"I've always liked graveyards."
"Let me guess; a nice, quiet place where you can contemplate your insignificance?"
"No... every spring when I was a boy my mother would take us out to my grandfather's and grandmother's grave. It's an old world thing. She'd plant for flowers, say some prayers ... then we'd spread a blanket and have a nice picnic."
"A picnic on your grandparents' grave?"
"Well, yeah, were we going to picnic on the graves of someone else's grandparents?"

- Phil Cerreta and Mike Logan

"You can't keep a kid clean and dress him in clean clothes if you don't have a home."
"There's no sign of exposure, he must have been covered. What's a kid like that doing out in the cold?"
"What's any kid doing out in the cold?"

"The message I get is that the landlord would be thrilled if her tenants left."
"And maybe the heat was off accidentally on purpose."

- Mike Logan and Phil Cerreta

"I don't believe this. A baby dies in one of your buildings, and you blame the rent laws?"
"For destroying the value of my property, yeah."

- Mike Logan and Former Tenant

-"I put a chair against my door, middle of the night ,boom- the doors down and that creep Turner, he's in my living room".

- Benjamin Stone and Iris Corman
