[to Madolyn] If we're not gonna make it, it's gotta be you that gets out, cause I'm not capable. I'm ****ing Irish, I'll deal with something being wrong for the rest of my life.


Costello: You're Johnny Sullivan's kid? You live with your grandmother?
Young Colin: Yeah.
Costello: Vin, get him a couple of bread, couple of half-gallons of milk. You like bologna and cheese? Get some cold cuts, frozen mayo, and... You like comic books? You do good in school?
Young Colin: Yeah
Costello: That's good. So I did too. They call that a paradox. Just keep it, buy yourself some make-up. You ever wanna earn a little extra money, you come by El-street. You know where I am in El-street, huh? Good. Good boy.

Costello: You know, if your father were alive, and saw you here sitting with me, let's say he would have a word with me about this. In fact, he'd kill seven guys just to cut my throat, and he could do it. That's maybe something you don't know about William Costigan, Sr.
Costigan: So he never? I mean, never?
Costello: No. He kept his own counsel. He never wanted money. You can't do anything with a man like that. Your Uncle Jackie - he also would kill my entire ****ing family if he saw me here with you. And I think about this.
Costigan: [confused] So what the **** are we talking about here?
Costello: Did you ever think about going back to school?
Costigan: School? [laughs] All due respect Mr. Costello, school is out.
Costello: Maybe someday you'll wake the **** up.

You sit there with a mass murderer. A mass murderer. Your heart rate is jacked. And your hand, steady. That's one thing I figured out about myself in prison. My hand does not shake. Ever.

Kneecapped Bankrobber: [after being shot in the knee] I thought you were supposed to go into shock! I'm not in shock! It ****in' hurts!

Singh: Bhenchod!, Kia kar rahay ho?(From Hindi, meaning: sister-****er what are you doing?)

Ellerby: [on getting married] Marriage is an important part of getting ahead. It lets people know you're not a homo. A married guy seems more stable. People see the ring, they think, "At least somebody can stand the son of a bitch." Ladies see the ring, they know immediately that you must have some cash, and your **** must work.
Sullivan: Yeah, it's workin'. Overtime!
Ellerby: I'm glad to hear that

[Costello meets with Sullivan in a porn theater, surprising him with a dildo]
Sullivan: Frank? What the **** is wrong with you?
Costello: [laughing] See anything you like, Colin?
Sullivan: I almost ****ing shot you!
Costello: You're not indulging in self-abuse, are you? I hope you're not turning into one of them sob sisters who wants to get caught. You're not cracking up, are you?
Sullivan: I don't crack up.
Costello: Picking a place like this, where any cop can see you. Jesus.
Sullivan: If it was such a ****ing bad idea, why'd you show up?
Costello: [turning to face Sullivan] I own the place.
Sullivan: I'm not ****ing surprised.
Sullivan: Look, I gotta tell you...
Costello: You're getting re-assigned. I know.
Sullivan: How the **** do you know that?
Costello: Where'd they put you?
Sullivan: Hey Frank, I gotta find myself.
Costello: You're telling me, sonny boy.
Sullivan: I gotta find the guy you got in the department.
Costello: With everybody looking up their own ass, and you looking for yourself, I'd put my money on nobody finds nothing.
Sullivan: I know, but Frank - look, for me, you gotta lay low. Right now.
Costello: Colin, laying low is not what I do.
Sullivan: Okay, ****ing big daddy Frank. ****ing perfect. But what good am I to you if you don't listen to me?

Costello: [about Madolyn] Do you like little Miss Freud sucking on your ****?
Sullivan: Yes, yes, I do.

Singh: What's wrong with this ****ing country? Everybody hates everybody!

Microprocessors. Yes, those. I don't know what they are, you don't know what they are, who gives a ****. Cash!

[In a porn theater]
Sullivan: I can get the rat. You just gotta let me do it my way, Frank.
Costello: Okay.
[hands Sullivan "Citizens Trust" envelope]
Costello: But Colin - I hope I don't have to remind you that if you don't find that cheese-eating rat bastard in your department, most likely it won't be me who suffers for it.
Sullivan: Now why would you have to remind me of that? Would I be any good at what I do if I didn't ****ing already know that? Frank, you gotta trust me. Alright, just trust me Frank. Hey, it ****ing involves lying and I'm pretty ****ing good at that. Right?
Costello: Maybe because it's always been so easy for me to get ****, that I never understood jacking off in a theater.

Yeah, and who forged your transcript, dickhead?

Your ****in' family's dug into the Southie projects like ticks. Three-decker men at best. You, however, grew up on the North Shore, huh? Well, la-di-****in'-da. You were kind of a double kid, I bet, right? Huh? One kid with your old man, one kid with your mother. You're upper-middle class during the weeks, then you're droppin' your "R"s and you're hangin' in the big, bad Southie projects with your daddy, the ****in' donkey on the weekends. I got that right? Yup. You have different accents? You did, didn't you? You little ****in' snake. You were like two different people!

I don't want to be a product of my envionment (sic). I want my envionment(sic) to be a product of me. Years ago we had the church. That was only a way of saying - we had each other. The Knights of Columbus were real head-breakers; true guineas. They took over their piece of the city. Twenty years after an Irishman couldn't get a ****ing job, we had the presidency. May he rest in peace. That's what the ****s don't realize. If I got one thing against the black chappies, it's this - no one gives it to you, you have to take it.
