I'd like that. But that shit ain't the truth. The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to be the shepherd.

We are in the JUNGLE! You know, when people say "It's a jungle out there," well, I'm pretty sure they don't mean it as a good thing!

When a monkey nibbles on a penis, it's funny in any language.

I am sick of your foul language, your crude behavior and your sluttish manner. There are certain things a decent woman keeps private, and only a filthy slut would have done this and those who stood by and encouraged her are just as bad. I don't care who's responsible - you're all to blame. Now, I am going to leave this room for five minutes by which time that disgusting object had better be removed and the windows opened to clear away the stench. If you must play these filthy games, do them in your homes, and not in my classroom!

Now, John, you've to wear clothes in proportion to your physique. There are definite dos and don'ts, Good Buddy, of wearing a bold striped shirt. A bold stripe shirt calls for solid colored or discreetly patterned suits and ties.

You just made the list, buddy. And I don't like nobody touching my stuff. So just keep your meat-hooks off. If I catch any of you guys in my stuff, I'll kill you. Also, I don't like nobody touching me. Now, any of you homos touch me, and I'll kill you.

Paulie may have moved slow, but it was only because Paulie didn't have to move for anybody.

Howard Hawks' 1948 Red River, at about 29 minutes in, John Ireland as Cherry (!)(Vallanche) saying to Montgomery Clift (in his first movie) as Matthew Garth,

"That's a good-lookin' gun you were about to use back there. Can I see It?

[Monty scratches his nose and gives a knowing smirk, saying nothing, hands his revolver to John who says]

"Maybe you'd like to see mine." and hands it to Monty.

John says, "Nice, awful nice. You know, there are only two things more beautiful than a good gun-a Swiss watch or a woman from anywhere. Have you ever had a good Swiss watch?"

I'm pleased and happy to repeat the news that we have, in fact, caught and killed a large predator that supposedly injured some bathers. But, as you see, it's a beautiful day, the beaches are open and people are having a wonderful time. Amity, as you know, means "friendship".

Just remember that you're not just reading the news, you're narrating it. Everybody has to sell a little. You're selling them this idea of you, you know, you're sort of saying, trust me I'm, um, credible. So when you feel yourself just reading, stop! Start selling a little.

The only thing you got in this world is what you can sell. And the funny thing is that you're a salesman, and you don't know that.

We have known each other many years, but this is the first time you've come to me for counsel or for help. I can't remember the last time you invited me to your house for a cup of coffee, even though my wife is godmother to your only child. But let's be frank here. You never wanted my friendship. And you feared to be in my debt.

You see, the real value of a conflict, the true value, is in the debt that it creates. You control the debt, you control everything.

Everybody needs money. That's why they call it money.
