Last Man Standing (1996 film) Quotes

Bruce Willis as John Smith

  • (Bruce Willis) "For most of my life I made my own rules. You don't do any favors. You don't ask for any. Watch the percentages. But you can know the rules and still do the wrong thing. The only thing I knew for sure was this: Strozzi, Doyle, and every son of a bitch that worked for them -- they were all going to be better off dead."
  • (Bruce Willis) "What about Prohibition?"
  • (William Sanderson) "We don't pay too much attention to it here."
  • (Bruce Willis) "You tell Mr. Doyle, if he'd a hired smarter guys none of this woulda happened."
  • (Bruce Willis) "It's not your fault Giorgio's a halfwit Strozzi. You wanna die for a halfwit?"
  • (Bruce Willis) "After a while you stop hearing your bones break, your teeth rattle. You just concentrate on holding tight to that little part right at the center. The rest doesn't matter. They're gonna take the rest anyway."
  • (Bruce Willis) "It's a funny thing. No matter how low you sink there's still a right and wrong. You always end up choosing. You go one way so you can try to live with yourself. You go the other, you'd still be walkin' around, but you're dead and you don't even know it."
  • (Bruce Willis) "I'm surprised you aren't mad at me -- I thought you might hold it against me for killing 3 of your guys."
  • (David Patrick Kelly) "It's the only cure I know for being stupid."
  • (Bruce Willis) "The funny thing about people, one time out of a hundred they turn out better than you expect."
  • (Bruce Willis) "I can't say it all went exactly the way I'd planned, but I was right about one thing: they were all better off dead."

Alexandra Powers as Lucy Kolinski

  • (Alexandra Powers) "You try and keep it down up here, okay, my room is right underneath."
  • (Bruce Willis) "I'll try not to make too much noise when I'm jumpin' up and down on the bed"

Bruce Dern as Sheriff Ed Galt

  • (Bruce Dern) "If he sends Hickey after me, he's coming straight after you."
  • (Bruce Willis) "Yeah, Hickey. I've heard he's a real scary guy."
  • (Bruce Dern) "Let me tell you just how scary. It goes that when Hickey was ten years old, he took a butcher knife and cut his own father's throat, ear to ear. So they put him in an orphanage. Fifteen years old, he burned it to the ground."
  • (Bruce Dern) "You know something amigo? I think I just spotted a chink in your armor. When you go down -- it's going be over a skirt."

Ken Jenkins as Capt. Tom Pickett

  • (Ken Jenkins) "Things in this town are out of control. Two gangs is just one too many. I'm not an idealist. I know a lot of things that people do are awful low, but that's between them and God. Do you believe in God? I believe in God, son. But what I'm concerned with is keeping a lid on things, and what we got here in Jericho is just way out of hand, and Sheriff Galt, here, can't do much about it, right? Matter of fact, it might be fair to say that he's part of the problem, right? Now you been going back and forth, playing both sides according to Mr. Galt, here, making yourself a lot of money out of all this. Well, it's over, son. I'm coming back here in ten days, and I'm gonna bring about twenty rangers with me. I will tolerate one gang, because that is the nature of things. A certain amount of corruption is inevitable. But if I find two gangs here when I get back, then in a couple of hours there will be no gangs here. So it's simple. One gang quits and goes home. You boys work it out. I don't give a damn which one."
  • (Bruce Willis) "Just so long as one side leaves, or maybe one side loses."
  • (Ken Jenkins) "That's fine, too, son. Kill as many as you want. Just don't kill no innocent people around here. I wouldn't like that."
  • (Ken Jenkins) "I'm here about a murdered policeman, got himself killed the other side of the river in some crummy little Mexican town. A few locals killed, too, and a double-dealing Commandant named Ramirez. But the man I'm concerned about was an American on the border patrol. He had a family. Well liked by his brother officers. I guess he strayed a little bit in some departments, but he was an officer of the law, just the same."

R. D. Call as Jack McCool

  • (R. D. Call) "Mr. Doyle wants you to come work for us full time."
  • (Bruce Willis) "I'm not sure he can afford it."
  • (David Patrick Kelly) "Try me."
  • (Bruce Willis) "A thousand dollars."
  • (David Patrick Kelly) "A week -- or a day?"
  • (R. D. Call) "You sitting out in the open, might not be such a good idea for a fella that has as many enemies as you got."
  • (Bruce Willis) "I thought everybody liked me. I am such a nice guy."

Christopher Walken as Hickey
