“Antonio Montana. And you? What you call yourself? In school. And my father, he was from the United States. Just like you, you know? He was a Yankee. He used to take me a lot to the movies. I learned. I watched the guys like Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney. They teach me to talk. I like those guys. I always know one day I’m coming here, United States. He dead. He die. Sometime. Somewhere. She dead, too. You know, things. I was this, that. Construction business. I work a lot with my hands. I was in the army. Nobody. Everybody’s dead. Me? Jail? No way, no. Oh, yeah. On the boat coming over. What is wrong with this guy? He kidding me or what? Okay. No. Fuck, no. Never, man. No.” — Tony Montana

“How am I gonna get a scar like that eating pussy? This was when I was a kid, you know? You should see the other kid. You can’t recognize him. What? That’s nothing. That’s from my sweetheart. Okay, you got me. I was in the can one time. For buying dollars. Big deal. That’s true. It was a Canadian tourist. So I fuck up! Let me talk to this guy. Please! Let me talk to him a minute.” — Tony Montana

“You a Communist? Huh? How’d you like it? They tell you always what to do, what to think, what to feel. Do you want to be like a sheep? Like all those other people? You wanna work 8, fucking 10 hours? You own nothing, you got nothing! Do you want a chivato on every corner, watching everything you do? Everything you say, man? You know I eat octopus three times a day? I got fucking octopus coming out of my ears. I got fucking Russian shoes, my feet’s coming through. How’d you like that? You want me to stay there and do nothing? I’m no fucking criminal, man. I’m no puta or thief. I’m Tony Montana, a political prisoner from Cuba. I want my fucking human rights, now! Like President Jimmy Carter says. Okay? You know something? You can send me anywhere. Here, there, this that. It don’t matter. There’s nothing you can do to me that Castro hasn’t already done…” — Tony Montana

“So? What’d you tell them? Sanitation? I told you to tell them you was in a sanitarium, not sanitation. Sanitarium. Yeah. No, I told you to say you had TB and you was in a sanitarium. And you was cured. You should’ve kept your mouth shut. They’d think you was a horse and let you out.” — Tony Montana

“So close, man. Come on. I got better things to do. Sure. What you got, man? What we gotta do? Go to Cuba and hit the beard? You’re kidding. You’re not kidding. Rebenga? I know that name. He’s political. It’s ugly, man. You tell your guys in Miami, your friend, it’d be a pleasure. I’d kill a Communist for fun, but for a green card, I gonna carve him up real nice.” — Tony Montana

“Rebenga. From a friend you fucked!” — Tony Montana

“That face. That’s nice.” — Tony Montana

“Your big shot friend better come up with something soon. I didn’t come to the U.S. to break my fucking back. Fucking thing!” — Tony Montana

“Look at that punk with her. What’s the got that I don’t have. Look at this. Fucking onions. They ought to be picking gold from the street. Oh, God, I can feel it.” — Tony Montana

“You gotta be kidding. 500? Who do you think we are, baggage handlers? The going rate on a boat is 1,000 a night. You know that. What I did for you in Freedom Town, what was that? That Rebenga hit was a game of dominoes? Shut up! Take it easy. Then why didn’t you? Don’t call me no fucking dishwasher, or I’ll kick your monkey ass. You kidding me or what? That’s no problem. I’m scared. Don’t worry. You worry too much. You’ll have a heart attack. You act like that guy’s doing you a favor or something. What does it matter? I don’t like fucking Colombians, okay? Wash them yourself. I retire! I gotta look at after my investment!” — Tony Montana

“Move the fucking car. We’re at a stop sign. The money stays in the trunk till I come out. You got it? Me, nobody else. Okay. I’m not out in 15 minutes, something’s wrong. Okay? Room 9. You ready?” — Tony Montana

“Que pasa, man? Okay. You mind leaving the door open? So my brother-in-law sees everything’s okay? Marta, hello. And I am Tony. So, Omar says you’re okay. Okay. You got the stuff? I don’t have the money either, man. I have it close by, too. No, not in the car, man. How about you? Where you have your stuff? Okay. You want me to come in? We start over again? What the fuck difference does it make where I’m from? You want to get to know then why don’t you start doing business with me and quit fucking around, Hector. Okay? What’s the story?” — Tony Montana

