I kill a communist for fun, but for a green card, I gonna carve him up real nice.

Tony Montana

What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? You're not good.

Tony Montana

Another great night here at the Babylon, right? Okay. All right! Do another gram, you'll all be babblin' on.

M.C. at Babylon Club

Say hello to my little friend!

Tony Montana

Hey, Tony. Remember when I told you when you first started working for me, the guys that last in this business, are the guys who fly straight. Low-key, quiet. But the guys who want it all, chicas, champagne, flash... they don't last.

[narrating] Prison life consists of routine, and then more routine.

Red

Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.

Red

These walls are kind of funny. First you hate 'em, then you get used to 'em. Enough time passes, gets so you depend on them. That's institutionalized. They send you here for life, that's exactly what they take. The part that counts, anyways.

Red

[narrating] His first night in the joint, Andy Dufresne cost me two packs of cigarettes. He never made a sound.

Red

[narrating] I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don't want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I'd like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can't be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it.
I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.
