Just some interesting thoughts from watching the tail end of "As Good As It Gets"....
Hunt: "Have you ever let a romantic moment make you do something that you knew was stupid?"
Oh YA! Well maybe it wasn't stupid totally? Well, it didn't have to be...dang I'd still do it again...now is that stupid? HA!
Nicholson: "You make me want to be a better man."
Ahhh isn't that what love is about. To see the potential in someone & because someone believes in you, you feel like you can obtain that potential! Hmmm
Nicholson: "I might be the only person on the face of the earth that knows you're the greatest woman on earth. I might be the only one who appreciates how amazing you are in every single thing that you do, and how you are with Spencer, "Spence," and in every single thought that you have, and how you say what you mean, and how you almost always mean something that's all about being straight and good. I think most people miss that about you, and I watch them, wondering how they can watch you bring their food, and clear their tables and never get that they just met the greatest woman alive. And the fact that I get it makes me feel good, about me."
To see someone as noone else seem them...Wow!
Kinear to Nicholson: "The best thing you have going for you is your willingness to humiliate yourself." In reference to not waiting to let things cool off but to go see Hunt NOW! :-)
Nicholson: "I can't get back to my old life. She's evicted me from my life!"
Kinear: "Did you really like it all that much?"
I love this line. No matter what happens we are not the same but that is not necessarily a bad thing!
Hunt: "To hell with sex! It was better thansex! We held each other! What I needed, he gave me great."
Do you know what he/she needs? FIND OUT!!!
This remind me of that line in "Runaway Bride" when she asks him why he got a divorce & he doesn't know & doesn't realize he doesn't know why....then later realizes he just didn't see his wife.
Also love this one: "I guarantee that we'll have tough times and I guarantee that at some point one or both of us will want to get out. But I also guarantee that if I don't ask you to be mine, I'll regret it for the rest of my life cause I know in my heart you're the only one for me."
Side note: I think Gere will still be making me drool when he is 100 yrs old! HA!
Ok back to where I was...
Hunt: "Why can't I have a normal boyfriend? Just a regular boyfriend, one that doesn't go nuts on me!"
Hunt's Mom: "Everybody wants that, dear. It doesn't exist."
I love this! Very true! Who the heck is normal?
Kinear to Nicholson: "Melvin, do you know where you're lucky? You know who you want."
Ahhh but how many still do not go after what they want! Risk it all????!!! Sad!
Hunt: "I'm not going to sleep with you! I will never sleep with you, never, ever! Not ever!"
Nicholson: "Well, I'm sorry, but... we don't open for the "no sex oaths" until 9am."
I just love that one! HA!
Nicholson: "Seeing you relaxes me. I'd feel better sitting ouside your apartment on the curb than any other place I can think of or imagine."
The "Home" feeling! "Safe" is another word I think.
I think of "Wedding Date" also...
Mulroney: "I'd rather fight with you than make love with anyone else."
Mulroney: " Close your eyes. Close your eyes. Close... your... eyes. You're safe. You can relax. I'm not going to kiss you. He's gonna be so sorry he lost you, so stop worrying. Forget the past. Forget the pain. And remember what an incredible woman you are. You do that and he'll realize what he lost. "
Messing: "Holy crap. You're worth every penny."
When is the last time your told your mate something like that?!
Mulroney: "The hardest thing is loving someone and then having the courage to let them love you back."
Ya, that can be tough.
Messing: "You know what pisses me off? I've been spilling my guts all weekend and I don't know a thing about you. "
Mulroney: [pause] "I'm allergic to fabric softener. I majored in comparative literature at Brown. I hate anchovies. And I think I'd miss you even if we never met."
Talk about melting! Who wrote this script???
I know I'm just in a mushy mood as I head off to dreamland...maybe I'll have a good dream? ;-)
Of course I also like...
Messing's Friend: "Ooooh! Where the bloody hell have you been? I have gynecologists that call more often."
Messing: "You have more than one gynecologist?"
Messing's Friend: "You have to play them off. Otherwise they think your easy."
HA! Too funny...had to lighten it up! :-)
