Melvin Udall: I've got a really great compliment for you, and it's true.
Carol Connelly: I'm so afraid you're about to say something awful.
Melvin Udall: Don't be pessimistic, it's not your style. Okay, here I go: Clearly, a mistake. I've got this, what - ailment? My doctor, a shrink that I used to go to all the time, he says that in fifty or sixty percent of the cases, a pill really helps. I *hate* pills, very dangerous thing, pills. Hate. I'm using the word "hate" here, about pills. Hate. My compliment is, that night when you came over and told me that you would never... All right, well, you were there, you know what you said. Well, my compliment to you is, the next morning, I started taking the pills.
Carol Connelly: I don't quite get how that's a compliment for me.
Melvin Udall: You make me want to be a better man.
Carol Connelly: ...That's maybe the best compliment of my life.
Melvin Udall: Well, maybe I overshot a little, because I was aiming at just enough to keep you from walking out.
Cheryl: You're a fully-fledged male Homo sapien endowed with a handsome and substantial penis, which now has a proven track record.
Cheryl: I'm going to rub the tip of your penis around my vulva. And when it's ready, I'll guide you in. Breathe slowly and think of something delicious.
Frank: Why are you talking so fast?
April Epner: Because I don't think Jimmy Ray should know that I'm here.
Frank: Well if we're going to be family he should probably know he didn't just dream you up half-naked in his house and besides he knows you're here.
April Epner: No he doesn't! I was very careful to wait until he was a safe distance away.
Jimmy Ray: Hi, Ms. Epner.
April Epner: Hi, Jimmy Ray.
April Epner: There is a Jewish story, an ordinary Jewish joke. A father was teaching his little son to be less afraid, to have more courage. "Jump," he said, "and I'll catch you." And the little boy trusted him, and the little boy jumped. And when his father caught him, he felt filled with love. And when he didn't, he was filled with something else, something... more: life. Amen.
