The Boys Club (1996)
Eric: This is the rashest thing that's ever happened to us before.
Kyle: I don't know what are we even talking about this for?
Brad: Why don't we just go home?
Eric: The guy's a fucking fugitive, man.
Brad: Great. I hate this, you realize that?
Eric: What? Who do you hate?
Brad: Yeah, hilarious. The guy said it's the police they're after. So why don't we just not do this, okay? Are you even listening to me?
Kyle: Look at this thing.
[Kyle, Brad and Eric see a old car]
Brad: What does it say about him? I guess he was a little bit disappointed.
Kyle: C'mon he's a cop Brad, we got to help him.
Brad: We don't... we don't even know the guy, I mean, we might be accomplices. Kyle, the guy's been shot. He needs real medical attention, I mean we could have a real doctor go down there and no one would know the difference.
Eric: What? Look you heard what he said right? The only thing he's got is us. Us three, our shack, our fucking shit, okay? Alright? Let's go Kyle.
[They start to push the car]
Eric: One, two, three.
[Brad stops pushing the car]
Kyle: This doesn't have to be a big deal Brad, we pushed the car so what?
Eric: Here we go, Bradley, are you in or are you out? Hun?
Liquor Store Manager: I said you'll have to leave or we'll call the police.
Kyle: Oh, relax okay?
Liquor Store Manager: That's it Barney, call the police.
Eric: Yeah, Barney cause you got first big guy? Hey ah, do you like this? *Points to the bottle of wine*
Liquor Store Manager: Put the bottle back, sir.
Luke Cooper: They're good guys, but no one cares. Your friends, they don't care, they're good guys but they really don't care if you're a pilot. Your school they don't care, your family, it sounds like they want you to fail, so why care about them, why care what they think?
Kyle: I don't know.
Luke Cooper: No one cared about me when I grew up; I can tell you that. You know what I learned about the world? You do unto others, you eat what you kill and that's what life is.
Kyle: You're not a cop are you?
Luke Cooper: Your friends say that?
Kyle: No, no one just... just me kinda.
Kyle: [after Megan runs out of the clubhouse because Luke tried to sexually intimidate her] Megan!
Megan: Get away from me!
Kyle: Megan, stop please!
Megan: Go back to your pig friends Kyle!
Kyle: Look, I'm so sorry, I don't know how...
Megan: You just stood there! You didn't do anything! I should call the cops for that!
Kyle: No, no, no! You can't call the cops! I know we deserve it!
Megan: You know what? Hell, my friends were right about you. You're a big loser like your whole family!
Kyle: [Kyle gasps] Megan! I don't know what that was! I...
Megan: Fuck off, Kyle!
Kyle: [shouting to Eric, Brad and Luke] You guys happy now?
Kyle: Did anything come?
Kyle's Dad: Like what?
Kyle: Dad, the test results, whether I got in, It's coming any day.
Kyle's Dad: Starting your line pilot exam.
Kyle: [Scoffs] Yeah, maybe.
Kyle's Dad: Well, I pulled double-down at the hanger and I come home and I see that none of ya's has even picked up, uh, even a finger to help me out here but that's okay, I'm used to that. But unless your school takes monopoly money, your working for me this summer, boy. You uh, wanna lean about air planes, I'll teach ya about air planes, you can start with the engines.
Jake: [Jake drives up in his car] Beep Beep. You going home?
[he lights a cigarette]
Kyle: Dickhead friend ripped us off. Tell him to give us our booze back.
Jake: Simon, give these children their alcoholic beverages back.
Simon: Catch, boys.
[Simon throws the beer over the car, it hits the gravel and shatters]
Jake: I did my part. Listen, tell daddy I'm not gonna be home for dinner cause uh, he's on the rag. 'Kay?
Kyle: Yeah well, I'm not going home either.
Jake: Whatever. That's a good idea.
[Jake puts his fist out for Kyle to fist-bump him, to which Kyle responds]
Jake: Let's motor.
Kyle's Dad: Well, whats your problem?
Kyle: Guess what? Congratulate me.
Kyle's Dad: [scoffs] We've talked about that about twenty times didn't we?
