State of Grace (1990) Poster

Quotes

Terry: So I was in Boston, I just ended up there. Seemed far enough away. They come to me then, it just happened, you know how that is, things happen and other things happen and its your life. They were looking to get somebody to go undercover here, they wanted to get somebody who knew the kitchen who was known. And I coulda said no but I thought I could do it. It was like this opportunity in which I could look the entire thing in the eye. And you'd be gone, or married forgotten about me I thought. And Jack, I would leave him out of it. But it was only an idea. Nothing to do with the truth. It was just a fuckin' idea like... You believe in the angels or the saints or there's such a thing as a state of grace. And you believe it, but it's got nothing to do with reality. It just an idea. I mean you got your ideas and you got reality, and they're all... they're all fucked up.

Terry Noonan: What did Frankie say?

Jackie Flannery: Stevie never hurt nobody. I hurt people. Frankie hurts people. Stevie borrowed money, that's all. Who'd kill him over fuckin' money?

Kathleen Flannery: You're acting surprised, Jackie? Are you serious? You want us to think this surprises you? Every time you turn around down here, somebody else is dead.

Jackie Flannery: What you talkin' about?

Kathleen Flannery: How many wakes we go to as kids because somebody forgot to pay back money?

Jackie Flannery: Every time we turn around, somebody's dead? Bullshit!

[Jackie begins to spin around]

Jackie Flannery: See! See! Stevie never hurt nobody!

Frankie: What did you find out, Pat?

Pat Nicholson, Frankie's Lieutenant: Nobody knows him. They must have brought him down from Boston. Brought him down from Boston to rat us out.

Jackie Flannery: What's the matter,your stomach upset?

Terry Noonan: Starting to get up in the morning Jack, it's like I'm pulling my socks over my shoes.

Terry Noonan: Like I'm in this fucking fog.

Jackie Flannery: Terry, you're missing the point here. I can't remember shit, that's the way I like it. Only hint of a problem is I need a little Maalox, but I can buy Maalox.

Terry Noonan: You always were tougher than me Jack.

Jackie Flannery: I always thought I was just crazier.

Jackie Flannery: Yuppies got to be thicker than the rats and the roaches. Assholes can't live without their dogs. Got dog shit all over the sidewalk. And it didn't use to be that way, it used to be, you dropped a cone, you could lift it up and finish it. People are roaming the streets homeless because of these assholes!

Terry: So we're like Robin Hood in this instance.

Jackie Flannery: Yeah. And I'm Friar Fuck.
