Quotes from the Movie Defending Your Life

I was driving to work this morning thinking I will be here, in two months, it'll be ten years. And, you're like my real family. Isn't that tragic? [laughter] I got a call from my mother this morning to wish me a Happy Birthday, and hinted around the fact that I wasn't making enough money, if you can call, 'Are you still making that same salary, honey?' a hint. [laughter] And my ex-wife used to say the same thing, although she never used the word 'honey'. [laughter] So, maybe in three years I can double my income?... Four years? Okay. So, you're great people to work with, and this is a great present, and I wish I could squeeze all of you into one pretty woman. [laughter] And if you'd like to go to my office, I'll try. [laughter] Thanks a lot.

Daniel Miller

I'm curious. I see people driving these things. What do you know that I don't? Are floods coming in? Hoover Dam broke? What's going on?

Daniel Miller

It's not a car, it's a battering ram. This is what Patton drove: "Hey you, soldier! Follow us!"

Daniel Miller

In an 8.5 earthquake, I'll beg for a coffin.

Daniel Miller

Oh, yes. I had a bond with my father. I pretty much never lied to him.

Daniel Miller

I said "pretty much" never lied. I didn't say I never, ever lied. You have to lie sometimes... in an emergency. But, ah, it doesn't mean the bond is affected. If you've got the bond, the bond is always there, and if you have to lie occasionally you're not going to interfere with the bond. You know, the bond can wait for a little lie and... in the end it's there for you. You know, sometimes in the middle of a lie I found that the bond would kick in... maybe squeeze a little truth out.

Daniel Miller

I don't know; I never got a straight answer. All I know is that their teeth fell out.

Daniel Miller

You have to be okay with yourself before you can ever be okay with anyone else

Daniel Miller

Make fun, but in an 8.5 earthquake, you'll beg for a Jeep.

Jeep Owner

Nope, it isn't Hell either. Actually, there is no Hell. Although I hear Los Angeles is getting pretty close.

Bob Diamond

For example, I use forty-eight percent of my brain. Do you know how much you use?

Bob Diamond

Your honors, Miss Foster and I have had this argument for a long time. I think the act itself is what's important, but she wants to keep enlarging it until everything loses its meaning. If I fix the flat tire on your car, and two years later I lose your garden hose, according to you I'm not going to get any credit for the flat, I'm just a dumb guy who lost the hose!

Bob Diamond

Did we ever stop to think that this young boy had a bond with his father? I don't think it had anything to do with the friend. I just think Daniel couldn't lie to his dad. That's all.

Bob Diamond

You're nodding, Mr. Miller. Does that mean you agree with Mr. Diamond?

Lena Foster

You never lied to your father? Would you like me to show you at least 500 examples?

Lena Foster

What did you finally invest in, Mr. Miller, do you remember?

Lena Foster

And what happened to the cattle?
