Boaz: Javier was my blood, not yours.
Teresa: He killed my godson. If I can wait, so can you. This isn’t a request.

If you plan on sticking around, you just need to remember that Teresa’s the boss, so next time she gives you an order, you better follow it.

A banker stole from me once. He’s no longer in business.

Teresa

Lafayette: They say the sins of the father are passed down. I wish my sins had been passed down. If Davis had been a son of a bitch, a bull, like me, he’d still be alive. But, he took after his mother, God rest her soul.
Boaz: I was angry for a long time. Then one day, I woke up at peace.
Lafayette: Peace? Not really my nature.
Boaz: I never said it lasted.
Lafayette: What took its place?
Boaz: Revenge.
Lafayette: Now that’s something I can drink to.

I’ve indulged you, Miss Mendoza. I’ve let you and all the riffraff in your organization walk around my city like you belong here, and it appears that my reward for not showing you my teeth is you forgetting your place, little lady. Well, let me tell you something, if you don’t hand over your man, I will hand you your head.

LaFayette

Queen of the South Quotes

My name is Teresa Mendoza. I am from Mexico. I was born poor, not that that's bad but take it from me, I've been poor and I've been rich. Rich is better.

Teresa

You could say that I am living proof that the American dream is alive and well.

Teresa
