Quotes

Ben Sanderson: We both know that I'm a drunk. And I know you are a hooker. I hope you understand that I am a person who is totally at ease with that. Which is not to say that I'm indifferent or I don't care, I do. It simple means that I trust and accept your judgment.

Sera: I do. I really do.

Ben Sanderson: Are you desirable? Are you irresistible? Maybe if you drank bourbon with me, it would help. Maybe if you kissed me and I could taste the sting in your mouth it would help. If you drank bourbon with me naked. If you smelled of bourbon as you fucked me, it would help. It would increase my esteem for you. If you poured bourbon onto your naked body and said to me "drink this". If you spread your legs and you had bourbon dripping from your breasts and your pussy and said "drink here" then I could fall in love with you. Because then I would have a purpose. To clean you up and that, that would prove that I'm worth something. I'd lick you clean so that you could go away and fuck someone else.

Sera: I think the thing is, we both realized that we didn't have that much time. And I accepted him for who he was, and I didn't expect him to change, and I think he felt that for me, too. I liked his drama, and he needed me. And I loved him. I really loved him.

Sera: You go back to your hotel and I'll go back to my glamorous life of being alone. The only thing I have to come home to is a bottle of mouthwash to get the taste of cum out of my mouth. I'm tired of being alone. That's what I'm tired of.

Sera: So why are you a drunk?

Ben Sanderson: Why am I a drunk? Is that really what you wanna ask me?

Ben Sanderson: Don't you think you'd get a little bored, living with a drunk?

Sera: Well... that's what I want.

Ben Sanderson: You haven't seen the worst of it. I knock things over... throw up all the time. These past few days I've been very controlled. You're like some sort of antidote that mixes with the liquor and keeps me in balance. But, that won't last forever.

Sera: [Ben has been on another binge] I want you to see a doctor.

Ben Sanderson: Sera... I'm not gonna see a doctor. Perhaps now would be a good time for me to move back to a motel.

Sera: And do what? Rot away in a room? We're not gonna talk about that. Fuck you, we're not gonna talk about that!

[starts to cry]

Sera: You're staying here! You could do this for me. I've given you gallons of free will around here.

[throws her chopsticks on the table]

Sera: You could do this one thing for me!

[pause]

Sera: I have to go to work now.

Ben Sanderson: I understand what you're saying. I appreciate your concern. It's not my intention to make you uncomfortable. Please, serve me today, and I'll never come in here again. If I do, you can 86 me.

L.A. Bartender: Stop fucking with me! I can 86 you anytime I want to. Hey, I don't give a fuck what you do. That one's on the house, son.
