Fuzzy stuff...

Jack Black as Miles Dumont: "Why am I attracted to a person I know isn't good?"

(…)

Kate Winslet as Iris Simpkins: "Because you're hoping you're wrong. And every time she does something that tells you she's no good, you would ignore it. And every time she comes through and surprises you, she wins you over and you lose that argument with yourself: that she's not for you.

(…)

What I am trying to say is I understand the feeling as small and as insignificant as humanly possible, and how it can actually ache in places that you didn't know you had inside you. And doesn't matter how many haircuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of chardonnay you drink with your friends, you still go to bed every night, going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong, or how you could've misunderstood. And how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy and Sometimes you can even convince yourself that she'll see the light and show up at your door.

After all that, however long all that may be, you go somewhere new, and you'll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again and little pieces of your soul will finally come back and all those fuzzy stuff, those years of your life you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade... "
