Give me a job, I just can’t sit around here. Put me to work, please.


Javier: I’ll answer to Teresa not you, cabron.
Pote: No, pendejo, you answer to me. I brought you here from Mexico. I trusted you with her. Don’t make me regret that.

George: My Daddy always used to say, God invented liquor for nights like this.
Teresa: You saved my life, George.
George: No, you’ve got that backward. I’ve been off my game but you didn’t give up on me.
Teresa: I can’t buy what you give me, trust.
George: That being said, I ain’t exactly wired to be Costner to your Whitney and tracking shipments ain’t exactly floating my boat.

George: Before I forget, I want to say thanks.
Birdie: For what?
George: I was drowning, you threw me a line.

Boaz: Sinaloa should have been ours. It still could be.
Javier: You want to move on Teresa’s business?
Boaz: Teresa’s only worried about expanding into the east coast. She’s taken her eyes off the rest of the business. We’d just be there to pick up the pieces. Think about it, primo.

Javier: I don’t forget anything, like when you killed your brother. When you got your own son killed.
Boaz: Stop talking out of your ass.
Javier: Shoot. Come on, asshole. Do it, asshole! If I had stayed in Mexico you would have killed me too. I’m not like you. Thank God for that.
Boaz: Fine. I’m saving a bullet for the bird man.

Only gringos would sit around all day watching birds.


You know the one thing I can’t figure out, primo? Why are you here? We were kings in Mexico, you gave all that up to come work for Teresa? Now you’ve got your head so far up her ass I can’t tell where you start and she ends.


Tony: Who was that?
Kelly Anne: I don’t know but something tells me it’s the big bad wolf.

Once this prison’s complete we’ll do a clean sweep of the city. Ms. Mendoza, Dumas, and all the rest of the riff-raff in our city will forever after call this home.

Judge LaFayette

Sometimes life can get real dark and it can get hard to tell the difference between reality and a nightmare. You know I have nightmares too. I’ve been sober for six months and I keep dreaming that I relapse and it feels very real. You see, I got a second chance at life just like you did but we’re still trying to figure out how to run away from our past as we’ll do anything to do it. Close your eyes and envision something different but then your eyes open and we’re still stuck with ourselves. So every morning I wake up and I pray to my higher power for help to accept the things I can’t change and for courage to change the things I can. You can’t run away from your past, okay. It’s a part of you, but the darkness, the nightmares, you’ve got to lock that away, cause it isn’t real and it’s only going to hurt us if we let it.

Kelly Anne

Pote: It’s a la maldición. A curse.
Teresa: It’s a declaration of war.

Queen of the South Quotes

I want you to know that killing you is an honor for me. That's why I chose to kill you the way you killed La Mancha. That's what I call killing with class, with elegance. The end of your days, my friend.


I checked the car for GPS trackers. It's clean, for now. There's an old saying, the fish only sees the bait, never the hook. I know you lied to me about your car overheating, Teresita. Whatever you're hiding, it better be worth it.
