Martin Scorsese: can you imagine if Taxi Driver made a billion dollars at the box office? 
Jodie Foster: i'd be messed up. MORE messed up. i somehow managed to navigate being a child star...
Martin: why do people like dumb explosions more than art?

Sunday Scaries: not fear of blacking out and not remembering, not fear of not being sober, fear of school on Monday...

The Simpsons staff: it's depressing working on this show now. every Sunday night we scan the evening paper waiting for the next celebrity to die so we can place his name and Simpson-fied character on a black obituary card at episode's end...

Betty White: i'm in that Jane's music video, too, dancing.
Laertus's dad: no that's the Pic-N-Save corner mart from my childhood. i stole a bottle of Vanquish from there.
Laertus: i always thought that video ended outside in the night...

Jillian: burnt toast.

Kakashi scrolling an actual scroll made of beige paper: the Smurf monks gave me this scroll to keep track of things. okay let's see here. next on the list. oh this'll be an EASY quest this week! it's just peppermint and thyme! easily available and ready!
Suzy Lu: don't be so sure, babe. Christmas is over, no more peppermint.
Kakashi: let me visit Mrs. Claus again...

but after everything that happened, all the scandal in the snow, Mrs. Claus was not at the North Pole anymore, the divorce happened, she absconded with her peppermint walking cane. she ran way with an elf but that was frowned upon in 47 countries so she remains a fugitive...

Kakashi: an elf blew me for the peppermint. he said my ninja cock reminded him of a curved peppermint cane. 
Suzy Lu: you can't be a coward about it, mate. every man and woman on this green Earth has had their dick sucked. what were you thinking about during the blowjob? me?
Kakashi: no i kept thinking about that LOVELY picture of Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and Steve Blum alone together on a volcano in Hawaii, that picture gives us ALL hope.
Suzy: right, the world is doomed but we always have to remember that this OTP SUPERCOUPLE OF ALL TIME is still in the world!!! living their lives, spreading their anime magic.

Kakashi: as for thyme, i'm pooped after that. time stood still for me there. after a rest i reached my dead father in the underworld. he didn't give me any advice about the Exact Nature of Time, he just wanted me to tell him another damn story by the campfire. my story was called Exact Nature Of Time but it was just a song played on a kanji...

Kakashi: when he wasn't looking i pulled down my dad's pants. that sent such a shock into that outside room it jolted Time back to some semblance of normalicy. Time became the time. the time became normal time. i got it, i got it Now.

Maiara Walsh and Mesay are squatting outside in front of the Ewok Copper Bubble high up in the treehouse high up in the tree in Smurf Forest. all the Ewoks are gathered round. the couple wear matching black jeans with frayed holes at the knees. 
Ewoks: how smurfy!
Mesay: you are too good-looking, Maiara. no i'm serious, i can't look at your face. when i look at your face my face starts shaking.
Maiara: Mesay and i just came back from taking in a film, I Carry You With Me. it was rapturous and romantic and about the sexiest language of them all, Spanish. Spanish is second, Portuguese is primera. Mexican is multitudinous. Portuguese is pretty. we all strive for a love like those two Mexican men. who at one time or another had to hide each other inside their bodies to cross the border.
Mesay: Mai i can't take it, you tempt me when you slap your butt. cos you're slapping a Brazil butt!
Maiara: we invited the Ewoks into our bedroom, our love chamber in there, to witness our lovemaking. because i believe in teaching the universe love. the Ewoks generously offered in recompense glass bottles of their...oh god is this?...this is blue milk, right? not blue cum? like you we have reached the end of the quest and seek new adventure. new roads. we have crossed the rubicon threshold of Blowing Up The Death Star, now what?

Mesay hands Maiara a stick.
Mesay: hold onto the other end of this stick.
the stick flies up into the sky with the two holding on...it was an acrobat's stick...

