Dan Dark: There are things in that book, doc, that are reaching out to grab me by the throat.

Dan Dark: When you're dealing with the devil praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.
Nicola: ...the plants are all dead.
Dan Dark: Good. I hope they suffered.
Second Hood: I'm sick of standing around here like a coupla dummies. Are we feds or aren't we?
First Hood: No. We're just a coupla hoods.
