More from Say Anything...

Lloyd: Maybe I didn’t really know you. Maybe you were just a mirage. Maybe the world is full of food and sex and spectacle and we’re all just hurling towards an acropolis, in which case it’s not your fault. I’m been thinking about all these things and….you’re probably standing there monitoring. And one more thing — about the letter. Nuke it, flame it, destroy it — it hurts me to know it’s out there. Later.

Corey: Did you see what Mr. Carroll wrote in my yearbook? Well he ridiculed me all year and he writes “you’re a real live wire.” Love Mr. Carroll.

Diane: So what’s your job this summer?
Lloyd: Being a great date.
Diane: No, I’m serious.
Lloyd: So am I. I wanna see you again; I wanna see you as much as I can before you leave. There I said it.

Lloyd: Just knowing that a version like that exists, knowing that just for a minute she felt that and wrote I can’t help loving you. That has to be worth something.

Lloyd: I’m gonna take Diane Court out again.
Corey: Well that’s unlikely.
Lloyd: Is the movies a good second date, you know? As a date?
Corey: Well you never had a first date.
Lloyd: Yes we did. I sat across from her at a mall. We ate together. We ate. That’s eating. Sharing an important physical event.
Corey: That’s not even a scam.
Lloyd: What’s a scam?
Corey: Going out as friends.
DC: No its not. Scam is lusting.
Lloyd & Corey: Then what’s a date?
DC: Date is a prearrangement. With a possibility for love.
Corey: Then what’s love?
