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.

[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.

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

Yeah, and who forged your transcript, dickhead?

[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: [slaps fly] You know what I like about restaurants?

[to Costello] You accuse me once, I put up with it. You accuse me twice... I quit. You pressure me to fear for my life and I will put a ****ing bullet in your head as if you were anybody else. Okay?

Costello: How's your mother?
Man in Bar: She's on her way out.
Costello: We all are, act accordingly.

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.
