Lloyd Dobler (John Cusak): I’m looking for a dare to be great situation.
Lloyd: I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don’t want to do that.
Diane Court (Ione Skye): Are you shaking?
Diane: You’re shaking.
Lloyd: I don’t think so.
Diane: You’re cold.
Lloyd: I don’t think I am.
Diane: Then why are you shaking?
Lloyd: I don’t know. I think I’m happy.
Lloyd: She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen.
Lloyd: The rain on my car is a baptism. I’m the new me. The Iceman. Power Lloyd. My assault on the world begins now.
D.C.: Lloyd, why do you have to be like this?
Lloyd: ‘Cause I’m a guy! I have pride!
Corey (Lili Taylor): You’re not a guy.
Lloyd: I am.
Corey: No. The world is full of guys. Be a man. Don’t be a guy.
Lloyd: One question, are you here because you need someone or cause you need me?
Lloyd: What I really want to do with my life–what I want to do for a living–is I want to be with your daughter. I’m good at it.
Lloyd: Joe, she’s written 65 songs about you, and they’re all about pain.
