-You know, I went there the other day and got in an argument with the waitress. I asked for two slices. She says, "No."
-- I don't think they do slices at Pizza Hut.
-That's not the point. The point is, I asked for two slices, she goes, "What do we look like, a pizzeria?" Now tell me that wouldn't piss you off.
--Got to work on your anger management.
===
-Got those hide-a-keys that got those little fake rocks, you never seen those shits?
--I'm from Brooklyn, we got no fake rocks.
===
And it's not her fault, you know? It's not her fault that... father's a gangster, and mom was a whore.

Like I said, there's no playbook. All I know is that... in this line of work, you... you make the guy that's got the thing you want, you make him an ally. Not an enemy.

Tommy: I guess you didn't see all the guys in nice suits with huge guns. Okay. I'm going to explain it to you. There's a gulf here, there's a divide. A great divide, if you will. On the one side you got classy gentlemen, that get nice things, cars, houses. Beautiful women, big bank accounts. Fillet Mignon. Manicured lawns, and we get to have those things because, well, we live by a creed. A sense of civility, right? And then on the other side, there's you. You're a freak up, man. You're a psychopath. You make bad decisions, both personally, and businesswise, that affect other people. You have no reverence for the game and you played it wrong. You're lost in the woods without a compass, Austin, and do you know where that gets you?

Jimmy the booster p1 of 2:
Detroit's a single mother living in a trailer park with a baby on her hip. Now L.A.'s a porn star with fake tits, deep pockets, and a coke problem. Everybody comes out here to find something. Or run away from something. I'm doing both. Figured it was my environment that was making me who I was ... Rule number one. Stay away from cars less than five years old. I usually go for Toyotas or Hondas. The Japs know how to make cars. Rule number two, stay away from any high-end luxury sports cars, Mercedes, BMW, Audi. Sure, the payout might be higher, but then so is the risk. Rule number three. Mental focus, it's all about the breath.
Keeping your head clear, and being present is of paramount importance when a boost is going down. I started this when I was young and desperate and bored, but I had a talent for it.

Jimmy the booster p2 of 2:
On my best days, I would say it's a calling. Not like the other freakos who joyride around and abuse it. And yes, if you aren't a moron,
being a thief ain't so dangerous. But this is my practice, this is my discipline. Rule number four, perception is reality. You'd be amazing with what you can get away with if you look like you're working. But I am working. Rule number five, you pick the day in advance, but not the car. Picking the car is like deciding if you're
going to go talk to a girl at the bar. It's a frequency you tune into. You can call it a gut instinct, for me, it's like a wave at the back of my spine. ... And I don't know if it's the excitement of the unknown, or the adrenaline... but it's never wrong. I guess deep down, it's the part I like best. I've stolen 336 cars in the last 10 years, and this whooptie maked it 337. Rule six, you never trust anyone in the game. Ever. And one last thing... always know your price. My name is Jimmy Greco.

Low expectation for this Trejo film which is an above average low cost thriller that centered on a package inside the boot of a boosted car. From there, it connected a slew of characters who had great personal interests in that package. In sum, good story trumped shortcomings in other areas in this crime caper.