“You know, Frog Face, you just fucked yourself. You steal from me, you’re dead. Why don’t you try sticking your head up your ass? See if it fits. Fuck you!” — Tony Montana

“You okay? Okay, take him out of here, quick! Chi Chi! Get the yeyo. Your turn. I kill you! Die! Hurry up! Get in! Come on. Let’s go! Close the door!” — Tony Montana

“Bunch of cowboys. Somebody fucked up. You do that, Omar. You do that. Yeah. And I got the yeyo. Yeah, right. Fuck you. I’m taking it to Lopez myself. Not you, me.” — Tony Montana

“Nice fucking guy. Mr. Lopez. It’s a real pleasure. Okay, Frank. How are you? Manny Ribera. He caught one on the job. Well, Omar’s okay. You don’t have to mention that. That was fun. Damn right. Sometimes it’s fun. Gin is fine. Want some? Two gins. Here’s the stuff. Two keys. It cost my friend Angel his life. Here’s the money. My gift to you. I hope I have that problem someday. Gotta get her in between. That’s the best time. I could eat a horse. I’ll eat it.” — Tony Montana

“No, Frank, you tell me. What is a chazer? That’s pretty good. That’s good, Frank. Like you say, man. That sounds like fun to me, Frank. You want a cigar? What? You want me to dance?” — Tony Montana

“What’s your name? What’s your name? Elvira what? What? Hancock? Sounds like a bird. Hancock. Flying around. Where you from? What? Baltimore? Where’s that? I’m just trying to be friendly. Banana boat? Hold it. You got the wrong guy. I didn’t come off no banana boat. You’re thinking of someone else, maybe. What you talking crazy for? I’m a political refugee here. So take it easy. Don’t talk crazy. What is your problem, baby? You’re good-looking. You got a beautiful body, beautiful legs, a beautiful face, all these guys in love with you. Only you got a look in your eye like you haven’t been fucked in a year! Now you’re talking to me, baby. That I like. Keep it coming. Not yet, but you gotta give me some time.” — Tony Montana

“That chick he’s with… …she likes me. I know. The eyes. chico. They never lie. Serious? What do you think? Fuck you, man. The boss’s lady. That guy’s soft. Look in his face. The booze and concha tell him what to do. I’d like to forget that. You remember. You be happy. Me, I want what’s coming to me. The world, chico, and everything in it.” — Tony Montana

“This is paradise. This is paradise, I’m telling you. This town’s like a great big pussy just waiting to get fucked. I should’ve come here 10 years ago. I’d have been a millionaire by this time. By this time, I’d have had my own boat, my own car, my own golf course. That sounds completely crazy to me. Want to have some ice cream with my friend and me? Look at that. That’s right. Girls like ice cream. What the fuck was that? What you just did? That’s disgusting. Look at that fucking thing. You look like a lizard. Like a bug coming out of your mouth. They know what? You think you can do it with her? You want to try it with her? I’m looking at you. Go ahead. You won’t do it. I’m with you, man. Go ahead, Romeo! Do your thing! Romeo! You want to see something funny? Take a look over there. See that man? Watch that guy. I gotta sit down here. I gotta watch my friend. He gonna stick his tongue out to that girl. Oh, look at that. You see what happened to him? She’s too big for you. What I try to tell you? What I try to tell you?” — Tony Montana

“This country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women. That’s why you gotta make your own moves.” — Tony Montana

“Frank got held up at the golf course. He told me to pick you up. He said he’d meet us at the track later. He said to bet on Ice Cream in the first, by the way. What you talking about? That’s a Cadillac. Oh, come on. It’s got a few years, but it’s a cream puff.” — Tony Montana

