How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)
Andie: True or False: All's fair in love and war.
Ben: True.
Andie: Great answer.
Ben: Good question!

Andie: Our love fern! You let it die!
Ben: No, honey, it's just sleeping.

Ben: Let's take a break because the woman is driving me crazy.
Tony: Which woman? Andie or Princess Sophia?

Andie: Unattached?
Ben: Currently.
Andie: Likewise.
Ben: Surprising.
Andie: Psycho?
Ben: Rarely. Interested?
Andie: Perhaps.
Ben: Hungry?
Andie: Starving.
Ben: Leaving?
Andie: Now?

Andie: [thrusts herself onto Ben] Does Princess Sophia want to come out and play?
Ben: Who's Princess Sophia?
[Andie points at his crotch]
Ben: Nah-nah-nah, nah! Whoa, whoa, you're kidding me, right? Princess Sophia?
Andie: Little, big, little, big? I don't know. We will find out!
Ben: Alright listen, you can't name my... my member Princess Sophia.
Andie: Yes, I can!
Ben: Listen, if you are gonna name m... my member, alright, you gotta name it something hyper masculine, okay? Something like a Spike, a Butch, a Krull the Warrior King!

Thayer: That it?
Tony: That's it?
Ben: [points to purse on desk] That's it.
Tony: Have you looked inside?
Ben: No.
Thayer: Do you have an ethical problem with rifling through a woman's purse?
Ben: Uhh, yeah, I guess I do.
Tony: Well, it's hardly a purse, dude, it's more like a... clutch or something.
Ben: Guys, a woman's purse, alright, it's her secret source of power. Alright? There are many dark and dangerous things in there, that we, the male species, should know nothing about.

Ben: [to himself, on his balcony, waving goodbye to Andy before she gets in her cab] You're already falling in love with me.
Andie: I'm gonna make you wish you were dead.
[blows away a kiss to Ben up on his balcony]
Andie: Poor guy.

Thayer: Is she on something?
Ben: God I hope so.
[Moves his finger in circles next to his head, to indicate that he thinks Andie is crazy]
Andie: Are you saying I'm some kind of mental person?
[Andie is holding a platter of veggies and flings them at the guys and the middle of the poker table, then tosses the platter onto the table]

Ben: That's what I'm talking about. Where's the sexy, cool, fun, smart, beautiful Andie that I knew? The one that wanted to be a serious journalist? You're up, you're down, you're here, you're there, you're like a frickin' one woman circus.

Ben: So that's what I was, huh? I was a guinea pig. Somebody you can test your theories on?
Andie: Yeah, and I was just a girl somebody picked out in a bar.
Ben: Yeah, you know what? Big deal. Hell, now you can even use it as a little twist in your story.
Andie: That's a good idea. Maybe we should bet on it.
Ben: You know what, you did your job now, Andie.
Andie: Yes, I did.
Ben: You wanted to lose a guy in ten days, congratulations, you did it. You just lost him.
[walks away]
Andie: No I didn't Ben, 'cause you can't lose something you never had!

Andie: Hey, listen, Sparky. I have a masters in journalism from Columbia, my boss loves me, and if I do it her way for a while, I can write about whatever I want.
Ben: Like, shoes?

[Ben is trying to find words to be used as metaphors for diamonds]
Ben: How about 'Glitter'?
Tony: Thayer's favorite movie.
Thayer: It was underrated!

Ben: You see, the key to this game is being able to read people.

Andie: [crying at restaurant after waitress asks if everything is okay] My boyfriend thinks I'm fat!
[flicks food at Ben]
Andie: And I can't eat in front of him! I can't eat in front of you! I have to go to the bathroom.
Ben: [receives dirty looks from other customers] Honey, I don't think you're fat! I don't think she's fat!

Ben: Look, look, look, wait a minute. The one night we even thought about having sex, all right, she up and decides she's going to nickname my...
Michelle Rubin: Penis?
Ben: Yeah. "Princess Sophia." You want to talk about shooting a man's horse? Whop! Come on!

Michelle Rubin: So, tell me, how long have you guys been seeing each other?
Andie: Seven days.
Michelle Rubin: Seven days. Interesting.
Ben: Is that too soon to be seeing a therapist?
Andie: Well, Ben, seven days isn't like a lifetime, or anything...
Ben: It's like a week.

[last lines]
Ben: Look who made the trip with me.
Andie: It's our love fern! Oh, Bennie-boo-boo, boo-boo.

Thayer: We, you know, we got a whole bunch of work we have to do, but we're still on for poker at your house this weekend?
Ben: Oh, you count on it.
Andie: Whoo! Boys' night.
Tony: Whoo!

Ben: Excuse me, ma'am.
Jeannie Ashcroft: Holy crap!
Ben: Where's Andie Anderson?
Jeannie Ashcroft: Uh, she's not here.
Ben: Where is she?
Michelle Rubin: She quit.
Jeannie Ashcroft: She's got an interview in Washington.
Ben: When is she leaving?
Jeannie Ashcroft: Today.
Ben: When?
Jeannie Ashcroft: Well, like, now.
Ben: You're not a therapist, are you?
Michelle Rubin: Oh, haha... no.
Ben: Good job, though. You owe me three hundred bucks.

[Andie starts crying when Ben places food in front of her]
Ben: Hey, what's wrong?
Andie: Nothing. It's beautiful.
Ben: Thank you.
Andie: You're beautiful. The game, the whole thing. It's just... I wish I ate meat. Mary had a little lamb, little lamb... You have to take it away before I gag.
[Andie dry heaves]

Andie: Does Krull the Warrior King want to come out and play?
Ben: No.
Andie: Krull...
Ben: You know what, due to intense humiliation, the king has momentarily abdicated his throne, okay?
Andie: Oh. Uh-oh!
Ben: Yeah.
Andie: Well, in that case, I better get going. Take care of our love fern, honey.

Andie: I want you to respect me.
Ben: I do. And, I want your respect.
Andie: I respect you for respecting me.
Ben: I respect that.

Ben: [introducing Andie to his family] And this is Joey Jr.
Glenda: [to Jack, playing BS] Bullshit!
Ben: Now the whole family suffers from tourette's, I hope that's not a problem.
