Quotes

Simon: I've been thinking.

Joe: Yeah?

Simon: Last year we were in the squirt league, and this year we're in the pewee.

Joe: So?

Simon: So what do they want us to do, play baseball or urinate? Anyway, I was just thinking.

Adult Joe Wenteworth: Time is a monster that cannot be reasoned with. It responds like a snail to our impatience, then it races like a gazelle when you can't catch a breath.

Simon: What I want to do and what I do are two separate things. If we all went around doing what we wanted all the time, there'd be chaos.

Simon: Your mother is so sexy, sometimes I forget she's someone's mother.

Joe: What if I said the same thing about your mother?

Simon: I'd have you committed.

Simon Birch: Sex makes people crazy.

Adult Joe Wenteworth: When someone you love dies, you don't lose them all at once. You lose them in pieces over time, like how the mail stops coming. What I remember most to this day was my mother's scent and how I hated it when it began to disappear. First from her closets, then from her dresses she had sewn herself and then finally from her bedsheets and pillow cases. Simon and I never talked much about that day on the baseball field. It was too painful for both of us. For as much as I loved my mother, I knew that Simon loved her just as much. She was the only real mother he ever had.

Simon: You're already a bastard. Might as well be an enlightened one.

Adult Joe Wenteworth: [voiceover] I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voice, not because of his voice, or because he was the smallest person I ever knew, or even because he was the instrument of my mother's death, but because he is the reason I believe in God. What faith I have, I owe to Simon Birch, the boy I grew up with in Gravedown, Maine.

Simon: I said, what does coffee and donuts have to do with God?

Rev. Russell: They're merely refreshments so people can socialize and talk about up coming events.

Simon: Who ever said church needs a continental breakfast?

Adult Joe Wenteworth: Ben Goodrich legally adopted me just two days before my 13th birthday. Not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for bringing him into my life. With Simon's help, I had finally found my real father.

Miss Leavy: [reading off remaining roles for the Christmas play] ... Well, there's the shepherds, but they don't do much -

[Everyone's hands spring up instantaneously]

Adult Joe Wenteworth: [voicecover] Miss Leavy always tried to downplay the role of the shepherds, but we weren't fooled. We knew that all you had to do was stand there with a staff and try not to laugh at all the poor fools with speaking parts.

Joe: Hey, your son is not a screw up, he's a hero.

Mr. Birch: What?

Joe: I said he's a hero. And you don't deserve him. I want you to know that.
