Little girl: Are you sick?
Garland Green: Why do you ask?
Little girl: You look sick.
Garland: I am sick.
Little girl: Do you take medicine?
Garland: There is no medicine for what I have.


Vince Larkin: We pick up Mr. Sendino in Carson City. From then until the plane lands in Alabama, we've got two hours to get him to talk. We got you a seat right next to him. He's known to be somewhat garrulous in the company of thieves.
Duncan Malloy: "Garrulous"? What the **** is "garrulous"?
Larkin: That would be loquacious, verbose, effusive... how about chatty?
Malloy: (snorts) What's with dictionary boy, here?
Larkin: Thesaurus boy, I think, is more appropriate.

(Cyrus Grissom is holding the pilot at gunpoint.)
Cyrus the Virus: Say there was a disturbance but you've got it under control. Say it, or I will kill you.
Pilot: Without me you got nobody to fly the plane.
Cyrus: I never think that far ahead.

(Cyrus has made a map in the dirt using various bits of junk to represent buildings at Lerner Field.)
Cyrus: Considering my audience, I'm gonna make this very quick and very simple. (points with a stick) This is the boneyard. This is the hangar. This is our plane.
Viking: What's that? (points at a rock.)
Cyrus: That's a rock.
Viking: O-okay.
Cyrus: The convoy will enter the boneyard here. Initially, we take out the first car, then we take out the last, creating a trap... an airtight cage filled with lots and lots of dead people. Nathan, get everybody in position, yeah? And bring me those propane tanks!

(In the plane's hold, Billy Bedlam has found Poe's personal effects — including Poe's parole certificate and the stuffed bunny he bought for his daughter.)
Poe: Put the bunny back in the box.
Billy Bedlam: I knew you was a punk, and I was right. You been playing us all along. You're a free man.
Poe: I said, "Put the bunny back in the box"!
...
Garland Green: Two went down. One came up.
Poe: Wasn't my fault.
Garland: Well, you don't have to tell me. Most murders are crimes of necessity rather than desire. But the great ones... Dahmer, Gacy, Bundy... they did it because it excited them.
Poe: Don't you... I got nothing in common with them — with you! Don't you talk to me! They were insane!
Garland: Now you're talking semantics.

(Swamp Thing fiddles with the plane's transponder, trying to disconnect it)
Pinball: You the Swamp Thing?
Swamp Thing: That's right.
Pinball: You flyin' the plane?
Swamp Thing: That's right.
(Swamp Thing finishes and hands him the transponder)
Pinball: It's amazing the shit you white trash know.
Swamp Thing: That's right!

(singing) "Oh, nothing makes me sadder than the agent lost his bladder in the... Ai-ai-airplane..."

[after being asked "Are you crazy?"] "According to my last psych evaluation...yes."

[on Cyrus "The Virus" Grissom] This one has done it all. Kidnapping, robbery, murder, and extortion. His name is Cyrus Grissom, A.K.A. Cyrus the Virus. Thirty-nine years old, twenty-five of them spent in our institutions. But he's bettered himself on the inside. Earned two degrees, including his juris doctorate. He's also killed eleven fellow inmates, incited three riots, and escaped twice. Likes to brag he's killed more men than cancer. Cyrus is a poster child for the criminally insane. He's a true product of the system.

[on Diamond Dog] Nathan Jones, A.K.A. Diamond Dog. Former general of the Black Guerillas. He blew up a meeting of the National Rifle Association saying, and I quote, "They represented the basest negativity of the white race." He wrote a book in prison, "Reflections in a Diamond's Eye." New York Times called it a wakeup call for the black community. They're talking to Denzel for the movie.

[on William "Billy Bedlam" Bedford] "He caught his wife in bed with another man, left them alone, drove four towns over to his wife's family's house. Killed her parents, her brothers, her sisters, even her dog."

[while slamming Johnny 23's head into a cage repeatedly] "Don't treat women like that!"

There's no medicine for what I have.
