Midnight Cowboy Quotes

  • Ratso Rizzo: I gotta get outta here, gotta get outta here. Miami Beach, that's where you could score. Anybody can score there, even you. In New York, no rich lady with any class at all buys that cowboy crap anymore. They're laughin' at you on the street.
    Joe Buck: Ain't nobody laughin' at me on the street.
    Ratso Rizzo: Behind your back, I've seen 'em laughin' at you, fella.
    Joe Buck: Aw, what the hell you know about women anyway? When's the last time you scored, boy?
    Ratso Rizzo: That's a matter I only talk about at confession. We're not talkin' about me now.
    Joe Buck: And when's the last time you've been to confession?
    Ratso Rizzo: It's between me and my confessor. And I'll tell ya another thing. Frankly, you're beginning to smell. And for a stud in New York, that's a handicap.
    Joe Buck: Well, don't talk to me about clean. I ain't never seen you change your underwear once the whole time I've been here in New York. And that's pretty peculiar behavior.
    Ratso Rizzo: I don't have to do that kind of thing in public. I ain't got no need to expose myself.
    Joe Buck: [cruelly] No, I bet you don't. I bet you ain't never even been laid! How about that? And you're gonna tell me what appeals to women!
    Ratso Rizzo: I know enough to know that that great big, dumb cowboy crap of yours don't appeal to nobody except every jockey on 42nd Street. That's faggot stuff! You wanna call it by its name? That's strictly for fags!
    Joe Buck: John Wayne! You wanna tell me he's a fag? [after a long pause]
    Joe Buck: I like the way I look. It makes me feel good. It does. And women like me, god-dammit. Hell, only one thing
  • Shirley: You fell. Hey fella, you fell.
  • Ratso Rizzo: I'm walking here! I'm walking here!
  • Joe Buck: I only get carsick on boats.
  • Ratso Rizzo: I'm walking here! I'm walking here!
