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.
