… when we talk about literature, we do so in the present tense. When we speak of the dead, we are not so kind.

John Green, The Fault in our Stars

Statistically speaking, the average person tells three lies per ten minutes conversation. And granted, just regular people. We haven’t studied people planning to fire-bomb a black church. Could skew differently.

Cal Lightman, Lie To Me

This conversation is bound to turn up. Two guys in a street meet each other, and one of them says, “Hey, did you hear? Phil Davis died.” “Phil Davis? I just saw him yesterday.” “Yeah? … Didn’t help. He died anyway. Apparently, the simple act of you seeing him did not slow his cancer down. In fact, it may have made it more aggressive. You know, you could be the cause for Phil’s death. How do you live with yourself?”

George Carlin

In a book, all would have gone according to plan…. but life was so fucking untidy – what could you say for an existence where some of your most crucial conversations of your life took place when you needed to take a shit, or something? An existence where there weren’t even any chapters?

Stephen King, Misery

I’ve never had a conversation with a dead guy before. Forgive me if I don’t know the rules.

Peter Bishop, Fringe

Keep the conversation about things that would interest everybody. You know, nothing about memory or RAM.

Jen,The IT Crowd

It would be a shame to go out with a hot girl you can’t have a decent conversation with!

Justin Bieber

Why are you speaking in that weird voice? When did…? I don’t remember this conversation AT ALL.

Moss, The IT Crowd

It’s a fascinating story to adapt and essentially it’s a great opportunity to entertain and provoke conversation.

Ron Howard

But I’ve come to realize that God made some people out to be football players and that I’m not one of them.

Daniel Eugene Ruettiger, Rudy
