Benjamin Braddock quotes

Mrs. Robinson, this is the sickest, most perverted thing that ever happened to me.

[to Mrs. Robinson] Look, I like you. I wouldn't keep coming here if I didn't like you...I enjoy it. I look forward to it. It's the one thing I have to look forward to...All right, I promise, for Christ's sake, I promise never to take out Elaine Robinson...Let's not talk about it. Let's not talk at all.

[to Elaine, at a burlesque show] You're missing a great effect here. How'd you like that? Could you do it?

[to Elaine] That's why I've been acting this way. I'm not like this. I hate myself like this. Listen, could you just stop crying, please?...I've had this feeling ever since I graduated. This kind of compulsion that I have to be rude all the time...It's like I was playing some kind of game, but the rules don't make any sense to me. They're being made up by all the wrong people. I mean no one makes them up. They seem to make themselves up.

Elaine, would you just tell me where he proposed to you? [shouting after her as she leaves the library] Oh God, it wasn't in his car, was it?
