Howard Polk: You’re late.
Mike Milo: For what?
Howard Polk: [moviequotesandmore.com] Back when we had winners, I was afraid to lose you to the competition. Five times you won the All-American Futurity, and every goddamn time I thought, “Oh, I won’t be able to keep Mike. Somebody’s going to grab him.” But that was a long time ago, wasn’t it? Yeah. That was before the accident. Before the pills. Before the booze.
Howard Polk: I’m not afraid of losing you to anybody now. You’re a loss to no one. It’s time for new blood.
Mike Milo: Yeah, I can see that.
Howard Polk: And you know what you’re late for?
Mike Milo: What?
Howard Polk: Clearing out your locker. Why don’t you do that on the way out? You going to say anything?
Mike Milo: No. I was just going to say, Howard, I’ve always thought of you as a small, weak, and gutless man. But, you know, there’s no reason to be rude.
Howard Polk: So you don’t lock your doors?
Mike Milo: Ain’t got nothing worth stealing.
Howard Polk: You look awful.
Howard Polk: Well, you’ve looked horrible longer, so I guess you win.
Mike Milo: [referring to Rafo] You want me to go down there and kidnap him? Bring him out of there?
Howard Polk: It’s not kidnapping if he’s your kid.
Mike Milo: It isn’t my kid, so I don’t think he’ll go with me in the first place.
Howard Polk: Yes, he would. He’ll listen to you, Mike. I know he will. He’ll know the minute he sees you, you’re a real cowboy. He’ll listen to you.
Howard Polk: [moviequotesandmore.com] You know what? You owe me, Mike. I was standing here, looking at all this, thinking about making the payments on this place for you. About helping you not lose it after you lost her and the boy. You know how many people told me to stop doing that? To just cut you loose. I said, “No. You know what? I owe Mike that much.” But I think you owe me a little bit, and you gave me your word. And that used to mean something, Mike.
Mike Milo: Yeah, I owe you.
Mike Milo: [as he arrives at Leta’s place] Why the hell would a kid ever want to leave this place?
Mike Milo: Usually when a woman laughs like that, a man’s fly is open.
Leta: That’s the only thing that’s not on the table.
Leta: [to Mike] You think you’re the first my ex-husband sent? The first one is in jail. Beastly man with no manners. The second was more amiable. Couldn’t find Rafo and left.
Leta: Tell me, cowboy, why does his father really want him now? He has no real love for the boy.
Mike Milo: Well, maybe he’s trying to change all that.
Leta: [moviequotesandmore.com] He’s like his father. He runs away. He hates his father. He hates me. So go home, Mr. Mike. Go home.
Mike Milo: When did you give up?
Leta: No matter what people say, some aren’t cut out to be parents.
Rafo: Touch me and I’ll kick your a**, old man.
Mike Milo: What the hell you talking about?
Rafo: You are a cowboy? A ranch hand?
Mike Milo: Yeah. That’s right. I’ve done a little of that.
Rafo: My father hasn’t seen me for years. Why does he want to see me now?
Mike Milo: Well, he wants to see you, that’s all. He misses you.
Rafo: You are full of s**t. My father doesn’t want me.
Rafo: When I was little, my father said he would give me a special horse. He never did. He’s a liar.
Mike Milo: Just a little late, that’s all. That doesn’t mean he’s a liar.
Rafo: Maybe I’ll go. Just for a while.
Mike Milo: Yeah. Good. Good, I think so.
Rafo: If I don’t like it, I will say, “To hell with him,” and come back.
Mike Milo: Yeah, that’s right. If you don’t like it, to hell with it.
Leta: And where is he?
Mike Milo: He said he was going to go out and get his stuff.
Leta: [in English and Spanish] You poor fool. He lied to you.
Mike Milo: [moviequotesandmore.com] Look, the only place you’re going to go is the hospital. Now give me the goddamn wallet.
Rafo: You get too angry. It’s not good for you at your age.
Mike Milo: Give me the wallet now!
Rafo: [tries to hit Mike] Eat s**t.
Mike Milo: What are you talking about, “Eat s**t?”
Rafo: [to Mike] You’re pretty quick for old man.
Mike Milo: I want you to take this chicken, tie his leg back down there, so it doesn’t, I don’t want him crapping on the upholstery here.
Mike Milo: What do you mean, “no”?
Rafo: No. And he’s not a chicken. His name is Macho.
Mike Milo: I don’t care if his name is Colonel Sanders. Just get his a** back there.
Rafo: [referring to his rooster] He’s Macho. You know what it means, “macho”? It means strong.
Rafo: [moviequotesandmore.com] If Macho sits with us, when he fights, I’ll give you half of the money.
Mike Milo: The day Macho sits up here, is the day I barbecue his a**.
Rafo: It’s not good for his spirit.
Mike Milo: Well, I’m really worried about that.
Rafo: But he’s strong now.
Rafo: He killed a very big rooster. From that time, he’s Macho. A champion.
Mike Milo: That’s the most exciting thing I’ve ever heard.
Rafo: You’re a veterinario?
Mike Milo: No. No, veterinario. I’ve just loved animals all my life.
Rafo: Macho. His name is Macho.
Mike Milo: Whatever.
Rafo: What’s wrong with that?
Mike Milo: Nothing. Guy wants to name his cock “Macho”, it’s okay by me.
Rafo: He’s macho, like me. Very strong rooster.
Mike Milo: When we get up in the States, you touch a man’s vehicle, that doesn’t go over.
Rafo: Yeah. I’ll remember when we get to Texas.
Mike Milo: Especially in Texas. And you can watch all that “macho” crap up there too. Nobody likes that stuff.
Rafo: [moviequotesandmore.com] On the street, I trust no one. But it’s safer than at home. You can never trust no one.
