  • Quotes

    • Animal: (to hungover Lou) Lou, are you in there? Nod if you can hear me.
      Rossi: It's a miracle he made it to work today.
      Art: People like to be close to their friends when they're dying.

    • Billie: You know, it's always bothered me how we can predict how many people will die on a holiday weekend and no-one seems to mind.
      Lou: Yeah, it's an acceptable level of carnage.

    • Charlie: Do you know there are guys who do nothing but hit cars for their stereos?
      Lou: If you want to make it in the world of crime these days, you've got to specialize. I had a pair of pants taken out of my car once. They left a perfectly good pair of loafers.

    • Lou: The way I see it, you gotta be Dick Tracy or Clark Kent, but you can't be both.
