Quotes from the Movie The Big Chill

Wise up, folks. We're all alone out there and tomorrow we're going out there again.

Nick Carlton

They're either married or gay. And if they're not gay, they've just broken up with the most wonderful woman in the world, or they've just broken up with a bitch who looks exactly like me. They're in transition from a monogamous relationship and they need more space. Or they're tired of space, but they just can't commit. Or they want to commit, but they're afraid to get close. They want to get close, you don't want to get near them.

Sam

Wrong, a long time ago we knew each other for a short period of time; you don't know anything about me. It was easy back then. No one had a cushier berth than we did. It's not surprising our friendship could survive that. It's only out there in the real world that it gets tough.

Nick

I know this is hard but it's all beautiful.

Karen

Yeah we put on a great funeral here.

Yeah, maybe I'll have mine here.
