Anna Quotes:

  • Anna: When I was little, we found a man. He looked like - like, butchered. The old woman in the village crossed themselves... and whispered crazy things, strange things. "El Diablo cazador de hombres." Only in the hottest years this happens. And this year, it grows hot. We begin finding our men. We found them sometimes without their skins... and sometimes much, much worse. "El cazador trofeo de los hombres" means the demon who makes trophies of men.

    Hudson Hawk: Can't we just go back to the kissing part?

    Olaf: [talking to Kristoff while putting his arm back on] Stop it Sven. Try and focus here.

    Olaf: Yeah. Why?

    Kristoff: I'll tell you why, we need Elsa to bring back summer.

    Anna: [kisses him on the cheek] We may.

    [Kristoff kisses Anna]

  • Kristoff: So, uh tell me. What made the Queen go all ice crazy?

    Anna: Oh well, it was all my fault. I got engaged, but then she freaked out because I'd only just met him, you know that day. She said she wouldn't bless the marriage and...

    Kristoff: [Interrupts] Wait, you got engaged to someone you just met that day?

    Anna: Yeah. Anyway I got mad and so she got mad and then she tried to walk away and I grabbed her glove...

    Kristoff: [Interrupts] Hang on, you mean to tell me you got engaged to someone you just met that day?

    Anna: Yes, pay attention, but the thing is she wore the gloves all the time, so I just thought, maybe she has a thing about dirt...

    Kristoff: [Interrupts] Didn't your parents ever warn you about strangers?

    Anna: Yes, they did.

    [Moves further away from Kristoff]

  • [Looking at the remnants of Kristoff's sled]

    Anna: Whoa. I'll replace your sled, and everything in it. And I understand if you don't want to help me anymore.

    Kristoff: [to Sven] Of course I don't want to help her anymore. In fact, this whole thing's ruined me for helping anyone ever again.

    [as Sven]

    Kristoff: She'll die on her own.

    [Normal voice]

    Kristoff: I can live with that.

    [as Sven]

    Kristoff: But you won't get your new sled if she's dead.

    [Normal voice]

    [His hand catches fire]

    Olaf: Ow, but don't touch it.

  • Kristoff: You want to talk about a problem? I sell ice for a living.

    Anna: Ooh, that's a rough business to be in right now. That is really. Ahem. That's unfortunate.

    Anna: The only frozen heart around here is yours.

    [Anna looks at her with a hurt expression; Elsa then turns to leave]

    Anna: [calling after her] What did I ever do to you?

    Elsa: [impatiently] Enough, Anna.

    Anna: No! Why? Why do you shut me out? Why do you shut the world out? What are you so afraid of?

    Elsa: I said enough!

    [In her fury, she conjures up an icicle wall around herself. Everyone - including Anna - stares at her in fright. Elsa shrinks back at what she's done]

    Duke: Sorcery.

    [hides behind one of his bodyguards]

    Duke: I knew there was something dubious going on here.

    Anna: [shocked] Elsa.

    [Devastated, Elsa flees the ballroom]

  • Anna: [after falling on top of Prince Hans] This is awkward. Not you're awkward but just because we're. I'm awkward, you're gorgeous. Wait what?

  • Anna: Um, I was just wondering, has another young woman, the queen perhaps, I don't know, come through here recently?

    Oaken: The only one crazy enough to be out in this storm is you, dear.

    [Kristof enters, covered in snow and ice]

    Oaken: You and this fellow.

  • Anna: It's not nice to throw people!

  • Anna: Can I say something crazy?

    Hans: Oh, Anna. If only there was someone out there who loved you.

    [Gets up and leaves]

    Anna: What?

    [Shocked, she turns to see him walking to a window]

    Anna: Y-You said you did.

    Hans: [Closing the curtains] As thirteenth in line in my own kingdom, I didn't stand a chance. I knew, I'd have to marry into the throne somewhere.

    Anna: What-what are you talking about?

    Hans: [puts out a candle] As heir, Elsa was preferable, of course, but no one was getting anywhere with her. But you.

    Anna: Hans?

    Hans: You were so desperate for love, you were willing to marry me, just like that!

    [He picks up a pitcher of water and goes to the fireplace]

    Hans: I figured after we married, I'd have to stage a little accident for Elsa.

    [He pours water onto the fire, putting it out. Anna reaches out to stop him, but collapses onto the floor]

    Anna: Hans, no! Stop!

    Hans: But then she doomed herself, and you were dumb enough to go after her.

    Anna: Please.

    Hans: [chuckles] All that's left now is to kill Elsa and bring back summer.

    Anna: [bravely] You're no match for Elsa.

    Hans: No, you're no match for Elsa. I, on the other hand, am the hero who's going to save Arendelle from destruction.

    [Hans walks to the door]

    Anna: [angrily] You won't get away with this!

    Hans: Oh I already have.

    [Hans leaves, locking the door behind him]

  • [last lines]

    Anna: I like the open gates.

    Elsa: We are never closing them again.

    [uses her magic to give Anna a pair of skates]

    Anna: Oh, Elsa, they're beautiful, but you know I don't skate.

    Elsa: [pulling her] Come on! You can do it!

    Kristoff: Look out. Reindeer coming through.

    Anna: I got it, I got it. I don't got it, I don't got it.

    Olaf: Hey, guys!

    Elsa: That's it, Olaf.

    Olaf: Glide and pivot. And glide and pivot.

    Elsa: Go!

    [laughs, pan out with triumphant instrumental reprise of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?"]

  • Duke: [to Anna] You, is there sorcery in you, too? Are you a monster, too?

    Anna: No! No, I'm completely ordinary.

    Hans: That's right, she is.

    [Anna looks at him quizzically]

    Hans: In-in the best way.

    [Anna smiles at him]

  • Anna: Snow, it had to be snow. She couldn't have had tropical magic that covered the fjords in white sand and warm.

    [spots trading post in distance]

    Anna: Fire!

  • [repeated line]

    Anna: Wait, what?

  • Anna: [knocking on the doors of Elsa's ice palace] It opened. That's a first. Oh, you should probably wait out here.

    Anna: Last time I introduced her to a guy, she froze everything.

  • Anna: But Hans is not a stranger.

    Kristoff: Oh yeah? What's his last name?

    Anna: Of the Southern aisles.

    Kristoff: What's his favourite food?

    Anna: Sandwiches.

    Kristoff: Best friends name?

    Anna: Probably John.

    Kristoff: Eye color?

    Anna: Dreamy.

    Kristoff: Foot size?

    Anna: Foot size doesn't matter.

    Kristoff: Have you had a meal with him yet? What if you hate the way he eats? What if you hate the way he picks his nose?

    Anna: Picks his nose?

    Kristoff: And eats it.

    Anna: Excuse me sir, he is a prince.

    Kristoff: All men do it.

    Anna: Ew.

  • Anna: I never knew winter could be so beautiful.

    Olaf: Yeah, it really is beautiful, isn't it? But it's so white. Y'know, how about a little color? I'm thinking maybe some crimson, chartreuse. How about yellow? No, not yellow. Yellow and snow?


    Olaf: No go. Am I right?

  • Anna: [seeing a mountain in their way] What now?

    Kristoff: Hmm. It's too steep. I've only got one rope and you don't know how to climb mountains.

    Anna: Says who?

    Kristoff: What are you doing?

    Anna: [having started to climb the mountain] I'm going to see my sister!

