Quotes from the Movie At First Sight

Hope is like fire, it can keep you warm - or it can burn you.

Jennie Adamson

Amy - when Virgil was very young, he couldn't see those close to him - so he never learned to reach out. Don't expect him to reach out when he's in pain, or confused, or unhappy. If you really care about him you have to just be there for him.

Jennie Adamson

Virgil - look - you have to learn to see - just like you learned to speak. Only this is not like learning a new language - it's like learning language for the first time. Perception - sight - life, is about experience - about reaching out and exploring the world for yourself. It's not enough to just see Virgil-- we've got to look as well.

Phil Webster

Limbo is like New Jersey. You can see all the good stuff, you just have to get there.

Phil Webster

You always make the girls cry.

Amy

Not since grade school.

Virgil

Eyes, mouth, chin, cheek...you are very beautiful.

Virgil

Thank-you. So are you - more than I could describe.

Amy

Are you blind?

Ethan

Cool, see ya.

Ethan

I can't sleep - I'm afraid if I close my eyes...

Virgil

It'll be black when you open them again.

Amy

Right - OK, Virgil - says here you went blind at one - before you developed a visual vocabulary. You have no sense of depth of field, no knowledge of space, shape, size or distance. Basically your eyes work but your brain hasn't learned to process the information. You are mentally blind. Neurologists call this "visual agnosia".

Webster

I call it pretty screwed up.

Virgil

Better term. I'll make a note of that.

Webster
