Charley Varrick Quotes

Walter Matthau as Charley Varrick

  • (Walter Matthau) "The problem is the big gorilla in the maroon car who's trying to kill me."
  • (Walter Matthau) "You know what dirty money is? That's the kind of money you can't declare on your income tax. Well, when certain people get that kind of money, what they do is send it out of the country to invest, and when it comes back, it's clean."

  • (Andrew Robinson) "Are you telling me that I can't spend none of this money for three, four years?"

  • (Walter Matthau) "No."
  • (Andrew Robinson) "Nothing more you wanna hang onto me?"

I mean, I'm gonna wail. And I'm talking about chicks, cars, clothes, a box at the races, and beefsteak three times a day, and no washed up, chicken-shit son-of-a-bitch had better try stop me."
  • (Walter Matthau) "I like your bed. You may find this hard to believe but I've never slept on a round bed."

  • (Joe Don Baker) "I don't sleep with whores -- at least, not knowingly."

John Vernon as Maynard Boyle

  • (Woodrow Parfrey) "Do you know what would have happened if I'd taken those people to an empty vault?"
  • (John Vernon) "Number one, the money would have been saved, number two there'd be no question of an inside job."
  • (Woodrow Parfrey) "Inside job?"
