Quotes from the Movie The Last Picture Show

I guess we broke up because we didn't like each other much to begin with.

Sonny Crawford

We ain't done nothin' wrong. Ain't we got a right to get married? How can you arrest us, just like that?

Sonny Crawford

But I can do it now, I know I can!

Duane Jackson

Listen, if you hear they busted up, let me know.

Duane Jackson

See you in a year or two, if I don't get shot.

Duane Jackson

My Gawd. I'm glad it wasn't on fire. I would have burned to death before you got one button undone.

Jacy Farrow

Oh, quit prissin'. I don't think you did it right, anyway.

Jacy Farrow

Not here. I'm too old for screwin' in cars. I don't like to hurry...I'm afraid to right now. I think my folks are watchin' me. They know I don't wanna go to college and they might think we're gonna run off and get married. We'll do it when it's safe. We've got all summer.

Jacy Farrow

Goodness, wouldn't it be just awful if Momma and Daddy got the police after us?...Well, I had to leave 'em a note, you know, so they wouldn't be worried out of their mind.

Jacy Farrow

Chicken-fry me a steak. And try to use meat this time.

Sam the Lion

121 to 14. Must be pretty near a record...I reckon ya all need glasses.

Sam the Lion

You'd better take some for some insurance. Take money below that border - it sorta melts sometimes...And try not to drink too much of that buggy water...You catch the clap - you'll wish you hadn't drunk nothin'. Oh well, we'll see ya.

Sam the Lion

What am I doing apologizin' to you? Why am I always apologizin' to you, ya little bastard? Three months I been apologizing to you, without you even bein' here. I haven't done anything wrong - why can't I quit apologizin'? You're the one oughta be sorry. I wouldn't still be in my bathrobe if it hadn't been for you. I'da had my clothes on hours ago. You're the one made me quit carin' if I got dressed or not. I guess just because your friend got killed you want me to forget what you did and make it all right. I'm not sorry for you. You'd've left Billy, too, just like you left me. I bet you left him plenty a nights, whenever Jacy whistled. I wouldn't treat a dog that way. I guess you thought I was so old and ugly you didn't owe me any explanation. You didn't need to be careful of me. There wasn't anythin' I could do about you and her - why should you be careful of me? You didn't love me. Look at me. Can't you even look at me? Y'see? You shouldn't have come here. I'm around that corner now. You've ruined it and it's lost completely. Just your needing me won't make it come back.

Ruth Popper

Never you mind, honey, never you mind.

Ruth Popper

One thing I know for sure - a person can't sneeze in this town without somebody offerin' him a handkerchief...it's an awful small town for any kinda carryin' on...And some people got a lotta guns.

Genevieve

Good place for him, too...That boy's always had meanness in him, 'cause Jacy's just the kinda girl that brings out the meanness in a man. She's just like her grandmother. I oughtn't to talk about 'em anyhow. We was all good friends once. Dan roughnecked with Gene Farrow. He and Lois - they used to live in this little one room place over the newspaper office. Lois couldn't afford a flour-sack, much less a mink. I've always had a soft spot for her, though. Yeah, I wondered a lotta times, you know, what would've happened if my Dan had made the strikes that Gene made. They offered that rig to him first, yep, but then Morgan never took a chance in his life.

Genevieve

You gotta be men like the rest of us - ain't none of you pretty enough to be women...If you'all didn't jack off so damn much, maybe you could stay in shape.

Coach Popper

Just remember, beautiful, everything gets old if you do it often enough. So if you wanna find out about monotony real quick, marry Duane.

Lois Farrow

Keeled over on one of the snooker tables. Had a stroke. He left you the poolhall, Sonny. What do you think about that? He left Genevieve the cafe. That's the only thing he done that made any sense. Left the picture show to old Miss Mosey. Hell, she's too far gone to even run a popcorn machine. And the craziest thing of all. He left a thousand dollars to Joe Bob Blanton, the preacher's boy.

Andy Fanner

Think I worked like a dog all my life so my daughter could end up in a poolhall?

Gene Farrow