    Kristoff: You're gonna kill yourself. I wouldn't put my foot there.

    Anna: [plants her foot and it slips] You're distracting me.

    Kristoff: Or there. How do you know Elsa even wants to see you?

    Anna: All right, I'm just blocking you out because I gotta concentrate here.

    Kristoff: You know, most people who disappear into the mountains want to be alone.

    Anna: Nobody wants to be alone. Except maybe you.

    Kristoff: I'm not alone. I have friends, remember?

    Anna: [sarcastically] You mean the love experts?

    Kristoff: Yes, the love experts.

    Anna: [struggling] Please tell me I'm almost there.

    [She's shown to be just a few feet off the ground]

    Anna: Does the air seem a bit thin to you up here?

  • Anna: You kind of set off an eternal winter everywhere.

    Elsa: Everywhere?

    Anna: It's okay, you can just unfreeze it.

    Elsa: No, I can't. I don't know how.

    Anna: Sure you can. I know you can.

  • Olaf: [Olaf grunts as he struggles to get Anna next to the fireplace] So, where's Hans? What happened to your kiss?

    Anna: I was wrong about him... it wasn't... true love.

    Olaf: But we ran all the way here.

    Anna: Please Olaf, you can't stay here; you'll melt.

    Olaf: I am not leaving here until we find some other act of true love to save you! Do you happen to have any ideas?

    Anna: I don't even know what love is.

    Olaf: That's okay, I do. Love... is... putting someone else's needs before yours; like, you know, how Kristoff brought you back here to Hans and left you forever.

    Anna: Kristoff... loves me?

    Olaf: Wow, you really don't know anything about love, do you?

    Anna: Olaf, you're melting!

  • Anna: Oh, but this is a lie!

    King: [in agreement] It is a FALSE lie!

  • Anna: In your house she's just another woman. Like a bowl of rice is a bowl of rice no different from any other bowl of rice.

    King: Now you understand about women! So, many English books talk about love etc etc etc ha!

    Anna: You disapprove?

    King: It is a silly complication of a general simplicity. A woman is designed for pleasing man that is all. A man is deigned to be pleased by many women

    Anna: Then how do you explain, your majesty, that many men remain faithful to one wife

    King: They are sick.

    Anna: Oh, but you do expect women to be faithful?

    King: Naturally!

    Anna: Well why naturally?

    King: Because it is natural. It is like old Siamese saying. A girl is like a blossom, with honey for just one man. A man is like a honey bee and gather all he can. To fly from blossom to blossom a honey must be free. But blossom must not ever fly from bee to bee to bee.

    Anna: Hee hee. Oh your majesty in England we have a far different attitude. We believe for a man to be truly happy he must love one woman and one woman only.

    King: This idea was invented by woman.

    Anna: Oh but it's a great idea your majesty and in England we're brought up with it. When your young and at your first dance.

    King: Young girl? They dance also. Like I see you in arms of stranger tonight not a husband.

    Anna: Why of course!

    King: I would not permit it.

    Anna: Ha when your young and at your first dance, and your sitting on a small guilt chair with your eyes lowered, terrified that you'll be a wall flower. Suddenly, you see two black shoes, a white waist coat, a face, it speaks.

  • King: ...Pairs of male elephants to be released into the forests of America. There it is hoped that they will grow in number and the people can tame them and use them as beasts of burden.

    Anna: But your majesty, I don't think you mean pairs of MALE elephants.

  • Lady Thiang: They think you dress like that because you shaped like that!

    Anna: Well I most certainly am not!

  • King: You are very difficult woman!

    Anna: Perhaps so, Your Majesty.

  • Kralahome: [to Anna] Why are you so blind; have you no eyes to see? King tries impossible task - wishing to be scientific man who know all modern things... He will only tear himself in two, trying to be something he can never be!

    Anna: Of course he can never be, if those who are closest to him are unwilling to help him!

    Kralahome: You do not know King as well as you think you do. You believe you have great influence over him. You will end up as his slave-like all the others!

  • King: I do not remember such words.

    Anna: I remember them.

    King: I will do remembering!

  • King: You think you teach King lesson, but this is one lesson you do not be paid for teaching. In the future, you will stop instructing wives and children in silly English song "Home Sweet House". To remind me of breaking promises I never make, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

    Anna: Your majesty, I do not intend to have my boy brought up in a harem, and you did promise me a house; "a brick residence adjoining the palace," those were your very words in the letter.

    King: [obviously does remember] I do not remember such words.

    Anna: I remember them.

    King: I will do remembering. Who is king here? I remind you, so you remember that? I do not remember any promises. I do not remember anything, except that you are my servant.

    Anna: Oh, no, your majesty.

    King: What, what, what? I said you are my servant.

    Anna: No, your majesty, that is not true. I am most certainly not your servant, and what is more, if you do not give me the house you promised, I shall be forced to return to England immediately.

    [children protest]

    Princess Ying Yaawolak: I believe in snow!

    Lady Thiang: Do not let her go away.

    King: I let her do nothing that is not my pleasure. It is my pleasure that you stay here, in palace, in palace!

    Anna: No, your majesty.

    King: [heavy sigh] Why do you wish to leave these children, all of whom are loving you so extraordinarily?

    Anna: I do not wish to leave them. I love them, too, quite extraordinarily, but I cannot stay in a country where a promise has no meaning.

    King: I will hear no more about this promise!

    Anna: A land where there is talk of honor and a wish for Siam to take its place among the modern nations of the world, where there is talk of great changes, but where everything still remains according to the wishes of the king.

    King: You will say no more! No more!

    Anna: I will say no more, because there is no more to say. Come, Louis.

    [Anna and Louis leave. Children protest]

    King: Out, out, OUT!

    [everyone, except the King, leaves]

  • Anna: All properly dressed English ladies always wear undergarments.

    King: I have opinion that, in this regard, England is very backward nation.

  • Lady Thiang: [meeting Anna for the first time]


    Lady Thiang: There is a happy land, far far away, where saints in glory stand bright, bright as day!

    Lady Thiang: [Anna looks confused] Mis-on-ary!

    Anna: Oh, a missionary taught you English!

  • Anna: You have an ass that makes me wanna dry hump!

    Ben: Did you just say 'Dry hump'?

    Anna: Yep.

    Ben: I think I just fell in love.

  • Anna: You're a good sheep farmer!

    Albert: Oh my god, please! I suck at sheep. Louise was right, I can't keep track of them. There was a sheep in the whorehouse the last week.

    Anna: Really?

    Albert: Yeah. Wandered in there, and then when I went to pick it up, somehow it had made 20 dollars.

  • Anna: There is something about connecting over mutual hatred that is just so much deeper than mutual love.

  • Anna: I don't think you should leave tomorrow. At least stay through the weekend. Isn't the fair on Saturday?

    Albert: Oh, fuck that. I'm not going to the stupid fair. Louise is gonna be there, and she's gonna be with Foy. I don't wanna put myself through that kind of fucking aggravation.

    Anna: Yeah, well, I'll go with you. No better way to make your ex-girlfriend want you back more than to let her see you with another girl.

    Albert: I don't know...

    Anna: Especially a smoking hot girl. When she sees me, she'll be intimidated as fuck.

    Albert: Oh, you're very modest, I see.

    Anna: I'm a little cocky. But I got great tits.

  • Anna: So how did you guys meet?

