A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
Philo Beddoe is an easy-going trucker and a great fist-fighter. With two friends - Orville, who promotes prize-fights for him, and Clyde, the orangutan he won on a bet - he roams the San Fernando Valley in search of cold beer, country music and the occasional punch-up. But he is floored himself by a dainty little country and western singer, who gives him the slip when she realizes he's getting too serious. Phil, Clyde and Orville set off in pursuit, pestered by bikers.Written by

When the Black Widows surround Lynn Halsey-Taylor as she is driving out of the gas station, the sound of a pump-action shotgun being "racked" comes from the trailer. When the gang leader looks over, it's a double-barreled shotgun that doesn't need to be "racked" for loading. See more »

Well, I don't suppose you know of a Ladies room hereabouts?
There all over. Just pick one.
[Echo heads for the nearest Ladies room]
She's something, ain't she?
She sure is. You're full of all kinds of surprises these days.
Well... Say... Listen, I wanna say that I appreciate your making her feel to home.

There's something out there. My God! It's horrible. It a monster! I've never see it. It's not even a bear!

EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE (1978) *** Clint Eastwood, Sondra Locke,RuthGordon, Geoffrey Lewis, Beverly D' Angelo. Rollickingly funny comedy with Clint as tough-guy Philo Beddoe and his best friend, Clyde the scene- stealing orangutan and Gordon stealing scenes from both as Philo's feisty ma. Plot is simple: Philo has fallen in love with country/western songstress Locke and entails some adventures in his pursuit. Lewis lends some able, amiable support as Philo's best bud and fellow beer drinking good ol' boy. Fine jukebox offering of C&W and filmed on location in sunny Bakersfield, California.
Redneck humor was never this pugnacious!
