anybody over in my life that didn't have it coming to 'em. You got that? All I have in this world is my balls and my word, and I don't break 'em for no one. You understand? That piece of shit up there, I never liked him, I never trusted him. For all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed. But that's history. I'm here, he's not. You wanna go on with me, you say it. You don't, then you make a move.

Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through! Better get outta his way!

  • The eyes, chico. They never lie.
  • [while watching news on TV] I know that but you know why, Vic? 'Cause you got your head in your culo. That's why. That fucking guy; he never tells the truth. That motherfucker!
  • Amigo, the only thing in this world that gives orders is balls, you got that? Balls.
  • Why don't you try sticking your head up your ass? See if it fits.
  • Do you know what a chazzer is, Frank? That's a pig that can't fly straight!
  • [after killing Frank and Mel] You want a job, Ernie?
  • I kill Communists for fun... but for a green card, I'm gonna carve 'em up real nice.


Tony Montana: You a communist? Huh? How'd you like it, man? They tell you all the time what to do, what to think, what to feel. Do you wanna be like a sheep? Like all those other people? Baah! Baah!
Immigration Officer #3: I don't have to listen to this bullshit!
Tony Montana: You wanna work eight, ten fucking hours? You own nothing, you got nothing! Do you want a chivato on every corner looking after you? Watching everything you do? Everything you say, man? Do you know I eat octopus three times a day? I got fucking octopus coming out of my fucking ears. I got the fuckin' Russian shoes my feet's comin' through. How you like that? What, you want me to stay there and do nothing? Hey, I'm no fuckin' criminal, man. I'm no puta or thief. I'm Tony Montana, a political prisoner from Cuba. And I want my fuckin' human rights, now! [slams desk] Just like the President Jimmy Carter says. Okay?
Immigration Officer #1: Carter should see this human right. He's really good. What do you say, Harry?
Immigration Officer #3: I don't believe a word of this shit! They all sound the same to me. That son of a bitch Castro is shittin' all over us. Send this bastard to Freedom Town. Let them take a look at him. Get him outta here.
Tony Montana: You know somethin'? You can send me anywhere. Here, there, this, that; it don't matter. There's nothing you can do to me that Castro has not done. Nothing!

Manny Ray: We can be outta this place in 30 days, not only that, we got a green card and a job in Miami. Now are we made or we made, man?
Tony Montana: What do we gotta do? Go to Cuba and hit The Beard, or what?
Manny Ray: Nah, man. Someone else.
Tony Montana: You kidding?
Manny Ray: No.
Tony Montana: You're not kidding?
Manny Ray: Guy named Rebenga, man. Emilio Rebenga.
Tony Montana: Rebenga? Coño, I know that name!
Manny Ray: Yeah?
Tony Montana: He's political.
Manny Ray: Well, he's coming in here today. Castro just sprung him. This guy was one of the top dogs for Fidel in the early days. But Castro felt like he couldn't trust him anymore and threw him in jail. But while he was on top, he tortured a few guys to death. One of the guy's brothers is a rich guy in Miami now. He wants the favor repaid. That's where we come in. [Camera focuses on a bureaucratic man entering the camp looking paranoid]
Tony Montana:(He's/ It's) ugly man.
Manny Ray: Yeah!
Tony Montana: You tell your guys in Miami, your friend, it'd be a pleasure. You know, I kill a communist for fun, but for a green card, I gonna carve him up real nice.

[After Manny follows Rebenga through a tent in a camp uprising, Tony ambushes Rebenga with a knife when he leaves the other way]
Tony Montana: Rebenga! From a friend you fucked!

