Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)
Becky: I don't want to talk about Leroy!
Otis: Okay, we don't have to talk about him! You hungry?
Becky: Yeah.
Otis: Good, I'm hungry too. I wonder if Leroy's hungry. (laughs)

Otis: I'd like to kill somebody.
Henry: Say that again.
Otis: I'd like to kill somebody.
Henry: Let's me and you go for a ride, Otis

Henry: If you shoot someone in the head with a .45 every time you kill somebody, it becomes like your fingerprint, see? But if you strangle one, stab another, and one you cut up, and one you don't, then the police don't know what to do. They think you're four different people. What they really want, what makes their job so much easier, is pattern. What they call a modus operandi. That's Latin. Bet you didn't know any Latin, did you kid?
Otis: Big fucking deal.
Henry: What?
Otis: Nothing.
Henry: It's like a trail of shit, Otis. It's like the blood droppings from a deer you shot, and all they've got to do is follow those droppings, and pretty soon, they're going to find their deer.
Otis: Why don't you use a gun?
Henry: You can use a gun. I'm not saying you can't use a gun. Just don't use the same gun twice.

Otis: Where you going?
Henry: Nowhere - you wanna come?

Otis: Adios, motherfucker.

Henry: The most important thing is to keep moving, that way they might never catch up to you. I'm gonna have to pack up and be on the move, too, pretty soon.
Otis: Where you going?
Henry: Nowhere. You wanna come? We could be back this way in about a month.
Otis: I'm not supposed to leave the state without telling them.
Henry: So who's gonna know? As long as you show up when you're supposed to?
Otis: What if they check up on me at work?
Henry: Well, no plan is perfect.

Henry: What are you doing?
Otis: I want to watch it again.

Otis: [Otis sticks his head out the window of a moving vehicle as Henry drives, filming various women with a video camera until it hits something, busting the lens off; gets angry at Henry] Oh! Look what you did! Aw, God! Aw, Jesus! Look at it, it's ruined! Damn, Henry, you oughta look where you're driving!
Henry: Who the hell told you to stick your head out the window anyway?
Otis: You could've killed me!
Henry: Oh, that's right. Blame it on me.
Otis: Aw, this fuckin' camera!
[Otis tosses the camera out the window into the gutter, completely destroying it]
Henry: What'd you do that for?
Otis: It wasn't any good anymore.
Henry: Could've fixed it.
Otis: Shit, the lens was busted right off!
Henry: Could've fixed it!
Otis: How do you know? You a camera repairman? You should've said something.
Henry: You didn't give me a chance, Otis. You threw the fucker right out the window!
Otis: It ain't my fault it broke.
Henry: Oh, right.
Otis: [tension begins to settle] We can go back and get it if you want.
Henry: [chuckles sarcastically] Yeah.
Otis: [after a brief moment of silence] You wanna get a beer?
Henry: Not particularly.
Otis: I want a beer.
Henry: [immediately hits the brakes and reaches over Otis to open his door] If you want a beer so bad, Otis, go ahead and get one!
Otis: [snarkily] All right, I will!
[exits the vehicle, closes the door and says through the window]
Otis: See you later?
Henry: Yeah.
[Henry drives off while Otis stands there stranded in the street as he watches him]
