The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) Poster

Edwin Neal: Hitchhiker



  • Hitchhiker : My family's always been in meat.

  • Hitchhiker : You could have dinner with us... my brother makes good head cheese! You like head cheese?

  • Franklin : Hey man, you ever go in that slaughter room or whatever they call it? The place where they shoot cattle in the head with that big air gun?

    Hitchhiker : Oh, that gun's no good.

    Franklin : I was in there once with my uncle.

    Hitchhiker : The old way... with a sledge! You see, that way's better. They die better that way.

    Franklin : Well, how come? I thought the gun was better.

    Hitchhiker : Oh, no. With the new way... people were put out of jobs.

    Franklin : Did you do that?

    Hitchhiker : [digs through pouch for a few pictures]  Look!

    [hands them to Franklin] 

    Hitchhiker : I was the killer!

    Franklin : [looking at the pictures]  Damn...

  • Hitchhiker : You just shut up and remember you're just the cook and me and him'll handle this!

    Old Man : Shut your mouth!

  • Kirk : So, where you heading, man?

    Hitchhiker : South.

    Franklin : You work at that place? The slaughter house?

    Hitchhiker : Uh... no.

    Sally : How'd you get stuck way out here?

    Hitchhiker : I was at the slaughter house.

    Franklin : I got an uncle who works in a slaughter house.

    Hitchhiker : I used to work there. My brother did too. My grandfather too. My family's always been in meat!

    Franklin : [quietly to Sally]  A whole family of Draculas!

  • Hitchhiker : [to Sally]  And-and I thought YOU was in a hurry!

  • Hitchhiker : [to Leatherface, who investigates Sally at the dinner table]  You like this face?
