[as they all observe the subway station]

[pause]
Swan: Just go back to where ever it was you came from.

Swan: I bet you can't even remember who you get on Friday and Saturday night... you probably don't remember what they look like...

Cochise: [on subway, after escaping Turnbull ACs] Yeah, well we made it, and in a hour, it is C-I! The BIG Coney!

Swan: We're going in there just like all the other guys.
Ajax: Just because some jerk named Cyrus wants a conclave and a truce, doesn't mean that it's a good thing. I'm sick of hearing about Cyrus.

Ajax: Sure thing, Warchief.
[We cut to the film's normal opening, which shows the Wonder Wheel at night]

Cowboy: Okay, what are we gonna do now?
Swan: We're going back.
Vermin: You mind tellin' me how? Fuckin' Coney Island must be 50 to 100 miles from here!

Swan: We got somethin' else to think about then the cops.
Vermin: Yeah, what?
Snow: The truce. Is it still on?
Vermin: If it ain't, we're gonna have to bop our way back!
Cowboy: Shit, I wish we was packed.

Swan: If you get separated, make it to the platform at Union Square. That's where we change trains.
Ajax: I only got one question. Who named you leader? I got just as much right to take over as you.
Fox: It was Cleon's choice, Swan's war chief.
Ajax: Well, right about now, Cleon's most likely got a nightstick shoved halfway up his ass!

Swan: You still looking for us?
Masai: [looks at Luther] We've found what we're looking for.
Luther: [cowering] No. No... It wasn't us. It was them. It was the Warriors.
Masai: You Warriors are good. Real Good.
Swan: The best.
Masai: The rest is ours.
[Swan nods his head in agreement as the Gramercy Riffs let the Warriors pass]
Luther: [as the Gramercy Riffs descend on the Rogues] Nooooooo!

Swan: The best.

Mercy: Hey, see those dudes over there? They're onto you.
Swan: I know they're on my ass. But now they know I know it.

Ajax: Check it out. It's those bald-headed fucks' hangout.
Swan: We're gonna have to march our way through. It's the only way to the next station.
Snow: There ain't no more truce. We're gonna have to bop all the way home.

Cowboy: Check it out, Swan. Big turnout tonight. You sure we're ready for this?
Swan: We wouldn't be here if we weren't.
Cowboy: [Spots Cleon and Vermin] Look who just showed up?
Cleon: Swan and Cowboy! I ain't seen you guys since you cut out!
Swan: [Looks at Vermin's Warriors vest] Yeah? Looks like we're not the only ones.
Cleon: We're all finished with that Destroyer bullshit. You were right about Virgil. Hey, you here to try and win some money?
Swan: No, we're here to WIN som money.
Cleon: Same old Swan! Well, you ain't dealt with the Warriors yet.
Announcer: All right, you pussies! Are you ready to beat the living shit out of each other or what? Welcome to the junkyard challenge! By looking at the sad bunch of tenderfoots, I'd say none of you are gonna walk away from this. Now remember, there's only one rule: Don't be a goddamn pussy! This is King of the Hill! Whoever holds the top longest, wins!

Swan: When we see the ocean, we figure we're home. We're safe.

Swan: [to Rembrandt] Make sure we're okay.
[Rembrandt climbs up a tall gravestone to scout for a train]
Swan: Did you see him get busted?
Cochise: I seen him, then he wasn't there no more! I was haulin' ass!
Cowboy: Okay, so what are we gonna do now?
Swan: We're going back. If this truce is off, anything could hit us between here and that train. If you get seperated, make it back to the platform at Union Square.
Ajax: I only got one question. Who named you leader?
Fox: It was Cleon's choice. Swan's War Chief.
Ajax: Yeah? Well, right about now, Cleon's most likely got a nightstick shoved halfway up his ass.
Swan: Maybe we outta talk about this later, huh?
Ajax: What's wrong with right now? I wanna be Warlord.
Swan: Make your move.
Cowboy: Hey, Ajax, lighten up!
Vermin: Big boy, Swan's War Chief.
Cochise: We'd better stick together.
Rembrandt: Hey guys! Train's right over there! Come on, let's go!
Swan: Let's move! Rembrandt, mark the spot.
Ajax: Fuck!
Rembrandt: [Sprays a "W" on a neaby gravestone, then notices the Warriors are walking away] Hey guys, wait for me!

Cleon: [at the Warriors' West Coney Hangout] ... That ain't the last we've heard from the Destroyers. They're gonna be back, and they ain't gonna play soft.
Swan: We gotta take care of the Destroyers soon. It's getting to be dangerous out there.
Cleon: The Destroyers ain't giving up. We gotta stay heavy if we're gonna take 'em down.
Swan: Virgil's gonna become a real problem for us. I can feel it.
Cleon: You just keep your cool, soldier. I know when we'll be ready.
Swan: We're always ready for those lame f***s.

Swan: [from "Quick Rumble"] Come on, chump! Let's see your moves...! You're in for it now, you p***k...! Make your move...! I'm gonna drive you into the dirt...! Why don't you run while I'm giving you the chance...? Look around! You got the balls for this...? I'll march right through you...! Looks like you found some trouble!
