Kurtz: How are you, Maxie?
Maxie: How am I? I got a lousy prison suit on my back and five lousy prison bucks in my pocket. I'm fine!
Rico: Kurtz is workin' late too.
Ness: Kurtz is dead.
Maxie: (to Ness) I ain't no salami hangin' up on a hook for anybody who's got the price.
Maxie: So what do I do?
Seegar: You ever hear of workin'?
Maxie: Looks like you spent a lot today.
Roxie: I spend a lot every day.
Ness: (to Kulak) You better keep your bags packed. I pull the right string..you're on the next train back to St. Louis.
Ness: I thought you didn't like the cold.
Maxie: It's a whole lot colder being dead.
Roxie: (after being dragged into the squad room by Rico and Hobson) Don't these apes know how to treat a lady?
Ness: They know.
Seegar: All these months...all the time I put into this thing...now I got nothin'!
Ness: You got one thing...you're still alive.
Ness: (after shooting Seegar) It couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
