Heat (1995), Michael Mann

Vincent: So you never wanted a regular type life? 
Neil: What the fuck is that? Barbeques and ballgames? 
Vincent: Yeah. 
Neil: Regular type life, like your life? 
Vincent: My life? No.. no, my life's a disaster zone. I got a stepdaughter so 
fucked up because her real father's this large-type asshole. I got a wife, we're 
passing each other on the down-slope of a marriage — my third — because I 
spend all my time chasing guys like you around the block. 
That's my life. 
Neil: A guy told me one time, "Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are 
not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner." 
Now, if you're on me and you gotta move when I move, how do you expect to 
keep a... a marriage? 
Vincent: That's an interesting point. What are you a Monk? 
Neil: I have a woman. 
Vincent: Yeah, what do you tell her? 
Neil: I tell her that I'm a salesman. 
Vincent: So, if you spot me comin' around that corner...
You just gonna walk out on that woman? 
Neil: That's the discipline.
