"If you can't trust a South American drug lord, who can you trust, huh?"


[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.

"I've got a spot on my arm just for you!"

"'Lady' is a dog in a Walt Disney movie. My name is Bishop. Guard Bishop to you." ~ Guard Sally Bishop

"What if I told you 'insane' was working fifty hours a week in some office for fifty years at the end of which they tell you to piss off; ending up in some retirement village hoping to die before suffering the indignity of trying to make it to the toilet on time? Wouldn't you consider that to be insane?"

"Hey, Gomer! Thought you might need a little help escorting your old lady home." ~ Obnoxious drunk/future manslaughter victim

(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.

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

"Christ, they'll be slaughtered!"

[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.

(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!

"Someone alerted the authorities at Carson City. Someone told them about our Lerner rendezvous. Someone even killed poor Billy Bedlam. Now, could this all be coincidence? Perhaps. Then someone went and tied a rope to our plane. So I ask you: what is going on? And I answer: we have a traitor in our midst. Now, how do we flush a traitor? I'm not sure but if we count to three I will find out who is on my team and who is not. That would be one...two..."

Johnny "23" Baca: Shit, that's Garland Green, man.
Cameron Poe: The Marietta Mangler.
"Baby O" Odell: That skinny little man butchered thirty-some people up and down the eastern seaboard. They say the way he killed those people makes the Manson Family look like the Partridge Family!
Poe: Well...he's on the right flight.

"What do you think I'm gonna do? I'm gonna save the ****in' day."

"Put the bunny back in the box."
