Two Bob: Some bugger who fuckin' hates every other bugger.
Samuel Stote: Hey, I didn't ask you, you black bastard
Arthur Burns: He's right Samuel. A misanthrope is one who hates humanity.

Arthur Burns: Good lord no. We're a family.

Officer Dunn: Who the fuck left Danny Boy out in the sun?

Two Bob: You got the wrong fuckin' black man.
Arthur Burns: Slowly now, Sergeant. Put your privates back in your pants and turn around. Come to steal my brother a horse, and we find ourselves a copper.

Arthur Burns: Why can't you ever just... stop me?

[last lines]
Arthur Burns: You got me, Charlie. What are you going to do now?

Jellon Lamb: [dying words] There's night and day brother, both sweet things. Sun and Moon and stars, all sweet things. And quiet, there's a wind on the east. Life is very sweet, brother.
Arthur Burns: Life is very sweet, brother, who would wish to die?
Jellon Lamb: Ah.
Arthur Burns: George Borrow, I believe. A worthy writer, and a beautiful sentiment sir. But you're not my brother.

Charlie Burns: They're hanging Mikey come Christmas day.
Arthur Burns: When's Christmas, Charlie?
