Vincent: I don't know how to do anything else.

Vincent: I don't much want to either.

Vincent: Seven years in Folsom. In the hole for three. McNeil before that. McNeil as tough as they say?
Neil: You lookin' to become a penologist?
Vincent: You lookin' to go back? You know, I chased down some crews; guys just lookin' to **** up, get busted back. That you?
Neil: You must've worked some dipshit crews.
Vincent: I worked all kinds.
Neil: You see me doin' thrill-seeker liquor store holdups with a "Born to Lose" tattoo on my chest?
Vincent: No, I do not.
Neil: Right. I am never goin' back.

Vincent: So you never wanted a regular type life?
Neil: What the **** is that? Barbeques and ballgames?
Vincent: Yeah.
Neil: Regular type life, like your life?
Vincent: My life? No.. no, my life's a disaster zone. I got a stepdaughter so ****ed up because her real father's this large-type asshole. I got a wife, we're passing each other on the down-slope of a marriage — my third — because I spend all my time chasing guys like you around the block. That's my life.
Neil: A guy told me one time, "Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner." Now, if you're on me and you gotta move when I move, how do you expect to keep a... a marriage?
Vincent: That's an interesting point. What are you a Monk?
Neil: I have a woman.
Vincent: Yeah, what do you tell her?
Neil: I tell her that I'm a salesman.
Vincent: So, if you spot me commin' around that corner...You just gonna walk out on that woman?
Neil: That's the dicipline.

Vincent: You know, we are sitting here, you and I, like a couple of regular fellas. You do what you do, and I do what I gotta do. And now that we've been face to face, if I'm there and I gotta put you away, I won't like it. But I tell you, if it's between you and some poor bastard whose wife you're gonna turn into a widow, brother, you are going down.
Neil: There is a flip side to that coin. What if you do got me boxed in and I gotta put you down? Cause no matter what, you will not get in my way. We've been face to face, yeah. But I will not hesitate. Not for a second.
Vincent: Maybe that's the way it'll be...Or, who knows?
Neil: Or maybe we'll never see each other again.

Waingo: Look, I had to get it on man, he was making a moove!! I had to get it on!!

[Last words of the film, as McCauley lies dying]
Neil: Told you I'm never going back.
Vincent: Yeah.

[Over the phone]
Roger Van Zant: What are you doing?
Neil: What am I doing? I'm talking to an empty telephone.
Van Zant: I don't understand.

[Vincent and his team are standing in the same spot Neil and his gang were standing looking at something.]
Vincent: I got an idea what they're looking at.... You know what they're looking at?... I mean — is this guy something, or is he something?... This crew is good!... You wanna know what they're looking at?
Dr. Bob: What?
Vincent: Us.... The L-A-P-D.... Po-lice Department.... We just got made...

Don't waste my mother****ing time!

He knew the risks, he didn't have to be there. It rains... you get wet.

I am double the worst trouble you ever thought of.

I don't even know what I'm doing anymore. I know life is short, whatever time you get is luck. You want to walk? You walk right now. Or on your own... on your own you choose to come with me. And all I know is... all I know is there's no point in me going anywhere anymore if it's going to be alone... without you.

I gotta hold on to my angst. I preserve it because I need it. It keeps me sharp, on the edge, where I gotta be.

I say what I mean, and I do what I say.

I'm alone, I am not lonely.
