Claudia: Nobody means what they say on Thanksgiving, Mom. You know that. That’s what the day’s supposed to be all about, right? Torture.
Adele: That and giving thanks that we don’t have to go through this for another year. Except we do, because those bastards went and put Christmas right in the middle, just to punish us.
Finn: Oh, look at that!
Anna: I never liked full moons. They give people an excuse to do foolish things.
Finn: Well, I’m young. I’m supposed to do foolish things.
Anna: And spend the rest of your life paying for them?
Finn: Well, it’s better than spending the rest of my life wondering what I missed.
Anna: I’d rather wonder than kick myself.
Finn: I’d rather kick myself.
Anna: Fine. You will end up with a deeply sore backside.
The Writer: Don’t you believe I love you?
The Marquise: No. I do know that at times I arouse desire in you, but desire is not love. Even if you express it with something resembling passion. I’ve had too much experience of the world to be fooled. Innumerable women have the same effect on you that I do.
Movie Quote of the Day – The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain, 1995 (dir. Christopher Monger)
Odell: Hey Easy, find a job yet?
Easy Rawlins: I ain’t studyin’ no job, Odell.
Odell: Ain’t studyin’ no job? How you gonna live?
Easy Rawlins: I got a little money saved up. I’ll invest in real estate. Maybe go into business for myself.
Odell: What kind of business?
Easy Rawlins: A little private investigating.
Odell: You get in trouble doing that.
Easy Rawlins: Well, like a man told me once: “Step out your door, you’re already in trouble. Just a matter if you’re mixed up at the top or not, that’s all.”
