T-Bird: This is the really real world, and there ain't no comin' back.

******

T-Bird: Abashed the Devil stood and felt how awful goodness is.

******

T-Bird: I got trouble. One of my men got himself perished. Top Dollar: Yeah and who might that be? T-Bird: Tin Tin, somebody stuck his blades in all his major organs in alphabetical order. Top Dollar: Gentlemen, by all means, I think we ought to have an introspective moment of silence for poor ol' Tin Tin. [sniffs]

******

Top Dollar: Greed is for amateurs. Disorder, chaos, anarchy: now that's fun!

******

Eric Draven: It can't rain all the time.

******

Eric Draven: Little things use to mean so much to Shelley -- I thought they were kind of trivial. Believe me, nothing is trivial.

******

Top Dollar: Ya know, my daddy used to say every man's got a devil. And you can't rest 'til you find him... but if it's any consolation to you, you have put a smile on my face.

******

Sarah: People used to think that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes... only sometimes the crow brings that soul back to set the wrong things right.

******

Eric Draven: I have something to give you. I don't want it anymore. Thirty hours of pain all at once, all for you.

******

Eric Draven: Go ahead and shoot, Fun Boy. You've got me dead bang.

******

Top Dollar: Our friend T-bird won't be joining us this evening on account of a slight case of death.

******

Eric Draven: Mother is the name for God on the lips and hearts of all childern. Do you understand? Your daughter is waiting for you out on the streets.

******

Sarah: If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn. People die. But real love lives forever.

******

Tin Tin: Murderer? Murderer!? Let me tell you a little something about murder. It's fun, it's easy, and you gonna learn all about it. [pulls out two blades] I'd like you to meet two buddies of mine. We never miss.

******

[gazing at falling-snow crystal ball containing a mini-cemetary] Top Dollar: Dad gave me this. Fifth birthday. He said, "Childhood's over the moment you know you're gonna die."

******

Eric Draven: They're all dead. They just don't know it yet.

******

Albrecht: You, don't move! Eric Draven: I thought cops always said, "Freeze!" Albrecht: Well, I say "don't move." Move, Snow White, and you're dead! Eric Draven: And I say I am dead... and I move.

******

Sarah: What are you supposed to be, some kinda clown or something? Eric Draven: Sometimes.

******

Gideon: Please, I'm beggin' you. Don't kill me. Eric Draven: I'm not going to kill you. Your job will be to tell the rest of them that death is coming for them, tonight. And tell them Eric Draven sends his regards.

******

Eric Draven: Suddenly their came a tapping, as of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. You heard me rapping, right?

******

[Just before he stabs Tin-Tin] Eric Draven: Victims; aren't we all?

******

Eric Draven: It's not a good day to be a bad guy.

******

Albrecht: I thought you were, like, invincible. Eric Draven: Well I was, but not any more.

******

[Skank puts a gun to Tin Tin's head.] Skank: Fuck you, Tin Tin! [Tin Tin puts a knife to Skank's throat.] Tin Tin: Hey, that shit ain't even loaded, man. [Funboy points a gun at Tin Tin.] Funboy: But this one is. [T-Bird points a gun at all three of them.] T-Bird: Which of you Motor City motherfuckers wants to bet me THIS ONE ISN'T?!

******

Eric Draven: Is that gasoline I smell?

******

Eric Draven: I see you have made your decision, now let's see you enforce it. Top Dollar: Aw, this is already boring the shit out of me. Kill 'im!
