Quotes

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson: God... damn.

Hardware Store Employee: I see you got the Dewalt cordless. Your nailgun, Dewalt 410.

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson: Yeah. The trouble is, you leave it in a truck for a while, need to step up and use the bitch, the battery don't hold up, you know?

Hardware Store Employee: Yeah, cordless'll do that. You might want to consider the powder-actuated tool. The Hilti DX 460 MX or the Simpson PTP. These two are my cadillacs. Everything else on this board is second best, sorry to say. Are you contracting, or just doing some work around the house?

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson: No, we work all over.

Hardware Store Employee: Full time?

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson: No, we had about 5 jobs last month.

Hardware Store Employee: At that rate, the cost of the powder-actuated guns justifies itself.

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson: You say power?

Hardware Store Employee: Powder.

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson: Like gunpowder?

Hardware Store Employee: Yeah. The DX 460 is fully automatic, with a .27 caliber charge. Wood, concrete, steel to steel... She'll throw a fastener into anything, and for my money, she handles recoil better than the Simpson or the P3500. Now, you understand what I mean by recoil ?

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson: Yeah, the kickback. I'm with you.

Hardware Store Employee: That's right.

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson: .27 caliber, huh?

Hardware Store Employee: Yeah, not large ballistically, but for driving nails, it's enough. Any more than that, you'd add to the recoil.

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson: Man, shit. I seen a tiny-ass .22 round-nose drop a nigger plenty of days, man. Motherfuckers get up in you like a pinball, rip your ass up. Big joints, though... Big joints, man, just break your bones, you say, "fuck it." I'm gonna go with this right here, man. How much do I owe you?

Hardware Store Employee: Six-sixty-nine plus tax.

[Snoop counts out a stack of cash]

Hardware Store Employee: No, no, you just pay at the register.

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson: Nah, man, you go ahead and handle that for me, man. And keep the rest for your time.

Hardware Store Employee: This is $800.

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson: So what, man? You earned that buck like a motherfucker, man. Keep that shit.
