Quotes

Ben Calder: So, you got a little thing for me, huh?

Anna Foster: No. Big thing.

Anna Foster: Ben. Can you ever just say what you really feel?

Ben Calder: Okay, all right! Because I'm jealous as hell. Because I'd hate to see you with Gus Gus. I'd hate to see you with any other man. Because not only did I adore kissing you in Venice, but also because I'm so un-bloody-hinged just being near you.

Ben Calder: If I kiss you, do you think they'll shoot me?

Anna Foster: No, but I will if you don't.

Ben Calder: So if you're scared, why do it?

Anna Foster: Because the things you're scared of are usually the most worthwhile.

President James Foster: Oh, good. Gabrielle found another trashy friend to hang out with.

Michelle Foster: Yeah, your daughter.

Anna Foster: I'm on fire! I'm untouchable! I'm Anna! Who are you?

Ben Calder: Ben Calder, freelance getaway man. Yeah, need the hand, need the hand.

Anna Foster: Dad! Way to go. I can't believe you had that restaurant swarming with all of your secret servants. You ruined my date! And now, I'm going to die before I ever get to third base... I mean second base.

[Anna turns to see others in room]

President James Foster: Anna?

Anna Foster: I'll talk to you about this later.

President James Foster: No, no. Stay. Pull up a chair. We were just discussing the G8 Summit in Prague, how to best persuade the EU leaders to adopt our plan for distributing humanitarian aid and medical technology to developing nations, but you had a bad date, so we should probably focus on that.

Anna Foster: No, no, no, I'm so sorry to have interrupted. Excuse me.

[Anna leaves]

President James Foster: So third base is what again?

[indistinct mumbling]

President James Foster: Glad I asked.

Anna Foster: Naked virgin safely in bed.

Michelle Foster: Never ask a President to promise, Honey.

Anna Foster: I'm not. I'm asking my dad.

Anna Foster: I want to swim naked in the Danube!

Ben Calder: Actually, it's the Vltava.

Anna Foster: Who wants to swim naked in the Vltava? Nobody says that.

Ben Calder: Because in English,Vltava means 'unhealthy bacteria level'.

Anna Foster: Yeah, right.

Ben Calder: Why can't you be free without being naked?

Ben Calder: What are you doing here?

Anna Foster: I'm um, a big Puccini groupie.

[pause]

Anna Foster: I'm studying for a semester at Oxford.

[pause]

Anna Foster: I came to find you.

Ben Calder: You did?

Anna Foster: Yeah, I'm making the big gesture.

Ben Calder: Anna? Anna!

Anna Foster: Ben! Come on! Venice awaits! Where have you been?

Ben Calder: Just having a mild heart attack.

Michelle Foster: How's your heart?

Anna Foster: It's a little bit broken.

Cynthia Morales: Love is not always that easy, Anna.

Alan Weiss: Nothing worth getting ever is.

Anna Foster: You didn't want me to get hurt, and you were right. I needed protection because people can't be trusted. I learned my lesson.

Secretary of State: Sir, the vice-president, still waiting.

President James Foster: President, still president.

Ben Calder: [to Anna] Can you please stop taking your clothes off around me?

Anna Foster: As soon as this train stops, we're going to go our separate directions.

McGruff: Hey, chilly-willy, Squabblers, take a few of these on your solo travels then.

Ben Calder: What are these? Six-Million-Dollar Man stickers?

McGruff: These stickers are my contribution to the global community. Everyone I meet gets a handful. Your job: post them up! Pound one on a door, slap one on a kiosk, place one on a postbox, wherever your life may lead you.

Anna Foster: And then what?

McGruff: Then, nothing. You forget about the sticker, you move on. One day, maybe you're a little down in the dregs, and all of a sudden, there it is! The corner of a window, the door of a subway, the side of a telephone booth, one of the stickers. And it puts a smile of your face because you know you are not alone in the world; we're all connected.

Ben Calder: Wanker.

Anna Foster: Oh! Ben! I want to find passion!

[runs into another couple]

Ben Calder: Sorry about that. We're just um, looking for passion.

Anna Foster: Here I am at this great school, and there's not one course on love.

Cynthia Morales: No, no, no, let me ask you something, Weiss. Do you actually get women like this? I was really curious if there were actually women out there in the world who walk by the construction lunch break which is your very personality and say: "Oh, yeah, please. Baby, give it to me. Give me some of that hard hat, right here, right now." There are actually women like that?

Alan Weiss: A couple.

Cynthia Morales: You on a last name basis with most of your girlfriends?

Alan Weiss: To answer your queston, no, I don't get women like that. I haven't actually had a girlfriend since... well let's just say that women stopped beating down my door the same time that the bangs stopped covering the receding hair line.

Cynthia Morales: Well maybe you should stop overcompensating, you're a good looking... I mean you look fine some women like a bald head.

Alan Weiss: I am not bald yet.

Cynthia Morales: I'm just saying maybe you should embrace it. You could cut it real short... some women like that they find it sexy.

Cynthia Morales: [looking at Weiss hair that is short]

Alan Weiss: What? What?

Cynthia Morales: You did this for me right?

Alan Weiss: [pointing at his hair] This? no I didn't do this for you.

Cynthia Morales: Really?

Alan Weiss: I got tired of styling it so...

Cynthia Morales: Oh... Okay because it is kind of sexy.

[both smile and they kiss]

Alan Weiss: You know, it's not enough just to be a beauty Morales, you have to be able to appreciate beauty too.

[while running in slow-motion]

Anna Foster: Excuse... me.

Anna Foster: You have a little thing for me, huh?

Ben Calder: I'll stop you there. I do not have a thing for you, okay, little or otherwise.

Anna Foster: Why did you get on the train with me to Berlin, then?

[pause]

Anna Foster: Mm-hmm.

Ben Calder: Okay, you know what, you're right. I'm strangely attracted to exhibitionist runaways. It's an addiction, really. I was in a program for a while where we had to spend time with fully-clothed home-bodies, but I've relapsed, again.
