Stansfield ("Stan")

SWAT Leader: Alpha team -- final position. We're ready to go.
Stansfield: Be careful.
SWAT Leader: Alpha team -- man down, man down!
Stansfield: I told you.

Tony: In the meantime, all you gotta do is come here every once in a while and I'll dish it out so's you can have a little fun. Okay? Here's a hundred bucks to start with.
Mathilda: Can't I get a job instead?
Tony: A job? What the hell can you do?
Mathilda: I can "clean".
Tony: I ain't got no work for a twelve-year-old kid, so get it out of your goddamn head! It's OVER! The game's OVER! L?on's DEAD!
(Mathilda breaks down in tears.)
Tony: (softly) Come on. You think I ain't hurtin' too? But he's dead. And you're gonna forget all this craziness and get your little ass back to school. Capisce?

Tony: Now, you know Marizio's a reasonable guy. He just wants a little conversation. But this guy, he don't wanna hear about it. Maybe he'll listen to you. He comes to town every Tuesday. Are you free Tuesday?
L?on: Yeah, I'm free Tuesday.

Tony: You know, when you told me to get this baby out for you, I thought my hearing was going. I says to myself, "L?on's a pro. Nobody uses that except beginners."
L?on: I like to stay in shape.
Tony: Sure. Always stay on top of it. It's like me. I always gotta know where everything is all the time. That's why I never leave this place except to go from here to there. Change ain't good, L?on -- you know?
L?on: Yeah.
Tony: Check it. Make sure it's the right thing.
L?on: I trust you.
Tony: The one thing's got nothin' to do with the other. Remember that, L?on.
L?on: I will.

(As L?on and Mathilda enter hotel lobby, the desk clerk looks disapprovingly at the violin case they're carrying)
Hotel Clerk: You expect to use that in this hotel?
Mathilda: Mister -- I have to use it... because I have an audition at Juilliard next month, and I have to practice.
Clerk: Okay, okay, okay -- but not after ten.
Mathilda: Okay, I promise.
Clerk: All right. I'll put you at the end of the hall so you don't disturb anyone. (He sets some forms in front of L?on.) Fill those out, please.
Mathilda: Oh, um... Daddy, can I please fill them out? You know how I like to check into hotels. (L?on nods.) Thanks, Pop! (to Clerk) I'll bring these back in a minute.
Clerk: Uh... fourth floor.
Mathilda (running up stairway): Thanks, mister!
Clerk (to L?on): You're lucky to have a little girl who's interested in things. I got a kid, seventeen, does nothing all day long.

(Having emptied his gun into a suspect, Stan starts reloading.)
Malky: Stan, hey, what are you doing? What are you doing? He's dead!
Stansfield: But he ruined my suit!
Malky: Yeah, I know -- but he's dead! He's a piece of meat. Forget about it. Calm down.
Stansfield: I'm calm.
Malky: There are cops outside. We better go.
Stansfield, to Willy Blood: It's the cops outside. We better go. You stay here.
Willy Blood: What do you want me to tell them?
Stansfield: Tell them... we were doing our job.

(L?on, asleep, suddenly wakes and jerks upright.)
Mathilda: Relax. Everything's fine. Sleep well?
L?on: I never really sleep. Got one eye open always.
Mathilda: Yeah, I forgot. You know, I never saw someone with one eye open snore so much.
L?on: I snore?
Mathilda: Like a baby.

(Mathilda has entered Stansfield's office building by faking a food delivery; Stansfield has cornered her in a restroom.)
Stansfield: Special delivery, huh? Let me guess. Chinese? Thai, maybe? I've got it -- Italian food. What's your name, angel?
Mathilda: Mathilda.
Stansfield: Mathilda, I want you to set the sack on the floor. Good. (He draws a pistol.) And now, I want you to tell me everything you know about Italian food... and don't forget the name of the chef who fixed it for me.
Mathilda: Nobody sent me. I do business for myself.
Stansfield: So, th-th-this, this is something personal, is it? What filthy piece of shit... did I do now?
Mathilda: You killed my brother.
Stansfield: I'm sorry. (he moves in close to Mathilda.) And -- you wanna join him?
Mathilda: No.
Stansfield: It's always the same thing. It's when you start to become really afraid of death that you learn to appreciate life. Do you like life, sweetheart?
Mathilda (whispering): Yes.
Stansfield: That's good -- because I take no pleasure in taking a life if it's from a person who doesn't care about it.

(Mathilda is at the Spencer School for Girls.)
Mathilda: My parents... d-died in a car accident about four weeks ago. It was terrible.
Headmistress: You know, we didn't have the time to get to know one another when you first came here. But I want you to know that I'm not the kind of woman that would let down a child -- no matter what her situation, no matter what her mistake. So I'm going to help you and do my best to welcome you here again. But on one condition: you have to stop lying to me, Mathilda. I want you to take a chance, and trust me, and tell me what happened to you.
Mathilda: Okay. My family got shot down by D.E.A. officers because of a drug problem. I left with the greatest guy on earth. He was a hit man -- the best in town. But he died this morning... and if you don't help me, I'll be dead by tonight.

(Stansfield's men search Mathilda's "food" parcel.)
Willie-Blood: A nine millie... bullets... and another nine millie. What'd you plan to do with all these guns, huh?
DEA Agent: Maybe she was planning on taking out the whole building.
Willie-Blood: (opening pizza box) Holy shit, what do we got here? Lunch! (he starts eating a slice of pizza)
DEA Agent: Careful, Blood. Might be poisoned.
Willie-Blood: Nah, there's no anchovies on this.

[after seeing that Lèon has pulled a grenade pin] Shit. [the grenade explodes]

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

Can we try with real bullets now?

Death is... whimsical, today.

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