Mesay: what are your resolutions?
Maiara: yeah now see i have a different definition of time than you. and everyone else. i don't think like that. i don't separate years into 2021 and 2022. goals. objectives. i see time as one continuous throughway...

Maiara: ...you can't be a coward about it, you must see time as a continuous throughway where we're always improving ourselves.........

Eye Luggage: what were we talking about again?
Paul Thomas Anderson: oh the lead singer of Hum and i were just hanging out...
Cooper Hoffman: the greatest day of your life is when you meet your future wife.
Alana: who are you referring to here? Kane or Haim?...

Eye: Breaking the Waves and go.
Mitchell Goosen: ...
Lars von Trier: i'm an atheist but it's a miracle this thing got made. i lost interest in it right after we started shooting.
Laertus: yeah see that's the deathknell pun intended. that's the WORST time to lose interest. lose interest before the project gets funded by a ship captain. or AFTER the thing is in post-production sitting in some edit bay in the ocean. but not as the actors are just learning their lines...

Helena Bonham Carter: without me Emily Blunt has no career...
Eye Luggage: yeah that surprised me. why did you turn this down? you're supposed to be the strong goth queen soldier-warrior who cannot be bothered. cannot be fazed. it was just a little nudity.
Helena: yeah but it was Lars nudity.
Adam Sandler: i pray to Fuerza everyday to force serious directors to look directly into my eyes...

Emily Blunt: sorry but i was laughing throughout this while making of. especially when i said the word prick. it's such a dainty childish naive way to say penis. i'm half-laughing as i say it.
Emily: prick.
Eye, holding her belly: *giggling*

Takahashi: oh i love public pay-phones dotting the countryside! phone booths all along the rolling hills. waiting for a public-phone call. waiting for a public phone to ring. 

Stellan Skarsgard: now do you recognize me? no not He-Man. i'm that guy at the end of Nymphomaniac! yeah! the asexual. man that ending was depressing! i coulda been a hero to a very misrepresented community! i was an atheist WAY BEFORE Lars. my ex is named My but i don't own her...
Megan Everett: the vasectomy tho. why? i wanted to have MANY children with you. the sex just isn't the same...
Stellan: sorry, Megan, but Eight Is Enough.

Lars: honestly if it had to be Scotland i really just wanted to do a movie on the origins of golf...

Katrin Cartlidge: we HAVE to talk me now. right? i'm the center stage to this whole endeavor. the whole shebang. this is my coming-out party but it's a TRAGEDY that i didn't live, i was one of the best actors of my generation. i would have been a damn-good director the likes of Paul Thomas Anderson. Paulina!
Stellan: you were a bitch to me on set the whole time.
Katrin: i know, that was my character. 
Stellan: oh right, well in that case then right you were a good actress.
Katrin: i laid out sexy on my own terms. i looked up to the B&W sky. to find God to give my untimely end meaning.
Stellan: sorry, luv, no God.
Takahashi: Katrin, stick your beautiful nose in the spokes of the underbelly of this grey Nintendo cartridge.
Katrin sniffs.
Takahashi: there, now you'll live forever.

Gracie Gold: i'm not a bitch. if i hadn't snapped, if i wasn't snappy with the judges, i wouldn't have gotten myself out of suicidal ideation.

Laertus: i mean at least the psychiatry is more enlightened than the religion. but no shock beds.

Emily: this character is misogynistic.
Lars: no it's just me, remember? everyone misunderstands me. i'm not a misogynist, the self-sacrificing maiden who gives up her agency to help the men, this is the first time i'm writing a female lead...
Emily: i wasn't sure how to portray her, she had a disability? or was she just batty? mental or deeply religious? a bat or a believer? but with this performance i gave this heroine AGENCY. she was her own woman, strong inside. and as you'll see at the end, outside.

Lars: sorry but i like to have a bit of fun in my movies. i'm a jokester on set, prankster in periods. gotta have some comedy. that's why i bash the Calvinist religion, it's too damn serious. i made all religions phallocentric and dumb.

