    • [sitting at the counter inside the Tarasco Bar]
    • Buscemi: Now, I wasn't interested in his drink. No, I was more interested in what he was carrying when he walked in. Some sort of a suitcase, kind of heavy. And he sat that thing on a stool beside him as if it were his girl.
    • Buscemi: Suddenly they got very interested in who you were. So, I laid the story down nice and thick.
    • [lying on the bed in his hotel room]

    • Buscemi: What happens when he's dead?
    • [lying on the bed in his hotel room]
    • El Mariachi: When Bucho's dead... it's over. He is the last one.
    • Buscemi: End of payback? An eye for an eye and all that crap? You finally gonna be satisfied?
    • El Mariachi: I think so.
    • Buscemi: I hope so. 'Cause, I don't have the stomach for this anymore.
    • El Mariachi: You never did.
    • [before leaving his hotel room]
    • Buscemi: Neither did you.
    • [right before a firefight]
    • El Mariachi: Back together again, huh?
    • Campa: Yeah.
    • [cracks neck]

    • El Mariachi: I'm looking for a man who calls himself Bucho. That's all. And you had to do it the hard way.

    • El Mariachi: Campa... Quino... They would destroy the city...
    • [talking to his henchmen]
    • Bucho: It's one thing if you can't find someone running around the city hiding any place he chooses. I can understand that. What I can't understand is how you let him get away when you knew where he was! Now you drive around town. You see someone you don't know, you shoot them. How hard is that, huh?
    • Shrug: Hey...
    • [shoots Shrug, then returns the gun to Right Arm]
    • Bucho: Now, how hard is that? It's that easy.
    • [takes gun from Right Arm]
    • Bucho: Look over there.
    • [the henchmen look in different directions, unsure of where "over there" is]
    • Bucho: I don't know him. Never seen him before.
    • [the henchmen part, revealing Shrug]
    • Bucho: Look, he has a gun!
    • [looks down at the gun tucked into his belt in dismay]
    • Bucho: Must be him!
    • [to El Mariachi, as they stare each other down]
