D.A. gave me
immunity. Dave Kujan:
Not from me. You get no immunity from me, you piece of shit. Every
criminal I have put in prison, every cop that owes me a favor, every
creep and scumbag that walks the streets for a living will know the
name of Verbal Kint. Now you talk to me, or that precious immunity they
seem so fit to grant you won't be worth the paper the contract put out
on your life is printed on. Verbal: There
was a lawyer.
[McManus throws bag of
Redfoot. Redfoot catches it] McManus: What
am I supposed to
do with that? Redfoot the Fence: I
know, feed it to the gimp. Ease his pain, I don't know what that is. [Redfoot throws bag at
Verbal] Keaton: What
do you mean you
don't know? [McManus tries to speak,
Keaton lays a
hand on McManus] Keaton: Shut
up. Redfoot the Fence:
know. I got thrown this job by some lawyer. Keaton:
Yeah? Who? Redfoot the Fence: I
know. Some limey. He's a middleman for somebody, okay? He doesn't say,
don't ask. McManus: You're
of shit. Redfoot the Fence:
Fuck you. McManus: Fuck
Listen to me. We want
to meet him, okay? Redfoot the Fence: That's
funny. He called me last night, he says he wants to meet you guys. Keaton:
Okay, we'll meet him.
Redfoot the Fence: I'll
you. Keaton: Good.
Do that. No
problem. Let's go. [Keaton turns around,
ready to leave
but McManus grabs him] McManus:
I don't like it, Dean. I don't like it. Wait a minute. One more thing,
tough guy. Any more surprises, and I'm gonna kill you. Redfoot the Fence: You're
a tough guy, McManus. But do me a favor, all right Get the fuck off my
dick. [Redfoot flicks his
cigarette butt at
McManus and it lands on McManus's eye] McManus:[in pain] Fuck! [McManus lunges at him
in rage but
he's restrained by Keaton] Redfoot
the Fence: Put a leash on that puppy. You know, it's an
about Saul gettin' whacked. Cops are gonna be looking for the guys who
Sooner or later they're gonna come around asking me. You have a sweet
[answering Keaton] Kobayashi:
Mr. Redfoot knew nothing. Mr. Soze rarely works with the same people
for very long, and they never know who they're working for. One cannot
be betrayed if one has no people. Fenster: So
why are you telling
Because you have stolen from Mr.Soze, Mr Fenster. All of you. That you
did not know you stole from him is the only reason you are still alive.
He feels you owe him. You will repay your debt. Hockney: All
right, fuck the
debt. And fuck you! How do we know you work for Soze? Kobayashi:
I don't think that is very relevant, Mr Hockney. All five of you are
responsible for the murder of Saul Berg and his bodyguards. Mr. Redfoot
can testify to your involvement, and we can see to it that he will.
way I hear it,
Soze is some kind of butcher. A peerless, psycho, fucked-up butcher. Keaton: There
is no Keyser
[to Kujan] Verbal: Who
is Keyser Soze? He
is supposed to be Turkish. Some say his
father was German. Nobody ever believed he was real. Nobody ever knew
him or saw anybody that ever worked directly for him, but to hear
tell it, anybody could have worked for Soze. You never knew. That was
his power. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the
world he didn't exist.
[telling Kujan the story
He lets the last Hungarian go. He waits until his wife and kids are in
the ground and then he goes after the rest of the mob. He kills their
kids, he kills their wives, he kills their parents and their parents'
friends. He burns down the houses they live in and the stores they work
in, he kills people that owe them money. And like that he was gone.
Underground. Nobody has ever seen him since. He becomes a myth, a spook
story that criminals tell their kids at night. "Rat on your pop, and
Keyser Soze will get you." And no one ever really believes. Dave Kujan:
him, Verbal? Verbal:
Keaton always said, "I
don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him." Well I believe
in God, and the only thing that scares me is Keyser Soze.
I came clean. I told it like it happened on the boat. So what if I left
out how I got there? It's so full of holes, the D.A. would've
told me to blow amnesty out my ass. So you got what you wanted out of
me. So big fucking deal. Dave Kujan: So
you never told the D.A. Verbal: Well
you tell me,
Kujan. If I told you the Loch Ness monster hired me to hit the harbor,
what would you say?
got immunity now.
What can you possibly offer me? Dave Kujan: If
there is a
Keyser Soze he's gonna come looking for you. Verbal:
Where's your head,
Agent Kujan? Where do you think the pressure's coming from?
