Pineapple Express (2008) Poster

James Franco: Saul Silver



  • Saul : Let's roll, man! I'm done with the woods! Let's go! C'mon, man, let's get the fuck outta here!

    Dale Denton : [sarcastically]  Okay... Uhh let's go... No... It's not working... the battery's dead.

    Saul : Wait...! What do you mean, it's dead?

    Dale Denton : [laughing]  What do I mean? I mean the battery's dead. The battery's dead!

    Saul : No, no! What do you mean, the battery's dead?

    Dale Denton : How can I explain this to you differently? The battery is dead. It ceased to live. It's deceased now. The car needs a battery to start, Saul.

    Saul : [frustrated sigh]  How did this happen?

    Dale Denton : Well we clearly fell asleep with the battery on and-...

    Saul : Aw, man... Talk radio?

    Dale Denton : Yes, talk radio.

    Saul : So boring, man! The car just committed suicide.

  • Saul : I wish I had a job like that. Where I could just sit around and smoke weed all day

    Dale Denton : Hey you do have that job. You do sit around and smoke weed all day.

    Saul : Hey you're right. Hey thanks man.

  • Saul : Fuck the po-lice!

  • Saul : How about in the park, when I said you were my friend... you didn't say anything back.

    Dale Denton : Well, that's easy. It's because we're not friends. You are my drug dealer. The only reason I know you is because I like the drugs you sell. If you didn't sell drugs, I would have no idea who you are, and I wouldn't be here right now. I would be fantastic!

    Saul : Oh.

    Dale Denton : I'm sorry, that sounded really mean... just to hear that, that sounded really mean.

    Saul : No, I see. The monkey's out of the bottle now!

    Dale Denton : What? That's not even... a figure of speech.

    Saul : Pandora can't go back into the box - he only comes out.

  • Saul : [talking about Pineapple Express]  It's almost a shame to smoke it. It's like killing a unicorn... with, like, a bomb.

  • Dale Denton : [while hiding in the woods, on the run from Ted's henchmen]  Even if he found that roach, how could he find us?

    Saul : Um... heat-seeking missiles... bloodhounds... and foxes... barracudas...

    Dale Denton : I'm just - I'm kind of flabbergasted when you say things like that. It's weird.

    Saul : Thank you.

    Dale Denton : Not a compliment.

  • Dale Denton : [talking about his girlfriend]  I go visit her in high school and all the guys she goes to school with are, like, strong and handsome and really, like, funny and do good impressions of Jeff Goldblum and shit like that. And, like, I just feel like a fat, dumb fuckin' stinky-ass turd when I'm there.

    Saul : What?

    Dale Denton : It sucks for my ego.

    Saul : Fuck Jeff Goldblum, man!

  • Saul : BFFF?

    Dale Denton : Best Fuckin' Friends Forever, man!

  • Saul : This is like if that Blue Oyster shit met that Afghan Kush I had - and they had a baby. And then, meanwhile, that crazy Northern Light stuff I had and the Super Red Espresso Snowflake met and had a baby. And by some miracle, those two babies met and fucked - this would the shit that they birthed.

    Dale Denton : [smells the marijuana]  Wow. This is the product of baby fucking.

  • Dale Denton : In case you haven't noticed - which you haven't, 'cause from what I can tell, you don't notice anything ever - we are not very functional when we're high.

    Saul : Well, I don't know, man. I think I'm functioning right now. I was, like, stoned when I saved you with those slushies. What do you gotta say to that?

    Dale Denton : Well, that would be true if you had saved me. But you didn't save me. She was gonna help us, but you made things worse. Now we're wanted for all sorts of crazy shit!

    Saul : Don't fucking get on my case, all right? Look, only reason I started selling pot is so I could put my bubbeh in a nice retirement home.

    Dale Denton : [sarcastically]  Oh, yeah, she must be proud of you for that.

    Saul : She is really proud of me, and I'm gonna become something, man! As soon as she dies, I'm gonna become a civil engineer. I'm gonna design septic tanks for playgrounds. Little kids can take shits! You idiot, what the hell do you do?

  • Saul : What's down there, a fucking Rancor?

  • Saul : Enjoy your last meal.

    [throws bills at Dale] 

    Saul : Here, supersize it, bitch.

    [throws change] 

  • Saul : Holy cock!

