Quotes

Allan: That's quite a lovely Jackson Pollock, isn't it?

Museum Girl: Yes, it is.

Allan: What does it say to you?

Museum Girl: It restates the negativeness of the universe. The hideous lonely emptiness of existence. Nothingness. The predicament of Man forced to live in a barren, Godless eternity like a tiny flame flickering in an immense void with nothing but waste, horror and degradation, forming a useless bleak straitjacket in a black absurd cosmos.

Allan: What are you doing Saturday night?

Museum Girl: Committing suicide.

Allan: What about Friday night?

Nancy: You're a dreamer. You're awkward. You're clumsy. They can see how desperate you are. You know this. You said it yourself. Oh, face it, Allan. You may be very sweet but you're not sexy.

Dick: What? You got into a fight?

Allan: Yep.

Dick: With who?

Allan: Some guys were getting tough with Julie. I had to teach them a lesson.

Dick: Are you all right?

Dick: Allan, you have invested your emotions in a losing stock, it was wiped out, it dropped off the board. Now what do you do Allan? You reinvest. Maybe in a more stable stock. Something with long term growth possibilities.

Linda: What reason did she give for wanting a divorce?

Allan: She wants a laugh; she doesn't laugh enough. Insufficient laughter; that's grounds for divorce. Oh, and skiing! She wants to go skiing. She wants to ski down a mountain laughing like an idiot.

Allan: I can't do it. How does it look? I invite her over and then come on like a sex degenerate. What am I, a rapist?

Bogart: You're getting carried away. You think too much. Just do it.

Allan: We're platonic friends. I can't spoil that by coming on. She'll slap my face.

Bogart: Oh, I've had my face slapped plenty of times.

Bogart: That was great. You've, uh, you've really developed yourself a little style.

Allan: Yeah, I do have a certain amount of style, don't I?

Bogart: Well, I guess you won't be needing me any more. There's nothing I can tell you now that you don't already know.

Allan: I guess that's so. I guess the secret's not being you, it's being me. True, you're - you're not too tall and kind of ugly, but - what the hell, I'm short enough and ugly enough to succeed on my own.

Bogart: Hmmph. Here's looking at you, kid.

Linda: Allan, the world is full of eligible women.

Allan: Yeah, but not like Nancy. She was a lovely thing. I used to lay in bed at night and watch her sleep. Once in a while she would wake up and catch me. She would let out a scream.

Linda: I feel some sort of a mystical attraction for Van Gogh. Why is that?

Allan: I don't know. I just know he was a great painter and he cut off an ear for a girl that he loved.

Linda: That's the kind of thing you would do for a girl.

Allan: I'd really have to like her a lot.