Frank Lopez: Lesson number one: Don't underestimate... the other guy's greed! [laughs]
Elvira Hancock: Lesson number two: Don't get high on your own supply.
Frank Lopez: That's right. Lesson number two: Don't get high on your own supply. 'Course, not everyone follows the rules, huh? [glares at Elvira]

Tony Montana: Hey, coño, what is your problem? You got a problem? You're good-looking, you got a beautiful body, beautiful legs, beautiful face, all these guys in love with you. Only you got a look in your eye like you haven't been fucked in a year!
Elvira Hancock: Hey, Jose. Who, why, when, and how I fuck is none of your business, okay?
Tony Montana: Now you're talking to me, baby. That I like. Keep it coming.
Elvira Hancock: Don't call me "baby"! I'm not your baby.
Tony Montana: Not yet, but you gotta give me some time.
Elvira Hancock: Even if I were blind, desperate, starved and begging for it on a desert island, you'd be the last thing I'd ever fuck.

Tony Montana: Me, I want what's coming to me.
Manny Ray: Oh, well what's coming to you, Tony?
Tony Montana: The world, chico. And everything in it.

Frank Lopez: No, Tony, no, don't kill me, please! [crying]
Tony Montana: I ain't gonna kill you.
Frank Lopez: Oh Christ, thank you!
Tony Montana: Get off my foot.
Frank Lopez: Thank you! Thank you! [Tony looks at Manny]
Tony Montana: Manolo, shoot that piece of shit!
Frank Lopez: What? No. No! NO!
[Manny kills him; Tony sits down]
Tony Montana: Every dog has his day, huh, Mel?
Mel Bernstein: I told him. It didn't make any sense, clipping you when we had you working for us. He wouldn't listen. He got hot tonight, about the broad, you know? He fucked up.
Tony Montana: You too, Mel. You fucked up.
Mel Bernstein: Don't go too far, Tony.
Tony Montana: I'm not, Mel. You are. [shoots Bernstein in the gut]
Mel Bernstein: Fuck... You can't shoot a cop!
Tony Montana: Whoever said you was one?
Mel Bernstein: Wait a minute! If you let me go, I'll fix this up.
Tony Montana: Sure, Mel. Maybe you can handle yourself one of them first class tickets to the Resurrection.
Mel Bernstein: Fucking punk! Son of a bitch!
Tony Montana: So long, Mel. Have a good trip.
Mel Bernstein: FUCK YOU! [Tony shoots him in the heart]

Tony Montana: You know what your problem is, pussycat?
Elvira Hancock: What is my problem, Tony?
Tony Montana: You got nothing to do with your life, man. Why don't you get a job? Do something, be a nurse. Work with blind kids, lepers, that kind of thing. Anything beats you waiting around all day, waiting for me to fuck you, I'll tell you that.
Elvira Hancock: Don't toot your horn, honey, you're not that good.
Tony Montana: Oh yeah? Frank was better huh?
Elvira Hancock: You're an asshole! [storms off]
Tony Montana: Where are you going? Come here! Coño! Hey, Elvi! I was kidding. I was only kidding!

Tony Montana: Your guy Alberto, he's a piece of shit, you know? I told him to do something. He didn't listen to me, so I had to cancel his fucking contract.
Alejandro Sosa: My partners and I are pissed off, Tony.
Tony Montana: That's okay, no big deal. There's other Albertos, you know? We do it next month.
Alejandro Sosa: No, Tony, you can't do that. They found what was under the car, Tony. Now our friend has got security up the ass, and the heat is gonna come hard on my partners and me. There's not gonna be a next time, you fucking dumb cocksucker! You blew it!
Tony Montana: Hey, take it easy when to talk to me, okay?
Alejandro Sosa: I told you a long time ago, you fucking little monkey, not to fuck me!
Tony Montana: Hey, hey, who the fuck you think you're talking to, huh? You wanna fuck with me?! [Sosa hangs up on Tony] Who the fuck you think I am, your fucking bellboy? Come on, you wanna go to war, we take you to war, okay?


  • He loved the American Dream. With a Vengeance.
  • In the spring of 1980 the port at Mariel Harbor was opened, and thousands set sail for the United States. They came in search of the American Dream. One of them found it on the sun washed avenues of Miami... wealth, power, and passion beyond his wildest dreams. He was Tony Montana but the world will remember him by another name... Scarface.
