Quotes 

  • Karen : [narrating]  He had taken her life, and with that, her mother's heart, and her father's mind, and now, all that remained of Maureen was a tree in her mother's garden.

  • Lanny Morris : I left you a note.

    Karen : Where?

  • Karen : [voice in her head]  What have they done?

    [narrating, ominously] 

    Karen : Once upon a time, when terrible things happened to people, they were left as a mystery. Even the tabloids kept a distance. Some things... were allowed to be left just the way they were...

  • Vince : [as she comes to, he is drinking tea]  Morning.

    Karen : That was not a Quaalude you gave me. I've had Quaaludes.

    Vince : Hmmm. I said it was like a Quaalude.

    Karen : And you didn't take one yourself, you palmed the pill.

    Vince : [smirking]  Somebody had to drive.

    [puts down his tea-cup] 

    Vince : Don't worry, you won't get pregnant. Not from Alice, and certainly not from me. I didn't take off my pants, as you may or may not remember.

    [she looks at him in dismay]

    Karen : Why would she agree to do this? Doesn't she want a career?

    Vince : Well, it's your career I'm worried about. You're a journalist playing loose with the rules. She's just a vulnerable young singer you seduced. A promising

    [looking at a snapshot:] 

    Vince : oh, good heavens...! A promising artist that I happen to manage. You met her through me, and had your way with her.

    [peeks at her past a Polaroid] 

    Karen : [scoffing softly in distaste]  What do you want from me?

    Vince : You're gonna continue writing the book. I'm gonna continue telling you juicy stories, funny stories, heart-tugging stories, and you're not gonna ask me a single question about what happened to the girl in New Jersey. You're gonna go to your publisher and say you tried every angle, but you could find nothing odd or suspicious in what I told you.
