It takes a long time, digging a grave.


There will be an unexpected and totally unplanned pop quiz tomorrow. You're welcome for the heads up.

Mr. Donellen

We've already killed one piece of shit priest in this place. It won't be such a chore to kill another.


That chair. You sat there. We barely knew each other. And you were broken, nowhere else to turn. I didn't refuse you, Ray, and I saved your brother's life. Repay the kindness.


Father O'Connor told me about how you lost your mother to cancer. How your sister committed suicide. About your father who was a criminal. That you had one place to turn. Your church. Your priest. Excommunication is not a punishment, it's an invitation -- to change, repent and return to full communion -- when you're ready. You've suffered enough.

Father Romero

See, you've worn the clothes so fucking long you forgot they don't belong to you. What you should do is say thank you. And get out.


Mickey: Bunchy won the fuckin' lottery, huh.
Teresa: I like to call him Brendan.
Mickey: You can call him Vladamir for all I care, as long as you treat him right. He's never loved. He's pure, so you be gentle with my boy.

Daryll: You got the money?
Mickey: Sure.
Daryll: From where?
Mickey: I'm a resourceful person.

Bunch: I know you two think that I'm not smart, and I'm weak. But it ain't true!
Ray: Look, Bunch.
Bunch: I can't help it if people lie and cheat and do bad things. I never hurt nobody.
Ray: I know, Bunch.

Terry: Do you ever blame me for O'Connor?
Ray: Why would you say that?
Terry: I heard you cryin' some nights. I knew what you were cryin' about.

Ray: You've seen the plant, Helen. It's a shithole. I'm sure the birds would be happy for a change.
Helen: Well, it is a very nice bag.

You know they'd've lost the bar without you. Thank you.


Ray Donovan Quotes

Mickey: I got a good one for ya.
Bunchy: Dad, don't.
Stan: It's alright.
Mickey: What's the difference between acne and a priest? Acne waits until a boy's 14 to come on his face.

Abby: I walked into your son's bedroom this mornin', and he was watchin' porn and fuckin' his own bed.
