#1 Senator Roark: Tell anybody the truth and they're dead!
#2 Dwight: First, we gotta rescue Gail. Then comes the kill. The big, fat kill.
#3 Nancy, Age 11: They won't let me testify. I told the cops that you saved my life and they just acted like I was crazy. They talked my parents into keeping me away. They said that you done things that you didn't do. I told them that you saved me from that Roark creep, but they won't even check me out to see if I'm still a virgin. I'm still a virgin, still alive... thanks to you. They got it all backwards. John Hartigan: Sometimes the truth doesn't matter like it ought. But you'll always remember things right. That's gonna mean a lot to me. But stay away, Nancy. They'll kill you if you don't stay away. Don't visit me. Don't write me. Don't even say my name. Nancy, Age 11: Maybe you won't let me visit, but I'll still write to you, Hartigan. I'll sign my letters "Cordelia." That's the name of a really cool detective in books I read. I'll write to you every week... for forever. John Hartigan: Sure, kid. Now run on home. It's not safe for you here.
[Nancy walks away] John Hartigan: Bye, Nancy.
[Nancy turns around at the door] Nancy, Age 11: I love you.
#4 Cardinal Roark: Kevin? Is that you? Marv: [holding up Kevin's severed head] What's left of him, anyway. The dog ate the rest.
#5 [from trailer] Dwight: It's time to prove to your friends that you're worth a damn. Sometimes that means dying, sometimes it means killing a whole lot of people.
#6 Wendy: [to Marv] You can call me Goldie.
#7 Lenny: Hold on, Benny. I just want to make sure these two get along all right. Roark Jr.: And what kind of a beast couldn't get along with a precious little girl like this? You're probably scared now, but you have nothing to be scared of. All we're going to do is talk, just a nice talk, you and me. Don't you cry now.
#8 [repeated line] The Salesman: Care for a smoke?
#9 Dwight: I tell little Miho what has to be done. Then I'll make the most important phone call in my life.
#10 [last lines] The Salesman: [narrating] Turn the right corner in Sin City, and you can find anything... The Salesman: Becky, care for a smoke? Becky: [on cell phone] I love you too, mom. The Salesman: [narrating, screen goes black]... Anything.
#11 Dwight: [after asking Miho to put Jackie-Boy out of his misery] She doesn't quite chop his head off. She makes a Pez dispenser out of him.
#12 [repeated line] Dwight, Gail: Yeesh.
#13 Cop: Sir! There's no sign of the target. Marv: Here's a sign.
[comes up behind cop and swings hatchet into the cop's crotch]
#14 Bob: [Bob is waiting outside the city prison after Hartigan's release] It's a lotta miles into town, Hartigan. You care for a ride? John Hartigan: Long as you stay in front of me. Bob: Prison's made you paranoid. Talk about water under the bridge. Christ. [he takes a drag on his cigarette] Eight years. John Hartigan: [softly] Yeah. Eight years. Bob: Well, if it's any consolation to ya... [he takes another drag]... you made me hate myself.
#15 Stuka: [after getting shot with an arrow] Hey... Will ya look at that? It's right through me. Guys, look. It's cut a hole right through me. Schutz: There's something wrapped around it. Some kind of note. Manute: Give it to me. Stuka: Guys, this is starting to really hurt. Just look at it. It's poked a hole right through me. Guys? Manute: [reading the note] McCarthy, you fool. Stuka: Guys, don't you think maybe somebody oughta call a doctor for me or something? This isn't the kind of thing you just ignore, guys. Manute: Out back. Everyone. Bring the women. Stuka: Guys?
#16 Brian: [tossing a grenade at Miho] Suck on this, you stupid slag!
#17 Dwight: There's no use arguing with her, the ladies are their own enforcers.
#18 John Hartigan: Nancy's car. Six miles from the farm. "Nobody but me can keep this heap running" she told me. Good girl. The car stalled out on that yellow bastard and you didn't tell him how to start it up again. You kept your mouth shut. I'll bet Junior was furious.
#19 Dwight: This clown's out of control. I followed him here to make sure he didn't hurt any of the girls. Gail: Us helpless little girls.
#20 Wendy: [Marv has just easily shrugged off the ropes] You sat there and took it... when you could've taken my gun away from me any time you wanted to... Marv: Sure, but I thought I might be able to talk some sense into you. And I probably would've had to paste you one getting the gun. And I don't hurt girls.
