Quotes

Rand: My question is, does the chemical make-up between two human mammals make up our personal involvement a moot point?

Sarah McCaulley: Of course, it's all chemical to start with. It's all just signals to communicate with these bodies we live in, but true love is incredible, all consuming.

Rand: No I totally agree with you, all consuming. BUt so is the lust, I mean is it possibly rooted in physiology rather then

[hand quotes]

Rand: our hearts?

Rand: You cold?

Sarah McCaulley: No, what are you feeling? Are you all squishy inside or is this just some phermones thing that's kicking in?

Rand: Well it's obviously your pheromones...

Sarah McCaulley: My pheromones?

Rand: Yeah, your epocrine glads produce most of them. I sense them through smell. Especially when we kiss.

Sarah McCaulley: What else are you feeling?

Rand: Biologically, my ribonasal organ and my hypothalamas are kicking in the hormones right now.

Sarah McCaulley: What hormones?

Rand: Testosterone, big time.

Sarah McCaulley: Okay, shut up now.

[making out]

Rand: Now the neurotransmitters are filling with dopamine. That's the pleasure drug that our body produces. It creates a high, it's addicting.

Sarah McCaulley: [stops kissing] That all you're feeling? Is it anything else to you?

Rand: It's a little hard to tell right now...

Sarah McCaulley: I'm serious.

Rand: I'm serious too.

Sarah McCaulley: What puts us above the level of being animals?

Rand: Our intelligence.

Sarah McCaulley: It's not love? Oh it's not love to you.

Rand: Sarah, I told you what was going on inside me. Is that love? I don't know.

Sarah McCaulley: That's cool Rand. I've got some holes to fill and I'm not sure intelligence is the answer.

Sarah McCaulley: [speaking into monitor] I've been thinking a lot about what you said. And I need to find Sam, just to see her from a distance to see if she's okay.

Sarah McCaulley: Your Mom loves you, still does and always will. Maybe love is all chemical, maybe it's also "We'll keep the species going." But I think whoever or whatever planned it that way, must have known what love felt like.

Sarah McCaulley: That's a good enough reason.

Rand: You really know how to make a guy feel confident.

Rand: No one will ever live up to what you and Sam had.

Sarah McCaulley: Why?

Rand: I think you're judging people on the wrong scale.

Sarah McCaulley: Why can't it be like that?

Rand: [ponders] ... you're only born perfect?

Sarah McCaulley: ...and it's all downhill from there. Why me Rand?

Rand: What do you mean?

Rand: Why am I not some chemical reaction that will run out on you one day, what makes me special?

Sarah McCaulley: I don't know.
