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.

[last lines]
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.

[first lines]
David: [sitting on a pier] Losing Diana is like losing a part of me. I thought nothing could change the way we felt about each other. I thought we were invincible.
Diana: [riding in a bus] Someone once said, if you want something very badly, set it free. If it comes back to you, it's yours forever. If it doesn't, it was never yours to begin with. I knew one thing, I was David's to begin with, and he was mine.

Diana: Your pants are on fire.
David: You have no idea.

Diana: I would never do this for myself. It was all for you.
David: Don't lie to me! You were attracted to him!

David: [Narrating] I graduated from architecture school and got a job at a small firm. Diana helped support us by selling real estate. I spent all of my free time working on a design of my own, it summed up everything about architecture that really mattered to me, it was my dream house

John: [while playing pool] Where do you see yourself in let's say, ten years?
David: I wouldn't mind being a billionaire like yourself
John: I mean even beyond money, what would satisfy you completely? For you to sleep well at night?
David: You're saying you're not satisfied?
John: Who is?
Diana: [while watching them play] I am
John: Does she mean it?
David: I hope so
John: Well then you may not have won in Vegas but you're a lucky man because I have money and businesses and security you just have something I don't have.

David: [Narrating, referring their idea to construct and build the house David designed himself] it was brilliant even though I didn't understand a word of it. We had to tighten our belts because of the loan payments but it was our future and I got to build my dream house and then the recession hit. Construction fell to its lowest point in years, people were being laid off everywhere and I was one of them. I was desperate we stood to lose everything: the house I had building even our own home. I swallowed my pride and borrowed five thousand dollars from my father but it wasn't enough, we needed fifty thousand dollars
