About Me

Favorite Quotes:
"I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn't a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time... For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars... And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined our street... Or my grandmother's hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper... And the first time I saw my cousin Tony's brand new Firebird... And Janie... And Janie... And... Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me... but it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life... You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry... you will someday."
-Lester Burnham, American Beauty

Carolyn Burnham: "Well, I see you're smoking pot now. I think using psychotropic drugs is a very positive example to set for our daughter."
Lester Burnham: "You're one to talk, you bloodless, money-grubbing freak."
-American Beauty

Colonel Frank Fitts: "Where's your wife?"
Lester Burnham: "Uh, I dunno. Probably out fucking that dorky, prince-of-real-estate asshole. And you know what? I don't care."
Colonel Frank Fitts: "Your wife is with another man and you don't care?"
Lester Burnham: "Nope. Our marriage is just for show. A commercial for how normal we are when we're anything but."
-American Beauty

Carolyn Burnham: "This is a $4,000 sofa, upholstered in Italian silk. It is not just a couch."
Lester Burnham: [shouts] "It's just a fucking couch!"
-American Beauty (My doctrine against materialism)

"It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in."
-Ricky Fitts, American Beauty

"Look at me, jerking off in the shower... This will be the high point of my day; it's all downhill from here."
-Lester Burnham, American Beauty

Lester Burnham: "Then I guess I'll have to throw in a sexual harassment charge."
Brad Dupree: [Laughs] "Against who?"
Lester Burnham: "Against YOU. Can you prove that you didn't offer to save my job if I let you blow me?"
Brad Dupree: "Man, you are one twisted fuck."
Lester Burnham: "Nope; I'm just an ordinary guy who has nothing left to lose."

Dr. Grant: "I have a theory that there are two kinds of boys. There are those that want to be astronomers, and those that want to be astronauts. The astronomer, or the paleontologist, gets to study these amazing things from a place of complete safety."
Erik: "But then you never get to go into space."
Dr. Grant: "Exactly. That's the difference between imagining and seeing: to be able to touch them."
-Jurassic Park III

Karen Pommeroy: "This could be the death of an entire way of life, the end of an era..."
Donnie: "Why should we care?"
Karen Pommeroy: "Because the rabbits are us, Donnie."
Donnie: "Why should I mourn for a rabbit like he was human?"
Karen Pommeroy: "Are you saying that the death of one species is less tragic than another?"
Donnie: Of course. The rabbit's not like us. It has no... keen look at something in the mirror, it has no history books, no photographs, no knowledge of sorrow or regret... I mean, I'm sorry, Miss Pommeroy, don't get me wrong; y'know, I like rabbits and all. They're cute and they're horny. And if you're cute and you're horny, then you're probably happy, in that you don't know who you are and why you're even alive. And you just wanna' have sex, as many times as possible, before you die... I mean, I just don't see the point in crying over a dead rabbit! Y'know, who... who never even feared death to begin with."
-Donnie Darko

Donnie: "Why do you wear that stupid bunny suit?"
Frank: "Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?"
-Donnie Darko

"Every living creature on earth dies alone."
-Roberta Sparrow, Donnie Darko

Donnie: "You are such a fuckass."
Elizabeth: "Did you just call me a fuckass? You can go suck a fuck."
Donnie: "Oh, please, tell me Elizabeth, how exactly does one suck a fuck?"
-Donnie Darko

Donnie: "Life isn't that simple. I mean who cares if Ling Ling returns the wallet and keeps the money? It has nothing to do with either fear or love."
Kitty Farmer: "Fear and love are the deepest of human emotions."
Donnie: "Okay. But you're not listening to me. There are other things that need to be taken into account here. Like the whole spectrum of human emotion. You can't just lump everything into these two categories and then just deny everything else!"
-Donnie Darko

I'll add more as I think of them. Everyone watch American Beauty. Do it. Seriously.
