It's kind of like... foreplay, 'cause the more they talk about it, the wetter they get. The only difference is, I can fuck someone I've just met. But to steal? I need to know someone like I know myself.

  • Corky: If there's one thing I can't stand about sleeping with women, it's all the fucking mind-reading.

    Caesar: God. I should have seen this coming the minute I met you. Everybody knows your kind can't be trusted. Fucking queers make me sick. But you made a fatal mistake. You tried fucking the wrong guy. And I swear to you that I'm going to kill you for it. Where's my money?

    Violet: Don't tell him.

    Caesar: Shut up, Violet!

    Violet: He can't kill you.

    Caesar: [He aims the gun at Violet] Violet!

    Violet: Not until he has the money.

    [He fires the gun at the wall behind Violet to scare and silence her]

    Corky: I could be lying.

  • Corky: Either pull the trigger or get that fucking thing out of my face.

  • Corky: To steal, I need to know someone like I know myself.

    Violet: You think you know me like that?

  • Corky: [on the phone with Hector] He told you that... and you gave it to him? Oh no, no, no, I ain't mad. You just one stupid motherfucker and you ain't never gonna see a goddamn cent of my business, but I ain't mad. Yo, get fucked Hector!

    Corky: [Drops Fresh on the floor] I'm gonna ice you right now if you don't!

  • Corky: You know what this is? *Look at it!* What is it?

    Fresh: Look like base.

    Corky: That's right, little man. Five thousand dollars worth of pure base cocaine. You didn't even look to see what you was carrying, did you? You're just a little kid in way over his head, I know that. But Esteban gotta be sent a message about horning in on my business.

  • Corky: I'd like to say that goin' to bed with you is maybe the best three things that ever happened to me. And I'd love some coffee. And I adore you. And I take it with cream and sugar. And your breasts belong in the Louvre, which is a museum in Paris that I plan on visiting with you once you get wise and decide to leave the old ear-blower.

  • Corky: What would you say if I... called the police?

    Fats: You ain't bein' logical.

    Corky: Peg, I...

    Peggy Ann Snow: Was I FUNNY, you bastard son-of-a-bitch?

  • Ben Greene: Hey kid. I'm gonna ask you to do something. It's a little something anybody oughta be able to do. Now if you can do it fine, we'll forget this whole thing, but if you can't we'll think about getting you to see somebody fast. Is it a deal?

    Corky: Name it!

    Ben Greene: Make Fats shut up for five minutes.

    Corky: [awkward pause] Five minutes? I can make him shut up for five years.

    Ben Greene: Wonderful.

    [looks at watch]

    Corky: [puts Fats aside] I feel like the village idiot, if you want to know the truth. Can we talk, or is it going to be strictly semaphore?


    Corky: How long so far?

    Ben Greene: [readying a cigar] It's uh... Thirty seconds.

    Corky: Gosh, that's uh... four-and-a-half minutes to go! Think I'll make it? Don't happen to have another of those, do you?

    Corky: You think we'll laugh about this someday?

    Corky: Might.

    Corky: [starting to talk nervously faster] Make a terrific scene if you ever decide to write your autobiography. Hey, I know what you should call it! "Failing Upwards", or "How to Succeed in Show Business by Outliving Everybody".


    Corky: Two minutes yet?

    Ben Greene: A minute forty-five.

    Corky: This is very cruel of you, you know that?

    Ben Greene: Well that would be sad.

    Corky: Time?

    Ben Greene: It's two-and-a-half minutes to go.

    Corky: [pause] I can't make it.

    Ben Greene: Well, I didn't think you could.

    Fats: [snatched by Corky, and talking rapidly] Hello everybody! This is Mister Norman Maine! My mother thanks you, my father thanks you, my sister thanks you, and I thank you! You have nothing to fear but fear itself, nothing to give but blood, sweat, and tears, nothing to lose but your change! Here he is boys, here he is world - heeeeeere's FATS!

  • Corky: [answering the phone] Hello?

    Ben Greene: I've been having meetings for hours. I couldn't budge 'em, Cork.

    Corky: I thought you said they wanted me?

    Ben Greene: Well they do, Cork, but...

    Corky: [raising voice] Didn't you explain about the principle?

    Ben Greene: Now kid, this is network policy, it's legal policy. Now I'm sitting here with three of our genius lawyers. Their IQ's alone must total up to 100. Now we have called NBC a dozen times, and they are not, I repeat not, about to spend a half a million bucks only to find out on taping day that there's some kind of health problem.

    Corky: [yelling] There's no problem!

    Ben Greene: Corky...

    Corky: Make 'em understand!

    [hangs up]
