Paula: What is it with you and Nell?
Jerry: It's like... there's no one else in the world. Like she doesn't need anybody. Can you live your whole life that way, or does it drive you crazy in the end?

I like it here. It's a quiet place. You've got the right idea, Nell. You live with people, you get problems. First they screw you up, then they leave you, right?

Jerry

I've got someone to cover for me. Everybody's replaceable.

Jerry

[translating for Nell to the court] You have big things. You know big things. But you don't look into each other's eyes. And you're hungry for quietness.

Jerry

Nothing and everything, it just hits her sometimes.

Jerry

Chicka, chicka, chickabee. / T'ee an me an t'ee an me. / Ressa, ressa, ressa me, / Chicka, chicka, chickabee.

It's called doing whatever the hell you want whenever the hell you want to, and I grew out of it 'round about the age of six!

Paula
