Lucky Number Slevin (2006)
The Boss: I bet it was that mouth that got you that nose.

Slevin: I'm sorry, who are you?
The Boss: I'm The Boss.
Slevin: I thought he was The Boss.
The Boss: Why? Do we look alike? So, Mr Fisher, you were gonna tell me something?
Slevin: I don't know, you brought me here.
The Boss: Yes I did. Back when you thought I was him.
Slevin: I didn't think you were him, I thought he was you. And I was trying to tell him - you that they picked up the wrong guy.
The Boss: The wrong guy for what?
Slevin: Whatever it is you wanna see me about.
The Boss: Do you know what I wanna see you about?
Slevin: No.
The Boss: Then how do you know I got the wrong guy?
Slevin: Because I'm not...
The Boss: Maybe I want to give you $96,000. In that case do I still have the wrong guy?
Slevin: Do you wanna give me $96,000?
The Boss: No, do you wanna give me $96,000?
Slevin: No, should I?
The Boss: I don't know, should you?
Slevin: I don't know, should I?
The Boss: [pause] Long story short.
Slevin: I think we're well past that point.
The Boss: I bet it was that mouth that got you that nose.
Slevin: Okay, I'm under the impression that you're under the impression that I owe you $96,000...?
The Boss: No, you owe Slim Hopkins $96,000. You owe Slim, Slim owes me. You owe me.

The Boss: That's all there is to it.
Slevin: Is that all there is to it?
Mr. Goodkat: Yup... That's all there is to it.

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

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

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. Sometimes it's when you know you don't.

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

Slevin: Anything else you want to tell me?
The Boss: I suppose I don't need to say anything as trite and cliched as "go to the police and you're a dead man".
Slevin: I think you just did.
The Boss: I guess I did.

The Boss: [shows Slevin the body of Slim in his freezer] Hey, Slim? Do you know this cat? Slim?
[turns to Slevin]
The Boss: No use. Ever since somebody shot him, old Slim went deaf.
Slevin: What happened to make Slim go deaf?
The Boss: Why?
Slevin: Well, because I owe you $96,000, and I might have a slight problem coming up with the money.
The Boss: Oh, okay. Well, why don't we just make it an even 90?
Slevin: I... may have exaggerated the slightness.

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?

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

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. Why should I go out and pay someone else when I've already paid you?

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.

The Boss: Are you familiar with the Shmoo?

The Boss: Look at me, look at me smile, your son is dead!

The Boss: I hired you to do a job. It wasn't supposed to look like a job. So you take out the Israelis, bomb the damn building and now the job that was not supposed to look like a job is beginning to look very much... like a job.
