Hounddog Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Hounddog script is here for all you fans of the Dakota Fanning movie. This puppy is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of the movie to get the dialogue. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and all that jazz, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. At least you'll have some Hounddog quotes (or even a monologue or two) to annoy your coworkers with in the meantime, right?

And swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards -- because reading is good for your noodle. Better than Farmville, anyway.

Hounddog Script

We must be careful with the snakes...


Follow me.

Had you said.

Let me see.

The first reason is because I do

of our youth today.

And the reason I believe this is because
know what you feel when you sing.

I know what you feel when listening,

I cursed the thoughts and wishes that
seize when you are raptured by the pace.

And yes, as a young, know what I
dislike this song so much...

But tell them a thing,
is the rhythm, the rhythm.

It is the pace.

There are many lovers of
music here in the church

but devote all their music
the weeks Mr.

but has nothing of joyful
this song rock n roll, because...

Thank you very much,

But he wanted me, mother.
It was to me that he loved.

So what did he sleep

Why was he who loved me.

He never loved you.

You also want.

Why not?

Come here. Secure it as
I will give way to disk.

What is this?

It is a very ugly wound.

You better treat her.


My mother always told me

never to walk in high grass.

Keep it cool, boy.




I remember those nights.

When expanded to the neck of your mother.

She was so great, quiet and loving.

Embraced this way,

with a fireplace, you to Lucy and Willie Mays

And when brincávamos.

It was so beautiful, I felt so
safe in the arms of your mother.

And when my mother had
you took the field,

entered the kitchen, you in metia
bed without waking your mother.

Your mother was good.

I miss her.

I miss her.

Why not the Lewellen waves?

- I can...
- You should.

Just think, I am afraid.

Look in the mirror.

Sometimes I can not breathe,
suffocated when I'm here.

Maybe you find a way to embrace
in a way that your mother never did.

- Mothers.
- Mothers.


Why not say nothing?

Why can not I talk?



is that my baby improves

- No.

You hear? Not provide.


- Think you dance too?
- I like Elvis.

Do not drink anything.

I smoke a cigarette.

I think she will die.

What do you say?

- And if she tell?
- It will not.

And you begin to speak during sleep?
You can do this...

Stop worry about.

- She could die and it is our fault...
- It is not my fault if she dies.

- Did you meteste the inside.
- No more.


What is supposed meter? A man is
supposed to come inside a woman.



You have a dark spirit in you.

A spirit that tries to wake you.

Want to sleep a little more.

Hide it.

We kid.

Go inside.

Vai is well.

I already have with you.

I want to come and sing with me.

I do not feel well.

I know, girl.

I know.

I want to go home.

Between and only sing a song
me first.

Leave me alone.

- I...
- Really, I do not want.

What you do with that empty?

What I loved was violated
and stolen from you. You have a vacuum there.

- What will you do with it?
- Shut up.

You have to feel this empty.

You have to feel when
become ill.

Are bad and eat you alive.


You're just a nigger, you know?

Only one black.

- You too, girl.
- No, I do not...

- You too.
- No, I do not...

Yes, you.

You made them believe that you were not.

It is the way that people you
deal that makes you a nigger.

The way people look at you

insult you and you spit.

People try to make
with the hate.

Apart from the things you love most.

You gonna let you do that?

I am not saying that life is not as hard
but do not let you win.

- Leave me alone.
- Do not you leave...

I hate you...

I hate you...

- Leave me alone.
- Do not you leave...

- You steal the soul.
- Leave me alone, I hate you.

Leave me alone.

Get up. Get up.

I can not dance anymore.

You got to dance.

If you stay quiet,
can engage more in the sound.

I can not sing.

Is hidden in an obscure place.

It is quiet and good looking background.

Stay quiet.

It is very, very quiet.

So you go.

The mixture is crazy powerful.

If you do the right, when you die...

and amounts to free spirit.

The ghosts do not try to catch.

But if you do not,

the spirits lead you to madness.

Always have a way to do it.

For you to shake.

Look at you.

I will you.

What you got?

You know, I have been thinking.

I have a large rear yard,
the new house to where I moved.

It would be great for a puppy.

But that would have come too.

Why can not I take
of him alone.

And you can do it.

And he needs you.

Simply could not breathe,

I could not breathe.

I was scared, you know?

I feel I can breathe now.

I have prepared for you a quarter.

- It turns-discs?
- Yes, you.

Come in, come on.

I gotta see.

Could not say no.

I'll wait here.

I'll wait here for you.

Got it.


Yes, madam.

I love you.

Yes, madam.

Special thanks to SergeiK.