Soze, or whatever you want to call him, he knows where I am right now.
He's got the front burner under your ass to let me go so he can scoop
me up ten minutes later. Immunity was just a deal with you assholes. I
got a whole new problem when I post bail. Dave Kujan:
So why play into
his hands? We can protect you. Verbal: Oh,
gee, thanks, Dave.
Bang-up job so far. Extortion, coercion. You'll pardon me if
ask you to kiss my pucker. The same fuckers that rounded us up and sank
us into this mess are now bailing me out? Fuck you. You think you can
catch Keyser Soze? You think a guy like that comes this close to
getting caught and sticks his head out? If he comes up for
anything, it will be to get rid of me. After that...my guess is you'll
never hear from him again.
[after finding Fenster's
body] McManus: It's
payback. Keaton: It's
not payback! It's
precaution. You want payback? You wanna run? I don't care! I'm not
doing this for Fenster, I'm not doing it for you...I'm doing this for
I'm gonna finish this thing. This Kobayashi bastard is not gonna stand
Hockney and Verbal attempt to kill Kobayashi] Kobayashi:
Now get some rest. The boat will be ready for
you on Friday. If I see you or any of your friends before then, Miss.
Finneran will find herself the victim of a most gruesome violation
before she dies. As indeed will your father, Mr. Hockney, and your
Randall in Arizona, Mr. Kint. I might only castrate Mr. McManus's
nephew, David. Do I make myself clear?
Hockney, McManus and
Verbal: I just can't believe we're going to walk into
walkie-talkie] Hockney: You
kids ready? McManus: I
would be if I
didn't have to stop and answer to you.
[on the boat roof] McManus:[to himself] Old
McDonald had a
farm, ee-aye, ee-aye, oh. And on this farm he shot some guys.
Ba-da-bip, ba-da-bing, bang-boom.
[McManus walks across
towards Keaton] Keaton: McManus.
What the fuck
is going on? McManus: The
[he slumps down, Keaton
Dave Kujan: Try
to tell me you
saw someone kill Keaton.
don't know what
you're talking about. I did. I did see Keaton. Dave Kujan: You're
me. You've known, you've known this whole fucking time! Verbal: I
don't know what
you're saying. Dave Kujan: You
know... Verbal: I
did see Keaton get
shot, I swear to you. Dave Kujan: Then
you help him? You had a gun. Why didn't you help him? He was your
friend. Verbal: Because
I was afraid,
okay? Afraid. Dave Kujan: Afraid
Afraid of... Verbal: I
knew it was Keyser
Soze. Dave Kujan: But
Keaton... Verbal: It
Soze, Agent Kujan. I mean the Devil himself. How do you shoot the Devil
in the back? What if you miss?
Dave Kujan: Keaton
Soze. Verbal: No. Dave Kujan: The
kind of man
who could wrangle the wills of men like Hockney and McManus. The kind
of man who could engineer a police lineup...through all his years of
contacts in N.Y.P.D. The kind of man who could have killed Edie
Finnernan. She was found yesterday at a hotel in Pennsylvania, shot
twice in the head. What do you think about Keaton now Verbal?
knew him. He would
never... Dave Kujan: He
He programmed you to tell us just what he wanted you to. He knew we
were close. You said it yourself. Where was the political pressure
coming from? Why were you being protected? It was Keaton. Immunity was
your reward. Verbal: But
why me? Why not
Fenster, McManus or Hockney? Why me? I'm stupid. I'm a cripple. Why me? Dave Kujan: Because
cripple, Verbal. Because you're stupid. Because you're weaker than them.
[referring to Keaton] Verbal: You
think he's... Dave Kujan: Keyser
don't know, Verbal.
Keyser Soze's a shield, or like you said, a spook story.
Dave Kujan: If
to get you, they're gonna get you out there. Turn state's evidence. You
might never see trial. Verbal: Maybe
so. But I'm not
a rat, Agent Kujan. [he gets up and walks
out of the
office door then stops and turns to Kujan]
[in Kujan's flashback] Jeff Rabin:
This guy is
protected from up on high by
the Prince of Darkness.
[last lines; Kujan's
Verbal on the street outside the Police station, he has flashbacks
of Verbal telling him about Keyser Soze]
guess is that you'll never hear from him
again. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the
world he didn't exist. And
like that...he's gone.
