A jackhammer? On Saturday? He should be castrated!
A tiny little cluster of brain tumors.
All right, look, Cornell, just give me a pill, gimme me a shot, gimme a, I dunno, gimme a lobotomy, gimme…
And I have this dog and I don’t even think he likes me!

Andrea’s ‘one more time’ was what killed her.
Andrea, I love ya, bon voyage, but I’m not kissing Gary.
Are we all fixed now?
But, oh, my tiny clusters!
Cake store, cake store, cake store
Cake store. Cake store. Cake store.
Chocolate. Heroin addict.
Come on, there’s 20 minutes left ’til curfew. Come on, let’s go get some ice cream. Satisfy that sugar craving of yours.
Come to Papa!
Confront me if I don’t ask for help…
Don’t be someone else’s slogan because you are poetry.
Don’t be someone else’s slogan, because you are poetry.
Don’t call me pal, I’m not your pal
Don’t ever be someone’s slogan, because you are poetry.
Don’t worry about Daniel. He’s just all self-conscious about that neck thing because he did it to himself. He had this thing at night where he’d actually pump his own stomach so he wouldn’t get a hangover. I guess he knew how, because, you know, he’s a doctor. Or was. He lost his license after he killed that patient, but…anyway, I guess one night while he was scraping that tube down to his stomach…somehow he screwed up and he couldn’t breathe and he had to poke a hole in his throat with a pen or something…
Don’t worry, I’ll replace it.
Drunk men stagger drunk men fall, drunk men swear and thats not all, quite often they will urinate outdoors, like widowed women grown men weep, like children curled up drunk men sleep, like a dog a drunk will crawl around on all fours.
Even a pain in the ass needs someone to take care of them.
Even a pain in the ass needs someone…
Fast and alive. Alive, all right? The alive part is incredibly important in this case.
Folks – the definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior, over and over, expecting different results.
Geerally people come to rehab not to get loaded.
Get an ambulance. He has meligloma astrocytroma.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change…the courage to change the things I can…and the wisdom to know the difference. It works if you work it. It’s worth it!
Great. Another thing I suck at.
Gwen C! Your bed wasn’t made, your clothes were all over the place- I’m giving you an F for daily inspection and fine you a dollar. So pay up.

Hey! Daniel! I am having a bad day! I am having the worst damn day of my whole damn life! So if it is not too much to ask of you people…will you just back the fuck off?!
Hi, my name is Cornell and I am a drug addict, alcholic, compulsive gambler slash compulsive liar
How you like them apples
I am a pain in the ass.
I am having a bad day! The worst damn day of my whole damn life! If its not too much to ask; will you all just back the fuck off!
I am so sorry. There was a water main break and the train got stuck in Rye. An electrical thingy. And just, explosion,-
I am so tired by the way you people talk, you know?
I bet you can’t sit still and be quiet for one minute.
I can control the little things. Then I just have to let go, and it’s up to someone else.
I did not kill this plant. It was sick or something.
I don’t need any more stories. I have enough stories. I would, I would like a life…
I don’t think you have niceness. You see, I don’t feel niceness coming from you.
I dunno. The mating habits of African ants. I dunno. The striped thing.
I feel sorry for all the plants in here.
I hafta pick just one?
I just need help! Right now!
I just need help, right now!
I like those spider plants, but you know, whatever turns you on…
I love afternoons like these. The only thing missing is a Martini with an olive at 3 in the afternoon. God I miss that.
I mean she shows up, drunk, stumbles through the entire ceremony and then in front of my new in-laws and my friends…she gives this speech…
I never asked for help, so…
I should have helped you with your homework.
I thought Gwen was a lesbian.
I understand. Marry a cute girl, more to the suburbs…spend your weekends mowing. You’ll never wanna do coke again!
I was looking for you. Successfully, as it turns out.
I would wish for my foreskin back. Nobody asked me before they took it.
i’d rather be dreaming than living
living’s just too hard to do
it’s chances, not choices
noises, not voices
the day’s just a thing to get through
living’s just too hard to do
dreams may be pretend
but at least dreams end
and i just can’t stop thinking, you see
thoughts are small comfort to me
I’d rather be dreaming than living. Living’s just too hard to do.
I’ll buy running shoes. We’ll take up yoga or jogging. You know, we’ll be organized. Pay our bills, floss our teeth. We won’t set fire to the apartment anymore. I’ll buy a goldfish, and we’ll be like normal people.
I’m Evelyn, don’t you recognize the hat?
I’m just trying to make my outsides match my insides, I guess.
I’m late cuz my tits caught on fire.
I’m never going to get laid.
If you’re not havin’ fun, what’s the freakin’ point?
Im having a bad day, so would you please back the f**k off!
Insanity is defined as doing the same behavior over and over again and expecting different result
It says in the script were supposed to kiss
It’s just a table stupid, leave it alone!
It’s the engine that kills ya, not the caboose.
