Movie Quote of the Day – Indecent Proposal, 1993 (dir. Adrian Lyne)

John: Dance?
Diana: I should go.
John: I remember once when I was young, and I was coming back from some place, a movie or something. I was on the subway and there was a girl sitting across from me and she was wearing this dress that was buttoned clear up right to here. She was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. And I was shy then, so when she would look at me, I would look away. Then, afterwards, when I would look back, she would look away. Then I got to where I was gonna get off, and got off, the doors closed, and as the train was pulling away she looked right at me and gave me the most incredible smile. It was awful, I wanted to tear the doors open. And I went back every night, same time, for two weeks, but she never showed up. That was 30 years ago and I don’t think that there’s a day that goes by that I don’t think about her. I don’t want that to happen again. Just one dance?

Doreen Piggot: Honey, yesterday I hit a kid.
Honey Bush: What?
Doreen Piggot: I hit an eight-year-old kid. He wasn’t hurt. I just kind of brushed him, knocked him down. But it was so close. He’s such a little sweetie too. I tried to give him a lift to his house. He told me his mom and dad told him never to get into the car with anybody unless they said it was okay.
Honey Bush: You’re very lucky, you know that?
Doreen Piggot: If I’d been going faster, I would’ve killed him. Imagine. How could you get over that? You couldn’t. I came home. I told Earl our whole life could change. Earl tells me to go on a diet. That’s all he could think of to say.

Glenn Gould: I don’t know what the effective ratio would be but I’ve always had a sort of intuition that for every hour you spend with other human beings, you need X number of hours alone. Now what that X represents, I don’t really know, whether it be 2 and 7/8ths or 7 and 2/8ths, but it’s a substantial ratio.

Ada: At night! I think of my piano in its ocean grave, and sometimes of myself floating above it. Down there everything is so still and silent that it lulls me to sleep. It is a weird lullaby and so it is; it is mine.
