Apollonia: Will you help me?
The Kid: No.
Apollonia: Pardon me?
The Kid: Nope... Wanna know why?

The Kid: Well, for starters, you have to purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.

[after jumping in cold water, Apollonia is getting dressed and The Kid rides up to her]

The Kid: I ain't got time for your bullshit, Billy. What do you want?
Billy: This stage is no place for your personal shit, man!
The Kid: That's life, man.
Billy: Life, my ass, motherfucker! This is a business, and you too far gone to see that yet! I told you before, you're not packin' them in like you used to. No one digs your music but yourself.
The Kid: FUCK OFF!
Billy: Yeah, okay. Just like your old man.
[Kid gives Billy an offended look]
Billy: Look around you. No one's diggin' you. Oh, buddy, what a fuckin' waste. But, like father, like son.

The Kid: You can have it back later.
Apollonia: I want it back now, okay?
The Kid: Who gave it to you?
Apollonia: A person.
The Kid: Male or female?

The Kid: [stops and turns around] You're lying. I can tell just by your reaction, you're lying. So you gave it to me; it's not yours anymore.
[smiles and walks away]

The Kid: I don't care.
Jerome: It's obvious you don't have what it takes to get to the top. But just to show we're sympathetic to your problem...
[throws tickets to Kid]
Jerome: ... here's two tickets to tonight's show. Enjoy.
[walks off, then pokes his head back in the door]

[blow kiss]

Graffiti Bridge (1990)
The Kid: [after singing a fake fanfare when Morris arrives at the club] The King has arrived!
[everyone laughs]

[first lines]
The Kid: Are there really angels, or are they just in our minds? It all comes out in the wash... in time.

The Kid: [pursuing Morris, Jerome and Aura] Pull over, boy!
Jerome: Man, look! The fool's following us! Rat patrol!

Aura: Have you ever been to Morris' club? It's really nice.
The Kid: On the outside, it's really nice. It's the inside I got a problem with.

The Kid: Maybe what I need is a sign. A green light that says, "It's okay. It's okay to continue. Somebody's up there listening." But it' hard to see green...
[paints a green streak on his wall]
The Kid: ... when there's so much blue.
[paints a blue streak over the green]

Aura: C.
The Kid: [draws two legs]
Aura: D.
The Kid: [draws two arms, a smile on the head, and fills in the four spaces with the letters M-I-N-E. Points to Aura, then points to the word "mine"]
Aura: No, baby...
[slowly raises her arm and points to the sky]
Aura: ... His.
