Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) Poster

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 : Trees. Birds. Rivers. Sky. / Running with my Uncle Hec / Living forever.

  • Ricky Baker : I'll never stop running!

    Paula : Yeah, and I'll never stop chasing you - I'm relentless, I'm like the Terminator.

    Ricky Baker : I'm more like the Terminator than you!

    Paula : I said it first, you're more like Sarah Connor, and in the first movie too, before she could do chinups.

  • Ricky Baker : I didn't choose the skuxx life, the skuxx life chose me.

  • Hec : Pretty majestical, aye?

    Ricky Baker : I don't think that's a word.

    Hec : Majestical? Sure it is.

    Ricky Baker : Nah, it's not real.

    Hec : What would you know?

    Ricky Baker : It's majestic.

    Hec : That doesn't sound very special, majestical's way better.

  • Hec : Sam, what's the fastest way out of here?

    Psycho Sam : Jetpack.

    Ricky Baker : [excited]  Do you actually have a jetpack?

  • Ricky Baker : It was a relaxing song... and a relaxing sausage.

  • [Last lines] 

    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 : Uncle, you're basically a criminal now. But on the bright side, you're famous.

  • 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 : I ran out of toilet paper, give me some of yours.

    Hec : Eh?

    Ricky Baker : I've gotta poop. I need to poop, you need to poop, we all poop.

    Hec : Use a leaf.

    Ricky Baker : A leaf? Ugh! I hate you.

    [Ricky walks away] 

    Hec : And bury it!

    Ricky Baker : I'll bury you.

  • 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.

  • Hec : I've been to prison.

    Ricky Baker : Gangster! For what?

    Hec : Manslaughter.

    Ricky Baker : Double gangster! You need a teardrop tattoo!

  • Ricky Baker : Why do you reckon he calls himself "Psycho Sam?"

    [Psycho Sam puts kitchen pots on Ricky and Hec's head] 

    Joe : Here you go. Put these on, to stop the government from tracking you.

    Ricky Baker : Never mind.

  • Ricky Baker : Shit just got real

    Hec : Yeah shit just got real

  • [last lines] 

    Ricky Baker : We didn't choose the skux life.

    [last lines] 

    Hec : The skux life chose us.

  • Bella : [after Ricky gets a dog]  What are you gonna call him?

    Ricky Baker : I'm still thinking. Something fierce to reflect its true nature. Either Psycho, Megatron or Tupac.

    Bella : What's a Tupac?
