Natural Born Killers (1994) Poster

Quotes

Old Indian: Once upon a time, a woman was picking up firewood. She came upon a poisonous snake frozen in the snow. She took the snake home and nursed it back to health. One day the snake bit her on the cheek. As she lay dying, she asked the snake, "Why have you done this to me?" And the snake answered, "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake."

Mickey: It's fate, you know. Nobody can stop fate, nobody can.

Mickey: It's just murder. All God's creatures do it. You look in the forests and you see species killing other species, our species killing all species including the forests, and we just call it industry, not murder.

Mickey: Mister rabbit says, "A moment of realization is worth a thousand prayers."

Mickey: I realized my true calling in life.

Wayne Gale: What's that?

Mickey: Shit, man, I'm a natural born killer.

Dr. Emil Reingold: Mickey and Mallory know the difference between right and wrong; they just don't give a damn.

[bleeding together over a river]

Mallory: We'll be living in all the oceans now.

Mickey: You'll never understand, Wayne. You and me, we're not even the same species. I used to be you, then I evolved. From where you're standing, you're a man. From where I'm standing, you're an ape. You're not even an ape. You're a media person. Media's like the weather, only it's man-made weather. Murder? It's pure. You're the one made it impure. You're buying and selling fear. You say "why?" I say "why bother?"

Mickey: [Wayne is pleading for his life] This is not about you, you egomaniac. I kinda like you. But if we let you go, we'd be just like everybody else. Killing you and what you represent is a statement.

[after beating the hell out of the guy at the diner]

Mallory: How sexy am I now, huh? Flirty boy! How sexy am I now?

[after shooting a man she'd been having sex with]

Mallory: That the worst fuckin' head I ever got in my life! Next time don't be so fuckin' eager!

Mickey: Let me tell you something, this is the 1990's, alright? In this day and age a man has to have choices, a man has to have a little bit of variety.

Mallory: What are you talking about, "variety"? Hostages? You wanna fuck some other women now? Is that what you're talking about, Mickey?

Mickey: The whole world's comin' to an end, Mal!

Mallory: I see angels, Mickey. They're comin' down for us from heaven. And I see you ridin' a big red horse, and you're driving them horses, whippin' 'em, and the're spitting and frothing all 'long the mouth, and the're coming right at us. And I see the future, and there's no death, 'cause you and I, we're angels...

Mickey: I love you, Mal.

Mallory: I know you do baby, and I've loved you since the day we met.

Mickey: We're not killing anybody on our wedding day.

Mickey: At birth, I was cast into a flaming pit of scum forgotten by God.

Wayne Gale: Wait! Don't Mickey and Mallory always leave one person alive to tell the tale?

Mallory: We are...

MalloryMickey: Your camera!

Druggist: I'm the only clerk left! I'm the only clerk left!

Mickey: You're forgetting one thing...

Druggist: W-what's that?

Mickey: If I don't kill you, what is there to talk about? You fuckin' squid!

[shoots him]

Mallory: You killed life!

Mickey: You know, the only thing that kills the demon... is love.

Mickey: Baby... by the power invested in me, as God of my world... I pronounce us husband and wife.

Mallory: You made my shitlist!

Mallory: I don't think I'm gonna make it. I feel so cold.

Mickey: You're gonna make it, Mal. Get mad.

Mickey: The media is like the weather, only it's man-made weather.

Mickey: Turn left? Turn left to what you stupid bitch?

Mallory: You stupid bitch? You stupid bitch? You stupid bitch? Mickey, that's what my father used to call me! I thought you'd be a little more creative than that!

Mallory: You make every day feel like kindergarten.

Son: What the hell is that?

Father: A bitch out of hell, son. Take a run at her kiddo!

Reporter: Do you have anything to say to your fans?

Mickey: You ain't seen nothin' yet.

Dwight McClusky: Just how far do you think you're gonna get?

Mickey: Right out the front door!

Dwight McClusky: THAT WILL *NEVER HAPPEN!*

Mickey: It IS happenin'.

Dwight McClusky: I will personally hunt you down, blow the head off your fucking whore wife, AND PLANT YOUR SICK ASS IN THE GROUND ALL BY MYSELF!

Mickey: Another day, perhaps, but not today!

Mickey: Right now I'd go down on a Lawman for a gallon of gas.

