– I’m glad that you’ve asked me.


Meet Joe Black

M: That’s the way it is with men and women, isn’t it.
W: What’s the way?
M: Nothing lasts.
W: I agree.
M: Why?
M: I am interested.
W: I was just trying to be agreeable.

M: If I need a doctor, you could be it.
W: Yes, I could be her.
M: This is my lucky day. I just get in the big, bad city. Not only do I find a doctor but a beautiful woman as well.
M: Do you mind me saying that.
W: Oh no, of course. No, it’s fine. It’s fine, it’s just…
M: (chuckling). Listen, could I buy you a cup of coffee?
W: I have some patients coming in, so I should probably get going..
M: Yeah, yeah, I gotta get to the apartment and get off to work.
W: Yeah.
M: But I’d still like to have another cup of coffee.
W: Um–
M: Would you let me do that?
W: Well, yeah, okay.
M: Deal.

W: I’ve gotta to go.
M: Listen. Did I say something wrong.
W: No. No. It was, it was so right, it scares me.
M: You know, I was thinking I don’t want you to be my doctor. I don’t want you to examine me.
W: Why?
M: Because I like you so much.
W: I don’t want to examine you.
M: Why?
W: Because I like you so much.
W: Oh, boy. Oh. Now I gotta to go.
M: Yep, Understood. Fair enough. See ya.

Bill: Cause if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived.

M: Talk to me.
D: There’s gonna to be plenty time of that.

M: I don’t think they are Ordinary . I think they are great. I love keychain.

Bill: I said, anyone here?
Joe: Quiet down.

Bill: What’s this? Is this a joke? Some kind of elaborate practical joke ?

Joe: The great Parrish at a loss for words . The man from whose lips fall “rapture” and “passion” and “obsession”. All those admonitions about being deliriously happy, and there is no sense living your life without. All the sparks and energy you give off , the rosy advice you dispense in round pear-shaped tones.
Bill: Who are you?
Joe: Just think of millenniums myltiplied by eons compounded by the time without end. I’ve been around that long. But it’s only recently that your affairs here have piqued my interest(similar use: pique my curiosity).Call it boredom . The natural curiosity of me, the most lasting and significant element in existence , has come to see you.

Joe: The question that is in the back of you throat, choking the blood to your brain. ringing in your ears over and over again as you put it yourself.

Joe: Joe sounds like a ringer, Bill.

Susan: What are you doing her?
Susan Cat got your tongue. You wasn’t so silent this morning.
Joe: I was quite myself.
Susan It’s a shame that whoever you were couldn’t be here tonight.

Joe: Do you like Drew?
Susan: Excuse me?
Joe: When you put your mouth to his, it seems a frequent thing.
Susan: Drew is none of your business and neither is where I put my mouth.
Joe: I am sorry. Do you live here?
Susan: No, I don’t live here. I am swimming here and now I am going home.
Joe: Yes, What I am trying to say is that I would like it if we were friends.
Susan: I’ve got plenty of friend.
Joe: I don’t have any.
Susan: Well, I can see why.
Joe: I didn’t mean to offend you at dinner. But sometimes I am not quite at home around people. I get busy doing, uh, what it is I do. I don’t seem to have developed..
Susan: Yes?
Joe: I have a certain function to perform and it seems to take up most of my time. But sometimes I .. speculate .. that I haven’t left room for anything else.
Susan: Hmm. I am sorry to say I know what you mean.
Susan: Good night, Joe.
Joe: Good night to you, Susan.

M: I have this weak fealing in my knee…
W: And is your heart beating strangely?
M: Yes, faster. The taste of your lips and the touch of your tongue that was wonderful

(after Making love)
W: What do we do now?
M: It’ll come to us.

Bill: What’s going on, mm. I saw you kiss Susan.
Joe: Yes, I saw you see me.
Bill: You are at the wrong place, at the wrong time with the wrong woman.
Joe: I’ll be the judge of that.
Bill: I am her father.
Joe: With all due respect,Bill. I am not asking your permission.
Bill: You goddamn well should!
Bill: You walk into my life. You give me the worse news a guy can get. You are dancing on the heads of pins of my business, my family. Now you’re spooning with my daughter.
Joe: “Spooning”?
Bill: Yes. Stop repeating everything I said and turning it into a question. Spooning, fooling around. God knows what. Oh, you arrive on the scene–. Why your picked me? I still don’t understand.
Joe: I choose you for your verve ,your excellence and your ability to instruct. You’ve lived a first rate life and I find it eminently usable.

Hello, Sleepless in Seattle.

M: Hello, Victoria. This is Sam Boldwin. I don’t if you remember mem but … I was wondering if you would like to have a drink with me. Dinner?.. Dinner would be even better…. Friday would be great. I hear that’s a good place. … 7:3-0 would be fine… So it’s Friday at 7:30 for dinner. I will meet you there.


Rick: Here’s looking at you kid .
Llsa: : I wish I didn’t love you so much.
Rick: Inside we both know that you belong to Victor. You’re part of his work and the thing keeps him going . When the plane leaves the ground and you are not with him, you will regret it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, for the rest of your life.
Llsa: What about us?
Rick: We’ll always have Paris. We didn’t have it. We’d lost it until you came to Casablanca. We got it back last night.
Llsa: When I said I would never leave you.
Rick: And you never will. I have a job to do too. Where I am going, you cannot follow. What I got to do, you cannot be any part of. IIls, I am not going be noble. But It doesn’t take much to see the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you will understand that.
Rick: “Here’s looking at you kid*

M: Roundup the usual suspects.
Rick: I think this is a beginning of a beautiful friendship.
