Chili: So you're thinking what if I was to put you next to my dry cleaner. Ask him if he wants to invest his money in a movie.

Harry: Just a thought.


Chili: What is this?
Attendant: An Oldsmobile Silhouette.
Chili: I reserved a Cadillac.

Chili: What kinda food they serve at this Ivy place anyway?
Karen: Continental, but it doesn't matter. Martin won't order from the menu.
Chili: Why not?
Karen: Because a movie star can never order straight from the menu. They have to think of something they have to have that isn't on the menu.

Chili: You don't need that. You want to sit down and talk, it's fine with me. Get this straightened out. How'd you get in here?

Ray "Bones": Which also means when I speak, I'm speakin' for Jimmy. So e.g. as of now, you start affording me the proper respect.

Chili: Ask your man here.
Mob Guy: Best a my knowledge, e.g. means 'for example.'
Ray "Bones": E.g., i.e., **** you. The point is, I say jump, you say okay. Okay?

Ray "Bones": You got a miss. Leo Devoe. Guy's six weeks over.

Ray "Bones": How'd you know he died, he tell you?

Ronnie: The man you're steppin' on belongs to me and my partner.
Ray "Bones": He owes me money.
Ronnie: Get in line, bro.
Ray "Bones": I don't like waiting.
Ronnie: Tough shit, bro. This ain't Miami. You want something, talk to me.
Ray "Bones": Hey, ****ball, I don't need your permission. L.A.'s an open city.
Ronnie: Yeah, well, I just closed it.
