Sissy Spacek as Holly Sargis

  • (Sissy Spacek) "We planned a huge network of tunnels under the forrest floor, and our first order of business every morning was to decide on a new pathway for the day."
  • (Sissy Spacek) "He needed me now more than ever, but something had come between us. I'd stopped even paying attention to him. Instead I sat in the car and read a map and spelled out entire sentences with my tongue on the roof of mouth where nobody could read them."

Then one day hoping to begin a new life away from the scene of all these memories he moved us from Texas to Port Dupree, South Dakota."
  • (Sissy Spacek) "Kit and I were taken back to South Dakota. They kept him in solitary, so he didn't have a chance to get acquainted with the other inmates, though he was sure they'd like him, especially the murderers. Myself, I got off with probation and a lot of nasty looks. Later I married the son of the lawyer who defended me. Kit went to sleep in the courtroom while his confession was being read, and he was sentenced to die in the electric chair. On a warm spring night, six months later, after donating his body to science, he did."
  • (Martin Sheen) "Sir -- Where'd you get that hat?"

  • (Sissy Spacek) "At this moment, I didn't feel shame or fear, but just kind of blah, like when you're sitting there and all the water's run out of the bathtub."
  • (Sissy Spacek) "Did you hear about the guy at the nuthouse that walked around naked except for hat and gloves? This nurse came up to him and said, "You can't walk around that way."

  • (Sissy Spacek) "One day, while taking a look at some vistas in Dad's stereopticon, it hit me that I was just this little girl, born in Texas, whose father was a sign painter, who only had just so many years to live. It sent a chill down my spine and I thought where would I be this very moment, if Kit had never met me? Or killed anybody -- this very moment -- if my mom had never met my dad -- if she had never died. And what's the man I'll marry gonna look like? What's he doing right this minute? Is he thinking about me now, by some coincidence, even though he doesn't know me? Does it show on his face? For days afterwards I lived in dread. Sometimes I wished I could fall asleep and be taken off to some magical land, and this never happened."
