You're not saying anything.

It's all just lies.

There's nothing left to say.

I ain't lying this time.

And how do I know that?

I might have stretched

the truth sometimes,

but I did kill Becky.


[man vocalizing]


You're just like your mama.

You thought you was

different, but you ain't.




You said you loved me.

[D.A. Farino] Let's say you did.

Why? Why'd you do that?

'Cause I love her.

Friday around midnight

Got nothin' to kill but time

Little voices in my head

keep whisperin' "homicide"

And my baby's

driving me to drink

I can't listen to

her I can't think

I steal a police

car but I don't drive

Well, I crash the car

I'm lucky to be alive

Well, I stumble home

Fall through the door

I end up passed

out on the floor

When I come to I'm in

a pool of gin and blood

Oh, I can't remember

what it is I've done

Oh, is this real

Is this a dream

Nightmares in my bloodstream

[Becky] I don't think you're

old, He Let's look at it this way.

If you live to be a hundred, you ain't

even halfway through your life yet.

Criminals don't live that long.

Henry ain't gonna live that long.

He's a drunk and a killer.

Hey, man, don't you

talk that way about me.

I ain't no killer.

Some people got it comin ', that's all.

Like that guy over there. You see him?

He's wavin' us down like

I got nothin' better to do.

I know exactly what you mean.

What b-be-- What,

because his car broke down

means that we gotta stop

goin' where we gotta go?



That boy had it comin',

gettin' in our way and all.

Don't nobody mess with

bad, bad Henry Lee Lucas.

Where are we goin', anyway?

Don't matter. We're just goin'.

We're goin' where the road ends.

That's so romantic.

Ain't Henry romantic, Uncle Ottis?

It's just like that movie

, A Racecar Named-- Named--

- Aw, bullshit. You never seen that movie.

- Ah, I don't remember.

I seen it!

Fine. It's decided.

We're goin g to the movies.

- [gleeful squeal]

- [chuckles]

[woman on screen whimpering]

Shit, it's that easy?

Oh, come on! Give him what he deserves!


[woman on screen sobbing]

Kill those bitches!


I said kill 'em!

- [man on screen] I just wanted you to know that I love you.

- Quiet!

-That's all.

- Hey, buddy.

Why don't you just shut the hell up?

I'm getting sick and tired of this shit.

[man on screen] ...you treated

me like a fucking loser!

It ain't nothin'. Don't pay

any attention to that jerk-off.

[man] Hey, now why don't you

guys just take this shit outside.

We're trying to watch a movie here.

And I'll prove it to you! I'll prove

it to every last fucking one of you!

[woman on screen]

I'm not that-- I--

[man on screen] Bitch,

you're so lucky right now.

Oh, you're so lucky right now.

Would you knock it off!

You're all the same. You're all the

fucking same. You're all a bunch of liars.

- Lying to me.

- [gagging]

Lying to me my whole life. Lying!


My whole life filled with

lies from you bitches!

[Ottis laughs]

Henry, where are you going?

Henry, I liked that movie!

[woman on screen] Please, I'll do

whatever you want. Just let me go.

Oh, you're not like them.

You're not like the others? No?

- I just want to see my mom.

- Bullshit.


Shh... [sniffs]

Leaving so soon? [laughing]

- [muffled screaming]

-[man on screen howling]

[muffled screaming continues]

Henry Lee, that is the last time I

let you take me out of a movie early,

and I liked that one,

and I'm mad at you.

Oh, shut up. Come on.

It wasn't that good.

- I liked it.
