Dennis Hopper as Father

  • (Dennis Hopper) "No, your mother -- is not crazy. And neither, contrary to popular belief, is your brother crazy. He's merely miscast in a play. He was born in the wrong era, on the wrong side of the river -- With the ability to be able to do anything that he wants to do and -- findin' nothin' that he wants to do. I mean nothing."

Throw away a couple of years, a couple of years there -- it doesn't matter. You know. The older you get you say, "Jesus, how much I got? I got thirty-five summers left." Think about it. Thirty-five summers."

Nicolas Cage as Smokey

You might have gotten by for a while on the Motorcycle Boy's rep, but you have to be smart to run things. You ain't got your brother's brains.
