Movie Quote of the Day – Used People, 1992 (dir. Beeban Kidron)
Pearl Berman: You want me to say that everything is my fault. I’m not gonna do it. You think I was mean to you when you were a kid? You think I didn’t do enough for you? Well, I’m sorry, but I had a couple of other things on my mind, you know? Like a Depression, a war, and your father – God bless him – sleepwalking through your whole childhood. God forbid I should know myself the way you know yourself, that I should ask myself those questions. Like what happened to my life? Did I deserve more? Did I ever for one second get as much as I gave? God forbid I should ask those questions, because if I looked inside myself and I really saw what I shut out my whole life, what I really missed, there’d come from out of me such a rage it would blow this building apart, and it would blow you into a million little pieces and it would blow Queens off of the face of the goddamned map!
