Quotes

Dan Mott: Where are we?

Jerry Conlaine: Corner of Bumfuck and You Got a Purty Mouth.

Del Knox: I spent the best years of my life sittin' on the porch, playin' the harmonica, waitin' for somethin' better. And the years have been goin' by faster, and faster, and then, all of a sudden, I was an old man.

Tom Marshall: Well I bet you can play the shit outta that harmonica!

Del Knox: That I can. 'Cept there's no one around to hear me play it. Piece of advice: you can lose your money. You can spend it - all of it. Maybe work hard, get it all back. But if you waste your time, you're never gonna get it back.

[Billy's French speaking girlfriend rubs herself on his casket]

Jerry Conlaine: [on the answer machine] Hi, this is Jerry, and I can't come to the phone right now because I am busy trying to convince the love of my life to give me another chance. And I will prove to her that I grew up just enough to know that I want the responsibility day in and day out of being there for her in this relationship which I am hoping will someday become marriage, kids and an *unbelievably* happy life together.
