Momma, you take Mardell and JD and get home 'fore I tell that lawyer there that you were so worried about your welfare you never signed those house papers like you were supposed to. So anytime I feel like it I can sell that house from under your fat, lazy, hillbilly ass. And if you ever come back, that's exactly what I'll do.

Maggie Fitzgerald

I saw your last fight, Shawrelle. Spent so much time face down I thought the canvas had titties.

Maggie Fitzgerald

David Mills: Now, I wasn't standing around guarding the Taco Bell, alright? I worked homicide for five years.
William Somerset: Not here.
David Mills: I understand that.
William Somerset: Well, over the next seven days, Detective, do me the favor of remembering that.

Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris: Frankie likes to say that boxing is an unnatural act, that everything in boxing is backwards: sometimes the best way to deliver a punch is to step back... But step back too far and you ain't fighting at all.

Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris: She's getting pretty good.
Frankie Dunn: Yeah, real fast. It's almost as if someone's been helping her.
Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris: Oh, I don't know. Maybe she's just got what it takes.
Frankie Dunn: She's got my speed bag, is what she's got.

Ref: Is this your fighter?
Frankie Dunn: This is my fighter.

William Somerset: Why all the effort to get transferred? It's the first question that popped into my head
David Mills: I guess the same reasons as you. The same reasons you had before you decided to quit, yeah?
William Somerset: You just met me
David Mills: Maybe I'm not understanding the question.
William Somerset: Very simple. You actually fought to get re-assigned here. I've just never seen that before.

John Smith

All right. I'm gonna disconnect your air machine, then you're gonna go to sleep. Then I'll give you a shot, and you'll... stay asleep.

Frankie Dunn

Frankie, I've seen you at Mass almost every day for 23 years. The only person comes to church that much is the kind who can't forgive himself for something.

Father Horvak

[in the Watergate hotel; on phone with security] Yeah, sir, you might want to send a maintenance man over to that office across the way. The lights are off, and they must be looking for a fuse box, 'cause them flashlights, they keep me awake.

Forrest Gump

William Somerset: I meant to ask you something before, when we spoke on the phone: Why here?
David Mills: I don't follow.
