I think you’re really beautiful and I feel really warm when I’m around you and my tongue swells up.
So… do you wanna eat food?
You never see the hard days in a photo album, but those are the ones that get you from one happy snap shot to the next.
What are you doing here?
You die, I die.
Oh. Okay, guys, come on. Let’s go, seriously. We can do that later.
You fight until one of you can’t anymore.
Or until one of you concedes.
A brave man never backs down.
Lucky for you, that wasn’t a rule when we fought.
That’s why I don’t have no partner, that’s one thing I learned from my daddy.
Your father was a policeman?
Fifteen years LAPD.
My daddy also a policeman.
Your daddy was a cop?
Not a cop, an officer, a legend all over Hong Kong.
My daddy a legend too all over America. My daddy once arrested fifteen people in one night by himself.
My daddy arrested 25 by himself.
…My daddy once saved five crackheads from a burnin’ building, by himself.
My daddy once caught a bullet with his bare hand.
My daddy’ll kick your daddy’s ass all the way from here to China, Japan, wherever the hell you from and all up that Great Wall too.
Hey, don’t talk about my father.
Don’t talk about my daddy.
Christina ’Chris’ Cotter:
[sitting on the dock next to each other looking out at the ocean]
I’ll be asleep, and all the sudden there he is, that big smile. You know that smile. And I say, ’Hey, Bobby – where you been?’ but he won’t tell me. He just smiles and says, ’Remember, Christina: I’ll always love you; I loved you the moment I saw you; I love you now; and I love you forever. There’s no goodbyes – there’s only love, Christina; only love. Then he’s gone. But he’s always happy when he goes so I know he’s got to be okay – absolutely okay.
[holds her hand]
I love your dream.
The fog’s just lifting. Throw off your bow line; throw off your stern. You head out to South channel, past Rocky Neck, Ten Pound Island. Past Niles Pond where I skated as a kid. Blow your air-horn and throw a wave to the lighthouse keeper’s kid on Thatcher Island. Then the birds show up: black backs, herring gulls, big dump ducks. The sun hits ya – head North. Open up to 12 – steamin’ now. The guys are busy; you’re in charge. Ya know what? You’re a goddam swordboat captain! Is there any thing better in the world?
[Talking about the rivalry between the Barden Bellas and Das Sound Machine]
This could be the most significant conflict between America and Germany in history!
…Crack a book, John.
Tell me something I can hold on to forever and never let go.
