Tony: What’s it like to kill a person?
Pote: I hope you never have to find out, mijo. It’s a terrible thing.

Part of taking a life is dealing with the aftermath. This is not one of your video games. This is nasty, this is dirty, it’s real and you need to see that.


You are both killers and I’m a fool for believing you both. Oh God, what did I get myself in to?


Teresa: Listen, my life is so messy right now, and I can’t be honest with you. There are things that you don’t know and I can’t see you anymore.
Eddie: What are you talking about?
Teresa: I think it’s better we stop.

Teresa: I’ve lived most of my life running from my past.
Eddie: That’s not living, that’s surviving.

Teresa: There’s only one person who profits off of us at war.

Mi tia survived life in Culiacán, she survived cancer. Dumas men fired at me at point blank range. A bullet went right through my jacket and didn’t even touch me.


Teresa: I thought we would be safe here.

Teresa: Do you think it’s weakness?
Pote: I think it’s courage but I also know that you will have to change to become the person that you’re supposed to be.
Teresa: What if that person scares me?

Her money may get us a shiny, new correctional facility much faster than we thought, where she’ll have her own private room if she survives that long.


I’d love to think that that hurricane you came in with was all about my undeniable sex appeal, unfortunately for my ego, I know better.


I’ve spent some time in your country. I know your people like to haggle but this isn’t some Tijuana flea market, Ms. Mendoza. My price is final. Now you can pay it or you can haggle with tourists over five dollars souvenirs. Your choice.


Javier: Are we crazy to want something different in this life?
Teresa: I don’t know.

Queen of the South Quotes

Look at the Justice League here. We got Chewy, Javi, even the wild man from Sinaloa.


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.
