The Monkey's Paw (I) (2013)
Tony Cobb: You still drinking beer?
Jake Tilton: Hey, man, does a frog scratch his ass before he farts?
Tony Cobb: Here's to the life, huh?
Jake Tilton: Yeah. Carry on.
Tony Cobb: She likes me.
Jake Tilton: Yeah, you think she likes the old ones, huh?
Tony Cobb: No. Not the older ones, the classy ones. Hey, speaking of which, did you see that GT out in the yard?
Jake Tilton: Oh, hell yeah.
Jake Tilton: We box bolts and straps for a living. That's what we do. We take bolts and straps, and we put 'em in a box. Like, what kid wants to do that when they grow up?
Tony Cobb: You gonna do other things. You're still young.
Jake Tilton: Still young. You know what, what do I have to look forward to, Cobb? I got my mom. She's dying of cancer. Then my Brother... He's calling me all the time asking me to help him pay these bills, and I can't afford a car to walk... I'm walking all aorund town trying to get where I'm going. I got the scum bucket of a boss married to my ex-girlfriend. It's like ever since I left that girl, man, it's just like the first domino in this long line of bad decisions.
Tony Cobb: Things work out. Like I say, you're still young.
Jake Tilton: Are you listening to me?
Tony Cobb: Yeah, I'm listening to you, man. Why don't you listen to me for a minute. Hey, look at this. You know what that is? That's a court order. Let me tell you a story. The old man fall in love, yeah with a younger girl. I thought she loved me too. We had a kid together. I mean, I'm thinking wedding bells, white picket fences, whew! I guess she wasn't thinking that way because this is what love looks like, man. That's a court order. That says that I cannot come within 500 yards of my own son. My own son! I mean, she can rot in hell, but I would like to see my boy now and again. Yeah, you got problems, huh? I tell you something about the courts. They gonna side with the woman every time, don't matter if she's a woman of your dreams or a frigid cold, vindictive bitch. Anyway, we all got problems, Jake.
Jake Tilton: Hey man, I am sorry about that. I didn't know you had a kid.
Tony Cobb: That's alright. Don't matter. All I'm saying is we all get dealt cards. It's how you play 'em and man, play yours better than I played mine.
Jake Tilton: Hey, thanks man.
Tony Cobb: What is that?
Gillespie: It's just some ugly old thing my daddy gave me as a boy. I should have got rid of it a long time ago. It's a monkey's paw.
Tony Cobb: What?
Gillespie: Monkey's paw. My dat said it'll do magic if you want it to.
Tony Cobb: Hey, monkey magic? Some kind of hoodoo?
Detective Margolis: Mr. Tilton? Detective Margolis. So, this man you say is making threats against you. When did you see him last?
Jake Tilton: This morning. He assaulted me.
Detective Margolis: Got some bruises I see.
Jake Tilton: He also murdered my mother.
Detective Margolis: Yeah, about that, I spoke with the attending over at Charity, and they're saying heart failure. When was the last time you saw Kevin Weese?
Jake Tilton: What does this have to do with anything?
Detective Margolis: You know he's dead? Somebody crushed him in one of your industrial presses over at the supply warehouse where you and he and this Mr. Cobb all work.
Jake Tilton: Tony Cobb. He did this, man. You got to believe me.
Detective Margolis: How long have you been seeing the late Mr. Weese's wife?
Jake Tilton: Where are you getting your information?
Detective Margolis: An anonymous tip.
Jake Tilton: Tony Cobb.
Detective Margolis: You haven't denied it yet.
Jake Tilton: Tony Cobb is behind all this.
Detective Margolis: I remember you. You were here the other morning. You looked like you needed someone to talk to. What's on your mind?
Jake Tilton: Am I under arrest?
Detective Margolis: No. No, not yet. But if you leave town, that could be a big problem.
The Guard: Aggravation I do not need! Hey! Hey! Are you insane? I'm gonna get fired! You got to be out of your damn mind! Drunk driver, you almost... oh.
Tony Cobb: Almost?
The Guard: I'm just gonna... I'm just gonna go, all right?
Detective Margolis: Bad things happen all the time, especially around here.
Tony Cobb: I'm so tired... so very tired

Tony Cobb: [to Kevin in a vice] Push a button that's all I do and I can't do that right
Charlie: [hitting Cobb to no effect] Take this you son of a bitch
Gillespie: [On giving the paw to Jake] I had a share of bad luck... I figure you should have some
