Is he your husband or your father?

Louise Sawyer

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.

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

Darryl: [phone rings again] Yep?
Louise Sawyer: Darryl, this is Louise. Lemme talk to the police.
Darryl: Hey Louise!
Louise Sawyer: Hi. Lemme talk to the police.
Darryl: [so sarcastically, it exposes their cover] What? What are you talking about, there's no police here.

You finally got laid properly, I'm so proud.

Louise Sawyer

Well, I've always believed that if done properly, armed robbery doesn't have to be an unpleasant experience.

J.D.

Certain words and phrases just keep drifting through my mind, things like, incarceration, cavity search, death by electrocution, life in prison, shit like that, know what I'm sayin', so do I want to come out alive...

Louise Sawyer

Where do you get off behaving that way with women you don't even know, huh? How'd you feel if someone did that to your mother or your sister or your wife?

Louise Sawyer

You get what you settle for.

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.

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.

You let her go, you fuckin' asshole, or I'm gon' splatter your ugly face all over this nice car!
