Some interesting quotes from the film are collected.

Mathilda: Leon, I think I’m kinda falling in love with you.

Mathilda: It’s the first time for me, you know?

Léon: [wiping himself off] How do you know it’s love if you’ve never been in love before?

Mathilda: ‘Cause I feel it.

Léon: Where?

Mathilda: [stoking her stomach] In my stomach. It’s all warm. I always had a knot there and now… it’s gone.

Léon: Mathilda, I’m glad you don’t have a stomach ache any more. I don’t think it means anything.

Léon: There was someone a long time ago. Before I came to the States. Her father didn’t want her to see me. She was from a very respectable family. Mine was, you know, not so respectable. Her dad went nuts every time she’d take off to see me.

Léon: He killed her. One shot to the head. They kept him in jail for two days. They let him go free. They said it was an accident. So, one night I waited for him. 500 feet with a lens. He also had an accident.
