Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)
Julian Dennison: Ricky
Ricky Baker : [reading wanted poster] "Faulkner is cauc-asian" - well, they got that wrong because you're obviously white.
Ricky Baker : [Reciting a haiku he wrote] Kingi you wanker / You arsehole, I hate you heaps / Please die soon, in pain.
Ricky Baker : I didn't choose the skuxx life, the skuxx life chose me.
Ricky Baker : Trees. Birds. Rivers. Sky. / Running with my Uncle Hec / Living forever.
Ricky Baker : It was a relaxing song... and a relaxing sausage.
Ricky Baker : Uncle, you're basically a criminal now. But on the bright side, you're famous.
Ricky Baker : Here we go. Reckon you can handle it?
Hec : What do you think? Reckon you can find that bird?
Ricky Baker : Yeah, I think I know where it is.
Hec : Seem to remember it was a pretty beautiful place.
Ricky Baker : Yeah, majestical. Come on, let's go. Don't slow me down, old fella.
Hec : You keep up with yourself, young player. Get in my way I'll have your guts for garters.
Ricky Baker : I honestly don't know what "guts for garters" is, so...
Hec : Those gangster talk.
Ricky Baker : Yeah, we didn't choose the Skux life.
Hec : The Skux life chose us.
Ricky Baker : Yeah.
Ricky Baker : Shit just got real! Back up, homies, and let go of my uncle!
Hec : You can take him, but I'm staying here.
Hugh : Like hell. People want answers.
Ron : Yeah, answers.
Hec : Look, we got lost, I got injured, he's fine, it was basically a holiday.
Ricky Baker : Not a real holiday because he made me do stuff.
Hugh : Like what?
Ricky Baker : Just stuff. He had a sore leg so he made me do things for him. It was hard at first because my hands are so soft, but I got used to it. I didn't really wanna do it, but it was the only way to survive. It wasn't always hard, sometimes I got to do my own thing. He pretty much never joined in with me though. I asked if he wanted to play with me, but he would just make me play with myself.
Ron : I feel sick.
Ricky Baker : Ricky town, population... Ricky
Ricky Baker : He's molestering me!
Ricky Baker : We'll just tell them you were looking after me.
Hec : Doesn't matter what you tell them, they won't believe you. They'll think I made you do it. I'm not going back to jail, I'm better off up here. This is no place for a kid. You're gonna have to go back, Ricky.
Ricky Baker : To what?
Hec : To the welfare people.
Ricky Baker : No!
Hec : They'll look after you.
Ricky Baker : No, they won't!
Hec : They'll find you another home, you'll be fine.
Ricky Baker : You're not listening! Nobody listens! There's no more homes, just juvy!
Hec : What's juvy?
Ricky Baker : Juvenile prison. They don't care about kids like me, they just keep moving us around until something happens like... Amber.
Hec : Oh no, bugger then. Okay, okay. We're in about a million hectares of bush, that's big, it's big enough to hide in for a while, anyway.
Ricky Baker : Good enough for me.
Hec : But we're heading into winter. It's gonna be rough, no huts, no tents, real bush life. Can you handle that?
Ricky Baker : I can handle it.
Hec : Yeah. And if you play up, I dump you.
Ricky Baker : Okay, Uncle.
Hec : I'd still prefer if you don't call me Uncle.
Ricky Baker : Okay, Hec. So what do we do now?
Hec : We run.
[They run for a few seconds, then stop out of breathe]
Hec : Wait, wait wait. Maybe we don't need to run.
Ricky Baker : Oh yeah, let's just fast walk.
Ricky Baker : That's not very fair. Some people can't even have babies, and the ones who can, they don't even want them.
