Prince Avalanche (2013)
Alvin: True love is just like a ghost - people talk about it but very few have actually seen it.
Alvin: There's a difference between being lonely and being alone.
Lance: So when you say something negative and insult the other person... You're really just showing that other person what an unsure-of-yourself-type person that you really feel like you are.
Alvin: I was running, and then I reached the cliff, and all I know is I wanted to either fly or kill myself.
Title Card: In 1987, 43,000 woodland acres in central Texas were burned by wildfires. Approximately 1,600 homes were destroyed and 4 lives were lost. The causes of the fires remains unknown.
Alvin: [about cassette tape] Hey! What are you doing?
Lance: I was falling asleep. I thought it would be a good idea to change the station situation.
Alvin: It wasn't. I was listening to that.
Lance: I know, but it's boring for the rest of us. I was falling asleep doing the work.
Alvin: So what?
Lance: So, I wanna play this tape. I wanna play this play to get motivated and pumped up, ya know?
Alvin: I know, I know you want to play that tape. Look, you know what, Lance, I'm not here to start a fight. That's not what I want to do. But I need to listen to my language tapes in order to become proficient and informed to the best of my abilities.
Lance: What about the equal time agreement?
Alvin: That doesn't apply to studies in education. The equal time boom box agreement doesn't apply in this case. That's for recreation.
Lance: Oh, come on!
Alvin: Hey, don't push my buttons, alright? You are not the boss here. I'm the boss. I hired you. And we have a lot of work to do. We could sit here arguing about language and music and blah, blah. But we've got a lot of work to do. A lot of lines to paint, and it's a very long road. I suggest you start the machine and keep it going.
Lance: You have your tool belt on backwards.
[restarts the loud motor]
Alvin: Let's just enjoy the silence.
Truck Driver: You know what? You shouldn't smoke.
Alvin: Yeah, I know, it's bad for ya.
Truck Driver: No, I mean *you* shouldn't smoke. You look stupid.
Lance: Hey, Alvin. If you were in a regional beauty pageant, and you were a girl, what would your special talent be?
Alvin: Triple Jump.
Alvin: If there was a woman in that truck - I'm not saying that there is - but if there was, would you be good to her?
Truck Driver: HUH?
Alvin: Would you be good to her? Would you make sure that everything is okay?
Truck Driver: You better believe it.
Truck Driver: Well, let me give you a little advice. Never sleep with the same woman more than three times in a row, no matter how good it is. Otherwise, ya start to develop feelings. Feelings. That's how you feel.
