  • Quotes (4)

    • Judge Othniel: Sometimes keeping your heart closed can be more painful than taking the risk to open it.

    • (before he realizes that he is dead) Steven: Did you see that fall? Mr. Smith: It certainly gives new meaning to the term Freudian slip.

    • (regarding a traumatic event in Steven's life) Judge Othniel: You were humiliated. That event turned you into ah, an obsessively fastidious, power hungry... Mr. Smith: control freak. (Judge Othniel nods) Steven: So what? I like my environment neat and tidy. There's nothing pathological about that. Mr. Smith: I think you're terrified to lose control again. That way, no one can humiliate you or abandon you again. Ever.

    • Mr. Smith: Steven, being sent back is supposed to be about forgiving Buzzy Walsh. Steven: Oh, I'll forgive Buzzy - after I get even.
