Thelma: Louise, shoot the radio
Louise: [she fires at the radio]
Thelma: The POLICE radio, Louise!

Louise, no matter what happens, I'm glad I came with you.

State Trooper: [sobbing] Please! I have a wife and kids.
Thelma: Oh really, well, you're lucky. You be sweet to them, especially your wife. My husband wasn't sweet to me. Look how I turned out.

Thelma: I know it's crazy, but I just feel like I got a knack for this shit.
Louise: I believe you do.

Thelma Dickerson: [with cliff in front of them and cops behind] Okay, then listen; let's not get caught.
Louise Sawyer: What're you talkin' about?
Thelma Dickerson: Let's keep goin'!
Louise Sawyer: What d'you mean?
Thelma Dickerson: [nods] ... Go.
Louise Sawyer: You sure?
Thelma Dickerson: Yeah.

Thelma: But, umm, I don't know, you know, something's, like, crossed over in me and I can't go back, I mean I just couldn't live.
Louise Sawyer: I know, I know what you mean. Anyway, don't wanna end up on the damned Geraldo show.

You could park a car in the shadow of his ass.

You said you 'n' me was gonna get out of town and for once just really let our hair down. Well darlin', look out 'cause my hair is comin' down!

Darryl: [phone rings] Hello?
Thelma: Darryl, it's me.
Darryl: [sounding cheerful] Thelma! Hello!
Thelma: [hangs up] He knows.
Louise: Shit!

Louise Sawyer: You mean you haven't asked him yet? Thelma, for Christ's sake. Thelma, is he your husband, or your father. It's just two days for God's sake. Don't be a child. Tell him you're with me. [grins] Tell him I'm having a nervous breakdown.
Thelma Dickerson: That don't carry much weight with Darryl. He already thinks you're out of your mind.

Thelma: You're a real live outlaw, aren't ya?
J.D.: Well I may be an outlaw, darlin', but you're the one stealing my heart.

Thelma: Are you sure we should be driving like this, I mean in broad daylight and everything?
Louise Sawyer: No we shouldn't, but I want to put some distance between us and the scene of our last goddamn crime.