    Albert: She moved to town a couple of years ago to take over the schoolmarm job. Our old schoolmarm got her throat slit by a fast moving tumbleweed.

  • Anna: Come on, let's go.

    Albert: No, no, no, no! I suck at dancing.

    Anna: No one will notice.

    Albert: How will they not notice?

    Anna: 'Cause you suck at everything.

  • Albert: [At target practice] I fired a gun at the shooting gallery.

    Anna: Yeah, but those are quarter loads. These are full loads.

    Albert: Okay, all right, get ready. I'm about to shoot a full load at your cans.

  • Anna: God, why are the Indians always so mad?

    Albert: I don't know.

    Anna: I mean we're basically splitting this country 50/50 with them.

    Albert: They're just selfish.

  • Albert: Hey, sorry I killed your husband.

    Anna: Oh God, that was never gonna work out anyway. He was Methodist, I'm half Jewish.

    Albert: Yeah... Are you? You are?

    Anna: No.

    Albert: Oh, thank God.

    Anna: You're not really Arabic, are you?

    Albert: No, no, no, no.

    Anna: Oh, thank God, 'cause I was like,

    [mimics gun to her head]

    Anna: Ah, kill me.

    Albert: I know, right?

  • Anna: Your dick is out!

  • Declan: [slams Anna's suitcase on the ground] How does that work?

    Anna: Can you be careful with that, it was a gift from my boyfriend!

    Declan: He bought you a suitcase?

    Anna: It's a Vuitton.

    Declan: What?

    Anna: A Louis Vuitton?

    Declan: Come on. Ah, is it yourself Louis? Can I give you a hand getting into the car Louis? She named her suitcase, she's a crackpot.

  • Declan: Mrs. O'Brady Callhan. Where the hell are you going?

    Anna: You said no.

    Declan: I didn't say no. I didn't say anything.

    Anna: You walked away.

    Declan: I was getting something.

    Anna: Really? That was a good time to go get something?

    Declan: Yeah, it was actually.

    [Presents Anna with a ring]

  • Anna: When my 60 seconds came around i realized i had everything i ever wanted... but nothing i really needed. and i think what i need is here. and i came all this way to see if you maybe think so too. If you do, well... i don't really have plans past that, which is new for me.

  • Anna: You fried my blackberry

    Declan: You fried the whole village, idiot!

    Anna: [as she forces Declan awake] You lying, deceiving, son of a - Get up, get up, get up!

    Declan: Wha-what?

    Anna: Oh? Heads you win, tails I lose.

    Declan: [smirks] Oh, you finally got that did you? Well then, good for you.

    Anna: Up, get up! This is my bed. Liars forfeit.

    [as she sniffs him]

    Anna: And take a shower, you smell.

    Anna: Can you?... can you?

    Declan: [as he runs to the shower] Okay, liars forfeit, liars forfeit! No peeking!

  • Anna: What about my suitcase?

    Declan: Don't worry about Louie, I'll get it!

  • Declan: I don't want not to make plans with you. I want to make plans with you.

    Anna: You do?

    Declan: Yeah I do.

  • Anna: What are you, the Lucky Charms leprecaun?

  • Anna: Do you wanna talk about it?

    Declan: Listen, Bob. You're not in America now, you're in Ireland. So have a drink and shut up.

  • [last lines]

    Anna: Are you sure she's gonna make it?

    Declan: Remember, she's a classic. It's good as new even after some crazy woman tried to push her off the road.

    Anna: I didn't try to push her off the road. I was scrapping cow poo off my shoe, because some rude man didn't help me with the cows.

    Declan: Only because someone was being pig-headed couldn't wait.

    Anna: Shut up.

    Declan: [starts the car] There we are. Right.

    [retrieves map]

    Declan: Where to?

    Anna: [throws the map into the back] Just drive.

    Declan: Alright, Bob...

    [cans and a Just Married sign on the back]

    Anna: Wait a minute. Where's Louie?

    Declan: Louie? He's fine. I strapped him to the roof.

    Anna: You strapped him to the roof? He'll get filthy up there.

    Declan: Don't worry, we'll throw him in wash. He'll be grand.

  • Declan: What the hell are you doing here?

    Anna: could you maybe be nice for just a second, i just flied 3,000 miles just to get here

  • Anna: Jeremy and me, it didn't work out.

    Declan: I'm sorry.

    Anna: Well, when my 60 seconds came around, I realized I had everything I ever wanted, but nothing I really needed. And I think that what I need is here. And I came all this way to see if maybe you might think so too. And if you do... Well, I don't really have any plans past that, which is new for me. So, Declan O'Callaghan, and I should probably learn your middle name, here is my proposal. I propose we *not* make plans. I propose we give this thing a chance and let it work out how it works out. So what do you say? Do you want to *not* make plans with me?

    Declan: [confusion becomes amusement, and he walks away]

    Anna: [gathers herself, and then to the restaurant patrons] I guess that's an Irish "no".

    [and rushes out of he restaurant]

    Declan: [catches up with her at the sea] Mrs. O'Brady Callaghan. Where the hell are you going?

    Anna: You said no.

    Declan: I did not say no. I didn't say anything.

    Anna: You walked away.

    Declan: I was gettin' somethin'

    Anna: Really. That was a good time to go get something?

    Declan: Yeah, it was actually. I was gettin' this.

    [pulls a ring from his pocket]

    Declan: I wouldn't be holding this ring if it weren't for you. I reject your proposal. I don't wanna *not* make plans with you. I wanna *make* plans with you.

  • Declan: Jesus Christ!

    Anna: Lord.

  • Anna: We can get a cab...

    Declan: You have legs, haven't you?

    Anna: My best feature, so I'm told.

    Declan: [looking down] Who told you that?

  • Anna: [after Declan proposed to her and she accepted] I'm so relieved, I thought I wasn't gonna have a place to stay tonight.

    Declan: What? You think you're staying with me? This might cost you.

    Anna: Put it on my bill.

    [They kiss]

  • Anna: I have other interests besides shopping. I have a life, a job.

    Declan: What do you do then?

    Anna: I stage apartments.

    Declan: Stage apartments, huh? E... what's that?

    Anna: Well, when someone is selling an apartment or home, I bring stuff in and make it look as beautiful as I can.

    Declan: And they get to keep all the stuff when they buy it?

    Anna: No, I take it away. I'm just presenting them with the possibilities. I put a sheen on it.

    Declan: Hang on. So you do a job, yeah?

    Anna: Yeah.

    Declan: They buy the house, yeah?

    Anna: Yeah.

    Declan: And then you come along and you take all the stuff away again.

    Anna: Yeah.

    Declan: You're a con artist.

    Anna: Feet!

    Realtor: [cut to high-rise apartment] Anna Brady, I'm so happy to have you here. This is the third open house and not one bite.

    Anna: Don't worry. I have everything under control.

    Jerome: [cut to lobby] Anna, you are realtor?

    Anna: I'm a stager. I stage apartments *for* realtors. I transform ordinary spaces into something special. Most people don't know what it is they want until I show them, and so many places need my help. - Not the Davenport, course.

    Anna: [cut to dress fitter] It's just a very thin line between elegant and daring. I think just a quarter inch higher. Less than an eighth of an inch? We'll get it right.

    [stabbed with a pin]

    Anna: Ouch! You did it on purpose, knock it off.

  • Anna: Hi! I'd like a ticket to Cork, please.

    Agent: Ferry's cancelled.

    Anna: What is wrong with this country?

