What's her name?

You heard of hand-models, right? Advertisements?
Walter Garber:
Right.

She was an ass-model... she did jeans and uh you know, magazines and shit. Anyway, it was fashion week in New York and uh... I took her to Iceland.

So, for five-hundred bucks they'll take you on a dog-sled ride on a glacier.
Walter Garber:
Dog-sled?
Ryder:
Yeah... and you know that whole saying that if you're not the lead dog, the view never changes?
Walter Garber:
Right, otherwise you're always looking at the asshole of the dog in front of you.

That'll be funny in a minute when I get to that part.

It's funny now.

[next scene]
And it's eight in the morning, we haven't been to bed yet... and we're tooling across this glacier and I got this hangover that's creeping up the back of my neck... and guess what I'm looking at?
Walter Garber:
You're obviously you're staring at... the ass of the dog in front of you.
Ryder:
You got it! So this dog... out of nowhere just lifts his hind-legs up and puts them in the, you know the harness there... and just takes a shit, while he's running on his front paws. So he's dumping and running, all at the same time... now that's multi-fucking-tasking if you ask me.
Walter Garber:
Get outta here, did it hit you?
Ryder:
Shit always hits you man.
[next scene]

Ryder:
I didn't know it at the time, but it was profound.
Walter Garber:
Profound?
Ryder:
Yeah.
Walter Garber:
Why? Uh, you lost me.
Ryder:
Well, you know uh... when I went to prison later on, what you called. Uh, I had trouble going to the toilet... you know, a privacy thing. And I... couldn't take a shit. I was scared shitless... literally. So, you know what I thought of?
Walter Garber:
You thought of the dog.
Ryder:
That's right... I thought of that dog. If it could do what it needed to do... so could I. It saved my fucking live.
Walter Garber:
Wow, that is profound.
 
Walter Garber:
You got it, you got it... any other demands?
Ryder:
Yeah, well no fucking pizza delivery man.
Walter Garber:
No, I mean are you guys like... are you terrorists?
Ryder:
Do I sound like a terrorist? Do I terrorize you?
Walter Garber:
Actually you don't, but not that I've ever talked to one. So, so... what, this is just about money?
Ryder:
Oh, is there anything else?
Walter Garber:
There's not dying.
Ryder:
Yeah, well you know you live, you die, you either go with the current or you fight it. We all end up at the same place.
Walter Garber:
Where's that, Jersey?
Ryder:
Yeah, you watch it I was born there man.
Walter Garber:
You know I'm just saying, you know you're up in a motorman's cab... so that means you know you're on the radio, which means that you're an easy target. You gotta know the drill.
Ryder:
Yeah, I know that soon I won't be alone and If I'm the first to get shot... I'm the first of many to get shot.
Walter Garber:
That's correct, but then you'd still be dead.
Ryder:
Dead is an improvement on a lot of things I can think of, buddy boy.
Supervisor:
Sounds like he slept with my ex.
 
Ryder:
Now you understand commodities, don't you? You know, pork bellies, gold, light crude.
Walter Garber:
Listen. No disrespect, but maybe I'm not the guy you should be talking to.
Ryder:
Oh no, you are exactly the guy I wanna talk to. Now I want you to look at the ticker and I want you to tell me what is the going rate for a New York City hostage today. You think a million dollars is too much? I do. I think it's corny. Now get your calculator out. You got one?
Ryder:
[Garber hesitates]
Do you have a calculator?
Walter Garber:
Yeah, we got one. I got one.
Ryder:
Okay, good. Now add this up. You got $526,315.79. That's $526,315.79 Now times that by 19. What do you get?
Walter Garber:
[looks at calculator]
That's $10 million?
Ryder:
What do you get?
Walter Garber:
That comes out to $10 million plus 1 cent.
Ryder:
Oh that is a deal. Now I want you to call the mayor and tell him the price. And then you tell him I want it in 100,000 $100 dollar bills. You got that?
Walter Garber:
Okay I got that. What about the 1 cent?
Ryder:
Well you keep that 1 cent. It's your broker fee.
 
