Our Favorite Quote:'Assume the worst case scenario. Assume catastrophe, and act accordingly.' - Arthur (Those Who Wish Me Dead) Click To Tweet
Connor: What’s “obtuse” mean?
Owen: Like annoyingly insensitive.
Connor: Has a girl ever called you obtuse?
Owen: Only your mother, son.
Connor: Were you?
Owen: It could also mean like very slow to understand. I’m pretty sure I was that.
Connor: That makes more sense.
Owen: Just tell her you’re sorry, and you’ll try harder.
Connor: I’m not taking dating advice from you, dad. No offense.
Owen: Can girls have cooties for one more year, please, while I mentally prepare for what’s coming?
Connor: Are you in trouble? What did you do?
Owen: The right thing, you understand me? I did the right thing.
Connor: If you did the right thing, then why are you so scared?
Ethan: Why did they put you in a fire tower?
Hannah: Well, I’m just lucky, I guess.
Ethan: So, who can tell me what the goal of the day is?
Vic: Threesome sounds pretty good. Or winning the lottery.
Hannah: Threesome for you would be winning the lottery.
Hannah: I’m feeling naughty.
Vic: Well, me being the team player, I guess I can help you with that.
Hannah: Oh, no, no, no. I do not have sex with a man I have seen s**t in the woods.
Vic: Get the f*** out of here. I have the very same rule.
Hannah: You don’t have sex with men who s**t in the woods?
Hannah: I do nothing involving the word “corn”.
Ethan: Look, H, I know what you’re trying to do. Maybe those other a**holes, they don’t see it, but I certainly do. You know, maybe a summer in a firetower by yourself do you some good.
Hannah: Maybe. Maybe I’ll just jump.
Owen: What do you know about my job, son?
Connor: You’re an accountant. At least, I thought you were.
Owen: I’m a forensic accountant, which means, I look for things that don’t add up. And I found some. The man I work for, he was killed today because of what I found. But I still know it, which means they’re going to come after me too.
Owen: The case implicates a lot of people, son. People with a lot to lose. Governors, congressmen. We can only trust people that we know. You understand me?
Ethan: [referring to Hannah] Nothing like arguing with my wife about how I spoke to my ex-girlfriend. Especially when my wife takes her side.
Allison: I’m not taking her side, I’m just not taking yours.
Ethan: You are taking her side, because I don’t even have a side.
Allison: Then you’re on her side.
Ethan: What is that, like an accusation? Baby, are we fighting?
Allison: God, men are simple. We’re not fighting, babe.
Ethan: I love how somehow it’s my fault that I don’t feel the baby kicking.
Allison: Oh, babe, everything’s your fault. The baby is your fault.
Ethan: See, scientifically speaking, it’s fifty percent my fault, fifty percent your fault.
Allison: Is that what you think?
Ethan: That’s what I think.
Allison: I think that everything is your fault until this kid turns four. We clear?
Ethan: Ah! We’re so clear, baby.
Owen: [referring to the note] It’s for you. It’s all my secrets. But I don’t want you to read it, or even look at it. Promise?
Connor: What am I supposed to do with it?
Owen: Give it to someone you trust.
Owen: With a little luck, never.
Sheriff: Sure you don’t want a piece of this steak?
Ethan: You know I don’t eat that crap. That s**t right there is going to kill you.
Sheriff: I think I rode this old bull back in the ’70s.
Sheriff: Go, stop crime.
Ethan: I’ll do my best.
Ethan: You know, you should maybe consider a salad.
Sheriff: Who eats salad for breakfast?
Restaurant Patron: Sheriff. Your wife’s calling. Do you want to take the call?
Sheriff: Absolutely not.
Ryan: How are you holding up?
Hannah: I’m in a twenty-by-twenty box on stilts with no toilet. I have to get out of here.
Ryan: You somewhere better?
Hannah: Define “better”.
Ryan: Giving you a psych eval three days after the event was criminal. None of us could have passed it.
Hannah: I read the wind wrong.
Ryan: They read it wrong, then told you wrong. Not your fault. What choice did you have?
Hannah: I should have gone to them, and instead I was a f***ing coward.
Ryan: Then you’d be dead too.
Hannah: Well, that’s our job. Do you think about it?
Ryan: Every day.
Ryan: Listen, don’t do anything stupid. There’s a lot of people who care about you.
Ryan: Come on, there’s me. There’s Ben. There’s me.
Connor: [as they pass Jack changing a tire] Are you going to help?
Owen: Absolutely not.
Owen: [after he’s been shot] There’s a fallen tree, right there to the right. You hide under that. Don’t make a sound, okay? No matter what you see. Creeks lead to rivers, rivers lead to towns. You call the news, you call the TV station. You give them this.
Connor: I want to stay with you.
Owen: I love you, son.
Jack: [referring to Owen] Will this f***er ever die?
Patrick: [after they’ve killed Owen] S**t. We left that scene a mess.
Jack: Oh, you want to clean it up? It is what it is. This job needed two teams. F***ing two teams, like I told them.
Patrick: Fascinating where they decide to save money.
Hannah: Stop! I’m not going to hurt you. I want to see where the blood’s coming from.
Connor: It’s not my blood!
Hannah: Whose blood is it?
