the grifters quotes

Hardison: “Wait, wait, what the hell’s going on down there? Nate killed somebody.”

Eliot: “No, Nate didn’t kill somebody. You didn’t, did you?”

Nate: “Of course not.”

Parker: “You’d tell us, though, wouldn’t you?”

Nate: “Yes, Parker, I would tell you if I’d murdered the mark.”

Parker: “Umm.”

–Leverage (The 10 Li’l Grifters Job, S4E2)

I’ll always be a slobbering idiot for people I love: The Grifters, Patti Smith, the new Ginsberg boxed set, MC5 ­totally pulled out that one. I listen to Sun Ra. I listen to Kiss, anything. Led Zeppelin, Bad Brains, Shudder to Think, Tom Waits, Lou Reed, De Niro.
