Joe Dirt (2001) Poster


Fred Ward: Joe's Dad


  • Joe Dirt : [after finally finding his parents]  I - I - I don't mean to interrupt your clown pitch there, but - but how exactly do you not go right back to the place where you saw me?

    [the news crew goes baffled] 

    Joe's Dad : [sarcastically]  Hey! How exactly is a rainbow made? How exactly does a sun set? How exactly does a posi-trac rear-end on a Plymouth work? It just does.


    Joe's Mom : It just does.

    Joe Dirt : [sternly]  I'm not talking about a posi-trac; I'm talking about me. How long did you look for me before you gave up? How lone were you riding in that car before you realized I wasn't in it? Exactly how long?

    [a few seconds of silence] 

    Joe's Dad : All right! We didn't lose him; we just left him. So what? The dude's doing fine! Look at him!

    [guffaws again] 

    Joe's Mom : He look good.

  • Joe Dirt : [tearfully]  Why did you do that to me? I was only eight years old - I was just a little kid. Do you have any idea what it's like to be a kid and have nobody around to talk to? No one that cares if you're alive or dead? Every day you just think you're worthless and there's a void in your life?

    Joe's Mom : [chuckles]  Oh, come on, honey.

    Joe's Dad : Lighten up, buddy.

    [Joe goes real upset] 

    Joe's Mom : [takes a clown figurine]  Lose that frown. When you're down, stare at a clown.

    [Joe stands up and takes it] 

    Joe's Dad : That's right, boy.

    Joe's Mom : [hits him]  Hey, sit down! Sit down! You're blocking the cameras! The cameras can't see!

    Joe's Dad : Move over a bit!

    Joe Dirt : [angrily breaks the clown to the wall]  I don't care about that! AND I DON'T CARE ABOUT THIS!

    Joe's Dad : Hey! What the hell are you doing?

    [Joe walks up and kicks down a shelf of clowns destroying them all] 

    Joe Dirt : [leaves in tears]  And I don't want to see you for another 25 years!

    Reporter at Parent's House : [leaves with the crew]  Joe, wait!

    Joe's Mom : My God! Oh, my clowns! Look at my clowns! I wish he never found us! Look what he did to my children! Oh, no! Hey! Hey, TV people! Hey, TV people!

    Joe's Dad : Hey, you're grounded! Where are you all going? Hey, come on! You don't have to follow him just because he's going!
