People Like Us (2012)
Sam: Six rules. And listen up, because I don't know if I'm gonna be able to tell you this again, okay? These are from my father. Number one. lf you like something because you think other people are gonna like it, it's a sure bet no one will. Number two. Most doors in the world are closed, so if you find one that you want to get into, you damn well better have an interesting knock. And if you knock like you drum, you'll be fine. Number three. Everything that you think is important, isn't. And everything that you think is unimportant is. Number four. Don't shit where you eat.
Josh: I wasn't planning on it.
Sam: He meant that metaphorically, of course. Now, bear in mind my father was not all that successful. Number five. Lean into it.
Josh: What does that mean?
Sam: It means that the outcome doesn't matter. What matters is that you're there for it. Whatever "it" is, good or bad. Kind of like right now. And finally, number six, a personal favorite. Never sleep with someone who has more problems than you.
Frankie: [pops from around the corner] Hey!
Sam: And my very own. Always assume your mother's listening.
Frankie: That is definitely a rule. Your mom is always listening.
Lillian: I hope you never have to know what it's like to love someone, and then find out you're not enough. I was trying to protect you from ever feeling that. Don't you think I believed I was flying to your defense with all the courage in my heart?
Sam: I swear to you on my life I'm not and will never hit on you. Ever.
Frankie: Wow, thank you. I'm sure that was meant to reassure me.
Sam: No, I'm just... I'm sure you get hit on all the time. I'm not one of those guys... I'm in a relationship right now, so...
Frankie: Oh, that's so great for you. What's his name?