“So, you like this better? It’s like one of them tigers from India. You’re gonna like that tiger, man. Maybe. Some lady tiger. How much? That all? He’s a funny guy. Come here, Manny. Bulletproof this, okay? And this here and here. And the windows. Get me a phone with a scrambler. And a radio with scanners to pick up flying saucers, stuff like that. Oh. In case I get caught in a swamp. That’s a good idea. Get out of my way, lady! I’m trying to drive here! We got an hour. You hungry? Well, that figures. Check it out, Manny, okay? And pay the guy. And you take a taxi. Meet me at the track, okay? Good doing business with you. Oh, God, man! I wouldn’t buy the car if you didn’t like it. Oh, yeah. You know who?” — Tony Montana

“I like Frank, you know? Only I like you better. You got some for me? Okay. You wanna play that way with me, I play with you. Would you kiss me if I wear the hat? Okay.” — Tony Montana

“Mama? Gina. You’re beautiful. I didn’t… Mama, look at those eyes, huh. Look at that. She looks like me. You know the last time I saw you, you was like that. You looked like a little boy. Now look at you. I got something for you. It’s no big deal. You think they’d keep a guy like me down? Look, open that up. Open it. I think so. It’s nothing much, you know, nothing. See what’s written on the back? Always.” — Tony Montana

“Surprise! All that’s over, starting today. My kid sister don’t have to work in no beauty parlor, and Mama, she don’t have to sew in no factory. Your son made it, Mama. He’s a success. That’s why I didn’t come around before. I want you to see what a good boy I’ve been. Here’s $1,000. For you, Mama.” — Tony Montana

“I didn’t kill nobody, Mama. No. No! Things are different now. I’m working with an anti-Castro group. I’m an organizer now. I get a lot of political contributions. You don’t know what you’re saying. Okay. Okay, Mama. Forget Papa. We never had one. The Communists, they’re always trying to tell you what to do. I know. I know. Come on. I want you to take this. You need this. Take that. You don’t tell her anything. Don’t tell her I gave it to you, but give her some from time to time. And listen, you go out yourself. Go ahead. Go out, do some things. Have some fun. You gotta get some fun out of life. You gonna beat yourself to death at 19? A pussycat like you? Come here. I’ll talk to you again. Put that money away. Don’t let her see it. I’ll talk to you. Okay. Let’s go. Hey! Stay away from her. You hear? She’s not for you.” — Tony Montana

“He would like to come, but with his trial coming up, it’s hard to leave the country. Something like that. You got good stuff here. Class-A shit.” — Tony Montana

“That means we have to go to war with them. Why don’t we split the risk? You guarantee your delivery, say, as far as Panama, we take it from there. 13.5? What, are you nuts? 13.5? We still got to take that shit to Florida. Do you know what that’s like these days? You got the Navy everywhere. You got frogmen. You get EC2s with the satellite-tracking shit. You got the fucking Bell 209 assault choppers up the ass. We’re losing one out of every nine loads. That’s no duckwalk anymore, let me tell you. Forget about 13.5.” — Tony Montana

“Don’t worry about it. Take it easy. Fuck you. How’s that? Fuck you. Don’t worry about it. Shut the fuck up. Better than your front, let me tell you. That’s easier to watch.” — Tony Montana

“Panama. You’re looking for a partner, right? Let the man finish, okay? Let him propose a proposition, then we can talk some more. Frank is gonna love it. Good talking to you. No, that’s okay. You tell Frank I’m keeping this guy on ice for him.” — Tony Montana

“I have to hand it to you, Mr. Sosa. You got everything a man could want. What do you mean by that, Mr. Sosa? Hey, Sosa. Let’s get this straight now. I’ve never fucked anybody over who didn’t have it coming. You got that? All I have in this world is my balls and my word. I don’t break them for no one, you understand? That piece of shit up there, I never liked him, I never trusted him. For all I know, he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed. But that’s history. I’m here, he’s not. You want to go on with me, say it. You don’t, then you make a move.” — Tony Montana

“Frank is smart, you know? You can’t blame him for that animal. It’s a crazy business we’re in, you know? That could happen to anyone, even you. Why don’t I go back and talk to Frank and work it out? I’ll fix things between us. You got my word on that.” — Tony Montana

