Quotes from the Movie Badlands

You get a little money in your pocket, you think all your problems are solved. Well, let me tell you, they're not.

Kit Carruthers

Name's Carruthers. Believe I shoot people every now and then. Not that I deserve a medal

Kit Carruthers

Well, you boys have performed like a couple of heroes. And don't think I'm not gonna pass it around when we get to town.

Kit Carruthers

Don't worry now, I'm gonna get you off these charges. There's a whole lot of other boys out there waitin' for ya. You're gonna have a lot of fun. Boy, we rang the bell, didn't we? I'll say this though, that guy with the deaf maid? He's just lucky he's not dead, too. Course, uh, too bad about your dad...We're gonna have to sit down and talk about that sometime.

Kit Carruthers

Just thought I'd come over and say hello to ya. I'll try anything once....Listen, Holly, you, uh, I don't know, want to take a walk with me?

Kit

Aw, I got some stuff to say. Guess I'm kind of lucky that way. Most people don't have anything on their minds, do they? Oh, incidentally, my last name is Carruthers. Sounds a little too much like 'druthers,' huh?

Kit

Ah, well, nobody asked me what I thought. They just hung it on me.

Kit

You still in school?

Holly

Nah, I have a job.

Kit

Well, I don't mind getting up early, so I got a job throwing garbage. I'm not in love with the stuff, OK?

Kit

I know what my daddy's gonna say...well, that I shouldn't be seen with anybody that collects garbage.

Holly

Why did you leave?

Clerk

I just felt like it.

Kit

What kind of work do you think you'd be qualified for? I just gotta get this.

Clerk

I can't think of anything at the moment. I want you to write me out a slip, though, proving I came down here.

Kit

Well, stop the world.

Holly

Hey, I quit my job.

Kit

It seemed like the right move...Well, I'm gonna work as a cowboy now... or thinking about it. It's a routine, like anything. What do you think?

Kit

I don't know.

Holly

That way, we'd never forget what happened today.

Kit

But it would hurt.

Holly

Well, that's the point, stupid.

Kit

Don't call me stupid.

Holly

OK, but I'm gonna keep it for a souvenir - or maybe one that's lighter.

Kit
