Forced to kill him in self-defense, rather than turn themselves in, they must go on the run.
[on their date]
Slim: What made you pick me?
Queen: I liked your picture.
Slim: Did you?
Queen: You had this sad look on your face, I felt sorry for you.
Slim: So what happens tonight?
Queen: Did you think we were going to have sex?
Slim: [chuckling] No. No. I thought we were going to hang out, maybe get to know each other.
Police Officer Reed: [to Slim] You were swerving a little bit back there. I’m going to ask you to step out of the vehicle for me.
[pointing his gun at Slim]
Police Officer Reed: Get on the ground!
Slim: Are you serious?
Queen: Why is he under arrest?
Slim: [to Queen] Just chill! Just chill!
Police Officer Reed: Get back in the car, or you’re going to jail too!
[Slim suddenly wrestles with the cop, gets the gun off him and accidentally shoots him]
Queen: What do you want?
Slim: I want to ride or die.
Slim: It was self-defense.
Queen: There is nothing back there for us.
[to Slim and Queen]
Uncle Earl: Ooh, well, if ain’t the black Bonnie and Clyde.
Slim: I ain’t going to bend the world. As long as my lady remembers me fondly, that’s all I need.
Queen: Can I be your legacy?
Slim: You already are.
Slim: I think everything is destined.
