Nobody remember forty, and ya'll niggas is giving me way too many forty degree days. What the fuck?!

Yo, uh, String, why are you so down on the phone companies, man?
STRINGER BELL
While back, I took a stroll through the pit, I saw that kid we got running things down there, uh, Poot. Now, he got the cell phone I gave him for the business, right there on his hip. But, the nigga got another cell phone that only rang when the pussy called. Now, if this no-count nigga got two cell phones, how the fuck you gonna sell any more of them motherfuckers? That's market saturation.

SLIM CHARLES
But what if they don't cop our re-up, though?
STRINGER BELL
Well, I'ma worry about that when it happen. Until then, Mr. Charles, we're going to handle this shit like businessmen, sell the shit, make the profit and later for that gangsta bullshit. [Poot raises his hand.] Yeah.
POOT
Do the chair know we gonna look like some punk-ass bitches out there?
STRINGER BELL
Motherfucker, I will punk your ass for sayin such shit!
SHAMROCK
Yo, String, Poot did have the floor, man.
STRINGER BELL
Shut the fuck up, this nigga too ignorant to have the fuckin' floor!

STRINGER BELL
I ain't strapped. I ain't involved, yo. I ain't involved in none of that gangster bullshit.
STRINGER BELL
What y'all niggers want, man? Huh? Money?
STRINGER BELL
IS THAT IT? Cause if it is, I can be a better friend to y'all alive.
OMAR LITTLE
You still don't get it, do you? This ain't about your money, bro. Your boy gave you up. That's right. And we ain't had to torture his ass neither!
STRINGER BELL
[regrettably] Doesn't seem like I could do anything to change y'all minds.
STRINGER BELL
Well, get on with it, motherfu... [Omar and Mouzone shoot him to death]

STRINGER BELL

D.C. GUY

STRINGER BELL
You right, it ain't none of your business. And if I were you, I wouldn't let a word of this mess end up in Avon's ear.
D.C. GUY
Baltimore niggas off the hook, I swear. All ya'll.

D'ANGELO
Yeah, but, Stringer, if you don't pay a nigga, he ain't gonna work for you.
STRINGER BELL
What, you think a nigga's gonna get a job? You think...you think it's gonna be like, 'Fuck it, let me quit this game here and go to college'? No, they're gonna buck a little, but they ain't gonna walk. And in the end, you gonna get respect.

D'ANGELO
Where's Wallace at? ... Where's the boy, String?
STRINGER BELL
D'Angelo, shut your mouth.
D'ANGELO
Where's Wallace? That's all I wanna know.
LEVY
Kid, you better think...
D'ANGELO
Where's Wallace? Where the fuck is Wallace? Huh? Huh? String? String? Look at me! Where the fuck is Wallace? HUH!? I don't want this Payless-wearing motherfucker representing me. I'ma get my own man. So just get back in your car and get the fuck back down south.
STRINGER BELL
A'ight, you stupid motherfucker, you made your decision.
D'ANGELO
Yeah, I made my decision. Where's Wallace at? Where the fuck is Wallace? Where's Wallace, String? String! Where the fuck is Wallace? Huh? Stringer?!
