- Everything goes to sleep.
- [commenting on crows] Those things are always waiting for something to die so they can eat it. What a weird job.
- Hank, do you ever feel evil?
- I wish somebody else had found that money.

- I mean, hell, Hank, I've never even kissed a girl. You know, if me becoming rich is gonna change all that, you know I'm all for it.

- Lou Chambers: What you gonna buy, Jakey boy?
- Jacob Mitchell: I'm gonna buy me a truck.
- Lou Chambers: No, fuck that. Get something classy – Trans-Am!

- Sometimes good people do evil things.
- Four million dollars and plenty of change.