    Agent: I usually blame the government, but this one's the weather.

    Helen: Yes. Totally and utterly and completely over him.

    Anna: No you're not.

    Helen: I am.

    Anna: You're not.

    Helen: Anna, I'm over him! What do you mean I'm not? How do you know I'm not?

    Anna: Well, two things really. One, you're still counting how long you've been apart in days - and probably hours and minutes - but the big-flashing-red-light way of telling you're not really over someone is when you're still reading their horoscope in the hope that they're going to get wiped out in some freak napalming incident.

    Helen: Smartass!

    [tosses the paper at Anna]

    Anna: [opens the paper] What is he?

    Helen: A wanker.


    Helen: Oh. Aries.

    Anna: Aries... Aries... well, just shows how much I know.


    Anna: "With Mars your ruler in the ascendancy, you will get wiped out in a freak napalming incident and Helen says bollocks to you." This guy's very good.

    Helen: Hey, I'm not as drunk as thinkle peep I am.

    Helen: Yes, just going quietly mad.

    Anna: Thank goodness for that. I was worried.

  • Anna: I am here to fulfill your dreams.

  • Anna: How about a nice colagen buff?

    Madeline Ashton: "A colagen buff"? You might as well ask me to wash with soap and water!

    Anna: I could do your make-up myself...

    Madeline Ashton: Make-up is POINTLESS! It does nothing anymore! Are you even listening to me? Do you even care? You stand there with your 22-year- old skin and your tits like ROCKS and laugh at me...


  • Anna: Mr.Chagall! I'm sorry, Mr.Chagall. I'm really, really sorry.

    Chagall: Anna, don't talk, just go away. Leave us alone, I don't want to look at you anymore.

    Chagall: Thank you so much.

  • Anna: I am sorry, but the plasma separation is a very traumatic process to the body! Our policy clearly prohibits more than one in a six-month period.

    Anna: [smiles] I'd like that.

  • Jake: You know, I've been thinking about that kiss.

    Anna: [puzzled] Kiss?

You go to Motor Vehicles to get your license renewed, and you get on this line that reaches to Spain, and right next to it is this little short line with only two guys on it, but you don't get on that line, 'cause you think something must be "wrong" with it - otherwise everyone else would be on it - so you waste three hours!

    Anna: I got on the short line once. It was for farm vehicles.

And I remember thinking "You know, people get paid to do this - to think of the game and create the characters." Like there's this one character Blanka; he's like half human and half lizard who eats his opponents. Well ya know he either zaps them with lightning or he... bites their faces off.


    Roy: It's pretty cool huh?

    Anna: So you'd design video games?

    Roy: Nah, I'd kinda like to be Blanka.

  • Anna: Why do you smoke pot?

    Roy: Something to do.

  • Anna: I've never done anything. I've never broken curfew, or cut class... or made out on a rooftop.

    [kisses Kyle]

  • Anna: Do I look like I need the answers?

    Roy: You look like you need a PIMP!

  • Anna: Have you ever made love to a perfect stranger?

    Alex: Now you're teasing me.

    Anna: I believe I am.

    Alex: Well, I mean... No, not exactly a perfect stranger, if you mean someone I wouldn't know at all.

    Anna: It's sad.

    Alex: It's sad? Why?

    Anna: Because there's almost nothing more exciting than fucking somebody you don't know. Right? You don't know their name, barely saw their face.

    Alex: Don't... Don't tell me your name.

  • Anna: Life is pretty much in the grays for the most part and if you insist always on black and white... you are going to be very unhappy.

  • Anna: Have you ever tried meditating?

  • [Sonja meets Ivan's widow in church]

    Anna: You're praying for Ivan?

    Sonja: Yes. Your husband, I loved him, as you know.

    Anna: I wanted you to have some of his possessions.

    Sonja: How kind.

    Anna: I kept his sword and gold watch... but here, I'm giving you his mustache.

    Sonja: I'll cherish it.

    Anna: Also some string. Ivan saved string.

    Sonja: I know. It was one of the reasons why I loved him.

    Anna: I understand that. I loved him for his string, too.

    Sonja: Anything else for me?

    Anna: I thought we should divide his letters. Do you want the vowels or the consonants?

  • Anna: What a husband doesn't know won't hurt his wife.

  • Maria Tura: [Talking about the aviator who sent the flowers] It's true, Anna, I don't know who it is. But I'm positive who it might be.

    Anna: You mean that young aviator?

    Maria Tura: Yes, he's very young. He's in the second row again. He gets better-looking every night... Don't misunderstand me. I love my husband dearly, and why not? He's wonderful. Only he gets so unreasonable, so upset about little things.

    Anna: Like the little thing in the second row.

  • Anna: Oh, Henry, this might interest you. The mother whale in the Ukraine had triplets.

    Henry: She told me she was on the pill!

  • Lou: Great. "Gotcha" with a slammer.

    Anna: Oh yeah, god forbid this paper ever runs anything without an exclamation mark.

  • Henry: I don't think so, I don't think so. You know, TV's gonna be all over it. They already are. It's a minor derailment. And Carmen has got great day two stuff on the Williamsburg murders. If they make a bust, we have to follow up on that.

    Alicia: The subway's a major story.

    Anna: Nobody died.

    Lou: Somebody got maimed.

    Alicia: Yeah, that helps.

    Henry: [mocking] Minor derailment!

  • Anna: [Melodia on street] You're making me feel like I have to break up with you- and I don't even know you.

  • Anna: [Melodia on the street] You're making me feel like I have to break up with you- and I don't even know you!

  • Sadie: You do realize that Calvin's a girl?

    Shuli: And? I want to see if she will come to Sacramento with us.

    Anna: [sarcastic] This isn't a dating service, you know.

    Sadie: Sorry, Shuli. Last time anyone checked, you liked men.

    Shuli: Who said I didn't? Jesus, you dykes are such closed-minded bitches.

  • Anna: I thought you said this was a girl's group.

    Sadie: It is. Aggie gets a free pass for being born with a clit.

    Shuli: Hey! He's not in a fucking circus, you can stop gawking at him.

    Shuli: Sorry, I didn't mean to look at you.

    Aggie: It's OK, I'm used to it.

    Sadie: Aggie's a tough one. Not everyone's got the balls to take it.

    Shuli: No pun intended, of course.

  • Shuli: So where did Sadie find you?

    Anna: At my work.

    Shuli: So what's it like working in a place that encourages women to view themselves as sex objects?

    Anna: You know, some women just wanna look good.

    Shuli: The death rate from liposuction victims is higher from the death rate from automobile accidents. Hope you sleep well at night.

  • Sadie: Look, I may have my problems, but I would never go behind your back and fuck one of your best friends, Ana!

    Anna: Sadie!

    Sadie: That is low!

    Anna: I'm sorry!

    Sadie: I don't want to see you again! EVER! Don't follow me!

    Anna: Sadie, please!

    Sadie: Put some fucking clothes on!

  • Sadie: Meat's an amazing artist.

    Anna: What are you making?

    Shuli: If it were any of your business, you'd know.

  • Anna: Forgive those who only think of themselves. Forgive those who are greedy and cheap. And those who deceive and cheat or grow rich by paying miserable wages. Dear lord, forgive them. Forgive them. And Lord, forgive those who humiliate and desecrate. Forgive those who torture and kill. Forgive those who bomb and destroy cities and villages. Forgive those who are dishonest, those who lie and are false. Forgive governments who withhold the truth from the people. Dear Lord, forgive them. Forgive those who are heartless, merciless, and quick to pass judgment. Please Lord, forgive them. Forgive courts that pass sentences which are too harsh or convict the innocent. Forgive them.

