A Room With a View (1986, UK)

"He's the sort who can't know anyone intimately, least of all a woman. He doesn't know what a woman is. He wants you as a possession, something to look at, like a painting or an ivory box. Something to own and to display. He doesn't want you to be real, and to think and to live. He doesn't love you. But I love you. I want you to have your own thoughts and ideas and feelings, even when I hold you in my arms. It's our last chance..."

Not, not like they told you love is and I didn't know this either. But love don't make things nice, it ruins everything! It breaks your heart, it makes things a mess. We, we aren't here to make things perfect. Snowflakes are perfect, stars are perfect. Not us! Not US!

Roxanne dreamed of a handsome, intelligent, romantic man. C.D. Bales is two out of three... but looks aren't everything!

"...He made me feel romantic, intelligent, feminine. But it wasn't him doing that to me. It was you. All these other men, Charlie, they've got flat, featureless faces. No character! No fire! No nose!

Beaches (1988)


Some Friendships Last Forever

"Oh, Hillary, I'll never forget this as long as I live...You doing the laundry for me. I mean, I hate to do laundry more than anything in the whole world. I think this is probably the nicest thing anybody ever did for me. A man would never do this for you no matter how much he loved you."

"So what do you do with yourself all day, now that you're a housewife? I mean, don't you get bored sitting around the house all day?"
"No, because I don't sit around the house all day. I'm extremely busy."
"Doing what?...How do you keep busy? Doing what?"
"...I spend my time working on various charities. I'm on the board of the Junior League, the State and Homes Preservation Society, I'm a docent at the art museum..."

"...at least I belong to myself, which is more than I can say for you. I'm doing what I set out to do, remember? I'm living a life you didn't have the courage for. So don't give me 'You're not jealous'. You're so jealous you can hardly breathe." and later: Hillary: "I was jealous. I was so jealous of you I couldn't see straight! You did everything you said you were going to do, everything! And your talent, this incredible talent! I can't even yodel!"



Working Girl (1988)


For anyone who's ever won. For anyone who's ever lost. And for everyone who's still in there trying.

"You're the first woman I've seen in one of these things that dresses like a woman, not like a woman thinks a man would dress if he was a woman."

"I have a head for business and a bod for sin. Is there anything wrong with that?"
