Chasing Amy Quotes

  • Holden McNeil: There's a world of fucking difference between typical high school sex and two guys at once! They fucking used you?
    Alyssa Jones: I used them! You don't think I would've let it happen if I hadn't wanted it to, do you?! I was an experimental girl, for Christ's sake! Maybe you knew early on that your track was from point 'a' to 'b' - but unlike you I wasn't given a fucking map at birth, so I tried it all! That is until we - that's you and I - got together, and suddenly, I was sated. Can't you take some fucking comfort in that? You turned out to be all I was ever looking for - the missing piece in the big fucking puzzle! (tries to calm down) Look I'm sorry I let you believe that you were the only guy I'd ever been with. I should've been more honest. But it seemed to make you feel special in a way that me telling you over an over again how incredible you are would never get across. (She touches his face. He pulls back. She stares at him, hurt and pissed.) Do you mean to tell me that - while you have zero problem with me sleeping with half the women in New York City - you have some sort of half-assed, mealy-mouthed objection to pubescent antics, that took place almost ten years ago? What the fuck is your problem?!?

    Holden McNeil: (eyes are downcast. Alyssa waits for a response.) I want us to be something that we can't.
    Holden McNeil: [eyes are downcast. Alyssa waits for a response] I want us to be something that we can't.
    Alyssa Jones: And what's that?
    Holden McNeil: (beat) A normal couple.
    Holden McNeil: A normal couple.


  • Holden McNeil: What are you doing?
    Alyssa Jones: Get back in the car and get out of here.
    Holden McNeil: Your'e going to hitch to New York?
    Alyssa Jones: Y'ep.
    Holden McNeil: Aren't you at least going to comment?
    Alyssa Jones: Here's my comment fuck you.
    Holden McNeil: Why?
    Alyssa Jones: That was so unfair. You know how unfair that was.
    Holden McNeil: It's unfair that I'm in love with you?
    Alyssa Jones: No, it's unfortunate that you're in love with me. It's unfair that you felt the fucking need to unburden your soul about it. Do you remember for a fucking second who I am?
    Holden McNeil: So? People change.
    Alyssa Jones: Oh, it's that simple? You fall in love with me and want a romantic relationship, nothing changes for you with the exception of feeling hunky-dorey all the time. But what about-me? It's not that simple, is it? I can't just get into a relationship with you without throwing my whole fucking world into upheaval!
    Holden McNeil: But that's every relationship! There's always going to be a period of adjustment.
    Alyssa Jones: Period of adjustment?!? (hitting him) THERE'S NO 'PERIOD OF ADJUSTMENT' HOLDEN! I'M FUCKING GAY! THAT'S WHO I AM! AND YOU ASSUME I CAN TURN THAT AROUND JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT A CRUSH?!?
    Alyssa Jones: Period of adjustment?!? [hitting him] THERE'S NO 'PERIOD OF ADJUSTMENT' HOLDEN! I'M FUCKING GAY! THAT'S WHO I AM! AND YOU ASSUME I CAN TURN THAT AROUND JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT A CRUSH?!?
    Holden McNeil: if this is a crush... then I don't know if I could take the real thing if it ever happens.
    Alyssa Jones: Go home, Holden.


  • Holden McNeil: I love you.
    Alyssa Jones: (beat) You love me.
    Alyssa Jones: [beat] You love me.
    Holden McNeil: I love you. And not in a friendly way, although I think we're great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy-dog way, although I'm sure that's what you'll call it. And it's not because you're unattainable. I love you. Very simple, very truly. You're the epitome of every attribute and quality I've ever looked for in another person. I know you think of me as just a friend and crossing that line is the furthest thing from an option you'd ever consider. But I can't do this any longer. I can't stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can't look into your eyes without feeling that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can't talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are. I know this will probably queer our friendship - no pun intended - but I had to say it, because I've never felt this before, and I like who I am because of it. And if bringing it to light means we can't hang out anymore, then that hurts me. But I couldn't allow another day to go by without getting it out there, regardless of the outcome, which by the look on your face is to be the inevitable shoot-down. And I'll accept that But I know some part of you is hesitating for a moment, and if there is a moment of hesitation, that means you feel something too. All I ask is that you not suppress that - at least for ten minutes - and try to dwell in it before you dismiss it. There isn't another soul on this fucking planet who's ever made me the person I am when I'm with you, and I would risk this friendship for the chance to take it to the next plateau. Because it's there between you and me. You can't deny that. And even if we never speak again after tonight, please know that I'm forever changed because of you and what you've meant to me, which - while I do appreciate it - I'd never need a painting of birds bought at a diner to remind me of.


  • Silent Bob: Bitch, what you don't know about me I could just about squeeze in the Grand fuckin' Canyon. Did you know I always wanted to be a dancer in Vegas? No? Bet you didn't even know that shit did you?


  • Silent Bob: Chasing Amy...
    Holden McNeil: What? What did you say?
    Silent Bob: You're chasing Amy.
    Jay: Whadda you look so shocked for, man? Fat bastard does this all the time. He thinks just 'coz he don't say anything it'll have some huge impact when he does open his fucking mouth-
    Silent Bob: Jesus Christ, why don't you shut up? Always yap-yap--yappin' all the time, gimme a fucking headache.
