    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • (opening commentary)
        Tom: Just another working girl, a bit of light entertainment for a cold winter night, a little flash to brighten up a dingy street corner. It's odd how we all have our names for them, silly names, embarrassed Victorian euphemisms. We call them hookers, street walkers, ladies of the night. I guess that's why it's easy to forget that other people have names for them too, names like sister, or daughter.

      • Lt. Hogan: This place is starting to sound like the bleachers at Ebbets Field 30 years ago. Kevin, this is a fine kettle of fish you brought in here. Why didn't you just stay home (on his night off) and watch a hockey game or something?
        Kevin: Next time.

      • Ellen Kozak: What's going to happen to Cletis (her pimp)?
        Christine: I don't know. And what about your father? I mean, aren't you worried about him?
        Ellen: He won't get in any trouble.
        Christine: Assault is a pretty serious charge Ellen.
        Ellen: They'll let him go ... Won't they? ... Well, nobody asked him to come here you know.
        Christine: So you ran away?
        Ellen: I'm old enough to do what I want.
        Christine: Yes, but that doesn't stop him from worrying about you.
        Ellen: I am doing fine.
        Christine: I can see that. Look, maybe you could just go home for a visit.
        Ellen: He send you here to say that?
        Christine: No. But he obviously wants to try and take some sense into you.
        Ellen: He wants to push me around. He wants to tell me what to do and how to do it. That's all he wants.
        Christine: No father wants to see his daughter out on her own. It's simple.
        Ellen: Yeah, was yours like that?
        Christine: Yeah, more or less.
        Ellen: Yeah, well maybe that's OK for you. I can't go back there. I want my own life.
        Christine: Hooking? It's a great life.
        Ellen: It's not so bad. How much do you make a night?
        Christine: Listen honey ... Forget it, just forget it.

      • (closing commentary)
        Tom: We spend our lives wrestling with love. A father's love becomes an anchor dragging at his child. A woman's love becomes a cheap commodity sold to the highest bidder. A man's love twists into bizarre shapes of rage and dominance until it kills everything in its path. These are only some of the forms love takes. It's where our comedies end and our tragedies start. It tears us apart and sometimes, maybe sometimes, it pulls us together.
