Marvin's Room (1996)
Hank: Most of the time I just keep to myself. I think like what it would be like to be... someone else.
Bessie: We're all really glad you're here.
Hank: Yeah we should do it again in like another 17 years.
Hank: There's this one dude on my floor, held a razor blade under his tongue for like 5 hours. He talked to the orderlies, he ate, everything.
Bessie: Well, why on earth did he do that?
Hank: He was trying to break my record.
Ruth: How could one sister be so good and the other so bad?
Bessie: Oh my goodness, just look at you. Are you really that old?
Bessie: Uh, Janine, I wonder if you could tell me how long I might have to wait, because I left Aunt Ruth at home in charge of dad, and...
Janine: You'll have to see Doctor Wally, because Doctor Serrot is on vacation.
[finishes typing "I quit" letter]
Bessie: See "Doctor who"?
Bessie: I wish we could get along.
Lee: We do get along.
Bessie: No I know but I mean really get along and be polite with one another.
Lee: We're Sisters.
Bessie: Oh, Lee, I've been so lucky. I've been so lucky to have Dad and Ruth. I've had such love in my life. You know, I look back, and I've had such... such love.
Lee: They love you very much.
Bessie: No, that's not what I mean. No, no... I mean that I love them. I've been so lucky to have been able to love someone so much.
Lee: We're going to see your Aunt Bessie in Florida. She's not feeling so well.
Hank: I didn't even knew I had an Aunt Bessie.
Lee: She came to the house right after your Dad and I were married.
Hank: I wasn't even born yet.
Lee: You know how every goddamn Christmas I say, Looks like we didn't get a card again this year from your Aunt Bessie? Well, that's my sister Bessie.
Bessie: Dad's dying. He's been doing it for about twenty years so I don't miss anything.
Lee: This is my sister we're talking about. We're not gonna let her die just so you can have one of your moods.
Lee: We call it the loony bin, or the nut house, to show that we've got a sense of humor about it.
Hank: [upon being asked to get out of the car] They're having a top 100 countdown and I want to hear number 1.
Lee: What number are they up to?
Lee: [to her son] My feelings for you, Hank, are like a big bowl of -
Lee: fish hooks. I can't just pick up one up at a time. I pick one up and they all come, so I just had to leave 'em alone.
Lee: Don't waste your time trying to make friends with him. We're only going to be here a few days.
