Quotes

[Harry Doyle has been summoned by his parole officer]

Richie Evans: I got a call from the rest home today. She said that you were being a disruptive influence during lunch. That you refused to eat your spinach soufflé, and that you caused a riot. And that last night you made love to a woman.

Harry Doyle: Do you make love to women, Richie?

Richie Evans: Well, yes. Of course I do.

Harry Doyle: Then how come when you do it, you're a stud and when I do it I'm a disruptive influence to society.

Richie Evans: Because I'm only 28 and you're 72.

[Archie has just landed a job at Penguin's]

Archie Long: What'll it be, sport?

Yogurt boy: Let me have strawberry yogurt. No, chocolate. No... Strawberry!

Archie Long: Look, kid... Just take your time, okay? Let me know when you've made up your mind.

Yogurt boy: I've already made up my mind.

Archie Long: So do you want chocolate or strawberry?

Yogurt boy: Neither. I want amarillo.

[Archie starts to get it for him]

Yogurt boy: Hey, that's GELLOTTI! I asked for YOGURT!

Archie Long: [peering at it] I don't see any difference.

Yogurt boy: GELLOTTI is made out of CREAM! YOGURT is made out of BACTERIA CULTURE! Where were you raised, in a cave?

Archie Long: All right, all right...

[gets the yogurt for him]

Archie Long: ... What, did I leave something out?

Yogurt boy: What about my toppings? You're supposed to ask me what kind of toppings I want.

Archie Long: Okay... What kind of toppings do you want?

Yogurt boy: Do you have peanut butter M&M's?

[Archie starts to put those on the yogurt]

Yogurt boy: Hey, what are you doing? I didn't say I WANTED m&m's! I just asked if you HAD them!

Archie Long: Yeah, we got 'em.

Yogurt boy: Well, I don't want 'em! Do you have Oreo pieces?

Archie Long: [holding those up] You want 'em?

Yogurt boy: That's why I asked. And walnuts... NOT peanuts, WALNUTS. And jellybeans... NOT m&m's; I HATE m&m's... JELLYBEANS. And almond slices instead of walnuts.

[the sweating Archie brings him the completed yogurt]

Yogurt boy: Forget it; I'll just have it plain.

Archie Long: [forcing himself not to faint, Archie scrapes everything off the yogurt] You sure you still want it?

Yogurt boy: Of course I do! What do you think I came in here for?

[Archie throws the yogurt in the boy's face]

Archie Long: [smiling] You got it, kid. That'll be a $1.60, please.

Leon B. Little: [after being in the sewer for days] Goddamn Tunnel of Love! Well, don't you worry, Vinnie. A deal is a deal. Leon B. Little never quits. There's twenty-six stiffs out there who'll swear to that! Oh, daylight. All right, you chicken livers. If you're out there, you can kiss your future goodbye!

[comes upon a street gang listening to loud music]

Leon B. Little: Hey, Michael Jackson! Did you see two elderly gentlemen pass this way recently?

Gang leader: [scared] Oh, shit! Another one!

[scampers off with his goonies]

Leon B. Little: What is it, my smell or something? Hey, fish-ass! You forgot your jukebox!

Harry Doyle: Well, what do you want to do now, Archie? Steal another empty armored truck? Maybe start a collection?

Archie Long: No, we've got to do something big. Something they woun't laugh at.

Harry Doyle: Like what?

Archie Long: We could take down the flier!

Harry Doyle: The Gold Coast Flier? That's the stupidest idea I've ever heard!

Archie Long: That's what you said about the armored truck.

Harry Doyle: No, I said the armored truck was dumb. This is stupid.

Harry Doyle: There ain't nothing to steal on the Gold Coast Flier.

Archie Long: So? We'll steal the whole Goddamn train and ride it to Mexico.

Harry Doyle: What for?

Archie Long: To prove we can do it! It's the only thing that we'll have done to have worked out.

Harry Doyle: You can't do this!

Archie Long: Harry, I'm sick and tired of you telling me what I can do and what I can't do.

Harry Doyle: Archie, the Gold Coast Flier is no armored truck. It's a 70-ton train speeding at 100 miles per hour.

Archie Long: That didn't stop us the last time.

Harry Doyle: The last time we were 30 years younger and we got caught. We were put away for 30 years!

Archie Long: Now we're 30 years smarter. We woun't make the same mistakes.

Harry Doyle: That's right. Because we ain't gonna do it.

[last lines]

[Harry and Archie have crashed a train into Mexico. The federales show up]

Federale Captain: Buenos dias señores. Put up your hands. I'm afraid you're under arrest.

[the federales aim their guns at Harry and Archie]

Harry Doyle: Eh, now wait a minute, wait a minute. This ain't fair!

Federale Captain: No?

Archie Long: Señor, there's twelve of you and... just two of us.

Federale Captain: Si?

Harry Doyle: A-and you got guns, and we got nothin'.

Federale Captain: But this is how we put you under arrest señor!

Archie Long: Where we come from...

[points back to the US]

Archie Long: ...they've got rules about making arrests.

Federale Captain: Rules?

[Harry and Archie nods]

Archie Long: Si.

Federale Captain: What kind of rules?

[Harry and Archie glance amused at each other with a "here we go again" look]

Harry Doyle: What the hell are you doing here? I thought you was workin'.

Archie Long: I quit.

Harry Doyle: You quit?

Archie Long: Couldn't take it anymore. People treating me like dirt ever since I got out of jail. Sweeping out toilets, scraping crud off dishes, my girlfriend tryin' to kill me with sex - and I'm dressing like Bozo the Clown, just to fit in! I don't want to fit in anymore.

Harry Doyle: That makes two of us.

Man in gay bar: Shall we?

Archie Long: Shall we what?
