Johnny Quid: You see that pack of Virginia killing sticks on the end of the piano?

Pete: Yes.

Johnny Quid: All you need to know about life is retained in those four walls. You will notice that one of your personalities is seduced by the illusions of grandeur - the gold packet of king size with a regal insignia, an attractive implication towards grandeur and wealth, the subtle suggestion that cigarettes are indeed your royal and loyal friends, and that, Pete, is a lie.

Johnny Quid: Your other personality is trying to draw your attention to the flip side of the discussion, written in boring bold black and white, it's a statement that these neat little soldiers of death and in fact trying to kill you and that, Pete, is the truth.

Johnny Quid: Oh, beauty is a beguiling call to death and I'm addicted to the sweet pitch of its siren.

Johnny Quid: That that starts sweet ends bitter, and that which starts bitter ends sweet.

Johnny Quid: That is why you and i love the drugs and that is also why I cannot give that painting back. now please, pass me a light.

Pete: Oh you are something special, Mr johnny quid.
