Cape Fear (1991) Poster


Jessica Lange: Leigh Bowden



  • Leigh Bowden : Stop! Stop!

    Max Cady : Yes, Leigh?

    Leigh Bowden : Listen to me, Max, listen to me. You know, Max, since all this started, I've thought about you all the time. I've tried to imagine what it must have been like for you, all those years locked up in jail... I've tried to imagine you and even your crimes, and how you must have felt in those moments that you did them... See, I know about loss, Max. I know about losing time, even losing years. And I know it doesn't compare to jail, but I can understand. And I can share this with you. Because of that, whatever it is you've got planned, I want you to do it just with me... not with her... because... we have this connection.

  • Sam Bowden : I know how the dog died.

    Leigh Bowden : Sam, are you dreaming?

    Sam Bowden : No, no, I just had the weirdest feeling that he


    Sam Bowden : was already in the house.

  • Leigh Bowden : You don't know Danny. If she finds a palmetto bug in her bedroom, she takes it outside. She could never kill anything.

    Claude Kersek : Even a six-foot palmetto bug?

  • Leigh Bowden : I'd like to know just how strong we are. Or how weak. But I guess the only way we're gonna find that out is just by going through this.

  • Leigh Bowden : [about Cady]  I'd still like to kill him.

  • Max Cady : You will now have an opportunity. "What is that opportunity?", you ask. Why, here and now, we have an opportunity to depict and dramatize...

    Leigh Bowden : Oh, no!

    Max Cady : ...both the heights and the depths of a mama's true love for her daughter, if y'all get my meaning. C'mon out, baby, let's go. C'mon darling. Get out.

    [shoves Danielle up on the table] 

    Max Cady : Get up here.
