Cooper Howard: Every one of them? So, what are you, a millionaire communist?

Lee Moldaver: Hypocrisy is like violence in your movies. If you only let the bad guys use it, the bad guys win.

Cooper Howard: Yeah? I, uh, I got a little showbiz secret for you. A good bad guy doesn't see themselves as the bad guy.

Lee Moldaver: America has been locked in a resource war for over a decade. Vault-Tec bought the means to end that war, the same war you fought in, so they could put it on the shelf. All because it didn't fit into their business model. I want your help in getting it back.

Charles Whiteknife: Do you know what "fiduciary responsibility" means?

Cooper Howard: Fiduciary responsibility?

Charles Whiteknife: Yeah.

Cooper Howard: No, I have no f**king idea. I play a cowboy for a living.

Charles Whiteknife: Okay. So, the U.S. government has outsourced the survival of the human race to Vault-Tec. Vault-Tec is a private corporation that has a fiduciary responsibility to make money for its investors. And how does it make money? By selling vaults.

Cooper Howard: That's called capitalism, Charlie.

Cooper Howard: We got money. We can buy a spot in the vaults.

Barb Howard: One of the good vaults.

Cooper Howard: What's that supposed to mean?

Barb Howard: I'm doing what I can, okay? Just... trust me. Please.

(The Ghoul ties up Lucy and throws her into a lake...)

Lucy MacLean: Stop. Stop! Torture is wrong.

The Ghoul: You know, they used to do these things called "studies." Why, you couldn't open a newspaper without reading about one study or another. Anyway, this one particular study came out, and it said that torturing a person don't do sh*t. It made sense. I mean, a man hurts me, I wouldn't want to do him any favors. And yet the practice of torture failed to vanish from this earth. In fact, as time marched on, I've personally noticed a decided uptick... in the amount of torture being doled out across the board.

Lucy MacLean: Sir, please, I need the head. It's the only way I can get my father back.

The Ghoul: My point is... if you ask me, them studies, they was right. Torturing a person don't do sh*t.

Lucy MacLean: Then why... why are you doing this?

The Ghoul: Well, I ain't torturing you, sweetheart. I'm using you as bait.

(Group of bounty hunters want The Ghoul's help with one last job...)

The Ghoul: Well, I tell you what, boys, whenever somebody says they're doing one last job, that usually means their heart's not in it. Probably never was. But for me, well... I do this sh*t for the love of the game. (starts killing them) You right, friend, about one thing. This right here was your last job. My paycheck wasn't quite what you expected, but... well, you know what they say. Us cowpokes... we take it as it comes. (throws the last guy into a grave)
