Movie Quote of the Day – The Girl In The Book, 2015 (dir. Marya Cohn)


Alice: It’s nice to know somebody who actually likes what they do. I always wanted to be a writer when I grew up.
Emmett: Are you?
Alice: Grown up?
Emmett: Nooo. Writing?
Alice: No.
Emmett: How come?
Alice: I sit there waiting to hear the characters speak, and instead I have this voice in my head saying, “This is shit. This is shit. This is shit.”
Emmett: Come on! That voice? Everybody hears that voice. That’s the same voice that says, “I can’t believe you just said that, you fucking moron!” Everybody hears that voice.
Alice: You think?
Emmett: Yeah! Most people just ignore it.
Alice: Really? I just. . .succumb.
Emmett: I like a girl who knows how to succumb.
Alice: Really?
Emmett: Really.
