Must Love Dogs (2005) Poster

John Cusack: Jake



  • Jake : You know, but I think your heart grows back bigger. You know? Once you get the shit beat out of you. And, um, the universe lets your heart expand that way, and I think that's the function of all this pain and heartache that you go through and you gotta go through that to come out to a better place and that's how I see it, anyway.

  • Jake : It's a long story, something about the violation of expectations and a crushing loss of faith, and love, and life, and art.

    Bill : So it's a girl?

    Jake : Yes.

    Bill : I've had a little bit of girl trouble myself lately. But it is better to have loved and lost, am I right?

    Jake : She was a unique constellation of attributes; she was my Halley's comet. But the universe is designed to break your heart, right?

    Bill : A philosopher as well as an artist, yes, it is we who suffer most.

    Jake : Yes, with the possible exception of the victims of violent crime

  • Jake : That's what it was like when I met Sarah. Anyway that's what I

    Sarah : I made you nauseous?

    Jake : In a good way - I was lovesick.

    Sarah : [laughing]  That was good, honey.

    title cards : [in front of two dogs who played Mother Teresa]  No animals were harmed during the filming of this movie.

    title cards : Though we were petted within an inch of our lives.

  • Jake : She did not see my A game!

    Charlie : Sounds like she didn't see your B or C game either.

  • Jake : Oh Charlie, you should've seen this girl; she's shy, she's fragile, she's self conscious, she has no idea how beautiful she is... she's a M-E-S-S-S... it's FAN-TAS-TIC!

  • [Jake and Sarah are trying to buy some condoms because neither of them had any; Jake returns from a store to the car] 

    Jake : They're out!

    Sarah : How can they be out?

    Jake : I have a theory about this. Everyone in the city is having sex at the exact same time... except for us. But we will press on.

  • Carol : Hello! Don't worry, it's just me. I'm in the kitchen. I filled your freezer again. There's now enough meat to feed every guy who answered your ad and still...

    [Walks in from the kitchen and sees Jake] 

    Carol : Whoa.

    Sarah : Jake Anderson, my sister Carol. Jake did, in fact, answer the ad.

    Jake : Do I get my meat?

    [Carol tosses him the meat] 

  • Jake : [Driving in search of condoms]  So this pre-school of yours, it's what? Traditional, developmental, Montessori?

    Sarah : Yeah, yeah, all that. Drugstore!
