John Grady Cole: I guess the country lasts forever, people ain't but for a little while.
Lacey: You're just a deadhead. Just tell me one thing. What the hell would we want you with us for?
Jimmy: 'Cause I'm an American.
John Grady Cole: Lacey once asked me if I though God looks out for people. I guess he does. I say He's just about got to. I don't believe we'd make it a day, otherwise.
Captain Raul: Some crazy people can say that God is here. But God is not here. Everybody knows that God is not here.
John Grady Cole: What the hell are you doing?
Jimmy: Just sittin' here.
John Grady Cole: If this rain hits hard, there's gonna be a river come down through here like a train. You thought about that?
Jimmy: You ain't never been struck by lightning. You don't know what it's like.
John Grady Cole: You're gonna get drowned sittin' there.
Jimmy: Why that's all right, I ain't never been drowned before.
John Grady Cole: Well...I say no more.
Lacey: Where'd you git this gun?
Jimmy: At the gittin' place.
