True Romance Quotes
Clarence Worley (Christian Slater): I always said, if I had to f uc k a guy… I mean had to, if my life depended on it…I’d ck Elvis.
Alabama (Patricia Arquette): I had to come all the way from the highways and byways of Tallahasse, Florida to Motor City, Detroit to find my true love. If you gave me a million years to ponder, I would never have guessed that true romance and Detroit would ever go together. And to this day the events that followed all seem like a distant dream. But the dream was real. It was to change our lives forever. I kept asking Clarence, why our world seemed to be collapsing and everything seemed so shitty and he’d say, “that’s the way it goes, but don’t forget it goes the other way.” That’s the way romance is usually that’s the way it goes but every once in a while…it goes the other way too.
Clifford Worley (Dennis Hopper): Who are you?
Vincenzo Coccotti (Christopher Walken): The Anti-Christ. You get me in a vendetta kind of mood, you tell the angels in heaven you never seen evil so singularly personified as you did in the face of the man who killed you. My name is Vincent Coccotti.
Clarence: You lined up buyers for me?
Dick Ritchie (Michael Rappaport): Listen Clarence, I’m not Joe Cocaine.
Dick Ritchie: I don’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out. All I got is kin’ Floyd.
Floyd (Brad Pitt): Don’t condescend me, man. I’ll f uckin’ kill ya, man.
Clarence Worley: I mean look at her, like she fell off the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.
Virgil: Now the first time you kill somebody, that’s the hardest. I don’t give a shit if you’re ‘ Wyatt Earp or Jack the Ripper. Remember that guy in Texas? The guy up in that f ‘ tower that killed all them people? I’ll bet you green money that first little black dot he took a bead on, that was the bitch of the bunch. First one is tough, no f ‘ foolin’. The second one… the second one ain’t no Mardis Gras either, but it’s better than the first one ’cause you still feel the same thing, y’know… except it’s more diluted, y’know it’s…it’s better. I threw up on the first one, you believe that? Then the third one… the third one is easy, you level right off. It’s no problem. Now… shit… now I do it just to watch their n’ expression change.
Clarence Worley: If there’s one thing this last week has taught me, it’s better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it.
[Lee Donowitz is discussing possible titles for his next film]
Lee Donowitz: What does Joe like?
Elliot Blitzer: Um…”Body Bags 2″.
Lee Donowitz: Oooo, that’s imaginative! I’ve got more taste in my penis.
Alabama: Amid the chaos that day, when all I could hear was the thunder of gunshots and all I could smell was the violence in the air, I look back and I’m amazed that my thoughts were so clear and true. That three words went through my mind endlessly repeating themselves like a broken record: “You’re so cool,” “You’re so cool,” “You’re so cool.” And sometimes Clarence asks me what I would’ve done if he had died, if that bullet had been two inches more to the left. To this I always smile as if I’m not going to satisfy him with a response. But, I always do. I tell him of how I would want to die. That the anguish and the want of death would fade like the stars at dawn and that things would be as much as they are now, perhaps. Except maybe I wouldn’t have named our son, Elvis.
