Quotes from the Movie 28 Days

Well, I'm not a fan of all soap operas. Just Santa Cruz. I mean, it's just an incredible show. I saw it the first time, um, when I was in the hospital a while ago after I got out of my first rehab center. There was this girl on the show, who's Darien. She was also hospitalized, and it was like I was staring at myself. I mean, not physically, cause I don't have the curly hair and stuff. I mean, this whole thing had happened with her. She'd actually been impregnated by her brother, but, she obviously didn't know it was her brother at the time, and... And I don't have a brother, but I have sisters... So it's really sort of, um, been an inspiration... for me. And, it's really, sort of, helped me stay sober... off and on...

Andrea

She didn't come. I waited all day for her. I did my hair.

Andrea

Yeah, you're an individual. The only person in the world who uses drugs and alcohol.

Cornell Shaw

Hey, listen. This isn't the last lousy day you're going to have here.

Cornell Shaw

Hi, my name is Cornell. I'm a drug addict, alcoholic, compulsive gambler-slash-liar.

Cornell Shaw

If that will make you happy, I will stop drinking. And then I would tell myself, "Tonight, I will not get wasted." And then something would happen. Or nothing would happen. And, uh, I'd get that feeling. I think you all know what that feeling is. When your skin is screaming and your hands are shaking. Uh, and your stomach feels like it wants to jump through your throat. And you know, that if anyone had a clue how wrong it felt to be sober, they wouldn't dream of asking you to stay that way. They would say, "Oh, geeze, I didn't know. Here. It's okay for you. Do that mound of cocaine. Have a drink. Have 20 drinks. Whatever you need to do to feel like a normal human being, you do it. And boy, I did it. I drank and I snorted, and I drank and I snorted, and drank and I snorted, and I did this day after day after day after night after night. And I didn't care about the consequences, because I knew they couldn't be half as bad as not using. And then one night, something happened. I woke up. I woke up on a sidewalk. And I had no idea where I was. I couldn't have told you the city I was in. And my head was pounding, and I looked down and my shirt is covered in blood. And as I'm lying there, wondering what happens next, I head a voice, and it said, "Man, this is not a way to live. This is a way to die."

Cornell Shaw

I like those spider plants, but whatever turns you on.

Cornell Shaw

Oh my God! Look at my package!

Gerhardt

There's a time when you can share and you hold hands and be on the same path. But there's always a fork in the road... at some point. And sometimes you have to go on one part of the fork and they gotta go on the other part of the fork. [Sigh] Or just down the back part of the fork while you go forward. And they're like [Sigh] Or they got a salad fork and you have one of the big dinner forks and you have longer to go but they're like done because that's it, they're stuck on a piece of food, that they [Sigh]. Their desert fork or like one of those, you know small little shrimp forks or crab forks and you're trying to get out a crab. They're like that and you're over here jumping to the huge serving fork or something like that, or a ladle, you know.

Gerhardt

Eddie, you surprise me.

Gerhardt

I have a question. Once we all leave, we have needs that are going to need to be filled... by people... physically... at times. How and when can we do that? Not how, just when?

Gerhardt

Oh. I killed the plant.

Gerhardt

What are you doing here? It's so good to see you!

Gerhardt

We carry our own bags here, this isn't the Sheraton.

Betty

No fraternization- that's romance and/or sex- between patients. Oh, and we chant here. Don't be put off by it. It's just some people prefer it to the serenity prayer.

Betty
