  • Quotes

    • Winston: So who's this Donnelly guy?
      Chance: Just a guy.
      Winston: Yeah, but he's a bad guy. See, 'cause that's a bad-guy bar, so he must be a bad guy.
      Chance: Are you coming? It's your last chance.
      Winston: Hell, no. I hate bad guys.

    • Winston: Any idea how one would scan a photo into this fancy, expensive computer that Ilsa bought us? Look at this thing. I wonder if there's a manual for the manual.

    • Winston: She's got a few of these social-networking accounts, a couple dating services. Ugh, not for me. I get my dates the old-fashioned way.
      Guerrero: Pay for it?
      Winston: Church.

    • Ames: I dig your car, by the way. Cadillacs are so rock and roll.
      Guerrero: I'll forget more about Cadillacs when I go to sleep tonight than you'll ever know in your entire life.

    • Guerrero: Go get my tackle box out of the car. It's in the exceptionally roomy trunk.
      Lawyer: Tackle box?
      Guerrero: Yeah.
      Lawyer: This is... this is crazy! I don't know anything! I am a lawyer at an investment bank, for gods sakes!
      Guerrero: A lawyer and an investment banker? Wow. I'm really gonna enjoy this. Have any allergies I should know about?

    • Ilsa: Why didn't you tell her the truth about her husband?
      Chance: She doesn't need to hear it.
      Ilsa: Well, maybe she does.
      Chance: That's not what I'm here for. I'm here to protect her. That's what she needed. That's what I do.
