Love the Hard Way (2001)
Jack: What kind of movies do you prefer, the ones with the sad endings or the happy ones?
Claire: The sad ones definitely. I like movies that make me cry.
Jack: Then you're with the right guy.
Jack: You're finished with me right?
Claire: [nods no]
Jack: Not the man you'd hoped I'd be?
Claire: [nods yes]
Jack: It's better this way, ok? Now stop crying, I don't deserve your tears.
Claire: You've been lying to me from the start haven't you?
Jack: Look I just wanted to fuck you, that's all it was.
Claire: When you said you loved me was that a lie too? Nothing was true. Just lies, just fucking lies.
Jack: Look I don't love anyone Claire, and you're hurt cause the love story that you made up for yourself fell apart, and it's all in your mind.
Claire: I'm dead.
Jack: Don't be so dramatic.
Jack: I thought I was disconnected from everything, for a long time I'd been leading an unstable, risky life. I'd hung out with all sorts of people, nothing could shock me anymore. I was not impressed by the unexpected, I'd always been able to handle it. That night however, when I saw Claire again, I just fell to pieces. I thought I'd managed to forget her, I'd overcome the pain and remorse which made me want to see her again.
Claire: He's really shy. Jack play's tough, but if he could just break out of his hard guy routine he could do anything. Jack's not dumb.
Debbie: I'm talking about Jack, he's the one that's going to hell.
Claire: Well maybe I want him to take me with him.
Jack: Same shit, different day.
Claire: No it's not. You don't really think it's the same sun that rises every morning do you? There are 365 suns, a different one for each day.
Jack: What happens on a leap year? You stay in bed all day?
Claire: [smiles] Staying in bed doesn't hurt... much.
Jack: She looks at him again, then with a painful smile she switches off the light and leaves. The room is dark again. Claire is gone. The following day I asked her to wait for me, I never saw her again; I was arrested a few moments later. No doubt believing it was all another lie, she'd slit her wrists with a knife. As Charlie would say, the Gods are on my side; the police found her, saving her life just in time.
Jack: Did you read it?
Claire: Yeah, I did.
Claire: I don't blame you you know, I never did.
Claire: And going to the dark side of the moon wasn't the worst thing.
Jack: What was?
Claire: Going alone.
Jack: What are we gonna do? You're the smart one, help me out.
Claire: You do what all good writers do, you write a new book.
Jack: I've slept with more than 200 women.
Claire: [Laughs] 200? Well Will Chamberlin said he slept with 20,000, so that kinda makes you look like a punk.
Jack: You know something...You really have a dumb laugh.
Claire: Hey listen, just cause I'm talking to you doesn't mean that I'm on the market. I have a boyfriend.
Jack: Sure you do, He's probably one of those piss ant preppy motherfu**ers who sh**s his pants every time Daddy's check is a day late.
Claire: He loves me.
Jack: Oh he loves you...
Claire: I don't think that's anything you know about.
Jack: Loves just a 4 letter word...
Claire: You can't smoke in here.
Jack: Oh No?
[Pulls an ashtray out of his pocket and sets it on the table]
Jack: Now I can.
Claire: So what do you like? Besides smoking?
Jack: What do I like? Boxer who can hook off the jab. Oysters, Rockafeller. Rugrats. Anything that gives me a kick.
Claire: And you make a living out of that?
Jack: Uh huh, Not bad. Some nights I go out with Charlie and I rip off forigen business men. You should turn me into the police, you'd be doing the world a favor.
Claire: Its too late. Someone already did. I'm an undercover agent for the RICO squad.
