Flicka 2 (2010 Video)
Carrie McLaughlin: Time?
Moe the Deli Owner: Six minutes flat.
Carrie McLaughlin: Yes! Yes!
Carrie McLaughlin: [tugs at tattoo shirt] Don't worry, they're not real.
Hank McLaughlin: That's a relief.
Carrie McLaughlin: I think something died in my room, it reeks.
Hank McLaughlin: Wind shifted. Puts you downwind to the barn, see. That's why my room is on the other side of the house.
Hank McLaughlin: You can use my computer all that you want, as long as it doesn't have to be connected to the Internet.
Carrie McLaughlin: What? You don't have the Internet?
[Hank shakes his head no]
Carrie McLaughlin: How do you even exist?
Hank McLaughlin: The same way people on The Great Plains have for over one-hundred years, you'll get used to it.
Toby: Morning, boss. I see you're enjoying life as a family man.
Hank McLaughlin: Yeah, I guess you could say we got off on the wrong foot.
Toby: She reminds me of my oldest daughter, she was a feisty little thing. Still is.
Hank McLaughlin: She calls me Hank!
Toby: What do you expect? You haven't seen her since she was in diapers.
[Talking to Flicka in the box stalls]
Carrie McLaughlin: I'm with you. If it makes you feel any better, I was forced on him, too.
[Speedy the dog farts]
Carrie McLaughlin: Oh man! They should've called you Stinky, not Speedy!
Toby: What's on your mind, boss?
Hank McLaughlin: Carrie's been riding Flicka on the sly.
Toby: Oh... yeah.
Hank McLaughlin: How long have you known about that?
Toby: Sorry, my friend. I just didn't have the heart to tell you. If it makes you feel any better, she rides that little mare pretty good.
Hank McLaughlin: Well, I don't feel better. I feel like an idiot. I'm the last one to know what's going on, she won't talk to me, she keeps everything to herself.
Toby: Who does that sound like?
Hank McLaughlin: Go on.
Toby: Like father, like daughter.
Hank McLaughlin: Horses sure are easier.
Toby: Maybe you oughta loosen the reins a little.
Hank McLaughlin: Alright, I suppose this is the part where I give you a curfew.
Carrie McLaughlin: We will be home by 11.
Hank McLaughlin: 10.
Carrie McLaughlin: Come on, 11 is a perfectly appropriate hour for my age category.
Hank McLaughlin: 10:30, final.
Carrie McLaughlin: Sold. Good deal.
[At the bonfire]
Carrie McLaughlin: It's really beautiful here.
Jake: Yeah. Wyoming isn't so bad. It could become a part of you, if you let it.
Carrie McLaughlin: That's not gonna happen. I'm not a sentimental type of girl.
Jake: Why is that?
Carrie McLaughlin: 'Cause everything I care about gets taken away.
Carrie McLaughlin: Hey, you wanna go for a ride later after the horse sale?
Jake: This hick has work to do.
Carrie McLaughlin: Fine, be a flip-flop.
Jake: Whatever that means.
Carrie McLaughlin: [to Jake] Why don't you just go back to not talking to me again?
Toby: Shake it off, Cowboy. I've still got some anti-venom left if you need it.
HD Walker: Girl runs off in the middle of a storm. Can't you control that daughter of yours?
Hank McLaughlin: We're still working that part out.
[Walker finds Flicka's stall empty]
HD Walker: Oh, well now, look at this. Well, I'll tell you what I'm gonna work out: I'm gonna call the sheriff and report that daughter of yours as a horse thief. Maybe a little time in juvie oughta straighten her out.
Hank McLaughlin: Alright, now wait a minute. Just wait a minute. You were gonna put that horse down, it has no value to you.
HD Walker: That horse was my property and she stole it. Now, I've got the right to press charges and that is exactly what I'm gonna do.
Hank McLaughlin: Just stop it right there! My daughter's out in that storm and the only call you better be making is to ask your men to help me find her.
Hank McLaughlin: I know how you feel. Sometimes, life breaks your heart. Like when your mother left with you. I couldn't provide any kind of life for you, but uh, that didn't make it hurt any less.
Carrie McLaughlin: [voice breaking] I thought that you never wanted us... me.
Hank McLaughlin: Did you ever ask yourself why the name of my ranch is KC? Katherine Carrie - KC Ranch. I always told your mother that I'd get my own place and that we'd have a real life. But that all ended up taking a bit longer than I'd expected but it was the idea of it that kept me working all these years. I always wanted you, Carrie. But I can't keep you here if you don't wanna stay, just like Flicka can't be kept in that stable if she doesn't wanna be kept.
Hank McLaughlin: You see her?
Carrie McLaughlin: There she is. She has a foal, Dad. Isn't she beautiful? If she wants to come home, we'll let her, won't we?
Hank McLaughlin: Flicka's a member of the family. If she wants to come back, she's welcome.
[Carries goes to see Flicka and her foal]
Carrie McLaughlin: Welcome home, girl. Welcome home.
[Driving through ranch land]
Carrie McLaughlin: Where's the concrete?
Hank McLaughlin: Welcome to Wyoming.
Carrie McLaughlin: [to Hank] By the way, the reception out here sucks.
Hank McLaughlin: Carrie! Why don't you come back here and eat your breakfast? I didn't say you were excused.
Carrie McLaughlin: Excused? You're kidding, right? You can't tell me what to do.
Hank McLaughlin: I am your father.
Carrie McLaughlin: I don't even know you!
[She walks off]
Hank McLaughlin: Well, fine. If you don't eat it, Speedy will!
