->''We don't want your forgiveness; we won't make excuses. We're not gonna blame you, even if you are an accessory, but we will not accept your natural order. We didn't come for absolution, we didn't ask to be redeemed, but isn't that the way it is? Every goddamn time. Your prayers are always answered, in the order they're received.''

* AntiHero: Parker and Longbaugh are the main characters in this tale of BlackAndGrayMorality. They're almost completely immoral, but they PetTheDog just enough to avoid becoming villain protagonists.

* AntiHero: Parker and Longbaugh are the main characters in this tale of BlackAndGrayMorality. They're almost completely immoral, but they PetTheDog just might ''juuust'' qualify, seeing as he does have enough human decency to avoid becoming villain protagonists. insist that they abandon the kidnapping, and even seems to be motivated at least ''somewhat'' by a concern for Robin and the child's safety. Even Longbaugh, when confronted with [[spoiler:the emergency c-section, takes a moment to ensure that the doctor continues working to save the baby.]] Remember that the first thing we see the heroes do are being gigantic assholes to bar patrons, and one of the early scenes in the film has one of them compare homosexuals to Muslims (and vice versa) ''quite'' negatively..
