Forrest Bondurant: It is not the violence that sets men apart, alright, it is the distance that he is prepared to go.
Forrest Bondurant: Jack, look at me. We're survivors. We control the fear. And without the fear, we are all as good as dead. Do you understand? - Do you?
Forrest Bondurant: I thought I walked.
Forrest Bondurant: I'm a Bondurant. We don't lay down for nobody.
Forrest Bondurant: Have you met Howard?
Maggie Beauford: [to Forrest Bondurant] Isn't that just like you to believe your own damn legend?
Floyd Banner: [after knocking out Gummy Walsh with a shovel] I've got every lawman in three fucking states up my ass. The last thing I need is some hard-ass crackers pulling a blood feud on me! Now get this sack of shit out of here!
Jack Bondurant: Tell your daddy I said "hi".
Jack Bondurant: You can make moonshine whiskey from just about anything. Turnips, pumpkins, blackberries, cornmeal, tree bark. Anything.
Floyd Banner: I respect you Bondurants standing up to that Commonwealth's District Attorney. He's got everybody in his pocket. He takes a shit and half of Virginia falls out his ass.
Forrest Bondurant: [to beaten up deputies] Now, you all oughta know better than to come around here when Hal's been on the stump whiskey for a few days.
Jack Bondurant: Nowadays we Bondurants abide by the law. People ain't tryin' to cut our throats, stab us, or shoot us no more. Them days are long gone. Sometimes when I'm out on the porch just sittin' around doin' nothin', hell, it sure does get real quite around here.
Maggie Beauford: Are you Forrest Bondurant? I'm Maggie Beauford.
Charlie Rakes: You see, these mountain boys got injun blood in them. Cherokee. This would explain why they're animalistic in their nature.
Forrest Bondurant: What I'm trying to say is, the course of your life it is changing. You don't even see it.
Mugger #2: What are you talkin' bout?
[Forrest punches him with iron knuckles, knocking mugger unconscious]
Howard Bondurant: Yeah, that's what he's talking' bout.
Howard Bondurant: [Looking at a shocked Jack Bondurant] You alright there, Jack?
Jack Bondurant: Caught me off guard is all.
Howard Bondurant: You still good to drive?
Jack Bondurant: Fuck you, Howard.
