To Live and Die in L.A.

Eric 'Rick' Masters: A 19th Century Cameroon, yes? Your taste is in your ass!

[shoots Waxman in the face]

Eric 'Rick' Masters: Everybody knows Rick Masters won't go near a job without front money. You should also know that I never fucked a customer out of his front money. I've been coming to this gym three or four times a week for five years. I'm an easy man to find. My reputation speaks for itself. The fact is that if you can't come up with the front money you're not for real.

Eric 'Rick' Masters: First you rip me off, then you set up Carl, now you want to fuck my lady?

Max Waxman: Oh, man. She came on to me, man. I swear it.

Eric 'Rick' Masters: Oh, what a tragedy. I want my 600K.

Max Waxman: I didn't have anything to do with getting Cody set up...

Eric 'Rick' Masters: Do you know that your house is under surveillance? Do you know you're living like a fuckin' animal in the zoo?

Eric 'Rick' Masters: How you making it?

Carl Cody: Like every other swinging dick in this place makes it. Day by motherfucking day.

Eric 'Rick' Masters: I've got a friend in Palm Springs, Lenne Green. He owns the Oasis. Do you know him?

Richard Chance: I got a friend in Hollywood, Donald Duck. You know him?

Eric 'Rick' Masters: I want my paper, Jeff. I can't afford to have it circulating right now.

Jeff Rice: I told you I don't have it.

Eric 'Rick' Masters: Get it.

Eric 'Rick' Masters: [to Chance, who's posing as "Mr. Jessup"] Like your work!


Eric 'Rick' Masters: You broke your contract with me Jeff. Now, I don't know whether you're into it but you're gonna have to suck on this until you give me back my paper!

Eric 'Rick' Masters: You have my word you won't have to do the whole nickel.

Carl Cody: What does that mean?

Eric 'Rick' Masters: Grimes is the best lawyer in the state. It'll either be an appeal bond or a sentence reduction.

Carl Cody: And the check is in the mail, and I love you, and I promise not to come in your mouth...

Bob Grimes: I don't have a lot of time. I'm in the middle of a trial.

John Vukovich: What kind of trial?

Bob Grimes: It's a dope case. Client got busted smuggling fifty pounds of cocaine. I should be able to get him off, though. Seach warrant's weak.

John Vukovich: Weak?

Bob Grimes: Color of the house is listed as brown in the warrant, when in fact it's beige and yellow.

John Vukovich: You should be ashamed of yourself.

Bob Grimes: I don't make any apologies for being an attorney. If I didn't accept the case, somebody else would, without a doubt. Without a doubt.
