Dalton:
People who want to have a good time won't come to a slaughterhouse, and we've got entirely too many troublemakers here..Too many uhh, 40 year old adolescents, felons, power drinkers, and trustees of modern chemistry...It's going to change.

Hank:
Yeah, that sure sounds great...but a lot of the guys who come in here we can't handle one-on-one, even two-on-one.

Dalton:
Don't worry about it; all you have to do is follow 3 simple rules: One, never underestimate your opponent..expect the unexpected; Two, take it outside, never start anything inside the bar unless it's absolutely necessary; and Three...be nice.

Hank:
[Incredulously] Come on!!

Dalton:
If somebody gets in your face and calls you a cocksucker I want you to be nice

Hank:
[With resignation] Ok

Dalton:
Ask him to walk, be nice. If he won't walk, walk him, but be nice. If you can't walk him, one of the others will help you and you will both be nice. I want you to remember that it's the job, it's nothing personal.

Steve:
Being called a cocksucker isn't personal?

Dalton:
No, it's two nouns combined to elicit a prescribed response.

Steve:
What if somebody calls my Mama a whore?

Dalton:
Is she?

[everybody snickers]

Dalton:
I want you to be nice... until it's time... to not be nice

Bouncer:
So, uh, how are we supposed to know when that is?

Dalton:
You won't. I'll let you know. You are the bouncers, I am the cooler. All you have to do is watch my back and each others... and take out the trash!
