    Marion Bishop: You know me, Marcus. I cannot tell a lie.


    Marion Bishop: Look at you. When I first approached you ten years ago, you couldn't look me in the eye. One of those nervous God fearing types. Now, you put a bullet in me, no hesitation. You're quite the changed man this New Year's, Marcus.

    [Duvall stands up and aims his weapon at Bishop with a long pause ensuing]

    Marion Bishop: What are you waiting for? Shoot him.

    Jake Roenick: Shut up! Put the gun down, Duvall.

    Marcus Duvall: What are you going to do? Are you going to shoot me? Arrest me? You going to kill a cop?

    Jake Roenick: There's only one cop here. Now, put the God damn gun down. You're caught! How many more people are you going to kill tonight?

    Marcus Duvall: As many as it takes.

    Jake Roenick: You make me fucking sick!
