“The exploitation films were made in such an artless way with these big wide shots of Sunset Boulevard or of Arcadia or downtown L.A. or wherever. In mainstream films, especially in the 1980s, the Los Angeles you saw wasn’t the real one; it was a character with this back-lot sort of atmosphere. They tried to luxuriate it. In exploitation films, you see what the place really looked like, you see the bars and mom-and-pop restaurants.”—Quentin Tarantino (via heavilyblunted)

Guy 1:She had to go, man. Had. to. go.
Guy 2:Yeah, it was time.
Guy 1:And she's mad at me about it. Like, coming to me trying to talk to me about it because she's upset or some shit, and I'm like, "Nah, this is done. We're done."
Guy 2:Sometimes you gotta do that. Be firm.
Guy 1:It's like, I have six Pokeballs, ya know what I mean? I got six Pokeballs and there's 150 Pokemon out there. I'm not gonna hang on to my PIDGEY, ya know what I'm sayin? I'm not gonna hang on to my Ratata.
Guy 1:She's on some Professor Oak shit. I'm tryin to be the best.
Guy 2:Even Pikachu had to go eventually, n*gga. You did the right thing.
