Quotes

Ben Shockley: Exactly. Reasonable suspicion. I can go anywhere I please if I have reasonable suspicion. Now if I have suspicion a felony's been committed, I can just walk right in here anytime I feel like it, 'cause I got this badge, I got this gun, and I got the love of Jesus right here in my pretty green eyes.

[calmly speaking like a stewardess to the passengers of the hijacked bus, as she is holding a gun]

Gus Mally: Sorry for this inconvience, ladies and gentlemen, but at this time, I'm afraid I'll have to ask you to leave the bus. Please be sure and take all your belongings with you and I promise arrangements will be made for your continued journey as quickly as possable.

Constable: I got this here buddy, he had the idea one time we'd open up a string of whorehouses and advertise them like them fried chicken places. "Finger lickin' good!"

Ben Shockley: You see we've got a problem, you and me. We don't like each other much but we have to take a trip together. Now you can come along peacefully or you can be a pain in the ass. But I'm warning you: You mess around and I'll put the cuffs on you. You talk dirty - I gag you. You run - I'll shoot ya. My name is Shockley and we've got a plane to catch. Let's go.

Constable: Hey c'mon talk to me, I wanna know what it's like being a whore.

Gus Mally: Actually, I always thought it was rather like being a cop.

Constable: You did? Hahaha...

Gus Mally: Yeah. Not unlike being on the take at two dozen bars in downtown Vegas. Taking money from some politician each time you peel his drunken kid's Cadillac off a telephone pole. Strong-arming the Chicanos in the barrio on Saturday night. Busting kids for smoking grass... then taking a kickback from the heroin dealers. Or those occasions when you do bust a pusher... and skim the haul when you've made the collar. Sell it to your dope addict buddies on the force.

Constable: She's sure onto all our tricks.

Gus Mally: As I see it, the only difference between you and me is that when I quit work I take a long hot bath and I'm as clean as the day I was born. But a cop, especially a flunkie like you, when the sheriff whistles - you squat. And what he does to you rots your brain. No amount of water on earth can get you clean again.

Gus Mally: You've got fluff in your brain and I'm afraid the only way you'll ever clean it out is to put a bullet through it. Does your wife know you masturbate?

Waitress: I was reading this article and it talked about flying. Said we'd all become just like cattle, trusting our lives to people we don't even know. Like pilots. Said we do it all the time. And like as not, we get our heads bashed in, like cattle, for being so trusting. I mean, did you ever stop to think about that? Like those pilots I dated - - hell, this article said half those guys are so snockered they don't even know what button to push. I mean hell, one minute you are flying 30,000 feet in the air and the next, sppbbblllttt! - -- you are splattered all over the ground... somebody's dachshund nipping at your pancreas.