  • Saul : Hey, look: it's like my thumb is my cock.

    Dale Denton : That's not gonna get us a ride, man.

  • Dale Denton : What the fuck is this thing?

    Saul : Ah. Cross joint.

    Dale Denton : Yeah.

    Saul : You ever smoke one of those?

    Dale Denton : You can SMOKE this?

    Saul : Hell yeah, man!

    Dale Denton : No.

    Saul : This. Is. The future, this is like the apex of the vortex of joint engineering. It's rumored that M. M. O'Shaughnessy designed the first one - the guy who, uh, designed the Golden Gate Bridge. My second favorite civil engineer behind Hannskarl Bandel: Madison Square Garden... What you do is you light all three ends at the same time...

    Dale Denton : Really?

    Saul : - and then the smoke converges, creating a TRIFECTA of joint-smoking power. This is it, man. This is what your grandchildren are gonna be smoking. Future. That - future...

  • Saul : What's up with the suit?

    Dale Denton : Oh, I'm a process server, so I have to wear a suit.

    Saul : Wow, you're a servant? Like a butler? A chauffeur?

    Dale Denton : No, no. What? No, I'm not like-...

    Saul : Shine shoes?

    Dale Denton : I'm a *process server*!

  • Red : Do you know what today is?

    Saul : Tuesday.

    Red : This is my cat's birthday today.

    Dale Denton : I don't see a cat in here. I'm sorry. Did you let it out by accident?

    Red : No, because he died three months ago, okay? So now who's the funny guy?

    Dale Denton : I'm sorry?

    Red : Today is his birthday and it is a tradition that on his birthday I get up extra early and make him his favorite kind of dessert.

    Saul : Don't worry, bro. Your cat's going to heaven.

    Red : Yeah, maybe. Maybe he went to heaven. He was a little fucker. He could've gone to hell.

  • Saul : [Saul talking to Red on the phone]  Well be careful, man. Be careful. Wear shoes in the house. Safety. Safety first, then teamwork.

  • Saul : There's a fly in the ointment, shits hittin' the fan, the lion will speak!

  • Red : You don't think I can handle danger?

    Dale Denton : What are you talking about?

    Saul : You can.

    Red : I totally can. And for you to come into my house and not tell secrets because you think you're saving me, well, in reality it just makes you look like a dumbass, cause look at this.

    [He shows them his shaved armpits] 

    Red : You see this? You see that? There's no hair under here, bro.

    Dale Denton : What's the significance of that?

    Red : It makes me aerodynamic when I fight. I can take danger.

  • Saul : I think we should stay!

    Dale Denton : Why?

    Saul : ...Cause I'm in the dumpster already!

  • Saul : [quoting 227]  I thought hurricane season was over!

  • Dale Denton : I'm gonna get us out of here!

    Saul : No, you're not. But it's okay.

  • Saul : Just sit back and get ready to enjoy some of the rarest weed known to mankind.

    [he lights a joint and inhales] 

    Dale Denton : It's really that rare?

    Saul : [exhales]  It's, like, the rarest.

    [he examines the joint] 

    Saul : It's almost a shame to smoke it. It's like killing a unicorn... with, like, a bomb.

  • Saul : When my foot was in the hole - and my groin - man, I felt like a wishbone.

  • Saul : You lied to me.

    Red : I did. I lied big time to you.

    Saul : Dale said that that you didn't even have herpes, and I said that you did.

    Red : Honestly, like, from now on, just, like, from everything that we've gone through, from, like, seeing this fuckin' asshole's nuts smashed with my Daewoo, I want to be a better friend to you. I really do.

    Saul : I fuckin' love you, dog. I fuckin' love you.

    Red : I wanna be inside you, homes.

    Saul : No more lies, Red.

    Red : This is my moment.

    Saul : This is your moment.

    [Carol shoots Red] 

  • Dale Denton : You killed my ear!

    Matheson : You shot me!

    Dale Denton : I didn't do that!

    Matheson : HE shot me!

    Dale Denton : You shot him?

    Saul : nods his head

    Matheson : Get your hands off me!

    Saul : Shut up! we've had enough of you!

    Matheson : I'm not your friend!

  • Matheson : You know you gonna die right?

    Saul : [sadly]  Yeah...

