"St. Vincent" movie quotes follow the unlikely friendship between a young boy and a drunk old man. The comedy film was written and directed by Theodore Melfi. After positive buzz following its premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, "St. Vincent" opened in theaters on October 10, 2014.
In "St. Vincent," single mother Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) and her young son Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher) move to Brooklyn, NY, next door to a drunken, grouchy and overall unpersonable old man Vincent (Bill Murray). The broke Vincent, looking to earn a few bucks, offers to babysit Oliver after school, to which Maggie agrees.
But when Maggie learns that Vincent has been taking Oliver to bars, strip clubs and race tracks, she soon wonders if leaving her son with Vincent, and sometimes stripper Daka (Naomi Watts) was a good idea. But despite their differences and inability to fit in among their own peers, Vincent and Oliver find a unique friendship with one another, one that causes both of them to change in very positive ways."St. Vincent" is one of several great films in theaters in the fall of 2014 just like "The Judge," "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," "Gone Girl," "Men, Women & Children," "Left Behind," "The Equalizer," "Pride," "Good People," "The Boxtrolls," "This is Where I Leave You," "The Maze Runner," "A Walk Among the Tombstones," "Dolphin Tale 2," "No Good Deed," "The Skeleton Twins," and "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby."

Oliver: "Mowing Vin's lawn"
Maggie: "Hey, Vin!"
Vincent: "I was sleeping. Thanks for that."
Maggie: "All right, let's go. I'm going to make dinner. You can do homework."

Maggie: "Stop mowing, you're mowing dirt! Let's go!"
Vincent: "He's fed. The homework's checked. I've done my job. I'm taking a break."
Maggie: "Why is he mowing your dirt patch?"
Oliver: "Oh, yeah, he's paying me hourly."
Vincent: "I'm showing him how the world works. You work, you get paid, you drink."
Maggie: "Are you drinking alcohol?"
Vincent: "I honestly don't remember."22Should this be higher or lower?
