Clare: What did you tell Howard Silk?
Heinrich: It won't make a difference, will it?
Clare: If you somehow compromised me or my associates, there are things that must be made right.
Heinrich: When I tell you, what happens?
Clare: You've already chosen your side.
Heinrich: A decade here, three on the other side. You know what I know? There are no sides. We all go to the same hell.

All these years with you, I'm still out in the cold.

OHoward [to Emily]

Howard: Do you think it's possible to truly love someone without knowing who they really are?
OEmily: Maybe we don't love someone for who they are. Maybe we love them for who they'd rather be.

Howard: Were you really hospitalized for a drug overdose?
OEmily: No.
Howard: Someone did that to you, tried to kill you?
OEmily: Yes, none other than Alexander Pope, the man your other trusts, much to his detriment.

The people Alexander Pope's consorting with, what do they call it? The School. I've heard rumors about that place.

Heinrich

Alice: Mousy, I tried to believe your man, I really did. It would be better if I was only fooling myself and they didn't really exist.
Quayle: Who the hell are we talking about?

Howard: You do realize we're the same person, right? Essentially. I mean, the same flesh and blood, the same DNA.
OHoward: Yeah, believe me, I do.
Howard: Then why do you feel compelled to treat me so badly?

Howard: Oh, I forgot. I invited Anna for dinner. Is that unusual, too?
Emily: Yes.

Look, I don't know how bad it is between you and him. I can guess knowing him, a bit. But however bad it is, you're both very lucky.

Howard

You know, they say it's so great to meet yourself. Bullshit. It's like losing your virginity, you know? You wait your whole life for it and then 20 seconds later you're disappointed.

OHoward

OHoward: Howard, what are you doing in there? Packing? Are you packing?
Howard: You said it might be a week.
OHoward: You're going to be living in MY life. [Howard just stares back at him] Forget it.

Howard: You want me to inhabit your life?
OHoward: Honestly, that's the last thing in the fuckin' world I want, but I don't think we have a choice.
