Celine (Cameron Diaz): “Kidnap For Beginners,” Chapter One. Have you even asked for a ransom yet?
Tod: Do you think that I would talk to a dog? Do you think that I would ask a dog whether or not you are good or evil? What do you think I am some kind of crazy backwoods lunatic with a barn full of human skulls and a scythe that I sharpen every day in readiness for Armageddon?
Robert (Ewan McGregor): Oh no. No I’m sure you’re just a regular kind of guy.
Tod: Right. I’m regular. I am regular man.
Celine: If word got out that I had been liberated for half a million dollars, I could never show my face in polite society again. Diamonds have no value except that which is placed upon them.
Jackson: Have you ever felt like you’re not in control of your events?
Jackson: No, I mean something is destined to happen, but it doesn’t. Like what happens when the forces of destiny are no longer in control?
Celine: Despite your crummy poem, I came to see you and all you could do was humiliate me and turn me away. And I thought you were decent, I thought you were different, but you’re not. You’re just a lying, cheating son-of-a-bitch just like all the rest.