Ryder:
Well, I got faith in you man... but I gotta ask you one question. You know that thing when you told your wife about the 35K, how did she react?
Walter Garber:
Look, we gotta talk about...
Ryder:
No, don't be sensitive.
Walter Garber:
I'm not being sensitive.
Ryder:
Well, did she freak out or what?
Walter Garber:
She... wasn't happy, but she understood.
Ryder:
Well, that's love right?
Walter Garber:
No, that's marriage... that's another thing.
 
Ryder:
Put Garber on the line!
Camonetti:
To be honest, Mr. Garber has gone home.
Ryder:
Put Garber on the fucking line or I'll kill the motorman!
Camonetti:
I guarantee you, Mr. Ryder, that I am the best person for you to be talking to right now. Just give me a moment and I'll explain why.
Ryder:
[to Jerry]
You were always going to be the first one to go.
[shoots Jerry several times]

Ryder:
Mr. Camonetti, you have 60 fucking seconds before I kill another, okay?
 
Ryder:
Ok... now somebody else has to die. Two people, maybe all of us! Did you hear me?
Walter Garber:
I heard you, but you gotta understand that the circumstances they're different now for you. You gotta rethink this, you... you gotta adapt.
Ryder:
No, I gave you instructions and you know the consequences.
Walter Garber:
I mean don't you have a plan B?
Ryder:
No, plan B is enforcing plan A... and the minute you stop believing me mother fucker, that's it!
 
Ryder:
Do you know what I'm looking at? Do you know what I'm looking at?
Walter Garber:
No, I do not.
Ryder:
Ok, well first there's my gun... and at the end of my gun, what's your name man?
George:
George, everyone calls me Geo.
Ryder:
George, his friends call him Geo. He's got this kinda eighties skateboard thing going on... he makes it work, but it's not gonna look to good in his casket.
 
Ryder:
You know we all owe God a debt... and I'm a man who pays his debts. Are you a man who pays his debts?
Walter Garber:
Yeah, yeah, sure... TV, cable, uh and my mortgage. That's a little like dying once a month.
Ryder:
Oh, you're married... you're a married man?
Walter Garber:
Maybe.
Ryder:
Oh, no... you're married, man. Married men have mortgages.
 
Ryder:
Seven! One, two, three, four, five, six, seven!
[points to the mother]

Ryder:
Lucky lady! Come on, up. Up! Up!
Wallace:
Fuck no!
[stands between Ryder and the mother]

Wallace:
Come on.
Mom:
Wait!
[tries to stop Wallace]

Wallace:
It's the only plan I got. Come on, motherfucker!
Ryder:
[looks to the mother]
That's your fault.
 
Ryder:
Garber! When you put your socks on this morning, did you ever think...? Turn around, let them frisk you. I was worried about you... I thought maybe you'd get lost but then I remembered you were a motorman, so... these tunnels don't change much, do they?
Walter Garber:
Just the people in 'em.
 
Walter Garber:
Well, I can tell you that you are dealing with one of the old-time bureaucracy, I know that. I mean, it takes time.
Ryder:
Well you'd better fix the bureaucracy. Because when the time comes, these motherfuckers, these out there, are gonna go real quick.
 
Camonetti:
Listen, don't let this guy bring you to his reality. 'Cause that's what he wants to do... he hurts you, you're gonna get angry. He's got the advantage, understand?
Walter Garber:
Yeah.
Camonetti:
Just deflect.

Myself... was easier than it looked.
Police Captain Hill:
Yeah... fucking yourself always is.
 
Ryder:
I talked to God.
Walter Garber:
That's good, what did he say?
Ryder:
He said I should trust in Him, all others pay cash. How soon can you get it down here?
 
Ryder:
This make you feel better, Garber? That make everything okay now?
Walter Garber:
No, but it's a start.
 
Ryder:
[describing Garber's voice]
He's got a sexy voice though, man. He'd be my bitch in prison.
 
Ryder:
[Repeated line]
I don't know, Garber, why don't you tell me and then we'll both know.

Life is simple now. They just have to do what I say.
