Quotes from the Movie Before Sunset

At least now we don't have to pretend that each new sexual experience is a life-altering event.

Jesse

I know. By now, you know, you've stuck it in so many places, it's like about to fall off.

Yeah, you know, and I can't realistically expect that you've become anything but a total ho, at this point.

So what kind of songs do you write? I didn't know you did that.

I don't know, just songs.

Like, some are about, you know, people, uh, relationships. One's about my cat.

Celine

No, I can't, I don't have a guitar.

Celine

Oh, co- come on. A cappella.

Jesse

No, no, no. I'm not singing a song without a guitar. You're nuts!

Celine

Why not? It's...

Jesse

No, okay. Not now. No.

Celine

If not now, when? Wanna meet here in six months with a guitar? You know, I'll fly all the way over here, you may or may not make the metro...

I heard this story once about when the Germans were occupying Paris and they had to retreat back. They wired Notre Dame to blow, but they had to leave one guy in charge of hitting the switch. And the guy, the soldier, he couldn't do it. You know, he just sat there, knocked out by how beautiful the place was. And then when the allied troops came in, they found all the explosives just lying there and the switch unturned, and they found the same thing at Sacre Couer, Eiffel Tower. Couple other places I think...

Jesse

Is that true?

Celine

I don't know. I always liked the story, though.

Jesse

You want to know why I wrote that stupid book?

Jesse

[laughing] No - you thought I'd be here today?

Celine
