More Last Chance Harvey quotes

Karen: Tell me, what would you do in my position?
Harry: What position is that?
Karen: Imagine your husband bought a gold necklace and come Christmas gave it to somebody else...
Harry: Oh, Karen...
Karen: Would you wait around to find out if it's just a necklace, or if it's sex and a necklace, or if worst of all it's a necklace and love? Would you stay, knowing life would always be a little bit worse? Or would you cut and run?
Harry: Oh, God. I am so in the wrong. The classic fool.
Karen: Yes, but you've also made a fool out of me, and you've made the life I lead foolish too.

More Love Actually quotes

Kate: You know I'm twice your age.
Jean-Baptiste Durain: What can I say? I like older women.
Kate: Why lie on your profile?

Kate: Look, we're just a disgruntled employee and his pushy wife who want back what's theirs.
Richard: You didn't say ex-wife.
