"Well she moved down here, age of eighteen,
She blew the boys away, was more than they'd seen
I was introduced and we both started grooving.
She said, I dig you baby but I've got to keep moving
on, keep moving on."
Tom Petty, "Mary Jane's Last Dance"

"Going down that long lonesome highway
Bound for the mountains and the plains.
Sure ain't nothing here gonna tie me
And I got some friends I'd like to see.

Vincent: What do you mean, walk the Earth?
Jules: You know, like Caine in Kung Fu. Just walk from town to town, meet people, get in adventures.
Vincent: How long do you intend to walk the earth?
Jules: Until God puts me where he want me to be.
Vincent: What if he never does?
Jules: If it takes forever, I’ll wait forever.
Vincent: So you decided to be a bum?
Jules: I’ll just be Jules, Vincent — no more, no less.
Vincent: No Jules, you’re gonna be like those pieces of shit out there who beg for change. They walk around like a bunch of fuckin’ zombies, they sleep in garbage bins, they eat what I throw away, and dogs piss on ’em. They got a word for ’em, they’re called bums. And without a job, residence, or legal tender, that’s what you’re gonna be – a fuckin’ bum!
