Quotable Quotes:

"I guess I'm pretty much of a lone wolf. I don't say I don't like people at all but, to tell you the truth, I only like them if I have a chance to look deep into their hearts and their minds. If I find there something, something worthwhile, some... some human kindness, some sympathy." (IMDB)

"It's the first time I've ever seen you look ugly. And that makes me kind of happy."
