We're not playing "Spin the Bottle." How old are we? More importantly, how old are they?


OK, so, sometimes I lie. I mean I'm weird, man, about random stuff too. I don't even know why I do it. It's like... it's like a tick. I mean sometimes I hear myself say something and think, "Wow, that wasn't even remotely true".

Andrew Largeman: ****, this hurts so much.
Sam: I know it hurts. But it's life, and it's real. And sometimes it ****ing hurts, but it's life, and it's pretty much all we got.

Andrew Largeman: You know that point in your life when you realize that the house that you grew up in isn't really your home anymore? All of the sudden even though you have some place where you can put your shit that idea of home is gone.
Sam: I still feel at home in my house.
Andrew Largeman: You'll see when you move out. It just sort of happens one day, one day and it's just gone. And you can never get it back. It's like you get homesick for a place that doesn't exist. I don't know maybe it's like this right of passage, you know. You won't have this feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself, you know, for you kids, for the family you start. It's like a cycle or something. I miss the idea of it. Maybe that's all family really is. A group of people who miss the same imaginary place.

Andrew Largeman: I think we've corrupted this innocent girl enough for one day!
Sam: I'm not innocent.
Andrew Largeman: Yes, you are. That's what I like about you, okay? And I don't want this guy taking you to some sketchy quarry in the middle of Newark to find crack whores huffing turpentine or pit bulls raping each other, or whatever else is down here!
Mark: Man, that's the most worked up I've ever seen you.
Sam: He's protecting me.
Andrew Largeman: So?
Sam: He likes me!
Andrew Largeman: Don't be cute.
Sam: He's my knight in shining armor.
Andrew Largeman: Don't talk about knights around Mark. it's a sore subject.
Mark: I'm gonna kill that mother****er.
Andrew Largeman: Pun intended?

Andrew Largeman: Hey Albert
Albert: Yeah?
Andrew Largeman: Good luck exploring the infinite abyss.
Albert: Thank you, and Hey, you too .

You know, this necklace makes me think of this totally random memory of my mother. I was a little kid, and I was crying for whatever reason, and she was cradling me, rocking me back and forth, and I can just remember the silver balls floating around. And there was, like, snot running down my nose, right?. And she offered me her sleeve - and told me to blow my nose into it. And I can remember, even as a little kid, thinking to myself: This is love...this is love.

This is my life, Dad. This is it. I've spent 26 years waiting for something else to start. So, no, I don't think it's too much to take on, because it's everything there is. I see now it's all of it. You and I are gonna be okay. You know that, right? We may not be as happy as you always dreamed we would be, but for the first time let's just allow ourselves to be whatever it is we are, and that will be better, okay? I think that will be better.

My mom just died. God, it's weird to say it out loud. But, my mom just died.

You changed my life. You changed my life, and I've known you four days. This is the beginning of something really big, but right now, I gotta go.

You know that point in your life when you realize that the house you grew up in isn't really your home anymore...all of the sudden even though you have some place to put your shit, that idea of home is gone...or maybe it's like this rite of passage...you will never have that feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself, for your kids, for the family you start. It's like a cycle or something. Maybe that's all family really is: a group of people that miss the same imaginary place.

I was nine, and someone made a shitty latch.

You gotta hear this one song. It'll change your life, I swear. [Famous line referring to the song "New Slang" by The Shins]
