  • Earl McGraw: Well, it's been one long goddamn hot miserable s**t-ass f**kin' day every inch of the way.
  • Sex Machine: So what's your name, darlin'?
    Kate Fuller: Kate. What's yours?
    Sex Machine: Sex Machine, pleased to meet you.
  • Seth Gecko: All right, vampire killers... let's kill some f**king vampires.
  • Seth Gecko: Everybody be cool. YOU - be cool.
  • Pete Bottoms: Look, he comes in here everyday. We bullshit, and he's used my bathroom about a thousand times. If I said no this time he'd know somethin' was up.
    Seth Gecko: Okay, I want him out of here, in his car, and down the road or you can change the name of this place to Benny's World of Blood.


  • When Jacob Fuller is walking through the bar with the shotgun cross, he is reciting the Ezekiel speech from Pulp Fiction.
  • Salma Hayek plays a stripper from hell. Later in Dogma she plays a stripper from heaven.
  • This is one of three movies directed by Robert Rodriguez that feature the tattooed tough guy, Danny Trejo. He was also in Desperado and Spy Kids. In all three movies, his character had a "knife" name: Navajas in Desperado (Navajas is Spanish for "knives", which his character used as throwing weapons), Razor Charlie in From Dusk til Dawn, and Isador "Machete" Cortez in Spy Kids.
  • Tom Savini, who plays Sex Machine, portrayed a Motorcycle Raider in George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead.
  • The exchange involving Kate's line, "What's in Mexico?" and Richie's response "Mexicans" is from The Wild Bunch.
