BEST FILM QUOTE OF THE YEAR
"Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange" from Inception
"Dating you is like dating a StairMaster. It's exhausting." from The Social Network
"Because this isn't about connection for you. This isn't even about sex for you. This is about finding an hour or two of relief from the pain of being you. And that's fine with me, see, because all I want is the exact same thing." from Love and Other Drugs
"Youth is wasted on the young. I'd go further. I'd go: Life is wasted on people." from Greenberg
"Marriage is hard... Just two people slogging through the shit, year after year, getting older, changing. It's a fucking marathon, okay? So, sometimes, you know, you're together for so long, that you just... You stop seeing the other person. You just see weird projections of your own junk. Instead of talking to each other, you go off the rails and act grubby and make stupid choices." from The Kids Are All Right
