Preston Waters: What if you don't?
Henry: Then I guess you find out who your real friends are.

Henry: I'm waiting for a client.
Preston Waters: But I'm your client.
Henry: Right, yeah, and I'm Madonna. Sorry, Kid, the boss doesn't like me taking baseball cards as payment so if you wanna ride in this here limo you need some buckeroos, buckerinis, some moolah, some deniro, some frog skins, much similar to the money... In fact identical to the money you've given me now. I was just kidding about being Madonna. The name's Henry.
