Lt. Vincent Hanna's Memorable Quotes:
Lt. Vincent Hanna
It's like you said. All I am is what I'm going after.
Lt. Vincent Hanna
Neil McCauley
So you never wanted a regular type life?What the fuck is that? Barbeques and ballgames?
Lt. Vincent Hanna
I gotta hold on to my angst. I preserve it because I need it. It keeps me sharp, on the edge, where I gotta be.
Lt. Vincent Hanna
I'm angry. I'm very angry, Ralph. You know, you can ball my wife if she wants you to. You can lounge around here on her sofa, in her ex-husband's dead-tech, post-modernistic bullshit house if you want to. But you do not get to watch my fucking television set!

Neil McCauley
What are you, a monk?I have a woman.What do you tell her?I tell her I'm a salesman.So then, if you spot me coming around that corner... you just gonna walk out on this woman? Not say good bye?That's the discipline.That's pretty vacant, you know.Yeah, it is what it is. It's that or we both better go do something else, pal.I don't know how to do anything else.Neither do I.I don't much want to either.Neither do I.

I guess the earth shattered?So why didn't you let Bosko take you home?I didn't wanna ruin their night too. What was it?You don't wanna know.I'd like to know what's behind that grim look on your face.I don't do that. You know it. Let's go, come on.You never told me I'd be excluded.I told you, when we hooked up, baby, that you were gonna have to share me with all the bad people and all the ugly events on this planet.And I bought into that sharing. Because I love you. I love you fat, bald, money, no money, driving a bus - I don't care. But you have got to be present like a normal guy, some of the time. That's sharing. This is not sharing, this is left overs.Oh, I see, what I should do is, er, come home and say "Hi honey! Guess what? I walked into this house today, where this junkie asshole just fried his baby in a microwave, because it was crying too loud. So let me share that with you. Come on, let's share that, and in sharing it, we'll somehow, er, cathartically dispel all that heinous shit". Right?

[pause]

Wrong.

You know, we are sitting here, you and I, like a couple of regular fellas. You do what you do, and I do what I gotta do. And now that we've been face to face, if I'm there and I gotta put you away, I won't like it. But I tell you, if it's between you and some poor bastard whose wife you're gonna turn into a widow, brother, you are going down.There is a flip side to that coin. What if you do got me boxed in and I gotta put you down? Cause no matter what, you will not get in my way. We've been face to face, yeah. But I will not hesitate. Not for a second.

My life's a disaster zone. I got a stepdaughter so fucked up because her real father's this large-type asshole. I got a wife, we're passing each other on the down-slope of a marriage - my third - because I spend all my time chasing guys like you around the block. That's my life.A guy told me one time, "Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner." Now, if you're on me and you gotta move when I move, how do you expect to keep a... a marriage?
Detective Casals
Lt. Vincent Hanna
You recognize the MO?M.O.? Is that they're good... Once it escalated into a murder one beef for all of 'em after they killed the first two guards, they didn't hesitate. Pop guard number three because... what difference does it make? Why leave a living witness? Drop of a hat these guys will rock and roll...

There's this cat I was locked up with in Folsom: did a couple, two-three years. He got out, and I ran into him.

[pauses, waiting for Richard to continue]

And so?He's a big fiend for action. Now if he'd said nothin', I'd have thought nothin'. But he goes on and on running down to me about how he ain't been doing nothin' and nothin's been going on and all this other bullshit, so right then and there I know: this cat's got somethin' goin' down.

[long pause]

Pretty fuckin' great.[to Albert] Albert, what's wrong with you? You drag me here, waste my time like this.[to Richard] You saw a guy, on the street, who's an ex-con?That's right.Well I am... over-fuckin' whelmed. What d'you want for that, a junior g-man badge?Hey man, you gonna make the call on them Porsches or what?[to Albert] Is he fucking kidding me?

So, what do you got for me?Before we even get into that, there's something we gotta get straight. There's a garage over off Sunset and Fig'. Now if someone were to pay it a visit tonight, they might find a pair of Cayman Turbos and a 911 Slope.You're looking to rid yourself of your competition.Well lemme put it another way, cousin. How do I know, that when I tell you what you wanna know, that you're gonna do what I need fucking done?Richard, look! Vincent's cool man! He and I have dealings all the time, brother!

[puts his arm around Richard's shoulders]

I ain't your cousin you rat motherfucker. And you know, because I *say* you know!
