Carlito 'Charlie' Brigante's Memorable Quotes:
Carlito
I'm reloaded! Okay? Come on in here, you motherfuckers! Come on, I'm waitin' for ya! What, you ain't comin' in? Okay, I'm comin' out! Oh, you up against me now, motherfuckers! I'm gonna blow your fuckin' brains out! You think you're big time? You gonna fuckin' die big time! You ready? HERE COMES THE PAIN!
Carlito
You a gangster now. You can't learn it at school... you can't have a late start.
Carlito
If I ever, I mean if I ever see you here again, you die.

[Snaps fingers]

Just like that.
Carlito
It's who I am Gail, it's what I am. Right or wrong, I can't change that.
Benny Blanco
Carlito
I don't know, but there may be some mis-fuckin'-understanding, I don't know man, but maybe you don't remember me, my name is Benny Blanco...Maybe I don't give a shit. Maybe I don't remember the last time I blew my nose either. Who the fuck are you, I should remember you? What, you think you like me? You ain't like me motherfucker. You a punk. I've been with made people, connected people. Who you been with? Chain-snatching, jive-ass, maricon motherfuckers. Why don't you get lost? Go a head, snatch a purse. Come on, take a fuckin' walk.
Carlito

[during his trial]

But my time in the Sterling Correctional facilities of Greenhaven and Sing Sing has not been in vain. I've been cured; born again, like the Watergaters. I know you've heard this rap before, your honor, I've changed. I've changed, and it didn't take no thirty years like your honor thought, but only five.
Carlito

[voiceover and closing narration]

Sorry boys, all the stitches in the world can't sew me together again. Lay down... lay down. Gonna stretch me out in Fernandez funeral home on Hun and Ninth street. Always knew I'd make a stop there, but a lot later than a whole gang of people thought... Last of the Moh-Ricans... well maybe not the last. Gail's gonna be a good mom... New improved Carlito Brigante... Hope she uses the money to get out. No room in this city for big hearts like hers... Sorry baby, I tried the best I could, honest... Can't come with me on this trip, Loaf. Getting the shakes now, last call for drinks, bars closing down... Sun's out, where are we going for breakfast? Don't wanna go far. Rough night, tired baby... Tired...
Carlito
Favor gonna kill you faster than a bullet.
Carlito
If you can't see the angles no more, you're in trouble.
Carlito
Don't take me to no hospital, please. Fuckin' emergency rooms don't save nobody. Som-bitches, always pop you at midnight, when all they got is a Chinese intern with a dull spoon.
Carlito
You think you're big time? You gonna fuckin' die - big time.
Carlito
Mi barrio ya no existe.

[My neighborhood doesn't exist anymore]

Carlito

Carlito
I'll tell you something, car rental guys don't get killed that much.
Carlito
He's got a good future if he can live past next week.
Carlito
The dream don't come no closer by itself. We gotta run after it now.
Carlito
[after Dave nearly told the boat plan][to Dave] If you ever talk that shit again in front of her, I'm going to kill you.
Carlito
[boat trip night][voice over] Already I had a bad feeling about the boat trip night as soon as I saw Dave. He was all coked up so much that his nostrils were red and swollen. Bad start Jack.
Carlito
[voiceover] There is a line you cross, you don't never come back from. Point of no return. Dave crossed it. I'm here with him. That's means I am going along for the ride. The whole ride. All the way to the end of the line, wherever that is.
Carlito
[to Gail] There I am, sitting in jail, wondering where you are, what you're doing, who you're with.
Carlito
Let me get this straight, he's gonna jump off a barge, swim a hundred yards, to a buoy? in the east river? Impossible, its too rough he is going to die.
Carlito
David Kleinfeld
You ripped him off didn't you?What?Tony Taglialucci. You did take his money?[guiltily] Yeah.Dave, you not a lawyer no more, you a gangster now. On the other side. A whole new ball game. You can't learn about it in school, and you can't have a late start.
Steffie
Carlito

[after having sex with Kleinfeld]

Carlito, where have you been hiding this man? He is one sexy man, he is an animal!Faster than a speeding bullet.
Carlito
I don't invite this shit, it just comes to me. I run, it runs after me. Gotta be somewhere to hide.
Frankie Taglialucci
Carlito
This guy a friend of yours?Yeah, he's a friend of mine.He's a fucking cockroach.
Saso
Carlito
Listen to me carefully, Carlito. Rudy says Pachanga is complaining about being broke; that he doesn't have a single dollar. He's also saying that you're a piece of shit, and that you don't have the balls to take care of the problem; and he's wasted a lot of time without making any money. Besides, I hear he's spying on us for Benny Blanco.Let me deal with Pachanga. He's my brother.He's your brother? That son of a bitch would kill his mother for money.
Rudy
Steffie
Carlito
Waiter
Carlito, Mr. Benny Blanco says it's gonna be okay. He wants to send a bottle of champagne over, and he wants you to send Steffie over, when you're ready.Carlito, what should I do?No problem, Steffie.

[to Rudy]

Steffie's with Dave now.But Benny said...Fuck Benny!Carlito, this is from Benny Blanco.Send it back![2045]:[to the waiter] Vete! Vete![2045]:[to Carlito] Charlie, please, you can't do this. Benny Blanco spends a lot of money here.Oh, he's a nickel-bagger. Come on.[2045]:What happened to you? What are you acting like this for? It doesn't make sense you should hate this guy. Because this guy is you 20 years ago.
