Kitty Fane: [about Wan Xi] I had no idea you had so much affection for her.
Waddington: What makes you think I do?
Kitty Fane: I can see it in your eyes. I wonder what she sees in you.
Waddington: [In Chinese] What do you see in me?
Wan Xi: [to Waddington] You're a good man.
Waddington: She says I'm a good man.
Kitty Fane: As if a women has ever loved a man for his virtue.

Strap, God wants you on the floor.

Coach Norman Dale

One in every three black males is in some phase of the correctional system. Is that a coincidence or do these people have, you know, like a racial commitment to crime?

Deputy Marshal Samuel Gerard: Doctor Nichols, you really want to help him? You really want to be his friend? Then you'll help us bring him in, unharmed.
Dr. Charles Nichols: Why? So he can go back to prison? Tsk, tsk, tsk. If you want help, gentlemen, you've come to the wrong man. Richard is innocent and you'll never find him. He's too smart.

Katie Cox: [while Harry is cutting carrots] Think that's enough carrots?
Harry Pfarrer: [angrily] ...What?!

Toni Mannix: [Reeves steps in to get a photograph with Rita Hayworth] Just made it.
George Reeves: Beg your pardon?
Toni Mannix: Into the picture.
George Reeves: Was someone taking a picture? I hadn't noticed.
[Reeves lights Mannix' cigarette]
Toni Mannix: My, we're awfully well-trained, Mister...
George Reeves: George Reeves.
[Mannix laughs]
George Reeves: Was it the line or the delivery?
Toni Mannix: I laugh when I'm happy.
George Reeves: I see. Well, who is it I'm making so happy?
Toni Mannix: I'm Toni.
George Reeves: Just a poor girl with no last name.
[Mannix laughs again]
George Reeves: I had no idea I could spread this much joy!
Toni Mannix: Who knows what you might be spreading?
[Reeves grins]
Toni Mannix: Your turn.
George Reeves: I'm afraid you've got me!

My mother told me to be wary of Fauns.


Leonard Shelby: How can you read that again?

Tatiana Rusesabagina: [while watching a neighbor get beaten] Do something.

Tatiana Rusesabagina: Call someone.
Paul Rusesabagina: [after shutting the gate] There is nothing we can do.

[to Johnny] That bag over there are letters 10 to 1 from girls. 10 to 1, and they're obscene. Reba's been trying to answer some of them but half of them ain't even 15, and they're sending pictures of themselves in bathing suits. Pictures for you to look at while you're doing time at Folsom.

Vivian Cash

Today's a training day, Officer Hoyt. Show you around, give you a taste of the business. I got 38 cases pending trial, 63 in active investigations, another 250 on the log I can't clear. I supervise five officers. That's five different personalities. Five sets of problems. You can be number six if you act now. But I ain't holding no hands, okay? I ain't baby-sitting. You got today and today only to show me who and what you're made of. You don't like narcotics, get the fuck out of my car. Go get you a nice, pussy desk job, chasing bad checks or something, you hear me?


[voice over narration] They hadn't found but one set of bones in the ashes of the house so we knew they'd be looking for us. Kit made sure we'd be prepared. He gave me lectures on how a gun works, how to take it apart, and put it back together again, in case I had to carry on without him. He said that if the devil came at me, I'd shoot him with a gun. One day I carried thirty pounds of wood a distance of file miles. Another day while hiding in the forest I covered my eyes with make up to see how they'd come out.
