#1 Young Michael: What do you want? Nokes: A blowjob. Down on your knees.
#2 Father Bobby: What about the life that was taken, Shakes? What's that worth? Lorenzo: To me? Nothing.
#3 King Benny: Father Bobby would have made a good hitman. It's a shame we lost him to the other side.
#4 Father Bobby: [about Shakes' prank in the church] Nuns are such easy targets.
#5 Woman at Subway Station: Sweet Jesus! What have you boys done? What in the name of God have you boys done? Young Michael: I think we just killed a man.
#6 Lorenzo: [narrating about Father Bobby] I told him about the torture, the beating and the rapes. I told him about four frightened boys who prayed to Father Bobby's God for help that never came. I told him everything.
#7 Rizzo: Why is saturday any different? Young Michael: cause on Saturday we can hit back, look they don't fuck with you like they do with us, but they fuck with you in another way, you're just an animal to them. Rizzo: I don't give a fuck Young Michael: Yeah you do, and beating them on Saturday won't make a difference. Rizzo: Then why, white boy, why? Young Michael: To make them feel what we feel, just for a couple of hours.
#8 Shakes' Father: [to Shakes' mother] I buried one fucking wife, I can bury another.
#9 Michael: Revenge. Sweet lasting revenge. Now it's time for all of us to get a taste.
#10 Fat Mancho: You want a Rolls-Royce, you don't come here, no no. You go to England, or wherever the fuck they make it. If you want champagne, you go see the French. If you need money, you find a Jew. But, if you want dirt, or scum buried under a rock somewhere, or some secret nobody wants anybody to know about, there's only one place to go: right here, Hell's Kitchen. It is the lost and found of shit. They lose it and we find it. Forget about it, man.
#11 Nokes: What do you want? John: What I've always wanted. To watch you die.
#12 Father Bobby: [about sermons, before the boys are sentenced] This is one of my favorites. Young Lorenzo 'Shakes' Carcaterra: What is? Father Bobby: "Whatever you do to the least of brethren, you do to me".
#13 Father Bobby: Listen, I got a story I want to tell you. Young Tommy Marcano: It ain't the one about the lepers, is it? Cause that one gave me nightmares.
#14 Detective: Where'd you get this evidence? Lorenzo: It fell into my lap.
#15 Lorenzo: A number of the inmates, as tough as they acted during the day, would often cry themself to sleep at night. There were other cries, too. Diffrent from those full with fear and lonelyness. They were low and muffled, the sounds of pain and anguish.Those cries can change the course of a life. They are cries that once heard, can never be erased from the memory. On this one night those cries belonged to my friend John, when guard Ferguson paid him a visit.
#16 Michael: You read the Count of Monte Cristo lately? Lorenzo: I dunno, 10 years ago Michael: I read a little bit every night. I read words like revenge, sweet, lasting revenge.
#17 [voice over] Lorenzo: Most priests like to preach from the pulpit. Father Bobby liked to talk during the bump and shove of a pick-up game.
#18 Lorenzo: In truth we were all surprised in Michael's action. But in his mind losing that game and handing a feeling of victory was more important to a girl in a wheelchair was more then the right thing to do.
#19 Tommy: [after John shot Nokes in the groin] Did that hurt, Nokes?
#20 Priest: You will be defenders of the faith. You will be soldiers of Christ.
