Quotes

Scott Favor: I only have sex with a guy for money.

Mike Waters: Yeah, I know.

Mike Waters: Yeah.

Mike Waters: Well, I don't know. I mean... I mean, for me, I could love someone even if I, you know, wasn't paid for it... I love you, and... you don't pay me.

Scott Favor: Mike...

Mike Waters: I really wanna kiss you, man... Well goodnight, man... I love you though... You know that... I do love you.

Bob Pigeon: Scott. When you inherit your fortune, on your twenty-first birthday, let's see... how far away is this?

Scott Favor: One week away, Bob, just one more week.

Bob Pigeon: Let's not call ourselves robbers, but Diana's foresters. Gentlemen of the shade. Minions of the Moon. Men of good government.

Scott Favor: [under his breath] When I turn twenty-one, I don't want any more of this life. My mother and father will be surprised at the incredible change. It will impress them more when such a fuck-up like me turns good than if I had been a good son all along. All the past years I will think of as one big vacation. At least it wasn't as boring as schoolwork. All my bad behavior I'm going to throw away to pay my debt. I will change when everybody expects it the least.

Scott Favor: Why, you wouldn't even look at a clock unless hours were lines of coke, dials looked like the signs of gay bars, or time itself was a fair hustler in black leather.

Mike Waters: [First lines, mumbled to self, counting seconds, looking at pocket watch] 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10...

[Coughs]

Mike Waters: I always know where I am by the way that the road looks. Like I just know that I've been here before. I just know that I've been stuck here, like this one f**king time before, you know that? Yeah. There's not another road anywhere that looks like this road - I mean, exactly like this road. It's one kind of place. One of a kind... like someone's face...

Walt: Yeah, Mike?

Mike Waters: You think, um, that you could spot me ten more dollars?

Mike Waters: My dad and I don't get along too well, you know that Walt.

Walt: We're not getting along that well either now, are we?

Mike Waters: No we don't get along too well... or else he wouldn't have gone out and drowned himself at Boxcar Canyon.

Walt: Again? He hit the water this time?

Mike Waters: He survived the first time, this time...

Walt: Oh, God.

Mike Waters: You're the only one I can ask, you know that Walt! Please! I'll owe you a date, how about that? I'll owe you a date. Pleeeeeeeease.

Scott Favor: Getting away from everything feels good.

Mike Waters: Yeah, it does.

Scott Favor: When I left home, the maid asked me where I was off to. I said "Wherever. Whatever. Have a nice day."

Mike Waters: You had a maid. If I had a normal family, and a good up-bringing, then I would have been a well-adjusted person.

Scott Favor: It depends on what you call normal.

Mike Waters: Yeah, it does. Well, you know. Normal. Like a mom and a dad and a dog, and shit like that. Normal. Normal.

Scott Favor: So, you didn't have a normal dog?

Mike Waters: No, I didn't have a dog.

Scott Favor: Didn't... or... didn't have a normal dad?

Mike Waters: Didn't have a dog or a normal dad anyway, yeah. That's alright. I don't feel sorry for myself. I mean, I feel like I'm... I feel like I'm... you know... well-adjusted.

Mike Waters: [in a coffee shop] How'd we get home?

Scott Favor: That German guy. Hans. He brought you downtown, you were passed out. He said he was heading to Portland, so I asked him for a ride.

Mike Waters: For some reason I'm forgetting a German guy named Hans.

Scott Favor: Well. You were sleeping.

Mike Waters: How much do you make off me while I'm sleeping?

Scott Favor: Just a ride, Mike. I don't make anything. What, you think that I sell your body while you are asleep?

Mike Waters: Yeah.

Scott Favor: [Scott stirs his coffee] No, Mike. I'm on your side.

Jane Lightwork: I'm the one who heard him cry out last night. He said "God, God, God..." three or four times. And when I got there I put my hand into the bed and felt his feet. And they were cold as stone. And I checked the rest of his body. And it too was as cold as stone...

Bob Pigeon: I'm afraid if I shared your wine, I might catch this awful disease you appear to have. My jacket would grow little zippers all over it and my toes would have jingle bells on them like those there.
