Basic Instinct (1992)
[Nick just had rough sex with Beth]
Beth Garner: You've never been like that before. Why?
Nick: You tell me, you're the shrink.
Beth Garner: You weren't making love to me!
Nick: Well, who was I making love to?
Beth Garner: You weren't making love at all.

Beth Garner: [knocks on the door at Nick's apartment] Nick! Nick, are you there?
Nick: Go away, Beth! I don't want to see you.
Beth Garner: [unlocks the door and enters the apartment, finding Nick drinking] I still have my keys.
Nick: Put 'em on the table and leave.
[pause]
Nick: [shouts] Put 'em on the goddamn table and leave!
Beth Garner: [throws the keys on the floor] Damn it! Don't shut me out, you owe me more than that!
Nick: I don't owe you anything! And you don't owe me anything. We went to bed 10, maybe 15 times. That's miserable enough to carry an obligation.
Beth Garner: Sometimes I really hate you.
Nick: Oh, then why don't you get yourself some friendly little therapist and try to work out all that hostility. Then maybe you can get off once in a while.

Beth Garner: [Nick finds out that Beth and Catherine had slept together in college] What was I supposed to say? "Hey, guys, I'm not gay, but I did fuck your suspect"?

Nick: I'm working my ass off, I'm off the sauce, I even stopped smoking.
Beth Garner: How's not smoking?
Nick: It sucks.

Beth Garner: Sometimes I hate you.
Nick: Oh, why don't you get one of those friendly therapists and work out all that hostility.

Beth Garner: Something's going on. You're sleeping with her, aren't you?
Nick: Why are you interested in her?
Beth Garner: My interest is in you, not her. She seduces and manipulates people. She'll do anything she can.
Nick: I thought you hardly knew her?
Beth Garner: I know the type. I'm a psychologist.
Nick: That means... you manipulate people too! You're a practicing psychologist. You're better at it than she is!
