Joe Black: How are you doing?
William Parrish: What the hell do you care?
Joe Black: Just asking, Bill.
William Parrish: You wanna know? I'll tell you. You're looking at a man who is not walking through the valley of the shadow of death. He's galloping into it. At the same time, the business he built with his own hands and head has been commandeered by a couple of cheap pirates. Oh, yes! I almost forgot. My daughter's fallen in love with Death.

William Parrish: You want me to be your guide?
Joe Black: You fit the bill, Bill.

Joe Black: Bill, why at this juncture are you letting yourself be so concerned by business matters?
William Parrish: I don't want anybody buying up my life's work! Turning it into something it wasn't meant to be. A man wants to leave something behind. And he wants it left behind the way he made it. He wants it to be run the way he run it, with a sense of honor, of dedication, of truth. Okay?
Joe Black: Easy, Bill. You'll give yourself a heart attack and ruin my vacation.

William Parrish: Should I be afraid?
Joe Black: Not a man like you.

Joe Black: Are you threatening me?
William Parrish: Yeah, I certainly hope so. Yeah. I loved Susan from the moment she was born, and I love her now and every minute in between. And what I dream of is a man who will discover her, and that she will discover a man who will love her, who is worthy of her, who is of this world, of this time, and has the grace, compassion and fortitude to walk beside her as she makes her way through this beautiful thing called life.