“Cono. Take it easy. At 10.5 a key, it’s puro. You can’t lose money. No way. We make 75 million on this deal. 75 million. That is serious money. Relax! Take it easy. I’m in tight with Sosa. You short a couple of mil, I go on the street for you. I make a couple of moves, a mil here, a mil there, you got it. Okay? I got ears, you know. I hear things. Fuck Gaspar Gomez and fuck the Diaz brothers! Fuck them all! I’ll bury those cockroaches! What they ever do for us? Look, Frank, the time has come. We gotta expand. The whole operation. Distribution. New York, Chicago, LA. We gotta set our own mark and enforce it. We gotta think big now.” — Tony Montana

“Like what? You calling me a liar, Frank? That what you’re calling me? Stall it? Okay, boss. Come on. Sure, you’re the boss. You finished? Can I go now?” — Tony Montana

“Hi, there. Too bad. Only I didn’t come to see Frank. That’s okay. I got something important I want to talk to you about. So why don’t we have a couple of drinks, act normal, and just take it easy? Come on. I like Scotch. Okay. I won’t bite you. That’s right. I think it’s easier, don’t you? Makes things easier. Thank you. Here’s to the land of opportunity. You like kids? Kids. You know, kids. Little kids. Good, ’cause I like kids, too. I like them. Boys, girls. Don’t matter to me. Come here. Sit here. I want to talk to you. Sit down. I’m not gonna bite you. Okay, here’s the story. I come from the gutter. I know that. I got no education, but that’s okay. I know the street, and I’m making all the right connections. With the right woman, there’s no stopping me. I could go right to the top. Anyway, what I got to tell you is this, I like you. I liked you the first time I laid eyes on you. I said, ‘she’s a tiger.’ ‘She’ll belong to me.’ Anyway, I want you to marry me. I want you to be the mother of my children. That’s right. Frank is not gonna last, okay? He’s finished. Just think about it, okay? I want you to really think about it. I’ll go now. Take care.” — Tony Montana

“So? What you told me to tell them. That we… I was in sanitation. They didn’t go for it. Yeah. You didn’t tell me that. When did you tell me that?”

“Tony! Montana! Tony Montana! Come here. Come here, man. I gotta talk to you. Come on, man. It’s important. I gotta talk to you. Leave him alone. Are you ready for some good news? We can be outta this place in 30 days. Not only that, but we got a green card and a job in Miami. Now are we made or are we made, man? No, man, somebody else. No.”

“Guy named Rebenga, man. Emilio Rebenga. Yeah? Yeah. Well, he’s coming in here today. Castro just sprung him. This guy was one of the top dogs for Fidel in the early days. Castro felt he couldn’t trust him anymore and threw him in jail. But while he was on top, he tortured a few guys to death. One of the guy’s brothers is a rich guy in Miami now. He wants the favor repaid. That’s where we come in. Yeah.”


“That doesn’t look like me.”

“What’s wrong, man? Que pasa, man? He’s coming! What do you want from me? I told you. What’s wrong?”

“Look at that one. That one in the pink. She’s beautiful. Look at those titties. Well, he’s very handsome, for one thing, you know? I mean, look at the way he dresses. Come on. That’s style, flash, pizzazz. And a little coke money doesn’t hurt nobody. That’s him, man. That’s El mono. I told you.”

“Waldo! Good to see you, man. This is my friend Tony Montana I’ve been telling you about. Tony, that’s Omar Suarez, and that’s Waldo Rojas over there. Yeah? What we gotta do? 500? That’s great.”

“That was something else. You can’t do that, man! Go, pay them, bring it back, yeah? Yeah, man. We were in the Army. You’re pushing your luck. That was dumb. What’s this with the Colombians? He says ‘Colombians,’ and you make these eyes… close the shop!”

“Look at those tits. She’s begging for it. Not that one, man! That one! The young one. We’re just staying loose up here. You gotta stay loose. You can’t worry. You’ll have a heart attack. Miami Beach, man!”

“You have such beautiful skin. I like the way you… I don’t know what I’m supposed to do today, but… come on, come on. Let’s do it, man. Come on. We’re all gonna be all right.”

“Yeah, man. It went in and out.”

“Went right through. It’s nothing. It went right through me. It hit the wall. I ran out of bullets, like an asshole. When I changed the clip, a guy who I thought I killed wasn’t dead and shot me. The guy was behind me. I killed him. Bullets? One bullet. 9mm.”

