Mulligan Quotes in Deep Rising (1998)
Hanover: [Mulligan stands in front of the hatch door to the galley, and keeps them away from it] We're not staying here, Mulligan!
Mulligan: I say we are!
[Holds his assault rifle up to Hanover's face, Hanover holds his handgun up to Mulligan's face]
Mulligan: Last stand, eh? We'll kick ass and take names!
Hanover: You back off soldier, before I put you down!
Finnegan: [after a few momens of silence] I once saw a guy put a fish in a bottle. He corked it, sealed it tight, and threw it to a baby octopus inside a fish tank. The octopus... he felt his way all around that bottle. In less than two minutes, he got the cork off, slid inside, and ate the fish.
Pantucci: And your moral of this story is...?
Trillian St. James: We're the fish. Look... the ship already starting to sink. What if they don't get here in time? I don't wanna drown.
Finnegan: Now look, Mulligan, you can do whatever you want. But I am gonna get my ass to the surface, and pray to God my boat is still there, and those things aren't crawlin' all over it. Then I am gonna bail the hell outta here!
Mulligan: [the remaining six survivors are in the galley. Mulligan closes a hatch door] I say we stay right here!
Trillian St. James: Are you insane?
Pantucci: No man, he's right. There's plenty of food here. We can hold out til they rescue us.
Canton: They're right. This is the galley for the crew. It was built almost entirely air tight in case of fire. With these hatches closed there's no way those things could get in here.
Hanover: You wanna wind up in jail, Mulligan?
Mulligan: Better there than in the belly of one of those things!
Finnegan: [Finnegans head for the hatch] I don't know about you, but I'm gonna keep on goin'. It's our only chance.
Mulligan: [Points his gun at him and keeps him away from the door] Back off. They're wiping us out one at a time. I say we make a stand. Right here. Right now.
Pantucci: The whole damn ships infested Finnegan. We're not gonna make it back to the boat anyway.
Finnegan: I'm not staying down here and that's a fact. Now back off that hatch.
Mulligan: [Hold the gun up to Finnegan's face] I'll do it. I'll do it. I swear to god I'll kill you! I'm not murking about.
Pantucci: Don't get hasty, man.
Hanover: You wanna wind up in jail, Mulligan?
Mulligan: Better there then in the belly of one of those things!
Mulligan: [after only Joey surfaces] Where's Mason?
Pantucci: They caught up to him.
Mulligan: Shit not Mason... no way is this happening!
Mulligan: [as a half-digested screaming Billy is spewed up by a dying Ottoia] CHRIST IT'S BILLY!
Finnegan: [Hanover's goons are beating up Pantucci] We got a contract: 20 hours out and back. You beat my engine man to death, it's gonna take a hell of a lot longer - which is ok by me since overtime'll cost you double rate!
Hanover: He was nosing around in my cargo!
Finnegan: Ok, so he's nosy.
Hanover: Contract was "no questions asked."
Mason: Yo, fellas, I vote we kick this lil' piece of shit overboard!
Mamooli: Well, I vote we kill him!
Mulligan: I vote we kill him, then throw him overboard!
Finnegan: Well, we don't vote here, it's NOT a democracy.
[one of the goons hits Pantucci]
Finnegan: Ok, I'll say it one more time for the hearing impaired...
[hits one of them, points his harpoon gun at Mamooli, a standoff ensues]
Finnegan: [long pause] This could be messy...
Mulligan: Do you know what I do to guys who quote unquote "sleep" with my wife?
Nathanial Mayweather: Talk about your discomfort over a cup of hot cocoa?
Mulligan: Clooooooooose. I cut off their heads with a nail clipper.
Mulligan: What happened here?
Little Bonaparte: [referring to Spats and his thugs] There was something in that cake that didn't agree with them.
Mulligan: My compliments to the chef. Nobody leaves this room until I get the recipe.
Little Bonaparte: You wanna make a federal case of it?
Mulligan: [grabs the speaker of Little Bonaparte's hearing aid] Yeah!
Toothpick Charlie: Look, chief, I better blow 'cause if Columbo sees me, it's gonna be "Goodbye Charlie!"
Mulligan: Goodbye, Charlie.
Spats Colombo: [when his speakeasy is raided] What's the rap this time?
Mulligan: Embalming people with coffee - 86 proof.
Mulligan: You better bring a check in case the joint is raided.
Waiter: Who's gonna raid a funeral?
Mulligan: Some people got no respect for the dead.
Spats Colombo: Hello, copper. What brings you to Miami?
Mulligan: Heard you "opera lovers" were having a convention, so I thought I'd better be around in case anybody decided to sing.
Mulligan: You shave with your spats on?
Spats Colombo: I sleep with my spats on.
Mulligan: All right, Charlie; that the joint?
Toothpick Charlie: Yes, sir.
Mulligan: Who runs it?
Toothpick Charlie: I already told you.
Mulligan: Refresh my memory.
Toothpick Charlie: Spats Columbo.
Mulligan: That's very refreshing; what's the password?
Toothpick Charlie: "I've come to Grandma's funeral." Here's your admission card.
[he gives Mulligan a mourning armband]
Mulligan: Thanks, Charlie.
Toothpick Charlie: Now if you want a ringside table, just tell 'em that you're one of the pallbearers.
Mulligan: OK, Charlie.
Mulligan: Alright Spats, services are over, lets go
Spats Colombo: Go where?
Mulligan: A little country club we run for retired bootleggers. I'm puttin your name up for membership
Spats Colombo: I dont join nothin'
Mulligan: Ahh... you'll like it there, I'll get the prison tailor to fit you with a pair of special spats - striped!
Spats Colombo: Big joke!
Mulligan: Say they make six G's... you know, and they take my fifteen percent. The band, the food, the gas, hotel... uh... four guys, 3000 miles, five nights. At this point, you do it for love.
Mulligan: First time I saw a mousetrap catch a piece of cheese!
