Powers Boothe: Hardin



  • Cajun Trapper : I ain't gonna kill y'all if I don't got ta... you got a bayou over dere... take it... stay to the west side... you're gonna find a road about a mile up dere.

    Hardin : Do you mind tellin' us what the Hell this is all about?

    Cajun Trapper : It real simple... we live back in here... dis is our home, and nobody don't fuck with us.

    Hardin : [pointing at Bowden, who is hanging dead from a tree]  What about HIM?

    Cajun Trapper : What about 'im?

    Hardin : Did he do it to himself or did your friends help him out?

    Cajun Trapper : [fires shot at Hardin's feet]  Now, if I was you all, I'd quit askin' questions and haul ass... 'cause my buddies... dey not nice like me.

    Hardin : Are we supposed to say thanks?

    Cajun Trapper : You not supposed to say nuttin'... soldier.

  • Spencer : How long you been married?

    Hardin : Five years.

    Spencer : Happily?

    Hardin : Yeah. I like her, she's got a good sense of humor. Why do you ask?

    Spencer : Well, I just figured if I get out of here alive and you don't, I might look her up.

    Hardin : Hey, I said *she* has a good sense of humor. *I* don't.

  • Hardin : I got news for you. He's nuts. I mean really fuckin' nuts.

  • Spencer : Here's your ammo... blade to the throat, huh, that how they do these things in El Paso?

    Hardin : Yeah, that's how they do things where I grew up.

    Spencer : Thought you're some kind of chemical engineer.

    Hardin : I am, and I'm out of the habit of spending time with a bunch of gun-totin' rednecks.

    Spencer : Well, you know how it is, down here in Louisiana, we don't carry guns, we carry ropes, RC colas and moon pies, we're not too smart, but we have a real good time.

  • Hardin : Four of them with automatic weapons against some swamp rat. I make it even money.

  • Staff Sgt. Crawford Poole : [when they first meet]  So, Hardin, how do you like being in the Louisiana Guard?

    Hardin : [flat]  I don't. But then I didn't much like being in the Texas Guard, either.

    Staff Sgt. Crawford Poole : ...Well, not liking the Texas Guard makes sense. Not liking the LOUISIANA Guard can get you in trouble with me. You got that?

  • Spencer : Smokes made it through the water, huh?

    Hardin : Yeah, saved a pack. Lucky, huh?

  • Hardin : A truck! A fuckin' truck!
