  • Quotes

    • Heather: Wait. If you see my Daddy, will you tell him that I love him?
      Michael: Oh, he knows, honey. He knows.

    • Dr. Theo: We have a problem.
      Michael: If it's about that extra brussels sprout I ate at dinner, I'll make it up to you. I'll go easy on the garbanzos at lunch.

    • Neighbor: I'm sorry to bother you, but I just noticed the right-most upstairs window. I'm quite sure I saw the image of the face of a man in the glass.
      Lisa: Yes, well, I've been meaning to wash those windows for months now. Thank you.

    • Gretchen: Heather got hit by lightning.
      English Teacher: Wow. And what was that like?
      Heather: Well, I wouldn't recommend it.

    • Michael: You have any kids?
      Dr. Theo: The question of whether or not I have children is irrelevant to the conversation that we are having.
      Michael: I bet you do. I bet you have some. What I can't figure out is whether you made them the old-fashioned way or put them together from some kind of kit.

    • Dr. Theo: Mr. Wiseman, you're only eight miles from the target. Any questions?
      Michael: Yeah, I got a question. Where the hell's my parachute?

    • Michael: 30,000 feet? What am I going to be doing at 30,000 feet?
      Dr. Theo: Jumping out of an airplane.
      Michael: I don't think so.
      Dr. Theo: Think again.

    • Dr. Theo: Mr. Wiseman, you're about to make a historic contribution to science and technology. And if all goes as planned you will have been instrumental in helping to protect your country from attacks by outside forces that seek to do it harm.
      Michael: If I had known that, I would have worn clean underwear.

    • Michael: Want to tell me what the point is? You're not thinking about lighting me up at night and running advertising all over me, are you? I'm an artist. I won't allow myself to be used that way.

    • Michael: Then why'd you tell me?
      Dr. Theo: I told you because, if something awful were to happen, I wouldn't want you to spend the rest of your...existence, resenting the fact that you didn't get one last look.
      Michael But you just said...
      Dr. Theo: I said you can't just go walking in there. That hospital has guards and nurses and policies. And nobody but you and I know that she's your daughter. Not to mention the fact that your wife is in there.
      Michael: So what's the point.
      Dr. Theo: The point is to be there. Even if it's just sitting in the car outside.

    • Michael: (wearing the light suit) The last time I saw you, you were in a hospital bed. you look better.
      Heather: What are you...
      Michael: Don't speak. Just listen. I know what you've been going through, so I want you to tell everyone that if they want to they can see me tonight. Just like you did. Only I'll be in the southern sky. Do you understand what I mean when I say in the southern sky?
      (she nods)
      Michael: I never meant for any of this to hurt you Heather. And I'm going to do everything I can to put everything back the way it was.
      Heather: Can I wake my mom? Can I bring her in here to see you?
      Michael: No. I'm sorry you mustn't do that. Bring her tonight with the others. The southern sky, 8 o'clock.

    • Lisa: Faith is believing in someone, something. When absolutely all the evidence tells you, shouts at you, that it just ain't so.
      Heather: Like?
      Lisa: Like God. Like goodness. Like there was an angel in the hospital room.
      Heather: So you believe me?
      Lisa: Yeah.

    • Dr. Theo: Mr. Wiseman, how are we doing?
      Michael: We're not doing well. Nobody told me I wouldn't have a chute. I can't do this. I won't do this. I'm not...Uhmm, did you know there's people up here with guns?

    • Dr. Theo: Terrific synthesis of form and function if I do say so myself.
      Michael: And you do...all the time.
