Simple Men Quotes

Jeffrey Howard as Ned

  • (Jeffrey Howard) "Nothing like a machine to make a man feel insignificant."
  • (Jeffrey Howard) "Listen, Dennis. Let me tell you something about the law. The law is just a contract. A contract between the rich people who own everything, and the poor people who want to take it away. And the contract says, if you break the law and get away with it fine. But if you break the rules and get caught you got to play by the rules and pay the price. It's no big moral thing, you don't need ideology to knock off a liquor store."
