Note from the Webmaster: I messed up with the database once, and some quotes are now showing under the wrong film :-/... I am trying to fix this, but you can always report such mistakes.
Most people think Marv is crazy. He just had the rotten luck of being born in the wrong century. He'd be right at home on some ancient battlefield swinging an axe into somebody's face. Or in a Roman arena, taking his sword to other gladiators like him. They would've tossed him girls like Nancy back then.
I don't have a chance in hell of outrunning this cop. Not in this heap. The only question left is whether I'm gonna kill him or not. Tough call. For all I know, he's an honest cop, regular guy. Working stiff with a mortgage, a wife and a pile of kids.
It's time to prove to your friends that you're worth a damn. Sometimes that means dying, sometimes it means killing a whole lot of people.
I take his weapons away from him. Both of them.
Let go of my coat, Bob.
This guy smells awful. Like bad food. Like a corpse left in a garbage dumpster in the middle of summer, he stinks so bad I want to throw up.
[During his execution] Will you get a move on, I haven't got all night.
[Last words] Is that the best you can do, you pansies?
Can't kill a man unless you know for sure you ought to.
Wish you coulda dropped by earlier, Jackie-Boy. You coulda met my new boyfriend. Coulda seen what a real man looks like.
Jackie-Boy, it's a regular African love-fest in here. I got me all five starters and half the bench of the Basin City Blues keeping me company. You feel like taking them on?
Shut up and keep your hands to yourself or I'll cut your little pecker off!
Let me stay close. Nothing can happen to me when I'm with you. Please? Let me stay close.
And here I thought you'd forgotten all about me. Me and my dumb letters.
I didn't scream, Hartigan. Not once. I didn't scream
It's one thing for you to play hard to get... but don't go trying to cut my nuts off.
You're makin' a big mistake, man... a big mistake.
Nobody ever really quits. A smoker's a smoker when the chips are down. And your chips are down.
My man will find a way. He always finds a way.
We got guns. We'll fight the cops, and the mob, and anybody who tries to move in on us. We'll go to war!
It's not a woman you need, it's a good night's sleep. You couldn't handle a woman in the state you're in.
You could've ripped my throat out, you crazy whore!
I didn't have no choice. They were gonna hurt my mom.
Marv (Mickey Rourke)
→ 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 (Carla Gugino)
→ Prison was hell for you, Marv. It'll be life this time.
→ 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 faggot jury. Hell is waking up every god damn morning and not knowing why you're even here. Why you're even breathing.
Hartigan (Bruce Willis)
→ I'm looking for Nancy Callahan?
Shellie (Brittany Murphy)
→ Eyes to the stage, pilgrim. She's just warming up.
→ You sat there and took it... when you could've taken my gun away from me any time you wanted to...
Marv (Mickey Rourke)
→ 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.
Cardinal Roark (Rutger Hauer)
→ Will that bring you satisfaction, my son? Killing a helpless, old, fart.
Marv (Mickey Rourke)
→ Killing? No. No satisfaction. Everything up until the killing, will be a gas.
→ [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.
→ Care for a smoke'"
The Customer (Marley Shelton)
→ Sure, I'll take one. Are you as bored by that crowd as I am?
→ 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.
→ What is it you see in my eyes?
→ 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.
→ No, I don't want to face it alone.
→ [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.
