"Dallas Buyers Club" movie quotes tell the true story of one man who sought to bring better HIV drugs to himself and others in the 1980s. The biographical drama film was directed by Jean-Marc Vallee using a screenplay by Craig Borten and Rachel Rothman. The film, which was based on the true story of Ron Woodroof, wowed at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival before it's limited theatrical release on November 1, 2013.

In "Dallas Buyers Club," electrician and rodeo cowboy Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) is diagnosed with HIV, which in 1985 was relatively unknown. He's given AZT, the only approved drug at the time, and a short time to live. The drugs nearly kill Ron, who then seeks out alternative treatments, much to the ire of his physician, Dr. Eve Saks (Jennifer Garner).

Ron discovers a multitude of treatments available in other countries, though unapproved in the United States, and begins not only smuggling them into the states for his own use but distributing them to other HIV patients. Along with fellow patient Rayon (Jared Leto), the two form the Dallas Buyers Club which creates a network of smugglers, sellers and buyers for these drugs. Though the FDA Customs Agents are hot on his trail, Ron continues his fight to bring these viable treatments to those who need them the most.

"Dallas Buyers Club" is sure to get some consideration come awards season but will have competition with other films in theaters at the same time such as "Inside Llewyn Davis," "Out of the Furnace," "The Last Days on Mars," "12 Years a Slave," "Frozen," "Oldboy," "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Delivery Man," "Nebraska," "Sunlight Jr.," "Last Vegas," "Ender's Game, "The Counselor," "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "Don Jon," "Rush, and "Prisoners,".

    Tested Positive for HIV

    Dr. Sevard: "Mr Woodroof, you've tested positive for HIV. Have you ever used intravenous drugs? Have you ever engaged in homosexual conduct?"
    Ron Woodroof: "Homo? Homo? You saying homo? You've made a mistake."
    Dr. Sevard: "Mr Woodroof, we estimate you have 30 days left."
    Ron Woodroof: "Got a news flash for y'all. There ain't nothing out there that can kill Ron Woodroof in 30 days."

    When Ron first learns of his HIV diagnosis, he is astounded, both by the fact that these doctors are asking if he is a homosexual, then later when they give him only 30 days to live. He doesn't accept either suggestions.

    Good Meds Out of Mexico

    Ron Woodroof: "They've got good meds out of Mexico that's better than what you can get here in the states."

    Ron seeks to be included in a study operated by Dr. Eve Saks for HIV patients but it's more complicated than a simple ask. With no luck there, he finds his own solution, medicines available in other countries.

    Players On the Dallas Cowboys

    FDA Customs Agent: "Walker, Dorsett, Blunt, Newsome, Jeffcoat, these are patients?"
    Ron Woodroof: "Yes, sir"
    FDA Customs Agent: "They're also names of the players on the Dallas Cowboys."
    Ron Woodroof: "You know, that's a hell of a coincidence."
    FDA Customs Agent: "That's a little ridiculous."
    Ron Woodroof: "Well you said it."
    FDA Customs Agent: "Can you prove these are patients?"
    Ron Woodroof: "Can you prove they are not?"

    When Ron is stopped at the border with a load of drugs, the FDA Customs Agents question the patient names on his bottles as interestingly enough they match names on the current Dallas Cowboys roster. Ron urges them to prove that they are not patients.
