[To the Rabbi and the Boss] The two of you killed everyone I ever loved. (Pause) **** you both.


Slevin's Girlfriend: [after Slevin walks in on her cheating on him] This is an accident.
Slevin: What, like... He tripped, you fell?

I'm going to say the same thing a man with two penises says when his tailor asks him if he dresses right or left. Yes.

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.

Elvis: Wait, wait, wait. Look Nick, Slevin, Clark Kent, whatever the **** your name is. The fact of the matter is that the Virgin Mary herself could come waltzin' in here right now with her fine ass, titties hangin' out and everything and if she told me your name was Jesus Christ, I still got to take you to see the Boss. You know why?
Slevin: No.
Elvis: Orders. And you do know what orders is right?
Slevin: I think I understand the concept of-
Elvis: Orders is "orders".
Slevin: I guess no one ever taught you not to use the word your defining in the definition.
[Elvis punches him]
Elvis: Nigga say somethin' else. I will break your mother****ing nose. I ain't playin' with you.
Slevin: My nose is already broken.

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."

Lindsey: What happened to your nose?
Slevin: I was using it to break some guy's fist.

Look at me. Look at my smile. Your son is dead.

Are you familiar with the schmoo, Mr. Fisher?

I bet it was that mouth that got you that nose.

Y-you? Nahh... You're dead. You're DEAD!

[After he and Slevin approach a large freezer and look inside] Hey Slim, you know this cat? Slim? I'm sorry, it's no use. [Slim turns out to be a frozen corpse] Ever since somebody shot him ol' Slim's gone deaf.

If there's one thing I know, is when someone is lying. A man in my position, that's all he has to go on. To know a lie when he hears it: the difference between life and death... your own... someone else's. That being said, he wasn't lying.

The unlucky are nothing more than a frame of reference for the lucky, Mister Fisher. You are unlucky, so I may know that I am not. Unfortunately the lucky never realize they are lucky until it's too late. Take yourself for instance; yesterday you were better off than you are today but it took today for you to realize it. But today has arrived, and it's too late... You see? People are never happy with what they have. They want what they had. Or what others have...I'm a bad man who doesn't waste time wondering what could've been when I am what could've been and what could not have been. I live on both sides of the fence, and the grass is always green.

[Repeated Line] I'm Slevin.
