God damn, confound, blast and fuck the upper classes - Carrington

I always wanted to be an orphan. I could have, if it wasn't for my parents. - Prick Up Your Ears

Have a wank? Have a wank? I can't just have a wank. I need three days' notice to have a wank. You can just stand there and do it. Me, it's like organizing D-Day. Forces have to be assembled, magazines bought, the past dredged for some suitably unsavoury episode, the dog-eared thought of which can still produce a faint flicker of desire! Have a wank, it'd be easier to raise the Titanic. -Prick Up Your Ears

Find me that piece of paper I had in my hand yesterday morning - Meryl Streep in 'The Devil Wears Prada'

This... 'stuff'? Oh... ok. I see, you think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select out, oh I don't know, that lumpy blue sweater, for instance, because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise, it's not lapis, it's actually cerulean. You're also blindly unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar De La Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves St Laurent, wasn't it, who showed cerulean military jackets? And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of 8 different designers. Then it filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic casual corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and so it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room. From a pile of stuff. -Meryl Streep from 'The Devil Wears Prada'

Loneliness has followed me my whole life. Everywhere. In bars, in cars, sidewalks, stores, everywhere. There's no escape. I'm God's lonely man.
-Taxi Driver

"The earth is my body, my head is in the stars".
-Harold and Maude

I felt more alone that week than any. Sometimes I'd feel a body lying next to me like an amputee feels a phantom limb. All I did was think about Jennie Gerhardt and Alice Quinn and all the decades of people I had known. The more I thought, the more I felt like crying. Life seemed so sweet and so sad, and so hard to let go of in the end. But hey, man, every day is a brand new deal, right? Just keep on working and something's bound to turn up.
-American Splendor

The most beautiful words in the English language are not "I love you," but "it's benign."
- Deconstructing Harry

Ben Affleck: In case you were picking pimples when they covered this in rehab, alcholism is a disease.
Johnny Galecki: Yeah, yeah - You catch it from open bottles,
- *Bounce*

John Lithgow (to cashier): You're a very rude young woman. I know Douglas from the Rotary and I can't believe he'd want you treating customers so badly.
Cashier: I don't think I was treating her badly.
John Lithgow: Then you must be from New York.
- *Terms of Endearment*

I was married. My husband cheated on me left and right.
He made me feel like I was crazy all the time. One day
he tells me it's MY fault he saw other women. So I picked
up a knife and told him it was HIS fault I was stabbing him.
- *Living Out Loud*

A heart can be broken,
but it keeps beating just the same.
-*Fried Green Tomatoes.*

You are too twisted for color t.v.
-*Steel Magnolias*

You Need a LOT of drinks...
To Break the Ice? -
To Kill the bug you have up your ass-
-conversation between Jack Nicholson and Shirley MacLaine from *Terms of Endearment.*

My husband and I fell in love at first sight. Maybe I should have taken a second look.
* Crimes and Misdemeanors *

Old paint on canvas, as it ages, sometimes becomes transparent. When that happens it is possible, in some pictures, to see the original lines: a tree will show through a woman's dress, a child makes way for a dog, a large boat is no longer on open sea. That is called pentimento because the painter "repented," changed his mind. Perhaps it would be as well to say that the old conception, replaced by a later choice, is a way of seeing and then seeing again.
Jane Fonda in * Julia *....(From Pentimento by Lillian Hellman)

What IS the point my dear madam?
Stop calling me your dear madam. I'm not married, I'm not French and you haven't the slightest affection for me....
Katherine Hepburn from * The Corn is Green *

You get what you settle for.....
* Thelma & Louise *

I was just thinking, there must be something wrong with me because I've never had a relationship with a woman that's lasted longer than the one between Hitler and Eva Braun.
* Manhattan *

Any news on the boyfriend front?
I was kind of seeing someone: an author.
And what happened?
He committed suicide.
Oh I'm so sorry.
It's alright. I didn't really like him very much. I liked him even less after he committed suicide.
How did he do it?
He threw himself off a building. He didn't even do that properly. It was only a 3 story building. He would have survived only a car ran him over.
What sort of books did he write?
Self-help books...
* Scene Between Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branagh...Peter's Friends *

