    Aileen: SAYS WHO? I'm good with the Lord. I'm fine with him. And I know how you were raised, alright? And I know how people fuckin' think out there, and fuck, it's gotta be that way. They've gotta tell you that 'Thou shall not kill' shit and all of that. But that's not the way the world works, Selby. Cuz I'm out there every fuckin' day living it. Who the fuck knows what God wants? People kill each other every day and for what? Hm? For politics, for religion, and THEY'RE HEROES! No, no... there's a lot of shit I can't do anymore, but killing's not one of them. And letting those fucking bastards go out and rape someone else isn't either!

  • Selby: I just wanna live, Lee. I just want a normal happy life. I don't know why you did this.

    Selby: Yeah, I know.

    Aileen: I wish there was a way that people can forgive you for something about this, you know. But they can't. They can't, man. So I gonna die, Sel... Hey Sel, I'll never forget you. Good bye, baby. Bye baby.

    Selby: That you wouldn't even have to fuck me to get it because I'm so hard-up!

    Aileen: NO! No, Selby. That's not the reason...

    Selby: You said we were gonna party, party, party, Lee! Well, there hasn't been a fucking party!

    Aileen: [nods] I know! But...

    Selby: What have you done about it? NOTHING... when I tell you that I'm starving!
