Dick Quote #98

Quote from Dick in Body & Soul & Dick

Dick: Promise me you'll never collapse and be hauled away under a sheet, because the thought of you lying there, purple, rigid and distended, just makes me so sad.
Mary: 'Kay.
Dick: You know what we should do right now? Run out of here, grab a couple of horses, right bareback through the woods all night and make love in a meadow at sunrise.
Mary: I have a class in five minutes, and that's just the first of my reservations.
Dick: Forget class. Let's live! Let's taste danger. Let's go for the gusto, consequences be damned. Let's drive fast and eat cheese.
Mary: Are you insane?
Dick: I've simply awakened to the sensual possibilities of everything around me. [sniffs Mary's head]
Nina: You know, I think she's fully inflated.

Quote from Harry

Dick: Why does death have to be so inconvenient?
Harry: [holding an apple] Mmm, to die, to sleep. To sleep, perchance to dream. Oh! [turns apple around to reveal three bite marks that look like the holes of a skull] There's the rub, for in that sleep of death what dreams may come when we have shuffled off this mortal coil must give us pause.
Dick: What's that from?
Harry: I don't know, some Mel Gibson movie.

Quote from Dick

Mary: I can't believe this. I've never seen anybody die before.
Dick: I know, it's amazing. One minute, he's active, and the next, he's inert. First he's limber, and then he's stiff. His eyes are twinkly, then they're milky. He's rosy, then sallow. Oily, then dry. Gurgly, then silent.
Mary: Oh, will you stop!

Quote from Dick

Dick: If we measure X in grams and Y in centimeters per second, then Z is measured in a unit of energy we call ergs. The complete conversion of one gram of mass into energy thus releases one times three times 10 to the 10th power squared, which brings me to another point-- Your lives are fragile, and you're all going to die!
