And as long as I have teeth, I will bite you!

Eli Sunday

Aren't you a healer, and a vessel for the holy spirit? When are you coming over and make my son hear again? CAN'T YOU DO THAT?

Plainview

I'm your brother... from another mother.

Henry Brands

Drainage! Drainage, Eli! Drained dry, you boy! If you have a milkshake and I have a milkshake and I have a straw and my straw reaches across the room and starts to drink your milkshake. I drink your milkshake! I drink it up!

Plainview

You're a bastard from a basket.

Plainview

I'm going to bury you underground, Eli.

Plainview

[to Eli] That was one goddamn helluva show.

Plainview

Eli Sunday: Oh, Daniel, please... I'm in desperate times. I need a friend... I feel the walls closing in. I've sinned! I need help! I'm a sinner! I've let the Devil grab hold of me in ways I never imagined! I'm so full of sin.
Plainview: The Lord sometimes challenges us, doesn't he?
Eli Sunday: Oh yes he does! Yes he does! Oh! He's completely failed to alert me to the recent panic in our economy and this! I must have this! I've invested... my investments have... Oh, Daniel, I won't bore you, but I... If I could grab the Lord's hands for help I would, but he does these things all the time, these mysteries that he presents and while we wait, while we wait... wait for his word...
Plainview: You're not the chosen brother, Eli. It was Paul who was chosen. He found me and he told me about your land. You're a fraud.
Eli Sunday: Why are you talking about Paul? Don't say this... don't say this to me, Daniel.
Plainview: I did what your brother couldn't. I broke you and I beat you.

Plainview: There was that house in Fond Du Lac that Maurice LaConte built- do you remember?
Henry Brands: Mmm.
Plainview: I thought, when I was a boy, that was the most beautiful house I'd ever seen and I wanted it. I wanted to live in it and eat in it and clean it and even as a boy, I wanted to have children... to run around in it.
Henry Brands: You can have anything you like now, Daniel, and you should. Where are you gonna build it?
Plainview: Here, maybe. Near the ocean. Up the coast, away from this smell.
Henry Brands: Would you make it look like that house?
Plainview: I'm sure if I saw that house now it'd make me sick.

Do you think God is going to come down here and save you for being stupid? He doesn't save stupid people, Abel.

Eli Sunday

[to Paul Sunday] If I travel all the way there and find out that you're a liar, I'll find you and take more than my money back, is that alright with you?

Plainview

Eli Sunday: Daniel, I'm asking if you'd like to have business with the Church of the Third Revelation in developing this lease on young Bandy's thousand acre tract. I'm offering you to drill on one of the great undeveloped fields of Little Boston!
Plainview: I'd be happy to work with you.
Eli Sunday: You would? Yes, yes, of course. Wonderful.
Plainview: But there is one condition for this work.
Eli Sunday: Alright.
Plainview: I'd like you to tell me that you are a false prophet... I'd like you to tell me that you are, and have been, a false prophet... and that God is a superstition.
