Sam

  • You know, it seems to me that, I mean, except for being a little mentally ill, she's pretty normal.

Joon

  • Some cultures are defined by their relationship to cheese.
  • Don't underestimate the mentally ill. We know how to count.
  • Having sort of a Boo Radley moment, aren't we?

Benny

  • I am serious. I'm always serious. I'm too serious.

Dialogue

Sam: You don't like raisins?
Joon: Not really.
Sam: Why?
Joon: They used to be fat and juicy and now they're twisted. They had their lives stolen. Well, they taste sweet, but really they're just humiliated grapes. I can't say I am a big supporter of the raisin council.
Sam: Did you see those, those raisins on TV? The ones that sing and dance and stuff?
Joon: They scare me.
Sam: Yeah me too
Joon: It's sick. The commercial people they make them sing and dance so people will eat them.
Sam: It's a shame about raisins.
