The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989) Poster

Jeff Bridges: Jack Baker



  • Jack Baker : Listen to me, princess. We fucked twice. That's it. Once the sweat dries, you still don't know shit about me. Got it?

    Susie Diamond : I know one thing. While Frank Baker was home putting his kids to sleep last night, little brother Jack was out dusting off his dreams for a few minutes. I was there. I saw it in your face. You're full of shit. You're a fake. Every time you walk into some shitty daiquiri hut, you're selling yourself on the cheap. Hey, I know all about that. I'd find myself at the end of the night with some creep and tell myself it didn't matter. And you kid yourself that you've got this empty place inside where you can put it all. But you do it long enough and all you are is empty.

    Jack Baker : I didn't know whores were so philosophical.

    Susie Diamond : At least my brother's not my pimp. You know, I had you pegged for a loser the first time I saw you, but I was wrong. You're worse. You're a coward.

  • Jack Baker : Who I fuck and who I don't fuck is none of your fucking business!

  • Jack Baker : You look good.

    Susie Diamond : You look like shit.

    Jack Baker : No, I mean it. You look good.

    Susie Diamond : I mean it, too. You look like shit.

  • Jack Baker : You let that guy turn us into clowns tonight. We were always small time, but we were never clowns.

  • Jack Baker : There's always another girl.

    [several scenes later] 

    Susie Diamond : So, did you find another girl?

    Jack Baker : I didn't look.

  • Jack Baker : What's happened to you? Have you been kissing ass so long, you're starting to like it?

  • Jack Baker : Frank, if somebody requested "Chopsticks," you'd ask for the sheet music.

  • Susie Diamond : You're good, aren't you?

    Jack Baker : I can carry a tune.

    Susie Diamond : You're better than that.

  • Susie Diamond : So, make any resolutions?

    Jack Baker : No, you?

    Susie Diamond : Nah, I figure all that stuff's a bunch of crap, anyway. You do what you do, right?

  • Frank Baker : Jesus, when was the last time we played the Mallory?

    Jack Baker : '78, November.

    Frank Baker : Right, it was someone's birthday... Halloran?

    Jack Baker : He had a daughter, sweet sixteen.

    Frank Baker : Oh Christ! How could I forget? What a nightmare!

    Jack Baker : She asked for it!

    Frank Baker : I told Halloran we didn't do vocals, and he said, "What my Sissy wants..."

    Jack Baker : "My Sissy gets!"

    Jack Baker : [Leering]  She got it, all right!

  • Jack Baker : What do you want from me? You want me to tell you to stay, hmm? Is that what you're looking for? You want me to get down on my knees and beg you to save the Baker Boys from doom? Forget it, sweetheart. We survived for 15 years before you strutted onto the scene. Fifteen years. Two seconds, you're bawling like a baby. You shouldn't be wearing a dress; you should be wearing a diaper.

  • Frank Baker : I'm sorry. I'm a bit wound up.

    Jack Baker : Frank, you're a fucking alarm clock.

  • Jack Baker : Would you stop that please.

    Nina : [while loudly playing with her paddle ball]  You want me to make some coffee? How 'bout some eggs? I can make you some eggs, if you want.

    Jack Baker : Knock it off with that fucking thing... driving me nuts! Jack you want eggs, Jack you want coffee. You're not my housekeeper, I'm not your fucking father. I can't babysit you every time your mama gets an itch!

  • [repeated lines] 

    Frank Baker : You hit me!

    Jack Baker : I told you I was gonna hit you.
