(Tommy and Tommy’s dad look at her.)
Sheila: Well they do.

(Talking about the pool the boys are in to quit smoking.)
Tommy’s Dad: Wow, six guys?! Ya know, if only three of them screw up, that’s a nice chunk of change.
Tommy: Yep.
Tommy’s Dad: So what are ya gonna do if you win?
Tommy: Buy some cigarettes.

Tommy: Ya know, they have blowjob contests in those private schools. There was a hug article in New Yorker Magazine about it.
Franco: Ya, I read it Tom. Ya, I don’t know. Maybe I’m hoping my kid has a shot at winning one of those.

Franco: Shit Sean, there must be five million broads in this city. You gotta pick Tommy’s sister?

(Talking about telling Tommy about him and Maggie.)
Sean: Ya know what? I’m gonna tell Tommy what’s going on. I gotta tell him.
Franco: Ya, well, here’s your chance, Champ. Here he comes.
Tommy: Douche bag, hey, the next time i find your scott pack where my ass belongs, your gonna find my scott pack halfway up your Goddamn colon.

Tommy: How was your chick?
Franco: Ah, she’s okay. Kinda a girl I call a firecracker. Ya know, she’s got one good bang in her and that’s it.

Colleen: It’s okay, Grandpa. Did I tell you how much Jesus loves you?
Tommy’s Dad: Ya, a couple of times. Tell Jesus to lay off, will ya? Ya know, I’m glad he loves me, but that’s how rumors get started.

Sheila: Here comes the cake. Happy Birth…
Tommy’s Dad: Shut your hole! I’m warning all of ya right now. Anyone comes up with that Happy Birthday bullshit, I’m dropping my pants, taking a leak on this cake, and walking the hell out of here.
Tommy: All right everyone, on three.

Cultural References
Tommy: I'm gonna stick this Brokeback coffee travel thing right up his Goddamn ass.

This is a reference to Brokeback Mountain, a 2005 award winning film about two homosexual cowboys in Wyoming. Since the film's debut, it has become common to see 'Brokeback' used as an adjective to describe things deemed homosexual.

It was very interesting to see the ending with Tommy walking away in slow motion as the complete bad guy after using the same ending in Devil where Tommy walks away in slow motion as the hero after saving the young girl's life. This was an excellent way to show the duality in Tommy's persona.
