Favorite Quotations From the Movie "Closer"

Dan: And you left him, just like that?
Alice: It's the only way to leave. "I don't love you anymore. Goodbye."
Dan: Supposing you do still love them?
Alice: You don't leave.
Dan: You've never left someone you still love?
Alice: Nope.

Dan: I fell in love with her, Alice.
Alice: Oh, as if you had no choice? There's a moment, there's always a moment, "I can do this, I can give into this, or I can resist it", and I don't know when your moment was, but I bet you there was one.

Dan: Deception is brutal, I'm not pretending otherwise.
Alice: How? How does it work? How do you do this to someone?
 [Dan is silent]
Alice: Not good enough!

Dan: It's not safe out there.
Alice: Oh, and it's safe in here?

Alice: I don't want to lie. I can't tell the truth. So it's over.

Alice: How can one man be so endlessly disappointing?
Dan: That's my charm.

Larry: She doesn't want to be happy.
Dan: Everybody wants to be happy.
Larry: Depressives don't. They want to be unhappy to confirm they're depressed. If they were happy they couldn't be depressed anymore. They'd have to go out into the world and live. Which can be depressing.

Alice: Where is this love? I can't see it, I can't touch it. I can't feel it. I can hear it. I can hear some words, but I can't do anything with your easy words.



  1. I love the last quote the most.

    1. I love that quote too! Have you seen the movie? I think Natalie Portman is brilliant in that scene...
