Juan Antonio: Well, now that the day's almost over, is it reasonable of me to ask you if you'll both join me in my room?
Vicky: Oh, come on, I thought we'd settled that.
Cristina: Vicky's just trying to say that she's engaged to be married, that's all.
Juan Antonio: Great. Then these are her last days of freedom.
Vicky: No. Look, I'm not free. I'm committed. You know what my theory is? And when I drink, I get brutally frank. I think that you're still hurting from the failure of your marriage to Maria Elena, and you're trying to lose yourself in empty sex.
Juan Antonio: Empty sex? Do you have such a low opinion of yourself?
When Vicky and Cristina arrive at Barcelona they walk towards the camera, and the people behind who are real passengers waiting for a taxi stare at the actresses and film crew and even take pictures of them.
Penelope Cruz won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Maria Elena, even though she only has 15 minutes of screen time.