    The minister: Anna... We have to close and lock up now.

    Anna: Forgive newspapers and TV channels that mislead. That distract attention from that which is important. Dear Lord, forgive them.

    The minister: There now, Anna. We have to close and lock up now.

    Anna: Dear Lord, forgive them. Forgive them.

  • Anna: An old love is like an empty bottle of champagne: you don't refill it, you get a new bottle.

  • Lisa Helena Fellini: Anna, do you know what it means to be happy?

    Anna: Yes, of course.

    Lisa Helena Fellini: But I mean really happy.

    Anna: But that kind of happy only gets you in trouble.

  • Lisa Helena Fellini: Where's the telephone?

    Anna: I put him in the dish. Don't let him out. While he's in there, you're safe.

    Lisa Helena Fellini: I am safe whether he is in or out!

  • Angelo Barberini: [after asking if he should tell their parents he's gay and she tries to talk him out of it] So you think this will kill them?

    Anna: Yeah, it will kill them.

    Anna: [suddenly realizes what she's saying] Tell them!

  • Angelo: Are you okay?

    Anna: I will be once the Valium kicks in.

  • Anna: So, how's your writing going?

    Angelo: Never better - I gave up.

  • Anna: [on the phone with Nino] Nino, it's Anna. My mom just told your mom... head for the hills!

  • Anna: [after finding out about Angelo and Nino] I'm thrilled you two are a couple, yay. I reacted the way I did cause I saw my brother naked. You know, eew.

  • Anna: Gee! Time flies when you're mortified.

  • Angelo: Cry, Ma. Cry. Because I'm like Pa, I want to inflict my pain on all of you. It's stronger than my guilt right now. So cry. Cry over your ingrate son, over your dead sister... or your stupid, worthless life.

    Anna: Angelo, that's enough!

    [slaps him in the face]

    Angelo: And there we have it. The slap. The end to the quintessential Italian melodrama.

  • Anna: [singing] When you came in sight, I got that old feeling.

  • Lloyd: Right, so we're going to have to break the guys out, so we're going to have to blow out the side wall... have you got any explosives?

    Anna: No... but I can get some tomorrow

    Lloyd: Fuck, that'll be too late

  • Anna: My husband was a decent man... but he had a tortured soul... I'm glad you made him happy for a time

  • Anna: Why don't you just kill us?

    Peter: [smiling] You shouldn't forget the importance of entertainment.

  • Paul: Okay, we bet- what time is it?

    Peter: 8:40.

    Paul: That in, let's say, 12 hours all three of you are gonna be kaput. Okay?

    Anna: What?

    Paul: You bet that you'll be alive tomorrow at 9 o'clock and we bet that you'll be dead. Okay?

    Peter: They don't want to bet.

    Paul: Well it's not an option. There has to be a bet.

    [turns toward camera, breaks fourth wall, addressing the audience]

    Paul: I mean, what do you think? You think they stand a chance? Well, you're on their side, aren't you? Who are you betting on, hmm?

    Peter: But, wait, what kind of bet is this? If they're dead, they can't live up to their side. If they win, they can't live either.

    Paul: Yes, they'll lose either way. That's what I'm saying.

  • Paul: Okay, let's play another game. It's a guessing game.

    [Paul takes out a golf ball]

    Paul: What is this?

    [Paul drops the ball on the floor]

    Paul: [to George] Sir?

    George: It's a golf ball.

    Paul: Correct! It's a *golf* ball... But why do I have it in my pocket? Hm? The lady knows why. Because... Well?

    [Paul, exasperated, turns to Peter]

    Paul: Well?

    Peter: Because you didn't hit it.

    Paul: Correct! Because I didn't hit it! And *why* didn't I hit it?

    Peter: Because something stopped you.

    Paul: Correct. Because I had to test the club in another way.

    Anna: [realizing what has happened] Where is he?

  • Anna: Why are you doing this, why are you helping us?

    Nikolai Luzhin: I can't become king if someone else already sits on the throne.

  • Anna: My uncle has gone missing, since I told you about him translating the diary.

    Nikolai Luzhin: Your uncle is fine, he is in Edinburgh, in a 5-Star Hotel. I was ordered to send him to Heaven with a bullet in his brain... instead I gave him a first class ticket to Scotland. He is old-school, he understands things... exile or death.

  • Anna: So you've read the diary. How can you keep doing what you're doing?

    Nikolai Luzhin: I'm just a driver.

  • Stepan: Anna, how is it that your boyfriend wasn't here to carve?

    Anna: I don't live with Oliver anymore, Uncle Stepan. Living back here for a bit.

    Helen: For as long as you want.

    Stepan: I knew he would run away from you.

    Anna: He didn't run away. Christ, you make me sound like a burning building.

    Stepan: Black men always run away.

    Helen: Oh Stepan!

    Stepan: I'm not allowed to be honest?

    Helen: He was a doctor, Stepan.

    Anna: What has that got to do with anything?

    Stepan: It's not natural to mix race and race. That's why your baby died inside you.

  • Anna: How did you get in here?

    Semyon: There are always open doors, Anna Ivanovna.

  • Anna: Have you ever met a girl named Tatiana?

    Nikolai Luzhin: I meet lot of girls named Tatiana.

    Anna: She was pregnant.

    Nikolai Luzhin: Ah, in that case - no, I've never heard of her.

    Anna: She died on my shift.

    Nikolai Luzhin: I thought you did birth?

    Anna: Sometimes birth and death go together. She came in with needle punches all over both arms. Probably a prostitute, at the age of fourteen. Do you think Semyon's son knew her?

    Nikolai Luzhin: [growing agitated] I am driver. I go left, I go right, I go straight ahead - that's it.

    Gerald Fletcher: What's the matter? You got gut trouble or something?

    Anna: No, darling. Just doing my exercises.

    [in the phone]

    Anna: Listen, Janet, Gerald's just walked in. I must ring off.

  • Anna: Life is splendid with him. He guides me so well. He requires of me very beautiful things, very rigorous. You know, he is self-taught. Yes, he has done it all. He looked at me with the eyes of an inventor, with the eyes of a researcher, like I was an invaluable discovery, as if I had the solution to something. Something secret and mysterious that is hidden deep inside him. Sometimes I get so close, so near, but more often I am light years away? Curious, isn't it? It's my life, this thing, this thing like an enigma. An enigma that glues us together, both of us accomplices together. Maybe our love will die if it is solved too early or maybe not at all.

  • Anna: You look wonderful!

    Michael: Anna I love you, but you're such a liar.

  • Oleg: You like the house, don't you?

    Anna: I hate this house. I hate it. I hate everything it stands for. And I will never live in this house, and neither will Alex.

    Alex: Aw, come on!

    Anna: We are leaving tomorrow.

    Oleg: [slams his hand on the table] Now you listen to me. I bought this fucking house for you. If you ever want to see another penny from me, then you're going to fucking live here and we are gonna be a fucking family, and that's an order.

    Anna: [after Oleg leaves the room] Over my dead body.