    Matheson : I'm gonna kill the fuck out you... I hope you enjoy these last... 17 minutes of your life... cause when Ted gets here, he's gonna be like, 'Kill that motha fucker, kill that motha fuckin ass'... watch your head!

  • Saul : Man, why'd we have to go to the woods?

    Dale Denton : Well you didn't come up with any ideas!

    Saul : Yeah, I came up with two! Nowhere and Quizno's.

  • [Dale walks in unexpectedly] 

    Dale Denton : Hello? Hey, man.

    Saul : What the fuck? I didn't buzz you in. How the monkey did you get in here?

    Dale Denton : Oh, shit, some guy with a faux 'hawk let me in. He was leaving when I was-...

    Saul : Fuckin' Kyle, man?

    Dale Denton : It might've been Kyle.

    Saul : That asshole.

    Dale Denton : I'm sorry.

    Saul : What the fuck's the buzzer for, anyway?

    Dale Denton : I don't know. I'm sorry about that. I don't know your protocol yet.

  • Dale Denton : Oh, wow, you got a cute picture.

    Saul : Oh, yeah, me and my bubbeh. Hey, let me ask you something. Do you think you could pull the plug on someone if you needed to? Like euthanasia?

    Dale Denton : Like on her?

    Saul : If I needed to.

    Dale Denton : Um... I'm kind of in a hurry, man. I don't know if we should start going down that road. I could talk all day about euthanasia. Don't get me started.

    Saul : Well, save it!

    Dale Denton : We'll save it for next time. We'll keep it going.

  • Saul : I'm cold...

    Dale Denton : You're cold? Oh, I'm not cold at all. Here...

    [he starts to take off his coat] 

    Dale Denton : ... I run hot.

    Saul : Really?

    Dale Denton : Yeah.

    Saul : You got more...

    Dale Denton : Thick blood.

    Saul : ...body.

  • Saul : [as he is just about to punch Carol in the face]  You're in the jungle now, Baby!

  • Saul : A dude, a lady, and a cop? That like a massacre, man!

  • Dale Denton : Hey, man, what happened to your lip?

    Saul : Yeah... it looks like you've been crying or something...

    Red : Um, actually, my lip, that's a cold sore. And I've never had a cold sore before, so I cried.

    Saul : Dude, a cold sore? Does that mean like... herpes?

    Red : Yes, that's what it means. I have herpes.

    Saul : Herpes... Whoa, do you know how many, like, joints we've shared?

    Red : Yes, I know, I'm a disgusting person.

  • Dale Denton : He fucking killed him!

    Saul : Who killed who?

    Dale Denton : A cop, a lady, and a guy!

    Saul : A cop, a lady, and a guy, man? That's like a massacre. You saw it?

    Dale Denton : No, it was just a guy!

    Saul : What happened to the lady?

  • Saul : I wish we could just go nowhere.

  • Saul : You still got that bong I got you when I was in Tel Aviv?

    Red : Hell yeah, Bong Mitzvah! Hit it up, dude!

  • Saul : You know, don't get down on yourself: You got a great girl, you got a great job whete you don't go anything, you get to smoke weed all day... I wish I had that...

    Dale Denton : Are you kidd - you do, you have the easiest job on Earth. You DO smoke weed all day.

    Saul : ...Hahaha, that's true!

    Dale Denton : You didn't think of that, huh?

    Saul : I do have a good job...

    Dale Denton : Yeah, you do nothing!

    Saul : Thanks, man!

    Dale Denton : No problem.

    Saul : Thank you.

  • Saul : Yeah I know where he lives, what are you insinuating, that I'm forgetful?

    Dale Denton : [surprised and slightly impressed]  Insinuating...

    Saul : Yeah you know what that means? It means like...

    Dale Denton : I do what that means actually.

    Saul : seem like.

  • Saul : [giving 3 schoolboys pineapple express]  If anyone asks, you got it from Sau - -I mean... Santiago and... Dunbar.

  • Saul : [getting ready to smoke cross joint]  Okay here's what you do. You equip yourself...

    Dale Denton : I'm equipping! Equip me, sir!

  • Saul : What you do... is you light all three ends at the same, and the smoke converges, creating a *trifecta* of joint-smoking power. This is it, man. This is what your grandchildren are gonna be smoking. Future, that future.

  • Saul : What we do in this life echoes in eternity!

