Winter Kills (1979)
Pa Kegan: I got sixty million bucks riding on that ship, kiddo, and you leave her like a Friday-night hooker.
Pa Kegan: I'm all that's standing between you and darkest night, son. The other side of me, there's Chaos.
Z.K. Dawson: You think before you speak, young man! Jesus, they didn't teach you kids nothin' since 1944.
John Cerruti: Your father spent eleven million dollars to raise your brother up from a skirt-chasing college-boy to President of the United States. For twenty years he told him what to do and how and why he was gonna do it and what would happen when it was done. Your father put Tim in the White House - why? Because that's where you can generate the most cash; a cold-ass business proposition, like everything else in this society. But your brother decided to stir up the population. Began to think we were all living in a democracy, he started believing it. Lunch with the De Gaulles, dinner with Khrushchev, the whole razzle-dazzle went to his head. Yet in spite of the fact that everybody out there in this country lives in the same dog-eat-dog way, grabbing any angle to make a buck, if you were to inform them that your father had Tim killed, they'd wanna tear the old man apart, limb from limb.
John Cerruti: I'm so glad you're here! I receive so few outsiders. Who to trust? Who to trust? All of the nerves, but none of the flesh.
Nick Kegan: I think I'm going to leave.
Yvette Malone: If you want to. I have a friend coming over if you'd like to meet her.
Nick Kegan: Friend? Who?
Yvette Malone: Patty! She's from the magazine. You'd dig her.
Nick Kegan: Dig her? What does that mean?
Yvette Malone: Whatever you want it to mean. God, you're just like the others!
Nick Kegan: Others. How many are there?
Yvette Malone: Fewer and fewer.
Nick Kegan: Oh, i get it. You're into women.
Yvette Malone: I am a woman.
Nick Kegan: You know what I'm talking about.
Yvette Malone: Nope, and I won't marry a person I can't understand.
Nick Kegan: Goodnight.
Yvette Malone: Call the machine whenever you want, darling. It only goes one way.
Nick Kegan: Why won't you marry me?
Yvette Malone: You hardly know me.
Nick Kegan: We see each other, I talk to you all the time.
Yvette Malone: You talk to my machine.
Nick Kegan: Ah so what, I can tell the difference!
Yvette Malone: That's a beginning.
Nick Kegan: I'm making an honest proposal of marriage!
Yvette Malone: Tell you what. I'll give you a copy of my answering machine tape and you can take it with you.
Nick Kegan: Come on, don't toy with me.
Yvette Malone: I'm serious!
Nick Kegan: We'll have this huge wedding at Saint Patrick's cathedral!
Yvette Malone: Saint Patricks? What if i'm jewish?
Nick Kegan: That doesn't matter, Pa knows the cardinal.
Yvette Malone: You see darling? You know nothing about me.
Nick Kegan: I know all i need to know!
Yvette Malone: You know what? That you're in love with my answering machine?
