Nicky: It's about distraction. It's about focus. The brain is slow and it can't multitask. Tap him here, take from there.
Nicky: There's two kinds of people in this world. There's hammers and there's nails. You decide which one you want to be.
Nicky: Here's the thing about lying. Here's the problem: it fucks up all your options. Paints you into a corner.
Owens: What the fuck you talking about? You out of your mind?
Nicky: And then you're forced to do some really dumb shit.
Owens: You wanna die?
Nicky: Well, if I die, I die telling the truth. And if I lie, I'm gonna lie like normal people lie.
Owens: Love'll get you killed in this racket. No place for that shit here. No happiness with that. You know how they say there's honor among thieves? Well, you're no thief, Mellow. You made your choice.
Nicky: I can convince anyone of anything. I once convinced a man that an empty warehouse was the federal reserve, so I'm good.