  • Red : [Red wakes up and is taped to a chair]  Hey, what's up, dudes?

    Dale Denton : What's up? Tell us everything now!

    Saul : Talk, Red.

    Red : I'm gonna flex and bust out of here.

    [Red tries to bust out] 

    Saul : Trapped.

    Dale Denton : It's not happening, Red.

    Red : Okay, I'll talk. Um, Ted Jones, he knows you witnessed the murder. He found your roach. He sent two guys over here, Budlofsky and Matheson. Two real big son of a bitches. They're basically out to kill you guys, and they're gonna kill me, too, unless I turn y'all over. So you guys are basically fucked.

  • Saul : [after Red tosses an ashtray, frisbee style, at Dale's head]  Holy cock!

    Dale Denton : [to Red]  Fuck you!

  • Matheson : You know you gonna die, right?

    Saul : Yeah.

    Matheson : I'm gonna kill the fuck out of you! I hope you enjoy these last seventeen minutes of your life.

  • Saul : Relax, man, just sit back and get ready to enjoy some of the rarest weed known to man.

    Dale Denton : It's really that rare?

    Saul : It's like the rarest. It's almost a shame to smoke it. It's like... killin' a unicorn... with, like, a bomb...

    Dale Denton : Are you the only guy in town who has this? You're actually the only guy?

    Saul : Yeah. My guy Red said he was givin' me an exclusive sneak preview.

    Dale Denton : And am I the only guy who you sold it to; the other guys got snicklefritz?

    Saul : Yeah. So *we're* like the only guys...

    Dale Denton : And Red got this from Ted?

    Saul : Ted's the man.

    Dale Denton : ...Let's get the fuck outta here, man! Go! Go! Let's go!

    Saul : What?

    Dale Denton : Let's go! Go!

    Saul : Why?

    Dale Denton : Because! I threw a roach of this outside of Ted's house!

    Saul : So what, man? I throw roaches all over the fuckin' town...

    Dale Denton : No! No, no! He could find the roach and say it's Pineapple Express in here! SAUL! He's the only guy who HAS Pineapple Express! He must've seen the murder or know - let's fuckin' kill him!

    Saul : Oh, fuck!

    Dale Denton : Let's get outta here! Wait, wait, stop, stop, stop, stop! Get weed! Get the weed!

    Saul : Okay.

    Dale Denton : Anything we might need: snacks, food, fruit roll-ups! Let's get the fuck outta here!

  • Saul : Oh, sick! You threw up on my printer!

    Dale Denton : I did.

    Saul : You break it?

    Dale Denton : I hope not.

  • [Saul throws his cell phone into the woods after suggesting that they can be traced] 

    Dale Denton : Whoa! What the fuck was that?

    Saul : I was trying to hit that tree. I missed.

    Dale Denton : What tree?

    Saul : That one.

    Dale Denton : Why didn't you smash it on a rock like a normal person like I did?

    Saul : I don't know! How often does somebody smash things? I'm rusty, fuck.

    Dale Denton : Oh, man, did you at least see where it landed?

    Saul : I don't know. Just call it.

    Dale Denton : Call it? With what? My phone has been smashed!

    Saul : [pauses]  Y'know, I bet they can't even triangulate those things.

    Dale Denton : Well, you shouldn't have said anything, because now you convinced me they can! You were very convincing back there!

    Saul : Okay, okay. Fine, I'll go find it. Fuck.

    Dale Denton : Do you see it?

    Saul : See what?

    Dale Denton : The phone, you idiot!

  • Saul : [Reaches for Dale's hand, trying to pull him into the air vent]  Give it to me!

    Dale Denton : Come on!

    Saul : Be taller!

    Dale Denton : [Gives up]  Be stronger!

  • Dale Denton : I'm here to save my best friend... I've got an idea! Rub your wrists against my belt buckle!

    [Saul does. It looks like humping] 

    Dale Denton : I'm gonna save you, man!

    Saul : [Grinds against Dale]  Yeah! Yeah!

    Dale Denton : Let me save you!

  • Saul : Smell it. SMELL it! Enjoy. It's like... God's vagina!

    Dale Denton : Uhhh!

    Saul : What, do you wanna bathe in it?

    Dale Denton : I just want to live in here!

    Saul : Yes, you wanna be it?

