What do you say, Jen? One more time for the sweet souvenir?

This is a night for America!

Everything you see belongs to me, to one degree or another. The beggars and newsboys and quick thieves here in Paradise, the sailor dives and gin mills and blind tigers on the waterfront, the anglers and amusers, the she-hes and the Chinks. Everybody owes, everybody pays. Because that's how you stand up against the rising of the tide.

That, my friends, is the minority vote.

Burn him, see if his ashes turn green.

Fine waistcoat. Shame about it, I don't think it can be mended. Will I keep it as a souvenir?!

Look, I want you to see this. This is you, right here! Notch 45, you Irish bog bastard.

I have a hole in my shoulder and it hurts, so have a drink and shut up or shut up and get out.

Why, because they come off a boat crawling with lice and begging you for soup.

We hold in our hearts the memory of our fallen brothers whose blood stains the very streets we walk today. Also on this night we pay tribute to the leader of our enemies, an honorable man, who crossed over bravely, fighting for what he believed in. To defeat my enemy, I extinguish his life, and consume him as I consume these flames. In honor of Priest Vallon.

Oopsie-daisy!

I want you's all to meet the son of Priest Vallon. I took him under my wing and see how I'm repaid? Saves my life one day so he can kill me the next like a sneak-thief, instead of fighting like a man. A base defiler. Unworthy of a noble name.

This is fresh meat. What I mean is we need to tenderize this meat a little bit. Okay, let's kiss goodnight to that pretty young face of yours.

[Last words] Thank God. I die a true American.
