The cult classic contains several quotable lines, most of them spoken by the late Dennis Hopper, who plays the villain Frank Booth. Among them: You stay alive, baby. Do it for Van Gogh, and Ill fuck anything that moves! Theres also the chilling threat, You know what a love letter is? Its a bullet from a fucking gun, fucker! But no Blue Velvet quote is as popular as Franks response to Jeffreys favorite brand of beer. Frank asks, What kind of beer do you like? Jeffrey utters the unfortunate word Heineken. To which Frank bellows, Heineken? Fuck that shit! Pabst! Blue! Ribbon!
