Lauren King: That's why I wanted to go to Venice. Not just to run away. But so we could kiss under the Bridge of Sighs - at sunset - when the bells tolled. The way the Brownings did. And then we could love each other for ever.
Kay King: She spent the whole time reading a book. Well, don't you think a child her age would be more interested in watching a movie being made?
Richard King: It depends on the book.
Daniel Michon: ...that legend is just another one of your damn lies.
Julius: You could make it true. What are legends anyway but stories about ordinary people doing extraordinary things? Of course, it takes courage and imagination... not everybody has that. I may be an old fraud Daniel, but I do know this: something that two people who are in love create together against impossible odds, can hold them together... forever.
Natalie Woodstein, Lauren's dorky friend: You don't know what love is like until you've fallen for your cousin.
Julius: The legend is true.
Lauren King: Heidegger isn't all that hard. I mean, his stuff is mostly etymological. You know, like, why is there something rather than nothing at all.
Julius: If I could pick horses, I wouldn't have to pick pockets.
Londet: Great boobs.
Daniel Michon: All this... and you look at that?
Londet: You look at what you like. I'll look at what I like.
