Kelly Canter: I love that story.
James Canter: 'Cause it's true.
Beau Hutton: [they're riding on a train] So, what do you think?
Kelly Canter: I think I'm Kelly Canter and I'm breaking the law!
Chiles Stanton: Don't make me say it.
Beau Hutton: Say what?
Chiles Stanton: You're being very rude right now.
Beau Hutton: Tell me what you want.
Chiles Stanton: Nothing.
Beau's Mother: So you're opening for the looney tunes? They need to lock that one up and throw away the key.
Beau Hutton: She's not crazy.
Chiles Stanton: How do I look?
Beau Hutton: Like a Country Barbie.
Chiles Stanton: [happy] Thank you!
Beau Hutton: What are you looking at?

Beau Hutton: When did General MacArthur return to the Phillipines?
Chiles Stanton: 1946.
Beau Hutton: What does "amorous" means?
Chiles Stanton: Having a propensity for falling in love.
Beau Hutton: [laughing] What the hell are these things?
Chiles Stanton: Well... as a woman in this industry, people have a habit of thinking I'm some kind of ignoramous. And my pageant training doesn't exactly help things, so I have to overcompensate. I don't want people to think I'm some dumb beauty queen.
Beau Hutton: I never called you a dumb beauty queen. I'm serious, anybody that says "ignoramous" so casually... that's not dumb at all.
Beau's Bandmate: Ugh. Why don't y'all sleep together and get this over with?
Reporter: Chiles, who is your idol?
Chiles Stanton: Kelly Canter and Jesus Christ.
Beau Hutton: [to Kelly] You and Jesus Christ, who would have thought?
Kelly Canter: They love her.
Beau Hutton: I enjoy playing music, I don't care who it's for.
Kelly Canter: Don't be afraid to fall in love. It's the only thing that matters in life.
Chiles Stanton: Oh, hi Beau.
Beau Hutton: It would have been easier to wish me luck.
Chiles Stanton: I'm on board. I'm playing three songs tonight.
Beau Hutton: Says who?
Chiles Stanton: I happen to be in consideration as the new opening act for Miss Kelly Canter. James, my new manager, booked me this gig as a rehearsal... not that I need it.
Beau Hutton: Clint, tell me Garth Brooks here is not opening for me.
Clint: She's not, she's closing for you. Can't do nothing about it either.
Beau Hutton: This is your place, you can tell her no.
Clint: Not for James Canter, I can't.
Beau Hutton: You're gonna let this prom queen get up on stage? For Christ's, sake, Patsy Cline sang here.
Clint: I don't care, she's still gonna play. I'm not cutting your set, Beau, you got the same three songs.
Chiles Stanton: Don't worry, Beau. I have no intention of stealing your invisible career. See, I want one.
