The Architect: You played a very dangerous game.
The Oracle: Change always is.

You know, I didn't just heed what I was taught, men and women should be together, it's the natural way, that kind of thing. I'm not with you because of what family, society, life tried to instill in me from day one. The way the world is, how seldom it is that you meet that one person who just gets you ... it's so rare. My parents didn't really have it. There were no examples set for me in the world of male-female relationships. And to cut oneself off from finding that person, to immediately halve your options by eliminating the possibility of finding that one person within your own gender, that just seemed stupid to me. So I didn't. But then you came along. You, the one least likely. I mean, you were a guy.

Mike O' Donnell: Pretty much...

Joe Gillis: I'm not an executive, just a writer.
Norma Desmond: You are, are you? writing words, words, more words! Well, you'll make a rope of words and strangle this business! With a microphone there to catch the last gurgles, and Technicolor to photograph the red, swollen tongues!

I've finally found someone I can love - a good, clean love... without utensils.

Marin: Harry was once engaged to Diane Sawyer.
Zoe: Diane Sawyer? No way, I love her!
Erica Barry: That's wonderful!
Harry: Women your age love that about me.
Erica Barry: Ah.
Harry: No, that's a good thing.
Erica Barry: I'm sure you meant it as a compliment.
Harry: Yes, it was meant as a compliment.

I have other interests. I'm a magician.

Reed Rothchild

I was staring through the cage of those meticulous ink strokes - at an absolute beauty.

Andy's Mom:
[speaking to someone else]
Andy's Mom: Andy's going to college. Can you believe it?
Andy: Mom, I'm not leaving 'til Friday.
Andy's Mom: [about Andy's toys in the toy chest] What are you going to do with these old toys?
