Totes Quotes - Mulholland Falls

Quote: “It’s not what you say, it’s the way you say it!”

If I had a quid for every time I’d heard that, I’d be a rich, rich man. Trouble is, it’s not exactly accurate is it? Great dialogue transcends the performance from whence it came and has the ability to infiltrate popular culture and consciousness.

From the endlessly quotable to the words you wish you’d said yourself, each week will feature an iconic iteration. So in the words of Reservoir Dogs’ Joe Cabot…”Let’s go to work!”

Totes Quotes - Mulholland Falls


Mulholland Falls (1996) finds Max Hoover (Nolte) and his squad solving the crimes of  LA’s seedy underbelly, either by hook or by crook. After beating an FBI agent to a bloody pulp, Nolte spits the following lines:

“See? That’s federal property. This isn’t. This is L.A. This is my town. Out here you’re a trespasser. Out here I can pick you up, burn your house, fuck your wife, and kill your dog. And the only thing that’ll protect you is if I can’t find you. And I already found you.”

Bad ass level: Over 9000!
