Ty: Ma, I hate to break it to you, but I don't think he's after your money.
Marisa: I can't believe you just said that!

Marisa: Can you keep a secret?
Caroline: Of course.
Marisa: Good. So can I.

Jerry Siegel: Who the hell is she?
Christopher: I'll tell you who she isn't. She isn't like anyone I've ever met before. And she isn't a phony. I'll make you a deal, wonder man. You want me at the benefit tomorrow night? Then get her to go, and I swear to God, I'll shake any part of Maddox's body you want me to. Deal?
Jerry Siegel: Deal. All right. Sure. Okay.

Lionel: What we do, Miss Ventura, does not define who we are.

Lionel: And although we serve them, we are not their servants.

Ty: Are you a Republican?
Christopher:  Yes, why?
Ty:  Richard Nixon was a Republican.
Jerry Siegel:  So?
Ty:  He lied...

Jerry Siegel
: What press are you affiliated with?
Ty: I'm 10.
Jerry Siegel: What about your parents, are they Democrat or Republican?
Ty: What's the difference these days?
Christopher: I love this kid.
Jerry Siegel: What's not to love.

Marisa: Look, you have to listen to me, I know you're used to getting your way.
Christopher: Yeah, until I met you.
Marisa: There's millions of women who are just dying for you to look their way.
Christopher: [Laughing] Yeah? Then why are you making me work so hard?

Christopher: You're beautiful.
Marisa: So are you.
Christopher: Thank you for being here.
Marisa: I only came to tell you that this, you and me, can't go anywhere beyond this evening. It just can't.
Christopher: Well, then, you should've worn a different dress.

Marisa: Marisa Ventura. Housekeeping.
Christopher: Chris Marshall. Candidate for Senate. I'd appreciate your vote.
Marisa: We'll see.

[Running after Marisa when she leaves a benefit early]
Christopher: Caroline. Caroline. Caroline. Do you have somewhere else you have to be?
Marisa: No, I just have to leave.
Christopher: Well, I don't think you're leaving. I think you're running. And what I can't figure out is, are you running towards something you want? Or are you running away from something you're afraid to want?
Marisa: Look, I've made so many mistakes already. I just don't want to make it worse.
Christopher: You won't. I promise.
Marisa: There's something you don't know, ok? Oh, God. How do I tell you this? Look, the first time that you saw me I was...
Christopher: You were mesmerizing.

It is not what you got... it is who you know, and what they got...

What we do does not define who we are... what defines us is how well we rise after falling.

I'll make like a baby, and head out first!

Christopher: Do I look as stupid as you think I am?
Jerry Siegel: No. No, I mean, you're not stupid. What, what are you talking about?

Reporter: Mr. Marshall, what's your relationship with the Latin community?
Jerry Siegel: Excellent! He speaks Latin... Spanish.

Marisa: The first time you saw me I was cleaning your bathroom floor!
Chris: You expect me to introduce myself while I'm taking a leak?
