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.


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


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

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

Mr. Donellen

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.

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.


It takes a long time, digging a grave.


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


Father Romero: You're not listening to me! I have everything you need.
Ray: Yeah? What do I need?
Father Romero: Forgiveness. I want to forgive you. Admit what you did. Come with me, right now, to the chapel, and confess. Accept God, and you and I will forget everything that came before this.

Ray: Forgive me father, for I have sinned. It's, uh, been 36 years since my last confession. I uh... [bolts from the confessional].
Father Romero: Wait, Ray! Don't Go! Prison will not help you, or your brother, only God will.
Ray: You got nothin'.
Father Romero: You believe, Ray, I know you do. You would not have hesitated at the door of a confessional if you didn't. Don't walk away from this. Repent! Repent now or face excommunication!
Ray: What?!
Father Romero: Repent now or face excommunication.
Ray: I'm the sinner? You hide and protect these men who should be fuckin' dead and I'm the fuckin' sinner?!
Father Romero: I know you feel hate:
Ray: Fuck You!
Father Romero: I know how badly he hurt you, and I know how much you loved him! [Ray beats the crap out of him]

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.

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.

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.
Ray: I don't know what the hell you're talkin' about.
Abby: Your son Conor stuck his teenage dick between his box spring and his mattress and fucked his own bed.
