Quotes

[repeated lines]

Ottway: Once more into the fray. Into the last good fight I'll ever know. Live and die on this day. Live and die on this day.

Ottway: [writing his suicide letter] There's not a second that goes by when I'm not thinking of you in some way. I want to see your face. Feel your hands in mine. Feel you against me. But I know that will never be. You left me, and I can't get you back... I move like I imagine the damned do, cursed. I feel like it's only a matter of time... I don't know why I'm writing this, I don't know what can come of it. I know I can't get you back. I don't know why this has happened to us. I feel like it's me. Bad luck. Poison. I've stopped doing this world any real good.

Diaz: I got a book. It's called "We're all fucked". It's a bestseller.

Ottway: My dad was not without love... but a cliched Irish motherfucker when he wanted to be. Drinker, brawler, all that stuff. Never shed a tear. Saw weakness everywhere. But he had this thing for poems... poetry. Reading them, quoting them. Probably thought it rounded him off, you know. His way of apologizing, I guess. And there was one that hung over the desk in his den. It was only when I was a lot older, I realized he had written it. It was untitled, four lines. I read it at his funeral. "Once more into the fray. Into the last good fight I'll ever know. Live and die on this day. Live and die on this day."

Ottway: Do something. Do something. You phony prick fraudulent motherfucker. Do something! Come on! Prove it! Fuck faith! Earn it! Show me something real! I need it now. Not later. Now! Show me and I'll believe in you until the day I die. I swear. I'm calling on you. I'm calling on you!

[receives no response]

Ottway: Fuck it. I'll do it myself.

Ottway: Put that back. Put it Back! We're not looting dead bodies for swag.

Diaz: You got lucky today Ottway. You should be lying there with them. Don't push it.

Ottway: I'm not going to say it again.

Diaz: Motherfucker take a big step back!

Ottway: I'm going to start beating the shit out of you in the next five seconds. And you're going to swallow a lot of blood for a fucking billfold.

Ottway: [after bitten by a wolf] Maybe I'll turn into a wolfman now.

Flannery: Wait! That shit's not real, right? I mean you can't.

Diaz: Asswipe, what do you think? Really.

Flannery: I don't know, man, maybe like rabies or whatever. I didn't think the motherfucker was gonna grow claws and teeth and shit.

[first lines]

Ottway: A job at the end of the world. A salaried killer for a big petroleum company. I don't know why I did half the things I've done, but I know this is where I belong, surrounded by my own. Ex-cons, fugitives, drifters, assholes. Men unfit for mankind.

Hendrick: Is that it? You're just gonna sit there? Is that what you want?

Diaz: Yeah.

Hendrick: After what we survived?

Diaz: That's exactly why. What I got waiting for me back there? I'm gonna sit on a drill all day. Get drunk all night. That's my life. Turn around and look at that.

[mountains]

Diaz: I feel like that's all for me. How do I beat that. When will it ever be better? I can't explain it.
