Anna: Why is the sex so important?
Larry: Because I'm a fucking caveman!

Lester Burnham: Smile! You're at Mr. Smiley's.
Carolyn Burnham: [stunned] Uh, Buddy, this is my...
Lester Burnham: Her husband. We've met before, but something tells me you're going to remember me this time.

I couldn't stop running it over and over and over in my mind. The vague and distant suspicion that we never understood what happened that night; what our role was.

Marilyn Lovell: Naturally, it's 13. Why 13?

You know, I've had more rewarding friendships than this one. Although I do get to keep telling the same jokes.


Mary Boleyn: You know I love him...
Anne Boleyn: Well, I guess you'll have to stop.

[to Rene] After this I can't live with my parents anymore. I've got to disappear.

Leon Tallis: What do you say, Cee? Does the hot weather make you behave badly? Good heavens, you're blushing.
Cecilia Tallis: Just hot in here, that's all.

Andrew: [Andrew stop playing because Fletcher enters the room] I'm sorry, I...
Terence Fletcher: What's your name?
Andrew: Andrew Neiman sir.
Terence Fletcher: What year are you?
Andrew: I'm a... first year.
Terence Fletcher: You know who I am?
Andrew: Yes sir.
Terence Fletcher: So, you know that I'm looking for players?
Andrew: Yes sir.
Terence Fletcher: Then why did you stop playing?
Terence Fletcher: [Andrew resumes playing] Did I ask you to star playing again?
Andrew: Uh... sorry , I...
Terence Fletcher: I ask why you stop playing and your version of an answer was to turn into a wind-up monkey.
Andrew: Sorry, I...
Terence Fletcher: Show me your rudiments.
Andrew: Yes sir.
Terence Fletcher: Double-time swing.
Terence Fletcher: No, double time. Double it!
Terence Fletcher: Faster. Faster!
Terence Fletcher: [Fletcher goes back to the room] Upsy-daisy. Forget my jacket!

Capt. Ramsey: You do qualify your remarks. If someone asked me if we should bomb Japan, a simple "Yes." By all means sir, drop that fucker, twice! I don't mean to suggest that you're indecisive, Mr. Hunter. Not at all. Just, uh... complicated. 'course, that's the way the Navy wants you. Me, they wanted simple.
Hunter: Well, you certainly fooled them, sir.

Dalton Russell: Soon I'm gonna be sucking down piña coladas in a hot tub with six girls named Amber and Tiffany.
Keith Frazier: No, it's more like in the shower with two guys named Jamal and Jesus... and here's the bad news; that thing you're sucking on? It's not a piña colada!
Nancy Mann: Wanna take another picture? Cause I could bend over and pick up a pencil!

How can someone so charming be so manipulative?
