Stansfield ("Stan")

I know where to find the guys who killed my brother. Their boss is Norman Stansfield, and he's in the D.E.A. building, room 4602. I'm gonna do them myself. If something goes wrong, I left you twenty grand on the table. It's for a contract -- five grand a head, right? I know I'll feel better after I do this." (voice-over, from note)

I think we're gonna be okay here, Leon.

If you really wanted to help it, you'd plant it in the park, so it could have roots. [in reference to Leon's treasured plant]

I like these calm little moments before the storm. It reminds me of Beethoven.

We said noon. I've got one minute past.

You don't like Beethoven. You don't know what you're missing. Overtures like that get my juices flowing. So powerful! But after his openings, to be honest, he does tend to get a little ****ing boring... That's why I stopped!

Jesus! Look what you did! LOOK- WHAT- YOU DID!

I have a lot of respect for your business, Tony. When you've killed for us in the past, w-we've always been satisfied. And that's exactly why today is going to be very, very hard for me.

My man was killed right here on your turf, and the Chinks tell me that the hit man was kind of the, uh, Italian type. So we figured Tony might know something. Wait, there's more - you're gonna love this. A few hours later, a little twelve-year-old girl comes into my office armed to the teeth, with the firm intention of sending me straight to the morgue. And you know who came and got her, in the middle of the afternoon, right there in my building? The very same Italian hit man. I'm dying to meet him!

Hey! Hey-ey-ey-ey-ey! I just said take the guy out, not the whole ****ing building!

What-what-what? There's two hundred men and you can't find one man and a girl? Did you find the girl?

Bring me everyone...[his subordinate asks him what he means] EV-ERY-ONE!!!

(To Mathilda) Do you like life, sweetheart? (She says yes) Good, because I take no pleasure in taking a life from someone who doesn't care about it.
