Quotes Sylvain Dielman: [Referring to his dead father] If he was ugly, did you want to make love with him?
Jeanne Dielman: Ugly or not, it wasn't all that important. Besides, "making love" as you call it, is merely a detail. And I had you. And he wasn't as ugly as all that.
Sylvain Dielman: Would you want to remarry?
Jeanne Dielman: No. Get used to someone else?
Sylvain Dielman: I mean someone you love.
Jeanne Dielman: Oh, you know...
Sylvain Dielman: Well, if I were a woman, I could never make love with someone I wasn't deeply in love with.
Jeanne Dielman: How could you know? You're not a woman. Lights out?
