Best Quotes From The Departed

Updated on November 19, 2010


I like quotes, I do. However, there's a place and time for them. I see a lot of people putting quotes everywhere now, like on their Facebook pages. Sorry, I don't like that stuff.. It just has that hint of 'I want to show I'm clever and the fact I can read' to it.

Yeah sure 'your mind is like a parachute, if it's half open you will fall' that sort of stuff.. Anyway, to each his own. I had my -quote moment- today and had to think of a movie, The Departed. I dug up some quotes I thought were nice. It definitely does not show any hint of me trying to be clever, but they sure are funny!

Top Ten Quotes of The Departed

I love movies. I don't just watch a movie if it's good, I'll watch it ten times over. Most movies are not worth it. The Departed is a movie that's definitely worth watching a couple of times, if not more than ten times! Even if it was just for figuring out who Mark Wahlberg was at the end of the movie.. I mean, talk about an open end! (to be honest, I still haven't figured it out yet...).

The movie is quite raw, and there is some pretty foul language in it. Some said it's a bit overdone. The times the word is being said in this movie is 237 times. No, I haven't counted it myself but yes there are some people who did. Rainy day, bored, no job, I don't know what to tell you but they did count it and some edited into a short movie.

I browsed a bit around the net to find you some the best quotes in this movie.In no particular order, here they are:

1- "I'm concerned about a Chinaman, who thinks it's wise to come to a business meeting, carrying automatic weapons. Because in this country, it don't add inches to your dick, you get a life sentence for it."

2- "No ticky, no laundry."

3- "One of us had to die. With me, it tends to be the other guy."

4- "You got a nice suit at home or do you like coming to work everyday dressed like you're goin' to invade Poland?"

5- “I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy.”

6- “I’m gonna go have a smoke right now. You want a smoke? You don’t smoke, do ya, right? What are ya, one of those fitness freaks, huh? Go fukc yourself.”

7- "We're all gonna die, let's act accordingly."

8- "Frank Costello: You do well in school?
Young Colin: Yeah
Frank Costello: Good. So did I. They call that a paradox."

9- Ellerby: Go f**k yourself.
Dignam: I'm tired from f**king your wife.
Ellerby: How is your mother?
Dignam: Good, she's tired from f**king my father.


Ellerby: [on Sullivan getting married] Marriage is an important part of getting ahead. It lets people know you're not a homo. A married guy seems more stable. People see the ring, they think, "At least somebody can stand the son of a bitch." Ladies see the ring, they know immediately that you must have some cash, and your c**k must work.
Colin Sullivan: [laughs nervously] Yeah, it's workin'. Overtime!
