Quotes from the Movie Dan in Real Life

Now, your mom...I miss your mom. All the time.

Dan

Oh, honey. I see her every day. I see in your goodness, Jane. And Cara, your passion. And Lily, you have her eyes. And her smile. So here is what I'm going to do. I am grounding myself for life. And so I will be with you--

Dan

I'm not going anywhere. See, I got a little confused with Marie. That is over, okay? I kind of lost my head. I got a little stupid, because I love her. No, that's not...I don't love her. and that's not what I meant. I mean, how could I love her? I've only known her..

Dan

Yeah. And how can you know in three days? Well, no. Yes I do. I love her. I love her, I love her, I love her. I love her.

Dan

Dear Readers, for most of you, this is my first column in your paper. In the future, I will be answering your questions, but today I want to break from my usual format and talk to you about the subject of plans. Not so much my plan for this column, but life plans, and how we all make them. And how we hope that our kids make good, smart, safe plans of their own. But if we're really honest with ourselves, our plans usually don't work out as we had hoped. So instead of asking our young people "What are you plans? What do you plan to do with your life?" maybe we should tell them this: Plan to be surprised.

Dan

Well, wasn't like, the whole point to go to school? And now you're forcing us to miss school when we should like, be in school. Right, I mean what about my studies? Why are you smiling?

Cara

Well we can't all be monks like you.

Cara

A month?! But that's worse than forever! Okay, dad, why?

Cara

Dad, dad, dad! Stop, listen! I didn't know right away! It took me a while!

Cara

Well, I, I, I've known him for three weeks but I knew in three days.

Cara

I miss your skin. I miss your smell. I miss...I miss your eyes. [she spots Dan crawling across the room] DAD! YOU ARE SUCH A FREAK!

Cara

You don't have to worry. When it comes to sex, Marty's the one who wants to wait.

Cara

What we have is true love. Just because you don't have it doesn't mean you have to punish us for it!

Cara

You don't even understand that you don't understand!

Cara

Very good column, sir. The last bit about curfew is very apt. May I also say that yesterday's column on boundary setting was excellent.

Marty
