Quotes from "Chasing Bobby"
Written by Garland Testa
Directed by Anthony Lioi

PEGGY: We are seeing The Flowers of Time, rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America and PG-12 by Peggy Hill.

PEGGY: Oh, for God's sake, just take it to a mechanic.
DALE: Another man touching her all over? Playing with her manifolds?
BILL: And then making Hank pay for it?
HANK: Peggy, this truck has been through four presidents, three Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl victories, and zero mechanics.

BOBBY: To The Flowers of Time!

PEGGY: This movie is good enough to have been based on a novel.

DALE: Hank Hill is weeping like a little French girl!

PEGGY: Hank, come on, there's no reason to be ashamed about your crying. But yet, I am.

PEGGY: Now, I'm not a professional psychologist, but I am an amateur psychologist. And I think that your spontaneous eye-watering may have something to do with your father.
HANK: No, it has nothing to do with anything.
PEGGY: Think about it: you have a strained relationship with your dad, and your greatest fear is that he will die without telling you how much he loves you. You are Ethan Hawke, Hank!
HANK: That's just crazy talk. Our relationship is strained but fine.
PEGGY: Wait a minute, of course, why didn't I see it? You're right, you are not Ethan Hawke, you are Charlton Heston! Bobby is Ethan Hawke! Yes! Done.
HANK: No, no, it is not done!
PEGGY: You and Bobby are distant emotionally and very distant physically. And you know if you were ever pinned under a tractor, you know Bobby would not be able to lift it, and you wouldn't be able to tell him how much you love him. That is why you were crying, Hank.
HANK: No, there is something wrong with my eyes. Something seriously wrong. Yep, that's it.
PEGGY: Oh, so now you're the amateur doctor. Interesting.

HANK: Okay, you were right, I am crying. You happy now?
PEGGY: Well, I'm happy for me, but I am sad for you. But don't worry, honey, I will keep this between you, me, Bobby, and the family therapist we will undoubtedly need to see.
HANK: This isn't about Bobby. Charlton Heston isn't me or Bobby. Charlton Heston is my truck!

DALE: Hank's never gonna let this truck go, and we're the ones who are gonna suffer. We will now be rides to the auto zone, and "those chumps who will push my truck."
BILL: You can't blame Hank for being attatched to his truck. He loves it. And that's what you do when you love something -- you cling to it so it doesn't try to run away.
DALE: I've had my van for ten years. At the first sign of weakness, I'll shoot her myself!

HANK: What seems to be the problem with Mr. Clark?
MR. STRICKLAND: Well, it seems Enrique's been short-filling their tanks.
HANK: Why would he do that?
MR. STRICKLAND: Well, I... told him to.

MR. STRICKLAND: I don't like to get this sweaty unless I have a little lady to towel off on.

HANK: Dangit, Bobby, people will see that oil stain and think I'm a drunk.

HANK: I can't push her myself -- she's too solidly manufactured.

BOBBY: So that's the sound it makes when a train hits a truck. It was a little more truck-y than I would have thought, considering how much train there was.
HANK: This is all your fault! You killed my truck!
BOBBY: I was just trying to help. And if it wasn't the train, it would have been something else. That mechanic said it only had five hundred miles left.
HANK: Even if he was right, which he wasn't, if I had driven only five miles a year, I could have had her another hundred years.

SALESMAN: You're back!
HANK: Save your fancy come-ons for the Okies, okay?

MAN: You lookin' for a little kid, 'bout this big by this big? Said he was walkin' home.
HANK: What? Why didn't you try to stop him?
MAN: Looked like he could use the exercise.

HANK: Hm. Anti-lock brakes! That's why they didn't lock!

HANK: I'm sorry I blamed you for killing my truck. I know it wasn't intentional.
BOBBY: You're damn right it wasn't! You think you're the only one who loved that truck? I spent the best years of my life in that truck.
HANK: You did love my truck? I'm sorry I never got a chance to tell her that.

BOBBY: I love this truck!
HANK: Yeah, me too. But when we get back to the dealership, pretend you hate it.
