Kim: You don't have to worry.
Bryan: That's like telling water not to be wet, sweetie.

Lenore: I don't get you.
Bryan: What?
Lenore: You sacrificed our marriage to the service of the country, you've made a mess of your life in the service of your country; can't you sacrifice a little one time for your own daughter?
Bryan: I would sacrifice anything for her.

Bryan: I don't think a seventeen-year-old should be traveling alone.
Kim: I'm not gonna be alone.
Bryan: Two seventeen-year-olds.
Kim: Amanda's nineteen!
Bryan: How about this? How about if I go along? You won't even know I'm there. I'm very good at being invisible.
Lenore: As you so amply demonstrated for the rest of her life.

Bryan: I have a daughter who wants to be a singer. I was wondering if you have any tips for her.
Diva: Yeah, I do. Tell her pick another career.

Maria Elena: You're still searching for me in every woman.
Juan Antonio: That is not true, Maria Elena. I was in Oviedo some weeks ago with a woman who was the antithesis of you. An American, and something beautiful happened with her. So you're mistaken.
Maria Elena: You'll always seek to duplicate what we had. You know it.

We are meant for each other and not meant for each other. It's a contradiction.

Juan Antonio

I'll go to your room, but you'll have to seduce me.

Cristina

Maria Elena used to say that only unfulfilled love can be romantic.

Juan Antonio

And in the spring, 2003, he looked at me. And I knew, that he knew, who I was. And then he closed his eyes, as if to go to sleep.

Daisy

Some nights, I'd have to sleep alone. I didn't mind, I would listen to the house breathin'. All those people sleepin'. I felt... safe.

Benjamin Button

Benjamin Button: Momma? Momma? Some days, I feel different than the day before.
Queenie: Everyone feels different about themselves one way or another, but we all goin' the same way.

Daisy: You are so much younger.
Benjamin Button: Only on the outside.
