Unhook the Stars (1996)
Mildred: Love, I have found, is temporary. It's stupid, but it's like a weed. You know, if it's there you don't have to pay that much attention to it, it just grows, with just a little bit of water. But if you really try, you can kill it. It doesn't have a home, you know, it's tragic. If it's not wanted, it'll just move on.
Mildred: You're not an adult. An adult is someone who works and takes care of themselves.
Mildred: That's what Thanksgiving is all about - meeting friends and eating a lot.
Jake 'J.J.' Warren: Remember when you sang me that doggy in the window song? Where you changed some of the animals and I didn't know how some of the animals sounded, and we laughed?
Mildred 'Millie' Hawks: Mmm hmm. Yes.
Jake 'J.J.' Warren: That was fun, I liked that.
Mildred 'Millie' Hawks: Me too.
Monica Warren: Oh great, you're gonna stand me up on Thanksgiving you little prick.
Annie Hawks: You mean what am I doing? Where am I staying? Do I have a phone number? Do I have a job? Why do I need money? Nothing, nowhere, I don't know, no job, Because I'm broke. Okay."
Frankie Warren: What do you want me to do? I'll get on my knees and beg you not to be a bitch.
Monica Warren: Uh, can't really stay, I got a date, I just left word on my answering machine that I'd be over here, so I hope you don't mind if he calls.
Ethan Hawks: No, that's fine.
Monica Warren: Thanksgiving. Hot date. You know what I mean. I mean I wouldn't mind eating over here. I hear your old lady's a real good cook and all, but as soon as that phone rings, I gotta go.
Mildred: [delivering morning newspapers] For the last time... Really the last time...
