Dog Day Afternoon
Movie Quote Quiz

Leon: I couldn't explain why I did the things I did. So I went to this psychiatrist who explained to me I was a woman in a man's body. So Sonny right away wanted to get me money for a sex change operation: but where was he to get that? 2500 dollars! My God, he's in hock up to his ears already.

Sonny: You'd like to kill me? Bet you would.
Sheldon: I wouldn't like to kill you. I will if I have to.
Sonny: It's your job, right? The guy who kills me... I hope he does it because he hates my guts, not because it's his job.

Sonny: You! Manager! Fucker! Don't get any ideas, you hear?
Sheldon: Believe me, I'm on your side on this one.
Sonny: Yeah, my side, shit.
Sylvia: Look, there are young ladies, here. You could watch your language, you know.
Sonny: I speak what I feel. "Watch my language." Empty the drawer out.

Sonny: I'm a Catholic, I don't want to hurt anybody.

Sonny: Bank robbing is a federal offense. You got me on kidnapping, armed robbery. You're gonna bury me, man.

Leon: I mean, how do they expect you to get uncrazy if you're asleep all the time?

Sylvia: Why don't you smoke?
Sal: I don't want the cancer.

Sonny: Is there any special country you wanna go to?
Sal: Wyoming.
Sonny: Sal, Wyoming's not a country.

Continuity mistake: In the exterior shot of Sal entering the bank, there is a car parked by the door. In the interior shot, the car is not visible behind Sal. This mistake is reversed half a minute later when Sonny enters the bank. There is no car in the exterior shot, but it can be seen in the interior one. (00:04:00)

Question: How did Sonny know that the black limo driver was a cop?

Answer: He didn't. He just assumed the cops would try something like that, substituting a cop for the real driver. What he didn't anticpate is that they had substituted cops for everyone around the bus when it arrived, and when he replaced the black driver he would have to (unknowingly) pick a cop, regardless. Incidentally, this part of the story is completely factual, it actually happened that way.
