Quotes from

Natalio Curro: I understand Gallardo has one more contract to fulfill - the corrida next Sunday afternoon. I predict he will make his exit in a cloud of rotten oranges and dead cats. I hold him directly responsible for the death of Nacional, and I should say so in my article tomorrow. The trouble with Gallardo is he has cats in his belly. His father was the same way. Like father, like son.
Juan Gallardo: (after Gallardo overhears him) That's the second time you've said things about my father. As for you, you've probably never been baptized.
Juan Gallardo: [Gallardo pours a bottle of wine on his head] I'll baptize you now. I christen you liar, and your second name is swine!


Juan Gallardo: [to Antonio] Well, now as my manager it'll be much easier for you to rob me!


Juan Gallardo: Carmen ceta, you're the only true one in the world.
