Quotes

Sandy Williams: I can't figure out if you're a detective or a pervert.

Jeffrey Beaumont: Well, that's for me to know and you to find out.

Frank Booth: What kind of beer do you like?

Jeffrey Beaumont: Heineken.

Frank Booth: [shouting] Heineken? Fuck that shit! Pabst Blue Ribbon!

Frank Booth: Hey you wanna go for a ride?

Jeffrey Beaumont: No thanks.

Frank Booth: No thanks? What does that mean?

Jeffrey Beaumont: I don't wanna go.

Frank Booth: Go where?

Jeffrey Beaumont: For a ride.

Frank Booth: A ride! Now that's a good idea!

[repeated line]

Frank Booth: Now it's dark...

Frank Booth: You stay alive, baby. Do it for Van Gogh.

Jeffrey Beaumont: See that clock on the wall? In five minutes you are not going to believe what I've told you.

[repeated line]

Frank Booth: Fuck you, you fucking fuck!

Frank Booth: Let's fuck! I'll fuck anything that moves!

Sandy Williams: I had a dream. In fact, it was on the night I met you. In the dream, there was our world, and the world was dark because there weren't any robins and the robins represented love. And for the longest time, there was this darkness. And all of a sudden, thousands of robins were set free and they flew down and brought this blinding light of love. And it seemed that love would make any difference, and it did. So, I guess it means that there is trouble until the robins come.

Jeffrey Beaumont: You're a neat girl.

Sandy Williams: So are you... I mean, you're a neat guy.

Frank Booth: Suave! Goddamn you're one suave fucker!

Frank Booth: Baby wants to fuck! Baby wants to fuck Blue Velvet!

Frank Booth: Don't toast to my health, toast to my fuck!

Frank Booth: Let's hit the fuckin' road! We're giving our neighbor a joyride! Let's get on with it! Bye, Ben. Anyone want to go on a joyride with us? How about you, huh?

[to Dorothy]

Frank Booth: Hey, what's this? No smile for Frank? No? All right, fuck it! Let's go!

Dorothy Vallens: [to Frank] I have a part of you with me. You put your disease in me. It helps me. It makes me strong.

Frank Booth: Don't be a good neighbor to her. I'll send you a love letter,

Frank Booth: [shouting] straight from my heart, fucker! You know what a love letter is? It's a bullet from a fucking gun, fucker! You receive a love letter from me, you're fucked forever! You understand, fuck? I'll send you straight to hell, fucker!

Dorothy Vallens: What's your name?

Jeffrey Beaumont: Jeffrey

Dorothy Vallens: Jeffrey what?
