Paper Moon (1973) Poster


Tatum O'Neal: Addie Loggins



  • Addie Loggins : I want my two hundred dollars.

    Moses Pray : I don't have your two hundred dollars no more and you know it.

    Addie Loggins : If you don't give me my two hundred dollars I'm gonna tell a policeman how you got it and he'll make you give it to me because it's mine.

    Moses Pray : But I don't have it!

    Addie Loggins : Then get it!

    Cafe Waitress : [walks over after Moses slams his fist on the table]  How we doin', Angel Pie? We gonna have a little dessert when we finish up our hot dog?

    Addie Loggins : I don't know.

    Cafe Waitress : What do you say, Daddy? Why don't we give Precious a little dessert if she eats her dog?

    Moses Pray : Her name ain't Precious.

  • Moses Pray : [calling up to Addie on the hill]  Let's go!

    Trixie Delight : Hurry up, Doctor. This baby gots to go winky tinky!

    Moses Pray : [patting Trixie's shoulder]  Don't worry.

    [calling up to Addie again] 

    Moses Pray : Hey!

    [Moses starts walking up the hill] 

    Moses Pray : Come on, we're ready! Come on, now!

    Addie Loggins : I ain't comin'!

    Moses Pray : You listen here, child...

    Addie Loggins : No, I won't listen here.

    Moses Pray : What the heck's up with you then?

    Addie Loggins : I wanna sit in front! And how come we ain't workin' no more?

    Moses Pray : 'Cause we're on vacation, that's why, and Miss Delight and me are sittin' in front because we are two grown-ups and that's where grown-ups do the sittin'! And little children do not tell grown-ups what to do with their lives, you understand that?

    Addie Loggins : Well, she ain't my grown-up and I ain't plannin' no more to sit in the back. Not for no cow!

    Moses Pray : Will you keep your voice down? And Miss Delight ain't no cow. She's a proper woman. She has a high school diploma. And right now she's got to go to the bathroom, so you get on down to the car!

    Addie Loggins : She always has to go to the bathroom! She must have a bladder the size of a peanut! Well, I ain't gettin' back in that car... not until she gets out of it!

    [disgusted, Moses goes back to the car and talks to Trixie] 

    Trixie Delight : [making her way up the hill]  Hey, what's up, kiddo? Daddy says you're wearin' a sad face. Ain't good to have a sad face. Hey! Hey! How'd you like a coloring book? Would you like that? You like Mickey the Mouse?

    [Trixie trips and falls] 

    Trixie Delight : Oh, son of a bitch!

  • Addie Loggins : I need to go to the shithouse.

  • Addie Loggins : Imogene, what do you suppose Miss Trixie'd do if somebody offered her $25 to put out.

    Imogene : Ooo Wee! You crazy? For that much money, that woman'd drop her pants down in the middle of the road!

  • Addie Loggins : Why don't you quit?

    Imogene : Quit! Now, how am I gonna quit? And what if I do quit, I ain't got no money to get home to Mama. And what if I do get home, they got hard times as it is. My Mama say, "You go work for that white lady, she'll take good care of you."

    [Rolls her eyes] 

    Imogene : You wanna know what I think?

    Addie Loggins : Yeah.

    Imogene : You know the little white speck on top of chicken doo-doo?

    Addie Loggins : Yeah.

    Imogene : Well, that's the kind of white I think miss Trixie is. She's just like that little white speck on top of old chicken shit.

  • [about Trixie Delight] 

    Addie Loggins : How come she had to leave that job back there?

    Imogene : Cause the boss-man tried to make her put out for his friends, and she don't believe in puttin' out for free!

    Addie Loggins : She put out much?

    Imogene : Just like a gum machine. You drop some in and she'll put some out.

    Addie Loggins : How much she charge?

    Imogene : Most she can get. But, she always asks for five dollars.

  • [repeated line] 

    Addie Loggins : I want my two hundred dollars!

  • Addie Loggins : [about the Harem Slave show at carnival]  How many times you gonna see it?

    Moses Pray : As many times as I like, that's how many times!

