More The Joneses quotes

Brian Kessler: I'll never know why Early Grayce became a killer. I don't know why any of them did. When I looked into his eyes I felt nothing, nothing. That day I learned that any one of us is capable of taking another human life. But I also learned there is a difference between us and them: it's feeling remorse. Dealing with guilt. Confronting a conscience. Early never did.

Brian Kessler: You know, I didn't know this about you, I didn't know you were so prejudice.
Carrie Laughlin: Oh please, because when someone takes of their shoe and scratches their foot while I'm eating and you call me prejudice?
Brian Kessler: He can't help the way he was raised. I kinda feel sorry for him.
Carrie Laughlin: You feel sorry for him. That's so sweet. You obviously didn't get a whiff of that sock.
Brian Kessler: Bitch, bitch, bitch.

Brian Kessler: When you dream there are no rules. People can fly. Anything can happen. Sometimes there's a moment as you're waking and you become aware of the real world around you, but you are still dreaming. You may think you can fly but you better not try.

Brian Kessler: I remember once going on a school trip to the top of the Empire State Building. When I looked down at the crowds of people on the street they looked like ants. I pulled out a penny and some of us started talking about what would happen if I dropped it from up there and it landed on someone's head. Of course I never crossed that line and actually dropped the penny. I don't think Early Grayce even knew there was a line to cross.
