Pappas Quotes in Point Break (1991)


Pappas Quotes:

  • Pappas: [of Johnny, after the last robbery] Don't ride him in with the black and whites like some punk, let *me* ride him in.

    Ben Harp: Yeah sure, Angelo, why not? That is why I put you 2 screw-ups to begin with. You deserve each other, don't you? You're just as bad as he is, though you're a little fatter, a little slower and a little more pathetic. For Christ sake, it's like the blind leading the blind with you.

    Pappas: Harp, I want to tell you something. I was in this bureau when you were still popping zits on your funny face and jerking off with the lingerie section of the sears catalog.

    Ben Harp: Is that right, Pappas?

    Pappas: Yes, that's right "Harp", and out of all these years, I have learned something that you still haven't got.

    Ben Harp: Yeah? Why don't you astonish me, shitface?

    Pappas: [punches Harp in the face] Respect for my elders.

  • Johnny Utah: [analyzing a hair sample] The beaches are always being closed because of waste spills, right? And surfers are territorial, they stick to certain breaks. If we can get some hair samples, and get a match to a certain beach, we'd know which break the Ex-Presidents surf. You buyin' this?

    Pappas: No. But let's do it anyway; it'll drive Harp crazy.

  • Pappas: Listen you snot-nose little shit, I was takin' shrapnel in Khe Sanh when you were crappin' in your hands and rubbin' it on your face.

  • Diving Instructor: Heads up, Pappas. I want to see you retrieve at least two bricks.

    Pappas: [puts on blindfold] I've been on the job for over 20 years, and I fail to see what fishing bricks from the bottom of a pool has got to do with bank robbery. And on top of that, they got me babysitting some quarterback punk, named Johnny Unitas or something.

    Johnny Utah: The shit they pull, huh?

    Pappas: Yeah!

    Diving Instructor: Pappas... meet your new partner.

    Pappas: What?

And yes! - YOU BOTHER ME! And Pappas! Oh, for the love of Christ. How the hell did I even let you talk me into this whole bone-headed idea to begin with.

    Pappas: Harp! We are working under-cover. It takes time. We've produced a few...

    Ben Harp: NO! No no no no no no NO! Let me tell you what you've produced... Over the last two weeks, you two have produced exactly squat! SQUAT! During which time the ex-presidents have robbed two more banks. Now for Christ's sake, does either one of you have anything even remotely interesting to tell me?

    [brief pause]

    Johnny Utah: I caught my first tube today... Sir.

  • [Angelo Pappas is aiming the gun at a surfer]

    Pappas: Speak into the microphone, squid brain!

  • Pappas: Let me tell you something, Harp. I was in this bureau while you were still popping zits on your funny face and jacking off to the lingerie section of the Sears catalog. But there's something I've learned in all my years...

    DEA Agent Deets: [Slams bags of meth into Utah's chest] Fuckin' jerks!