    Addie Loggins : You've seen it half a dozen already.

    Moses Pray : And I might see it half a dozen more! Now why don't you go play bingo or somethin'?

    Addie Loggins : I don't wanna play bingo!

    Moses Pray : Then why don't you go write another love note to Saint Roosevelt?

    Addie Loggins : Maybe I will!

    Moses Pray : And stop standing around here checking on me! You don't have to worry. I ain't about to leave some poor little child stranded in the middle of nowhere. I've got scruples too, ya know. You know what that is... scruples?

    Addie Loggins : No, I don't know what it is but if you've got 'em, it's a sure bet they belong to somebody else!

    [Addie stalks off] 

    Moses Pray : [calling after Addie about President Roosevelt]  And his name ain't Frank, it's Franklin!

  • Moses Pray : I told you, I don't want you ridin' with me no more.

    Addie Loggins : You still owe me two hundred dollars.

  • Trixie Delight : I just don't understand it, Daddy, but this little baby has got to go winky tinky all the time.

    Moses Pray : Well, don't you worry none. We'll just plan on stoppin' here for dinner.

    Addie Loggins : [furious]  But we just stopped for her to winky tink at lunch!

    Moses Pray : That's right and now we're stoppin' for dinner. Come on!

    Addie Loggins : I ain't hungry!

  • Moses Pray : I now owe you one hundred and three dollars and seventy-two cents.

    Addie Loggins : Seventy-four.

  • Moses Pray : Let's see, now, we can veer down to Lucas and we'll veer over to Wilson, veer off to Lorraine and Bushton.

    Addie Loggins : We can veer off to Hosington.

    Moses Pray : We just have to keep on veering, that's all.

  • Addie Loggins : Where you from?

    Imogene : Nowhere.

    Addie Loggins : Well, you gotta be from somewhere.

    Imogene : Down by Troy, I guess.

  • Addie Loggins : She really do all that dancin'?

    Imogene : Well, if you want to call it dancin'! All she do is wag her hips and shake her ole behind a little.

  • Addie Loggins : Say, you know that red headed lady who comes down here named Miss Trixie Delight?

    Floyd : Yeah.

    Addie Loggins : Well, she thinks you're real cute.

    Floyd : Oh yeah, says you and who else?

    Addie Loggins : No, honest. She says you're better lookin' than Dick Powell.

  • Addie Loggins : Maybe you should ask her for a date. That will sure tickle her.

  • Addie Loggins : Frank D. Roosevelt said we're all feelin' a lot better.

    Moses Pray : He did, did he?

    Addie Loggins : It made me feel good when he said that. Better than I felt in a long time.

    Moses Pray : Bet ole Frank sure does wish you was twenty-one.

    Addie Loggins : You don't like me, do ya?

    Moses Pray : No, I don't like ya!

  • Moses Pray : Okay, I want you to remember one thing. I decide on the price. Maybe you don't know French but there's something in this world called finance. Twelve dollars. I never sold no bible for twelve dollars. That man was a law officer. He could have had me put in jail.

    Addie Loggins : We got it, didn't we!

    Moses Pray : I don't care if we got it. Don't you go makin' the decisions. I make the decisions! All you got to do is look like a pretty little girl. You ain't got somethin' like a ribbon in that cigar box, do ya?

    Addie Loggins : I got my Mom's kimono in my suitcase. Chinamen with umbrellas.

    Moses Pray : That ain't quite what I had in mind.

  • [last lines] 

    Moses Pray : I told you, I don't want you ridin' with me no more.

    Addie Loggins : You still owe me two hundred dollars.

    Addie Loggins : Moze, look!

  • Addie Loggins : You meet my Mama in a barroom?

    Moses Pray : Where would you get a question like that?

    Addie Loggins : I hear Miss Polly talkin' neighborly and she says one of you is my Pa.

    Moses Pray : Well, don't the world have a wild imagination.

  • Addie Loggins : [about Trixie Delight]  She always has to go to the bathroom. She must have a bladder the size of a peanut.
