Earn A Living

Ricky: You stupid, f*ckin' cunt. You, Williamson, I'm talking to you sh*thead. You just cost me $6,000. $6,000 and one Cadillac. That's right. What're you gonna do about it? What are you gonna do about it, *sshole? You're f*ckin' sh*t. Where did you learn your trade, you stupid f*ckin' cunt, you idiot? Who ever told you that you could work with men?
Detective: Could I, uh-
Ricky: Oh, I gonna have your job, sh*thead. I'm goin' downtown, I'm gonna talk to Mitch and Murray. I'm goin' to Limpkin. I don't care whose nephew you are, who you know, whose dick you're suckin' on, you're goin' out. I swear to you, you're goin'-

We Worry Anyway

Ricky: All train compartments smell vaguely of sh*t. It gets so you don't mind it. That's the worse thing that I can confess. You know how long it took me to get there? A long time. When you die, you're gonna regret the things you don't do. You think you're queer? I'm gonna tell you somethin': we're all queer. You think you're a thief? So what? You get befuddled by a middle-class morality? Get shut of it. Shut it out. You cheat on your wife? You did it, live with it. F*ck little girls? So be it. There's an absolute morality? Maybe. And then what? If you think there is, go ahead, be that thing. Bad people go to hell? I don't think so. You think that? Act that way. A hell exists on Earth? Yes. I won't live in it. That's me. Did you ever take a dump - made you feel like you'd just slept for twelve hours?
James Lingk: That I...
Ricky: Yes?
James Lingk: I don't know.
Roma: Or piss? Great meals fade in reflection. Everything else gains. You know why? 'Cause it's only food. This sh*t we put on us keeps us going. It's only food. The great f*cks you may have had, what do you remember about 'em?
James Lingk: What do I remember?
Ricky: Yeah. I don't know. I'm sayin' what it is. It's-It's probably not the orgasm. Some broad's forearm on your neck, something her eyes did, there was this sound she made. Or it's me in the uh-I'm tellin' you, I'm in bed, the next day, she brought me café au lait, gives me a cigarette. My balls feel like concrete. Hey. What I'm saying what is our life? Our life is lookin' forward, or it's lookin' back. That's it. That's our life. Where's the moment? And what is it we're so afraid of?
James Lingk: Loss.
Ricky: What else? The bank closes. You get sick. My wife died on a plane. The stock market collapsed. What if these things happen? None of 'em. We worry anyway. Why?

Three Leads

John: I'm giving you three leads …
Ricky: Three? No, I count two.
John: There's three leads there.
Ricky: "Patel"? F*ck you. F*cking Shiva handed this guy a million dollars, told him "Sign the deal!", he wouldn't sign. And the god Vishnu too, into the bargain. F*ck you, John! You know your business, I know mine. Your business is being an *sshole. I find out whose f*cking cousin you are, I'm going to go to him and figure out a way to have your *ss – f*ck you! I'm waiting for the new leads.
