"Seven Psychopaths" movie quotes detail what happens when one group of psychopaths kidnap the dog of another psychopath. The ensemble comedy film, written, directed and produced by Martin McDonagh, earned the People's Choice Award during Midnight Madness at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival prior to its October 12, 2012, release in the United States.

In "Seven Psychopaths," Marty (Colin Farrell) plays an uninspired writer struggling to finish a screenplay, which is interestingly enough also titled "Seven Psychopaths." Hoping to break Marty out of his funk and give him something really exciting to write about, Billy (Sam Rockwell) brings Marty into the highly lucrative and usually nonviolent world of pet kidnapping. It's a simple business, they kidnap pets then return the pets to the owners in exchange for big bucks. No one is hurt, the owners are relieved to have their pets back and the kidnappers make off with the cash.

Everything is going well however until Billy kidnaps a cute little shih tzu named Bonny. Bonny is no ordinary dog in that his owner, Charlie Costello (Woody Harrelson), is a psychopath himself. When Charlie hears of the kidnapping, all hell breaks loose and it's one psychopath after another to bring back the beloved Bonny. Christopher Walken, Abbie Cornish, Olga Kurylenko, Tom Waits and Gabourey Sidibe co-star in the film.

Paulo: "Put your hands up."
Hans: "No"
Paulo: "What?"
Hans: "I said no."
Paulo: "Why not?"
Hans: "I don't want to."
Paulo: "But I've got a gun."
Hans: "I don't care."
Paulo: "That doesn't make any sense."
Hans: "Too bad"

What's the first sign that you might be dealing with a psychopath? How about when you're pointing a gun to them and they are arguing with out about how they don't want to put their hands up?

Eye for an Eye

Hans: "As Ghandi said..."
Billy: "Oh, you too? If it ain't Ghandi, Jesus christ!"
Hans: "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind. I believe that whole heartedly."
Billy: "No it doesn't. There'll be one guy left with one eye. How's the last blind guy going to take out the eye of the last guy left whose still got one eye left. All that guy has to do is run away and hide behind a bush. Ghandi was wrong. It's just that nobody's got the balls to come out and say it."

While Ghandi was undoubtably making a wider statement, Billy kind of does have a point here.

Billy: "You know, Marty, the way you're feeling today, all depressed and alcoholic, you know what you should do? Put it into your writing, man. Use it! Bad idea?"
Marty: "Thanks buddy. That's what I'll do."
Billy: "Yeah, right! Hey, who's this chump? Hey, are you waiting for somebody, old guy?"
Zachariah: "Are you Billy Bickle?"
Billy: "Uh, no"
Zachariah: "Well my name is Zachariah Rigby. I left a message on Billy's telephone in answer to the advertisement."
Billy: "Were you screaming about eating my heart off a tray then sh****** on it?"
Zachariah: "No, no, I wouldn't do that."
Billy: "Well I tell ya, Zachariah, if you sound like a nut I probably just deleted you."
Zachariah: "I don't think I sound like a nut."
Billy: "Okay, you seem normal. Come on in. We gotta get this dog off the street cause it's kidnapped from a maniac."
Zachariah: "Dandy"

Yes, Billy, someone waiting on your front steps, stroking a bunny is surely normal, not like the nut who left a disturbing telephone message in precisely the same voice.

Billy: "What happened?!"
Hans: "Some punks jumped us. They said they were looking for a little shih tzu. Then some other punks killed those punks."
Billy: "Marty, are you OK?"
Marty: "I just didn't need this today."
Hans: "He's OK. It's their blood. It's his puke."
Billy: "You want to go to the bathroom and clean some of the blood and puke off of you?"
Marty: "Yeah"
Billy: "Marty's my writer friend I was telling you about."
Hans: "Well I can smell the booze. Where'd you get this little shih tzu, Billy?"
Billy: "Do you think she's the one that they're after?"
Hans: "I think there's a strong possibility, Billy."

Regardless of how they never connected the dots before, Billy, Hans and Marty debrief after Hans and Marty were attacked by punks who were looking for a little shih tzu, the same breed of dog that Billy just happened to get.
