Get Shorty

Get Shorty

Chili Palmer: "Whew, this movie business is tough. I might just have to go back to loan-sharking for a while to get some vacation."

Bobby: "Mr. Barbone? Hi, my name's Bobby, I'll be your driver. How was your flight?"
Ray Barboni: "Yeah? Well I hope you drive better than you fuckin spell, jack off. The name's Barboni, not Barbone!"

Ray Barboni: "I'm from Miami-fuckin'-Beach and you wanna show me the ocean, huh? And what about sun, does it ever shine around here, or is this smog around all the time?"
Bobby: "They say the smog is the reason we have such beautiful sunsets."
Ray Barboni: "That's what they say, huh? What a bunch of fuckin bullshit."

Bo Catlett: "Man, I can't wait for you to be dead."

(About Martin Weir's inability to act.)
Chili: "You can't just turn a Martin Weir into a Mel Gibson."

Leo: "But you don't even know where I'll be. I don't even know where I'll be."
Chili: "I'll find you, Leo. You leave a trail like a fucking caterpillar."

Nicky: "How's Momo these days anyway?"
Chili: "Dead."

Martin: "And I'm wondering: how did it all slip away?"
Karen: "Well, it didn't slip away, Martin. You did, when you went off to fuck Nicky at my birthday party."
Martin: "Yeah, that was a good party."

(After kissing Harry)
Doris: "Well, aren't you gonna offer me whatever it is you taste like?"

Chili: "How did you get in here?"
Ray Bones: "It was easy. I told 'em I was you, I acted real stupid and they believed me."

Karen: ""I'll think about it" means nothing in L.A.."

Ray "Bones" Barboni: "Let me explain something to you. Momo is dead. Which means everything he had now belongs to Jimmy Cap, including you. Which also means, when I speak, I speak for Jimmy. E.g., from now on, you start showing me the proper fuckin' respect."
Chili Palmer: ""E.g." means "for example". What I think you want to use is "i.e."."
Ray "Bones" Barboni: "Bullshit! That's short for "ergo"."
Chili Palmer: "Ask your man."
Bodyguard: "To the best of my knowledge, "e.g." means "for example"."
Ray "Bones" Barboni: "E.g., i.e., fuck you! The point is this: When I say "jump", you say "OK", okay?"

Karen Flores: "Weren't you scared back there?"
Chili Palmer: "You bet."
Karen Flores: "You don't act like it."
Chili Palmer: "Well, I was scared then, but I'm not scared now. How long do you want me to be scared?"

Bo Catlett: "You think we watch any of your movies, Harry? I've seen better film on teeth."

Chili Palmer: "I'm the guy who's telling you the way it is."

Ray Bones: "Fuck you, fuckball."

Chili Palmer: "Martin, look at me."
Martin Weir: "I'm looking at you"
Chili Palmer: "No, look at me the way I'm looking at you."

Ray Bones: "They say the fucking smog is the fucking reason you have such beautiful fucking sunsets."

Chili Palmer: "I'm not going to say anymore than I have to, if that."

Harry Zimm: "I once asked this literary agent what writing paid the best, and he said, "ransom notes.""

Bo Catlett: "What is the point of living in L.A. if you're not in the movie business?"
