Stansfield ("Stan")
Tony


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!


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.)

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

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?

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

(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 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.

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

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

The rifle is the first thing you learn, because it lets you keep your distance from the client. The closer you get to being a pro, the closer you can get to the client. The knife, for example, is the last thing you learn.

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

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.

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.

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

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.
