Capt. Bart Mancuso: What's so funny?
Jack Ryan: Ah, the Captain seems to think you're some kind of... cowboy.

Woman on phone

Edie Stall: My husband does not know you. He wouldn't know you, somebody like you.
Carl Fogaty: Oh, he knows Carl Fogarty all right. He knows me intimately. See? This isn't a completely dead eye, it still works a bit.

Edie Stall: I know that my husband is Tom Stall, that's what I know.
Carl Fogaty: Yeah? Why don't you ask "Tom" about his older brother Ritchie? Ask "Tom" how he tried to rip my eye out with barbed wire, and ask him, Edie, how come he's so good at killing people.

Henry 'Hank' Hanson: [Bobby switches from folk music on the radio to heavy metal] What the fuck is this?
Bobby Lasorda: You can listen to that faggoty shit all the way home. Right now, I got to get into character.

Paul Edgecomb: Can't be bigger than you.
