Broadcast News (1987)
Aaron Altman: I know you care about him. I've never seen you like this about anyone, so please don't get me wrong when I tell you that Tom, while being a very nice guy, is the Devil.
Jane Craig: This isn't friendship. You're crazy, you know that?
Aaron Altman: What do you think the Devil is going to look like if he's around?
Jane Craig: God!
Aaron Altman: Come on! Nobody is going to be taken in by a guy with a long, red, pointy tail! What's he gonna sound like?
Aaron Altman: No. I'm semi-serious here.
Jane Craig: You're seriously...
Aaron Altman: He will be attractive! He'll be nice and helpful. He'll get a job where he influences a great God-fearing nation. He'll never do an evil thing! He'll never deliberately hurt a living thing... he will just bit by little bit lower our standards where they are important. Just a tiny little bit. Just coax along flash over substance. Just a tiny little bit. And he'll talk about all of us really being salesmen. And he'll get all the great women.

Aaron Altman: And in the middle of all this, I started to think about the one thing that makes me feel really good and makes immediate sense... and it's you.
Jane Craig: Oh, Bubba.
Aaron Altman: I'm going to stop right now. Except that I would give anything if you were two people, so that I could call up the one who's my friend and tell her about the one that I like *so much*!

Paul Moore: It must be nice to always believe you know better, to always think you're the smartest person in the room.
Jane Craig: No. It's awful.

[Playback on monitor]
Reluctant Interviewee: Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. Can you use that?
Aaron Altman: Depends on how slow a news day it is.
[Reacting to the playback]
Jane Craig: I can't believe you said that!
Aaron Altman: I'm very proud of that.

Jane Craig: No, no, no it wasn't just the speech, the same thing happened with this guy. I have passed some line, some place. I am beginning to repel people I'm trying to seduce.
Aaron Altman: He must've been great looking...
Jane Craig: Why do you say that?
Aaron Altman: Because nobody invites a *bad* looking idiot up to their bedroom.

Jane Craig: Bastard! Sneak! Quitter!
Aaron Altman: [cheerfully] Speaking!

Jane Craig: Just what do you want from me anyway, permission to be a fake? Stop whining.

Jane Craig: I-I can't help you. Sorry, I'm not here to teach remedial reporting.

Jane Craig: People called in complaining about your sweating?
Aaron Altman: No, NICE calls, worried that I was having a heart attack.

[On Aaron's sweating incident on the air]
Jane Craig: [on phone] It wasn't UNPRECEDENTED, was it?
Tom Granick: [on phone] Not unless you count "Singin' In the Rain".

Jane Craig: So you like me, huh?
Tom Granick: I like you as much as I can like anyone who thinks I'm an asshole.

Tom Granick: It's amazing who's here.
Jane Craig: Who?
Tom Granick: Me.

Tom Granick: You're an *amazing* woman - what a *feeling* having you inside my head!
Jane Craig: [smiling] Yeah - it was - an unusual place to be.
Tom Granick: It's like - indescribable - you knew *just* when to feed me the next line, you knew the m... second before I needed it. There was like, a *rhythm* we got into - it was like - *great sex*!
[he pulls her toward him while she laughs]
