Mike Waters: [First lines, mumbled to self, counting seconds, looking at pocket watch] 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10...

[Coughs]

Mike Waters: I always know where I am by the way that the road looks. Like I just know that I've been here before. I just know that I've been stuck here, like this one f**king time before, you know that? Yeah. There's not another road anywhere that looks like this road - I mean, exactly like this road. It's one kind of place. One of a kind... like someone's face...

[cracks neck]

Bob Pigeon: Scott. When you inherit your fortune, on your twenty-first birthday, let's see... how far away is this?

Scott Favor: One week away, Bob, just one more week.

Bob Pigeon: Let's not call ourselves robbers, but Diana's foresters. Gentlemen of the shade. Minions of the Moon. Men of good government.

Scott Favor: [under his breath] When I turn twenty-one, I don't want any more of this life. My mother and father will be surprised at the incredible change. It will impress them more when such a fuck-up like me turns good than if I had been a good son all along. All the past years I will think of as one big vacation. At least it wasn't as boring as schoolwork. All my bad behavior I'm going to throw away to pay my debt. I will change when everybody expects it the least.

Mike Waters: For some reason I'm forgetting a German guy named Hans.

Scott Favor: Well. You were sleeping.

Mike Waters: How much do you make off me while I'm sleeping?

Scott Favor: Just a ride, Mike. I don't make anything. What, you think that I sell your body while you are asleep?

Mike Waters: Yeah, it does. Well, you know. Normal. Like a mom and a dad and a dog, and shit like that. Normal. Normal.

Scott Favor: So, you didn't have a normal dog?

Mike Waters: No, I didn't have a dog.

Scott Favor: Didn't... or... didn't have a normal dad?

Mike Waters: Didn't have a dog or a normal dad anyway, yeah. That's alright. I don't feel sorry for myself. I mean, I feel like I'm... I feel like I'm... you know... well-adjusted.
