The Four Seasons (1981) Poster

Bess Armstrong: Ginny Newley (Callan)



  • Ginny : [about Anne]  You know, I don't want to talk her down, but she is unreliable. I mean Nick has made three appointments to meet her down at his lawyer's office and she's never shown up. She hasn't even called.

    Claudia Zimmer : Now wait a minute. No offense, Ginny, but twenty-one years ago Nick said he would be there on the other side of the bed every morning and for the last six months he hasn't kept his appointment either!

    Jack : [flustered]  Okay, look. Alright, alright. Let's calm down. It's not all that bad. It's just a little embarassing.

    Nick : I don't see what the big problem is. We're all adults. We'll just say hello and uh...

    Danny : Have a nervous breakdown.

    Claudia Zimmer : [approaching Ginny]  Ginny, I'm sorry. There is a lot of strain in the situation and I get passionate sometimes.

    Ginny : [crying and sniffling]  That's okay. I know you're just trying to be fair to everybody.

    [Ginny walks away] 

    Claudia Zimmer : [to Nick]  You're the one I wanted to make cry.

    [Nick goes after Ginny] 

    Danny : [to Claudia]  Well, you had to open up your mouth again.

    Claudia Zimmer : Danny, it's over and done with, please.

    Danny : Let's have a nice quiet time... a nice vacation.

  • Ginny : I think Danny's upset.

    Kate Burroughs : Oh, he'll be alright.

    Ginny : We've been joking around all night and he hasn't joined in. I think he's hurt. I think maybe we owe him an apology.

    Kate Burroughs : Why, because I laughed at him?

    Ginny : Well... yeah.

    Kate Burroughs : Look, Ginny, when people have been friends as long as we have, it's not such a terrible thing to kid somebody out of a depression. So don't get upset about what you don't understand.

  • Ginny : [to the other couples]  I've just about had it with you people!

    Nick : What's the matter?

    Ginny : I'll tell you what's the matter... I'm mad!

    [slight pause] 

    Nick : [concerned]  Ginny?

    Ginny : I fall in love with this man and all of a sudden in addition to him, I've got four constant companions! I have to work out a new relationship with somebody who is going through the worst period of his life, only I can't do it alone! I've got to do it in front of four other people! And it's not as if my privacy was invaded. You all let me know every single day that I have been intruding on your territory! Let me tell you something: As far as I'm concerned, you are all demanding and unforgiving... every single one of you. Everybody is sweet and warm and civil, but everybody ignores me! I'm like a leper! I'm... I'm a blank spot where Annie used to be."

  • Danny : [furiously at Jack]  Now, dammit! I just told you my deepest fear! Why can't you listen to what I'm saying instead of how I'm saying it? I mean, do you have any idea -any idea- what it is to be afraid of death? I can't eat my bowl of cereal in the morning because I have an irrational fear of milk. I stand there in hallways afraid to press strange elevator buttons. I almost threw out my jockey shorts because I have this fear of elastic!

    [Kate begins laughing hysterically] 

    Ginny : Don't laugh at him.

    Danny : No. Go on. Go on, laugh. Laugh. Good. I'm a fool, right? Right?

    Kate Burroughs : Oh, Danny. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Now, come on... are you really afraid of your underwear?

    [she starts laughing again] 

    Danny : I'm dying, she's laughing.

  • Danny : [the friends are making lunch in cramped quarters on the boat]  I haven't used salt or mucus products for three years and I feel just great.

    Ginny : Who eats mucus?

    Claudia Zimmer : [disgusted]  He means cheese and milk. Danny, say what you mean, would you please? You're talking to humans here!

  • Ginny : I never met anyone who knew so much about the actuarial tables.
