Diane Taylor: [Diane is cuddling with Max as he is driving] Why are we going this way?

Max Cady: Better scenery.

Diane Taylor: What would you know about scenery? Or beauty? Or any of the things that really make life worth living? You're just an animal: coarse, lustful, barbaric.

Max Cady: Keep right on talkin', honey. I like it when you run me down like that.

Diane Taylor: Max Cady, what I like about you is... you're rock bottom. I wouldn't expect you to understand this, but it's a great comfort for a girl to know she could not possibly sink any lower.

Diane Taylor: [after Cady has beaten her, she prepares to leave town] You can't help me.

Charles Sievers: But I can. Now you file an assault charge and Cady'll get six months in jail.

Diane Taylor: Six months! And after that... When he walked out of this room he said... he said to consider this only a sample. And from my limited knowledge of human nature, Max Cady isn't a man who makes idle threats.

[last lines]

Max Cady: [Bowden has shot Cady and is holding the gun on him] Go ahead. I just don't give a damn.

Sam Bowden: No. No! That would be letting you off too easy, too fast. Your words - do you remember? Well I do. No, we're gonna take good care of you. We're gonna nurse you back to health. And you're strong, Cady. You're gonna live a long life... in a cage! That's where you belong and that's where you're going. And this time for life! Bang your head against the walls. Count the years - the months - the hours... until the day you rot!
