The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) Poster

Jim Siedow: Old Man



  • Old Man : I just can't take no pleasure in killing. There's just some things you gotta do. Don't mean you have to like it.

  • Old Man : Look what your brother did to the door! Ain't he got no pride in his home?

  • Old Man : Look... I got some good barbecue here!

  • Old Man : Shut up, you bitch hog!

  • 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.

  • [to the captive Sally in his truck] 

    Old Man : Sorry to keep you waiting, young lady. I had to lock up the shop and turn the lights off. The cost of electricity these days is enough to drive a man like me out of business.

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

    Old Man : Shut your mouth!

  • Old Man : Those girls... those girls don't wanna go messin' 'round no old house!

  • Old Man : [to Leatherface]  You... you damn fool! You ruined the door!

  • Old Man : [to Sally]  Why, my old grandpa was the best killer there was at the slaughterhouse. Why, it never took more than one lick they say. Why, he did 60 cattle in five minutes once. They say he could have done more if the hook and pull gang could have gotten the beeves out of the way faster.

  • Old Man : [to Sally]  There's no need to do that!

  • Old Man : [to Sally]  Just take it easy now.
