“Look, Jack… I have to look at you and be sure. I mean, if that is a mask… take it off now, or keep it on forever. If you want to keep secrets
God knows you’re entitled
but please don’t try to confuse me. ‘Cause it’ll only… confuse me.”
Hart Bochner & Colin Firth in Apartment Zero (1988)
“I couldn’t help it. I had to find out where I went wrong. The years I’ve spent… trying to get all the things I was told were important… that I was supposed to want! Things! Not people… or meaning. Just… things. And California was the same. They… made the same decisions for me all over again… and they were the same things, really. It’s gonna be different from now on. A new face, a new name. I’ll do the rest. I know it’s gonna be different.”
Rock Hudson in
Seconds(1966) dir. John Frankenheimer
You’re going to go through life thinking that girls don’t like you because you’re a nerd. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that won’t be true. It’ll be because you’re an asshole.
