Number 22 in the '50 Films To See Before You Die Challenge.'
I just love Gerard Butler in this.
Holly Kennedy: What if this is it, Gerry? What if this is all there is to our life? You have to have a plan. Why do I have to be the responsible grown up who worries? Why can't I be the cute, carefree Irish guy who sings all the time?
Gerry Kennedy: Because you can't sing without making dogs bark?
Gerry Kennedy: Kiss me arse!
Holly Kennedy: Kiss mine! In English!
Sharon McCarthy: You gotta be rich to be insane, Hol. Losing your mind is not a luxury for the middle class.
Gerry Kennedy: [holding Holly by the shoulders] What do you want? I know what I want, cause I'm holding it in my hands.
Holly Kennedy: All I know is, if you don't figure out this something, you'll just stay ordinary, and it doesn't matter if its a work of art or a taco, or a pair of socks! Just create something... new, and there it is, and its you, out in the world, out side of you and you can look at it, or hear it, or read it, or feel it... and you know a little more about... you. A little bit more than anyone else does... Does that make any sense at all?
Gerry Kennedy: Yeah... you're saying you want to paint socks.
Holly Kennedy: [ecstatic] Maybe!
Holly Kennedy: That's a real honest to goodness couple right there. They've probably been together since the flood.
Daniel Connelly: We're so arrogant, aren't we? So afraid of age, we do everything we can to prevent it. We don't realize what a privilege it is to grow old with someone. Someone who doesn't drive you to commit murder or doesn't humiliate you beyond repair.
Holly Kennedy: I left without saying anything. He must think I'm an idiot.
Denise Hennessey: Well, you're an American. They expect us to be idiots.
Holly Kennedy: Oh, never mind. I'm just screwed up. I'm trouble... yeah.
William: I like trouble.
Holly Kennedy: Oh no, I don't mean "cool Pulp Fiction" trouble. I mean "mental case wacko" trouble.
Sharon McCarthy: [Convincing Holly to go talk to William] Plus you're an American. You've got the foreign exotic stuff going for you.
Holly Kennedy: Oh there is nothing exotic about being an American.
Sharon McCarthy: Well he doesn't know that!
