Quotes

[last lines]

Hushpuppy: When it all goes quiet behind my eyes, I see everything that made me lying around in invisible pieces. When I look too hard, it goes away. And when it all goes quiet, I see they are right here. I see that I'm a little piece in a big, big universe. And that makes things right. When I die, the scientists of the future, they're gonna find it all. They gonna know, once there was a Hushpuppy, and she live with her daddy in the Bathtub.

Hushpuppy: Everybody loses the thing that made them. It's even how it's supposed to be in nature. The brave men stay and watch it happen, they don't run.

Hushpuppy: Sometimes you can break something so bad, that it can't get put back together.

Hushpuppy: I hope you die and after you die I'll go to your grave and eat birthday cake all by myself.

Hushpuppy: Strong animals know when your hearts are weak, and that makes 'em hungry. And they start comin'.

Hushpuppy: I see that I am a little piece of a big, big universe, and that makes it right.

Hushpuppy: When it all goes quiet behind my eyes, I see everything that made me flying around in invisible pieces.

Hushpuppy: [about hospital beds] When an animal gets sick here, they plug it into the wall.

Hushpuppy: The whole universe depends on everything fitting together just right. If one piece busts, even the smallest piece... the entire universe will get busted.

Hushpuppy: The Bathtub has more holidays than the whole rest of the world.

Hushpuppy: [hiding from trouble] When daddy kill me I won't be forgotten. I'm recording my story for the scientists in the future. In a million years, when kids go to school, they gonna know: Once there was a Hushpuppy, and she lived with her daddy in The Bathtub.

Wink: [Concerning the boat's dividing line after Hushpuppy burned her house down] If I want to go over there and smack you in the face, well, that's against the rules. So that's a plus for you.

The Cook: Lemme tell you somethin', when you're a child people tell you that everything's gonna be all hunky-dory and all that bullshit, but I'm here to tell you that it's not. So get that out your head right now. Life's some big old feast, yeah, but you? You ain't nothin' but a stupid little waitress. Everything you got on your platter gonna fall on the floor and ain't nobody gonna be there to pick it up for you. Someday it's all gonna be on you.

Wink: My only purpose in life is to teach her how to make it.

Wink: I'm your daddy, and it's my job to take care of you, OK?
