Lloyd: Tapes are not going to be enough.

Billie Jean: What do you mean?

Lloyd: I mean they don't have to give you the money, they'll just hunt you down and catch you. Cops don't have to bargain with you, you don't have anything they want. Unless you offer them a trade.

[starts tying himself up]

Ophelia: Whatever is that boy doing?

Putter: It's a trick, I saw it on TV.

Billie Jean: What kind of trade?

Lloyd: I'm going to be your hostage, then they have to reason with you. I'm your guarantee.

Putter: Like when you buy a car.

Ophelia: That's a warranty.

Putter: Is that a boy or a girl?

Lloyd: Girl, Joan of Arc. She dressed up as a man and led the French in fighting the English. She heard voices, 'stop being a peasant', 'France needs you', 'the truth needs you'. And she won, she beat the English, but then...

Putter: Then what?

Lloyd: The French, burnt her, alive!

Billie Jean: I'm not a liar, I'm not a thief, and neither is my brother.

Binx: [cuts in] Hello, ma!

Billie Jean: [shoves Binx aside] Sorry, that is him. Mom, I don't know when we'll be comin' home, but we love you. I know people are making up stories about us. Don't you believe them. As for you, Mr. Pyatt. You are so sleazy.

Putter: [cheers on camera] YEA!

Billie Jean: You think you can do anything you want and then lie about it and we just have to take it, because what are we? Just a bunch of kids. Well not this time. From now on we're doin' this our way. No lyin', no cheatin', fair is fair.

Kid #1 in Crowd: [at electronics store watching TV] Alright!

Billie Jean: $608 dollars for the scooter your son trashed. That's what you owe, and we're NOT turnin' ourselves in til we get it. Fair is fair! We didn't start this, we didn't mean it to happen, but we're not givin' up til you pay. FAIR IS FAIR!

Interview Girl: She's a rebel, and uh... I'm gonna personally... I think they're picking on her because she's a girl, and I think that's disgusting.

News Announcer: Well there you have a woman's perspective...

Interview Teen: I thought it was awesome, this guy was chasing Billie Jean up the stairs, she turnd around and kicked him in the nuts and kept on running, I thought it was hilarious. Billie Jean if you're out there, I love you!

Donna Davy: Binx, sulking will not get you that bike back. Spent all that money, and now here you are broken-hearted.

Billie Jean: It wasn't his fault.

Ringwald: [smiling] Yes sir I believe they did.

Pyatt: Little more, little less, just take the money.

Billie Jean: For my troubles? Or to keep my mouth shut? Or maybe for a few minutes in the upstairs room of your store. How much is that worth to you, Mister Pyatt?

Pyatt: Nobody forced you up there, you knew exactly what you were doing.

Billie Jean: But what about our lessons? Pay as you go, earn as you learn. What were you going to teach me, Mr. Pyatt? And you said I was gonna love it, love being touhed by a man like you.