Kyle: Wrong. They didn't accept me. But you didn't know that, did you? You didn't even read it did you?
Kyle's Dad: Kyle, I just didn't want you to be disappointed.
Kyle: Oh, Jesus, thank you fucking so much, thank you!
Kyle's Dad: Hey! You be careful, mister.
Kyle: You were so sure right, Dad? I almost got in. They want me to take the test again. Guess that never happened to you, huh?
Kyle's Dad: Kyle?
Jake: Ya know, you're like a professional fucking asshole!
[Kyle gets on his bike and takes off]
Kyle's Dad: Kyle? Come back. Kyle?
Jake: Just keep on going, Kyle!
Kyle's Dad: While he does that you get roughed up a little bit is that okay?
Jake: You big man? What you gonna shove me around? Huh, c'mon you think I fucking care?
Kyle's Dad: Oh, what?
Jake: [Jake tries to sound like Bruce Lee] C'mon! Lets go!
[Jake tries to sound like Bruce Lee again]
Eric: No, he's a fucking cheese sandwich. I mean, he sucks about this, he suck's about that, he suck's about everything!. And now the bullets! He can't even protect himself!
Kyle: He isn't a cop eh? Yeah, he told me.
Kyle: Don't tell Brad.
Eric: He told you?
Eric: [muttering] Oh, we're in shit.
Eric's Father: Eric, come over here please?
Officer Cole: You too sir?
Eric: Dead, we're dead, we're diffidently dead, we're dead, we're dead.
Kyle: Okay, what are we gonna do?
Eric: We're gonna say it was as stupid as hell right?
Brad: Kyle! Kyle, I am not going back there!
Eric: Kyle! The fuck happened? Where's the fucking car?
Brad: Shut up! Kyle, are you okay?
Eric: We're getting a car! My mom's car! We'll get my mom's car!
Brad: Shut up!
Eric: We'll fucking get my mom's car!
Eric: [to Brad] He's gonna kill him, asshole!
Brad: Yeah! He's gonna kill all of us, asshole! Do you understand?
Kyle: Guys! I'm just trying to think okay?
Eric: You weren't there! He fuckin' shot em!
Kyle: [Yelling] Guys I'm trying to think, okay?
Eric: What the fuck? What the fuck is happening?
Brad: That's it! I'm calling 911. We're getting the cops in here and I'm...
Eric: [Eric grabs Brad] You fucking think he wants to hear that? Huh? You think he wants to hear that? You don't care if his brother dies do you?
Brad: I'm not the one who brought the bullets now did I? Fucking punk!
[Eric and Brad fight on the ground]
Brad: [to Eric] You are a very average, boring stupid guy! With a big mouth and I don't respect you and I never have!
Eric: Fuck you, you asshole!
Kyle: [to Eric] Your old man has a gun?
Eric: Yeah! He's got a box of em' in the closet!
Brad: Okay, why does somebody ask for bullets? To shoot bullets. At what? People. What are we? Five?
Eric: [Sarcastically] He's a cop, smart guy. I mean he's gotta have some sort of protection.
Brad: [scoffs] So we have to get involved in it? Look, If anybody gets hurt now, it's because of us. Or you too, because I'm out of this.
Kyle: Wait! We'll- we'll just tell him we couldn't get it.
Eric: What? Alright fine, okay I- I don't even care anymore.
Brad: Eric, I'm right this time.
Eric's Mother: Hi Eric! Back from the library?
Eric: Hi, Mom.
Kyle: [Whispers to Eric] Catching up on some school, Eric?
Eric: Yeah, well, what she doesn't know can't get us in a lot of shit!
Eric's Mother: [to Eric] Study hard?
Eric: Yeah! Chemistry is really fascinating, Mom.
Eric's Mother: We're proud of you, honey.
[Eric nervously laughs]
Kyle: Simon, over here!
Eric: Kyle, what's he-?
Kyle: Simon, you got it right?
[referring to the beer]
Simon: Yes, thank you.
Eric: Oh, big surprise. He's taking it from...
Kyle: Oh, c'mon don't be an asshole, just give us our booze!
