Shark Tale (2004) Poster


Martin Scorsese: Sykes



  • Sykes : Come on, snap your fin. Snap it. You're not snapping it.

    Don Lino : I'm snapping it, I'm snapping it!

    Sykes : That's okay, a lot of great whites can't do it, yo.

    Don Lino : Yo?

    Sykes : Yo, what's up?

    Don Lino : What's up with what?

    Sykes : Yo-yo-yo, yo-yo-yo, yo-yo-yo-yo...

    Don Lino : Hey, you say "Yo" one more time, and I'm gonna yo you.

    Sykes : I'm sorry.

  • Oscar : Sykes, shut up! SHUT UP!

    Sykes : Hey, that's good. That's good, I like that! Shut up, Lino! Ha! Shut up. Oh, kid, he wants to talk to you.

    Oscar : [Whispers]  No. I'm not here. I'm not here!

    Sykes : Yeah, he's right here.

    Oscar : [Sykes gives shellphone to Oscar]  Hello?

    Don Lino : [on phone with Oscar]  Shut up? Shut up? You don't tell *me* shut up, I tell *you* shut up!

    Don Lino : [hears phone dialing] 

    Don Lino : What?

    Luca : Hi, how you doing? I'll have a large pie, everything on it, anchovies, meatballs, mushrooms...

    Don Lino : Luca!

    Luca : Oh... Uh, hi, Boss! What're you doing working at a pizza joint?

    Don Lino : [shouts]  Get off the phone!

    Luca : But I'm hungry.

    [hangs up] 

    Don Lino : [sighs]  My guys are coming for you, Sharkslayer. They're going to tear you fin from fin!

  • Sykes : Now I have to pay Don Lino protection, so everything you owe me, you owe him!

    Oscar : How do you figure that?

    Sykes : Simple - the food chain!

    [Pulls out chart] 

    Sykes : On top there's Don Lino, there's me, there's regular fish...

    Oscar : And that's me!

    Sykes : No. There's plankton, there's single-celled amoebas...

    Oscar : And then me!

    Sykes : I'm getting there, I'm getting there... There's coral, there's rocks, there's whale poop, and then there's you.

    Oscar : That's messed up.

  • Sykes : [about Lenny]  Look, all I'm saying is the kid ain't exactly no killer!

    Don Lino : My Lenny is a killer, you hear me? A cold-blooded killer! Look at him!

    [Lenny wiggles around on a bar stool] 

  • Don Lino : I tell you what's what, and what?

    Sykes : What?

    Don Lino : What what?

    Sykes : What what nothin'. You said what first.

    Don Lino : I didn't say what first.

    Sykes : You said "and then what?' and I said "what?'

    Don Lino : No, I said "What, what?" as in "What, what?"


    Sykes : ...You said what first.

  • Sykes : My brother, my player, the shark-slayer!

  • Ernie : [on the phone]  Syke's Whale Wash! You get a whale of a wash and the price... eh... is really, really low, considering how good the wash is.

    Sykes : It's "oh my gosh!" "You get a whale of a wash, and the price, oh my gosh!"

    Ernie : Got it!

    [the phone rings, and Ernie answers it] 

    Ernie : Whale wash!

    Bernie : Rhymes with gosh!

    [both laugh] 

    Sykes : [chasing the brothers off]  Get out of here, you two! Go be useless someplace else!

  • Sykes : Ernie! Bernie! I want you to find the deepest, darkest hole in the ocean, and when you do, dig deeper and put him in it!

  • Sykes : [on the phone, while watching Oscar slay Lenny on TV]  I don't think you understand how huge my client is. Turn on your TV right now!

    Sykes : [still on phone and Oscar has been eaten by Lenny]  Turn off the TV! Turn off your TV!

    Sykes : [still on phone and Oscar escapes Lenny's mouth]  Turn on your TV! What are you doing turning off your TV? Turn it back on!

  • Sykes : [on the phone]  That's right, Lino! The Shark Slayer hired me as his agent! So I'm now, what I like to call, UNTOUCHABLE! And another thing - from now on you're gonna start paying ME protection!

  • Oscar : Sykes, the deal is off! That shark I killed was Don Lino's SON!

    Sykes : I know! Ain't that great?

    Oscar : Not if he finds out!

  • Sykes : Who's your Puff Daddy? Who takes care of you, huh?