Jeremiah was a bullfrog…he was a good friend of mine… I never understood a single word he said, but he helped he drink my wine, singing joy to the world, all the boys and girls, joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea, joy to you and me, if i were king of the mountain, i’s tell you what I’d som I’d throw away, all the cars and bars, and make sweet sweet love to you…
Just break open the bread
Just remember, God never dumps more on us then we can handle
Just so you know, I wasn’t trying to off myself or anything.
Lady if i knew the name of it then i wouldnt have called u, okay!
Lady, if I KNEW the name of the cake store, I wouldn’t have asked.
Lady, if I knew the name, I wouldn’t have called you, okay?
Lady, the people out there are addicts. They need cigarettes like the need air!
Lemme get this straight…you screw up, and then I’m suppose to drop everything in my life?
Like the stuff you were doing to get in here was real brain food.
Look Betty, You’ve got to get me a new room mate. I mean this guy stinks. I don’t know if his been eating beef and his secreating beef t-tones
Look I don’t know how much money I have in my bank account , but it’s all yours if I could just bum one of those cigarrettes off you .
Look, I know people’s perceptions of girls who screw other girls’ boyfriends. I know the world’s perceptions on somebody who goes into a bar and realizes 5 hours later that I’ve left my 3-year-old godson in the back of the car. I mean, people don’t like people like that. I don’t like people like that.
Make love, not war.
Man, this is not a way to live, this is a way to die…
My God, she’s alive. Gwennie’s back in action!
Ninety meetings in ninety days.
No human adult is happy. They know that they only have so long to believe that life is just dandy before something horrible happens… Life equals loss. The whole point of the game is to minimize the pain caused by that equation.
Nobody gets hurt collecting coins.
Oh and we chant here. Don’t be put off by it- is just that some people prefer it over the ‘serenity prayer’
Oh and you think that your memory of that day is somehow better than mine?
Oh Charm Blossom, you know this really isn’t necessary, lining up the mail like some sort of bar graph to show the relative fullness of everyones lives. I know my life is empty, okay?
Oh my God, look at my package!
Oh my God, what did we do last night?
Oh so our therapist today is a very large, smelly beast of burden.
Oh that’d be a great idea. You can spread your negativity further. You know, if you really try, you could ruin the experience for the entire patient population.
Oh that’s right you sang ‘Lean on Me’ about 20 times, it’s the cheesiest song ever, my bad, then you must know about leaving rehab better than anyone.
Oh the usual. Collected money for the poor little homeless children of the church bazaar. I think the vicar must of spiked the Kool-Aid.
Oh um, what’s your drug of choice? Alcohol, cocaine, Percodan, heroin, glue?
Oh! I got an eyelash. Make a wish!
Oh, an eyelash…/Make a wish./ Sobriety./Aw, c’mon, everyboy wants that./Okay then, my foreskin. Nobody asked me if I wanted that.
Oh, and we chant here
Oh, glass. In case I slit my wrists. I get it. An eyelash curler. What am I gonna do with that? Stab myself? Curl my tongue to death?
Oh, so our therapist today is a large, smelly beast of burden.
Once we all leave, we have needs that are going to need to be filled by people, physically, at time…how, and when, can we do that?–Not how, just when?
Oooh, is that available stitched on a pillow or something?
Right, ’cause instant gradification has worked so well for you in the past…
Saturday…Oh God. Oh God, it’s Saturday. Get up! Get up!
She has absolutely no sense of humour, but she’s really good at telling time.
Sir, I can’t replace the plant just because you’ve killed it.
So just um, just ah–think ah, think Meryl Streep. Think Cry In The Dark. Remember? ‘Dingo stole my baby. A dingo stole my baby!’
So what’s wrong with your balls? So to speak…
So… what’s wrong with your balls?
So… what’s wrong with your balls? So to speak ?
Sometimes I like to read. You know, literature. Stuff like that.
Sometimes you gotta kiss ass before ya kick it.
Sometimes you have to kiss ass before you can kick it.
Tell ya what. Here’s five dollars. I don’t plan on cleaning all week.
Thank God for bar cars!
That is a strike in any country.
That was a nice little moment there, where are you going?
That’s not what your neck sign says…
The only thing I ever told you was what a pain in the ass you were.
The strike zone, the call, the count, the batter, all that, forget all that…
There’s a time that you can share, that you can hold hands and be on the same path…but there’s always a fork in the road…at some point…and sometimes you have to go on one part of the fork and they got to go on the other part of the fork…or just down the back part of the fork while you go forward, and they’re like…or they got a salad fork and you have one of the big dinner forks and you have longer to go and they’re like done…because that’s it…they’re stuck on a piece of food…or a dessert forkâ€¦or like one of those, you know, small little shrimp forks and crab forks and you’re trying to get out a crab…they’re like that and your over here jumping to the huge serving fork or something like that…or a ladle, you know…
There’s a time when you can share and you hold hands and be on the same path. But there’s always a fork in the road… at some point. And sometimes you have to go on one part of the fork and they gotta go on the other part of the fork. Or just down the back part of the fork while you go forward. And they’re like *sigh* Or they got a salad fork and you have one of the big dinner forks and you have longer to go but they’re like done because that’s it, they’re stuck on a piece of food, that they *sigh*. A desert fork or like one of those, you know small little shrimp forks or crab forks and you’re trying to get out a crab. They’re like that and you’re over here jumping to the huge serving fork or something like that, or a ladle, you know.