Simon: [scoffs] What are you gonna do about it huh? You gonna fight me for it? Huh? You wanna come and get it, I'll give it to you huh? Come and get it!
[Simon pushes Kyle]
[Talking to Brad]
Simon: What about you? What are you gonna do about it?
Brad: [Mutters to Kyle and Eric] Let's go.
Kyle: [while pointing the gun at Luke] Look who's in charge now! See how this works, you motherfucker?
Kyle: Not so fucking tough anymore are ya!
Eric: Kyle! Kyle! Kyle! C'mon! Kyle!
Kyle: [to Luke] Look at me! This gun's what it's all about, you filthy fuck!
Eric: [Softly] C'mon Kyle.
Luke Cooper: So what? Use it.
Eric: [to Kyle] Don't do it, man. Kyle!
Luke Cooper: Use it.
Eric: C'mon, Brad.
Brad: Kyle, Don't do this, man. Kyle.
Luke Cooper: How at this point, am I gonna shoot anybody?
Luke Cooper: No. We're just sitting around and talking. So why have a loaded and cocked gun? You push this and out pops the cylinder.
Kyle: Then you use the ejector rod, right?
Luke Cooper: Very good. You use the ejector rod. But the most important thing I wanna teach you boys, is that you never *ever* point a gun at *anyone* or yourself even if you think it's unloaded, you don't look don't the barrel when your cleaning it you just don't do it. But for me it's a little different.
[Luke cocks the gun and points it to his head]
Luke Cooper: I'll do it. Cause I *know* that there is no bullets in this gun. I just know it. What are they gonna do? Pop into the gun out of nowhere? Just by fuckin' magic? No. So I'm not scared. Cause it's bullshit.
[Luke pulls the trigger, the gun doesn't go off, and Luke smiles]
Luke Cooper: Cause it's an empty gun. Huh. that's an example of what not to do. I did it this once to prove a point.
Luke Cooper: [Luke is talking on Kyle's Dad's phone] I know where I am. What are you telling me? Kyle! Come out here for a second! What? That was along time ago! Oh, gimme a break! Wait a second.
Luke Cooper: [to Kyle] I'm thinking tonight. Can you help me?
Kyle: Yeah, sure.
Eric: [Inside the clubhouse] It had to look like a break in, Brad. I mean what was he supposed to do?
Brad: Yeah, but your own dad's car?
Eric: Oh, fuss...
Kyle: So- whats your point?
Brad: I don't know its just- it's weird. It's something Jake would do.
Kyle: Jake didn't do it, I did it. He pissed me off. Fuck off Brad, I don't care.
Eric: Hey, hey, relax okay, guys? Alright?
Luke Cooper: [Luke is outside talking on the phone distantly] I've had a radio all day, I haven't done it. Fuck you. Wait, it's the battery. Can you hear me? okay, fuck you. Now you hear me clear that time? Listen, now your cutting off, Betty? Betty, hello?
[Luke starts banging the phone on a old tire wheel]
Luke Cooper: Fuck! Fuck! Fuck!
Brad: [to Kyle] He just trashed you dad's phone. Not kidding, about ten times.
Luke Cooper: [Luke comes inside the clubhouse] Uh, sorry this things uh, busted. You boys stay out late tonight? Just get me to the road. Can't stay here.
Kyle: No problem.
Luke Cooper: Need a road map. Gotta swipe a car. This is it, boys.
Luke Cooper: What are you doing?
Luke Cooper: Go ahead.
Megan: Oh you mean ta- yeah. Yeah, right.
Luke Cooper: We've outlined the rules. Very specifically. Women have to take off their tops. Right boys?
Megan: That's uh, pretty funny.
Eric: Go ahead.
Luke Cooper: Brad.
Megan: Okay, Hold on, are you some kind of pervert or something?
Kyle: Okay, Lets say we talk about something else, hey guys?
Eric: Yeah, yeah.
Kyle: So what do you think?
Megan: What do I *think*? Um, do you really wanna know?
Kyle: Just being a smart ass.
Luke Cooper: Just being a smart ass. Yeah, well everybody's a smart ass every now and then. We won't hold it against ya Megan. Hey, guys, I mean to not cause any trouble but, since when do we let women in here?
