Quotes

Jack Mason: [Aiming the gun at Burns] BANG! Game over.

[Unloads the gun and discards the bullets. Drops the gun and starts walking away]

Burns: [Burns gets up, picks up the gun, sees one bullet and loads it] It's my lucky day. Hey, Mason!

Jack Mason: Burns, there's something you should always do when you find a gun.

Burns: [Close up of gun, camera pulls in tight: we see the barrel is obstructed] Say goodbye.

[Burns fires - the gun explodes, killing Burns instantly]

Jack Mason: ALWAYS check the barrel.

[Walks off into distance]

Doc Hawkins: I know more about you than you even think, Mason.

Jack Mason: Probably you do, but I don't know shit about you.

Doc Hawkins: Then ask me something. Ask me anything you want.

Jack Mason: All right, how did you get that fucking scar up your eye?

Doc Hawkins: I refer to that as my birthmark. On my eighth birthday my father brought me a bulldog, a fat little bulldog. I named him Prince Henry Stout. He was strong. He would've chased my pet turkey; he would've chased a squirrel up the tree. I raised him, I trained him, I fed him, I grew him, I took care of him, I loved that dog. I loved that dog. More anything in the world I loved that dog. My father gave me a handful of cherry bombs and M-80s and said: "You're gonna train this dog to be a protector". So every Saturday afternoon I got behind a little dummy that my dad built and tossed cherry bombs and M-80s at the dog - Boom! Boom! The dog was scared at first but after awhile he got on the dummy. He got the dummy ripping apart. The head was off. Shirt was gone. So thirteen years old birthday time got me a twelve gunned shotgun. We're going hunting. I was so excited. We went out to the clearing in the woods, my dad laid his gun down, took my gun and laid it down and said: "Son, today you're gonna learn to control your emotions. You're gonna do things that some men are not able and unwilling to do. Follow me". I followed my dad, we were running this clap of trees, there was a kraal built and there was Prince Henry Stout chained in the middle of the kraal. My dad took out of pocket full cherry bombs, put them in my hand and said: "Get in the kraal, here's a lighter; I want you to light those cherry bombs and throw them at the Prince. You're gonna face manhood. You're gonna fight that dog to the death. Is he gonna kill you or you're gonna kill him. Now." He was on me. He was on me like flies on shit. I had no chance. I got my arm up in between his teeth on my neck. Wop! We're down in the mud, rolled over, rolled over, the dog is fighting, biting, scratching, kicking and I'm screaming, crying, grabbing to run to get a stand up with following with my elbow on him. Here's his neck break. He's dead. He's not breathing, he's not biting. I'm covered up with blood. I stand up, wipe the blood off. I licked it. And my dad said: "Welcome to manhood!" That's why this is a birth mark.

[a pig's head has been served for dinner. Mason takes a sip of wine]

Wolfe Sr.: What do you think?

Jack Mason: It's alright. I like this. This is good!

Wolfe Sr.: Four-fifty a bottle.

Jack Mason: Four dollars fifty cents, I should be drinkin' this shit a *long* time ago!

Wolfe Sr.: Four hundred and fifty dollars!

[Mason spits out the wine in amazement]

Wolfe Sr.: Don't waste it!

[They all laugh]

Jack Mason: I could live off that for three months!

Cole: Well, you don't want to drink too much, anyway, 'cause you don't wanna be slow tomorrow!

Wolfe Sr.: No, indeed.

[Doc turns the pig's head toward Mason while making squealing noises]

Doc Hawkins: You are missing the best part, Mr. Mason. When you're eating the flesh of the pig... look into his little beady eyes. That way you will be devouring his soul.

Burns: Doc, sometimes you even scare *me*!

Doc Hawkins: Good.

[smiles deviously]

Burns: Life's true pleasures are so unpredictable. I'd say cherish the moment for it is. Observe your food, smell it, touch it, put your mind into it, and you're finally ready, consume it slowly.

Jack Mason: Hmm, you do your way, I'll do mine.
