Silver Quotes in Watership Down (1978)
Pipkin: [while all are digging in the rain] What's happening back home, I wonder? Think, when we lived in our own burrows? Dry, soft, warm bodies...
Dandelion: [to Hazel] Look, we can't go on like this.
Silver: It keeps getting worse and worse wherever we go. Where ARE we going?
Hazel: It won't be much longer, then we can all rest.
Silver: How MUCH longer?
Pipkin: We never should have left.
Blackberry: Suppose Fiver's all wrong?
Pipkin: We want to go back and find out.
Hazel: Go back? After all we've been through?
Bigwig: And probably get killed for wounding Captain Holly? An Owsla officer? Talk sense, for Frith's sake!
Bigwig: There's a dog loose in the woods!
Silver: Oh, that does it!
Sean: Silver, what do you think happens with people in porn?
Silver: What do you mean?
Sean: Just seems to mess people up.
Silver: Working at K-Mart messes people up. Working in Hollywood messes people up.
Sean: That's true.
Silver: It's an adult industry. Gotta be an adult to deal with it.
Silver: You know, when I was with Sondra, when everything was great at first.
Silver: but I kept on getting this feeling like she was so into herself. Even when we were having sex, I couldn't get any closer.
Sean: Well, some people are born distant.
Silver: It's the *distance* that gets you *hooked.* After a while, it takes its *toll.*
Silver: I've been watching you with him.
Silver: There's nothing to tell you that you don't already know. A: he's a porn star, B: he's straight.
Sean: No he isn't.
Silver: Sean, just because someone does gay sex doesn't mean they're gay.
Sean: What does it mean then?
Silver: Absolutely nothing. You just go through with it. Women understand that from the get-go.
Sean: Well, he's different with me.
Silver: What, because of this fluffing thing?
Sean: Well, if he's so straight, then why does he need a boy to get him hard?
Silver: Who knows? All that matters is that, in his mind, he's a straight boy. You ain't never gonna change that.
Sean: And in my mind, I'll always be on my knees in front of him.
Silver: [sarcastically] Yeah, well, the two of you should be very happy together.
Sean: It's like I got this knotted piece of string running down the middle of me, and I try to untie it, I try, but I can't.
Silver: There's no such thing as a knot you can't untie.
Sean: Silver, isn't it weird for you working here? I mean, you like girls, right?
Silver: I'm into gay porn.
Sean: You are?
Silver: [affirmatively] Mmm.
Sean: How come?
Silver: I like watching penises. Besides, lesbian porn sucks! With all those long red fingernails? *Please.*
Silver: I'm in a "can't keep my hands off him" phase.
Cay: Did you invite me over to, ah, watch the show?
