Sundance Kid


Sundance Kid: Well, I think I'll get saddled up and go looking for a woman.
Butch Cassidy: Good hunting.

Sundance Kid: What's your idea this time?
Butch Cassidy: Bolivia.
Sundance Kid: What's Bolivia?
Butch Cassidy: Bolivia. That's a country, stupid! In Central or South America, one or the other.
Sundance Kid: Why don't we just go to Mexico instead?
Butch Cassidy: 'Cause all they got in Mexico is sweat and there's too much of that here. Look, if we'd been in business during the California Gold Rush, where would we have gone? California - right?
Sundance Kid: Right.
Butch Cassidy: So when I say Bolivia, you just think California. You wouldn't believe what they're finding in the ground down there. They're just fallin' into it. Silver mines, gold mines, tin mines, payrolls so heavy we'd strain ourselves stealin' 'em.
Sundance Kid: [chuckling] You just keep thinkin', Butch. That's what you're good at.
Butch Cassidy: Boy, I got vision, and the rest of the world wears bifocals.

Butch Cassidy: This is no time for bravery. I'll let ya!

[Etta is surprised in her home as she is undressing by Sundance]
Sundance Kid: Keep going, teacher lady. [He points his pistol at her] It's OK, don't mind me. Keep on going. [She removes her outer slip] Put down your hair. Shake your head.
[****ing his gun, he threatens for her to undo the last remaining bits of clothing. Then he rises and approaches toward her with amorous intentions to force himself upon her]

Butch Cassidy: Neither?
Harvey Logan: Pick.
Butch Cassidy: I don't want to shoot with you Harvey.
Harvey Logan: [Draws a big knife] Anything you say, Butch.
'[Butch walks over to his horse, by Sundance]
Butch Cassidy: [in a low voice] Maybe there's a way to make a profit in this. Bet on Logan.
Sundance Kid: I would, but who'd bet on you?
Harvey Logan: Sundance, this doesn't concern you. When we're done, and he's dead, you're welcome to stay.
Butch Cassidy: [low voice, to Sundance] Listen, I don't mean to be a sore loser, but when it's done, if I'm dead, kill him.
Sundance Kid: [low voice to Butch] Love to.
[Waves to Harvey and smiles]
Butch Cassidy: [Walks back, and Harvey tenses to begin the fight] No, no, not yet. Not until me and Harvey get the rules straightened out.
Harvey Logan: Rules? In a knife fight? No rules.
[Butch throws dirt in Harvey's eyes and kicks him in the groin, who falls to his knees]
Butch Cassidy: Well, if there aint' going to be any rules, let's get the fight started. Someone count. 1,2,3 go.
Sundance Kid: [quickly] 1,2,3, go.
[Butch knocks Harvey out]
Flat Nose Curry: I was rooting for you all along, Butch
Butch Cassidy: Well, thank you, Flatnose. That's what sustained me in my time of trouble.

[after blowing the train car to smithereens] Think ya used enough dynamite there, Butch?

[Butch throws his bicycle away] The future's all yours, you lousy bicycles.

[singing] Don't ever hit your mother with a shovel. It will leave a dull impression on her mind.

Boy, you know every time I see Hole-in-the-Wall again, it's like seeing it fresh for the first time. And every time that happens, I keep asking myself the same question: how could I be so damn stupid to keep coming back here?

Butch and me have been talking it all over. Wherever the hell Bolivia is, that's where we're off to.

I got vision and the rest of the world wears bifocals.
