Fun Stuff

From Poltergeist (2015)
Amy Bowen: Do you have kids, Mr. Burke?
Carrigan Burke: Sadly, no. My wife didn't think it was a good idea given our line of work.
Dr. Brooke Powell: It wasn't just the work.
Amy Bowen: Oh! The two of you were...
Dr. Brooke Powell: Briefly.
Carrigan Burke: We were young and stupid.
Dr. Brooke Powell: Only one of us was stupid.
Carrigan Burke: Ah, don't be so hard on yourself. I was irresistible back then.
Dr. Brooke Powell: I'm gonna check the readings upstairs.
Carrigan Burke: And she goes, just like she fled our marriage. Straight into the arms of academia. Safe, stable academia. Still misses me, though.
