Closer Movie Quotes
Larry: I know who you are. I love you. I love everything about you that hurts.
Anna: Why is the s*x so important?
Larry: Because I'm a f***ing caveman!
Dan: It's not safe out there.
Alice: Oh, and it's safe in here?
Dan: You love her like a dog loves its owner.
Larry: And the owner loves the dog for so doing.
Dan: You'll hurt her. You'll never forgive her.
Larry: Of course I'll forgive her. I *have* forgiven her. Without forgiveness we're savages. You're drowning.
Larry: I used to come here when it was a punk club. The stage was... Everything is a version of something else. Twenty years ago. How old were you?
Larry: Christ. When I was in flares, you were in nappies.
Alice: My nappies were flared.
Alice: No one will ever love you as much as I do. Why isn't love enough?
Larry: I think you owe me for deceiving me so exquisitely.
Larry: But we're happy... Aren't we?
Alice: How can one man be so endlessly disappointing?
Dan: That's my charm.
Larry: A good fight is never clean.
Dan: I fell in love.
Alice: Oh, as if you had no choice? There's a moment, there's always a moment, "I can do this, I can give into this, or I can resist it", and I don't know when your moment was, but I bet you there was one.
Anna: I don't kiss strange men.
Dan: Neither do I.
Anna: I'm sorry you're...
Larry: Don't say it! Don't you fu***n* say you're too good for me. I am, but don't say it.
Dan: Everybody wants to be happy.
Larry: Depressives don't. They want to be unhappy to confirm they're depressed. If they were happy they couldn't be depressed anymore. They'd have to go out into the world and live. Which can be depressing.
Alice: It's the only way to leave. "I don't love you anymore. Goodbye."
Dan: Supposing you do still love them?
Alice: You don't leave.
Dan: You've never left someone you still love?
Dan: This will hurt.
Larry: Alice, tell me something that's true.
Alice: Lying's the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off - but it's better if you do.
Dan: When I get back, please tell me the truth.
Dan: Because I'm addicted to it. Because without it, we're animals. Trust me.
Alice: I don't want to lie. I can't tell the truth. So it's over.
Larry: [on a photography exhibit] What do you think?
Alice: It's a lie. It's a bunch of sad strangers photographed beautifully, and... all the glittering as*h***s who appreciate art say it's beautiful 'cause that's what they wanna see. But the people in the photos are sad, and alone... But the pictures make the world seem beautiful, so... the exhibition is reassuring which makes it a lie, and everyone loves a big fat lie.
Larry: So Anna tell me your bloke wrote a book. Any good?
Alice: Of course.
Larry: It's about you isn't it?
Alice: Some of me.
Larry: Oh? What did he leave out?
Alice: The truth.
Alice: I'm not a w*o*e.
Larry: I wouldn't pay.
Dan: You think love is simple. You think the heart is like a diagram.
Larry: Have you ever seen a human heart? It looks like a fist, wrapped in blood! Go f**k yourself! You writer! You liar!
Larry: A heart is a fist covered in blood!
Anna: Don't stop loving me. I can see it draining out of you. It's me, remember? It was a stupid thing to do and it meant nothing. If you love me enough, you'll forgive me.
Alice: Where is this love? I can't see it, I can't touch it. I can't feel it. I can hear it. I can hear some words, but I can't do anything with your easy words.
Larry: You don't know the first thing about love, because you don't understand compromise.
Dan: Deception is brutal.
Dan: You've ruined my life.
Anna: You'll get over it.
Alice: Why isn't love enough?
Larry: You think because you don't love us, or desire us, or even like us, you think you've won.
Alice: It's not a war.
Dan: What's so great about the truth? Try lying for a change, it's the currency of the world.
Larry: Everyone needs looking after.
Dan: I hate that I'm hurting you.
Alice: Then why are you?
Anna: Love bores you.
Dan: No, it disappoints me.
