captivating quotations from movies, television, literature and people - curated by actual geeks.
Sydney: I’m sorry to call you. I just didn’t know who else to call. My father and I were supposed to have dinner tonight for the first time since I was a kid. I can’t even remember the last time. He just didn’t show. He said he had work. He didn’t have work.
Sydney: What I was hoping you would say is, “Sydney I gave up on us. I lost faith.” But what you came here for was closure, and there is no way you are getting that from me! I’m not gonna say I understand. I’m not gonna sympathize with you and tell you how hard it must be for you. But, you wanna know how I am? I am horrible! I am ripped apart! And not because I lost you, but because if it had been me I would have waited. I would have found the truth. I wouldn’t have given up on you!
And now I realize what an absolute waste that would have been!
Sydney: I just wanted to rip his finger right back off. Does that make me a bad person?
Vaughn: No, but it might have blown your cover.
Francie: He has a law review in an hour.
Sydney: You want to follow him.
Francie: So much, I cannot even tell you.
Danny: Sir, I love your daughter and I want to marry her. That’s why I’m calling.
Jack: First of all, Danny, the truth is this is just a courtesy call. Like when you say to your neighbor, “We’re having a loud party on Saturday night if that’s all right with you.” What you really mean is, “We’re having a loud party on Saturday night.”
Danny: Mr. Bristow –
Jack: Sydney doesn’t give a damn what my opinion is. What interests me is that you do.
Danny: It’s just a custom to call the father, that’s all this is.
Jack: Well, then, I’ll tell you what. I may become your father-in-law, that’s just fine. But I will not be used as part of a charming little anecdote you tell your friends at cocktail parties so they can see what a quaint, old-fashioned guy Danny really is. Are we clear?
Danny: Yes, sir.
Jack: Good. Then welcome to the family.
