David Aames[edit]

  • Isn’t that what being young is about, believing secretly that you would be the one person in the history of man that would live forever?
  • My dreams are a cruel joke. They taunt me. Even in my dreams, I'm an idiot who knows he's about to wake up to reality. If I could only avoid sleep. But I can't. I try to tell myself what to dream. I try to dream that I am flying. Something free. It never works...
  • That smile's gonna be the end of me.
  • One kiss
  • The little things... there's nothing bigger, is there?
  • Good. Because for a minute there I thought we were talking about A FUCKING MASK!!
  • I lost you when I got in that car. I'm sorry.
  • I remember. Somebody died. It was me.
  • Look at us. I'm frozen, and you're dead. And I love you.
  • Doc, once you've been driven off a bridge at 80 miles an hour, somehow you don't invite happiness in without a full body search.
  • These? These are more than headaches. These are steel plates slicing through my every thought.
  • I wanna wake up! Tech support! It's a nightmare! Tech support! Tech support!
  • I want to live a real life... I don't want to dream any longer.
  • You're not blind. You're drinking Jack Daniels, and when you drink Jack, you start in with that... Frank Sinatra, she shot me down, give me a cigarette, "King of Sad" thing.
  • A new form of me began to take shape. I planned my reemergence, like the Normandy invasion. (Sofia, Sofia...) I'll just say it - I did my homework. I read every memo. Thomas Tipp was right: People will read again.
  • You keep the relationship casual, until the absolute breaking point. And then one evening or afternoon or morning, it could be months from now. Well, you know how it works
  • I don't care if God calls, I'm very, very busy.
  • I am a pleasure delayer.

Sofía Serrano[edit]

  • I'll tell you in another life when we are both cats.
  • I think she's the saddest girl to ever hold a martini.
  • Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.
  • But I just think good things will happen, if you are a good person with a good attitude, don't you think?
  • Holy God. This is going to change my life in a zillion different ways. I must be nuts.
  • I meant that to be your forehead.
  • Come here... I want to tell you a secret.
  • I'll find you again.

Brian Shelby[edit]

  • You can do whatever you want with your life, but one day you'll know what love truly is. It's the sour and the sweet. And I know sour, which allows me to appreciate the sweet.
  • You will never know the exquisite pain of the guy who goes home alone.
  • My own death was in front of me, and you know what happened? Your life flashed before my eyes.
  • Because I am Frank, and Frank must go. I good you bid evening.

Julie Gianni[edit]

  • Don't you know that when you sleep with someone, your body makes a promise whether you do or not!
  • What's happiness to you, David?
  • We had sex four times. Four times! I swallowed your cum, it means something!
  • Happiness to me, is being here with you!

Rebecca Dearborn[edit]

  • Its been a brilliant journey of self-awakening, now you simply have to ask yourself this... What is happiness to you David?
  • Most of us live our whole lives without having an adventure to call our own. What is any life without the pursuit of a dream?


[David is knocked fiercely over the head with frying pan. He wakes up later. He is puzzled by the presence of Julie.]
David: Who are you?
Julie: I'm Sofia.
David: You are not Sofia.
Julie: I'm Sofia.
David: Whatever.

David:: I wasn't hitting on Sofia.
Brian:: Oh, fine. Whatever you say. I'm crazy. I'm blind.
David:: You're not blind, you're drinking Jack Daniels, and when you drink Jack you start in with that, "Frank Sinatra, she shot me down, give me a cigarette, King of Sad" thing.
Brian:: That I do. Give me a cigarette.
David:: I'll find one.
Brian:: But wait. You're rich and women love you, and I'm from Ohio and I'm drunk. Can I tell you the truth?
David:: Everybody does.
Brian:: I dig her. And I've never said this to you before about any girl, but she could be - could be, could be, could be - the girl of my fucking dreams.
David:: You're not from Ohio.
Brian:: I know. But if she fucks up our friendship, she can go to hell. I won't allow it. We are bros.
David:: I feel the same way.
Brian:: Sure you do.

David: How 'bout if you help me, unless I'm horning in here.
Sofia: You are, but the food's good.
David: See, I've got this little problem. I've got a stalker.
Sofia: It doesn't sound life-threatening.
David: But I need a cover. I need for you to pretend we're having a scintillating conversation, and you are wildly entertained. I know it's tough.
Sofia: I'll improvise.
David: She's across the room and burning a hole in my back now, isn't she?
Sofia: Red dress, strappy shoes? Wow. She's really staring at you.
David: Shit.
Sofia: And she seems to be growing.. less happy. I think she's the saddest girl to ever hold a martini.

David:: Look at us. I'm frozen and you are dead. And I love you.
Sofia:: It's a problem.
David:: I lost you when I got in that car. I'm sorry. Do you remember what you told me once? "Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around"...
Sofia:: I'll find you again.
David:: I'll see you in another life... when we are both cats.
