The Cutting Edge


Kate: Toe pick!

Doug: Well, actually it’s kind of interesting. I’ve been, I’ve been doing a little figure skating.
Old man in back of bar: Finger painting?

Kate: What, do you shower once a week?
Doug: Is that an invitation?

Anton: Man and woman together make flower. Douglas, you are stem. Katya, you are petal. Together, we make flower.

Kate: I swear, you let me down and it’ll take them a month to count the blade marks on your back.

Kate: I’m sure I don’t do anything you would find exciting. I don’t open beer bottles with my toes, I don’t sit around and count what’s left of my teeth, hey, I don’t even enjoy a good tractor pull.
Doug: Life of the party, huh? Place must be crawling with guys.
Kate: As a matter of fact, I do have a boyfriend.
Doug: Well there’s a rough gig. What do you do, keep him chained up in the basement?
Kate: Hale at the moment is working in my father’s London office, he’s an MBA – Harvard. You may have heard of it. They do have a hockey team.
Doug: He must be very smart. I bet you look pretty good from a few thousand miles away.

Kate: Just who the hell do you think you are?
Doug: I know exactly who I am, sweetheart, I’m a guy who came a long way for lunch.
Kate: Oh, well, please don’t let me keep you from the trough.

Kate: Excuse me. Naked male insecurity really leaves me cold.

Hale: I don’t like to see her upset.
Doug: If I was you, I’d invest in blindfolds.

Kate: You are an immature asshole of the lowest order.
Doug: If it was forty below and that button meant the difference between a long satisfying life and a cold horrible death from hypothermia, I still wouldn’t give you the satisfaction! Skate!

Kate: If you’re so bored, why don’t you read?
Doug: You mean like a book?
Kate: That is the generally accepted format, yes.
Kate: What was the last book you read? You were in college?
Doug: The last thing I read in college was a letter canceling my scholarship when I couldn’t play anymore.
Kate: Okay, high school.
Doug: I was a hockey player. The only thing I had to read was a scoreboard.
Kate: And they graduated you?
Doug: They revered me. I was a God.
Kate: What a tragic commentary on our times.

Jack Moseley: What about Spindler?
Anton: Spindler? Spindler say before he skate with her, he wear garlic from neck and sleep with cross. Who is left? I am at bottom of barrel.
Jack Moseley: Then you find another barrel.

Doug: Hey, there’s only two things I do well, sweetheart, and skating’s the other one.

Kate Mosley: I love you.
Doug Dorsey: Just remember who said it first.

Doug Dorsey: I’ve been meaning to tell you, that book you gave me? It’s pretty good.
Kate Mosley: Really. Using it as a doorstop, or a coaster?
