  • "Of course I love you. I’m giving up my life to be with you, aren’t I?"
  • "Go home, take a paper bag and cut some eyeholes out of it. Put it over your head, get undressed and look at yourself in the mirror. Really evaluate where your strengths and weaknesses are. And be honest."
  • "If you don’t like what is being said, then change the conversation."
  • "No one will tell you this, but you can’t be a man. Don’t even try. Be a woman."
  • "I have been watching my life. It’s right there. I keep scratching at it, trying to get into it. I can’t."
  • "Well, one day you’re there and then all of a sudden there’s less of you. And you wonder where that part went, if it’s living somewhere outside of you, and you keep thinking maybe you’ll get it back. And then you realize, it’s just gone."
  • "You have everything. And so much of it."
  • “Can you keep it down? I’m trying to drink.”
  • “But that’s life. One minute you’re on top of the world, the next minute some secretary’s running you over with a lawnmower.”
  • “Look, I want to tell you something because you’re very dear to me and I hope you understand it comes from the bottom of my damaged, damaged heart."
  • “I don’t care what your politics are, this is America. You don’t just shoot the President.”

  • "Don't ever try to sell me on anything. Give me all the information and I'll make my own decisions."
  • "People tell you who they are but we ignore it because we want them to be who we want them to be."
  • "You're lonely? Get a cat. They live thirteen years, then you get another one and another one after that. Then you're done."
  • "Am I the only one who can work and drink at the same time?"
