The Marriage of Maria Braun (1979)
Senkenberg: Your union is talking socialism, Klenze, and I don't like it.
Willi Klenze: We're only paying you back in kind. It's no wonder, the way you play the entrepreneur.
Senkenberg: The secretary of the treasury said...
Willi Klenze: Yeah, "We're all in the same boat." Trouble is, it's your boat, and we have to row it.

Maria Braun: Betti was your wife, after all - the only person I can tell all my troubles to.
Willi Klenze: Because she doesn't listen.
Maria Braun: Could be. You need somebody who listens. I need the opposite.

Maria Braun: And Annelise - what's she like?
Willi Klenze: She's what a man needs, someone who is his equal. She can talk, think - my equal in every way.
Maria Braun: So you think women have to be men's equal?
Willi Klenze: Sure, except most men aren't conscious of it yet. 'Consciousness lags behind reality.'
Maria Braun: Did Annelise say that?
Willi Klenze: Why?
Maria Braun: You'll wish you had your Betti back.
