LEE: God damn it, Selby. Keep your f*****g voice down! Now listen to me… They aren’t coming! I never wanted you in this s**t, Sell. But I know what I’m doing alright? There’s no f*****g way for you to understand it all so you gotta trust me. Look, they don’t have one god damn thing. This s**t here is long over already so they’re not even looking and they didn’t seem to give a s**t in the first place… These guys were bad news! You see what I’m saying? Nobody cares!? You got these rapists and killers, with ten different people wanting ‘em dead so they shut the book. I’m doing ‘em a favor! Now, beyond that I’m still real careful… (realizing – angry) I didn’t exactly wanna wreck the f*****g car in public! (calming) But we did… and I figure if they were gonna call the cops… they woulda done it then, so nobody’s coming after you.
