  • (Ethan Hawke) "What is love, if it's not respect, trust, admiration? And I felt all those things. So cut to the present tense: I feel like I'm running a small nursery with somebody I used to date."
  • (Ethan Hawke) "I don't have any permanent place here. You know, in eternity, or whatever. And the more I think that, I can't go through life saying that this is no big deal. I mean, this is it. This is actually happening. What do you think is interesting, what do you think is funny, what do you think is important? You know, every day is our last."
  • (Ethan Hawke) "At least now we don't have to pretend that each new sexual experience is a life-altering event."
  • (Julie Delpy) "I know. By now, you know, you've stuck it in so many places, it's like about to fall off."

  • (Julie Delpy) "Celine: I'm happy you're saying that, because -- I mean, I always feel like a freak, because I'm never able to move on like -- this. You know. People just have an affair, or even entire relationships -- they break up and they forget. They move on like they would have changed brand of cereals. I feel I was never able to forget anyone I've been with. Because each person have -- their own, specific qualities. You can never replace anyone. What is lost is lost. Each relationship, when it ends, really damages me. I never fully recover. That's why I'm very careful with getting involved, because -- It hurts too much. Even getting laid. I actually don't do that -- I will miss on the other person the most mundane things. Like I'm obsessed with little things. Maybe I'm crazy, but -- when I was a little girl, my mom told me that I was always late to school. One day she followed me to see why. I was looking at chestnuts falling from the trees, rolling on the sidewalk, or -- ants crossing the road, the way a leaf casts a shadow on a tree trunk -- Little things. I think it's the same with people. I see in them little details, so specific to each of them, that move me, and that I miss, and -- will always miss. You can never replace anyone, because everyone is made of such beautiful specific details. Like I remember the way, your beard has a bit of red in it. And how the sun was making it glow, that -- that morning, right before you left. I remember that, and -- I missed it. I'm really crazy, right?"
  • (Ethan Hawke) "Maybe what I'm saying is the world might be evolving the way a person evolves. Right? Like, me for example. Am I getting worse? Am I improving? I don't know. When I was younger, I was healthier, but I was whacked with insecurity. Now I'm older and my problems are deeper, but I'm more equipped to handle them."
  • (Ethan Hawke) "We're just living in a pretense of a marriage responsibility, and all these ideas of how people are supposed to live."
  • (Ethan Hawke) "Maybe what I'm saying is, is the world might be evolving the way a person evolves. Right? Like, I mean, me for example. Am I getting worse? Am I improving? I don't know. When I was younger, I was healthier, but I was, uh, whacked with insecurity, you know? Now I'm older and my problems are deeper, but I'm more equipped to handle them."
  • (Ethan Hawke) "There's gotta be something more to love than commitment."
  • (Ethan Hawke) "I'm designed to feel slightly dissatisfied."
  • (Ethan Hawke) "Life's hard. It's supposed to be. If we didn't suffer, we wouldn't learn a thing."
