Get Shorty


Chili Palmer: Whew, this movie business is tough. I might just have to go back to loan-sharking for a while to get some vacation.

Bo Catlett: Man, I can’t wait for you to be dead.

Nicky: How’s Momo these days anyway?
Chili: Dead.

Karen: “I’ll think about it” means nothing in L.A.

Karen Flores: Weren’t you scared back there?
Chili Palmer: You bet.
Karen Flores: You don’t act like it.
Chili Palmer: Well, I was scared then, but I’m not scared now. How long do you want me to be scared?

Bo Catlett: You think we watch any of your movies, Harry? I’ve seen better film on teeth.

Chili Palmer: I’m not going to say anymore than I have to, if that.

Harry Zimm: I once asked this literary agent what writing paid the best, and he said, “ransom notes.”

Bo Catlett: What is the point of living in L.A. if you’re not in the movie business?
