Indecent Proposal (1993)
David: [while playing pool] I guess there's limits to what money can buy.
John: Not many.
Diana: Well some things aren't for sale.
John: Such as?
Diana: Well you can't buy people.
John: That's naive, Diana. I buy people every day.
Diana: In business, maybe, but you can't buy people not when real emotions are involved.
John: So you're saying you can't buy love? That's a bit of a cliché don't you think?
Diana: It's absolutely true.
John: Is it? What do you think?
David: I agree with Diana.
John: You do? Well let's test the cliché. Suppose... I were to offer you one million dollars for one night with your wife.
David: I'd assume you're kidding.
John: Let's pretend I'm not. What would you say?
Diana: He'd tell you to go to hell.
John: I didn't hear him.
David: I'd tell you to go to hell.
John: That's a reflex answer because you view the question as hypothetical. But let's say that there was real money backing it up. I'm not kidding. A million dollars. The night would come and go but the money could last a lifetime. Think of it. A million dollars. A lifetime of security... for one night. Don't answer right away. Just consider it; seriously?
David: We're positive, okay?
John: Well then you've proved your point. There are limits to what money can buy. It's late, and I hate to admit it, but I have meetings in the morning. May I have one dance? With your permission.
David: You know something? I think you better hurry on to that meeting. You don't want to miss out on your next billion.
John: Understood. I wouldn't part with her either. Good night.

David: I thought he was the better man. I know now he's not. Just got more money.

Diana: Have I ever told you I love you?
David: No.
Diana: I do.
David: Still?
Diana: Always.

Jeremy: OK, David, before we go any further, let's get the moral issue out of the way.
David: Leave that to us.
Jeremy: No, I was referring to my fee. I get five percent.

Jeremy: Davy, she says she doesn't want the money.
David: Well, I don't want the money either.
Jeremy: ...I'll take it. I mean, nobody else wants it.

David: I thought we were invincible. But now I know that the things that people in love do to each other, they remember. And if they stay together, it's not because they forget. It's because they forgive.
