“ Repo man is always intense.”
An ordinary person spends his life avoiding tense situations. A repo man spends his life getting into tense situations. Bud (Harry Dean)
“A lot o’ people don’t realize what’s really going on. They view life as a bunch o’ unconnected incidents ‘n things. They don’t realize that there’s this, like, lattice o’ coincidence that lays on top o’ everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you’re thinkin’ about a plate o’ shrimp. Suddenly someone’ll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o’ shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin’ for one, either. It’s all part of a cosmic unconsciousness.” Miller
“The more you drive, the less intelligent you are.” Miller
“Look at those assholes, ordinary fucking people. I hate ’em.” Bud
“- Duke: The lights are growing dim Otto. I know a life of crime has led me to this sorry fate, and yet, I blame society. Society made me what I am.
– Otto: That’s bullshit. You’re a white suburban punk just like me.
– Duke: Yeah, but it still hurts.”
“Good evening, Otto. This is Agent Rogersz. I’m going to ask you a few questions. Since time is short and you may lie, I’m going to have to torture you. But I want you to know, it isn’t personal.” Agent Rogersz
“You like music, listen to this. I was into these dudes before anyone. Wanted me to be their manager. I called bullshit on that. Managing a pop group is no job for a man.”
“- Otto: I’m a repo man.
– Leila: What’s that?
– Otto: It’s a repossessor, I take back cars from dildos who don’t pay their bills. Cool, huh?
– Leila: No.”
“You ever feel as if your mind had started to erode?”
I shall not cause harm to any vehicle nor the personal contents thereof, nor through inaction let that vehicle or the personal contents thereof come to harm. It’s what I call the Repo Code, kid. Don’t forget it–etch it in your brain. Not many people got a code to live by anymore. Bud
I don’t allow no Commies in my car…no Christians, either. Bud
“- Lagarto: Hermanos Rodriguez do not approve of drugs.
– Marlene: Neither do I, but it’s my birthday.”
“- Debbi: Duke, let’s go do some crimes.
– Duke: Yeah. Let’s go get sushi and not pay.”
“Don’t care how long it takes, dildos! Repo Man’s got all night, every night.” Bud
“- Bud: Credit is a sacredtrust, it’s what our free society is founded on. Do you think they give a damn about their bills in Russia? I said, do you think they give a damn about their bills in Russia?
– Otto: They don’t pay bills in Russia, it’s all free.
– Bud: All free? Free my ass. What are you, a fuckin’ commie? Huh?
– Otto: No, I ain’t no commie.
– Bud: Well, you better not be. I don’t want no commies in my car. No Christians either.”
