    • Will McAvoy: Adults should hold themselves accountable for failure.

    • MacKenzie MacHale: Can I warn you about something? You're a rich and famous person and for that reason only, she may want to sleep with you.
      Will McAvoy: That didn't sound like something that should come with a warning, that sounded like something that should come with balloons.

    • Charlie Skinner: I've been sitting here for two and a half hours and I still don't know why. It's like being in the cast of a Fellini film.
