Daddy and Them (2001) Poster

Billy Bob Thornton: Claude Montgomery



  • Ruby Montgomery : What if I had your brother's name tattooed by my deal, a sex reminder every time you went to fool with me? That's how I live every day of my life, rain or shine.

    Claude Montgomery : A rose is just a symbol that represents a flower called a rose. And you oughta be damned proud that I covered her name up with a feather that way, 'cause I done it for you. Out of love.

    Ruby Montgomery : Bullshit! I stayed on your ass is the only reason you fixed any of it. And the only reason you got that one means *God* is to take my attention off *her* being all over you!

    Claude Montgomery : I didn't necessarily say it meant God. That one guy in there said it meant God, the other guy said it's a weed whacker, or a Communist flag, or something. And they don't believe in God. Or Jesus.

  • Ruby Montgomery : I like to be up when there ain't nobody else up. Feels like the whole world's asleep. Can't nuthin' get ya or bother ya. Ya know?

    Claude Montgomery : Well, it seems to me that's when everything *can* get you. That's when folks get knocked in the head, and shot, cut up and everything, at night.

    Ruby Montgomery : I don't want to think about things like that right now. If your gonna keep talkin' about it, you'll have to sleep on the couch.

  • Claude Montgomery : [in a neck brace]  I can't have a head-on collision in peace! I coulda been torn to pieces here.

    Ruby Montgomery : Yeah, well, you have fun at your little nightclub?

    Claude Montgomery : Well, shit, we didn't get to the nightclub. We ain't but a mile from the house. We was headed that way, and J.C. bent down to pick up his Molly Hatchet tape, and we been here ever since.

  • Claude Montgomery : Alvin busted in on me in the toilet tonight while I was doin' lumber.

    Ruby Montgomery : I'm sorry, sugar.

    Claude Montgomery : I guess it's okay, he's my brother.

  • Claude Montgomery : It's kinda like that book they had us read one time in school. It started out sayin' it was the best time I ever had, and it was the worst time I ever had. I believe it's by Dick somebody.

    Ruby Montgomery : I'll be dogged.

  • Claude Montgomery : So I've been puttin' up with all that shit from daddy all these years about grand babies, and I been shootin' at a steel door.

  • [last lines] 

    Ruby Montgomery : Some clouds comin' in. Maybe there's a storm comin'.

    Claude Montgomery : Nah, them ain't storm clouds.