Dirg: that's your first clue: when you're talking to God and you have to do BOTH voices...

Bess: i'm childlike and impish.
Bjork: hey.

Mardith: hey that friend of the groom looks like that guy who was in that episode of Workaholics on Comedy Central...

Dodo: what? my name is Dodo? really? but i'm the sharp tack of this bunch. my dialogue is angry and flows like wine. i don't trust you. she's not right in the head.
Jan: she's stronger than either of us.
Bess: your husband died.
Dodo: i know, that's why i stay on this godforsaken rock of an island. being a nurse. for YOU. 
Stellan: no other man is gonna fuck you if you keep up with the holier-than-thou attitude.
Dodo: holier? but i'm a nurse. a scientist!

Mardith: that scream tho. when she screams at Jan hopping on the helicopter for work, that was a guttural scream. that was a pained shout. that was a visceral yell.
Emily: thank you.
Madame Pons: the relationship is not husband and wife, it's more like a twin flame. except Jan doesn't take it seriously. until it's too late. she simply CANNOT be separated from him.

Laertus: a metaphor for oil destroying the planet? i'm for this.
 
Lars: you gotta admit that's funny. black humour. i have Stellan in a full body-cast and he looks ridiculous.
Stellan: i didn't mind showing my penis to the world. that penis produced 8 lives. but that body cast STANK to high heaven!

Dodo: why'd you try to kill yourself?
Jan: i was just taking my Flintstone vitamins.
Dodo: we thought we had all had a laugh with that ridiculous wind-up toy and that meant we'd all live.

Madame Pons: that doctor does not belong in this film. the wavy-haired doctor, he belongs on a '70s soap. like Loving.
Dirg: that doctor has a LOT of will power. self-control. 
Mardith: because he actually loves her not lusts her.
Adrian Rawlins: it was easy. in my job i see so many naked bodies during the day i don't need any at night. it's not like i'm gay or anything...

Gladyce: ugh, typical men. firstly the husband who debases his own wife for his own puerile needs. and then all those childish men in those tugboats. 
Doryce: i mean they are longshoremen, what did you expect? 
Eye: at least they don't actually SHOW the rape. just her bruises.
Popeye: leave me out of this...

Dodo: don't listen to your husband! he swallows Flintstones vitamins! he doesn't crush them with a spoon first!

Bess: you cannot love words. you most love another human being, that's the path to God.
Laertus's dad: despite this, son, i accepted your path to becoming a screenwriter...

Eye: ugh, and that mob of children at the end harassing pestering the poor "town whore". just leave her alone, stop bullying her. she's got problems, man, deep problems. and it SUCKS to see a girl in that group. 

church elders: Bess cannot have a funeral. she left behind a too-beautiful corpse.

Laertus: not a fan of the different title cards with the progressive-rock music, it takes the audience out of it, interrupts the somber mood and atmosphere with dancing.
David Bowie: but...
Laertus: nevermind you're right Bowie.
David Bowie: sorry man but my song "Life on Mars" is a better fit for the last scene. it cuts with the landscape. the Scottish countryside is wild and untamed, the craggy hills, the brooks of stream. the muse of Romantic poets and writers. your song...
Elton John: is literally "Your Song".
Bowie: see? your song doesn't fit. the lyrics and everything. just doesn't fit.
Elton John: yeah you're right, Bowie.

Jan: medical technology, aye? it works wonders  i just had to wait to get past the '70s...

Dirg: whoa. those huge mason bells ringing up there in the sky with no strings, floating in the clouds, is creepy. Satanic. freakier than the fox.

Bess: *hits blunt* so what's it all about then. what is my character? what does she do? how does she get over on everyone including God? despite being a "simple" woman. easy. her love is UNBOUND. she will do anything. ANYTHING. to keep her love. we all must do the same. we cannot be poltroons in our own lives, scared to try new things. scared to get out of our comfort zone. there is no dignity only drive. infatuated instinct. there's no one else coming through that door. the poorhouse and divorce court and mortuary on the hill are always right around the corner mart. love is all that matters. sustaining love is all that matters...

