Death Wish (1974)
- We want money, mother, now get it!
- Goddamn rich cunt! I KILL RICH CUNTS!
- Jack Toby: We gotta let the cops handle this, Dad.
- Paul Kersey: Yeah? Well, what if the cops can't handle this?
- Sam Kreutzer: You know, decent people are going to have to work here and live somewhere else.
- Paul Kersey: By "decent people," you mean people who can afford to live somewhere else.
- Sam Kreutzer: Oh Christ, you are such a bleeding-heart liberal, Paul.
- Paul Kersey: My heart bleeds a little for the underprivileged, yes.
- Sam Kreutzer: The underprivileged are beating our goddamned brains out. You know what I say? Stick them in concentration camps, that's what I say.
- Paul Kersey: You've got a prime figure. You really have, you know.
- Joanna Kersey: That's a euphemism for fat.
- Paul Kersey: Any chance of catching these men?
- Lt. Briggs: There's a chance, sure.
- Paul Kersey: Just a chance?
- Lt. Briggs: I'd be less than honest if I gave you more hope, Mr. Kersey. In the city, that's the way it is.
- Ames Jainchill: You're probably one of them knee-jerk liberals that thinks us gun boys would shoot our guns because it's an extension of our penises.
- Paul Kersey: Never thought about it that way. It could be true.
- Ames Jainchill: Well, maybe it is. But this is gun country.
- Frank Ochoa: We want you to get out of New York... Permanently.
- Paul Kersey: Inspector... By sundown?
- Paul Kersey: Nothing to do but cut and run, huh? What else? What about the old American social custom of self-defense? If the police don't defense us, maybe we ought to do it ourselves.
- Jack Toby: We're not pioneers anymore, Dad.
- Paul Kersey: What are we, Jack?
- Jack Toby: What do you mean?
- Paul Kersey: I mean, if we're not pioneers, what have we become? What do you call people who, when they're faced with a condition or fear, do nothing about it, they just run and hide?
- Jack Toby: Civilized?
- Paul Kersey: No.
- Sam Kreutzer: I'll bet muggings are down, and they're afraid to tell us.
- Paul Kersey: There's only one way to find out. Take a walk on Columbus Avenue tonight.