Sonja: To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love, but then one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer, to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love, to be happy then is to suffer but suffering makes one unhappy, therefore to be unhappy one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you're getting this down...
* Love and Death *

All men are mortal. Socrates was mortal. Therefore, all men are Socrates. Which means that all men are homosexuals..
* Love and Death *

If Jesus Christ came back today and saw what was being done in his name, he'd never stop throwing up....
* Hannah and Her Sisters *

"A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver, with some fava beans and a nice chianti...."
* Silence of the Lambs *

One day when my mother and father were singing together in the forest, a great storm blew up out of nowhere. But so passionate was their singing that they did not notice, nor did they stop as the rain began to fall, and when their voices rose for the final bars of the duet, a great bolt of lighting came out of the sky and struck my father so that he lit up like a torch. And at the same moment my father was struck dead my mother was struck dumb! She never spoke another word....
* The Piano *

Beatrice: Against my will, I am sent to bid you come into dinner.
Benedick: Fair Beatrice, thank you for your pains.
Beatrice: I took no more pains for those thanks than you take pains to thank me. If it had been painful, I would not have come.
Benedick: You take pleasure then in the message?
Beatrice: Yea, just so much as you may take upon a knife's point. You have no stomach, signior? Fare you well.
Benedick: Ha! "Against my will I am sent to bid you come into dinner." There's a double meaning in that...
* Much Ado About Nothing *

I'd rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special....
* Steel Magnolias *

I'd agree with you if you were right....
* Awakenings *

That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.....
* Steel Magnolias *

" If you didn't kill him, then who did, sir?"
"Who can say. Best thing for him, really. His therapy was going nowhere"......
* Silence of the Lambs *

You know what you look like to me, with your good bag and your cheap shoes? You look like a rube. A well scrubbed, hustling rube with a little taste. Good nutrition has given you some length of bone, but you're not more than one generation from poor white trash, are you, Agent Starling? And that accent you've tried so desparately to shed? Pure West Virginia. What's your father, dear? Is he a coal miner? Does he stink of the lamb? You know how quickly the boys found you... all those tedious sticky fumblings in the back seats of cars...while you could only dream of getting out... getting anywhere... getting all the way to the FBI.......
* Silence of the Lambs *

I haven't got a brain...only straw.
How can you talk if you haven't got a brain?
I don't know...But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking...don't they?
Yes, I guess you're right.....
* Wizard of Oz *

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain....
* Wizard of Oz *

Hearts will never be practical until they are made unbreakable .......
* Wizard of Oz *

I got scruples too, you know. You know what that is? Scruples?
No, I don't know what it is, but if you got 'em, it's a sure bet they belong to somebody else!.....
* Paper Moon *

Greetings, my friends. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember, my friends, future events such as these will affect you in the future.....
* Plan 9 from Outer Space *

I always just hoped that, that I'd meet some nice friendly girl, like the look of her, hope the look of me didn't make her physically sick, then pop the question and, um, settle down and be happy. It worked for my parents. Well, apart from the divorce and all that......
* Four Weddings and a Funeral *

I tend to be impulsive in these matters like the time I asked Virginia Wolf to marry me.
She turned you down?
No, she accepted. It was ghastly.....
* Carrington *

I've just come from the hospital; your victim has died. You try to frighten me. Admit so, sir. This is some new form of torture. Say it, Brother Sir. It'll be your own torture. I hope to God it'll torture you to madness......
* A Clockwork Orange *

Well, well, well! Well if it isn't fat stinking billy goat Billy Boy in poison! How art thou, thou globby bottle of cheap stinking chip oil? Come and get one in the yarbles, if ya have any yarbles, ya eunuch jelly thou!.....
* A Clockwork Orange *

The dingo's got my baby!.....
* A Cry in the Dark *

...I'll just sit here and be quiet, just in case they do suspect me. They're probably watching me. Well, let them. Let them see what kind of a person I am. I'm not even going to swat that fly. I hope they are watching. They'll see. They'll see and they'll know and they'll say, 'Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly....
* Psycho *
