Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) Poster

Tina Turner: Aunty Entity



  • Aunty Entity : We call it Underworld. That's where Bartertown gets its energy.

    Max : What, oil? Natural gas?

    Aunty Entity : Pigs.

    Max : You mean pigs like those?

    Aunty Entity : That's right.

    Max : Bullshit!

    Aunty Entity : No. Pig shit.

    Max : What?

    The Collector : Pig shit. The lights, the motors, the vehicles, all run by a high-powered gas called methane. And methane cometh from pig shit.

  • [Aunty Entity's men surround Max, until she makes them stand down] 

    Aunty Entity : [to Max]  Well, ain't we a pair, raggedy man.

    [she laughs evilly and heads back to her truck] 

    Aunty Entity : Goodbye, soldier.

    [she and her men drive off, leaving Max alone in the desert] 

  • Max : I don't know anything about methane.

    Aunty Entity : You can shovel shit can't you?

  • Aunty Entity : And what did you do before all this?

    Max : I was a cop, a driver.

    Aunty Entity : But how the world turns. One day, cock of the walk. Next, a feather duster.

  • Aunty Entity : Do you know who I was? Nobody. Except on the day after, I was still alive. This nobody had a chance to be somebody.

  • Aunty Entity : Welcome, to another edition of Thunderdome!

  • Master : These our witness, Aunty. Us suffer bad. Want justice. We want Thunderdome!

    Aunty Entity : You know the law: Two men enter, one man leaves.

    Master : This Blaster! Twenty men enter, only him leave!

    Aunty Entity : Then it's your choice. Thunderdome.

  • Aunty Entity : You think I don't know the law? Wasn't it me who wrote it? And I say that this man has broken the law. Right or wrong, we had a deal. And the law says: bust a deal and face the wheel!

  • Aunty Entity : Remember where you are - this is Thunderdome, and death is listening, and will take the first man that screams.

  • Aunty Entity : [to the citizens of Bartertown]  Where are you gonna run? Where are you gonna hide? Listen to me! Bartertown will live! Find the little man! Bring him back to me! We will rebuild! For those who took him... No mercy.

  • Max : Thunderdome. How do I get in there?

    Aunty Entity : That's easy. Pick a fight!

  • Aunty Entity : Congratulations! You're the first to survive the audition!

  • Auntie Entity : [the Blaster has reduced Bartertown's power supply]  For God's sake, what now?

    The Master : Who run Bartertown?

    Auntie Entity : Dammit, I told you, no more embargos.

    The Master : More, Blaster.

    [the Blaster puts all power out] 

    The Master : Who run Bartertown? Who... run... Bartertown?

    Auntie Entity : ...You know who.

    The Master : Say.

    Auntie Entity : Master Blaster.

    The Master : Say loud!

    [the Master turns on the town loudspeakers] 

    Auntie Entity : Master Blaster.

    The Master : Master Blaster... what?

    Auntie Entity : Master Blaster runs Bartertown.

    The Master : Louder!

    Auntie Entity : Master Blaster runs Bartertown!

    The Master : Lift embargo.

    [the Blaster turns power back on] 

  • Aunty Entity : This is no enemy. It's almost family.

    Max : Oh, I see, real civilized!

    Aunty Entity : The reasons don't concern you, only the conditions. Do you want the deal or not?

    Max : Mmm

    [nods in agreement] 

    The Collector : The first is, no one knows you're working for Aunty. You hit him, you go. The second is, it's a fair fight. The third is, it's to the death.

    Max : Who's the bunny?
