My pick quotes: Con air

Larkin: [tosses a folder onto a table] Here’s the jacket on Cameron Poe. His wife’s on the way here now. A U.S. Ranger, highly decorated. Did a litte hellraising when he was a kid, but nothing serious.
Duncan Malloy: Explain to me why any of this matters.
Larkin: Fact 1: we’ve got a plane up there filled with killers, rapists, and thieves and we’ve got this guy Cameron Poe: in on an involuntary manslaughter beef, non-gang affiliated. He’s a parolee hitching a ride home. Fact 2: Poe has a chance to get off the plane, doesn’t do it. Why? Fact 3: our guard Falzon said a convict named Cameron Poe planted Sims’s tape recorder on him.
Larkin: These are interesting facts. You do the math on this… and we got an ally on that plane.

Cyrus Grissom: Thanks Poe. You’ve proven to be a most useful mammal.
Cameron Poe: Many hands make light work. My daddy taught me that.
Cyrus Grissom: Ya know what my daddy taught me?
Cameron Poe: What’s that?
Cyrus Grissom: Nothing.
Cameron Poe: Self-educated man.

Pinball: What’s up, man. So, you Swamp Thing?
Swamp Thing: That’s right.
Pinball: Flyin’ the plane?
Swamp Thing: That’s right.
Pinball: It’s amazing the shit you white trash know.
Swamp Thing: That’s right.

Vince Larkin: “The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by observing its prisoners.” Dostevsky said that… after doin’ a little time.
Duncan Malloy: “Fuck you!” Cyrus Grissom said that after putting a bullet in my agent’s head, okay?

Cyrus Grissom: Where’s the plane, Francisco?
Francisco Cindino: I don’t know, have patience.
Cyrus Grissom: The last guy who told me to have patience, I burned him down and bagged his ashes.
