[After Carter asks who's next] You think it's gonna make it easier to know, Carter? [Everyone looks at him] It's not. It's gonna make it fuckin' harder.

[yelling at Death] You tried to capitalize but I caught you, you fuck! Yeah, I can beat you. Not forever, but I've got this cabin rigged to beat you now!

We blow half a day in Paris, all because Browning had a bad fucking dream?

As far as I know, this shit can circle around and get us all again. But for right now, I'm the safest fucker in the world, because you're still NEXT.

Bludworth: In death, there are no accidents, no coincidences, no mishaps and no escapes.

It never occurs to us that it has any connection with the day already begun, or that death could arrive this same afternoon — this afternoon which is so certain, and which has every hour filled in advance.

Terry: I'm moving on, Carter. And if you want to waste your life beating the shit out of Alex every time you see him then! You can just drop fucking dead. [Gets hit by a bus, killing her]

Billy Hitchcock: [Wondering who is next to die] Please tell me I'm gonna get to see the Jets win the Super Bowl!

Billy Hitchcock: [Repeated Line] Carter, you dick!
