"I'm gonna have a smoke right now. You want a smoke? You don't smoke, do ya, right? What are you, one of those fitness freaks, huh? Go f*ck yourself." (The Departed)

"When you decide to be something, you can be it. That's what they don't tell you in the church. When I was your age they would say we can become cops, or criminals. Today, what I'm saying to you is this: when you're facing a loaded gun, what's the difference?" (The Departed)

Enough is enough! I've had it with these muthaf*ckin' snakes on this muthaf*ckin' plane!" (Snakes on a Plane)

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people. (V for Vendetta)

"Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V. (V for Vendetta)
