A Life Less Ordinary
Celine: Despite your crummy poem, I came to see you and all you could do was humiliate me and turn me away. I thought you were decent, but it turns out you're just a lying, cheating bastard like all the rest.
Celine: I'd like to make a withdrawal.
Robert: I thought we agreed there'd be no cliches.
Celine: If word got around that I had been liberated for half a million dollars, I could never show my face in polite society again. Diamonds have no value except that which is placed upon them.
Celine: I'm not interested in you, or your novel, or any other pathetic ambition you have to change your miserable, mundane existence.
Celine: "Kidnap For Beginners", Chapter One. Have you even asked for a ransom yet?
Celine: "Kill me but don't touch the girl." You should be on television.
Celine: Look, they weren't trying to kill you. They were trying to confuse you, and scare you.
Robert: Yeah, before they killed me.
Celine: Remember what they didn't teach you at Harvard Business school.
Robert: I didn't go to Harvard Business school!
Celine: That's a figure of speech, Robert.
Celine: So you're telling me that successful relationships... are made in heaven? Notfounded on the daily practicality... of two people being prepared... to tolerate the imperfections of one another?
Robert: It's not successful relationships, Celine. It's love. And it comes from a strange and wonderful place... that we don't know about.
Celine: So you also reject the idea... that love is merely an emotional adaptation... to a physical necessity?
Celine: Are you serious?
Robert: Fate intervenes in people's lives. In ours, for instance. Fate brought us together. It kept us together. We were destined for one another.
Celine: Fate had a pretty strange way of making its point.
Robert: But that's part of the beauty of it. It's inexplicable, unpredictable... and absolutely beyond control or understanding.
Celine: But you nearly got killed.
Robert: But I didn't... and here we are.
Celine: Do you have any substantial evidence to back all this?
Robert: None at all.
Celine: And you realize that it's absurd and irrational?
Robert: I know that.
Celine: Then why do you believe it?
Robert: Because, Celine, I'm a dreamer.
Celine: Well, I guess that makes two of us.
Robert: Are you ready?
Celine: As I'll ever be.
Robert: Then let's go.
Celine: What's wrong?
Robert: What's wrong, you crazy bitch, is I thought you were gonna shoot me! THAT'S what's wrong!
