'One for the Money' movie quotes include some of the best lines from this 2012 adaptation of Janet Evanovich's wildly popular 1994 novel of the same name. In 'One for the Money,' Katherine Heigl plays Plum, a bounty hunter who is actually pretty normal. She's no Dirty Harry but she's no dummy either. The Stephanie Plum character has appeared in multiple Evanovich books, including, most recently, 'Explosive Eighteen.' Quotes from 'One for the Money,' not surprisingly, include witty dialogue from Plum and other characters, including her grandmother, "Grandma Mazur," vice cop (and ex-flame) Joe Morelli and others.

Put the Gun Away

Mrs. Plum: "Stephanie started a new job!"
Stephanie Plum: "Yeah, I did. I just got a gun."
Mrs. Plum: "Whoa!" (Grandma Mazur checks out the gun and proceeds to shoot the chicken sitting on the dinner table)
Mrs. Plum: "Put the gun away, ma!"
Mr. Plum: She belongs in a home."
Grandma Mazur: "Shot that sucker in the gumpy..."

Mr. Plum (Luis Mustillo) certainly has a point, but something tells me he's vastly underestimating Grandma Mazur and her abilities. Look out, gumpys!
