Quotes from the movie “Dan In Real Life”

Dan Burns: “Instead of telling our young people to plan ahead, we should tell them to plan to be surprised.”

Dan Burns: “You know that feeling in your heart? When your heart is just pounding, like it’s actually outside your ribs. Exposed, vulnerable, but wonderful and awful, and heartsick, and alive, all at the same time?”

Dan Burns: “What don’t I understand, Cara? Please, help me out. What is it? Is it frustrating that you can’t be with this person? That there’s something keeping you apart? That there’s something about this person that you can connect with? And whenever you’re near this person, you don’t know what to say, and you say everything that’s in your mind and in your heart, and you know that if you could just be together, that this person would help you become the best possible version of yourself?”

Marie: “I’m looking for a book… something that can help me deal with what might be an awkward situation. Something funny might be nice, but not necessarily big, ‘ha, ha, ha,’ ‘laugh, laugh, laugh’ funny, and certainly not make-fun-of-other-people funny but rather something human-funny. And, uh, if it could uh, sneak up on you, surprise you, and at the same time make you think that what you thought wasn’t only right, in a wrong kind of way, but when you’re wrong, there’s a certain rightness in your wrongness… Well, what I mean is, more importantly, I’m looking to be swept up! And at the same time, not.”
Dan Burns: “Well, you rarely find all that in one book.”
