Dillinger (1973)
Baby Face Nelson: One thing. If we're going to work together, I want it understood I don't take no orders.
Pretty Boy Floyd: I believe this is Mr. Dillinger's gang.
Baby Face Nelson: Bah! He ain't my leader, I've got my own way of taking banks. I come in shooting, I kill everyone inside and I grab the dough. Very easy, it works very well. You don't like it, you get someone else.

Baby Face Nelson: If he screams like that again, the hunters downstairs are going to call the cops.
John Dillinger: What do you expect me to do about it?
Baby Face Nelson: Finish him! I wouldn't ask no different!
Billie Frechette: Oh God, you can't do that!
Pretty Boy Floyd: Leave the boy be! He deserves a chance. A man deserves a chance.

John Dillinger: What chased you out of Cookson Hills, Floyd?
Pretty Boy Floyd: Well, the Feds were getting to my folks, and it's hard on them. And then damn Bonnie and Clyde ran through there. Weren't safe for no one. Bunch of mad dogs, that's what they were, and I ain't sorry to see them go.
John Dillinger: No; small timers get into it, and ruin it for everyone.

Pretty Boy Floyd: [in more pain] I wasn't in on that... I swear.
Melvin Purvis: You shouldn't be lying when you're so close to your maker.
Pretty Boy Floyd: [fading rapidly] You must be Purvis.
Melvin Purvis: That's right.
Pretty Boy Floyd: I'm. Glad. It. Was. You.

[Pretty Boy Floyd has been hiding with a farm family when he sees the FBI pull up]
Farm woman: Do you need a Bible?
Pretty Boy Floyd: [shakes his head ruefully] I admit, I have sinned; I have been a sinner, but I enjoyed it. I have killed men, but the dirty sons-of-bitches deserved it. The way I figure it, it's too late for no Bible. Thanks just the same, Ma'am.