Laertus: i learned something this week. i cannot make a movie. you need thousands of people, and thousands of dollars, and thousands of shipping crates of cough syrup to make a movie. even if you follow the stoic rules. you cannot just do a movie using yourself and your Bob Saget camcorder. g'night folks.

Bob Saget is who my dad would have been if he had gone into show business. exactly Bob Saget...

JULES SMITH!!!

i have to thank Jules Smith for everything. i was scared to tell stories again but she inspired me. i hadn't written anything of any serious import in 20 years, i was stuck deep down the darkest of black holes in my brainmind. i couldn't move from my bed, trapped was i under wrinkly ocean covers. the spark shall cum and it shall be blonde. i owe her my life, my love, and my career. she instilled happiness luck and fun back in my life. now if only somebody can show me what this joy thing is all about, wink wink...

* you're teasing me hard with the Brooklyn-style NYC pizza, Papa Johns. the original flat turtle. or rather the original turtle flat. you know there's no Papa Johns around here. and the only one that IS here only serves to military. you once offered me a jalapeno over the phone...

Elliott Smith: my final album was never meant to be a final album, that's why the songs in it are weird, they're not like "last" songs or dirges or dedications, they're just songs.
Fred Gwynne: that's my speaker. imagine Herman Munster as a cop...

HOLLYWOODLAND HOTEL: SAGGY (NO SWEET PIZZA ALLOWED)


 












Jacques Pepin: i use a razorblade but it's to make Crosses in breadloafs.
Kurt Cobain: ...
Jacques: i use bricks but it's not to throw at punks like you, it's to weigh bread down so it gets bathed in vegetable juices.
Kurt: ...
Kurt: i get bricks thrown at me on stage, with the lights out it's less dangerous.
Jacques: lozenges refer to square sandwiches, not Ricola. 
Kurt: i can't eat a sandwich unless it's traingle-cut. with the crusts on.

Preet Chandi: no pole jokes, Dirg.

Denver, the Last Dinosuar: i was discovered by Sasha Grey...
Morton Fizzback: i was played by Frank DiLeo...
Denver: you know why me and the kids all sat around every episode around the breakfast table eating cereal as we hashed out how to solve '80s problems? cos that's what the kids watching us were doing as they watched us, eating cereal.

Wetzel's Pretzels: not Mickey Mouse...

screlt: only Elphaba on Broadway does this.........and maybe Shrek at the Forest Theatre in Obec...

Dirg: women, don't wear dresses, wear pants, so we can see the butt.

Carole King: i'm a queen. on CNN but not Larry. i did "Too Late" first, sorry, Washed Out.

Tyzik: the iphone is the new Nintendo Entertainment System...

Jillian Clare: Berkeley Rep, Swept Away, January 9, count me in the boat, i'm going!
Laertus's dad: this is so FUCKING FRUSTRATING!!! that's what i should have done when i was enrolled at Berkeley, i should have done the theatre program at the Rep! but i didn't know what the Rep was! i was too in my head about all the English stuff, the English major stuff, the English Major stuff. think where i'd be now! i would have done one of those beautifully liberal plays once a week! covid or no covid the show must go on! i would have slept on stage! i wouldn't need all this Instagram shit! i would have met Jillian Clare! 
Jillian: Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, i don't need it, just thought i'd show it on Instagram as a laugh. a Betty White raunchy joke. you know, a sweet-song lark.
NoizeBoy: *pointing at Jillian* when you think of her butt, think of her tits.
Jillian: flaunt it, own it, be it.

Tim Kane: if i'm going to investigate the Capitol Riot i have to GET to the Capitol. nice try, I95.

Suzy Lu crashes New York Comic Con. like she literally crashes into the NYC building turning it from a skyscraper into a dome.

