U.S. Marshal Vince Larkin


"It's not difficult to surmise Nathan's feelings towards killing these guards; and my own proclivities are, uh, well-known and often-lamented facts of penal lore, but what I'm wondering is why you have any say in it at all?"


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.

"Well, Baby O, it's not exactly mai-tais and Yahtzee out here — but let's do it."

"Define 'irony': a bunch of idiots dancing around on a plane, to a song made famous by a band that died in a plane crash." [referring to Lynyrd Skynyrd ]

"'The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by observing its prisoners.' Dostoevsky said that, after doing a little time."

"If this thing goes bad, Larkin, I'm afraid my daughter won't understand. If you talk to my wife again, you tell her I love her... she's my hummingbird. I just couldn't leave a fallen man behind."

"He's a font of misplaced rage. Name your cliche: Mother held him too much or not enough, last picked at kickball, late-night sneaky uncle, whatever. Now he's so angry, moments of levity actually cause him pain... give him headaches. Happiness, for that gentleman, hurts."

Diamond Dog: Yee-ha! What's on your mind, hillbilly?
Cameron Poe: Now, let's see, what was I thinking? Oh, yeah — "Yee-ha," that's right. I was just wondering what a black militant - that would be you - is doin' taking orders from a white boy on a power trip? Now don't you think that's strange?
Diamond Dog: A means to an end my white friend, a means to an end. See, I can play house nigga till we get to where we're going... and then, the day of the Dog begins...shh.

Billy Bedlam: I thought I heard you say you was on north block.
Poe: That's right.
Billy Bedlam: Funny thing. I was on north block. I don't know you.
Poe: Now what do you think that means? Nothing. Not diddly-shit. See, there were 160 cats on north block, and I didn't want to know 159 of them. Which included you! What do you think about that?

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

"Now why couldn't you put the bunny back in the box?"

" You know, the next time you choose a human shield, you're better off not picking a two-bit negro crack-head."

"Goddamn it, Poe! It's time to fight, ****, or hit the fence! I suggest you hit the fence." ~ Baby O

"All right, you damn peckerwoods! Crack the knuckles and hit the crystals. We're about to put this baby down in a sandbox!" ~ Swamp Thing

"Before I kill you, Poe, I just want you to know that the last thing that little Casey Poe ever gets to smell will be my stinking breath."
