My Own Private Idaho (1991) Poster

Keanu Reeves: Scott Favor



  • Scott Favor : I only have sex with a guy for money.

    Mike Waters : Yeah, I know.

    Scott Favor : And two guys can't love each other.

    Mike Waters : Yeah.

    Mike Waters : Well, I don't know. I mean... I mean, for me, I could love someone even if I, you know, wasn't paid for it... I love you, and... you don't pay me.

    Scott Favor : Mike...

    Mike Waters : I really wanna kiss you, man... Well goodnight, man... I love you though... You know that... I do love you.

  • Scott Favor : It's when you start doing things for free, that you start to grow wings. Isn't that right, Mike.

    Mike Waters : What?

    Scott Favor : Wings, Michael. You grow wings, and become a fairy.

  • Scott Favor : Look Mike, sandwiches!

  • Scott Favor : Why, you wouldn't even look at a clock unless hours were lines of coke, dials looked like the signs of gay bars, or time itself was a fair hustler in black leather.

  • Bob Pigeon : Scott. When you inherit your fortune, on your twenty-first birthday, let's see... how far away is this?

    Scott Favor : One week away, Bob, just one more week.

    Bob Pigeon : Let's not call ourselves robbers, but Diana's foresters. Gentlemen of the shade. Minions of the Moon. Men of good government.

    Scott Favor : [under his breath]  When I turn twenty-one, I don't want any more of this life. My mother and father will be surprised at the incredible change. It will impress them more when such a fuck-up like me turns good than if I had been a good son all along. All the past years I will think of as one big vacation. At least it wasn't as boring as schoolwork. All my bad behavior I'm going to throw away to pay my debt. I will change when everybody expects it the least.

  • Mike Waters : [in a coffee shop]  How'd we get home?

    Scott Favor : That German guy. Hans. He brought you downtown, you were passed out. He said he was heading to Portland, so I asked him for a ride.

    Mike Waters : For some reason I'm forgetting a German guy named Hans.

    Scott Favor : Well. You were sleeping.

    Mike Waters : How much do you make off me while I'm sleeping?

    Scott Favor : Just a ride, Mike. I don't make anything. What, you think that I sell your body while you are asleep?

    Mike Waters : Yeah.

    Scott Favor : [Scott stirs his coffee]  No, Mike. I'm on your side.

  • Scott Favor : When you wake up, wipe the slugs off your face. Be ready for a new day!

  • Scott Favor : But how could you see green if it was so dark you could not see your own hand?

  • Scott Favor : Getting away from everything feels good.

    Mike Waters : Yeah, it does.

    Scott Favor : When I left home, the maid asked me where I was off to. I said "Wherever. Whatever. Have a nice day."

    Mike Waters : You had a maid. If I had a normal family, and a good up-bringing, then I would have been a well-adjusted person.

    Scott Favor : It depends on what you call normal.

    Mike Waters : Yeah, it does. Well, you know. Normal. Like a mom and a dad and a dog, and shit like that. Normal. Normal.

    Scott Favor : So, you didn't have a normal dog?

    Mike Waters : No, I didn't have a dog.

    Scott Favor : Didn't... or... didn't have a normal dad?

    Mike Waters : Didn't have a dog or a normal dad anyway, yeah. That's alright. I don't feel sorry for myself. I mean, I feel like I'm... I feel like I'm... you know... well-adjusted.

  • Scott Favor : I never thought I could be a real model, you know fashion-shit, cause I'm better at full body stuff It.8 okay so long as the photographer doesn't come on to you and expect something for no pay I'm trying to make a living, you know, and I like to be professional 'Course if the guy wants to pay me, then shit-yeah. Here I am for him. I'll sell my ass, I do it on the street all the time for cash. And I'll be on the cover of a book. It's when you start doing it for free that you start to grow wings, Right, Mike?
