Ilse Quotes in Aimee & Jaguar (1999)
Ilse: What does she have that I don't have?
Felice: Nothing, absolutely nothing. She isn't better or worse than any of us.
Ilse: How can you say that? How?
Ilse: Has she risked her life? Would she lie and steal and fight for you? Do you think she'd take risks my father takes? She has no idea what it's like listening to every idiot who comes up the stairs. But you know how it is, Felice. Your behaviour makes me sick!
Felice: [long beat] So send me a bill.
Ilse: [beat] I'm sorry.
Felice: What for? You're right.
Felice: "God created the world, Felice. You didn't" That's what my father always said to me. My sister, my mother... they all agreed "Felice is crazy". And do you know why? Because for me nothing can be taken for granted. No God. No car that picks me up, no Ilse to help me, and no "thank you" I have to tell her every day. You want something special, Ilse. And I'm not.
Felice: I'm ungrateful and desperate for admiration. Say whatever you like. But don't make me a victim, because it's my goddamned mediocre little right to be free.
Felice: As long as I can.
Ilse: It is not justice we need. Not anything as big as that. Just the right to exist, without being hurt, without doing hurt.
Lana: You're lying.
Ilse: I don't lie. I create reality.
Ilse: I see you've learned how to stand up for yourself. But this is beyond what I was thinking is... healthy.
Lana: I trusted you.
Ilse: Honey... I don't understand what happened to you. I have done nothing to harm you, and you know that, in your heart.
Lana: Did you hear a baby cry?
Lana: That is so strange. I heard it.
Ilse: That's when it started.
Ilse: I have patients I've been seeing for years and years. I'm all they have.
