A Good Year
Uncle Henry Skinner: The thing is, Max old boy, I’m dying. I know this because, uh, Dr. Karr, my physician, has stopped talking about my health and begun discussing the weather.
Uncle Henry Skinner: You’ll come to see that a man learns nothing from winning. The act of losing, however, can elicit great wisdom. Not least of which is, uh… how much more enjoyable it is to win. It’s inevitable to lose now and again. The trick is not to make a habit of it.
Fanny Chenal: [to Max Skinner] I’m sorry, I’m too busy to ignore you now.
Max Skinner: This place does not suit my life.
Fanny Chenal: No Max, it’s your life that does not suit this place.
Fanny Chenal: There’s something you should know about me, Max. I’m very, very choosy… I’m also very, very suspicious; very, very irrational, and I have a very, very short temper. I’m also extremely jealous and slow to forgive. Just so you know.
Fanny Chenal: Don’t waste my time. Choose something we have.
Max Skinner: I would like a lifetime spent with an irrational and suspicious goddess, some short-tempered jealousy on the side, and a bottle of wine that tastes like you, a glass that’s never empty.
