Billy Ray Valentine:
[watches Louis clean his shotgun] You know, you can't just go around and shoot people in the kneecaps with a double-barreled shotgun 'cause you pissed at 'em.



Louis Winthorpe III:
Why not?



Billy Ray Valentine:
'Cause it's called assault with a deadly weapon, you get 20 years for that shit.



Louis Winthorpe III:
Listen, do you have any better ideas?



Billy Ray Valentine:
Yeah. You know, it occurs to me that the best way you hurt rich people is by turning them into poor people.



Coleman:
You have to admit, sir, you didn't like it yourself a bit.

Pawnbroker:
Burnt my fingers, man.



Louis Winthorpe III:
I beg your pardon?



Pawnbroker:
Man, that watch is so hot, it's smokin'.



Louis Winthorpe III:
Hot? Do you mean to imply stolen?



Pawnbroker:
I'll give you 50 bucks for it.



Louis Winthorpe III:
Fifty bucks? No, no, no. This is a Rouchefoucauld. The thinnest water-resistant watch in the world. Singularly unique, sculptured in design, hand-crafted in Switzerland, and water resistant to three atmospheres. This is *the* sports watch of the '80s. Six thousand, nine hundred and fifty five dollars retail!



Pawnbroker:
You got a receipt?



Louis Winthorpe III:
Look, it tells time simultaneously in Monte Carlo, Beverly Hills, London, Paris, Rome, and Gstaad.



Pawnbroker:
In Philadelphia, it's worth 50 bucks.



Louis Winthorpe III:
Just give me the money.



Louis Winthorpe III:
[looking in display case] How much for the gun?

[offering Billy Ray a sip from his flask; they are both in Halloween costumes]



Coleman:
Would you like a sip of whiskey?



Billy Ray Valentine:
I do not drink, it is against my religion!



Coleman:
Religion is a good thing I say, taken in moderation.
