Ocean's 11, or "Ugh, Why Can't All Movies Be This Well Written?"
- [An expensive restaurant. Tess sits, waiting. Danny approaches from behind her and places his hand on her shoulder, his wedding ring prominently shown.]
- Tess [thinking it's her husband, Terry]: You're 30 seconds late. I was about to send out a search... [seeing Danny, she is stunned to silence]
- Danny: Hello Tess.
- Tess: What are you doing here?
- Danny: I'm out.
- Tess: You're out?
- Danny: Of prison. You remember the day that I went for cigarettes and didn't come back? You must have noticed.
- Tess: I don't smoke. Don't sit.
- [Danny sits]
- Danny: Now, they tell me I've paid my debt to society...
- Tess: Funny, I never got a check.
- Danny: You're not wearing your ring.
- Tess: I sold it. I don't have a husband, or didn't you get the papers?
- Danny: My last day inside.
- Tess: I told you I'd write. Danny, go now. Before...
- Danny: What? Benedict? [to the waiter] How you doing? Whiskey, and a whiskey.
- Tess: Danny...
- Danny: Tess, you're doing a great job curating the museum. The Vermeer is quite good. It's simple. Vibrant. Although his work definitely fell off as he got older.
- Tess: Remind you of anyone?
- Danny: And I always confuse Monet and Manet. Now, which one married his mistress?
- Tess: Monet.
- Danny: Right, and then Manet had syphilis.
- Tess: They also painted occasionally.
- Danny: I'm going to make this quick; I came here for you. I want to get on with my life. I want you with me.
- Tess: You're a thief and a liar.
- Danny: I only lied about being a thief. I don't do that anymore.
- Tess: Steal?
- Danny: Lie.
- Tess: I'm with someone now who doesn't have to make that kind of distinction.
- Danny: No, he's very clear on both.
- Tess: You know what your problem is?
- Danny: I only have one?
- Tess: You've met too many people like you. I'm with Terry now.
- Danny: Does he make you laugh?
- Tess: He doesn't make me cry.
Almost all of Quentin Tarantino’s pop culture references listed in chronological order.
Just watched this again this past Christmas break. Elijah Wood makes the stupidest faces in this trilogy. I think the only time I thought “Good job, Elijah’s face” was near the end when everyone bowed to him and his Hobbit broskis.
It’s like A Christmas Story Last Supper.