Suzy: HEY Y'ALL. WHATUP BITCHES. IT'S YA GIRL. BIG DICK ENERGY I MEAN LITTLE DICK ENERGY. CAN I GET A WHAT WHAT WHO WHO DOCTOR WHO?

Suzy: where my youtube viewers at? hey Kak where are all my followers?
Kakashi: they're screaming right now, Suzy Lu. give it a minute, pet.
Suzy: don't they like my grand entrance? i'm atop riding astride astead my pet Nessie loch ness monster! on top of her and i do stress HER tallest scale. the head alone crashed all the stadium windows. getting an S-curve in a cosplay costume is time-consumingly difficult.
Kakashi: yes. so the S looks natural not animatronic.

Kakashi: milady i mean babe i mean milady it's time for me to start my quest, the first two Ricola herbs: ribwort and lady's mantle. elder and marsh mallow don't count cos i always see the old lady who's the elder in our village fake that she's dead, she closes her eyes and never opens them, then winks at you internally. she's always out fishing in a small hole sawed out of the ice perfectly in a circle by Chilly Willy. 

Kakashi: I FOUND THEM!! the first one was easy, my life is full of warts, all the warts, i've done things.
Suzy: it's okay, babe.
Kakashi: so i pulled my own rib out of my body. not with a chakra.
Prince: like i did with my rib.
Kakashi: not to make woman, the woman takes man's rib and makes the first musical instrument, a bone flute.
Suzy: which ends up being slang for penis.

Suzy: and lady's mantle? i think i know this one. come on! it's just slang for vagina?!!!
Kakashi: that's what i thought at first, but then my dead dad talked to me in my ear. he has more experience. i traveled to the North Pole to visit Mrs. Claus.
Mrs. Claus: o what spirit spectre scythe has visited upon me this dayless night?
Kakashi: it is i. i will remove my mask, show you my face, and we will make love in a chimney.
Kakashi removes his mask.
Mrs. Claus: by the Norse Coke gods! curses me i can't see your beautiful face! it's all covered with a snow blizzard, all i see is a Santa beard...

Suzy: let me guess...
Kakashi: yup.
Suzy: cumsicles.

Aaron Rodgers: okay. fine. i shouldn't've hugged Erin Andrews maskless during our socially-distanced interview.........but we fucked on the team bus the night before so what's the big deal?

Eye Luggage: what were we talking about again? 
Erin Andrews: socially-distanced does not mean socially awkward.
Christine Ebersole: hi. remember me? from SNL. hello, my name is Lucy Doolittle...

Eye: Licorice Pizza and go.
Paul Thomas Anderson: an average outing. an average opus of mine all things considered.
KQED PBS: we got your back, Pauly! so does AMC on that status-symbol boat!
PTA: i'm not in this for the elite creativity. this is just a way for my wife Maya Rudolph and i to sit around the '70s yellow dingy shaggy rug of our mansion den and talk shop with our kids tots and toddlers. we must be steeped in black-and-white films at all times around the house, stereo-sound. i had to rush it out cos of covid. but at least i got the name right, it was gonna be Soggy Bottom
Doctor Who: in fairness that's a good name for a waterbed store. but this isn't a British film no matter how classy.
Laertus: *bowing* i love your sumptuous noir explorations of Los Angeles, sir.

kid inside Licorice Pizza at Sherman Oaks Galleria mall
manager: what are you doing, kid? why are you taking a white box full of merchandise out of the store?
kid: oh this is a record store? i saw the brown carpet and immediately assumed Orange Julius. so but like isn't this place going out of business soon?...

Alana Haim: i'm suddenly America's Sweetheart, the first one with a Jewish nose.
Dirg: you got a hot butt, i'll give you that. people didn't like this movie cos they thought you were a bitch who needed to be taken down a peg. as for the tits well i can only assume they're sleeper sweater tits cos we don't see them, that scene where you show them is a cop-out.
PTA: why am i directing music videos anyways? aren't i above all that by now?

