"The blood stays on the blade..."

"Some of it I half remember. And the rest... The rest I took from dreams."

"Is this it, Preist? The Pope's new army? A few crusty bitches and a hand full of rag tags?"

"I know Bill, you swear this was a battle between warriors. Not a bunch of 'Miss Nancies'. So warriors is what I brought."

"Ears and noses will be the trophies of the day. But no hand shall touch him! No hand shall touch him! He'll cross over whole... in honor."

"In the second year of the great civil war, when the Irish brigade marched through the streets, New York was a city full of tribes. War chiefs. Rich and poor. It wasn't a city, really. It was more of a furnace. Where a city some day might be forged."

"New York loved William Tweed, and hated him. And those of us trying to be thieves well... we couldn't help but admire him."

"She is a prim lookin' star gazer!"

"Ghoul? That's a good word. 'Ghoul Gang Slaughters, Then Sells To Medical Science, A Fresh Outrage In The Five Points.' That's a notice you can be proud of."

"For every lay, we had a different name. An 'Angler' put a hook on the end of a stick to drop behind store windows and doors. An 'Autumn Diver' picked your pocket in church. A 'Badger' gets a fella into bed with a girl, and then robs his pockets while their on the go. Jenny was a 'Bludger', a girl pickpocket. And a 'Turtle Dove'. A 'Turtle Dove goes uptown dressed like a house maid, picks out a fine house and goes right through the back door. Robs you blind. It takes a lotta sand to be a 'Turtle Dove'."

"Is he drunk?"

"Ah... dead as Good Friday, Miss."

"Is this a new lad?"

"Just another bastard son of Aaron, I've folded in the warmth of my embrace."

"Say hello to Amsterdam... nearly fish hooked McGloin the other day."

"It's a funny feeling gettin' taken under the wing of a dragon. It's warmer than you think."

"I don't never sleep too much. I have to sleep with one eye open. I only got one eye, right?"

"You know how I stayed alive this long? All these years... fear. The spectacle of fearsome acts. Somebody steals from me, I got off his hands. He offends me, I cut off his tongue. He rises against me, I cut off his head, stick it on a pike. Raise it high up, so all on the streets can see. That's what preserves the order of things. Fear..."

"I couldn't look him in the eye. He spared me because... he wanted me to live in shame. This was a great man... Great man. So I cut out the eye that looked away... Sent it to him wrapped in blue paper. I would've cut'em both out if I could've fought him blind. And I rose back up again with a full heart, and buried him in his own blood."


"To defeat my enemy, I extinguish his life. And consume him as I consume these flames! In honor of Priest Vallon."

"He'll walk among you in shame. A freak, worthy of 'Barnham's Museum Of Wonders'. God's only man spared by 'The Butcher'."

"Here's the thing... I don't give a tumpany fuck about your moral conundrum, you meat-headed shit sack! That's more or less the thing."

"The earth turns, but we don't feel it move. And one night you look up... one spark and the sky is on fire."

"The past is the torch that lights our way. Where our fathers have shown us the path we shall follow. Our faith is the weapon most feared by our enemies. For thereby shall we lift our people up against those who would destroy us. Our name is called the 'Dead Rabbits'."

"That man was right born for this."

"Well, he's killed forty four men. Laid low a couple hundred more."

"Is that right? I shoulda' run him for mayor!"

"I know your works. Your neither cold, nor hot. So, because you are luke warm I will spew you outta my mouth. You can build your filthy world without me. I took the father, now I'll take the son. Tell young Vallon 'I'm gunna paint Paradise Square with his blood. Two coats! And I'll festoon my bed chamber with his guts!'"

"The read out the draftees names like they was dead already."


"Whenever you like."

"Day break tomorrow."

"We're on."

"Paradise Square."


"That I leave to you."

"Bricks, bats, axes, knives... pistols?"

"No pistols."

"Good boy."

"In the end.. they put candles on the bodies so their friends... if they had any would know them in the dark. The city did this free of charge."

"We don't know how many New Yorkers died that week, before our city was finally delivered. My father told me we was all born of blood and tribulation. And so then too... was our great city."
