  • Quotes (7)

    • Matt: (to Agent Griffin regarding Felix Aguila) Go ahead, blow his brains all over the bar. Don't get any on me. And don't expect me to cover for you when we get back.

    • Matt: Hey, Ramon, let's talk this over. Ramon Leal: No, I do the talking. Felix Aguila: No! You do the shooting!

    • Emily: Back there when I said, you know, if we don't get out of here. Matt: Yeah. Emily: What did you think I was going to say? Matt: Uh, I don't know. What were you gonna say? Emily: Thanks. Matt: You're welcome.

    • Emily: (on the phone to Felix Aguila) You don't think I doubt myself every day, every time I do this. Okay, I have people standing next to me that I don't... I don't wanna let them down. I don't wanna let them down, I wanna do right by them, and every day I second guess that. I always think I don't have what it takes.

    • Roger Lestak: Look. I don't know what kinda ship you run around here. Cheryl: (menacingly) You got something to say about my ship?

    • Felix Aguila: Can you hear me now? This is a reference to the cellular phone company Verizon Wireless and its recent ad campaign: "Can you hear me now? Good."
