Liberty Heights (1999)
Ben Foster: Ben Kurtzman
Ben Kurtzman : You don't walk out on Sinatra, sir.
Ada Kurtzman : [about Ben's Halloween costume dressed as Hitler] Your father says you're not going out dressed that way.
Ben Kurtzman : And I'm not changing.
Ada Kurtzman : He says he's not changing.
Nate Kurtzman : I wanna talk to Hitler.
Ada Kurtzman : He has a swastika on his arm and big black boots! He's wearing big black boots! He came down the stairs in them with swastikas all over!
Nate Kurtzman : Put the Führer on the phone!
Ada Kurtzman : Your father wants to talk to you. Sorry!
Ben Kurtzman : [to his friends] You guys can go without me. Yeah, I'm having Halloween here.
Ben Kurtzman : [voice-over at the end] Life is made up of a few big moments, and a lot of little ones. I still remember the first time I kissed Sylvia, or the last time I hugged my father before he died. And I still remember that white-bread sandwich and that blonde dancing girl with the cigarette pack on her thigh. But a lot of images fade, and no matter how hard I try, I can't get them back. I had a relative once who said that if I knew things would no longer be, I would have tried to remember better.
Ada Kurtzman : How are the coloureds doing at school?
Ben Kurtzman : Okay, they're doing okay. They're getting better grades than I am. The girl's pretty attractive.
Ada Kurtzman : What?
Ben Kurtzman : ...She's attractive.
Ada Kurtzman : [angrily] Oh, just kill me now! Just kill me now!
Ben Kurtzman : What are you talking about...
Ada Kurtzman : What do you mean "she's attractive"?
Ben Kurtzman : Pretty.
Ada Kurtzman : Oh my God...
Ben Kurtzman : Mom, I said she was attractive, that doesn't necessarily mean I'm attracted to her!
Ben Kurtzman : By the way, where's the jawbone of the ass?
Ada Kurtzman : What?
Ben Kurtzman : The jawbone of the ass, where is it?
Grandma Rose : Is he crazy? What kind of talk is this?
Van Kurtzman : [walks in] Your ass does not have a jawbone.
Ben Kurtzman : Well, Samson slew the Philistines with the jawbone of an ass!
Ada Kurtzman : Not your ass, an animal!
Ben Kurtzman : [shocked] There's an animal called an "ass"?
Grandma Rose : [frowning] Such a mouth...
Ben Kurtzman : Look, I loved 'Samson and Delilah'. I hope they bring that movie back.
Ben Kurtzman : [impersonating] "... and he slew *hundreds* with the jawbone of an ass!"
Van Kurtzman : What, you believe this stuff?
Ben Kurtzman : I don't know.
Ada Kurtzman : What do you mean you don't know? It's in the Bible!
Van Kurtzman : Oh, so that makes it true?
Ada Kurtzman : It's the Bible! A story.
Van Kurtzman : Yeah, a true story?
