Leo O'Bannion: If I never see him again, it would be soon enough.

Johnny Caspar: You double-cross once - where's it all end? An interesting ethical question.

O'Doole: Look, don't nobody ask me, since I'm just the chief around here, but I'll tell you my opinion. Caspar is just as crazy as Leo, and an eye-tie into the bargain.

Mink: Hey Tom, what's the rumpus?

Tom Reagan: You don't hold elected office in this town. You run it because people think you do. They stop thinking it you stop running it.

Verna: Shouldn't you be doing your job?
Tom Reagan: Intimidating helpless women is my job.
Verna: Then go find one, and intimidate her.

Continuity mistake: When Bernie pays a visit to Tom after he decided not to kill him, Bernie has a pistol lying on the small table next to the armchair he is sitting on. When Bernie is talking first the gun is white, but when the shot changes to Tom and back to Bernie the pistol somehow turns into a black one.
