Lust in the Dust (1985)
Rosie Velez: Always the little ones got something to prove.

Rosie Velez: Marguerita?
Marguerita Ventura: The customers call me "Marguerita". The territory calls me "Marguerita". My real close friends call me "Miss Ventura."

Marguerita Ventura: You bitch!
Rosie Velez: Ever since I came here, you've done nothing but treat me like shit. Who the hell do you think you are? Yeah, I was a dance hall girl, but what makes you so high and mighty? You own a whorehouse! A whorehouse!... and with only three whores in it. One of them is just a senile old cow.
[aside to Big Ed]
Rosie Velez: No offense, honey.
[back to Maguerita]
Rosie Velez: And the other one's so new at it, she doesn't know which end to use. So what does that make you? The only whore in Chili Verde. Yeah, I came here for the gold, because I've been poor all my life.
Marguerita Ventura: You've got it all wrong, honey. You've been cheap all your life.
Rosie Velez: Cheap?

[angry]
Rosie Velez: ... and then you can drop dead, you miserable hunk of shit!

Rosie Velez: Where are you doing? Don't leave me out here, mister! Oh, I beg you! My ass is on its last legs! I'll die! I've got nothing to eat!
[Abel looks up, and shoots in the air. A dead vulture crashes to earth]
Rosie Velez: [sarcastic] Thanks.

Rosie Velez: No! Stop! Wait! I'm a...

[Rosie nods yes]
Hard Case Williams: That DOES make a difference. Then I'LL go first.
[Hard Case starts sneezing violently]
Hard Case Williams: I've had carnal knowledge of 215 women and two goats...
Chang, Hard Case Gang: And the chicken?
[Hard Case makes a so-so gesture]

Rosie Velez: I spy with my little eye something that begins with "C". Give up? CHILE VERDE!

Hard Case Williams: Being a leader of men is a very solitary business, miss. So I've been very concerned about my men's libidos until you so conveniently came on the scene.
Rosie Velez: I'm afraid I don't understand, sir. Are you speaking English? Eso es ingles?
Hard Case Williams: Poon tang! Poon tang! Is that any clearer little lady? My curse is that I've received the education befitting the son of a Boston preacher, may he rot in hellfire. But I do believe that you get the thrust of my meaning. My men are as horny as jackrabbits.

Maguerita Ventura: [at Rosie, who is scrubbing the floor] Finished, Honey?

Rosie Velez: Oh, yeah. Well I ain't going nowhere until I find that gold that everybody's been so careful *not* to mention.
Marguerita Ventura: You think you can just breeze into town and dig it up, huh? Buena suerte. Some of us have been looking for it for *years*.
Rosie Velez: [snidely] You can tell.

Marguerita Ventura: [insinuating Rosie killed Red Dick] So... that only leaves *one* person.
Rosie Velez: Don't look at me; I slept like a log.
Marguerita Ventura: Why not? You look like one.

Rosie Velez: Oh well. Maybe he'll be back tomorrow. After all, tomorrow *is* another day.