Laertus: oh god here we go. the controversy. the Asian denigration. look i get it. this is his character, this is something his character would do would say would imitate at that time in this era in that cutthroat city. it's realism. but PTA HAD to know he was stepping in it with these scenes.
PTA: i did. yet i didn't.
Laertus: i mean as you're filming these scenes, as you're PRINTING these scenes, didn't you once go.........yeah maybe not such a good idea for a 2022 audience...

Cooper Hoffman: i was the PERFECT choice!
PTA: yes you were! i felt bad about your father, he was my shining star, my muse, for so many years. so i offer you now this movie as a chance for you to deal and heal. did it heal you?
Cooper: no. i still don't know why my dad did it.
PTA: it's okay, son. let me give you a bear hug. i mean you got your dad's DNA!!! you got the acting chops from him, man!!! you're a natural!!! i asked your dad one time how he was doing.........he talked about the divorce but said he was losing weight...

Sean Penn: was William Holden really this much of a pimp?

Tom Waits: so i'm playing myself?

Bradley Cooper: no relation. this was a trick. they were making it seem like this movie was all about ME. but i have a rather pedestrian glorified cameo. i threaten to kill a kid and hook up with '70s Emma Raducanu.
Madame Pons: sorry but Bradley Cooper can't act. i don't find his French charming.

John Michael Higgins: why do i have such a normal name? i'm gonna be easy to find dammit...

Harriet Sansom Harris: don't let Ebert fool you, I stole this show! 

George DiCaprio: i wasn't a sleazy father to Leo. there were never any waterbeds in the house. i did have a waterbed delivered to Don's Plum per my son's request...

John C Reilly: where's Rob Zombie?

Gary Goetzman: turns out i was a little prick as a kid.
PTA: you still are.

PTA: The Valley, no place like it...

Alana: looks like we got ourselves a real Elliott from E.T. over here.
Cooper: fuck school pictures, meet me at the Tail o' the Cock. let me save you the trouble: tail of the cock cocktail. it's like the Regal Beagle but real. 

Cooper: 2 Cokes. Erik Estrada? what are you doing here?
Erik: call me Ponch. a bar's no place for a kid. unless you're Dana Plato.
Cooper: it's a tavern.

Haim sisters and real mom and dad: we are not jealous of Alana.........we are not jealous of Alana.

Lucy: how DARE you hit my head! you hit it so hard my red hair turned back brown! they said no to Bedknobs & Broomsticks. they said no to Sound of Music. they said no to Peter Pan! so i'm stuck doing this Merv Griffin slop! i eat big boys like you for hamburger dinner!
Cooper: like my father i'm not fat.

Lance: i'm an atheist.
Alana: atheist, Jewish, same thing. we can get married, right poppop?
father: why?
Lance: Vietnam was the last straw, sorry, God. i'm too handsome to reject, i look like a young Sly Stallone and i don't ride a bike. plus my name is Skyler Gisondo, that's the sweetest-sounding name of all time. 
Alana: show me your penis.
Lance: to confirm that i'm circumcised?
Alana: no i just want to see your penis, then i don't have to go through the hassle of dating and going to boring dinners and stuff.

Gary: *smirking* Alana, anal.
Alana: stop, Gary.
Gary: does that get you hot?
Alana: uh, no. i keep forgetting you're 15.

Laertus: everyone has had that heartbreaking scene where you call someone on the phone and don't say anything, you just wait for them to pick up and you start breathing. the girl on the other end doesn't know when the appropriate time to hang up is. your heart aches so much you don't know what to say to her.
Eye: everyone had those experiences during corded-phone times anyway...

Cooper: what's with the waterbed thing tho?
PTA: remember Mattress Man Commercial from Punch Drunk Love? your dad was a classic!