  • [last lines]

    Anna: In 2009, a deadly virus burned through our civilization, pushing humankind to the edge of extinction. Dr. Robert Neville dedicated his life to the discovery of a cure and the restoration of humanity. On September 9th, 2012, at approximately 8:49 P.M., he discovered that cure. And at 8:52, he gave his life to defend it. We are his legacy. This is his legend. Light up the darkness.

  • Anna: The world is quieter now. We just have to listen. If we listen, we can hear God's plan.

    Neville: God's plan.

    Anna: Yeah.

    Neville: All right, let me tell you about your "God's plan". Seven billion people on Earth when the infection hit. KV had a ninety-percent kill rate, that's five point four billion people dead. Crashed and bled out. Dead. Less than one-percent immunity. That left twelve million healthy people, like you, me, and Ethan. The other five hundred and eighty-eight million turned into your dark seekers, and then they got hungry and they killed and fed on everybody. Everybody! Every *single* person that you or I has ever known is dead! Dead! There is no god!

  • Anna: When we were separated at 15, I said I would never love anyone else, ever. I would never become attached, I'd never stay put anywhere, I'd have nothing for myself; I decided I would pretend to be alive. And this is what I've been waiting for, all this time, renouncing all possible lives, for one only, with you.

  • Nemo Nobody adult: There's no life without you.

    Anna: Go slowly. I have to get used to it. I talked to you so much when you weren't there, it's strange for me to talk to you for real.

  • Nemo Nobody adult: [on telephone] I'm gonna be a little late.

    Anna: It's okay, don't worry.

    Nemo Nobody adult: I love you.

    Anna: I love you more.

    Larry: Better?

    Anna: Gentler.

    Larry: What does that mean?

    Anna: You know what it means.

    Larry: Tell me!

    Anna: No.

    Larry: I treat you like a whore?

    Anna: Sometimes.

    Larry: Why would that be?

  • Anna: Why is the sex so important?

    Larry: Because I'm a fucking caveman!

  • Larry: You're seeing him now? Since when?

    Anna: Since my opening last year.


    Anna: I'm disgusting.

    Larry: You're phenomenal. You're so clever.

  • Anna: Don't stop loving me. I can see it draining out of you. It's me, remember? It was a stupid thing to do and it meant nothing. If you love me enough, you'll forgive me.

  • Larry: Why didn't you just tell me the second I walked through the door?

    Anna: I was scared.

    Larry: You're a coward, you spoiled bitch.

  • Anna: But, Boris, this is genius.

    Medical Professor: Really? I thought it was Rachmaninoff. I'm going for a smoke.

  • Anna: I thought I understood it, that I could grasp it, but I didn't, not really. Only the smudgeness of it; the pink-slippered, all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it. I didn't realize it would sometimes be more than whole, that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea. Because it's the halves that halve you in half. I didn't know, don't know, about the in-between bits; the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.

  • Anna: [on the phone with Jacob] I just have to say one thing and it's really important that you just listen to me. I just... It doesn't feel like this, this thing is gonna go away, it's always there. I can't... I can't get on with my life.

  • Anna: It's someone that is very close to me and he's been quite an inspiration in my life. And i almost through my writing i wanted to give something back.

    Liz: Yeah, when i was reading it just made me think about the fact when i was working in NY, my husband was in LA, so he was driving across country. So, on the way over he would take all these pictures of himself and the dog at varies places. So, I sent photos of me and we got all them together and they were all the moment and time being separate, but yet we were together on these photographs.

    Anna: Yeah, that's the challenge!

    Liz: Yeah, it's hard. It made me missing more...

  • Anna: Do you want something to drink? I only have whiskey.

  • Anna: I don't feel very young.

    Liz: Well, you are.

  • Anna: Did you see how on I was tonight?

  • Anna: I can't exist by myself because I'm afraid of myself, because I'm the maker of my own evil.

  • Anna: Because you say "I" for me.

  • Anna: [to Zimmermann, about the creature] He's very tired. He made love to me all night.

  • Anna: Goodness is only some kind of reflection upon evil. That's all it is.

  • Anna: What I miscarried there was sister Faith, and what was left is sister Chance. So I had to take care of my faith to protect it.

  • Anna: No one is good or bad, but if you want, I'm the bad one. And if I knew he existed in this world, I would have never had Bob with you!

    Anna: Find out what she likes and bring it to her. I like bourbon, for example.

    James: Where would I bring it?

    Anna: Not that clever either, huh?

  • Anna: [Showing off her party gown] What do you think?

    James: I prefer the mustache.

  • James: I don't get you man.

    Anna: Who says you're supposed to?

  • Anna: We don't even know each other.

    James: Why do you invite me here?

    Anna: I don't know. I thought you might be interesting.

    James: I'm not?

    Anna: Not to me. I know you too well.

  • Erik: 450 square meters is too big. The difference between living together and not is that you can feel, see and hear each other.

    Anna: Or perhaps living in a small place makes you small-minded

  • Wanda: Do you have sinful thoughts sometimes?

    Anna: Yes.

    Wanda: About carnal love?

  • Anna: You're hurting me.

  • Anna: What happened to me was not my fault. There's no way I could have behaved any differently, you now... What I did wasn't my fault. What happended to me wasn't my fault, and I can't be held accountable for it. There is no way I could ever have said to him 'Go away'.I couldn't do it... It was a mistake. And... I'm sorry. But I want to be with you. I want to be with you. Yes, I do. And I want to get married, and... I wanna have a good life, and I wanna be happy. That's all I want - peace.

  • Anna: You know I loved Sean so much, and its been so long that I still can't get him out of my system. This is going to sound a little strange but I've met someone, who seems to be Sean.

  • Anna: You certainly had me fooled. I thought you were my dead husband... but you're just a little boy in my bathtub.

  • Anna: What are you doing?

    Young Sean: I'm looking at my wife.

  • Anna: I'm not a sociopath, but I'm smart enough to think like one.

  • Professor Quadri: Clerici, you had me convinced you were the typical new Italian.

    Marcello: No such type exists yet, but we're creating him.

    Anna: Through repression?

    Marcello: No, through example.

    Anna: Giving him castor oil? Throwing him into prison? By torturing them? Blackmailing?

    Professor Quadri: Anna, please, dear, calm down. Clerici is a fascist. I'm an anti-fascist. We both knew. And we decided to have supper together all the same.

  • Anna: [to Marcello] You're only a worm. You revolt me. You're disgusting!

  • Anna: [reads from a book] In 1857, it's estimated there were 80,000 prostitutes in the county of London.

    Mike: Yeah?

    Anna: Out of every 60 houses, one was a brothel.

    Mike: Hoo, hoo, hoo.

    Anna: At a time when the male population of London of all ages was one and a quarter million, the prostitutes were receiving clients at a rate of two million per week.

    Mike: Two million?

  • Anna: [reading Agnes' journal entry] "Wednesday, the third of September. A chill in the air tells of autumn's approach, but the days are still lovely and mild. My sisters, Karin and Maria, have come to see me. It's wonderful to be together again like in the old days. I'm feeling much better. We were even able to take a stroll together. It was a wonderful experience, especially for me, since I haven't been outdoors for so long. We suddenly began to laugh and run toward the old swing that we hadn't used since we were children. We sat in it like three good little sisters and Anna pushed us, slowly and gently. All my aches and pains were gone. The people I'm most fond of in all the world were with me. I could hear them chatting around me. I could feel the presence of their bodies, the warmth of their hands. I wanted to cling to that moment, and I thought, "Come what may, this is happiness. I cannot wish for anything better. Now, for a few minutes, I can experience perfection and I feel profoundly grateful to my life, which gives me so much."

