More Movie Taglines:
  • A repo man is always intense... but only a fool gets killed for a car.
  • ...It's 4 A.M., do you know where your car is?
  • Meet Otto. He's a clean-cut kid in a dirty business. He's a Repo Man. He steals cars legally. Now, he's out to repossess a '64 Chevy Malibu...with an amazing reward of $20,000. But Otto is not alone. There are others who want the car and will do anything to get it. The risks are great, because hidden in the trunk is something so incredible it could destroy them all. We'll give you a hint... it glows in the dark.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Lite: Put your seatbelt on, boy. I don't ride with anybody 'less they wear their seatbelt. It's one of my rules.
  • Bud: Tense situations, kid. You get into five or six of 'em a day, it don't mean shit anymore. I mean, I've seen men stabbed, didn't mean shit to me. I've seen guns, guns too, they don't mean shit. But that's when you gotta watch yourself.
  • Bud: Okay. Have a nice day, Uh, night. [to himself] Bud: Night, day, doesn't mean shit.
  • Bud: Goddamn-dipshit-Rodriguez-gypsy-dildo-punks. I'll get your ass.
  • Duke: The lights are growing dim Otto. I know a life of crime has led me to this sorry fate, and yet, I blame society. Society made me what I am. Otto: That's bullshit. You're a white suburban punk just like me. Duke: Yeah, but it still hurts.
Movie Trivia:
  • All the repo men (except Otto) are named after beers.
  • All cars (plus the police motorcycle) have pine tree air fresheners.
  • The Repo Man's code is based on an amalgamation of wisdom given to director Alex Cox when he was serving in real life as a repo man.
  • Allusions to William S. Burroughs'novel "Naked Lunch": "Paging Dr Benway" in the hospital and mentioning Bill Lee.
  • Otto's co-worker (Kevin) at the supermarket sings the jingle for 7-Up just before Mr. Humphries fires them. Later at Mr. Humphries' house, Kevin can be seen in the background, adjusting a TV set that's playing a 7-Up commercial.
