Beautiful Boy (I) (2018)
Steve Carell: David Sheff
David Sheff : So how you doing?
Nic Sheff : I'm doing great, you know, just, um... um... just doing what needs to be done, and...
David Sheff : What does that mean?
Nic Sheff : I'm sorry, Dad, um...
David Sheff : Why don't we just have lunch and talk? We can do that, right? Please. You think that you have this under control.
Nic Sheff : I understand why I do things. It doesn't make me any different. I'm attracted to craziness, and you're just embarrassed 'cause I was like... you know, I was like this amazing thing, like your special creation or something, and you don't like who I am now!
David Sheff : Yeah? Who are you, Nic?
Nic Sheff : This is me, Dad! Here, this is who I am!
David Sheff : This is not you! This is not you, Nic!
Nic Sheff : What are you doing, huh? You always gotta be controlling everything all the time!
David Sheff : Let me book you a room at a hotel for a couple nights.
Nic Sheff : No, Dad. No, Dad, I want it to go like this.
David Sheff : Do you know how much I love you? If you could take all the words in the language, it still wouldn't describe how much I love you. And if you could gather all those words together, it still wouldn't describe what I feel for you. What I feel for you is everything. I love you more than everything.
David Sheff : You can not say dumb shit like that, or you're gonna start believing it.
David Sheff : [Nic sees his father's work on the desk] He will sometimes send you funny emails. He prefers spaghetti over penne. Have you seen my son? Have you seen my beautiful boy? Tell him I miss him.
David Sheff : Jasper's savings disappeared.
Nic Sheff : Yeah? That's weird.
David Sheff : Did you take his eight dollars?
Nic Sheff : What?
David Sheff : You heard me.
Nic Sheff : Why would I?
David Sheff : It disappeared, and somebody has to have done it.
Nic Sheff : Right, so it's me. This is fucking ridiculous.
David Sheff : Are you using again?
David Sheff : Are you high right now?
Nic Sheff : What the f...? No. Fuck you.
David Sheff : *Fuck you*? Don't talk to me that way. Are you high right now?
Nic Sheff : No.
David Sheff : You're not using right now? Are you using?
Nic Sheff : No, Dad, I'm not fucking high right now!
David Sheff : Okay.
David Sheff : [David Sheff] The Feeling of Alienated and Isolated. It will pass... Right?
David Sheff : There are moments that I look at him, this kid that I raised, who I thought I knew inside and out, and I wonder who he is. He's been doing all sorts of drugs, but he's addicted to crystal meth, which seems, uh, to be the worst of all of them. And I guess I'm here because I just want to know all that I can about all of it. Know your enemies, right? So, my two big questions are, what is it doing to him, and what can I do to help him?
