Side Effects (I) (2013)
Dr. Jonathan Banks: Depression is an inability to construct a future.
Emily Taylor: Imagine everything you ever wanted shows up one day and calls itself your life. And then just when you start to believe in it - gone. And suddenly it gets very hard to imagine a future. That's depression, right?
Orderly: How are you doing today, Emily?
Emily Taylor: [gazing out window] Better. Much better.
Emily Taylor: I read somewhere that there's a difference between tears of joy and tears of rage. Is that true? It's in the chemistry, but you can't tell by looking, they all just look like tears.
Dr. Jonathan Banks: I'm a psychiatrist, Miss Taylor. Normally, when people hit things with their car, there are skidmarks on the pavement. A brick wall is a pretty good reason to use the brakes, turn the wheel. You didn't do that.
Dr. Jonathan Banks: She's not depressed.
Assistant District Attorney: Yeah. And you didn't catch it and someone died. And I didn't catch it and someone didn't go to jail. We failed.
Female Guard: Front door!
Prison Desk Guard: I can't let it in unless I see it.
Upset Visitor: I know. I know what the rules are. I'm just asking if you can make an exception.
Prison Desk Guard: There are no exceptions. That's why we have rules.
Dierdre Banks: [about taking beta blocker] Is it bad that I'm doing this?
Dr. Jonathan Banks: Everyone takes them. Lawyers, musicians - people going to interviews for big jobs. It doesn't make you anything you're not. It just makes it easier for you to be who you are.
Martin's Mother: [reading from Emily's letter] "We go to doctors with our sadness and our faith in the hope they will guide us toward health. But instead I have gone down a path toward a misery I never could have imagined. And I have taken my loved ones with me. My only hope is that no one else follows me to this place."
Dr. Jonathan Banks: [about electroshock] It's in our best interest that you start forgetting.
Emily Taylor: I won't be able to tell the truth if I take anymore pills.