“Yeah? She likes you? How do you know? Are you serious? That’s the boss’s lady, okay? You’re gonna get us killed. Don’t fucking go crazy on me, okay? Just remember last year at this time we were in a fucking cage, okay? I say be happy with what you got. What’s coming to you? Oh, man.”

“You know what I want? I thought of this the other day. A line of blue jeans. With my name written on the back of chicks’ asses. How’s that? Look at that. Look. You’re missing the sights. That’s what you’re doing. We’re missing the action. Ice cream? You said ‘ice cream?’ Oh, come on man. That’s not gonna work. You can’t do it that way. You know how you pick up chicks in this country? That’s what you do. Watch. Figures you wouldn’t understand. But the women in this country, when you do that, they know. They understand. They go crazy. It’ll take practice, but you gotta learn. ‘Cause women love when you suck the pussy. Look at that. She’s looking at us. I think I can. Why not? You gonna watch me? Watch this. I’m gonna get her. Just be quiet. Just hang back. You’re looking very pretty today. Yes, you. I’ve been watching you. If I wasn’t a nice guy… causing trouble like that, come on. Bitch! Lesbian!”

“That’s the one I rented. No. That’s her, man. There she is. About time.”

“Yeah. Tigers, huh? Tigers, no? Crazy guy. Know what he’s been doing? Dragging me to the zoo to look at tigers. He says he’s gonna buy one. You do that and you won’t have any friends left. Not that you have any now. Okay. A scrambler.”

“She’s beautiful. How come you… okay.”

Frank Lopez, Scarface, Amazon Prime Video, Universal Pictures, Robert Loggia

Frank Lopez

“Tony Montana. You can call me Frank. Everybody calls me Frank. My Little League team, even the fucking prosecutors around town, they all call me Frank. We heard about that. Omar, he tells me great things about you guys. Not to mention, of course, the nice job you did for me. that Commie son of a bitch… that was fun? That was fun. What do you want to drink? Scotch, gin, rum? What do you like? I need a guy with steel in his balls, Tony. A guy like you. And I need him around me all the time. You, Tony, and your compadre here. I’m sorry about your friend, Tony. If people would do business the right way, there’d be no fuck-ups like this. Don’t think I don’t appreciate the gesture. You’re gonna find, you stay loyal in this business, you’re gonna move up. You’re gonna move up fast. And you’ll find out your biggest problem is not bringing in the stuff, but what to do with all the fucking cash! You’ll have that problem, don’t worry. Sit down over here. Where the hell’s Elvira? It’s late. Go find her, will you? Jesus! Fucking broad. She spends half her life dressing, the other half undressing. Yeah. You gotta jump on her when she’s not looking. What are you guys doing tonight? You wanna go to a nice restaurant with me? You hungry? Okay, they’ll cook you a horse. Tell me, where’d they get you? Right there in the side? How many bullets you catch?”

“Elvira, where the hell you been? It’s 10:00. I’m starving. Where you going? Come on. Come over here! I want you to meet a friend of mine. Tony Montana. Elvira. Manny Ribera. Elvira. I thought we’d go to the Babylon Club. Again. Assassinate me? Who the hell would want to kill me? I got nothing but friends! The catcher? That son of a bitch, he didn’t get a base hit all season. I should kill him!”

“You know who that is? Luis and Miguel Echevierra. They got the biggest distribution setup from here to Houston, Tucson, all down that way. What do you think of that, huh? Look. You see that fat bastard? That’s Nacho Contreras. El Gordo! He’s got more cash than anybody in this place. He’s a real chazer! You know what a chazer is? It’s the Yiddish word for ‘pig.’ A guy who wants more than he needs. He don’t fly straight no more. So, it comes down to one thing, Tony boy, and you never forget it. Lesson Number 1: Don’t underestimate the other guy’s greed! That’s right. Lesson Number 2: Don’t get high on your own supply. Course, not everybody follows the rules. That is ’64?”

