Take This Waltz (2011) Poster


Geraldine: Life has a gap in it. It just does. You don't go crazy trying to fill it like some lunatic.

Lou: Maybe you should take a shower. It'll make you feel better

Margot: I don't want to take a shower

Lou: Just do me a favor, ok?

Margot: [in the shower and Lou splashes cold water on her] You?

Lou: Yeah

Margot: Every - ?

Lou: Everyday

Margot: There's no...

Lou: There's no problem with the water. There's nothing to get fixed. I thought when we're 80, I'll tell Margot I've been doing this her whole life, and it'll make her laugh. As kind of a long term joke

Lou: [leaves]

Margot: [laughs and starts to cry]

Geraldine: Life has a gap in it... It just does. You don't go crazy trying to fill it.

Margot: Sometimes I'm... walking along the street and a shaft of sunlight falls in a certain way across the pavement and I just wanna cry. And then a second later, it's over. I decide because I'm an adult, to not succumb to the momentary melancholy; And I thought that sometimes with Tony, she just had a moment like that. A moment of not known how or why, and she just let herself go into and there was nothing anyone could do to make it any better. It was just her and the fact of being alive, colliding.

Daniel: Or maybe you just didn't figure out what it was.

Daniel: I've been thinking about that airport fear of yours, of being in between things. I think I kinda hate it too. I know it's kind of the nature of being alive, but I'd like to avoid it wherever possible. I don't think I wanna be in between things

Geraldine: You think everything can be worked out if you just make the right move? That must be thrilling... Life has a gap in it. It just does. You don't go crazy trying to fill it like some lunatic.

Margot: I'd like to make a date to kiss you.

Daniel: Well... my schedule's fairly flexible.

Margot: Is it flexible in 30 years?

Daniel: 30 years?

Margot: I'd like to see you at the lighthouse in Louisbourg. I'd like to meet you there. I'll be 58, I don't know how old you'll be...

Daniel: I'll be 59.

Margot: I'd like to see you there, on this date, at... 2PM. Eastern Standard time. August 5th, 2040, I'd like to kiss you. Until then, I'm married. But after 35 years of being faithful to my husband I think I'll have earned one kiss from you.

Margot: I'm married

Daniel: Oh. That's too bad.

[Gets out of the taxi]

Daniel: That's too bad cause I live right here.

Margot: Oh shit.

Lou: [to a hesitant Margot] Get in. What are you doing? What the fuck? You're going to ride in a rickshaw!

Margot: I should've called. I just didn't know what to say...

Lou: It's hard to know, I guess.

Lou: Hey Margot! I just bought a new melon baller and I'd like to gouge out your eyes with it

Margot: [smiles] Yeah, me too

Lou: Bye, Margot

Margot: Bye, Lou

Lou: At least I have my testicles.

Margot: [holding the painting Daniel made her] I guess my response is... Fuck you.

Margot: A dog is like a starter for a kid.

Lou: No, a dog is like a starter for a cow... or a bigger animal.
