Stansfield ("Stan")

L?on: Mathilda -- don't you ever do that again or I'll break your head. You got that?
Mathilda: Okay.
L?on: I don't work like that. It's not professional. There is rules.
Mathilda: Okay.
L?on: And stop saying "okay" all the time, okay?
Mathilda: Okay.
L?on: Good.

L?on: Tony, all the money I make that you keep for me --
Tony: You need some money?
L?on: Just curious. 'Cause I've been working for a long time and I haven't done anything with my money.
Tony: You met a woman.
L?on: No.
Tony: L?on... L?on, you gotta be careful with women. Remember when you first arrived in this country? When I took you in you were still wet behind the ****in' ears, and already you were in deep shit because of a woman. Don't forget that, L?on.
L?on: I wish I could sometimes. You know, about my money -- maybe I could give a little to someone, you know, to help out.
Tony: Hey, it's your money. I mean, I'm just holding it for you, like a bank. Except better than a bank, 'cause you know banks always get knocked off. No one knocks off old Tony.

L?on: Why did you hide the cigarette?

(L?on notices the bruise on her face.)

Mathilda: Where to?
L?on: Not my problem.
Mathilda (setting note in front of L?on): Read it.
L?on: Uh -- (stares blankly at note.)
Mathilda: You don't know how to read.
L?on: I'm learning, but I've had a lot of work lately, so... I'm a little behind. What's it say?
Mathilda: I've decided what I want to do with my life. I wanna be a cleaner.
L?on: You wanna be a cleaner? [sets a pistol on table] Here, take it. It's a goodbye gift. Go clean -- but not with me! I work alone, understand? Alone!
Mathilda: Bonnie and Clyde didn't work alone! Thelma and Louise didn't work alone! And they were the best.

L?on:I won't be long.
Mathilda:Did I do something wrong?
L?on:No. This one is too big.
Mathilda:Yeah, and I only get the leftovers, is that it?

L?on:Mathilda since I met you everything been different. So I just need some time alone. You need some time to grow up a little.
Mathilda:I finished growing up, Leon. I just get older.
L?on:For me its the opposite. I'm old enough. I need time to grow up.

Lando (Mathilda's father): I don't know what happened. What's my job? I'm a holder. I don't look at it, I don't touch it -- I don't even know how to cut it.
Malky: Try to follow me, all right? In June, we give you the dope. It tests a hundred percent pure. Now it's July, we pick up the dope, and it tests ninety percent pure. Now somewhere between June and July, ten percent turned to cut!
Lando: I don't know -- it's none of my business. You give me the stuff, I hold the stuff. That's all I know.
Malky: Look -- you know, I'm trying to help you out here. But, you know, if you're gonna be a hard-ass about it, I gotta disturb him. (he points at Stansfield) Let me tell you, when he's into his music, he hates being disturbed.
Lando: I'm telling you the truth!
Malky: I hope so, because he's got a talent for sniffin' out a lie. It's scary. It's almost like a sixth sense. Are you gonna change your tune, or I gotta bust into his?
Lando: I'm telling you the truth.
Malky: (sighs) All right. (to Stansfield) Stan, uh... sorry. He says he didn't cut the dope.
Stansfield: Oh. (he approaches Lando and sniffs the air around him for several minutes) Of course he didn't. Just do me a favor. Find out who did by tomorrow -- noon.

Malky: Benny! Benny, we're coming out! (Benny fires anyway, nearly hitting Malky) JESUS ****ING CHRIST, BENNY! It's Malky and Stan!

Mathilda (on telephone): Hello?
Caller: This is Margueritte McAllister, headmistress of the Spencer School for Girls in Wildwood, New Jersey. Is Mr. or Mrs. Lando home?
Mathilda (faking deeper voice): Yes, this is she.
Caller: Mrs. Lando, when your husband enrolled Mathilda at Spencer, he told us she had "problems". Well, as you know, we pride ourselves on turning troubled girls into healthy, productive young women. But if they are not here, there is very little we can do. Now, Mathilda left school without permission nearly two weeks ago. I know your husband paid tuition in advance for a year, but if you will refer to page twenty of the rules and regulations manual we sent you, you will see you will see that unless there is a valid excuse for prolonged absence, your tuition will be forfeit.
Mathilda: She's dead. (She hangs up.)

Mathilda: Follow the blue car.
Cab Driver: And I suppose you want me to blast the music and go through the lights, eh?
Mathilda: No. Drive slowly, take the hundred bucks, and shut the **** up, okay?

Mathilda: Is life always this hard, or is it just when you're a kid? [while nursing a bleeding nose, probably a result of her father's beatings]
L?on: Always like this.

Mathilda: L?on, I think I'm kinda falling in love with you. It's the first time for me, you know?
L?on: How do you know it's love if you've never been in love before?
Mathilda: 'Cause I feel it.
L?on: Where?
Mathilda: In my stomach. It's all warm. I always used to have a knot there, and now it's gone.
L?on: Mathilda, I'm glad you... don't have a stomach ache anymore. I don't think it means anything.

Mathilda: Leon, I want you to teach me how to be like you. I want to be strong like you, smart like you.
L?on: Mathilda --
Mathilda: I know I'm not strong enough yet, but I could learn the basics -- the theory. What do you think? Just the theory.

Mathilda: Leon, what exactly do you do for a living?
L?on: Cleaner.
Mathilda: You mean you're a hit man?
L?on [reluctantly]: Yeah.
Mathilda: Cool.
Mathilda: Do you "clean" anyone?
L?on: No women, no kids. That's the rules.
Mathilda: How much would it cost to hire someone to get those dirtbags who killed my brother?
L?on: Five grand a head.
Mathilda: Wow. How about this: I work for you, and in exchange, you teach me how to clean. Hmmm? What do you think? I'll clean your place, I'll do the shopping, I'll even wash your clothes. Is it a deal?
L?on: No, it's not a deal/
Mathilda: What do you want me to do? I've got no place to go.
L?on: You've had a rough day today. Go to sleep now. We'll see in the morning.

Mathilda: You love your plant, don't you?
L?on: It's my best friend. Always happy, no questions. It's like me, you see? No roots.
Mathilda: If you really love it you should plant it in the middle of a park so it can have roots.
L?on: Yeah.
