Bernie Rose Quotes:

  • Shannon: Kid, I want you to meet Mr. Bernie Rose!

    Bernie Rose: Nice to meet you.

    [Bernie sticks out his hand to shake; Driver does not take it]

    Driver: My hands are a little dirty.

    Bernie Rose: So are mine.

  • Nino: Fuck you eating chink food in my fucking restaurant?

    Bernie Rose: What's a Jew doing running a pizzeria?

  • Nino: You paid three-hundred fucking grand for this piece of shit?

    Bernie Rose: I paid for it - out of my own pocket. This is just the shell; it's the inside that counts, not the outside, right Shannon?

    Shannon: You are correct, sir.

    Nino: Fuck that shit; I pay three-hundred for something, I want everybody to fucking see it!

    Bernie Rose: Of course you do.

    Nino: [Nino sees an collectible car] Now this... that is one motherfucking, fine-ass, pussy-mobile, motha-fucka'! Damn!

    Bernie Rose: Shannon, sell him the car.

    Shannon: He wouldn't be able to find pussy in a whore house...

    Shannon: [Shannon begins hobbling over to Nino] You know what? This car will even make you good-looking.

    Nino: I'm already good-looking, pal.

  • Bernie Rose: Here's what I'm prepared to offer. You give me the money, the girl is safe. Forever. Nobody knows about her. She's off the map. I can't offer you the same. So, this is what I would suggest. We conclude our deal. We'll shake hands. You start the rest of your life. Any dreams you have, or plans, or hopes for your future... I think you're going to have to put that on hold. For the rest of your life you're going to be looking over your shoulder. I'm just telling you this because I want you to know the truth. But the girl is safe.

  • Bernie Rose: What do you got that the big professional race teams don't?

    Shannon: I got the driver.

    Bernie Rose: You just told me they had half a dozen drivers.

    Shannon: Not like this. This kid is special. I've been working with him for a while. I've never seen anything like it. If I had the money, I'd back him myself.

    Bernie Rose: Yeah, but you don't have the money.

    Shannon: Mr. Rose, you put this kid behind the wheel, there's nothing he can't do.

  • Bernie Rose: My partner is a belligerent asshole with his back up against a wall, and now, so am I.

  • [last lines]

    Bernie Rose: Where's the money now?

    Driver: It's in the car.

    Bernie Rose: Come on.

  • Bernie Rose: Did Shannon ever tell you how we met?

    Driver: No.

    Bernie Rose: I used to produce movies. In the 80s. Kind of like action films. Sexy stuff. One critic called them European. I thought they were shit. Anyway, he arranged all the cars for me. Did all the stunts. I liked him. I liked having him around. Even though he overcharged the shit out of me. His next business venture, he got involved with some of Nino's friends. They didn't go for the overcharging bit. They broke his pelvis. He's never had a lot of luck. The reason I'm telling you this is that he has a lot invested in you. And so do I. So anything you need, you call me. We're a team now.


    Bernie Rose: I'm excited!

    [yelling across the garage]

    Bernie Rose: Nino, let's get the fuck out of here!

  • Bernie Rose: [to Cook] Shut the fuck up, you fucking monkey!

  • Bernie Rose: [to Nino] Now it's your turn to clean up after me.

  • Bernie Rose: [snaps] You didn't tell me you were ripping off the family

    Nino: [snaps back] FAMILY... What family? The same family that calls me kike to my face


    Nino: TO MY FACE! I'm fifty nine years old and they still keep pinching my cheeks like I'm a child!
