Ben Calder Quotes in Chasing Liberty (2004)


Ben Calder Quotes:

  • Anna Foster: Ben. Can you ever just say what you really feel?

    Ben Calder: Okay, all right! Because I'm jealous as hell. Because I'd hate to see you with Gus Gus. I'd hate to see you with any other man. Because not only did I adore kissing you in Venice, but also because I'm so un-bloody-hinged just being near you.

  • Ben Calder: So if you're scared, why do it?

    Anna Foster: Because the things you're scared of are usually the most worthwhile.

  • Ben Calder: So, you got a little thing for me, huh?

    Anna Foster: No. Big thing.

  • Ben Calder: If I kiss you, do you think they'll shoot me?

    Anna Foster: No, but I will if you don't.

  • Ben Calder: Anna? Anna!

    Anna Foster: Ben! Come on! Venice awaits! Where have you been?

    Ben Calder: Just having a mild heart attack.

  • Anna Foster: I want to swim naked in the Danube!

    Ben Calder: Actually, it's the Vltava.

    Anna Foster: Who wants to swim naked in the Vltava? Nobody says that.

    Ben Calder: Because in English,Vltava means 'unhealthy bacteria level'.

    Anna Foster: Yeah, right.

    Ben Calder: Why can't you be free without being naked?

  • Ben Calder: What are you doing here?

    Anna Foster: I'm um, a big Puccini groupie.


    Anna Foster: I'm studying for a semester at Oxford.


    Anna Foster: I came to find you.

    Ben Calder: You did?

    Anna Foster: Yeah, I'm making the big gesture.

  • Anna Foster: I'm on fire! I'm untouchable! I'm Anna! Who are you?

    Ben Calder: Ben Calder, freelance getaway man. Yeah, need the hand, need the hand.

  • Anna Foster: As soon as this train stops, we're going to go our separate directions.

    McGruff: Hey, chilly-willy, Squabblers, take a few of these on your solo travels then.

    Ben Calder: What are these? Six-Million-Dollar Man stickers?

    McGruff: These stickers are my contribution to the global community. Everyone I meet gets a handful. Your job: post them up! Pound one on a door, slap one on a kiosk, place one on a postbox, wherever your life may lead you.

    Anna Foster: And then what?

    McGruff: Then, nothing. You forget about the sticker, you move on. One day, maybe you're a little down in the dregs, and all of a sudden, there it is! The corner of a window, the door of a subway, the side of a telephone booth, one of the stickers. And it puts a smile of your face because you know you are not alone in the world; we're all connected.

    Ben Calder: Wanker.

  • Anna Foster: Oh! Ben! I want to find passion!

    [runs into another couple]

    Ben Calder: Sorry about that. We're just um, looking for passion.

  • Ben Calder: [to Anna] Can you please stop taking your clothes off around me?

  • Anna Foster: You have a little thing for me, huh?

    Ben Calder: I'll stop you there. I do not have a thing for you, okay, little or otherwise.

    Anna Foster: Why did you get on the train with me to Berlin, then?


    Anna Foster: Mm-hmm.

    Ben Calder: Okay, you know what, you're right. I'm strangely attracted to exhibitionist runaways. It's an addiction, really. I was in a program for a while where we had to spend time with fully-clothed home-bodies, but I've relapsed, again.

  • Ben Calder: Romance is simply not a feasible option for me right now.