Dwight McClusky: Mickey & Mallory Knox are without a doubt the most twisted depraved pair of shitfucks it has ever been my displeasure to lay my god damn eyes on. I tell you these two motherfuckers are a walking reminder of just how fucked up this system really is.

Ed Wilson: Don't think! You're a fucking idiot! Who am I now, the bad guy? Did I ask you to fuck my friends?

Mickey: Uh, aloha? Chief? Yeah, uh... rattlesnake took a chunk outta us a few miles back... me and my wife are pretty sick - could be dyin,' you never can tell about these things, so... how's about you ungluein' your fat ass from that boob tube and gettin' us some snakebite juice. Pronto.

[repeated line]

Mickey: Hey, Jack! Mickey's back!

Mickey: You can't hide from your shadow.

[aiming Jack's gun at his head]

Mallory: You still like me now, Jack?

[she pulls the trigger]

[the cops have Mickey and Mallory pinned down]

Mallory: You know what I say? I say... to hell with going back to our cells. Let's go out there, and run down the stairs, and go out in a hail of bullets. And then we'll die! And then we'll really be free.

Mickey: That's poetry. But we'll do that when all else fails.

Wayne Gale: What about your father how did he die? You were only ten years old and there's a lot of speculation.

Mickey: I didn't kill my father and I don't want to talk about it!

[starts to get angry and makes as if to jump up]

Mickey: .

Dwight McClusky: [leaps to his feet] Hey! Hey!

Wayne Gale: [to everyone around him] It's alright! It's alright!

[turns back to Mickey]

Wayne Gale: We'll just move on to something else.

Mickey: Please let's do.

Wayne Gale: So tell me Mickey? Any regrets? I mean, three weeks, fifty people killed... not too cool Mickey.

Mickey: Fifty-two, but I don't a lot of time with regret. That's a wasted emotion.

Wayne Gale: Seriously you must have some regret. Rack your brain.

Mickey: Well, I wish that Indian hadn't got killed.

Mallory: [archive footage of the Indian's death] Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad!

Wayne Gale: [looks at some files] One of your last victims.

Mickey: Man had a rattlesnake in the corner...

Mallory: Wherever we go, whatever happens, Mickey, when I look up at the stars, I'll know you'll be lookin' up at the same ones.

Mickey: Same ones, baby

Mallory: You make everyday feel like kindergarten.

Mickey: Mal...

Mallory: Yes?

Mickey: Will you marry me?

Mallory: Of course I'll marry you! I've been waiting for you to say that for so long. But where are we gonna get married?

Mickey: Right here, Mal. This is our church.

Mallory: I do. For all eternity. 'Til you and I die, and die, and die again. 'Til death do us part.

Mickey: [pointing a shotgun at Homolka] Ok, DROP IT!

Deputy Sheriff Duncan Homolka: [drops a donut]

Mickey: The GUN, goddammit!

Mallory: I do. 'Til you and I die, and die, and die again. 'Til death do us part.

Wayne Gale: I thought a bond developed between us!

Mickey: No. Not really. You're scum, Wayne; you did it for RATINGS. You don't give a shit about us or anybody else except yourself; that's why nobody gives a shit about YOU. That's why "helicopters" were not "deployed."

Wayne Gale: Their subsequent trial turned into a sick, pathetic circus. The trial of Mickey and Mallory Knox was SUCH an event, that it made the crime spree that preceded it pale by comparison. The nation caught Mickey and Mallory fire!

[to Mallory]

Jack Scagnetti: Remember the last time you got fucked? What I want you to do is close your eyes, and remember the last time Mickey gave you the high hard one. You thinking about it? Good. Well you can forget it, 'cause it's never gonna happen again. Because when they get through with all the electroshock shit they got lined up for that cocksucker, ol' Mickey ain't gonna be worth a damn.

[Guns aimed at each other]

Mickey: Looks like we got us a Mexican Standoff.

Jack Scagnetti: We've had this day from the beginning, huh, Mickey? Now slide that shotgun over here. Put your hands on your head and your head against the floor!

Mickey: Or what, you'll wound me? I could blow you in half and you know it.

Jack Scagnetti: I never wounded anything in my life. I got you locked right between the eyes, Mickey. I've had you locked from the jump, you phony!