“Omar, you pour it, and you bring another bottle right away, will you? $550 for this bottle, Tony. What do you think of that? For a bunch of fucking grapes. So, here’s to old friends and to new friends. How you like it, Tony? That’s good? That’s good! I’m gonna get you new clothes, too. I’m gonna get you $550 suits, so you look real sharp. ‘Cause I want you to work for me. I want you and your boys to work with Omar here. We are going to do something big next month. We are running a string of mules from Colombia. You do good on that, there’ll be some other things. Who? Me, dance? Want a heart attack instead. Yeah, sure. Go on, Tony. You dance. Go on. Have some fun.”

“What do you think of him? But you get a guy like that on your side, he breaks his back for you.”

“You what? You made a deal for fucking $18 million without even checking with me? Are you crazy, Montana? Are you crazy? Cono, my ass! What is Sosa going to do when I don’t come up with the first 5 million? What is he going to do? Will he send a me a bill? He’ll send a hit squad up here! There’ll be a war in the street. You’ve been making moves on your own? What do you hear about Echevierra and the Diaz brothers? What about Gomez? What’ll he do when you start moving 2,000 keys…”

“Think big. Like your friend Sosa. Let me tell you something about that greaseball cocksucker. He is a snake, that’s what he is. You turn your back on him, he’ll stick it in. You don’t trust a guy like that. You want me to believe Omar was a stoolie because Sosa said so? You bought that line? Maybe I made a mistake sending you down there. Maybe you and Sosa know something I don’t know. Like what? You tell me, ‘like what?’ Let’s just say I want things to stay the way they are for now. You stall your deal with Sosa. I am the boss.”

“Hey, Tony. Remember I told you when you started, the guys who last in this business are the guys who fly straight, low-key, quiet. And the guys who want it all, chicas, champagne, flash, they don’t last.”

Elvira Hancock, Scarface, Amazon Prime Video, Universal Pictures, Michelle Pfeiffer

Elvira Hancock

“You’re always hungry. You should try starving. Hello. So, there are five of us. Where are we having dinner? Again? You know, Frank, if anyone wanted to assassinate you, you wouldn’t be hard to find. You never know. Maybe the catcher on your Little League team.”

“Lesson Number 2: Don’t get high on your own supply. You wanna dance, Frank, or sit here and have a heart attack? Don’t foam into the Dommie P. How about you?”

“What? Hancock. Hancock! Baltimore. Baltimore! It doesn’t really matter, okay? I don’t need another friend, especially one who just got off a banana boat. Aren’t you part of the Cuban crime wave? Sorry. I didn’t know you were so sensitive about your diplomatic status. Hey, Jose. Who, why, when and how I fuck is none of your business, okay? Don’t call me ‘baby!’ I’m not your baby. Even if I were blind, desperate, starved and begging for it on a desert island, you’d be the last thing I’d ever fuck.”

“In that thing? You must be kidding. I wouldn’t be caught dead in that. It looks like somebody’s nightmare. You gonna drive around with a tiger in your passenger seat? Don’t forget the fog lights. I thought you were taking me to Frank. No, but I’m bored. Planning on driving the girls crazy, aren’t you, Tony? What would Frank say?”

“Sure. Don’t get confused, Tony. I don’t fuck around with the help. Shit. No! Playtime is over, okay?”

“You just missed Frank. This is not the time or the place, Tony. Next time, make an appointment. Sure. Why not? We’re all normal here. I heard you and Frank aren’t working together anymore. For you, maybe. Kids? Sure. Why not? As long as there’s a nurse. Frank’s gonna be back any minute. Me? Marry you? What about Frank, Tony? What will you do about Frank?”

Alejandro Sosa, Scarface, Amazon Prime Video, Universal Pictures, Paul Shenar

Alejandro Sosa

“So, this and my other factory, I can guarantee production of 200 kilos refined every month of the year. The problem is, I have no steady market. Basically, what I’m looking for is somebody in the States who can share the risk with me, somebody who can guarantee to buy from me, say, 150 kilos a month.”

“It would’ve been nice if he’d come. So he sent you instead? We’ll talk at my house, shall we?”

