Xanadu (1980)
Kira: Have you ever heard the expression "kissed by a muse"? Well, that's what I am. I'm a muse.
Sonny: Well, I'm glad someone's having a good time.
Kira: Oh, don't make jokes; I'm serious.

Sonny: I've come to take you out of here.
Kira: It can't be done. No one's ever taken anyone out of here. Not in the whole history of... the whole history!
Sonny: I'll make them let you go. Zeus! Zeus, you hear me?
Kira: Oh, God.

Sonny: I want to know more about you.
Kira: You already know enough about me. Any more and you're going to get a headache.
Sonny: Are you living with someone?
Kira: Yes. I told you I live with my sisters.
Sonny: I know. In an apartment on the second floor. All right, then. What's your last name?
Kira: Same as my mother's and father's.
Sonny: And what's that?
Kira: Which one, my mother's or my father's?
Sonny: Either!
Kira: The same as mine!
Sonny: I get it. No questions.
Kira: No questions, no lies.
Sonny: No questions, no truth, either.

Sonny: Aw, what the hell. Guys like me shouldn't dream anyway.

Kira: Look up "muse" in the dictionary. Go on, page seven twenty-eight. Read it!
Sonny: Okay, all right. I'll read it.
[reading]
Sonny: "Muse; any one of the nine sister..."
Kira: Like the album cover? Mm-hmm?
Sonny: [reading] "Any one of the nine sister goddesses in Greek mythology, presiding over song, and poetry, and the arts and do you believe me now, Sonny?" How'd you do that? What's going on?
Kira: [Points at the TV] The television!
[the television comes on and is showing a movie in black and white with two characters, Nick and Vargas, having a conversation when Nick pulls a gun]
Nick: What should I do, Sonny? Dive at him, um, or make a martini?
Vargas: Who you talking to?
Nick: Sonny Malone. He doesn't believe Kira's a muse.
Sonny: How can you be talking to me? You're a movie!
Vargas: I ain't got time for this, Malone. Brenda's the only one that saw me at the racetrack. Now if the lady says she's a muse, she's a muse.
[Brenda Trent enters, played by Kira, who is still also outside of the television screen]
Vargas: Who's that? Brenda!
Sonny: Kira!
Brenda Trent: Sonny.
[Sonny slumps into a chair]
Nick: I think he needs a drink.
Kira: It's okay; I'll take care of it. Thanks!
Nick: Good luck on the opening of your joint, kid.
[Puts his hands up]
Nick: Wish I could be there.
[the television goes off]

Sonny: [Sonny hears a clarinet being played, and goes to investigate, finding Danny McGuire sitting on some rocks] Hey mister, what are you doing up there?
Danny McGuire: Hope you don't mind a little noon-time music, kid. A little lunch time serenade.
Sonny: Oh, I don't mind. It's kinda nice. But I was just wondering where they laid out the body. I mean, you got something a little more upbeat?
Danny McGuire: Sure!
[Plays a short, lively upbeat piece]
Danny McGuire: Better?
Sonny: [chuckles] Well, at least it's faster!
Danny McGuire: [chuckles] Here, gimme a hand kid.
Sonny: Sure.
Danny McGuire: Boy oh boy, they sure don't make rocks like they used to!
Sonny: Want some popcorn?

Sonny: Hey wait a minute... I don't even know your name...
Kira: [Echoing] Kira...

Sonny: [about Kira] What do you mean she doesn't exist? I'm looking right at her, she's on the Nine Sisters album.

Sonny: I'd say it will probably be done... when it's done... but that's just an approximate guess.
Simpson: Five minutes, my office. If it's six, keep walking.

Sonny: Tuesday's Wednesday.

Danny McGuire: Kid can you imagine it?
Sonny: Imagine what?
Danny McGuire: A bandstand. Right over there in that corner. And a big band, like in the 40's
Sonny: Nah, nah, nah. Bandstands went out with running boards. Over there. A great rock 'n' roll band. This is the 80's!
Danny McGuire: Real smooth dancers... wild trombone... the band decked out in tuxedos.
Sonny: Six guys wearing electric orange... synthesizer... heavy precussion... electric guitar.
Danny McGuire: Lots of glamour. Everybody dressed in elegance and style.

Male Heavenly Voice: We don't use those old-fashioned names any more. Still, it's me you want to speak to.
Sonny: I've come to get Kira.
Male Heavenly Voice: She's not leaving - it's impossible!
Male Heavenly Voice, Sonny: [together] That's what you think!
Sonny: How did you know I was going to say that?
Male Heavenly Voice: Put it this way - I'm a good guesser!

Sonny: Hey I've been asking about you all day. You may not believe this but I'm painting an album cover and you're on it.
Kira: Why shouldn't I believe it?
Sonny: Because before today I never laid eyes on you. Now I've seen you 3 times in one day. That's a little too coincidental.
Kira: Sounds like you don't believe it.

Danny McGuire: Hey, do you like Glenn Miller?
Sonny: Do you like rock 'n' roll?
Danny McGuire: I love rock 'n' roll.
Sonny: I love Glenn Miller.

Sonny: You ever think about going back into music?
Danny McGuire: Oh, only about 20 or 30 times a day.

Kira: Our first date together.
Sonny: Followed by our first getting-kicked-out together.
