Armand 'The Blackbird' Degas:Real life? What the fuck is real life?
Girl in Hotel Room:Are you through?
Armand 'The Blackbird' Degas:Not yet.
Richie Nix:Well, my name's Richie Nix, in case you've ever heard of me. That's N-i-x; it's not the way Stevie Nicks spells hers.
Richie Nix:I read about this guy once who weighed 1200 pounds. Can you believe that? For breakfast he'd have like 2 pounds of bacon, a dozen eggs, some rolls. Then for lunch he'd have 4 hamburgers, 4 double cheeseburgers, 8 boxes of fries. For dinner: 3 ham steaks, 6 sweet potatoes, 6 or 7 regular potatoes, some stuffing.
[Nix has just tracked Wayne down to a convenience store]
Richie Nix:[taking a gun and a sack out]All right!
[places sack on register and says to cashier]
Richie Nix:It's your big day, honey, it's a double feature. Get your cash laid out on the counter, and get some gum.
[confronting Nelson for ransom money]
Richie Nix:[stroding in office with Blackbird]I told you wouldn't know which one I'm gonna be when I came in. Remember it?
Nelson Davies:[pretending to be dumb]What?
Richie Nix:On the phone?
Nelson Davies:I think you wanna talk to somebody downstairs that'll help you out.
Richie Nix:[to blackbird]You see that? He's playing dumb?
Armand 'The Blackbird' Degas:Well, he's fucking with you.
Richie Nix:You're gonna try to tell me I never spoke to you?
Armand 'The Blackbird' Degas:No, I think he said he doesn't remember the fucking conversation you had with him over the telephone.
Richie Nix:[looks at Blackbird]
Armand 'The Blackbird' Degas:Well, show him.
[making a short depth movement, Richie Nix goes to Nelson's desk picks up a mug and throws it. It goes flying very high and smashes into several pieces against the wall very loudly. Richie Nix takes a picture frame and throws it. It too goes flying real high and smashes against the wall loudly. Richie Nix looks around and spots a display of an anterior head on the wall. He jumps up onto the wall and pulls the display very hard. After a few seconds it comes off and he falls to the ground with it]
Richie Nix:[gets up, wipes the dust off and whips out his gun]Am I making my point? Do you got the cash or you're going to be a dead fucking real estate man.
Nelson Davies:[seeing he really means business]Okay, you win. It's downstairs, in the car.
[towards end of film]
Wayne Colson:Look, honey, just hear me out. I drove 400 miles. And 15 years to think about this. And a lot about what you've said lately. You're right, five's not a good number. It's terrible. So let's try six. And if we can make it to six, then we can try for seven.
