Tet: My name is Tet. It's a pretty unusual name, it's from Vietnam. They had a war there, and there was something called the Tet offensive, and that's how I got my name.
Elisabeth: I'm a socialist now.
Rolf: So am I.
Elisabeth: No you're not, you're a social democrat, there's a big difference
Göran: You could say that we are like porridge. First we're like small oat flakes - small, dry, fragile, alone. But then we're cooked with the other oat flakes and become soft. We join so that one flake can't be told apart from another. We're almost dissolved. Together we become a big porridge that's warm, tasty, and nutritious and yes, quite beautiful, too. So we are no longer small and isolated but we have become warm, soft, and joined together. Part of something bigger than ourselves. Sometimes life feels like an enormous porridge, don't you think? Sorry, I'm standing around dreaming.
Fredrik: Now we have the same tape on our glasses as well.
Birger: Rather eat porridge together than a pork cutlet alone.
Erik: Listen: "What does surplus value mean? What is the difference between the term surplus value and the term profit?"
Lena: But please? We can discuss it later and cuddle now!
Birger: There's strength in being alone - that's just bullshit. Only thing worth anything is being together.
Elisabeth: Wait a bit. Why's it like this? Eva, you have a pink cover and pillow. Stefan has a blue pillow and cover. Why do boys have blue and girls pink? Can't I change your pillows?
Stefan: I want mine.
Elisabeth: This is important. You have to think about this when you're an adult.
Klas: I think your wife has understood something which you have not.
Lasse: Which is?
Klas: That there is no difference. We're all people. We can't be dividing ourselves. We're the same.
Fredrik: But it doesn't matter because I have no friends, either. Apart from you, that is.
Birger: I unscrewed it so you'd come here to fix it and we could talk some more.
Birger: We had each other. I think that loneliness is the most awful thing in this world.
