Eddie Cusack: When I want your opinion, I'll beat it out of you.
Luis Comacho: [Camacho and Cusack run into each other in a public building] One day, I would like to give you a gift of a Columbian necktie.
[his underlings laugh]
Luis Comacho: It's very special. You slit the throat, pull out the tongue and on you...
Luis Comacho: it would look beautiful.
Eddie Cusack: [smirking] Why don't you give it to me right now?
Brennan: Hey Sarge! You know how a Camacho's like a cue ball? Cause the harder you hit 'em, the better their English gets.
Cragie: Take a shot, kid! Little nerve killing.
Nick Kopalas: Look, I'm not nervous, all right, Cragie? I just gotta take a leak.
Cragie: You gotta take a leak, do it now.
Nick Kopalas: On some poor bastard's grave?
Cragie: Who cares? If someone was smart, they'd rip out all these graves and plant tomatoes. These people are no good. They're dead!
Felix Scalese: [aboard Scalese's yacht] Listen, if you got some extra cash, buy oranges. The price is low, and I can promise you, there's gonna' be a trucking strike.
Eddie Cusack: Is that a bribe, Mr. Scalese?
Felix Scalese: It's a prediction. No... I wouldn't try to bribe Eddie Cusack. They tell me you're incorruptible. Untarnished. I hear they call you "stainless steel" on the streets. Me - I think you're a pain in the ass.
Eddie Cusack: I'm looking for one of your nephews... Tony Luna.
Felix Scalese: [coldly] Goodbye, Mr. Cusack.
Eddie Cusack: There's a shit-storm coming, old man. And you can stop it.
Felix Scalese: [more firmly] Goodbye, Mr. Cusack!
Eddie Cusack: Nobody talks, right?
Felix Scalese: That's right, sergeant. Just like the cops. Just like the Comachos. Nobody talks. Omerta!
Eddie Cusack: I'm gonna' find Tony Luna, and I'm gonna' nail his ass - and anyone connected to him. You got that?
Felix Scalese: Why, you punk! Nobody threatens me!
Eddie Cusack: It's not a threat, Mr. Scalese... it's a prediction.
Dorato: [at a bar] Hey Eddie, partner, come here! How you doing? Eddie, I want you to meet a couple of friends of mine. This is Ruby. She's a dental hygienist. She's very oral. And this - this is Marlene. She works for a proctologist. Don't turn your back on her.
Cragie: [at the bar] Look what's here. Nice to see you out with the boys for a change... They tell me my sergeant wouldn't sign for me. Want to tell me why?
Eddie Cusack: [coldly] You know why.
Cragie: No. Tell me.
Eddie Cusack: Mister, you don't belong on the streets anymore.
Cragie: Fuck you! Where do you get off?
Eddie Cusack: Right about here.
