Waikiki: Three minutes.
[as they are about to rob a bank]
Honolulu: Open the vault now!
[as they are robbing the bank, referring to the pen in the man’s jacket pocket]
Honolulu: Oh, that’s real nice.
Man: You don’t want it.
Honolulu: No, I really do.
Police: Hit the ground now!
Waikiki: I need to make a call.
[answering a call]
Jean Thomas: Hello? How can I help? Yeah, I got two rooms left.
[the bank robbers arrive at Hotel Artemis with one of them wounded]
Jean Thomas: Easy fellas. Everyone’s going to get fixed up. Now verify your memberships and we’re off to the races.
Man #1: This thing is covered in blood.
Jean Thomas: It’s always covered in blood.
Waikiki: The Artemis is a secret hospital for criminals.
Jean Thomas: This is America. Eighty-five percent of what I fix is bullet holes.
Jean Thomas: I thought you were done with all this.
Waikiki: I got out, but you know how it goes.
Jean Thomas: You’re never out, not up here.
[points to her head]
Honolulu: Oh, man. My cute little suit.
Waikiki: We’ll get you another one, without all the holes in there.
[referring to Hotel Artemis]
Morgan: I thought this place was a myth.
Jean Thomas: We’ve been here for twenty-two years. This hospital was built on two things: trust and rules.
Everest: You see that badge, that means I’m a healthcare professional.
Nice: I’m in position to finish the job, but I need a thirty percent raise for inconvenience and because you’re fucking gross.
Nice: It’s pronounced “Neece”.
Acapulco: I was talking about your ass, not your room allocation.
Nice: You’re an arms dealer, right?
Acapulco: Don’t push my buttons. Don’t you do that.
Everest: Hey, you put your dirty boots on the sofa in your own house?
Acapulco: Oh, hey, go fuck yourself!
[to Acapulco; referring to Nice]
Waikiki: I’m a professional, but this woman, she’s the business. If you knew what she could do to you with just that cup of coffee.
Nice: You’re lucky this place has rules.
Waikiki: [to Honolulu] The Artemis isn’t safe for us as it is.
[referring to the pen that Honolulu took from the man at the vault]
Waikiki: It’s a portable vault.
Nice: Worth about eighteen million.
Waikiki: The Wolf King is probably going to want this back.
Jean Thomas: Okay, this is a real problem.
Everest: The Wolf King of LA.
Jean Thomas: Such a dumb name.
Man #2: The Wolf King is in the building.
[referring to The Wolf King]
Jean Thomas: He’s here.
Ilya: Open the gate!
Jean Thomas: That’s against the rules.
The Wolf King: The rules? Without the rule breakers, honey, where would you be?
The Wolf King: [to Jean] People don’t always do what they’re told.
Honolulu: You got like a plan?
Waikiki: You’re my brother, I love you.
Computer: 3D printing complete.
[we see a 3D print of a gun]
Waikiki: I got the next best thing. I got a gun.
Nice: You need to leave here right fucking now.
The Wolf King: I guess my ballroom days are over, baby.
Everest: It’s a warzone up here.
Morgan: Am I going to make it out of here?
Waikiki: We can do it together.
Nice: This is what I do.
Everest: Visiting hours are never…
Jean Thomas: Busy night at The Artemis.
Acapulco: You know, you might want to buy some scented candles or something, because it smells like somebody died in here.
Jean Thomas: They did.
Jean Thomas: Rule number one: don’t kill any other patients!
Acapulco: Why don’t you just skip the fuck along?
Jean Thomas: No water in LA, but it’s raining assholes in here.
Acapulco: [to Nice] I got to fucking kill you now! And I don’t really want to do that because I feel like we got chemistry.
Jean Thomas: Things are going to hell in a handbasket full of blood and shit!
Everest: When I walk away, don’t jump on my back, okay? If you do, I’m going to fuck you up for real this time.
