What you lookin’ at old man?
Duke
Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while you shouldn’t have fucked with? That’s me.
Walt Kowalski

Oh, I’ve got one. A Mexican, a Jew, and a colored guy go into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, “Get the fuck out of here.”
– Walt Kowalski

There. You finally look like a human being again. You shouldn’t wait so long between hair cuts, you cheap son of a bitch.
Barber Martin
Yeah. I’m surprised you’re still around. I was always hoping you’d die off and they got someone in here that knew what the hell they were doing. Instead, you’re just hanging around like the doo-wop dago you are.
Walt Kowalski
That’ll be ten bucks, Walt.
Barber Martin
Ten bucks? Jesus Christ, Marty. What are you, half Jew or somethin’? You keep raising the damn prices all the time.
Walt Kowalski
It’s been ten bucks for the last five years, you hard-nosed Polack son of a bitch.
Barber Martin
Yeah, well keep the change.
Walt Kowalski
See you in three weeks, prick.
Barber Martin
Not if I see you first, dipshit.
Walt Kowalski

Why didn’t you call the police?
Father Janovich
Well you know, I prayed for them to come but nobody answered.
Walt Kowalski

[sneering and aiming his gun] Get off my lawn!
– Walt Kowalski

[last lines]
[reading from Walt’s will] And I’d like to leave my 1972 Gran Torino to…
Lawyer
[the lawyer pauses and looks up at Ashley, who smiles expectantly]
…my friend… Thao Vang Lor. On the condition that you don’t chop-top the roof like one of those beaners, don’t paint any idiotic flames on it like some white trash hillbilly, and don’t put a big, gay spoiler on the rear end like you see on all the other zipperheads’ cars. It just looks like hell. If you can refrain from doing any of that… it’s yours.
Lawyer

Excuse me Sir, I need a haircut if you ain’t too busy you old Italian son of a bitch prick barber. Boy, does my ass hurt from all of the guys at my construction job.
– Thao Vang Lor

Are you fucking crazy? Go back in the house.
Smokie
Yeah? I blow a hole in your face and then I go in the house… and I sleep like a baby. You can count on that. We used to stack fucks like you five feet high in Korea… use ya for sandbags.
Walt Kowalski

Take these three items, some WD-40, a vise grip, and a roll of duct tape. Any man worth his salt can fix almost any problem with this stuff alone.
– Walt Kowalski

I’ll blow a hole in your face then go inside and sleep like a baby.
– Walt Kowalski

[to Father Janovich]
I think you’re an overeducated 27-year-old virgin who likes to hold the hands of superstitious old ladies and promise them everlasting life.
– Walt Kowalski

I once fixed a door that wasn’t even broken yet.
– Walt Kowalski

I confess that I have no desire to confess.
– Walt Kowalski

How old are you anyway?
Thug
Mentally, I’m way too old for you.
Sue Lor

You’re funny.
Youa
I’ve been called a lot of things, but never funny.
Walt Kowalski

What the hell does everybody want with my Gran Torino?
– Walt Kowalski

I used to stack fucks likes you five feet high in Korea… use ya for sand bags.
– Walt Kowalski

I’m here for a confession.
Walt Kowalski
Oh, Lord Jesus what have you done?
Father Janovich
