Not a whisper of a thrill. This relationship has all the passion of a pair of tit mice. I want you to get swept away out there. I want you to levitate.
I want you to sing with rapture and dance like a Dervish. Be deliriously happy or at least leave yourself open to be.
I shall do my utmost. I know it's a cornball thing, but love is passion. Someone you can't live without.
I say fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy, and who'll love you the same way back. How do you you find 'em? Well, you forget your head and you listen to your heart.
I'm not hearing any heart. Because the truth is, honey, there's no sense living your life without this. But you have to try, because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived.
It's hard to let go, isn't it? Yes it is, Bill. Should I be afraid? Not a man like you. How's your working going? While you were shaving this morning, you weren't just shaving, you weren't just shaving. What do you mean?
You were hatching ideas, making plans, arriving at decisions, right? Yeah, I guess so. So you understand the concept. While part of you is busy doing one thing, another part of you is doing another, perhaps even attending to the problems of your work. So you understand the concept, Bill. Now multiply that by infinity, take that to the depths of forever, and you still barely have a glimpse of what I'm taking about.
I want you to know how much I love you, that you've given a meaning to my life that I had no right to expect, that no one can ever take from me. I love you so much.Meet Joe Black (1998) - Bill's Birthday Speech Scene (10/10) - Movieclips
And I want you to promise me something. I don't want you to ever worry about me.

And if anything should happen, I'm gonna be okay. And everything's gonna be all right. But it's only recently your affairs here have piqued my interest. The natural curiosity of me, the most lasting and significant element in existence has come to see you. I want to have a look around before I take you.
It requires competence wisdom and experience, all those things they say about you in testimonials. The one to do what? Show me around, be my guide. And in return you get Minutes, days, weeks, let's not get encumbered by detail, what matters is that I stay interested. Oh Bill, come on. The question you've been asking yourself with increased regularity, at odd moments, panting through the extra game of handball, when you ran for the plane in Delhi, when you sat up in bed last night and hit the floor in the office this morning.
The question that is in the back of your throat, choking the blood to your brain, ringing in your ears over and over as you put it to yourself. You want me to be your guide? You fit the bill, Bill. I want to be friends.
Anthony Hopkins: William Parrish
I have many friends. With you here and seemingly occupied, how's your work going, I mean, elsewhere? While you were shaving this morning, you weren't just shaving. What do you mean? You were hatching ideas, making plans, arriving at decisions, right?
Yeah, I guess so Joe Black: So you get the concept. While part of you is doing one thing, another part of you is doing another, perhaps even attending to the problems of your work. Of course Joe Black: So you understand the idea. Now multiply that by infinity, take that to the depth of forever, and you still will barely have a glimpse of what I'm talking about.
What an odd pairing. You know about money, don't you? It can't buy happiness?

I not evil, woman. And what you is then? I from that next place. You waitin' here to take us? Like you is the bus driver to there? No, man, I on 'oliday. Some spot you pick. Pain is bad, bad. I don't have nothin' to do with these things, you know. Make it go away. Doctor Lady make it alright. This pain go through and through me. Take me to that next place. It's not your time now. You can't fool with the way things got to be.
And who would've thought Tell me you love me now. I love you now. I love you always. I don't care, Bill. How perfect for you - to take whatever you want because it pleases you. Then what is it? Some aimless infatuation which, for the moment, you feel like indulging - it's missing everything that matters.
Trust, responsibility, taking the weight for your choices and feelings, and spending the rest of your life living up to them.
And above all, not hurting the object of your love. So that's what love is, according to William Parrish? Multiply it by infinity, and take it to the depth of forever, and you will still have barely a glimpse of what I'm talking about.
Those were my words.
You're at the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong woman! Are you threatening me? Yeah, I certainly hope so. It's hard to let go, isn't it? Yes it is, Bill. What can I tell you? What will we do now? The Man from the Coffee Shop: It'll come to us. Should I be afraid? Not a man like you.
