Starring: Sigourney Weaver, Kevin Kline, Morena Baccarin, Rob Delaney, Beverly D’Angelo, David Rasche, Rebecca Henderson
Comedy drama directed and co-written by Maya Forbes and Wally Wolodarsky. The Good House (2022) centers on Hildy Good (Sigourney Weaver), a New England realtor, who ignites long-buried emotions and family secrets when she rekindles a romance with her old high school flame, Frank Getchell (Kevin Kline), and becomes dangerously entwined in one person’s reckless behavior. Hildy is then propelled toward a reckoning with the one person she’s been avoiding for decades, herself.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Hildy Good: My family has lived in Wendover for almost three hundred years. We have the beaches, and the breezes, and the best damn views on the North Shore of Boston.
Hildy Good: Frank, I’ve been calling you for days! There’s a lawyer from Boston who is very interested in your waterfront lot. Do you ever answer your phone?
Frank Getchell: No.
Hildy Good: I was the top broker on the North Shore, and if everything had gone according to plan, I’d be fine. That’s not what happened.
Hildy Good: [at her family intervention] Let me introduce everyone first. This is my eldest daughter, Tess, and her husband, Michael. This is Lottie. This is their lovely house in Beverly, which I happily financed. This is my younger daughter, Emily. She’s a little dramatic. Emily drove all the way up from New York City for this. Isn’t that thoughtful?
Hildy Good: [at her family intervention] This is my ex-husband, Scott, to whom I pay alimony, even though he left me for a man, after twenty-two years of marriage.
Hildy Good: [at her family intervention] That’s Wendy Heatheron. This is eighteen months ago, when she still worked for me, before raiding my Rolodex and stealing all my clients.
Hildy Good: [at her family intervention] And I didn’t know who this person was.
Joyce: I’m Joyce Hildy. Would you like to have a seat? We have people here who love you, and have some things they’d like to say to you, if you’ll listen.
Hildy Good: Well, if we are really going to do this, I need a drink.
Tess Good: Oh, my God.
Emily Good: Mom!
Hildy Good: I’m kidding.
Hildy Good: My daughters would freak if they could see me right now.
Rebecca McAllister: Don’t they want you to be happy?
Rebecca McAllister: Your house is so cozy.
Hildy Good: Well, my ex-husband, Scott, chose nearly everything you see. He left me for a man.
Rebecca McAllister: Well, that must have been devastating.
Hildy Good: Well, I’m surprised you didn’t know actually. Secrets are hard to keep in this town. Although, we do all try our damnedest.
Hildy Good: Maybe you also haven’t heard that I went to rehab a little bit ago for drinking.
Rebecca McAllister: A gay husband will do that to you.
Rebecca McAllister: I can’t tell you how many of my friends have been to rehab. They’re all fine. Meaning, they all drank.
Hildy Good: Cheers to that! They never tell you that in rehab.
Emily Good: Mom, do you think I’m excited to ask you for money?
Hildy Good: No. I’m sure it’s very hard.
Hildy Good: Rents, mortgages, tuitions. I need a good year.
Hildy Good: [as she’s carrying a box of wine] What? I know it looks bad, but…
Hildy Good: In my mind wine is not really drinking. Vodka definitely is.
Frank Getchell: Hey Hildy.
Hildy Good: Oh, Frank! You were spying on me.
Frank Getchell: I came here for some peace and quiet.
Hildy Good: Uh-huh.
Frank Getchell: Yeah. Instead, I got an eyeful.
Hildy Good: There was a time in my life I was quite in love with Frankie Getchell. You would’ve been too. All my friends were.
Hildy Good: You want to come over for dinner?
Frank Getchell: Dinner?
Hildy Good: It’s this meal people eat at the end of the day. It’s pretty popular.
Frank Getchell: Sure.
Tess Good: I wish your mom had been around to play with us when we were little.
Hildy Good: My mom didn’t do this stuff.
Tess Good: Right. The good old days.
Emily Good: Are you dating Frank Getchell?
Hildy Good: What if I was?
Emily Good: Ew!
Frank Getchell: [as the dog barks] You’re really throwing me off!
Peter Newbold: [to Hildy] It’s okay to be angry and scared. It’s okay to ask for help.
Tess Good: I’m tired of sweeping everything under the rug.
Hildy Good: I didn’t realize I was doing that.
Hildy Good: My girls really like you.
Frank Getchell: They’re good girls.
Hildy Good: I was talking about my dogs.
Hildy Good: [to Frank] I feel like myself with you. Usually I only feel like myself when I have a drink in my hand.
Frank Getchell: Do what you need to do, Hildy. I’m not going anywhere.
