Dorothy: Well, I - I think that it - it wasn't enough to just want to see Uncle Henry and Auntie Em - and it's that - if I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with! Is that right?

Hill: God made sunsets full of color and God made race horses that run in a flash. God made the orange, the apple and strawberries, but God's greatest creation is pussy. I don't mean to be crude or nothing but... you can have all the sunsets, horses and fruit there is, just give me all the pussy in the world. Fuck, I don't need all the pussy, just one a day. Every day.

Rebadow: No, it's more like a strobe. A little too flashy, a little cheesy for my taste.

Hill: For her.

Groves: No, no, wait. I've been reading a lot since I got here about different faiths and yours is pretty nifty.
Mukada: Catholicism is nifty?
Groves: You have that whole mystical transabstentiation bit going.
Mukada: That's right. The Eucharist becomes the body of Christ.

Mukada: That's right.
Groves: Now how can I not get behind a religion like that?

Hill: Clememcy. Thats a fancy word for mercy. The Governor can commute a death sentence. He has the power to pick up the phone and just say No. But to me, the only time the Governor shows clemency is when he don't make that call. Life in prison without parole is a shitload worse than death. Death is parole. Death is mercy

Nino: The only difference between you and him, Joey, is he knows the exact date he'll die!
Schillinger: The state's gonna let Keane pick his method of execution. Me, I'd pick hanging.

Schillinger: That's for pussies.
Groves: They say lethal injection causes no pain. How do they know? Did someone come back from the dead and say they didn't feel anything?