  • Karin: Anna. You hear that?

    Anna: I hear only the wind and the ticking of the clocks.

    Karin: No. It's something else.

    Anna: I don't hear anything else.

    Karin: I'm freezing. Good night.

  • Anna: Can't you hear that? Someone's crying. Can't you hear it? Someone's crying and crying.

  • Agnes: Can't anyone help me?

    Anna: It's just a dream, Agnes.

    Agnes: No, it's not a dream. Perhaps it's a dream for you, but not for me.

  • Anna: All the dirt has been washed off. I'm going to be clean again. I promise you. I'm coming home to you. Everything will begin again. I'm coming. Now.

  • Ester: What have I done to deserve this?

    Anna: Nothing in particular. It's just that you always harp on your principles and drone on about how important everything is. But it's all just hot air. You know why? I'll tell you. Everything centers around your ego. You can't live without feeling superior. That's the truth. Everything has to be desperately important and meaningful... and goodness knows what.

    Ester: How else are we to live?

    Anna: I used to think you were right. I tried to be like you, because I admired you. I didn't realize you disliked me.

    Ester: That's not true.

    Anna: Oh, yes, it is. You always have. I just never realized it before.

    Ester: No.

    Anna: Yes. And in some way you're afraid of me

    Ester: I'm not afraid of you. I love you.

    Anna: You always talk a lot about love.

    Ester: You can't say...

    Anna: What can't I say? That Ester feels hatred? That's just a silly idea of mine, right? You hate me, just like you hate yourself. Me, and everything that's mine. You're full of hate.

    Ester: That's not true.

    Anna: With all your education and all the fancy books you've translated, can you answer me one thing? When Father died, you said, "I don't want to go on living." So, why are you still around? Is it for my sake? For Johan's? For your work, perhaps? Or for no reasoning particular?

    Ester: It's not like you say. I'm sure you've got it all wrong.

    Anna: Don't use that tone of voice! Get out! Leave me alone!

    Ester: Poor Anna!

    Anna: Why don't you shut up?

    Ester: [smiling and caressing Anna] Poor Anna!

    [leaves the room]

  • Anna: An angel told you this? That you will bear the son of God? Mary...

    Mary: Elizabeth had a baby, even in her old age.

    Joaquim: Elizabeth has a husband!

    Anna: Women have been put to death for this. They could stone you in the streets.

    Mary: Father, I have broken no vow.

    Joaquim: You have broken every vow, Mary! Was it one of those soldiers? Was it?

    Mary: I have told the truth. Whether you believe it is your choice, not mine.

  • Laurel: Barratry.

    Anna: Barratry?

    Laurel: Arson, at sea.

  • Anna: They say five have left already.

    Miss Madrigal: Really?

    Anna: There must be something terribly frightening in this house!

    Laurel: That sounds like a perfect description of me!

  • [first lines]

    Anna: Excuse me. Would Mrs. St. Maugham live here?

    Maitland: She would.

    Anna: [pointing to the newspaper in her hand] I'm sorry, I came in answer to the advertisement.

    Maitland: There's no need to be sorry... at least not yet. Come in please.

    Anna: [entering the house] Ooh, goodness me, it's very grand, isn't it.

    Maitland: Built like a fort. It has to be.

    Anna: [grabbing Maitland's arm] Pardon me, but are there many others?

    Maitland: You're number six.

    Anna: [shocked] So many?

    Maitland: Numbers one to five have already left... or rather fled.

    Anna: [nervously] Ooh dear, but Mistress must be very hard to please.

    Maitland: True. But in fairness, the other ladies didn't really want the job.

    Anna: Why not?

    Maitland: Because, uh, let us say that this is a nervous age.

    Anna: [worriedly] Oh.

  • [The last time they meet]

    Anna: I never did get that red dress.

    Jan Kubis: And I never saw that football match.

  • [Discussing the plan to assassinate Heydrich]

    Janak: What do you think, Jan?

    Jan Kubis: [pointing to a map] : There's only one place - here. We kill him there as he comes around Holesovice Junction.

    Anna: But he's heavily guarded all the time!

    Jan Kubis: He slows down!

  • Jan Kubis: If it was peacetime, suddenly, now...what would you do?

    Anna: I'd go out and buy a dress. A bright, red dress made of silk.

    Jan Kubis: I'd see a good football match. Maybe get drunk afterwards.

  • Anna: Come on, I had a good time. Really. We saw a movie!

    Joel Garcia: A bad, bad, bad, bad, bad movie.

    Anna: Well, the dinner was... pretty bad too. Yeah. The whole day kind of sucked, didn't it?

  • Anna: Stop him! We haven't taught him how to make a spreadsheet yet!

  • Joe Mitcham: Don't look now, but Charley baby's gonna call the fuzz.

    Anna: Oh, wow!

  • Anna: All you ever gave me was a tepid lemonade!

  • Anna: You know what happens if we don't play by the rules.

  • Anna: The games can be won.

  • Anna: I miss you.

  • Anna: What if my party guests show up?

    Clark: Anna, I don't know if you know this, but there is some seriously insane shit going on out there right now. People are losing their minds.

    [Clark goes to turn off the TV]

    Clark: There's a bad sector in the electromagnetic spectrum which is causing a rift in logical thinking. Rational behavior has given way to primal... primordial action.

    [Anna sees someone on fire outside]

    Clark: We've reached a critical juncture in the consistency of everyday living. Societal norms are being completely abandoned. Anarchy has replaced etiquette. Chaos is the ruling class of this civilization, so I think coming to a goddamn New Years Eve party is the last thing on people's minds!

    [doorbell rings]

  • Ken: I'm going to turn our program on.

    Anna: Sounds glorious. How many more balloons do you think we need?

    Ken: At least seven.

    Anna: That's how many I was thinking.

    Ken: Well, that's why you married me!

  • Lewis Denton: The TV must've gotten into his head and told him to kill you.

    Anna: Yeah, that's what happened to Ken. He was watching TV and it made him go bad.

    [two people run from a man chasing them with a chainsaw in the background]

    Clark: This is without a doubt the most fucked up day in the history of mankind. We should go back inside.

    Anna: [cheerful] Who wants cocktails?

  • Anna: Are you mad at me for killing your friend?

    Clark: What?

    Anna: I know he's your friend and all.

    Clark: We weren't that close.

  • Lewis Denton: What do you have here?

    Clark: [nervously] Ken... napping.

    Lewis Denton: He looks dead.

    Anna: He is.

    Lewis Denton: I see.

  • Clark: It was self defense.

    Anna: You chopped his head off!

    Lewis Denton: He had it coming... probably. These are wild times. Everybody's been driven to desperate measures. I guess this happens to everybody.

  • Anna: Clark killed somebody too.

    Clark: I did not... I did.

  • [doorbell rings]

    Anna: [cheerful] Party guests!

    Clark: [holding bloody shovel] Act natural.

  • Lewis Denton: What do you have here?

    Clark: [whimper] it's Ken... napping.

    Lewis Denton: He looks dead.

    Anna: He is.

    Lewis Denton: I see. Who did this?

    Anna: I did. I didn't want to!

    Lewis Denton: You killed him?

    Anna: Well, Clark killed somebody too!

    Clark: I did no- I did... but it was self-defense!

    [cut to Clark's apartment with the three looking down at Rod's dead body]

    Anna: You chopped his head off!

