Lynn Halsey-Taylor Quotes:

  • Lynn Halsey-Taylor: [Philo takes Lynn back to her trailer after the attempt on them by Schuyler... Philo parks the truck and prepares to get out... Lynn stops him] Philo... I'm scared.

    Philo Beddoe: Don't worry... I'm not going to let anything happen to you.

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: [crying] That's not what I'm afraid of. I'm afraid for Schuyler... please don't hurt him!

    Philo Beddoe: Well, that sonofabitch tried to blow my head off and he didn't even care that you were sitting next to me!

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: [hissing] You're just not too smart, are you? Why did you have to come? Why couldn't you quit like everybody else? You had to come chasing me and spoil it all!

    Philo Beddoe: I guess I'm just not too smart, that's all. 'Cause up to now, I'm the only one dumb enough to want to take you further than your bed.

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: [slaps him hard] I HATE YOU!

    [she slaps and punches him repeatedly]

    Harlan: Let's go.

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: Harlan... I've got a friend. It's OK though. He won't mind. He might just want to come along.

    Harlan: [thinking for a moment] Let's go.

    [Lynn stops when she sees Philo standing in the shadows]

    Harlan: Is this your...

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: [cutting him off] No.

    Harlan: You want to talk to him?

    Philo Beddoe: [to Harlan] The lady and I have a little business. I expect you'll be excusing us.

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: It's OK, Harlan. I'll just be a minute.

    Harlan: Are you sure?

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: Yes.

    [Harlan walks off]

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: [to Philo, coldly] It's your own goddamn fault. Who asked you to follow me?

    Philo Beddoe: [stunned] I just thought...

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: [interrupting] You thought? If you'd thought, you would've taken some very broad hints! I've been trying to get rid of you practically ever since the first night we met!

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: Take your hands off me!

    Schyler: [stepping from shadows] Lynn? Is everything all right?

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: Schuyler, this is the one from L.A... the one who's been following me. The big dumb one I told you about.

    Philo Beddoe: Schuyler with the shotgun?

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: That was MY idea. I was hoping he'd scare you away.

  • Philo Beddoe: [Philo and Lynn are riding in his truck] If you don't like him, they why do you stay with him?

    Philo Beddoe: For what?

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: For the down payment.

    Philo Beddoe: What do you want to buy?

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: My own club back home in Denver. I'm going to call it the Lynn Halsey-Taylor Drinking Fountain. That's going to be the name of my group too, and I'll have talent night three days a week.

    Philo Beddoe: How much of the $7,000 do you have already?

    Lynn Halsey-Taylor: He won't tell me.

  • Lynn Halsey-Taylor: What are you gonna do with them?
