While Luke Wilson looked more the Hollywood leading man than older brother Owen, his tendency toward independent films with smaller audiences often put him in his sibling's shadow. Both brothers got their start in college friend Wes Anderson's student film-turned-cult favorite "Bottle Rocket" (1996), and from the critical success of that fresh and funny heist flick, they were courted by Hollywood. Wilson's significant talent for bringing depth and charm to intellectual melancholics was reduced to roles as all-around good guys - including subcategories of dimwits and cuckolded men - in mainstream comedies like "Legally Blonde" (2001), "Old School" (2003), "The Family Stone" (2005) and "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" (2006). His more soulful achievements were lesser-seen, with Wilson re-teaming with Anderson to play an adrift former child prodigy in "The Royal Tenenbaums" (2001) and earning critical favor for the period family drama "My Dog Skip" (2000) and John Dahl's "You Kill Me" (2006). Wilson managed to recreate some of the spark of his screen debut as writer, director and co-star (alongside brother Owen) of the smart comedy "The Wendell Baker Story" (2005), generally remaining below the radar for a string of independent comedies and surfacing every few years to lend support in broad comedies.

QUOTES FROM Luke Wilson CHARACTERS

Willie Morris says: Haven't seen you around much.

Dink Jenkins says: Yeah, I've been pretty busy.

Willie Morris says: I'm playin' some ball now, ya know.

Dink Jenkins says: Oh yeah? That's good.

Willie Morris says: Yeah. Right. Well, see ya, Dink, it's openin' day. That's what they call the first game of the season, and well, I was sort of wonderin' if... I was hopin' that maybe... you might come.

Dink Jenkins says: Yeah, sure, kid. That'd be fine.

Willie Morris says: Really? Okay, great! Well, I'd better get on down there. See ya!

Dink Jenkins says: Thanks for pickin' my number.

Richie Tenenbaum says: Did you just say you're on mescaline?

Eli Cash says: I did indeed. Very much so.

Royal Tenenbaum says: You know, Richie, this illness, this closeness to death... it's had a profound affect on me. I feel like a different person, I really do.

Richie Tenenbaum says: Dad, you were never dying.

Royal Tenenbaum says: But I'm going to live.

Dink Jenkins says: It's not the dyin' that scares me, it's the killin'.

Chas Tenenbaum says: Is it dark?

Richie Tenenbaum says: Of course it's dark, it's a suicide note.

Jack Morris says: (Willie runs off to find Skip) Sometimes he gets mad and says things he doesn't mean. He gets it from his mother. When I got back from Spain, I got into accountin'. I figured I could hide behind a desk. I looked down, and I didn't so much as look up for a whole year. When I finally did, people weren't starin' at me anymore. I guess they kinda forgot about it.

Dink Jenkins says: Well, Mr. Morris. You got a purple heart. I got a yellow stripe. You can trust me. They don't forget about cowards.

Jack Morris says: Well, folks like to keep things small, Dink. Fit you into one pocket or the other. Give a man a label, and you never really need to get to know him. My son, he looks up to you, Dink. Now because you can run or throw a ball. You're his hero because you're his friend. And that's what he needs. A friend.

Dink Jenkins says: You think I don't know what folks are sayin'. That old Dink's a coward?. Huh?. Well I know. And you know?. They're right. I got scared. And I ran. You think it was 'cause I was afraid of dyin'?. Because I wished I was dead of plenty of times.

Willie Morris says: Then what was it?.

Dink Jenkins says: It ain't the dyin' that scary, boy. It's the killin'. Now look, that dog ain't lost. You just need to know where to find him. There's gotta be at least one place around here that you hadn't thought of to look at, right?.

Dink Jenkins says: You bawlin' like a big baby 'cause you lost that ball game?.

Willie Morris says: What do you know about it?. You didn't come you big liar. Leave me alone

Dink Jenkins says: That's how it is, isn't it. You're a hero today, and then you're a goat tomorrow. Now, I didn't come because games don't mean nothin' to me anymore.

Willie Morris says: It's not the game. It's Skip. He's gone for good.

Dink Jenkins says: For good?. Now how do you know that?. You some kind of fortune teller?.

