Quotes

Rusty Nail: Apologize.

Fuller Thomas: No. Listen, you sick fuck, you pathetic, lonely, walkie-talkie, freak show motherfucker. You're not getting anything from me. Know why? Because I have something that's more powerful then your psychosis. It's called a volume knob, and the only thing I have to do to make you go away is to turn it counterclockwise. You got that? You copy that?

Rusty Nail: You know, Black Sheep, you really ought to get that fixed.

Fuller Thomas: Get what fixed?

Rusty Nail: Your taillight.

Fuller Thomas: Stay the fuck back, man. I've got a gun!

Ice Truck Driver: And I've got a MasterCard.

Rusty Nail: Now they know what it feels like... to be the butt-end of the joke. Your palms sweating, your face burning up. Now they know what it's like... to be the fucking punch line.

Officer Akins: So you have no idea who might have visited Mr. Ellinghouse's room last night?

Fuller Thomas: No, sir. I wish - I wish we could be more helpful, but I...

Lewis Thomas: Is he dead?

Officer Akins: Coma. You know what I'm thinkin'? I'm thinkin' that a little look-see might "refreshify" your memory.

Fuller Thomas: Takin' a look-see at what?

Officer Akins: [Visiting Hospital Heart Monitor Beeping, Ventilator Pumping] Ripped his jaw... clean off.

Sheriff Ritter: [Dumping a pile of files on the desk] That is the pain in my ass. My own personal file of ongoing shit that I got to deal with. And now, guess what? Now, I got me another one. Mr. Ronald Ellinghouse... layin' two inches from dead in my jurisdiction. Why? Because you sorry-as punks thought you'd have some fun. Fuck! I'd keep you retards in custody if I thought it would help answer... one of the hundreds of new questions I got. But, no. All you know is his damn C.B. handle. And maybe he drives a truck. Do you understand the kinds of shit I got to grapple with now... because of what you assholes did?

Sheriff Ritter: [Looking at Fuller] You! You got out of jail when? Yesterday? I want you outta here. This is like an old-fashioned western. I want you out of Wyoming before the sun goes down.
