Danny Vinyard: [On Derek's change in prison] I'm sorry, Derek. I'm sorry that happened to you.
Derek Vinyard: I'm not. I'm lucky. I feel lucky because it's wrong, Danny. It's wrong and it was eating me up, it was going to kill me. And I kept asking myself all the time, how did I buy into this shit? It was because I was pissed off, and nothing I ever did ever took that feeling away. I killed two guys, Danny, I killed them. And it didn't make me feel any different. It just got me more lost and I'm tired of being pissed off, Danny. I'm just tired of it.


Cameron: You made the fat kid a little nervous. He thinks the joint messed with your mind.

Derek Vinyard: Yeah, but it doesn't even really matter if I don't, does it? 'Cause you got the next crop already lined up and ready to go you ****in' chicken hawk!
Cameron: Excuse me?
Derek Vinyard: You prey on people Cam. You use 'em. I lost three years of my life for your ****in' phony cause, but I'm onto you now you ****in' snake.
Cameron: Hey, Derek, watch it, watch it. Be careful, remember where you are this is not some ****in' country club where you can waltz in and outta here as you choose...
Derek Vinyard: Shut up! Shut the **** up, I came here, to tell you one thing, I am out,out, and Danny's out too and if you come near my family again, I'll feed you your ****ing heart.

"We are not enemies but friends.
We must not be enemies.
Though passion may have strained
It must not break our bonds of affection.
The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched,
as surely they will be by the better angels of our nature." ~ Abraham Lincoln.
