War and Media

"It's difficult knowing Kent will never play again. Makes the war so real."
"Which is odd, since it was all fiction that got us there in the first place."
"So you don't think we should stand up to tyrants?"
"Sure. I've been waiting for the press to do that for three years now."

Just Once

"He loved me."
"For three weeks a year."
"No, he loved me all the time. I was the one who could only manage three weeks a year. Oh, I'm afraid that I... I'm just afraid that I don't have a generous heart. I'm afraid that I won't have the chance that I had with Kirk ever again."
"You will."
"How can you be so sure?"
"Because nothing in this universe happens just once, Angela. Nothing. Infinity goes in both directions. There is no unique event, no singular moment."
"I don't know what that means."
"It means you will get another chance."

Good Soldier

"I killed people."
"You saved five of your men."
"By shooting a pregnant woman."
"She had a grenade in her hand."
"She had a child in her arms. I shot her and the grenade went off. She died right away. But that kid...took a while. He kept looking at me. But I..."
"You did what a soldier had to do."
"Yeah, you know... I was a good soldier. I was a very good soldier. But a pretty bad human being. Pretty bad human being."

- Harold and Booth in Bones - 1x16 - The Woman in the Tunnel


"Why are you being so nice to me?"
"Because I like you."
"And you can say it just like that?"
"I'm an American, Alfred, and this is 1920. Time to live a little."

Just pretending? You brought pretending into this family, James. You showed us we could change things just by believing them to be different.... [T]he things that matter. We've pretended for some time now that you're part of this family, haven't we? You've come to mean so much to us all that now it doesn't matter if it's true. And even if it isn't true, even if that can never be, I need to go on pretending. Until the end. With you.

"Voh baat jo main aapse kehna chaahta hoon, keh doon?"
"Voh baat jo main sunna chaahti hoon, keh deejiye."
"Voh baat jo lavzon mein adaa ho jaaye, voh baat hi kya hui?"

- Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha in Silsila

Silsila (1)

"Aaj tak to gham-e-rozgaar se daaman nahin chhuda saka. Aapse milne ke baad shaayad gham-e-dil se rishta ho jaaye."
"Yeh aavaaz kahaan se paayi hai aapne?"
"Yeh khoobsoorti kahaan se laayin hain aap?"
"Savaal ka javaab savaal nahin hota."
"Savaal agar khud javaab ho to savaal savaal nahin rehta."
"Gham se bahut gehra rishta hai aapka."
"Khushi to chand ghadiyon ki mehmaan hoti hai. Gham bahut door tak saath deta hai."
"Kitne tanha hain aap."
"Tanha hona ek baat hai. Tanhaayi ke saath rehna aur baat."

- Amitabh Bachchan and Sushma Seth in Silsila
