  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Gina: I'm so sorry.
      Paul: That's so easy to say, isn't it?
      Gina: It may be easy to say, but it's very hard to hear.

    • Gina: (asking about Paul's father) Is he in pain?
      Paul: He's in pain. I'm in pain. The whole fucking world's in pain.

    • Gina: It's very hard to have someone sick and dependent on you. It drains all your reservoirs. It makes you very very tired.

    • Gina: Our memories can be very unreliable. We like to think of them as indelible records of our past. But every time we pull out a scene, we fiddle with it a little bit before we put it back in.

    • Gina: You know, Paul, one of the... confusing things about emotional injury in families is that it can feel so unfair, it can feel so random. It's like an automobile accident -- everybody's in the car, but you're the only one who went through the windshield.

    • Gina: I thought that the fights began after your father left her. It seems that they were having trouble before he left her. Before she got sick.
      Paul: Maybe his fucking around made her sick.

    • Paul: Bipolar disorder is not caused by events in a patient's life. Events can make you feel bipolar.

    • Gina: I think you felt your mother's illness deeply. And I think even as a child, you had an empathic response to suffering. But you were too young and so you went to school. You worked, you studied, you thought. And now when people come to you, you can help them. But you're not a therapist because you think you failed your mother. You were a boy, Paul.
