Movie quotes

  • (..) I had nothing to tell them. I only had grams, you know the law. They couldn't do anything. They kept me in custody and eventually had to let me go. Do you want to have a sandwich? - I'm not getting in this car. - Get in. - Let me go! - Hands off! Who's taking you home? Who's taking you home? (..)