“This Lopez guarantees to buy 150 kilos from me every month of the year. He picks it up here. I can sell it to him for as little as 7,000 a key. You can’t do better than that. We cut out the Colombians, we take risks on both sides. Panama is risky. It costs me more. Panama I can sell for 13.5 a key. What do you suggest that is reasonable? Excuse me. One moment.”

“Now where were we? Something like that. No, it is all right. You’re right. Maybe you should talk to Frank. Good. My associates can escort you to my chopper to take you to Santa Cruz. I have a jet there. You’ll be in Miami in five hours. You’ll be back here tomorrow in time for lunch. Why not leave your friend here? While you’re gone, he can tell me how to run my business.”

“Let’s finish our lunch.”

“I like you, Tony. There is no lying in you. Unfortunately, I don’t feel the same about the rest of your organization. I’m talking about Omar Suarez. This garbage was recognized by my associate at lunch from several years ago in New York. He was an informer for the police. He put Vito Duval and Nello and Gino Ramos away for life. So how do I know you’re not a chivato, too, Tony? I think you speak from the heart, Montana. But I say to myself, ‘this Lopez, your boss, he had chivatos like that working for him.’ His judgment stinks. So I think to myself, ‘how many other mistakes has this Lopez guy made?’ ‘How can I trust his organization?’ You tell me, Tony. I think you and me, we can work this thing out, we do business together a long time. Just remember, I’ll only tell you one time, don’t fuck me, Tony. Don’t you ever try to fuck me.”

Omar Suarez, Scarface, Amazon Prime Video, Universal Pictures, F. Murray Abraham

“I got something for you. Gotta unload a boat. Marijuana. 45 tons. You get 500 each. First you gotta work your way up to 500. What’s with this dishwasher, chico? Don’t he know we could’ve got any space cadet to hit Rebenga cheaper? 50 bucks! Who the fuck are you?”

“Okay, all right, big man! You want to make some big bucks? Let’s see how tough you are. You know something about cocaine? Digame! There’s a bunch of Colombians coming in Friday. New guys. They say they got two keys for us, for openers. Pure coke. Hotel in Miami Beach. I want you to go over there. If it’s what they say. pay them and bring it back. Do that, you got 5 grand. You know how to handle a machine gun? You gonna need a couple other guys. Be at Hector’s bodega at noon, Friday. You get the buy money then. If anything happens to that buy money, my boss will stick your heads up your asses faster than a rabbit gets fucked!”

“Yeah, well, I’ll check it out right away. You still got the money? You got the yeyo? Bring it here.”

“Frank Lopez. Tony Montana.”

“I think he’s a fucking peasant!”

“Oh, that’s a big commitment, Mr. Sosa. Something like that… too bad Frank’s not here. You should talk to him.”

“But then we got to take the risk of moving it. We’ll be cutting out the Colombians. Know what that means?”

“What the fuck’s the matter with you? Are you negotiating for Frank Lopez? I’m not worried about it. You should worry about it. If he wants to make a deal, it’s up to him, not you. We’re doing this one deal. That’s it. Fuck you. You need to open your eyes and keep your mouth shut. That’s it. Let it go at that. Your head’s in the wrong place. You must watch out for yourself. Why don’t you talk to him about it? You think he wants to give you money? I’m doing the talking here, not you. You’re here to watch my back. Watch my back. Close your mouth. I can’t wait to see what Frank’s gonna react to this one. Just shut up. I’m doing the talking here.”

“Look, Mr. Sosa, we’re getting ahead of ourselves. I am down on Frank’s authority to buy 200 keys, that’s it. That’s my limit. I got no right. Nobody got no right to negotiate… you got no authority here. I started you in this business, so shut the fuck up. That’s up to Frank, not you! I’m sorry about this, Mr. Sosa. Well, good. I don’t think it’s something I want to do on an overseas phone. But as soon as I get back to Miami, I will talk to Frank personally. Good. I think Frank wants to see him. I guess so.”

“Oh, Tony! I never thought I’d see you again, you know? Well, no. You look so good. For me? On the back? Aw. ‘Always.’ It’s beautiful, Tony!”

