Rayette (of her Tammy Wynette album): "I'm gonna play it again." Bobby: "You play that thing one more time, I'm gonna melt it down into hairspray."
Palm Apodaca: "I had to leave this place because I got depressed seeing all the crap. And the thing is, they're making more crap, you know? They got so many stores and stuff and junk full of crap I can't believe it." Bobby: "Who?" Palm Apodaca: "Who? Man, that's who. Pretty soon there won't be any room for Man. They're selling more crap that people go and buy than you can imagine. Ickk. Crap. I believe everybody should have a big hole where they throw the stuff in and burn it." Rayette: "They'd never find a hole big enough! Never! Now take me, now, look at me. When I was just one person, before I was with Bobby, I was collecting onto me more garbage, every day, til I was gettin' to thinkin', that I should get a disposal!" Palm Apodaca: "Disposal? What's that but more crap - I've never seen such crap."
Bobby (seated in a restaurant with Rayette and the two female hitchhikers): "I'd like a, uh, plain omelet, uh, no potatoes, tomatoes instead, a cup of coffee, and wheat toast." Waitress (points at the menu): "No substitutions." Bobby: "Whattya mean, you don't have any tomatoes?" Waitress (curtly): "ONLY what's on the menu. You can have a #2, a plain omelet - it comes with cottage fries and rolls." Bobby: "Now, I know what it comes with, but it's not what I want." Waitress: "I'll come back when you make up your mind." (turns to leave) Bobby: "Wait a minute. I have made up my mind. I'd like a plain omelet - no potatoes on the plate. A cup of coffee and a side order of wheat toast." Waitress: "I'm sorry, we don't have any side orders of toast. English muffin, or a coffee roll." Bobby: "Whattya mean, you don't make side orders of toast? You make sandwiches, don't cha?" Waitress: "Would you like to talk to the manager?"
Bobby: "You've got bread. And a toaster of some kind?" Waitress: "I don't make the rules." Bobby: "Ok, I'll make it as easy for you as I can. I'd like an omelet, plain, and a chicken salad sandwich on wheat toast, no mayonnaise, no butter, no lettuce. And a cup of coffee." Waitress: "A #2, chicken salad sand. Hold the butter, the lettuce, the mayonnaise, and a cup of coffee. Anything else?" Bobby: "Yeah, now all you have to do is hold the chicken, bring me the toast, give me a check for the chicken salad sandwich, and you haven't broken any rules." Waitress: "You want me to hold the chicken, huh?" Bobby: "I want you to hold it between your knees." Waitress: "You see that sign, sir? Yes, you all have to leave. I'm not taking anymore of your smartness and sarcasm!" Bobby: "You see this sign?" (slams the table setting onto the floor)
Catherine: "...You're a strange person, Robert. I mean, what would it come to? If a person has no love for himself, no respect for himself, no love of his friends, family, work, SOMETHING - how can he ask for love in return? I mean, why should he ask for it?"
Bobby (finally talking with his paralyzed father, alone, outside): "...Are you cold? ...I don't know if you'd be... particularly interested in hearing anything about me. My life, I mean... Most of it doesn't add up to much that I could relate as a way of life that you'd approve of... I move around a lot... not because I'm, looking for anything really, but... 'cause I'm getting away from things that get bad if I stay... Auspicious beginnings, you know what I mean?... I'm trying to imagine your, your half of this conversation... My feeling is, I don't know... that uh, if you could talk, we wouldn't be talking... That's pretty much the way that it got to be before I left..."
Bobby (to his paralyzed father): "...Are you all right? I don't know what to say... (starts sobbing) Tita suggested that we try to... I don't know. I think that she... I think that she feels that we've got... some understanding to reach... She totally denies the fact that we were never that comfortable with one another to begin with... The best that I can do is apologize... We both know that I was never really that good at it, anyway... I'm sorry it didn't work out..."
