    • Mickey Pearson: There's only one rule in the jungle: when the lion's hungry, he eats!
    • Raymond: You're wrong, Fletcher. Micky doesn't work like that.
    • Coach: Shut the Phuc...
    • [Watching the video of Big Dave and the pig]
    • Raymond: You really can't unsee it once you've seen it.
    • Dry Eye: The young succeed the old!
    • [as Mickey walks into the bar]
    • Mickey Pearson: Bobby.
    • Barman: Boss?
    • Mickey Pearson: I'll have a pint and a pickled egg.
    • Barman: Coming straigt up.
    • Rosalind Pearson: He's a fox, and foxes have a predictable nature. Trust this Jew about that Jew. If you let him in the henhouse, you can expect blood and feathers everywhere.
    • Matthew: How does anyone grow fifty tons of super skunk without letting anyone else know how they do it?
    • Mickey Pearson: I'm flattered to hear that from you, Matthew. I imagine that big brain of yours is sweating a stream of tears just trying to figure it out.
    • Matthew: Brilliance should be acknowledged
    • Mickey Pearson: I've gone to great lengths to make my operation as invisible as possible, Matthew. If you were standing on my bush, you wouldn't know it. As a matter of fact, you are standing on my bush.
    • Dry Eye: A gentleman's quote is a gentleman's word.
    • Fletcher: I think the time has come for me to introduce you to our queen. A Cockney Cleopatra to Mickey's cowboy Caesar. The only weak link, in his otherwise impregnable armor, is his devotion, his passion, some would say his obsession, with his beauteous lady wife.
    • Mickey Pearson: I like middle age. I like gentrification, private schools, fine wines, and a spoonful of caviar to help my medicine go down. But most importantly, I'm looking forward to spending more time with you.
    • Rosalind Pearson: Of course you are.
    • Mickey Pearson: Making a splash with the gentry.
    • Matthew: Oh, I like to make a splash whenever possible.
    • Mickey Pearson: Well, you also seem to understand the significance of a proper attire.
    • Matthew: Indeed I do. I believe a sense of ownership is vital in every aspect of life, perhaps never more so than when it comes to wardrobe. For every look there is a season, and for every season a strategy.
    • [voice over]
    • Fletcher: Now starts the alpha dance. They're not really talking about clothes, Raymond. Oh, f**king no. They're like a pair of old doggies sniffing round one another's intellectual a**holes. It's a good old-fashioned C**k-off, Raymond.
    • Fletcher: He wants to ruin him, but I am here to do you a favor. And it's not like you're not getting something for your money. You could even turn that script into a feature film, Raymond. We could make it together. We could be partners. I have learned off you lot. You got to look after number one, and now it's my turn. The sun is not going up for me, Ray. It's going down.
    • Mickey Pearson: It's the new gold rush. This is the thin end of a very fat wedge, sir.
    • Matthew: If it's such a fat wedge, why don't you keep it?
    • Mickey Pearson: You see, I've developed a reputation as a man who came up the hard way. You could say that there's blood on these pretty white hands. But in the new business, once legal and under the jurisdiction of the respectable umbrella of ministerial legitimacy, an enterprise like this will need a face with a clean past, which sadly I do not possess. Retirement doesn't sound so bad. Long walks in the countryside, pruning roses with my better half, raising some cubs. I've earned it.
    • Ray: You're wrong, Fletcher. That's not how Michael works.
    • Fletcher: Yeah, I know. I know. I was just having a bit of fun. Every movie needs a bit of action, doesn't it? And it's not like Michael doesn't have a reputation.
    • Ray: Had a reputation. He's been gentrified.
    • Mickey Pearson: No sooner do I entertain Matthew's offer to buy me out, and reject Dry Eye's offer, does one of my farms get raided.
    • Rosalind Pearson: First time ever.
    • Mickey Pearson: Doesn't feel like a coincidence, does it?
    • Rosalind Pearson: It isn't. There's fuckery afoot.
    • Mickey Pearson: How did they find it?
    • Ray: I don't know. I'm making inquiries.
    • Dry Eye: Ask no questions, hear no lies.
    • Michael Pearson: If you wish to be The King of the jungle, it's not enough to act like a king. You must be The King. And there can be no doubt. Because doubt causes chaos and one's own demise.
    • Michael Pearson: Any chance?
    • Michael Pearson: Fucks sake, Ray.
    • Michael Pearson: You need to invest in some parachutes.
    • Michael Pearson: There's a pattern emerging here.
    • Michael Pearson: No sooner do I entertain Matthew's offer to buy me out and reject Dry Eye's offer does one of my farms get raided.
    • Rosalind Pearson: First time ever.
    • Michael Pearson: Doesn't feel like a coincidence, does it?
    • Rosalind Pearson: It isn't. There's fuckery afoot.
    • [Fletcher puts a cigar in his mouth]
    • Ray: If you're thinking of smoking that in here... don't.
    • Fletcher: I find that confusing. Do you mean don't smoke or don't think?
    • [Clicks lighter and Ray jumps out of his seat]
    • Fletcher: Oh...
    • [Ray motions towards Fletcher]
    • Fletcher: Oh, all right, all right, it's going out!
