Alice: What's your work?
Dan: I'm sort of... journalist.
Alice: What sort?
Dan: I write obituaries.

Larry: I want you to tell me your name. Please.
[throws down money]
Alice: Thank you. My name is Jane.
Larry: Your real name.
[throws down more money]
Alice: Thank you. My real name is Jane.
Larry: Careful.
[throws down more money]
Alice: Thank you. Still Jane.
Larry: I've about got another 500 quid here. Why don't I just give you all this money, and you tell me what your real name is, Alice.
[throws down all his money]
Alice: I promise.
[picks up some of the money]
Alice: Thank you. My real name... is plain... Jane Jones.

Dan: I fell in love.
Alice: Oh, as if you had no choice? There's a moment, there's always a moment, "I can do this, I can give into this, or I can resist it," and I don't know when your moment was, but I bet you there was one.

Alice: How can one man be so endlessly disappointing?
Dan: That's my charm.

Alice: [in the emergency room] Are we in for a long wait?
Dan: [looks at old woman] She was 21 when she came in.

I don't love you anymore. Goodbye.

No one will ever love you as much as I do. Why isn't love enough?

Larry: I used to come here when it was a punk club. The stage was... Everything is a version of something else. Twenty years ago. How old were you?
Alice: Four.
Larry: Christ. When I was in flares, you were in nappies.
Alice: My nappies were flared.

Customs Officer: Welcome back, Miss Jones.
Alice: Thank you.

Dan: It's not safe out there.
Alice: Oh, and it's safe in here?

Dan: Didn't fancy my sandwiches?
Alice: Don't eat fish.
Dan: Why not?
Alice: Fish piss in the sea.
Dan: So do children.
Alice: Don't eat children either.

Larry: I'll pay you.
Alice: I don't need your money.
Larry: You have my money.
Alice: Thank you.
