Tony: Allora, come stai, Leone?
[Tony puts out his cigarette in an ashtray]
Tony: OK. OK. Let's talk business.
Stansfield: I like these calm little moments before the storm. It reminds me of Beethoven. Can you hear it? It's like when you put your head to the grass and you can hear the growin' and you can hear the insects. Do you like Beethoven?
Malky: I couldn't really say.
Mathilda: Do you "clean" anyone?
Léon: No women, no kids, that's the rules.
Mathilda: How much would it cost to hire someone to get those dirtbags who killed my brother?
Léon: Five grand a head.
Mathilda: Wow. How about this: I work for you; in exchange, you teach me how to clean. Hmmm? What do you think? I'll clean your place, I'll do the shopping, I'll even wash your clothes. Is it a deal?
Mathilda: Can we try with real bullets now?
[to receptionist after being asked about her father, Leon]
Mathilda: He's not my father. He's my lover.
Stansfield: Tony, you've killed for us in the past, and we've always been satisfied, which is why it's very hard for me to come down here today. One of my men was killed today in your territory, and the chinks tell me the killer was of the... Italian persuasion. Now, wait, there's more. You'll love this. Not two hours later, a little twelve-year-old girl comes to my building, armed to the teeth with the sole intention of sending me straight to the morgue. And guess who comes to get her? The very same Italian hit man.
Léon: Revenge is not good. Once you're done. Believe me.
Mathilda: There's no doorbell.
Léon: So knock on the door.
Mathilda: How are we getting out of here now?
Léon: Leave it to me. We're checking out.
Mathilda: I think we'll be OK here, Leon.
