Why is everything wrong?

Clarissa Vaughn

Obviously, you... feel unworthy. Gives you feelings of unworthiness. You survive and they don't.

Laura Brown

Oh, Mrs. Dalloway... Always giving parties to cover the silence.

Richard Brown

Why do I always have to sit next to the exes? Is this some kind of a hint, sweetheart? Anyway, shouldn't the exes have a table of their own, where they can all ex together in ex-quisite agony?


It would be wonderful to say you regretted it. It would be easy. But what does it mean? What does it mean to regret when you have no choice? It's what you can bear. There it is. No one's going to forgive me. It was death. I chose life.

Laura Brown

Kitty: Oh, you're reading a book?
Laura Brown: Yeah.
Kitty: What's this one about?
Laura Brown: Oh, it's about this woman who's incredibly - well, she's a hostess and she's incredibly confident and she's going to give a party. And, maybe because she's confident, everyone thinks she's fine... but she isn't.

A woman's whole life in a single day. Just one day. And in that day her whole life.

Virginia Woolf

Richard Brown: Who is this party for?
Clarissa Vaughan: What are you asking, what are you trying to say?
Richard Brown: I'm not trying to say anything. I think I'm staying alive just to satisfy you.

Baby. Baby, you have to be brave now.

Laura Brown

I can't think of anything more exhilarating than a trip to London.

Virginia Woolf

Don't worry, honey. Everything's fine. We're going to have a wonderful party. We've made Daddy such a nice cake.

Laura Brown

Your aunt is a very lucky woman, Angelica. She has two lives. She has the life she is leading, and also the books she is writing.
