[Barry is approached by detectives, thinking that they are after Pope]
Barry Brown: Oh sorry guys. You just missed him.
Armed robbery detective: That's alright. We like you better.
Detective: [shouting, referring to Barry who is unarmed] He's got a gun!
[the Armed Robbery Detective raises his shotgun up and shoots Barry]

Andrew 'Pope' Cody: Turn around, pig cunt.

Andrew 'Pope' Cody: [Last words before being killed, and last words of the film] It's a crazy fucking world.

Janine Cody: [crying] I'm having trouble trying to find my positive spin. I'm usually very good at it. Usually it's right there, and I can just have it. But I'm having trouble finding it now.

[after the death of Craig, another one of Josh's uncles] Leckie: You know what the bush is about? It's about massive trees that have been standing there for thousands of years... and bugs that'll be dead before the minute's out. It's big trees and pissy little bugs. And everything knows its place in the scheme of things. Everything... everything sits in the order somewhere. Things survive because they're strong, and everything reaches an understanding. But not everything survives because it's strong. Some creatures are weak, but they survive because they're being protected by the strong for one reason or another. You may think that, because of the circles you move in or whatever, that you're one of the strong creatures, but you're not, you're one of the weak ones. That's nothing against you, you're just - you're just weak because you're young. But you've survied because you've been protected by the strong. But they're not strong anymore, and they're certainly not able to protect you. We're here because we know who you are and we know what you've done. Now, I know you feel like you're in a tough situation. But you have an out. There's nothing your uncles can do to squirm out of this one; Craig's learned that the hard way. But you're not like them. We can see that, and you know that. Now I know that they're saying to you that talking to me is betraying the family, but they've betrayed *you*. The fact that you're talking to me, the fact that you've been left to deal with us... is all the proof that you need. And you're in danger. Don't be confused about that. I think you know. And I think you know that I can help you. But I can't keep offering. You've gotta decide. You've gotta work out where you fit.
Joshua 'J' Cody: I don't know why you're telling me all of this.
Leckie: Yes, you do.