    Dale Denton : Oh, my God, I just wanna shove it up my nose and have that smell all day. That's amazing! It's beautiful!

    Saul : Shove it anywhere you like!

    Dale Denton : What's it called?

    Saul : Pineapple Express.

  • Budlofsky : [Matheson punches Saul]  Stand back! Ted wants him alive!

    Matheson : Why're you holding me back?

    Budlofsky : Ted wants him alive, okay?

    Matheson : I should be kicking his fucking teeth in!

    Budlofsky : If anybody's gonna beat him up, it's gonna be Ted.

    Matheson : I look like Hamburglar! And the Elephant Man!

    Saul : You look like someone fucked you up with a coffee pot, man!

    Budlofsky : Professional. Professional.

    Saul : Professional on this, bitch!

    Matheson : [to Saul]  Whatever, man.

    [to Budlofsky] 

    Matheson : And where were you?

    Budlofsky : I was there!

    Matheson : You're supposed to be my partner!

    Budlofsky : I was there!

    Matheson : No, you wasn't there! How did this happen, then?

    Saul : He's got good reflexes, man.

  • Saul : [Red throws ashtray at Dale's face]  Holy cock!

    Dale Denton : Fuck you!

    [runs away] 

  • [Matheson kills Budlofsky for refusing to refusing to shoot Saul when he had the chance] 

    Matheson : I knew you were going soft. Dinner's gonna be cold tonight, asshole!

    Saul : Fucked up, man.

    Matheson : [Points his gun at Saul]  Well looky here, Mr. Forges. Wussup, Saul?

    Saul : Look, I didn't want to hit you, man...

    Matheson : SHUT THE FUCK UP! You think you was gonna get me, motherfucker? Huh? You need to set your little sexy ass down and watch yourself get killed now!

    Saul : Alright! You know what, if this is how it's gonna be, alright. Silence!

    [Red drives his car into the barn, killing Matheson] 

  • Saul : [both are running away, Saul jumps into nearby dumpster]  Hey, in here!

    Dale Denton : [comes to a surprised stop]  What? WHOA! I gotta get to a phone, man, COME ON!

    Saul : [tired]  Why?

    Dale Denton : Why? Why, look! OK, if Red tells Ted's guys about


    Dale Denton : my name, They'll go to my apartment,


    Dale Denton : And there, I have Angie's name!

    [flailing arms] 

    Dale Denton : And they could put that all together, and they'll find us, Let's go!

    Saul : [still tired, realizing that he's dirty]  No, no. I think we should stay.

    Dale Denton : [mad]  WHY?

    Saul : 'Cause I'm in the dumpster already!

    Dale Denton : [mad still]  Well, then get out!

    [smells Saul and the dumpster] 

    Dale Denton : Ughh!

  • Red : [underneath a door]  TIME OUT! Time out!

    Saul : [stops jumping on the phone]  Okay, truce.

    Red : Time in! Fuck you!

    Saul : CHEATER!

    Red : I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry!

  • Saul : [giving 3 schoolboys some pineapple express]  But don't call it that. Call it... Banana Boat.

  • Robert : Get the FUCK out of my car, I can't believe you'd even think that would be an option.

    Saul : We gotta get away from the bad guys!

    Dale Denton : No, no, he's right. Come on, let's go.

    [Dale and Saul start to get out of the car] 

    Saul : The hell?

  • Saul : [Red spits in Saul's eye]  HERPES!

    Red : [smacks Saul with dustbuster and beats him on the ground]  You brought the devil into my house!

    Saul : [confused as to why Red is hitting him]  We're friends!

    Red : I know we are, that's what SUCKS!

    Saul : Are you on that meth shit again?

    [screams to Dale] 

    Saul : Dale, he's hurting me!

  • Saul : See, Dale here, is a... protest servant, and...

    Dale Denton : No, I'm not. That's not who I am.

  • Saul : Herpes is for life, bro!

    Red : Yeah, well, I'm gonna try to definitely put some sort of medical ointment on it. I've been takin Vicodin; that really doesn't take down the swelling, though.

    Saul : It's from that time. I told you, man! You wanted to eat that lollipop out of that stripper's snatch! You wanted to do it!

    Saul : Out of her vagina, I know! Remember what you did? What'd you do?

    Red : Nothing.

    Red : You ate a box of Nerds outta her butt-hoooole.
