Tony


(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.


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?

(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.

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?

L?on: Why did you hide the cigarette?
Mathilda: This building is full of rats. I didn't want my old man to find out. Got enough problems.
(L?on notices the bruise on her face.)
L?on: What happened?
Mathilda: I fell off my bike.

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

I've seen better days. [after her family have been shot by corrupt DEA officers]

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

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.

I should hold the money for you till you're older. Like a bank, you know, except it's better than a bank, 'cause banks always get knocked off. No one knocks off old Tony.

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.

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

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

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!

If you don't help me I'll die tonight. I can feel it. And I don't wanna die tonight.
