The Gift (2000)
Valerie Barksdale: He got worse. I went to the store yesterday, because we was out of some things. And he got home from work early before I could get back. He was waiting with a razor strap. My legs were all cut up and I got welts the size of footballs on my back and my legs...
Annie: I feel guilty you paying me money to tell you to get away from him. You got to get help. Legal help.
Valerie Barksdale: You don't know Donnie Barksdale, Annie. He'll kill me if I leave him. He'll find me. He said he would.
Donnie: I bet you love your little children, don't you? I bet they need their mama, don't they?
Donnie: [to Annie's kids] What's your name?
Annie: [angrily] Get your ass out of my house! Don't you threaten me or my kids! Now what I do here is my buisness. And if your wife has any sense, she'll leave you so far behind, you'll never find her. Now you get out of here before I have you thrown in jail!
Donnie: I'm guilty of cheating on my wife, of being a bad husband, a bad Christian. But I ain't guilty of killing Jessica. I swear to God.
David: Didn't you tell Sheriff Johnson, that you got scratched by the stray cat, because she didn't like when you killed her.
Donnie: Yeah, but I was lying. My wife was standing right there!
David: How do I know, you're not lying now?
Donnie: I'M NOT, GODDAMMIT!
Donnie: I asked her that myself one time. She said I was the only man in town that knew how to fuck.
David: You're disgusting.
Jessica: We're through! I don't like being spied on. The only reason I'm with you is because my daddy likes you. You're a joke.
Miller Wilson: Momma, what does fuck mean?
Annie: It's a bad word for something nice.
Miller Wilson: But what does it mean?
Sheriff Pearl Johnson: Miss Wilson, I don't believe in what you do. I'll just be straight with you. Not only that, I don't like it. But, we've got to the end of the road of our investigation... and looked under every rock there is to look under... and we'd like you to tell us what you can to help us.
Buddy: You're the soul of this town, Ms Wilson, and you just need to keep doing what you are doing.
Donnie: She's a God damn witch! She's putting spells on every-damn-body in town!
Wayne Collins: Well, Mrs. Wilson, I don't pretend to be a psychologist... but err... it's obvious to me that your boy's got a lot of anger in him.
Annie: Well, umm... It's about this time last year his daddy passed away. He's still real messed up over it.
Jessica: You're not that Wilson that's a fortune teller, are you?
Annie: I don't call myself that.
Jessica: I'd love for you to read my fortune.
Annie: I'm pretty booked up.
Jessica: Do you think we'll leave happily ever after?
Jessica: What's the matter? You see something bad?
Annie: Of course not. I'm sure you'll be real happy together.
Buddy: [to Annie] For all what you done for me, I just think the world of you. You're about the only one I call a friend to me.
Buddy: You have to tell me, and you have to tell me now.
Annie: I'll tell you, hun.
Buddy: If I look into a blue diamond, and I think a negative thought, am I gonna die?
Annie: No, you're not gonna die. You're not gonna die, Buddy.
Donnie: [to Annie] You know what this is? It's a voodoo doll. I'm gonna use this voodoo doll on you. Some of your own medicine. If you don't stop seeing my wife, I'm sticking me a pin in this thing every night, till you learn to leave folks alone.
Donnie: [to Annie] Messing with the devil's gonna get you burned. Everybody knows that.
Valerie Barksdale: I really need to talk to you. Maybe you can read for me under a bridge or something.
Annie: Well, alright, I'll read for you, but you gotta start listening to me though.
Valerie Barksdale: I can't leave him. Don't you understand?
Wayne Collins: Did you know something was gonna happen to your husband?
Annie: In an ESP kind of way?
Wayne Collins: Well, I don't know if...
Annie: You don't believe in it?
Wayne Collins: I don't know. I guess I just don't believe there are any great mysteries in life. I kind of figure what you see is what you get.
Annie: Buddy, you gotta find out, hun, why you hate him so much.
Buddy: My daddy's a good man. I don't hate my dad. He was good to Mom and me. Yeah, every kid needs a hit with a belt, sometime... I mean...
Annie: Buddy, you got to try to get past this wall that you're talking about. Hun, you need to talk about your daddy.
Buddy: Why don't you tell me why I hate him. You're the good damn psychic! Huh? You're the good damn psychic!
Donnie: Buddy, you better mind your own business.
Buddy: I intend to, Donnie.
Donnie: Mother fucker! God damn it! Fuck! Mother fucker!
[points a gun at him]
Buddy: Shoot me! Shoot me! Shoot me, you mother fucker! Shoot me! Shoot me!
Annie: Ben, get your hand out of there. Oh, that's for the cake tonight, honey! What am I gonna ice the cake with?
Ben: I like icing, Momma. I like it.
Annie: I can see that, pumpkin.
Wayne Collins: Is there anything you can tell us?
Annie: I can read for you. But that's about all I can do.
Buddy: Something's bad wrong with me, and I keep thinking about that blue diamond.
Annie: My granny told me that I... I had a gift. That it runs in my family. And, she told me that I shouldn't be afraid of it. I should just always use my instinct and I'd... I'd be alright.
David: So you're swearing before this court that you didn't get your information about this tragedy from any other means than your special ability? Your "gift"?
Annie: Yes, Sir. I'm swearing that. Yes.
Valerie Barksdale: Can you see what I'm thinking? Can you see that in the cards?
Annie: What do you mean?
Valerie Barksdale: Well... I've been thinking some real bad, bad thoughts. Un-christian thoughts.
Annie: Like what?
Valerie Barksdale: Like... I'm glad that girl's dead. Jessica. She was messing around with my husband and she deserved what she got.
Annie: No one deserves that.
Valerie Barksdale: Like I said, I know it's un-Christian.
Valerie Barksdale: What? What, are you seeing something bad?
Annie: I don't know. It's unclear.
Annie: I got a warning today. I think somebody's gonna try and kill me.
David: So what do you want me to do?
Annie: I want you to reopen the case and find out who really did it.
David: There's a saying about letting sleeping dogs lie. You think you're in danger now? Look at it logically. The real danger begins if this case gets reopened and someone starts worrying that you're gonna have another one of your damn dreams.
Annie: All I know is the wrong man's in jail. I don't care how awful he is. And I helped put him there. I can't live with something like that. So you find a way to reopen this case, Sir. Or I will.
Wayne Collins: It just happened in this flash of a moment.
Annie: Oh, thank you for the peaches.
Tommy Lee Ballard: Yes, ma'am.
Annie: So how you been?
Tommy Lee Ballard: Oh, pretty good, I reckon.
Annie: You had a health problem since I saw you last?
Tommy Lee Ballard: Ma'am?
Annie: Have you been sick.
Tommy Lee Ballard: Back's been hurting a little.
Annie: No, no, it's not your back. You been bleeding somewhere?
Sheriff Pearl Johnson: Ma'am... Buddy Cole is dead. He hanged himself in his shower room six pm this evening.
Annie: What I'm seeing is a brick rail fence and a pond. I can smell flowers.
