Quotes From High Fidelity:
Rob: Sometimes I got so bored of trying to touch her breast
that I would try to touch her between her legs. It was like
trying to borrow a dollar, getting turned down, and asking
for 50 grand instead.
Laura: Listen, Rob, would you have sex with me? Because
I want to feel something else than this. It either
that, or I go home and put my hand in the fire. Unless
you want to stub cigarettes out on my arm.
Rob: No. I only have a few left, I've been saving
them for later.
Laura: Right. It'll have to be sex, then.
Rob: Right. Right.
Rob: Alison married Kevin! I am fine now! Married her junior
high school sweetheart: kissed me on the bench, kissed Kevin
on the bench - MARRIED Kevin. This is great! This has got
nothing to do with me! This is fate, this is destiny; it
is beyond my control, beyond my fault. I love this!
Laura: I'm too tired not to be with you.
Rob: What, so if you had a bit more energy we'd stay split
up, but things being as they are, with you being wiped out
and all, you want to get back together? Is that it?
Rob: My desert island, all-time, top-five most memorable
breakups, in chronological order, are as follows: Alison
Ashmore; Penny Hardwick; Jackie Alden; Charlie Nicholson;
and Sarah Kendrew. Those were the ones that really hurt.
Can you see your name on that list, Laura? Maybe you'd sneak
into the top ten. But there's just no room for you in the
top five, sorry. Those places are reserved for the kind
of humiliation and heartbreak you're just not capable of
Rob: It would be nice to think that since I was 14, times
have changed. Relationships have become more sophisticated.
Females less cruel. Skins thicker. Instincts more developed.
But there seems to be an element of that afternoon in everything
that's happened to me since. All my romantic stories are
a scrambled version of that first one.