Dirg: why are these two crazy kids so interested in being COOL? as if suddenly being cool was the only thing that mattered in life...

Laertus: so there's this rather whimsical scene here where the two start running, just running, it's not connected to anything in the story. it's like they're running apart from the film, in a symbolic way.
PTA: bingo. there's a lot of running in my films. take Punch Drunk Love, all the running there is replaced with swimming to Hawaii.

Harriet Sansom Harris: do you do topless?
Alana: no.
HSH: but you just said you were in the Israeli Army where you can kill a man by placing a paperclip under his eyelid, you'll be fine if anyone messes with you.

Gary Valentine: i'm running to you again, Alana.
Alana: very Hollywood name by the way. to see if i was hurt?
Cooper: no to see if i can interest you in golf lessons. most married couples met on the golf course.
Alana: i had to learn how to drive a golf cart for this?

Jimmy Carter: don't blame me, it wasn't my fault. everyone thought the world was coming to an end in the 1970s. it's not like it is now but it was kinda like the Bubonic Plague back in the day.

Jon Peters: Barbra Streisand. i'm not stressed. Barbra Stars-In-My-Eyes...

Laertus; yeah now see this is where it goes wonky. the whole long protracted sequence with the driving of the truck backwards, it was just kind of boring, this was meant to be the big action scene in the movie but it just didn't land.
Eye: maybe that truck needed to be blue and tiny and cute and 1-800-GOT-JUNK.
Alana: i learned to drive a truck for this?
Dirg: i did like Gary simulating drinking cum from the gas-can stem against the backdrop of a sunrise, that was kinda cool. 
Bradley Cooper: hey you girls liked King Richard?
Venus and Serena: kinda glossed over the bad stuff dad did...

Cooper: remember, kids, back in the day pinball was like heroin. no not like it was addicting, like it was illegal.

Alana: scram, creep.
loiterer: it's a free country. i'm wearing John Lennon glasses, i'm immune from your criticism. i'm skinny, i can stand anywhere i want. i died for this country in Vietnam, i don't want any gays in my mayorships.

Alana: that's me, a beard in the rain...
Laertus: okay this scene is very well done, the actor who portrays Joel Wachs's secret gay lover is VERY good here, communicating his hurt feelings, i felt his pain, the pain of being invisible, unseen, disregarded, taken for granted, not really loved, a prop, cast off when the goal is reached.
Eye: yes. HE steals the show!
Laertus: hey all boyfriends are dicks huh.
Eye: yes.
Laertus: then why do you put up with us?
Eye, looking lovingly askance at Laertus: cos some of them are at least trying.

PTA: and now the two run TOWARD each other. hey did you miss that right there? that little detail? Alana stands below the arcade-bright-light matinee bulbs-sign and it says OPEN 24 HOURS.
Alana: what are you implying? that i'm a slut? 
PTA: no your LOVE is open 24 hours...

Dirg: ummmmmm.........so it's still weird, right? i mean they kiss and she tells him she loves him but she's still 25 and he's still 15.........so it's weird, right?  

Laertus: this is very sweet. and stirring. and sunken. and saudade. and nostalgic. the pain of first love. Gary TRULY believes this is the woman he'll marry someday, this is his wife he's looking at. he laughs and scoffs at all her rude jokes, her biting remarks, cos he sees past her front into her soul. he can deal with a little ribbing and humiliation if it means seeing her soft side she doesn't show anyone, seeing her on her other side. it's all roleplay in the end i guess. Gary calls her Alana VALENTINE.

Laertus: i imagine a scene not in the script where Gary becomes so used to having Alana by his side, he's so attached to her, it becomes instinct. whenever he goes to a watering hole, or a waterbed store, he starts his speaking with the phrase

Alana and i

Alana and i were thinking about getting this waterbed

Alana and i would like 2 Cokes, please.

he simply cannot talk with his lips with his mouth any other way. he will start each sentence he says with the word Alana the rest of his days. g'night folks.