Toby: [to Hank about Carrie] Whether she calls you "Dad" or not, you're all that little girl's got.
Pete: Better watch your step, little lady. You ain't in the city anymore.
Carrie McLaughlin: Oh yeah? Well, let's see you survive one day in Pittsburgh.
Pete: I don't know why you keep that mustang. Nobody can ride her. It's not worth the weight in feed.
Hank McLaughlin: Flicka was my niece's horse. When my brother sold his ranch, I promised to take care of her.
Toby: Means he's stuck with her.
Pete: Yeah, well, that's family for you. Waste your time and your money, won't so much as even thank you for the privilege.
Hank McLaughlin: Well, ain't that the truth.
Carrie McLaughlin: [while cleaning her phone screen] So much for contacting civilization.
[after Flicka saves Carrie from the snake]
Toby: Maybe Flicka's good for something after all.
Carrie McLaughlin: Flicka?
Toby: Means 'beautiful girl'. Your cousin Katy named her.
Carrie McLaughlin: You've gotta make it, Flicka. But don't go thinking I'm attached or anything. It's just, you saved me, so... I'm saving you back.
[Everybody's watching Carrie and Flicka sleeping]
Hank McLaughlin: So I guess nobody's working today?
Carrie McLaughlin: [to Flicka about Hank] Don't listen to him. All he cares about is his stupid horse sale, but I got your back.
Carrie McLaughlin: Look, Flicka, I can be pretty stubborn. There's no way you're gonna win.
Carrie McLaughlin: Do you have any skate parks around here? Half-pipes, bowls?
Carrie McLaughlin: How about just concrete or asphalt?
Jake: Well, there's the Highway 9, but it's full of semis.
[Describing the town nearby]
Jake: There's a movie on the weekends.
Carrie McLaughlin: Only one?
Jake: Don't blame me, I just live here.
Carrie McLaughlin: [to Flicka] I wish I could ride you. I'd ride you all the way back to Pittsburgh.
Jake: [Offers to teach Carrie how to ride a horse] If you want, I could teach you.
Carrie McLaughlin: What'll it cost me?
Jake: That iPod should do it.
Carrie McLaughlin: I'd rather die.
Jake: Relax. I just wanted to listen to some of your music, that's all.
[Flipping through the channels on TV]
Carrie McLaughlin: I used to complain back in Pittsburgh that there was nothing on, but seriously, there is NOTHING on.
Hank McLaughlin: Well, as long as we can get the weather report, that's all I need.
[Flips to lawnmower racing]
Carrie McLaughlin: Are those lawnmowers? Okay, that's just stupid. Who would watch this?
HD Walker: Hank McLaughlin. Hope that mutt horse mustang of yours hasn't found its way onto my property again.
Hank McLaughlin: It's nothing like that, HD. All of your fences are still standing.
Jake: Well, my first piece of advice would be to start out on a nice, calm horse. Not a wild mustang.
Carrie McLaughlin: No, I wanna ride Flicka. She hates being cooped up here as much as I do.
Jake: Fine, don't listen to me, then. I'm just the one who's been living here my entire life.
[Toby sees Carrie carrying an umbrella and a basket to collect eggs]
Toby: Looks like rain in the chicken coop.
Hank McLaughlin: If you give a filly too much praise before you break 'em, you end up with a half-broke horse.
Toby: You know, I don't know if you've noticed, but she ain't no filly, she's a girl.
Carrie McLaughlin: I already know how to ride. Jake's been teaching me.
Hank McLaughlin: Let me guess: on Flicka?
Carrie McLaughlin: Please don't blame Jake, it was my idea. Flicka's really good with me. Please don't be mad?
Hank McLaughlin: I'm not mad.
Carrie McLaughlin: You sound like it.
Hank McLaughlin: Carrie, I'm not the enemy. Why do you feel like you have to sneak around and hide things from me?
Carrie McLaughlin: Sorry.
Hank McLaughlin: Me too. It's just that as your father, I would've liked to have, uh... it's just another thing I didn't get a chance at.
Jake: You do know what this means now, don't you?
Carrie McLaughlin: No?
Jake: Well, if you're really gonna ride, you're gonna need a hat.
[puts one on Carrie]
Jake: Pretty cute.
Carrie McLaughlin: I'm so glad my peeps in Pittsburgh will never see this.
Jake: [about Hank] He's a good boss.
Carrie McLaughlin: He's good at bossing.
Jake: Well, that's just what dads do.
Carrie McLaughlin: I wouldn't know.
Carrie McLaughlin: No. Really? You like living on a giant patch of dirt with herds of stinky animals?
Jake: Horses aren't stinky.
Carrie McLaughlin: Okay. Cows are though.
Jake: Okay, well, where would you like to live?
Carrie McLaughlin: The city.
Jake: You'd rather live on a slab of concrete with a bunch of loud, stinky, metal things?
Carrie McLaughlin: Yes, actually, I would.
Carrie McLaughlin: [to Flicka] You know, sometimes I think you're the only one around here that gets me.
[after Jake and Carrie get in the truck late]
Toby: I'm buying you both watches for your birthdays.
[Jake and Carrie are silent after the bonfire]
Toby: Good thing I got my radio fixed.
Carrie McLaughlin: [about Hank and the horse sale] He raises these things and just sells 'em off. I thought the city was pretty heartless.
Hank McLaughlin: Well, Toby, we did it. We may not be rich, but we'll make it through another season.
Toby: Be sure to let me know when we do get rich.
Carrie McLaughlin: [to Flicka] I'm starting to think you're more fun than a skateboard after all.
Hank McLaughlin: I tried, Carrie. I gave you an inch, you take a mile.
