Fate is overrated

Quotes from 'Lars and the Real Girl (2007)'

Gus: Well, it's not like you're one thing or the other, okay? There's still a kid inside but you grow up when you decide to do right, okay, and not what's right for you, what's right for everybody, even when it hurts.

Lars Lindstrom: Okay, like what?

Gus: Like, you know, like, you don't jerk people around, you know, and you don't cheat on your woman, and you take care of your family, you know, and you admit when you're wrong, or you try to, anyways. That's all I can think of, you know - it sound like it's easy and for some reason it's not.


Sewing Circle Lady 3 - Hazel: Well that's how life is, Lars.

Mrs. Gruner: Everything at once.

Sewing Circle Lady 2 - Sally: We brought casseroles.

Lars Lindstrom: Thank you.

Lars Lindstrom: [Lars looks around the sewing circle. The three ladies are knitting and doing needlepoint] Um, is there something I should be doing right now?

Mrs. Gruner: No, dear. You eat.

Sewing Circle Lady 2 - Sally: We came over to sit.

Sewing Circle Lady 3 - Hazel: That's what people do when tragedy strikes.

Sewing Circle Lady 2 - Sally: They come over, and sit.
