Conan the King (Conan the Barbarian)

So it begins...

Movie Quote of the Week

The Blues Brothers



Mystery Woman

You contemptible pig! I remained celibate for you. I stood at the back of a cathedral, waiting, in celibacy, for you, with three hundred friends and relatives in attendance. My uncle hired the best Romanian caterers in the state. To obtain the seven limousines for the wedding party, my father used up his last favor with Mad Pete Trullo. So for me, for my mother, my grandmother, my father, my uncle, and for the common good, I must now kill you, and your brother.

Jake falls to his knees.

Jake

Oh, please, don't kill us. Please, please don't kill us. You know I love you baby. I wouldn't leave ya. It wasn't my fault.

Mystery Woman

You miserable slug! You think you can talk your way out of this? You betrayed me.

Jake

No I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I, I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts. IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD.

Elwood covers his head in anticipation of more gunfire, Jake removes his sunglasses to make a wordless appeal, and the Mystery Woman visibly softens.

Mystery Woman

Oh, Jake... Jake, honey...

Jake embraces the Mystery Woman and they kiss.

Jake
(to Elwood)

Let's go.

He drops the Mystery Woman and walks off.

Elwood
(to the Mystery Woman as he steps past her)

Take it easy.
