Léon: [reluctantly] Yeah.
“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: I’ve decided what to do with my life. I wanna be a cleaner.
Léon: You wanna be a cleaner?
[passes her a gun and bullets]
Léon: Here, take it. It’s a goodbye gift. Go clean. But not with me. I work alone, understand? Alone.
Mathilda: Bonnie and Clyde didn’t work alone. Thelma and Louise didn’t work alone. And they were the best.”

“Mathilda: Can we try with real bullets now?”
“Mathilda: Leon, I think I’m falling in love with you. It’s the first time for me, you know?
Léon: How do you know it’s love if you’ve never been in love before?
Mathilda: ‘Cause I feel it.
Mathilda: In my stomach. It’s all warm. I always had a knot there and now, . . . it’s gone.
Léon: Mathilda, I’m glad you don’t have a stomach ache any more. I don’t think it means anything.”

Léon: So knock on the door.”
“Mathilda: I am already grown up, I just get older.”
“Mathilda: You killed my brother. Stansfield: I’m sorry. And you want to join him?
Stansfield: It’s always the same thing. It’s when you start to become really afraid of death that you learn to appreciate life. Do you like life, sweetheart?
Stansfield: That’s good, because I take no pleasure in taking life if it’s from a person who doesn’t care about it.”
“Mathilda: How are we getting out of here now?
Léon: Leave it to me. We’re checking out.”
“Mathilda: I don’t wanna lose you, Leon!”

“Marty: If I’m not mistaken, you’ve come back here to the house of loneliness and tears, to Daddy Downer and Brother Bummer, to come to some sort of decision about life, a life decision if you will.”
“Willie Conway: How old are you?
Marty: Thirteen. But I have an old soul.”

Anakin: I’m a person and my name is Anakin.”
