Prem: Put the poor man out of his misery, ladies and gentleman.
[in police station]
Police Inspector: My 5 years old daughter can answer that question, but you couldn't.
That's strange for a millionaire genius.
What happened?
Your accomplice nip out for a piss?
Jamal: How much is pani puri at Harish's stall in Chowpatty?
Police Inspector: What?
Jamal: Pani puri, one plate, how much?
Srinivas: 10 rupees.
Jamal: Wrong, 15 since Divali.

~Jamal

[in container, that was heavy rain]
Young Salim, to Young Latika: Piss off!!!
She'll have the security guard onto us.
Young Jamal: Let her in.
She could be the third musketeer.
Young Salim: I'm the elder of this family, and I say she's not coming in, okay?
In any case...
We don't even know the name of the third bloody musketeer.
[Jamal getting sleep, but awake by nightmare and the rumbling thunder,
while Salim still hard to close his eyes.
Jamal see Lativa still waiting in the rain]

Understand?

Young Jamal: I just need Maman to like my singing, and we're in the money.
Big money, Latika.
Young Latika: And then what?

But the swimming pool, as you can see,
was completed on schedule in top-class fashion.

good-for-nothing Indian beggars.

Middle Jamal: And this, lady and gentleman, is the burial place of Mumtaz.
Female Tourist: How did she die?
Middle Jamal: A road traffic accident.

[groping Jamal's face]
So, you're a big guy now, Jamal. I'm happy for you.
Middle Jamal: I'm sorry, Arvind.
Middle Arvind: You got saved, my friend. I wasn't so lucky.
That's the only difference.

[in the rest room]
Prem: Guy from the slums  becomes a millionaire overnight.
Do you know who's the only other person who's done that?
Me...
I know what it feels like.
I know what you've been through.
Jamal, in the toilet: I'm not going to become a millionaire.
I don't know the answer.
Prem: You've said that before, yeah...
Jamal: No, really... this time I don't...
Prem, washing his hand in sink: Come on, you can't take the money and run now.
You're on the edge of history, kid.
Jamal: I don't see what else I can do.
Prem: Maybe it's written, my friend.
Jamal: I don't know...
Prem: I just get some kind of karmic feeling you're going to win this.
Trust me, Jamal, you're going to win.
[Prem leaving the rest room and Jamal got out from the toilet.
While he wash his hand in sink, 
he sees "B" written on the mirror]

Prem: So, are you ready for final question?
For 20 million rupees?
Jamal: No. But maybe it's written, no?

Police Inspector: It is bizarrely plausible, and yet...
Jamal: Because I'm a slumdog, a chai wallah... I'm a liar, right?
Police Inspector: Most of you are.
But you are not a liar, Mr. Malik, that's for sure.
You're too truthful.

Did Jamal Malik, an uneducated 18 years-old boy from the slums of Mumbai,
win one crore by fair means or foul play?
In the crown around me, there is an even bigger question,
will he be back tonight to play for another 20 million rupees?

For God's sake, hold on to this [handed the cellphone to Latika]
And for what I've done, please forgive me.
[open the door and let Latika go] Have a good life.
~Salim
