Violet: Caesar, you don't know shit.

Caesar: What did she do to you?

Violet: Everything you couldn't.

Violet: I'm not apologizing for what I did. I'm apologizing for what I didn't do.

Corky: If there's one thing I can't stand about sleeping with women, it's all the fucking mind-reading.

Violet: We're not that different, Corky.

Corky: Ah, let's see. This is the part where you tell me what matters is on the inside, and that inside of you there's a little dyke just like me.

Violet: No, she's nothing like you. She's a whole lot smarter than you are.

[drinks from beer bottle]

Violet: Thirsty, maybe?

Corky: When you get tired of Cagney and Lacey, find me.

Corky: What are you doing?

Violet: Isn't it obvious? I'm trying to seduce you.

Corky: Why?

Violet: Because I want... to. I've wanted to ever since I saw you that day in the elevator. I know you don't believe me, but I can prove it to you. You can't believe what you see. But you can believe... what you feel. I've been thinking about you all day.

Violet: We make our own choices, we pay our own prices.

Corky: For me, stealing's always been a lot like sex. Two people who want the same thing: they get in a room, they talk about it. They start to plan. It's kind of like flirting. It's kind of like... foreplay, 'cause the more they talk about it, the wetter they get. The only difference is, I can fuck someone I've just met. But to steal? I need to know someone like I know myself.

Violet: You think you know me like that?

Gino Marzzone: Caesar, you gotta do me a favor. A personal favor for me. You gotta start respecting Johnnie, the way you respect me. Capisce? Good, good. And you, Johnnie. You gotta stop acting stupid. You gonna earn this respect that Caesar's gonna give. Capisce? Good, done!

Corky: You planned this whole thing. You dropped that earring down the sink on purpose, didn't you?

Violet: If I say yes, will you take your hand away?

Corky: No.

Violet: Yes.

Violet: Caesar, I'm leaving.

Caesar: What? Oh, come on, I didn't use one of the good towels.

Corky: So, Caesar works for the Mafia?

Violet: Strange, nobody calls it that anymore. Caesar calls it "the Business."

Corky: [after making love with Violet] I can see again!

Violet: Try not to steal anything on your way out...

Violet: I have this image of you - inside of me - like a part of me.

Violet: Gino doesn't speak much English, or at least he pretends not to.

Violet: Shelly knows what I am. He saw me in a bar with another woman.

Corky: Yeah, I suppose he just wants to watch.

[Caesar is aiming his gun at Corky, who is tied up - 'bound' as the title has it]

Caesar: God. I should have seen this coming the minute I met you. Everybody knows your kind can't be trusted. Fucking queers make me sick. But you made a fatal mistake. You tried fucking the wrong guy. And I swear to you that I'm going to kill you for it. Where's my money?

Violet: Don't tell him.

Caesar: Shut up, Violet!

Violet: He can't kill you.

Caesar: [He aims the gun at Violet] Violet!

Violet: Not until he has the money.

[He fires the gun at the wall behind Violet to scare and silence her]

Caesar: Now. Where is it?

Corky: Lick me.

Caesar: Where is my money?

Corky: Either pull the trigger or get that fucking thing out of my face.

Violet: Oh, Johnnie hits on me all the time. He hits on anything in high heels.

Corky: So what are you saying? You don't have sex with men?

Violet: I don't.

Corky: Oh, for Christ's sake, Violet, I heard you. Thin walls, remember?

Caesar: I'm a dead man, Johnnie? I'm a fucking dead man? Guess again, Johnnie. Who's the dead man? Who? Who's dead, fuckface? Who? Who? I can't hear you, Johnnie. Guess again. Take another guess, Johnnie. Take another fucking guess.

Violet: I want what's mine; I want half the money. We get rid of Micky, and no one else dies. No one. Say, "Yes, I understand."

Caesar: Yes, I unnerstan'.

Micky Malnato: Now I'm gonna ask you 10 times, Shelly, 10 times.

Caesar: It's fuckin' dark in here!

Violet: They're just cops.

Corky: You can't kill me.

Caesar: Oh really? Why not?

Corky: I could be lying.

Violet: [to Corky] Hold the elevator. Thanks.

Johnnie Marzzone: [after being shot] Don't shoot.

Corky: Either pull the trigger or get that fucking thing out of my face.
