Sin City (2005)
Marv: I love hitmen. No matter what you do to them, you don't feel bad.

Marv: This is blood for blood and by the gallons. These are the old days man, 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's gonna be life this time.
Marv: Hell's waking up every goddamn day and not even knowing why you're here. But I'm out now. It took someone who was kind to me getting killed to do it. But I'm out. And I know exactly what I'm gonna do.

Marv: It wasn't you losers who killed Goldie. The guy who did that knew what he was doing. Still, you got to have something to tell me. Like who it was who sent you.
[Marv pistol whips him]
Marv: I don't hear you giving me any name, jerk. Guess when I shot you in the belly, I aimed a little too high.
[shoots him in the crotch]
Marv: You keep holding out on me like this, and I'm going to have to get really nasty.
Stan: It was Telly Stern passed me the order. Runs the tables over at the Triple Ace Club.
Marv: Thanks again.
[Shoots him in the head]

Marv: Modern cars - they all look like electric shavers.

Cardinal Roark: Kevin? Is that you?
Marv: [holding up Kevin's severed head] What's left of him, anyway. The dog ate the rest.

Cardinal Roark: Will that bring you satisfaction, my son? Killing a helpless, old, fart?
Marv: Killing? No. No satisfaction. Everything up until the killing, will be a gas.

Marv: [Narrating, watching Kevin go downstairs] Heading down for a midnight snack... and I can guess what kind.

Wendy: Kill em' for me Marv. Kill 'em good.
Marv: I won't let you down, Goldie.

Marv: So, you were scared, weren't you Goldie? Somebody wanted you dead and you knew it. Well, I'm gonna find that son of a bitch that killed you, and I'm gonna give him the hard goodbye. Walk down the right back alley in Sin City, and you can find anything.

Marv: The night's as hot as hell. It's a lousy room in a lousy part of a lousy town - I'm staring at a goddess. She's telling me she wants me. I'm not going to waste one more minute wondering how I've gotten this lucky. She smells like angels ought to smell, the perfect woman... the Goddess. Goldie. She says her name is Goldie.

Cardinal Roark: What the hell do you know...
Marv: I know it's pretty damn weird to eat people.

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

Marv: I've been framed for murder and the cops are in on it. But the real enemy, the son of a bitch who killed the angel lying next to me, he's out there somewhere, out of sight, the big missing piece that'll give me the how and the why and a face and a name and a soul to send screaming into hell.

Wendy: [Marv has just easily shrugged off the ropes] 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.

Marv: That's the thing with dames, sometimes all they gotta do is let it out and a few buckets later there's no way you'd know.

Priest #2: [Before Marv's execution] Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death...
Marv: Would you get a move on already? I haven't got all night.

Marv: I'll stare the bastard in the face as he screams to God, and I'll laugh harder when he whimpers like a baby. And when his eyes go dead, the hell I send him to will seem like heaven after what I've done to him.

Marv: I check the list. Rubber tubing, gas, saw, gloves, cuffs, razor wire, hatchet, Gladys, and my mitts.

[repeated line]
Marv: That there is one damn fine coat you're wearin'.

Marv: I know it's pretty damn weird to eat people.

Priest: ...ask yourself if that corpse of a slut is worth dying for.
Marv: Worth dying for.
[shoots priest]
Marv: Worth killing for.
[shoots him again]
Marv: Worth going to hell for.
[shoots him again]
Marv: Amen.

Marv: [while exacting revenge on Kevin] He never screams. Even after the dog has its fill and his guts are hanging out, he never screams.

Marv: Wait a second. 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.

Marv: [to Kevin] I got you now, ya little bastard. Let's see you hop around now.

[Marv's last line, blood pouring from his mouth, after the first shock from the electric chair]
Marv: Is that the best you can do, you pansies?
[They shock him again]

Marv: I'm on my feet for about ten minutes before the cops kick them out from under me. They don't ask me any questions. They just keep knocking the crap out of me and waving a confession in my face. And I keep spitting blood all over it and laughing at how many fresh copies they come up with. Then along comes this worm assistant district attorney who turns the recorder off and says if I don't sign their confession, they'll kill my mom. I break his arm in three places and I sign it.

