Bo Catlett: I'd like to introduce my associate, The Bear. Movie stuntman, champion bodybuilder. Throws out things I don't want.
Bear: I think you ought to turn around and head back to Miami.
Chili Palmer: So you're a stuntman, huh?
Bear: Yeah.
Chili Palmer: You any good?
Bear: Am I any good?
[He turns to Bo, laughing. Chili grabs him by the balls, then throws him down the stairs]
Chili Palmer: That's not bad for a guy his size.

Detective Fronteiri: I'm Detective Fronteiri. I think you withheld information.
Lou Bloom: That would be a very unprofessional thing for me to do.
Detective Fronteiri: That would be murder.

Grande, er... grande familio, grande tradizione de Christmas presents. Stupido.


You're the new me. No wait... I'm the new me.

Mark Steckle

Denny: You know you don't have to do this.
Doug Carlin: What if I already have?

Shake a leg Junior! Thank God your mammy died givin' birth. If she'd have seen you, she'd have died o' shame.

Bella: Jake, don't go.
Jacob: I know how this ends and I'm not gonna stick around to watch.

I’m not giving up on you.


You ain't the only one that knows some shit.


Ed Exley: All I ever wanted was to measure up to my father.
Bud White: Now's your chance. He died in the line of duty, didn't he?

[Epilogue] We took down some very big guys. Some of whom, they were just doing business as usual, helping their communities or their states, but some of them knew they had larceny in their blood, and they even admitted it. But in all, it was six congressmen, one United States senator, and my friend Carmine Polito. We gave the two million back, so that Carmine got a reduced sentence, 18 months. The loss of his friendship would haunt me the rest of my life. When the story was written, Richie DiMaso's name was never mentioned. Syd and I, we moved in together. Rosalyn? She would always be interesting. Our conning days were behind us. You can fool yourself for just so long, that your next reinvention you better have your damn feet on the ground. We got a loan from a bank and were able to go gallery-legitimate. The art of survival, is a story that never ends.

Dana Barrett: Well, what's he doing in my ice box?
Dr. Peter Venkman: I'm working on that.
