We need to talk.
Wow. We need to talk, huh? Are you sure you're at a safe-enough distance?
Was... Was I just a poor, like, charity case for you, Karen? I mean, let's-save-the-homo type thing? I mean, I know my mom asked you to teach me...
...let's, let's, let's not get too close, okay, because YOU just might catch something, right?

This was a great movie, it really depicted the way things were in the 80's. The story was a amazing it is so easy to get lost in the script. The ending really does bring the movie together. It movie gets better every minute, you spend the whole time wanting to know the characters and what is going to happen to them. It is an amazing movie, I can't wait until the movie is out on DVD so I can have my own copy that I can watch whenever I want. It is truly an amazing film, it is defiantly one of the bet movies that I have seen in a long time. I would love for this movie to be show in the theaters in a wide release or at least in a limited release.
