Slevin: Listen, I've been hearing that a lot lately--
The Rabbi: [interrupting] My father used to say: "The first time someone calls you a horse you punch him on the nose, the second time someone calls you a horse you call him a jerk but the third time someone calls you a horse, well then perhaps it's time to go shopping for a saddle."


Slevin: Ok, I'm under the impression that you're under the impression that I owe you 96,000 dollars.
The Boss: No, you owe Slim Hopkins 96,000 dollars. You owe Slim, Slim owes me... You owe me.

Slevin: Someone's trying to kill you.
Yitzchok: Who?
Slevin: Me.

Slevin: This isn't the first time this has happened, you know.
Lindsey: You mean this isn't the first time a crime lord asked you to kill the gay son of a rival gangster to pay off a debt that belongs to a friend whose place you're staying in as a result of losing your job, your apartment, and finding your girlfriend in bed with another guy?
Slevin: No, this is the first time THAT happened, but Nick has been painting me into corners since we were kids.

Slevin: Who are you?
The Boss: I'm The Boss.
Slevin: I thought he was The Boss.
The Boss: Why? Do we look alike?

Sloe: The Boss wants to see you.
Slevin: Who?
Sloe: The Boss.
Slevin: Who's the Boss?
Sloe: The guy we work for. Sit
Slevin: Look. I'm not the guy you're looking for. I don't live here.
Sloe: Yeah well you look like the guy who lives here.
Slevin: Man, you don't know what the guy who lives here looks like.
Elvis: What he means to say is that you look like you live here.
Sloe: Yeah, that's what I mean to say.

Sloe: The guy we lookin' for. His name is uh, his name is-
Elvis: His name is Nick, man.
Sloe: Nick, yeah. The cat's name is Nick. Now who, who are you?
Slevin: I'm Slevin.(Sloe mutters the name confused for a minute)
Sloe: You got some ID?(Short pause)
Slevin: You see the funny thing about that is I got mugged this morning-
Sloe: Hey! Tell it to the one-legged man, so he can bump it off down the road.

Smith: There was a time.
Buddy: [wakes up, sees a man in a wheelchair is addressing him, and checks his watch] 4:35.
Smith: You misunderstood. I wasn't asking for the time, I was just saying "there was a time."
Buddy: There was a time?
Smith: Mm-hmm. Take Brown Sugar back there, for example. [indicates elderly woman] She's pretty ****ing foxy, right?
Buddy: [pause] She's seventy.
Smith: If she's a day. But there was a time.

The Boss: They call him "the Fairy"...
Slevin: Why do they call him "the Fairy"?
The Boss: [impatiently] Because he's a fairy.
Slevin: What, he's got wings, he can fly, he sprinkles magic dust all over the place?
The Boss: [angrily] He's a homosexual.

The Boss: You? You're the triggerman.
Slevin: Me?
The Boss: You.
Slevin: Aren't there professionals? People you can hire to do this sort of thing?
The Boss: [Laughing] Of course there are. Yes. But you owe me 96,000 dollars. Why should I go out and pay someone else when I've already paid you?

The Boss: [after Slevin has just told him he'll take the job killing the Rabbi's son] I knew you had sense.
Slevin: Sense is something you have when you have a choice.
The Boss: Sometimes, and sometimes it's when you know you don't.

The Boss: [Showing a picture] This was my son. Notice how I said was? That's because he's dead. Relegated to the past tense. Went from an is to a was before he had his breakfast.
Slevin: Bummer.

The Rabbi: There are three things one may not do to save a life including his own. He may not: idol-worship, commit adultery, or perform an act of premeditated murder. Killing you before you killed me would be...
Slevin: Kosher?
The Rabbi: [scathing noise] Acceptable.

The Rabbi: You must be Mr. Fisher.
Slevin: Must I be? Because it hasn't been working out for me lately.
The Rabbi: But I'm afraid you must.
Slevin: Well, if I must.

The Rabbi: [whispering to Slevin] Whatever they're paying you...
[smiles slyly]
Slevin: [chuckles slightly] There is no "they..." I did this to you. Me.
The Rabbi: You?
Slevin: Me.
The Boss: Who are you?
