Sam: You’ve grown.
Lucy: Have I?
Sam: Yeah, ’cause your ears are bigger and your eyes are older.
Rita: Now, Ms. Cossell, in all the time that you’ve known them, have you
ever questioned Sam’s ability as a father?
Annie: Never. Look at Lucy. She’s strong. She displays true empathy for
people, all kinds of people. I know that you all think she’s as smart as
she is despite him, but it’s because of him.
Rita: So what you’re saying is you don’t worry about Lucy’s future?
Annie: No, I do.
Annie: I worry all the time. I worry if they take Lucy away from her
father they will take away an enormous piece of her, and I worry that
she will spend the rest of her life trying to fill that hole.
Conner Rhodes: Are you a retard too?
Conner Rhodes: How do you know?
Lucy: Because he told me.
Conner Rhodes: But he’s a retard!
Lucy: It takes one to know one.
Sam: You think what they think.
Rita: It doesn’t matter what I think. It matters that we win.
Sam: No, you think what they think. You think Sam can’t take care of
Rita: Sam, it doesn’t matter what I think!
Sam: It matters to me!
Lucy: All you need is love.
Sam: OK, remember when Paul McCartney wrote the song “Michelle” and then
he only wrote the first part, Annie said. And then he gave that part to
John Lennon, and he wrote the part that said, “I love you, I love you, I
love you.” And Annie said that it wouldn’t have been the same song
without that… and that’s why the whole world cried when the Beatles
broke up on April 10, 1970.
Lucy: Why are men bald?
Sam: Sometimes they’re bald because their head is shiny and they don’t
have hair on it. So their head is just more of their face.
Joe: Do we get a balloon with these?
Shoe Salesman: …Yeah
Robert: All of us or just her?
Rita: Can you grasp the concept of manipulating the truth… not lying,
just a little tweak here and there?
Sam: [thinks for a few seconds] No.
Sam: YOU’RE MY LAWYER!
Rita: That’s right.
Lucy: [being observed] I want no other daddy but you.
[turns to the glass]
Lucy: [shouts] Did you hear that? I said I didn’t want any other daddy
but him. Why don’t you write that down?