    Lewis Denton: He had it coming... probably. These are wild times.

  • Anna: [doorbell rings] Party guests!

    Clark: Act natural.

    [Anna and Lewis line up behind Clark at the door with weapons ready]

    Laura: You gotta help me! My mom is trying to kill me and so I ran over her in the car and my dad was in the house and he made the dog die because he tried to bite me and I left in the car and I didn't know where to go and I remembered that Anna and Ken lived here and I'm Laura.

    Anna: Laura!

    Laura: Anna!

    [Laura pushes her way into the apartment past Clark]

    Clark: [Lewis smacks Laura in the head with the pesticide can, knocking her down] What the Fuck?

    [Lewis continues to beat Laura to death]

    Anna: You killed Laura!

    Lewis Denton: She was coming at you!

    Anna: Stay away from me! You killed Laura!

    Lewis Denton: She was heading straight for you with that knife!

    Anna: She doesn't have a knife!

    Clark: That's a keychain...

  • Anna: [doorbell rings] Party guests!

    Clark: Act natural.

    [Anna and Lewis line up behind Clark at the door with weapons ready]

    Janice: You gotta help me! My mom is trying to kill me and so I ran over her in the car and my dad was in the house and he made the dog die because he tried to bite me and I left in the car and I didn't know where to go and I remembered that Anna and Ken lived here and I'm Laura.

    Anna: Laura!

    Janice: Anna!

    [Laura pushes her way into the apartment past Clark]

    Clark: [Lewis smacks Laura in the head with the pesticide can, knocking her down] What the Fuck?

    [Lewis continues to beat Laura to death]

    Anna: You killed Laura!

    Lewis Denton: She was coming at you!

    Anna: Stay away from me! You killed Laura!

    Lewis Denton: She was heading straight for you with that knife!

    Anna: She doesn't have a knife!

    Clark: That's a keychain...

  • [Patricia takes a sip of water; Mrs. Trefoile notices the glass]

    Mrs. Trefoile: Anna! Come here at once!

    Anna: Yes, Mrs. Trefoile?

    Mrs. Trefoile: You have not washed up properly! There is a mark on Ms. Carroll's glass.

    Pat Carroll: Oh, it's just, it's just my lipstick, Mrs. Trefoile. It will come off, even though they guarantee.

    Mrs. Trefoile: Go upstairs and wash it off immediately!

    Pat Carroll: Mrs. Trefoile, I'm, I'm sorry, I...

    Mrs. Trefoile: Go and remove that FILTH at once!

  • Anna: Men fall in love. They don't stay in love.

  • Anna: I suspect that the less you know about me, the longer you'll stay interested.

  • Anna: You're very compulsive.

    Sam: Actually, I'm committing suicide on the installment plan.

  • Anna: Two tickets for the ride of your life.

  • Anna: I don't want to get ahead of myself, but I believe in eternity.

  • Anna: I don't want to get ahead of myself... but I believe in eternity.

  • Anna: You think everyone's got an agenda.

    Andy Walker: And they don't?

    Anna: No. Things just happen.

  • Anna: I know you love me. That's the difference between us.

    Paul: How can you know I love you? How can you be sure?

    Anna: Before I followed you inside this hole, I lulled myself to sleep repeating "Paul loves me." I said it out loud hundreds of times, like a prayer. Meaningless words. We hardly knew each other. But something came about, something established. I believed you loved me. I had faith in your love. This belief never left me. We can pray to be loved by only one person. It's not the worst way to save a soul. You never prayed for my love. You never needed my love.

  • Paul: So we're out of love?

    Anna: Yes, Paul, we are.

  • Anna: Are you an actor?

    Sal: Er no I deliver pizzas.

    Anna: Oh beca-cause nobody out here does what they do so I thought maybe it was the same for you.

  • Anna: Cheated on you.

    Harry: I beg your pardon?

    Anna: With the pizza boy

    [corrects herself]

    Anna: man. He's still here actually.

  • Anna: Is it a choice or a decision?

  • Anna: Oh, look if you didn't love me we'd still have a chance. But you do, you really do and that didn't stop you! Did it? I've always known Harry. I've always known but I was just hoping you didn't love me. But you do and that's terrible.

  • Anna: No, no it's not a decision. It's a choice.

    Harry: What is the difference?

    Anna: I'm making it.

  • Anna: Oh, that naughty champagne! The things it made me do. What you must think of me!

    Charles Breitkopf: I think you like me.

    Anna: Yes, but that champagne!

    Charles Breitkopf: What about it? When two young people like each other, there's no need to drug the champagne, I assure you.

    Anna: I was only saying that. We all have our pride. I'm a bit ashamed.

  • Anna: Will I see you soon?

    Charles Breitkopf: I don't live in Vienna. I just visit from time to time.

    Anna: I bet you're married. When a man says he doesn't live in Vienna, he's usually married.

    Charles Breitkopf: And you wouldn't feel guilty about seducing a married man?

    Anna: Not at all. I imagine his wife would be off doing the same.

  • Anna: Couldn't you talk like everyone else?

    Robert Kuhlenkampf: I've never tried.

  • Robert Kuhlenkampf: I can't see you at all. Are you blonde or brunette?

    Anna: You should have written it down.

    Robert Kuhlenkampf: That's incredibly profound! In one phrase you sum up the whole tragedy of desire.

  • Anna: For you I think love must be something...

    Robert Kuhlenkampf: Yes?

    Anna: Something...

    Robert Kuhlenkampf: Intangible. Take off your dress.

    Anna: Robert!

    Robert Kuhlenkampf: Take it off! Night envelops us in her veil of stars. She's spread the Milky Way at our feet. A thousand stars sparkle before us. Take it off!

    Anna: But I'm cold.

    Robert Kuhlenkampf: Night reveals 20, 30, 50 suns hidden by the light of day. Imagine we're in the Indies, in a mysterious palace. Take off your slip. The nights are hot. The humid night air surrounds us. Take off your slip.

    Anna: Do you love me?

  • Robert Kuhlenkampf: Let's go away, shall we?

    Anna: Go away?

    Robert Kuhlenkampf: For three months - or three weeks.

    Anna: What about your lawyer? And my mother?

    Robert Kuhlenkampf: They'll console each other. We'll live naked in the forest, drink from babbling brooks, eat nature's golden fruit, and then say farewell.

    Anna: Why? I thought...

    Robert Kuhlenkampf: There is no true love without farewells. Kiss me.

  • Anna: There must be something in the champagne. My head is spinning.

    [Lays down on a couch]

    Anna: Oh, what will happen if I can't get up?

    Charles Breitkopf: I adore you.

  • [last lines]

    Anna: What the fuck?

  • [first lines]

    [recording on answering machine]

    Anna: You've reached 627-2363. After you hear the tone, leave your name and any message; I'll call you back.

  • Anna: Back east I read books about men taming the wilderness. I dreamed about those men. They weren't like you. They weren't like you, they were statues that people could look up to. The only resemblance you bear to a statue is pigeon droppings.

    Travis: There may be hope for you yet.

    Anna: No, Travis, you're the one there's no hope for. After you're dead, me and my kind will still be here, and everything will be ours. You're like those prehistoric beasts that become extinct. Oh, they'll still write nice stories about your kind, you'll be a hero and all that. But most of all you'll be dead.

  • Anna: Don't think you're gonna win this little game of yours, because I am a much better player than you are.
