When Ivan comes to the bar at the beginning of the movie trying to close it early, Doc tells him to "Make like a tree and get the fuck out of here!" The brothers had just been making fun of him for getting his proverbs mixed up, however, this line works as it is a more profane reference to a quote from Back to the Future (1985), in which Biff tells Marty the same thing, only without "fuck."

Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, the glory, now and forever. Amen.

My son called me from Korea (Army Medic) to tell me that I had to see this movie. He brought it home with him on leave and we watched it together and he was absolutely right. It was "off the chain" as he says. It was so different from the standard fare that only substitutes different faces into the same tired story lines. We love it and I am now buying my own copy. I recommend it to any one that I know is a discriminating movie lover. I can't wait for the sequel. By the way , I'm a 43 year old mom of three so it's not just for 20 something males. Willem Dafoe was over the top but absolutely perfect for this movie. My husband hates movies and any TV that doesn't have a ball and a score, but he actually loved this movie too. It kept him on the edge of his seat and he actually laughed out loud several times.
