The Five People You Meet in Heaven (2004 TV Movie)
Ruby: Holding anger is a poison...It eats you from inside...We think that by hating someone we hurt them...But hatred is a curved blade...and the harm we do to others...we also do to ourselves...
Blue Man: Strangers are family you have yet to come to know.
Blue Man: There are no random acts...We are all connected...You can no more separate one life from another than you can separate a breeze from the wind...
Blue Man: Fairness does not govern life and death...If it did, no good man would ever die young...
Marguerite: Lost love is still love, Eddie. It just takes a different form, that's all. You can't hold their hand... You can't tousle their hair... But when those senses weaken another one comes to life... Memory... Memory becomes your partner. You hold it... you dance with it... Life has to end, Eddie... Love doesn't.
Captain: People stop sacrificing for one another, they lose what keeps them human.
Blue Man: Some people think of Heaven as a Garden of Eden...But what is scenery without solace?
Blue Man: In heaven, there is no judgment, but rather an opportunity to examine our lives-who we touched, the choices we made, and the consequences of those choices.
Blue Man: There is no fair in life and death. If it were, no good men would die young.
Morton: [to Young Eddie who is shaving] Hey, Goldilocks! It's gonna take ya a lot longer than that to get as pretty as me, you know that, right?
Morton: C'mon Robozzo, ya stick pin. Pick it up!
Robozzo: It's hot. And I got all this extra stuff to carry.
Morton: Oooh, I'm sorry Daisy, you get a little stain on your dress there, that what happened?
Robozzo: Shut your yap, Morton!
Morton: Heh. You must be jingle brained.
Eddie: The little girl at the pier, did I save her? I don't remember I just felt her hands... little hands... I just wanna know.
Captain: I can't tell ya. But someone can.
Ruby: [narrating] This is a story about a man named Eddie. And it begins at the end, with Eddie dying in the sun. You might think it's strange to start a story with an ending, but all endings are also beginnings. We just don't know it at the time.
Eddie's Father: [chastising his squabbling sons] This war in Europe keeps up, you'll be lucky to get a crappy job like mine.
Mickey Shea: [to young Eddie] Here's the thing about the war. You don't think; you just shoot and you shoot, and then you pray you come home. It's the thinking that gets you killed.
Marguerite: I've never been more than 5 miles from here.
Young Eddie: Me neither. But that's gonna change.
Young Eddie: Yeah, I ain't spending the my life at Ruby Pier.
Ruby: [narrating] Eddie saw nothing of his final moment on earth. He felt no pain from his death. All he felt was lightness and calm, as if every hurt he had ever suffered had been washed away. And then he woke up.
Blue Man: People think of heaven as a Garden of Eden - mountains, rivers... But what is scenery without solace. This is the greatest gift God can give you Edward: to understand your life on earth.
Captain: Sacrifice isn't something to be ashamed of. It's something to be proud of.
Eddie: [looking at Ruby's photos] That's before my time.
Ruby: Some things that come before your time can still affect you.
Ruby: I had a wish.
Eddie: What's that?
Ruby: [about Ruby Pier] That he'd never built that place.
Eddie: I had that wish a few times too.
Ruby: This is a story about a man named Eddie, who lived and died, and who would one day himself share the secret of heaven, that each life affects the other. And the other affects the next.
[he sees his wife on the ferris wheel]
Ruby: And the world is full of stories but stories are all one
