Parker: There is a natural order. The way things are meant to be. An order that says that the good guys always win. That you die when it's your time, or you have it coming. That the ending is always happy, if only for someone else. Now at some point it became clear to us that our path had been chosen and we had nothing to offer the world. Our options narrowing down to petty crime or minimum wage. So, we stepped off the path, and went looking for the fortune that we knew was looking for us. Once off the path you do what you can to eat and to keep moving. You don't blow your ghost of a chance with nickel and dime. No possessions, no comforts. Need is the ultimate monkey. A pint of your blood can fetch you fifty bucks. A shot of cum, three grand. You keep your life simple and you can literally self sustain.

[Narration after the shoot-out at the brothel]

Parker: We don't want your forgiveness. We won't make excuses. We're not gonna blame you, even if you are an accessory... But we will not except your natural order. We didn't come for absolution, we didn't ask to be redeemed. But isn't how it is, every goddamn time... Your prayers are always answered, in the order they're received...

Longbaugh: I've... never killed a man.

Interviewer: I beg your pardon?

Longbaugh: I said I never killed a man.

Interviewer: I didn't ask if you had.

Longbaugh: You asked why I thought I was qualified, I think of that as qualification.

Interviewer: And I'm just wondering why that in particular strikes you as an important qualification for semen donation.

Longbaugh: I would say thats a big fucking qualification - excuse me, a very important qualification.

Interviewer: No one's ever said that before.

Longbaugh: Have you ever asked?

Interviewer: No.

Longbaugh: You should.

Longbaugh: I've been watching them pile up. Nightstick, flashlight, bulletproof vest.

Joe Sarno: Fuckin' utility belts, right?

Longbaugh: Fuckin' sign on his head reading "Why Bother?"

Joe Sarno: Hey, they love to say shit like "ascertain".

Longbaugh: "Surveillance."

Joe Sarno: "Affirmative."

Longbaugh: "I need backup."

Joe Sarno: "Adjudicate."

Longbaugh: "Adjudicate"?

Joe Sarno: Yeah, well...

Longbaugh: But, you know, then you got the other side. You got these trigger-happy cocksuckers all about the shooting and posturing and 'you don't know who I am' kind of thing..."I been to prison."

Joe Sarno: 'cuase you got caught, dumb fuck.

Longbaugh: These days, they want to be criminals more than they want to commit crime.

Joe Sarno: Well that's... that's not just crime. That's the way of the world.

Jeffers: What?

Obecks: Well, I'm just talking here... but by their design, all we really need to come back with is the baby... think about it... no money, no perps, no nothing. We could kill these two fucks, take the money, bring Chidduck his baby, and say it all went well.

Jeffers: Well... mostly well.

Obecks: What? The girl?

Jeffers: Yeah.

Obecks: Well when she doesn't show up in a couple of months, it'll be assumed she ate a bullet and they made off for fucking Bolivia... damn it... it doesn't work. The doc...

Jeffers: The doctor gets shot in the fray...

Obecks: Right...

Jeffers: We tried to help him, but it was either him or the baby. He was alive when we took off, and must have died crawling for help in the desert.

Obecks: Creative articulation my good man.

Jeffers: Just talking of course...

Obecks: Sure.

Parker: You take Los Angeles. Kay. If I say Los Angeles has become, over the years, a mecca for homosexual migration. I am in the right. But look at what I am saying. I am making it sound like faggots are nomadic if not predatory miscreants who have some implied need to move around. I am also likening of the Muslims, or Muslims to them. Whereas saying LA is filled with faggots is just being honest.

Parker: Don't you think it's funny that if I grab a woman's ass and she punches me, she's fighting for her rights, but if a faggot grabs my ass and I punch his lights out, I'm a homophobe?

Robin: When you think about deaf people, people who are born deaf... who've never heard a spoken word. What do you think they call the sun or their mother... or their own reflection in the mirror? That's what I call it.
