Fletcher: I want you to play a game with me, Ray.
Raymond: I don’t want to play a game.
Fletcher: Oh, please.
Fletcher: I said, play a game with me, Raymond.
Fletcher: I want you to imagine a character, your boss, Mickey Pearson.
Raymond: You’re too smart to be blackmailing us, Fletcher.
Fletcher: [to Raymond] The plot begins to thicken. Now, I can’t be specific about the heroes and zeros, but our protagonist is a hungry animal. There is a lot of money hanging in the balance. Our antagonist explodes on the scene, like a millennial firework. And he’s indirectly started a war.
Mickey Pearson: Sweet Mary-Jayne is my life. Your poison on the other hand, is and always will be a destroyer of worlds.
Dry Eye: You’re out of touch, and I would like you to consider an offer.
Mickey Pearson: I am not for sale.
Mickey Pearson: There once was young and foolish dragon, who came to ask a wise and cunning lion about acquiring his territory. The lion, he wasn’t interested. So he told the little dragon to f**k off. The dragon, he persisted.
Fletcher: Oh, goodie. He started a war.
Mickey Pearson: The lion took the little dragon for a walk, and put five bullets in his little dragon head.
Fletcher: He’s warming up now, isn’t he?
Mickey Pearson: There’s a message in there. Maybe you can explain it to me.
Dry Eye: The young succeed the old!
Raymond: I think you need to see this, boss.

Mickey Pearson: That’s in one of my vault rooms.
Mickey Pearson: How did they find it?
Raymond: I’m making inquiries.
[to Ray; referring to the man tied up in the boot of his car]
Coach: His name is Phahock, but spelt with a PA, so it sounds like fahock.
Coach: Alright, Phahock, calm the fahock down.
Rosalind: [to Mickey] If you smell smoke, it’s because there’s a fire. So you’re going to have to stamp that out quickly.
Raymond: [to Mickey] One of your associates had an accident.
Rosalind: So you killed someone?
Raymond: No, it was the gravity that killed him.
Fletcher: These people are going to clean house, and you are part of that house.
Mickey Pearson: In the jungle, the only way a lion survives, not by acting like a king, by being a king.
Mickey Pearson: There’s only one rule in this jungle! When the lion is hungry, he eats.
Fletcher: Oh, it’s really warming up now, isn’t it?
