Boaz

Pote: I used to live for the day, but now I can’t stop thinking about the future.
James: If anyone can do it, you can.
Pote: I hope so.

James: We’re working in Eastern Europe now? I thought too much money was the problem.
Teresa: The plan is to get too big to fail.

Teresa: Then we’ll buy the bank.

He’s Boaz. He might be on his best behavior right now, but he’s a ticking time bomb. It’s just a matter of time before the real Pendejo shows up and explodes.

Pote

George: Come on, now. You ain’t still steaming? This is Javier we’re talking about.

Marcel: I appreciate you, Lucien. You know I do.
Lucien: Oh, do you? I found you. Saved you from your hell of a life. Gave you an empire, and you have the gall to question my decisions.
Marcel: I sweat, bled, I even killed for you to make sure you got out clean just like you wanted. I have earned my place. I remember everything you did for me, Lucien. I do. Right now, I need you to remember this is still my business, and you do things my way.