Willie Morris says: I got mad at him and I hit him. And he ran away. Just like you ran away. Skip was never afraid of nothin'.

Mitch says: I wasn't looking for a girl like that.

Beanie says: Well, Columbus wasn't looking for America, my man, but that turned out to be pretty okay for everyone.

Mitch says: I'd like to welcome you all to the Mitch Martin Freedom Festival. Now for those of you who don't know who Mitch Martin is, he's the very successful, very disease-free gentleman standing by the mini-bar. Now, courtesy of Speaker City, which is slashing prices on everything from beepers to DVD players, give a warm welcome Harrison welcome to my pal and your favourite, Snoop Dogg.

Mitch says: I'm here for the gangbang...

Mitch says: Well, see. Blue's dead. Frank's divorced. I lost my house. Nicole thinks I'm a total jackass. And now we got nine kids who are gonna get expelled from school, and you're not even gonna help them.

Mitch says: At this point, you may be asking yourself, why am I holding this 30 pound cinderblock in my hands? You might also ask yourself, why does this cinderblock have a long piece of string tied to it? And finally, why is the other end of this string tied securely to your penis?

Mitch says: Sorry, your seatbelt seems to be broken. What do you recommend I do?

Taxi Driver says: I recommend you stop being such a faggot. You're in the backseat.

Mitch says: True love is hard to find, sometimes you think you have true love and then you catch the early flight home from San Diego and a couple of nude people jump out of your bathroom blindfolded like a goddamn magic show ready to double team your girlfriend...

Norman says: You still smokin' that stuff?

Derek says: No no no, I'm gonna stop, all right? *You* used to smoke, we used to smoke *together*.

Norman says: I used to piss my pants and then I stopped!

Chas Tenenbaum says: Why did you try to kill yourself?

Etheline Tenenbaum says: Don't press him right now.

Richie Tenenbaum says: I wrote a suicide note.

Chas Tenenbaum says: You did?

Richie Tenenbaum says: Yeah. Right after I regained consciousness.

Rita says: You think Einstein walked around thinkin' everyone was a bunch of dumb shits?

Pvt. Joe Bauers says: Yeah... Hadn't thought of that.

Rita says: Now you know why he built that bomb.

Dink Jenkins says: You bawling like a big baby 'cause you lost that ball game?

Willie Morris says: What do you know about it? You didn't come you big liar. Leave me alone!

Dink Jenkins says: That's how it is, isn't it? You're a hero today, and then you're a goat tomorrow. Now I didn't come because games don't mean nothing to me anymore.

Willie Morris says: It's not the game. It's Skip. He's gone for good.

Dink Jenkins says: For good? Now how do you know that? You some kind of fortune teller?

Willie Morris says: I got mad at him and I hit him. And he ran away. Just like you ran away. Skip was never afraid of nothing.

Dink Jenkins says: You think I don't know what folks are saying? That old Dink's a coward? Huh? Well I know. And you know what? They're right. I got scared. And I ran. You think it was 'cause I was afraid of dying? Because I wished I was dead plenty of times.

Willie Morris says: Then what was it?

Kumar says: Man, I blew it. I blew it, man.

Anthony Adams says: Kumar, what were you doing in the freezer?

Kumar says: I don't know, man. I loose my touch, man.

Dignan says: Did you ever have a touch to loose, man?

Pvt. Joe Bauers says: You know, there was a time in this country when smart people were considered cool... well maybe not cool, but they did things like build ships and pyramids and they even went to the moon.

Max Fischer says: I like your nurses uniform, guy.

Dr. Peter Flynn says: These are OR scrubs.

Max Fischer says: 'Oh, are' they?

David Fox says: [having seen a snuff movie] At least they could've provided us with a little bit of porn.

Anthony Adams says: So the word on the street is . . . I heard you love me.

Anthony Adams says: So the word on the street is... I heard you love me.

Anthony Adams says: The preparation was good. I think that is your specialty.

Pvt. Joe Bauers says: Why me? Every time Metsler says, "Lead, follow, or get out of the way," I get out of the way.

Pvt. Joe Bauers says: Why me? Every time Metsler says, 'Lead, follow, or get out of the way,' I get out of the way.