Eric: [Eric laughs] Good point!
Megan: I don't know, those girls on the wall there, they seem welcome enough.
Luke Cooper: They're different. Look what they're wearing.
Eric: Yep! No women. Unless those women are wearing no tops.
Megan: Eric, That's *so* mature.
Eric: Actually, Megan that's the rules. Right, guys?
Luke Cooper: Those are the rules.
Megan: Well, If those are the rules, guess I better follow the rules eh?
Eric: Now we're talking! Take it off!
Megan: [Megan teases them by lifting her shirt then quickly putting it back down] Woah!
Brad: I actually thought she was gonna do that.
Megan: Yeah, you know what? That's because you're drunk. and whoa, whoa, so am I... just shouldn't have gotten up like that.
Megan: No, you know what Kyle? I think I'd better go, okay? I'm just gonna go.
Kyle: Luke, c'mon she's my friend!
Luke Cooper: [to Megan] Sit down. Look at me, Megan. Look at me. Do you see how I'm not laughing?
Megan: Okay, um, what- what the hell's going on here?
Luke Cooper: Well, what's going on is we're gonna have a little show and you're the entertainment. Take off you're uh, top. Follow the rules.
Megan: Okay, um, are you guys just gonna sit there?
Luke Cooper: Yeah, they're just gonna sit there. They're waiting. Megan!
Kyle: C'mon, man!
Luke Cooper: You're gonna learn to like this.
[Megan slowly unbuttons her top]
Luke Cooper: Have you seen this before, Kyle? Huh? Now's you're chance. C'mon! Take it off! Take off that last button!
Kyle: C'mon, man!
Luke Cooper: That's a good girl, Megan. Isn't she a good girl, boys?
[Luke laughs and Megan runs out of the clubhouse]
Kyle: What the hell are you, man? Big secret fucking hiding place here!
[Kyle throws the news article about Luke]
Kyle: It's a fucking nightmare!
[Kyle goes out of the clubhouse to chase after Megan]
Kyle: [Jake is watching a music video on television and Kyle comes downstairs with an ashtray] Dad, home?
Jake: [laughs] You smoking, you asshole?
Kyle: Just started, quitting now.
Jake: You'd better bury those ashes deeper or dad will find em.
[Kyle goes to dump the ashtray into the garbage can but finds the pilot acceptance letter in the garbage, he opens the letter and reads it then he goes over and stands in front of the television]
Jake: What? Move, fag.
Kyle: What's this? It was in the garbage.
Jake: Hey, is that your pilot school thing? Hey, don't look at me, I didn't do it.
Eric: Yeah but after, I mean the getting shot part. Oh here.
[Eric lights Chris's cigarette]
Luke Cooper: That I don't know. It happened so fast. I'm with this dealer guy, right? I'm shaking him upside-down, shaking the change out of his pockets. You see my friend, Bruce, ya know he's a Sargent, he's my boss. Well, he looks at me so I smile. Then he pulls his .38 out of his pocket. Ping! That's I guess the mechanics of it.
Kyle: So, how'd you get away?
Luke Cooper: Through the window. I fell out. Funny, isn't it? I start shooting back, missing everything, Bruce's coming out he's gonna do the same thing again. Then I see this cab on the curb just sitting there so I jump in.
Eric: No way!
Luke Cooper: I got a few days on him anyway. But this pain is real. I tell ya.
Eric: Um, do you need painkillers?
Luke Cooper: And booze. Can you guys get rid of a car?
Luke Cooper: How old are you anyway?
Kyle: I'm fourteen.
Luke Cooper: It's just off the road, it's in a ditch. It's broken. It's just sitting there. Push it down a hill so nobody sees it.
Kyle: Sure, I guess.
Luke Cooper: Well, then do that. Don't make a mistake this is scary. You guys might not want to come back and that's fine. But just tell me no one knows about this place.
Eric: Just us.
Luke Cooper: Okay. Okay. I don't know if you've ever been in a real situation, but this is one of them. All I got right now is you guys. I need you to keep your mouth shut. You're fourteen, that's young. Have you learned to do that yet? Bunch of bored kids, huh?
