Get Low (2009) Poster


Robert Duvall: Felix Bush



  • Felix Bush : There are a whole lot of things you don't know. Like what a, ya know, a dog dreams. You can make up a story about him chasing rabbits. But you don't know if there's rabbits in there or not. And he can't tell you now, can he? People don't say what they mean, either, so you don't know anymore about them than you do about that dog's dream.

  • Felix Bush : There's alive and there's dead. And there's a worse place in between them, that I hope you never know nothing about.

  • Felix Bush : I built my own jail and put myself in it. And I stayed in it for 40 goddamn years! No wife. No kids, no friends, no nothing. No grandchildren. I wouldn't even know how to hold a baby. You hear me? Forty years. Now, that's not enough?

    Rev. Charlie Jackson : You know it's not.

  • Felix Bush : [to Buddy]  For every one like me, there's one like you, son. I about forgot that.

  • Frank Quinn : How ya fixed for underwear?

    Felix Bush : I don't wear none!

    Frank Quinn : One question too many.

  • Felix Bush : Well, you better stay close.

    [extends his arm to Mattie] 

    Felix Bush : Because some big old wildcat has been eating my chickens.

    Felix Bush : Or maybe it was me.

  • Felix Bush : They keep talking about forgiveness. "Ask Jesus for forgiveness." I never did nothing to him.

  • Felix Bush : What did everybody say about what happened in town? That crazy son of a bitch tried to kill a man for no reason, is that it?

    Buddy : There's two sides to every story.

    Felix Bush : People say that but they don't believe it, no, sir. They think what they think, and they don't wanna know anything else.

    Buddy : I also think that people are so scared about what they don't know that they make things up to feel better about it.

    Felix Bush : Like life after dying, you know. Heaven.

    Buddy : I also hope that part's true, don't you?

    Felix Bush : I don't think we know the actual truth about anything.

    Buddy : I know I don't. I'm just guessing most of the time.

  • Buddy : [finding him in the barn]  What are you doing, sir?

    Felix Bush : Getting me a suntan.

  • Felix Bush : I didn't want forgiveness. No. I needed to hold on to what I did, to be sick from it every day of my life.

  • Felix Bush : [waiving to coach]  My funeral, and everybody's in there, but me.

  • Felix Bush : [on meeting Mattie]  She turned around and I promise you that I didn't know I had a heart until right then.

  • Felix Bush : If you don't listen, you can't hear nothing.

  • Felix Bush : Bout time for me to get low.

    Rev. Gus Horton : Get what?

    Felix Bush : Down to business. I need a funeral.

    Rev. Gus Horton : For whom?

    Felix Bush : For me.

  • [first lines] 

    Rev. Gus Horton : Good morning, sir.

    Felix Bush : It's a hard life if you can't read.

    Rev. Gus Horton : Pardon?

    Felix Bush : [gestures toward NO DAMN TRESPASSING sign] 

  • Felix Bush : Fancy car for the dead.

    Frank Quinn : I didn't buy it for them.

  • Felix Bush : Buy a ticket, son. Tell a story.

  • Felix Bush : I did somethin' I was ashamed of. Somethin' I couldn't ever fix. Y'all probably think you know what you'd do and what you wouldn't. I wish you good luck with that, I really do.

  • Frank Quinn : [Felix is about to get a haircut and a shave] 

    [to Barber] 

    Frank Quinn : I wish you wouldn't do that yet.

    [to Felix] 

    Frank Quinn : Mr. Bush, you can cut all the hairs you want after we've taken your picture. I'll pay for it.

    Felix Bush : Why you want my picture made?

    Buddy : We want to run an ad in some papers about your party. Hang some posters up of you.

    Felix Bush : You want me to look like this?

    Frank Quinn : Yes.

    Felix Bush : Why?

    Frank Quinn : Why?


    Buddy : Well, it's how people recognize you, sir.

    Frank Quinn : And you want as many people to come as possible. So...

    Felix Bush : So... crazy nutter draws more, hm?

    Frank Quinn : [pauses]  Don't you think?

    Felix Bush : Oh.

    [Get's out of barber chair and leaves]
