La La Land (I) (2016)
Ryan Gosling: Sebastian
Sebastian : They worship everything and they value nothing.
Sebastian : I'm letting life hit me until it gets tired. Then I'll hit back. It's a classic rope-a-dope.
Sebastian : Alright, I remember you. And I'll admit I was a little curt that night.
Mia : "Curt?"
Sebastian : Okay, I was an asshole. I can admit that. But requesting "I Ran" from a serious musician, it's just, it's too far.
Mia : My Lord, did you just say "a serious musician?"
Sebastian : I don't think so.
Mia : Can I borrow what you're wearing?
Sebastian : Why?
Mia : Because I have an audition next week. I'm playing a serious firefighter.
Sebastian : So you're an actress? I thought you looked familiar. Have I seen you in anything?
Mia : Uhh, the coffee shop on the Warner Brothers lot, that's a classic.
Sebastian : Oh I see.
Mia : Yeah.
Sebastian : So you're a barista? And I can see how you could then look down on me from all the way up there.
Sebastian : I guess I'll see you in the movies.
Sebastian : You're a barista? I can see how you can look down on me from all the way up there.
Sebastian : I thought you wanted me to do this, it just sounds like now you don't want me to do it.
Mia : What do you mean, I wanted you to do this?
Sebastian : This is what you wanted for me.
Mia : To be in this band?
Sebastian : To be in a band, to have a steady job, you know to be... you know.
Mia : Of course, I wanted you to have a steady job so that you could take care of yourself and your life and you could start your club.
Sebastian : Yeah, so I'm doing that, so I don't understand like why aren't we celebrating?
Mia : Why aren't you starting your club?
Sebastian : You said yourself no one wants to go that club. No one wants to go to a club called 'Chicken on a Stick.'
Mia : So change the name!
Sebastian : Well, no one likes jazz, not even you!
Mia : I do like jazz now because of you!
Sebastian : I want to let you know you're looking at a new man. A man who's happy to be here.
Boss : Right, and you'll play the set list.
Sebastian : Gladly... Although, you know, I thought in this town it worked on a sort of "one for you, one for me" basis type system. How about two for you, one for me?
Sebastian : How about all for you and none for me?
Boss : That's perfect, yes.
Sebastian : Great.
Boss : Okay.
Sebastian : Okay, a mutual decision then.
Boss : Made by me.
Sebastian : Right, and I sign off on it, so...
Boss : Whatever. Tell yourself what you want to know.
Sebastian : Pisi-kaka!
Sebastian : [about jazz] It's conflict and it's compromise, and it's just... it's new every time. It's brand new every night. It's very, very exciting!
