  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Ed: I'm a fraud. Orson Welles made a movie called F for Fake and that's me. I say I'm a filmmaker, but I don't do it. I say I'm a shaman, but I don't do it.

    • Leonard: Maybe this is white magic, movies. They do say they're magic. It seems to have healed you.
      Ed: Yeah, my stomach feels better. But soon, the movie will be over.

    • Leonard: (after Chris "explains" urban legends) How does the rise of capitalism explain the one about the woman in the VW?

    • Leonard: I have clients in the white community. People are starting to assimilate.

    • Leonard: Are you aware of (Paul Bunyan)'s influence on your daily life?
      Holling: I have gone for years without thinking about him.

    • Ruth-Anne: Tell him to stay clear of the truck and we'll get there when we can.

    • Joel: I watched my truck go up in a mushroom cloud because the fire department was rescuing some goat!
      Ruth-Anne: Charlemagne is the Monetts' last milk goat!

    • Joel: Are you saying you wouldn't go in a burning building with me? What's that supposed to mean?

    • Joel: This is Dr. Fleischman on Main Street. My truck is on fire. (pause) Yes, it is definitely an emergency!

    • Joel: My scholarship said nothing about putting out fires. It was the one thing not in the fine print.

    • Joel: You know what I'm saying?
      Ruth-Anne: You're saying no.

    • Maurice: You run a couple of rolls of film, and bingo you've got a trinket business.

    • Maurice: What do you think of that?
      Ed: It's the alphabet.
      Maurice: No, it's typefaces!

    • Maurice: What do you know about stress? You're not doing anything!

    • Maurice: I want to hear you starting to use words like advertising, distributor, indie!

    • Maurice: Ed, do you have any idea what time it is?
      Ed: Late?

    • Maurice: (about film festivals) Telluride, Colorado has one. Sarasota, Florida has one-two places I wouldn't stop to take a leak in.

    • Peter Bogdanovich: Are you sure the B&B is on this road?
      Ed: Yeah, it's not much farther.
      Peter Bogdanovich: Do you get a lot of wolves around here?
      Ed: Wolves don't really attack people.

    • Maggie: You're not a team player.
      Joel: I am a private person. New Yorkers are like that. It comes from living in an overpopulated, crime-infested island. We like our space.

    • Leonard: The path to our destination is not always a straight one, Ed. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn't matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark.
