Nymphomaniac: Vol. II (2013)
Joe: [to the Debtor Gentleman as she is about to fellate him] I'm going to tell you a few stories. All you have to do is listen.

Joe: I believe I possess some qualifications in that I'm rather unscrupulous.
L: I know all about your qualifications and they're excellent.

Joe: I think this was one of your weakest digressions.

[after getting beat up]
Joe: Fill all my holes, please.

Joe: The secret ingredient for sex is love.

Joe: Dear everyone, don't think it's been easy, but I understand now that we're not and never will be alike. I'm not like you, who fucks to be validated and might just as well give up putting cocks inside of you. And I'm not like you. All you want is to be filled up and whether it's by a man or by tons of disgusting slop makes no difference. And I'm definitely not like you. That empathy you claim is a lie because all you are is society's morality police whose duty is to erase my obscenity from the surface of the earth so that the Bourgeoisie won't feel sick. I'm not like you. I am a nymphomaniac and I love myself for being one, but above all, I love my cunt and my filthy, dirty lust.

Joe: By the way, I can assure you that women who claim that negroes don't turn them on, are lying.
Seligman: So do they satisfy you, those negroes?
Joe: No, but they showed me there was a world far from mine I had to explore. And there perhaps on the other side get my life back.

Joe: Nobody knew his secret. Most probably not even himself. He sat there with his shame. I suppose I sucked him off, is a kind of apology.
Seligman: That's unbelievable!
Joe: Listen to me. This is a man who had succeeded in repressing his own desire, who had never before given into it right up until I forced it out. He had lived a life full of denial and had never hurt a soul. I think that's laudable.
Seligman: No matter how much I try, I can't find anything laudable in pedophilia.
Joe: That's because you think about the, perhaps 5% who actually hurt children. The remaining 95% never live out their fantasies. Think about their suffering. Sexuality is the strongest force in human beings. To be born with a forbidden sexuality must be agonizing. The pedophile who manages to get through life with the shame of his desire, while never acting on it, deserves a bloody medal.

Joe: The human qualities can be expressed in one word: hypocrisy.

Joe: We elevate those who say right but mean wrong, and mock those who say wrong but mean right.

Joe: Even though only one in a million, as my dubious therapist said, succeed in mentally, bodily, and in her heart ridding herself of her sexuality, this is now my goal.
Seligman: But is that a life worth living?
Joe: It's the only way I can live it. I will stand up against all odds, just like a deformed tree on a hill. I will muster all my stubbornness, my strength, my masculine aggression.

Joe: Each time a word becomes prohibited, you remove a stone from the Democratic foundation. Society demonstrates its impotence in the face of a concrete problem by removing words from the language. And I say that society is as cowardly as the people in it, who in my opinion are also too stupid for democracy.

Joe: The human qualities can be expressed in one word: Hypocrisy. We elevate those who say "right" but mean "wrong" and mock those who say "wrong" but mean "right." By the way, I can assure you that women who claim that negros don't turn them on, they're lying.

Joe: I seem to remember that the systematic approach to the crucifixion is of a violent and not to say sadistic nature.
Seligman: Oh yes, the passion of Christ is full of systematic violence... The Via Dolorosa, the nine stations of the cross and the 39 lashes.

Joe: How do you keep a wave upon the sand?

Joe: It's said to be difficult to take someone's life. I would've said that it's more difficult not to. For a human being, killing is the most natural thing in the world. We're created for it.

Joe: Who perhaps is happy when all is said and done.
