Dead Again (1991) Poster



Cozy Carlisle: Someone is either a smoker or a nonsmoker. There's no in-between. The trick is to find out which one you are, and be that. If you're a nonsmoker, you'll know.

Gray Baker: Aren't you afraid of dying?

Roman Strauss: To die is different than what anyone supposes and luckier.

Gray Baker: Is that a line from your opera?

Roman Strauss: It's Walt Whitman. I can't take credit for everything, Mr. Baker.

Cozy Carlisle: You take what you've learned from this life and use it in the next. That's karma.

Mike Church: I thought karma was I do something bad in this life and I'm a termite in the next.

Cozy Carlisle: Hey, if you ask me, pal, you're already a termite in this life in a shitty suit, OK?

Mike Church: [Baker smokes a cigarette through the hole in his throat, and gives the pack back to Mike] Keep 'em. I just quit.

Pete: I've known Mike Church forever. He would never hurt her.

Franklyn Madson: This is fate we're talking about, and if fate works at all, it works because people think that THIS TIME, it isn't going to happen!

Cozy Carlisle: Hey, thumbdick, I was a damn good shrink. Nineteen years I worked with a lot of people through a lot of shit. OK, I slept with a patient or two. It's not like I didn't care about them. I loved being a doctor. I used to not charge half my patients. Then the fucking state comes along, they send in some bitch undercover, and I'm fucked. Life isn't fair, is it?

Cozy Carlisle: Karmically, self-defense is quite cool.

Mike Church: Why would she want to kill me now?

Cozy Carlisle: Why do women do anything?

[leaving Cozy Carlisle's freezer]

Mike Church: Nice place you've got here.

[under his breath]

Mike Church: Fucking fruitcake.

Franklyn Madson: Well I, for one, am v-v-very interested to see w-w-what's going to happen next.

Grace: [having accidentally shot Mike] I just shot him...

Franklyn Madson: Thank you!

[looks at Mike, then back at her]

Franklyn Madson: Less work for Frankie!

[Grace tries to shoot Franklyn but the gun jams]

Franklyn Madson: [sighs] Antiques!

Mike Church: Take the fucking scissors, Grace!

Roman Strauss: The man I bought it from explained to me that, when a husband gives it to his wife, they become two halves of the same person. Nothing can separate them... not even death.

Roman Strauss: What I believe, Mr. Baker, is that this is all far from over.

Franklyn Madson: Actually, I'm a hypnotist.

Mike Church: OK, here's the water, there's the door, sorry about the stairs.

Mike Church: I'm not looking for Ms. Right, I'm looking for Ms. Right Now.

Pete: [jokingly talking about Grace who's outside the door] Oh, and you don't have to worry about forgetting her name... she's already forgotten it for you!

Mike Church: [unamused] Right.

Mike Church: I'm not Roman!

Roman Strauss: These... are for you!
