View Quote Harris: Ordinarily, I don't like to be around interesting people because it means I have to be interesting too.

View Quote Roland: Sara just got off a plane from London.
Trudi: Oh, you must be exhausted.

[Everyone stares]
Roland: You'll have to forgive Sara.

View Quote SanDeE: [after they get enemas together] So, what do you think?

View Quote Sara: And if I were to go?
Harris: All I know is, on the day your plane was to leave, if I had the power, I would turn the winds around, I would roll in the fog, I would bring in storms, I would change the polarity of the earth so compasses couldn't work, so your plane couldn't take off.
View Quote Sara: What did you have in mind?
Harris: Well, I was thinking of taking you on a cultural tour of L.A.

Sara: Why don't we walk?
Harris: Walk? A walk in L.A.?
View Quote Sara: Why didn't you tell me you had just broke up with someone?

View Quote [Admiring a painting] I like the relationships. I mean, each character has his own story. The puppy is a bit too much, but you have to over look things like that in these kinds of paintings. The way he's holding her... it's almost... filthy. I mean, he's about to kiss her and she's pulling away. The way the leg's sort of smashed up against her... Phew... Look how he's painted the blouse sort of translucent. You can just make out her breasts underneath and it's sort of touching him about here. It's really... pretty torrid, don't you think? Then of course you have the onlookers peeking at them from behind the doorway like they're all shocked. They wish. Yeah, I must admit, when I see a painting like this, I get emotionally... erect. [[the painting is revealed to be of a red rectangle]
