quote by Callie Khouri

I don't think any studio - it was a long shot at the time - but I don't think any studio in a million years would make 'Thelma and Louise' right now. But there's so many other kinds of movies they won't make right now.

— Callie Khouri

Famous Thelma And Louise quotations

When people know I wrote 'Thelma and Louise,' they don't want to mess with me.


My favorite duo since Thelma and Louise. They got chops, heart, and soul stirring harmonies.

I'm taking my rats. Those are my friends for the tour. Thelma and Louise. They're so cute.

Something's like crossed over in me and I can't go back. I couldn't live.

It's sad that women characters have lost so much ground in popular movies.

I would love to star in a remake of Thelma and Louise.

I'm obsessed with 'Thelma and Louise,' and therefore obsessed with Callie Khouri who wrote that movie.

Travel is best when it's as unplanned as possible so that you get that real sense of adventure. The film 'Thelma and Louise' really encapsulates that - their travels are unplanned and spontaneous and therefore full of excitement, escapism and optimism.

I meet Susan [Saradon], and she was amazing.

We sit down to go through the script [Thelma & Louise]. I swear, I think it was page one - she says, "So my first line, I don't think we need that line. Or we could put it on page two. Cut this ..." And I was just like ... My jaw was to the ground.


When I got the script for Thelma & Louise, when I met with the director, Ridley Scott, I said, "I don't want to do a revenge film. I'm not interested in doing that moment in the script after they shoot the truck, where it says they jump up and down and they're real happy about it".

On their own, each [character] is a victim of no importance.

But when you bring them together, they become a dangerous weapon. Jeanne is the vowel and Sophie the consonant. Psychologists know this phenomenon well. Each individual is harmless, but together they create an explosive chemical reaction. It's like Bonnie and Clyde, like Thelma and Louise.
