    • QUOTES (8)

      • Paul: You know that anxiety can manifest itself in all kinds of physical ways. Some people can get cramps. Migraines. A rash.
        Sophie: So I'm just a little worried? Okay, all better.

      • (after pulling up her shirt in front of Paul)
        Sophie: I shocked you. You're shocked. My titties scared you. How can they? They're just these tiny little things.

      • Sophie: I have the body of a child. But I'm not a child. Children don't want to kill themselves.
        Paul: That's true.

      • Sophie: You want me to have some big breakthrough today, I can see that. Why don't you just tell me what the answer is and I'll repeat it back to you and you can put a Gold Star on my forehead?
        Paul: What I'm trying to do is help you find your own answers. And I think that you are really close to that. And I understand how scary that must be.

      • Sophie: Isn't there a law somewhere that says parents have to love their kids forever?

      • Paul: The only actions that we can control are our own. And the only power we have is how we treat other people and how we treat ourselves.

      • Paul: (to Sophie) Listen, if you're up on the beam and your legs start to shake, try saying this to yourself: 'I'm making this happen. It is coming from inside me and because I am making it happen, I can make it stop.'

      • Sophie: I found my diary from fourth grade. I used to write in this thing constantly. Did you ever keep a diary?
        Paul: No.
        Sophie: I took it out because I wanted to see if you were right about how hard it was for me to lie to my mother. Do you want me to read to you what I found?
        Paul: I'd be honored.
        Sophie: "Dear Hermione"... I pretended that I was writing to Hermione Granger.
        Paul: Who's that?
        Sophie: You know, from Harry Potter. Tell me you've read those. Are you insane?
        Paul: Just haven't gotten around to it yet.
        Sophie: They've been out for ten years.
        Paul: I know, I know, I know.
        Sophie: I'll bring you my set next week.
        Paul: That's not necessary, honestly. My kids have them.
        Sophie: They've read them?
        Paul: Uh-huh. And they really love them.
        Sophie: OK. Maybe you're not such a fucked-up parent.
        Paul: Thank you.