They think I’m chanting, they have a whole ‘nother thing coming.
They’re from my agent. He’s trying to psych me out.
This is Eddie, he’s a patient here, he’s from Oklahoma
This is just, this is — I don’t need this, I have a life.
This isn’t a way to live. This is a way to die.
Those are just things you’ve done, not who you are. People make mistakes, you know? Who you are is just fine. More than fine.
To Lily…and her little sucker!
Together, we’re better! We’re better together! Nooooo Drugs!
Turkey. Meant to be symbolic of my behavious last time we saw each other. I tried to track down some roasted asshole, but…
Uh hey, listen, about the uh, about that uh jail thing…I, I, I can’t. I can’t uh go. Uh, uh, no-not because I don’t want to go, but…uh, it uh, oh God my hands, you know it’s like they just keep doing that. That’s not normal. I just, there’s something wrong with my hands, ih, well with me, because, uh, what kind of a person jsut jumps out of a, what kind of a person just jumps out of a window, you know? Because she can’t sit still, you know? And be alone, and, you know, in a room without…you know a person should be able to just be alone right? You know, human beings should be able to just breathe. I can’t breathe. And I feel that, I think, I know, that if , if I go to jail…like this, you know, I’ll die, and, and, I don’t wanna die.
Uh-huh, you know you’re screwed…
Was it sunset? Sunset by the lake is very romantic.
We carry our own bags here this isn’t the Sheraton.
We carry our own bags here, this isn’t the Sheraton
Well, forget that, Mr. Rogers, you 12-stepping geek. What do you know about me? Nothing, you don’t know a goddamn thing.
Well, not all of us can be perfect, but some of us can try. We all know that grown-ups have to make compromises, and Lily is very, very grown up. So that’s what she did. She said, is Andrew the very best man for me, on this earth? No! And I mean no! She says, hey I’m not getting any younger, and he makes a hell of a lot of money, so I’ll marry the little sucker! To Lily! And her little…sucker!
Well, that leaves me in favor of saying, pardon me sir, but I’d appreciate it if you wouldn’t sleep with my fiancee.
Well, you know, it might sound funny to you, but that’s all wrong.
What am I gonna do, curl my tongue to death?
What are you like 12, or something?
What do you go to first?
What’s the matter? Haven’t you ever seen a trach scar before? Hum? It’s a tracheostomy, okay. It’s not some growth. It’s not a deformity. It’s a scar. So you can stop staring at it.
What’s wrong with your ball?, so to speak.
When you get all locked in on the strike zone, next thing you know is it’s looking about the size of a peanut. And you’re thinking, you’re thinking ‘Damn I gota get that li’l ball in there.’ You’ve psyched yourself right out of the game.
Why? So I can recount the last 15 disgusting years of my life to humiliate myself? No thanks!
Ya know the definition of insanity is repeating the behavior over and over and expecting the same results
Yeah but…I dunno, I mean ‘Well how did he ask?’ ‘Well, he came down to visit me in rehab and…’
Yeah Lily, how does it make you feel?
You can keep your drugs and your whiskey sours. We got us a higher power! Yay, God!
You gotta think about the little thing, you know. The things you can control.
You hate normal people.
You know you’re screwed
You know, in the world of philosophy that’s called a tautology. Something is what is it because it is what it is. Why is the sky blue because it reflects the ocean. Why is the ocean blue because it reflects the sky. That kinda thing.
You know, you’re lucky you didn’t break anything. It’ll be swollen and tender for awhile. Unfortunately, you’re going to have to live with the pain because I can’t give you anything.
You know, your carpet is filthy. And uh, I only bring that up ’cause ah, carpet grit’s responsible for a lot of major health problems. And that’s the last thing you need around here.
You make it impossible to love you
You make it impossible to love you.
You ruined my wedding
you want to know how I feel, Gwen? How I always felt around you?….Small…I don’t know, maybe it was that ‘mom’ thing. Even when she was a mess, the whole world noticed her……you have that. And I guess, I thought you knew that. When I went back home, I started thinking….that maybe you don’t know that, about yourself. Who would’ve told you, not me….the only thing I ever told you was what a pain in the ass you were…
You watch Santa Cruz? You Santa Cruz-watcher!
You’re mine, I’m yours. I love you
Your gateway drug? Whatcha go for first?
Youre about as perceptive as hellen keller
