  • Shannon: You two know each other?

    Driver: [smiling while walking by] Don't.

  • Bernie Rose: What do you got that the big professional race teams don't?

    Shannon: I got the driver.

    Bernie Rose: You just told me they had half a dozen drivers.

    Irene: Yeah.

    Shannon: So I hired him on the spot. Boom.

    [to Driver]

    Shannon: Hey kid, come over here for a second, will you?

    [back to Irene]

    Shannon: And I have been exploiting him ever since.

    [Shannon laughs]

    Shannon: Don't tell him.

  • Driver: You get out of here and you never fucking come back. You never come back.

    Shannon: What are you going to do?

  • Shannon: What happened to all the ashtrays in this town?

  • Shannon: You look like a zombie kid, you getting any sleep?

  • Shannon: He wouldn't be able to find pussy in a whore house.

    Shannon: [gasps] You scared me to death!

    Allison: [laughs] Sorry.

    Shannon: Only taking care of all these lonely love-starved devils.
