Vanilla Sky (2001) Poster


Tom Cruise: David Aames



  • [last lines to Sofia] 

    David : Do you remember what you told me once? That every passing minute is a another chance to turn it all around.

    Sofía : I'll find you again.

    David : I'll see you in another life... when we are both cats.

  • David : The little things... there's nothing bigger, is there?

  • David : My dreams are a cruel joke. They taunt me. Even in my dreams I'm an idiot... who knows he's about to wake up to reality. If I could only avoid sleep. But I can't. I try to tell myself what to dream. I try to dream that I am flying. Something free. It never works...

  • David : Look at us. I'm frozen and you're dead, and I love you.

    Sofía : It's a problem.

    David : I lost you when I got in that car. I'm sorry.

  • Julie : [Desperately]  You fucked me four times the other night, David! You've been inside me!

    David : [Not taking her seriously yet]  Julie...

    Julie : I swallowed your cum! That means something!

  • David : My father wrote about this in his book. Chapter 1... Page 1... Paragraph 1: What is the answer to 99 out of 100 questions?... Money.

  • David : I want to live a real life... I don't want to dream any longer.

  • [David receives his facial prosthetic] 

    Dr. Pomeranz : It's a helpful unit.

    David : Good. Because for a minute there, I thought we were talking about


    David : a fucking mask!

    Dr. Pomeranz : It's only a mask... if you treat it that way.

    David : Oh, no. It's great. This completely takes care of Hallowe'en. But what about the other 364 days of the year?

  • David : We almost died.

    Brian : I know. My own death was right there in front of me and you know what happened? Your life flashed before my eyes.

    David : How was it?

    Brian : Almost worth dying for...

  • Dr. Curtis McCabe : And you didn't immediately wanna sleep with her?

    David : Well, you know, I'm a pleasure delayer.

  • David : I like your life.

    Sofía : Well, it's mine and you can't have it!

  • David : You're a shrink! You gotta be better than that!

    Dr. Curtis McCabe : Let's not stereotype each other. Not all rich kids are soulless, and not all psychologists care about disease.

  • David : I wanna wake up! Tech support! It's a nightmare! Tech support! Tech support!

  • Dr. Curtis McCabe : You do understand that our time is limited, don't you?

    David : If I talk... you'll just think I'm crazy.

    Dr. Curtis McCabe : With all the possible respect I can offer a man wearing a latex mask and spouting conspiracy theories, David, believe me, you've crossed that bridge.

  • Thomas Tipp : But I say this with complete love. Claim your life. Learn to be an asshole. Don't...

    David : Two's enough.

    Thomas Tipp : Forgive me. But I still believe in this family, David, even if it's only you.

  • David : These? These are more than headaches. These are steel plates slicing through my every thought.

  • [Sofía is taking David's mask off] 

    David : How bad is it?

    Sofía : ...Well... your ears are in the right place... And the rest of it... is not bad at all. It's perfect!

  • David : Somebody died. It was me.

  • Sofía : I have to get some sleep. Truthfully, I also work as a dental assistant.

    David : Boy, am I going to the wrong dentist!

  • David : [to Dr. McCabe]  What's the answer to 99 out of 100 questions?... Money!

  • Edmund : Consequences, David. It's the little things.

    David : The little things... there's nothing bigger, is there?

  • Sofía : What about you? What's your nickname?

    David : Citizen Dildo.

    Sofía : Hmm. You are not staying over.

  • David : I wasn't hitting on Sophia.

    Brian : Oh, fine. Whatever you say. I'm crazy. I'm blind.

    David : You're not blind, you're drinking Jack Daniels, and when you drink Jack you start in with that, "Frank Sinatra, she shot me down, give me a cigarette, King of Sad" thing.

    Brian : That I do. Give me a cigarette.

    David : I'll find one.

    Brian : But wait. You're rich and women love you, and I'm from Ohio and I'm drunk. Can I tell you the truth?

    David : Everybody does.

    Brian : I dig her. And I've never said this to you before about any girl, but she could be - could be, could be, could be - the girl of my fucking dreams.

    David : You're not from Ohio.

    Brian : I know. But if she fucks up our friendship, she can go to hell. I won't allow it. We are bros.

    David : I feel the same way.

    Brian : Sure you do.

  • David : Where's Sofia? WHERE IS SHE?

    Julie : I AM SOFIA.

  • David : I WANNA WAKE UP!

  • Brian : [after they had a near fatal crash with a Mack truck]  My own death was right there in front of me, and do you know what happened? YOUR life flashed before my eyes.

    David : How was it?

    Brian : Almost worth dying for.

  • David : Even in my dreams I feel like an idiot who's about to wake up.

  • Brian : I'm going to say this once, because this is the last time we're ever going to talk. I was your only friend

    David : You have revealed yourself to me.

  • David : [has taken the mask off and is ordering drinks from a large barman at the club]  Give me a Budweiser and a shot of tequila

    Barman : [avoiding eye contact with David]  What kind of tequila?

    David : [trying to make eye contact]  What did you say to me?

    Barman : [Still avoiding looking at David]  I said, what kind of tequila?

    David : Why don't you ask me to my face, bitch?

    Barman : [finally makes eye contact] 

    David : Patron, if you have it

    David : [later]  Another shot, another Bud

    Barman : [pouring shot]  This one's on the house

    David : Why?

    Barman : It just is

    [locks eyes with Daivd] 

    Barman : bitch.

  • David : I can't believe you just said that. That is what I love about you. Only you would say something like that.

    [Sofia looks uneasy] 

    David : You'll meet me in another life when we are both cats! Cats! Ha-ha! Meow!

  • David : Technical Support!

  • David : He never watched television, and yet his biggest magazine is still the TV Digest.

  • David : And to what do I owe this pleasure?

    Sofía : The pleasure of Sofia Serrano.

  • David : See, I've got this little problem. I've got a stalker.

    Sofía : It doesn't sound life threatening.

    David : But I need a cover. I need for you to pretend we're having a scintillating conversation, and you are wildly entertained.

    [Both laugh] 

    David : I know it's tough.

    Sofía : I'll improvise.

  • David : Thomas Tipp was right; people will read again.

  • David : Is it me?

  • David : Say everything now, now, now, now.

  • David : Doc, once you've been driven off a bridge at 80 miles an hour, somehow you don't invite happiness in without a full body search.

  • Julie : If I wasn't me, I'd buy my album.

    David : You know, if you can reach one person.

  • David : [looking at himself in the mirror] 

    Guy in Bathroom : Dude, fix your fucking face.

    [friend laughs] 

    David : [starts laughing] 

  • David : [Referring to his board of directors]  Who could I trust? The ants are taking over the ant hill. Who could I trust?

  • David : How do you think watertight contracts are broken?

  • David : You weren't invited...

  • Julie : Why did you tell Brian I was your "Fuckbuddy"?

    David : I never said that.

  • David : The sweet and sour speech again?

  • David : No. Tell me now.

    Sofía : I'll tell you later.

    David : If something's wrong please tell me now.

  • [looking at a caricature sketch Sofia has drawn of him and laughing] 

    David : No, it's something that you'd see on a wall in a steak-house in *Hell*.

  • David : [In Julia's car]  Let's go to your house and we'll talk or something. I want to see where you live.

  • Julie : Don't you realise David, that when you sleep with someone your body makes a promise even if your mind does not?

    David : [gives her an odd look]
