Quotations

Epstein: Why do you think I’m a homosexual?
Eugene: I don’t know.
Eugene: Maybe it’s because you never once talked about a girl.
Epstein: I never talk about dogs either. Does that make me a cocker spaniel?

Toomey: You would need three promotions to be an asshole.

Daisy: Eugene. You didn’t say one wrong thing in that whole conversation.

Epstein: You have to take sides. You have to fight the good fight.
Jerome: What fight?!
Epstein: Any fight. Until you do, you’ll never be a writer Jerome.
