Karl: "Some folks call it a Sling-blade, I call it a Kaiser Blade. (Grunt)."


Doyle: Not that you two afflicted sumbitches know anything about this, but you're sitting in a crew cab dualie pickup. In some circles, this is considered a piece of automotive art.


Doyle: Hey is this the kind of retard that drools and rubs shit in his hair and all that, 'cause I'm gonna have a hard time eatin' 'round that kind of thing now. Just like I am with antique furniture and midgets. You know that, I can't so much as drink a damn glass of water around a midget or a piece of antique furniture.

Linda: Doyle, you're awful. You shouldn't be that way.

Doyle: I ain't saying it's right, I'm just telling the damn truth. He'll make me sick. I know it.


Karl: " I guess I am going to have to get used to lookin at perty people, and perty people going to have to get used to lookin at me"

Karl: " The bible says that two men ought not lay together, but i don't think the good lord is going to send you to hades"

Karl: "mustards good on 'em to me"