“Mama is still working in the factory, and I work part-time in the beauty parlor. I’m doing hair, Tony. Do you remember Hiram Gonzalez? His father owned that barbershop. It’s his place. Plus I go to junior college. Miami Dade. In two more years, I get my cosmetology license. Then I’ll be making enough money… why?”

“Mama. What are you saying? That’s your son… no. Mama… Tony. Why do you have to spoil it for everybody, huh? I’m sorry, Tony. No. Tony, wait a minute! Don’t go, please! No, Mama. Tony, wait, please! I’m sorry. I don’t know. Mama, ever since Papa left, she’s… I know you did some bad things back then. In the Army, I know you got into some trouble. Mama doesn’t understand that. I just… I don’t know. I just want you to know that I don’t care. It doesn’t matter to me how long you’ve been away, five or ten years. You’re my blood, always. I gotta go back in. No, Tony. Please. What will I tell her? Okay. I’ll talk to her.”

“Antonio. No postcards from jail, huh? Tony? Look at you.”

“Who did you kill for this, Antonio? No? What are you doing now? Banks, or is it still bodegas, you and the others? Sure you do. A gun sticking in somebody’s face is how. You know, all we hear about in the papers is animals like you and the killings. It’s Cubans like you who are giving a bad name to our people, people who come here, work hard and make a good name for themselves. People who send their children to school. Son? I wish I had one. He’s a bum. He was a bum then and he’s a bum now. Who do you think you are? Mmm? We haven’t heard a word from you in five years. You suddenly show up here, throw some money around and think you can get my respect. You think you can buy me with jewelry? You think you can come into my house with your hotshot clothes and your jail manners and make fun of us? That’s not the way I am, Antonio! That is not the way I raised Gina to be! You are not going to destroy her. I don’t need your money. I work for my living. I don’t want you in this house anymore! I don’t want you around Gina. So come on. Get out! And take this lousy money with you. It stinks. Gina, stay here! He’s no good. Gina!”

“There’s two guys looking for you out there. Don’t stay too fucking long. We’ve got a lot of work to do.”

“What you guys doing? There’s a lot of dishes to be washed. What the fuck you gonna do now? Don’t come back here! Fuck you guys!”

Chi Chi

“Are you fucking crazy? She’s 103 years old. Which one? Just play it cool. Miami Beach.”


“Where are you going? You’re chicken, man. You almost made it.”

“That looks pretty man. Whoo!”

“Sure thing. Tony!”


“Hola! Como el todo? Entra. Entra. Sure. No problem. No problem. Hello. This is Marta. I am Hector. Yeah? Good. Omar’s okay. So, you got the money? Sure I have the stuff, but not right here with me now. I got it close by. Where? In the car? No? Not far. Where you from, Tony? Take it easy, man. I just want to get to know who I do business with. Yeah? You want to give me the cash, or do I kill your brother first before I kill you? Yeah? Okay. Hey! Antonio, mira! Watch what happens to your friend. If you don’t want this to happen to you, give me the money. Now the leg, huh. Okay, cara cicatriz. You can die, too. It makes no difference to me. Last chance, pendejo!”

“What do you call yourself, huh? What kind of work you do in Cuba? Any family in the States? Cousins, brother-in-law, anybody? Just answer the questions, Tony.”

Immigration Officer 2

“Where’d you learn English, Tony? So where’s your old man now? Mother? You ever been to jail, Tony? Been in a mental hospital? What about homosexuality, Tony? You like men, huh? You like to dress up like a woman? Arrested for vagrancy? Marijuana? Heroin? Cocaine? Come on!”

“Carter should see this human right. He’s really good. What do you say?”

Immigration Officer 3

“Where’d you get the beauty scar, tough guy? Eating pussy? Mm-hmm. And this? Sweetheart, my ass! We’ve been seeing more and more of these. Some kind of code these guys used in the can. Pitchfork means an assassin or something. You want to tell us about it, or you want to take a trip to the detention center? That’s pretty funny, Tony. Did you mug him first? Get him out of here!”

“I don’t have to listen to this! I don’t believe any of this shit! They all sound alike to me. That Castro is shitting all over us. Send the bastard to Freedom Town. Let them see him. Get him out of here. Get him out of here!”

Fidel Castro
