Colin Sullivan: You're an FBI informant? Are you fucking kidding me?
Frank Costello: Grow up!
[laughing]
Frank Costello: Of course I talked to the FBI.
Colin Sullivan: Do they know who I am?
Frank Costello: I... I never gave up anybody... who wasn't going down anyway. Nobody knows nothin'.
Colin Sullivan: Frank... Frank. Do they know about me?
Frank Costello: I know about you, Colin. You know I'd never give you up. You're like a...
Colin Sullivan: What, like a son? To you? Is that what this is about? All that murderin'... and fuckin'... and no sons?
[They shoot at each other]

One of us had to die. With me, it tends to be the other guy.

Frank Costello

You got a nice suit at home or do you like coming to work everyday dressed like you're goin' to invade Poland?

Colin Sullivan

Colin Sullivan: Do you know what will happen if you shoot me?
Billy Costigan: Yeah, this bullet will go right through your fucking head!

I'm gonna go have a smoke right now. You want a smoke? You don't smoke, do ya, right? What are ya, one of those fitness freaks, huh? Go fuck yourself.

Ellerby

Lazio: Do you have anyone in with Costello presently?
Dignam: Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe fuck yourself.

Colin Sullivan: Alright, Frank... I need you to get me names, social security numbers and all that...
Frank Costello: Give you? Give you? Who the fuck do you think you are working for?
Colin Sullivan: I'm sorry, I'm sorry...
Frank Costello: I'm just fucking with you. But, you better get organized.

Ellerby: Go fuck yourself.
Dignam: I'm tired from fucking your wife.
Ellerby: How is your mother?
Dignam: Good, she's tired from fucking my father.

Oliver Queenan: Do you have any idea what we do in our department?
Billy Costigan: As a matter of fact, I do. I...
Dignam: Let's say you have no idea, zero, none. If you had an idea about we do we wouldn't be good at what we do now would we? We would be cunts, you callin' us cunts?

Ellerby: [on Sullivan getting married] Marriage is an important part of getting ahead. It lets people know you're not a homo. A married guy seems more stable. People see the ring, they think, "At least somebody can stand the son of a bitch." Ladies see the ring, they know immediately that you must have some cash, and your cock must work.
Colin Sullivan: [laughs nervously] Yeah, it's workin'. Overtime!

You don't get to tell me what to do ever again.

Lester Burnham

Lester Burnham: Remember those posters that said, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life?" Well, that's true with every day except one: the day that you die.
