Repo Man (1984) Poster


Fox Harris: J. Frank Parnell



  • J. Frank Parnell : Ever been to Utah? Ra-di-a-tion. Yes, indeed. You hear the most outrageous lies about it. Half-baked goggle-box do-gooders telling everybody it's bad for you. Pernicious nonsense. Everybody could stand a hundred chest X-rays a year. They ought to have them, too. When they canceled the project it almost did me in. One day my mind was full to bursting. The next day - nothing. Swept away. But I'll show them. I had a lobotomy in the end.

    Otto : Lobotomy? Isn't that for loonies?

    Parnell : Not at all. Friend of mine had one. Designer of the neutron bomb. You ever hear of the neutron bomb? Destroys people - leaves buildings standing. Fits in a suitcase. It's so small, no one knows it's there until - BLAMMO. Eyes melt, skin explodes, everybody dead. So immoral, working on the thing can drive you mad. That's what happened to this friend of mine. So he had a lobotomy. Now he's well again.

  • J. Frank Parnell : You ever feel as if your mind had started to erode?

  • Motorcycle Cop : Whatcha got in the trunk?

    J. Frank Parnell : Oh... You don't wanna look in there.

  • J. Frank Parnell : Beautiful evening; you can almost see the stars...

  • J. Frank Parnell : You don't even know what's in your own trunk! And you know what? I think you're afraid to find out!
