The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) Poster

Paul A. Partain: Franklin



  • Franklin : [Sarcastically]  HE HE HE! Come on Franklin! It's gonna be a fun trip! HE! If I have anymore fun today, I don't think I'm gonna be able to take it!

  • Franklin : [refering to the Hitchhiker]  I think we just picked up Dracula.

  • 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...

  • Jerry : Hi, Mister. Would you fill 'er up, please?

    Old Man : I got no gas.

    Franklin : What? You're all out of gas?

    Old Man : My tank's empty! Transport woun't be here until late this afternoon. Maybe not even 'til tomorrow morning.

    Franklin : Hey, do you know where the old Franklin place is?

    Old Man : The old Franklin place?

    Franklin : Yeah, it's an old two-story rock house that sitting up on a hill. I thought it might be back on that road someplace, but I'm not really sure.

    Old Man : Uh... yeah, maybe I've seen something like that up that way. Well now look, you boys don't want to go messin' around some old house. Those things is dangerous. You're liable to get hurt.

    Kirk : We'll be careful.

    Old Man : No, seriously. You don't want to go fooling around other folks' property. If some folks don't like it... they don't mind showing you.

  • Franklin : If I have any more fun today I don't think I can take it!

  • 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!

  • Franklin : They just shoot a bolt in their head, and then retract it. It's just BOOM-shht-BOOM-shht.

    Sally : Franklin, I like meat. Please change the subject!

  • Franklin : [referring to the hitchhiker]  You don't think that guy tried to follow us, do you? Well, I mean there's no way that he could follow us. He's probably afraid Kirk will kill him.