Marv: Hell's waking up every goddamn day and not even knowing why you're here.

Marv: You can scream now if you want.

Cop: Sir! There's no sign of the target.
Marv: Here's a sign.
[comes up behind cop and swings hatchet into the cop's crotch]

Marv: [Marv is walking in the back door to Kadie's]
Marv: Walk down the right back alley in Sin City...
Bouncer: [the bouncer throws someone out the door] Leave your hands off Nancy!
Marv: [voiceover] ... and you could find anything.
[Marv steps over the man on the ground and walks right up to the bouncer]
Bouncer: That coat looks like Baghdad. So does your face. Take off!
[Marv jabs his thumbs into the bouncer's eyes and walks him backwards through the door]
Bouncer: Urrrghh... aaahhhhh! Ahhh!
[Marv throws him into a corner booth]
Maeve: [watching the whole thing] He's new here, Marv, he didn't know.

Marv: Lucille's my parole officer. She's a dyke, but God knows why. With that body of hers she could have any man she wants.

Lucille: [screaming] He made me WATCH! Christ, I could use a cigarette.
Marv: [narrating] That's the thing with dames; sometimes all they gotta do is let it out and a few buckets later there's no way you'd know.

Marv: What if I'm wrong? I've got a condition. I get confused sometimes. What if I've imagined all this? What if I've finally turned into what they've always said I would turn into? A maniac. A psycho killer.

Marv: [voiceover] Goldie's dead. I've been framed for murder. The cops are in on it.
Cop: [knocks on door] Open up! Police!
Marv: I'll be right out.
[flicks lighter shut]
Marv: [Door is blown off its hinges, taking several cops with it]

Marv: [Driving while grinding a man's face against the pavement] I don't know about you, but I'm havin' a ball.

[Marv has been mistaken for Goldie's murderer]
Marv: You crazy god-damn broad! Just take a look at this mug. Would any of you dames let me get close enough to you to kill you? None of you would, but Goldie... But she only did because she thought I could protect her. And I bet those cops didn't do a damn thing about those other girls, did they? But as soon as they had me for a fall guy they showed up, guns blazing. But they didn't get me and I've been killing my way to the truth ever since. So go ahead, doll, shoot me now, or get the hell out of my way.

Marv: That's one fine coat you're wearing.

Marv: I try to slow my heart down and breathe the fire out of my lungs.

Marv: [narrating] I don't know why you died, Goldie. I don't know why and I don't know how, I never even met you before tonight. But you were a friend and more when I needed one. And when I find out who did it, it won't be quick and quiet like it was with you. It'll be loud and nasty. My kind of kill. And when his eyes go dead the hell I send him to will seem like heaven after what I've done to him. I love you, Goldie.

Marv: [shows up at Lucille's apartment heavily bandaged] It's okay, Lucille. I was just grazed.

Marv: [Narrating] I've been having so much fun I forgot to take my medicine.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)
Marv: [takes a punch] Just another Saturday night...

Marv: [observes Ava] That right there is a dame to kill for...

Marv: [waking up next to a crashed car and a group of dead bodies] How did I get here? What have I done?

Nancy Callahan: Looks like trouble.
Marv: Looks like Christmas.

Marv: [to Dwight] Here we are pal. All of sudden this doesn't look like the brightest idea you ever had, huh?

Marv: [seeing Nancy covered in scars] Just give me a name.
[long pause]
Nancy Callahan: ...Roark.

[first lines]
Marv: Metal screams. Something hits me square in the chest. There's no up or down. I don't weigh a thing.

Marv: How did I get here? What have I done, and why? I can't remember for the life of me.

Marv: Why'd he call me "Bernie"?

Marv: What have I done, and why? I must have forgotten my medicine. I've got a condition. It's bad to forget your medicine when you've got a condition.

Marv: Remember when you did, remember what you did.
