Quotes from the Movie Before Sunset

I'm serious. I think I wrote it, in a way, to try to find you.

Jesse

Okay, that's - I know that's not true, but that's sweet of you to say.

Celine

I think it is true. What do you think were the chances of us ever meeting again?

Jesse

After that December, I'd say almost zero. But we're not real anyway, right? We're just, uh, characters in that old lady's dream. She's on her deathbed, fantasizing about her youth. So of course we had to meet again.

Celine

Oh, God, why weren't you there, in Vienna?

Jesse

I told you why.

Celine

Well, I know why, I just - I wish you would have been. Our lives might have been so much different.

Jesse

You think so?

Celine

I actually do.

Jesse

Maybe not. Maybe, we would have hated each other eventually.

Celine

Oh what, like we hate each other now?

Jesse

You know, maybe we're - we're only good at brief encounters, walking around in European cities in warm climate.

Celine

Oh, God, why didn't we exchange phone numbers and stuff? Why didn't we do that?

Jesse

Because we were young and stupid.

Celine

Do you think we still are?

Jesse

I guess when you're young, you just believe there'll be many people with whom you'll connect with. Later in life, you realize it only happens a few times.

Celine

And you can screw it up, you know, misconnect.

Jesse

The past is the past. It was meant to be that way.

Celine

What, you really believe that? That everything's fated?

Jesse

Well, you know, the world might be less free than we think.

Celine

Yeah, when given these exact circumstances, that's what will happen every time: two part hydrogen, one part oxygen, you get water every time.

Celine

No, no, I - I - I mean what if your grandmother had lived a week longer, or, you know, or passed away a week earlier, days even. You know things might have been different. I believe that.

Jesse

You can't think like that, it's...

Celine

No, I mean, I know you shouldn't on most things, but - It's just, on this one it seemed like something was off, you know?

Jesse
