Meet Joe Black

Quotations

Susan Parrish: Tell me you love me now.
Joe Black: I love you now. I love you always.

William Parrish: Do you know about money?
Joe Black: It can’t buy happiness?

William Parrish: It’s hard to let go isn’t it?
Joe Black: Yes it is, Bill.
William Parrish: Well, that’s life.

Joe Black: So you understand the idea. Congratulations, Bill. Now multiply that by infinity, take that to the depth of forever, and you still will barely have a glimpse of what I’m talking about.

Parrish: I want you to know how much I love you. That you’ve given a meaning to my life that I had no right to expect, and that no one can ever take from me.

Joe Black: …But Allison loves you? How do you know?
Quince: Because she knows the worst thing about me and it’s okay.

William Parrish: I loved Susan from the moment she was born, and I love her now and every minute in between. And what I dream of is a man who will discover her, and that she will discover a man who will love her, who is worthy of her, who is of this world, this time and has the grace, compassion, and fortitude to walk beside her as she makes her way through this beautiful thing called life.

William Parrish: Don’t blow smoke up my ass, you’ll ruin my autopsy.

Joe Black: Careful Bill, you’ll give yourself a heart attack and ruin my vacation.

Drew: Who would have believed it; you, an IRS agent?
Joe Black: Death and taxes.

William Parrish: When I introduce you, and I tell them who you are, I don’t think anyone will stay for dinner.

Drew: We all know this deal is as certain as death and taxes.
Joe Black: Death and taxes?
Drew: Yes.
Joe Black: Death and taxes?
Drew: Yes.
Joe Black: What an odd pairing.

William Parrish: Love is passion. Obsession. Someone you can’t live without. Someone you fall head over heels for. Find someone you can love like crazy, and will love you the same way back. Listen to your heart. No sense in life without this. To make the journey without falling deeply in love, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try, because if you haven’t tried, then you haven’t lived.

William Parrish: 65 years. Don’t they go by in a blink?
