    • QUOTES (6)

      • Jake: Therapy did us good.
        Paul: Would you agree with that, Amy?
        Amy: Sure, if by 'good,' he means it was a disaster.

      • Amy: Oh sure! My week was light and breezy.
        Paul: Would you mind talking about it?
        Amy: Yes, I do mind talking about it because every time I come here and tell you about my week, you find a way to make me feel miserable. To make my childhood seem like a nightmare. To make my marriage look like a sham. So sorry, forgive me, but I'm actually through talking about my week.

      • Paul: You know, I think that what we've tried to do here in these sessions is to illuminate the patterns of behavior that have kept the two of you kind of... coiled around each other... The cycles that you've embraced. The way you've hidden behind them. So you can't really act out these patterns anymore because everything is now out in the open. Now they're in the conscious mind. The two of you are, in a way, emotionally naked before each other.

      • Paul: This is what I see in front of me -- two people who have really loved each other deeply. And even though you're not bringing each other happiness right now, the truth is you've gotten to this place together. And though you're looking at it from different perspectives, it is the same place. And I guess what I'm asking you to do is to think about not turning away. Even at this difficult time when you're... contemplating the notion of separation, you can still draw strength from... from each other.

      • Paul: All I can say is that you are a unique couple. I know couples who use less energy to make love than you two use in casual conversation. And passion like that is a rare commodity. But passion itself isn't enough to sustain a relationship for a lifetime.
        Amy: What is? What is enough to keep two people together for a lifetime?
        Paul: I wish I knew the answer to that.

      • Amy: If worse comes to worse, you could always get your parents to help out with Lenny.
        Jake: I'd live on the streets before I ever ask my parents for help.
