Marv: I had to fight some cops.
Lucille: Oh, that's lovely. You didn't happen to kill any of them, did you?
Marv: Not that I know of, but they know they been in a fight, that's for damn sure.


Marv: There's no settling down. It's going to be blood for blood and by the gallons. It's the old days. The bad days. The all-or-nothing days. They're back. There's no choices left and I'm ready for war.
Lucille: Prison was hell for you, Marv. It'll be life this time.
Marv: Hell? You don't know what hell is. None of you people do. Hell isn't getting beat up or cut up or hauled in front of some **** jury. Hell is waking up every god damn morning and not knowing why you're even here. Why you're even breathing.

Marv: Wait a minute. Why'd she call you Wendy?
Wendy: Because that's my name, you ape. Goldie was my sister, my twin sister.
Marv: I guess she was the nice one.

The Salesman: [voiceover] She shivers in the wind like the last leaf on a dying tree. I let her hear my footsteps, she only goes stiff for a moment.
The Salesman: Care for a smoke?"
The Customer: Sure, I'll take one. Are you as bored by that crowd as I am?
The Salesman: I didn't come here for the party, I came here for you. I've watched you for days, you're everything a man could ever want. It's not just your face, your figure, your voice. It's your eyes, all the things I see in your eyes.
The Customer: What is it you see in my eyes?
The Salesman: I see a crazy calm. You're sick of running, you're ready to face what you have to face but you don't want to face it alone.
The Customer: No, I don't want to face it alone.
The Salesman: [voiceover] The wind rises electric. She's soft and warm and almost weightless. Her perfume with sweet promise that brings tears to my eyes. I tell her that everything will be alright. That I'll save her from whatever she's scared of and take her far far away. I tell her I love her. [gunshot] The silencer makes a whisper of the gunshot. I hold her close until she's gone, I will never know what she was running from. I'll cash her check in the morning.

Wendy: You sat there and took it... when you could've taken my gun away from me any time you wanted to...
Marv: Sure, but I thought I might be able to talk some sense into you. And I probably would've had to paste you one, getting the gun and I don't hurt girls.

[after being shot several times] I'm doing fine, Bob. Never better...ready to kick your ass.

[after getting slashed by Miho] Out of nowhere... without any reason!

[During his execution] Will you get a move on, I haven't got all night.

[first lines] Just one hour to go. My last day on the job. Doctor's orders, heart condition. Angina he calls it. I'm polishing my badge and getting myself used to the idea of saying goodbye to it. It and the thirty odd years of protecting and serving and...blood and terror, the triumph that represents it. I think about Illiene's slow smile, about the thick fat steaks she picked up from the butcher's today. I think about the one loose end I haven't tied up. A young girl who's out there somewhere, helpless in the hands of a drooling lunatic.

[Last words] Is that the best you can do, you pansies?

[While police brutally try to blackmail him] This is just something I promised myself I'd pay for, now I'm paying it. You don't save a little girl's life and then turn around and throw her to the dogs. They want a confession? They won't get it.

A hardtop with a decent engine. And make sure it's got a big trunk.

And here I thought you'd forgotten all about me. Me and my dumb letters.

Aw, sugar, you just gone and done the dumbest thing in your whole life.

Aww, Jerks! They should've shot me in the head...and enough times to make sure.
