Wish the director had left this deleted scene (last one from Bonus) in the film:
Mama, have you ever heard of the Laundry Warrior?
-What about him.
If the little baby was her enemy, then why did he save her?
-Well, I think you heard the story wrong darling. He didn’t save the baby. The baby saved him.
-Do you know what the warrior is doing now?
Chances are he is fighting someone, somewhere.
This is the story of a sad flute a laughin' baby and a weepin' sword. A long, long time ago in a land far, far away, there lived a warrior... warrior with empty eyes. He'd trained his entire life for one purpose. To be the greatest swordsman in the history of mankind. He'd just achieved his life's ambition, but his heart felt emptier than ever. These two clans had been warrin' for 500 years. And they vowed to keep on warrin' until one of them didn't have a single man left above Styx. And so now, here he was, peerin' down at this very last of his enemy. When that little warrior princess giggled, it did somethin' to him inside. But this was no time for feelin'. For when spared that baby's life, he put his name at the top of his own clan's death list. With nothin' but the clothes on his back and the baby in his arms, he decided to pay a visit to an old warrior friend in a faraway land.
The name's Eight-Ball. Like in the game. Good luck for some, bad luck for others.
So at the edge of the desert, in a busted town full of broken people, the warrior began to learn stuff he shoulda learned a long time ago. Like the joy of gettin' dirty things clean. … He also learned the joy of losing. … He learned you could be happy workin' with folks. … And findin' the simple peace in some private time after a hard day's work. … And he found that it's nice to have a few friends around when the sun goes down. But most of all, the warrior learned there's a heck of a lot more pleasure makin' things grow than there is in cuttin' 'em down.
We are called Sad Flutes because when you cut the throat, the last sound is like a sad flute.
My father was working in the field. I was helping him. A swordsman came. Killed my father. Just to test his sword.
-That musta hurt you somethin' bad.
Not hurt. Angry.
No. I was angry at my father.
-The weeping. Of all the souls I have taken.
You do not have the power.
-Well, thank you very much. I did not know that.
But you are fast. Just have to be faster. … You are slower than molasses in January.
And though I may be young, I was hopin' you could teach me a thing or two.
-Life's best lessons tend to hurt.
Sharp pain can bring sharp pleasure.
I've been waitin' my whole life for a place where it's right to be wrong.
You coulda just grabbed April and hit the trail. But you didn't. Knowing saving me would ruin every new thing you found here.
-This New World, without you... not so new.
Done a good job on this garden. Well, for a laundry man.
-You do a good shooting. For a drunken man. Why you stopped the shooting?
Well, I just went around robbing banks, hitting trains till I ran into the only force
that can truly bring down any outlaw.
Woman. When I was with her, I didn't wanna run. … But for fellas like me and you, we are what we are. If you truly love somethin' or somebody, Laundry Man ... you get as far away from 'em as possible. 'Cause we're sand. They're flowers.
I'll see you in Hell, little girl. Wear something nasty.
You have the perfect body for an assassin but the heart of a priest. Your heart will become your biggest enemy. You must kill your biggest enemy. We are assassins. All that we love, we will destroy.
The warrior walked away. And legend has it, he never stopped walkin', always making sure to keep as much distance as possible between himself and the little gal he loved.
