There are two kinds of people in his up-tight world: his victims and his women. And sometimes you can't tell them apart.


  • Cell. Prison Cell. How did I get here?


  • You're a pathetic sight, Walker, from where I'm standing. Chasing shadows. You're played out. It's over. You're finished. What would you do with the money if you got it? It wasn't yours in the first place. Why don't you just lie down - and die?
  • [to Walker after he has handed her the stack of cash intended for her sister] You died at Alcatraz, all right. Goodbye, Walker.


  • Brewster: Let me tell you something about corporations, Walker. This is a corporation. I'm an officer in a corporation. We deal in millions. We never see cash! I got about eleven dollars in my pocket.
  • Frederick Carter: I said nobody was supposed to go up there! He could have done without a girl for one night.


Brewster: You're a very bad man, Walker, a very destructive man! Why do you run around doing things like this?
Walker: I want my money. I want my $93,000.
Brewster: $93,000? You threaten a financial structure like this for $93,000? No, Walker, I don't believe you. What do you really want?
Walker: I - I really want my money.
Brewster: Well, I'm not going to give you any money and nobody else is. Don't you understand that?
Walker: Who runs things?
Brewster: Carter and I run things. I run things.
Walker: What about Fairfax? Will he pay me?
Brewster: Fairfax is a man who signs checks.
Walker: No, cash.
Brewster: Fairfax isn't going to give you anything. He's finished. Fairfax is dead. He just doesn't know it yet.
Walker: Somebody's got to pay.

Chris: Hey. What's my last name?
Walker: [pause] What's my first name?

Mal Reese: I needed all of it to pay you back.
Frederick Carter: So you took his share and his wife.

Walker: I heard you're running with Reese.
Chris: Well, you heard wrong.
Walker: Does he want you?
Chris: Sure he does.
Walker: Do you want him?
Chris: He makes my flesh crawl.
Walker: I want him.

Walker: How bad does he want you, Chris?
Chris: Oh, I don't know. Who knows.
Walker: Yeah, you know. How bad?
Chris: Pretty bad, I guess.
Walker: Bad enough to let you through into the Huntley?
Chris: Why should I?
Walker: Well, it's up to you.

Chris: Well, here I am.
Mal Reese: What made you change your mind?
Chris: It's a woman's privilege. All good things come to those who wait.
Mal Reese: Then I win first prize. Scotch?
Chris: Scotch is fine.

Walker: Where's his house?
Yost: This is it.
Walker: I said alone.
Yost: Take it easy. You'll last longer.

Mal Reese: [nude, except wrapped in a bed sheet] Let me get dressed!
Walker: I want you this way, Mal.

Stegman: She was the Trojan horse.
Frederick Carter: What'd you say?
Stegman: I said, she was the Trojan horse.
Frederick Carter: Trojan horse? You're a smart boy, Stegman.
