You cured me of you.

Emma: I can't believe I'm actually here with you.
Dexter: Why? 
Emma: Remember at University, before we'd spoken, 
I had a crush on you.
 Ridiculous, I know. But, when we almost um...did it, that night, 
I couldn't believe that...that poems aren't everything.
 What have you got to say to that?
Dexter: Well, I already knew.
Emma: What do you mean you knew?
Dexter: Well, I sort of guessed. All those uh...epic letters and compilation tapes. 
So go on then, what happened?
Emma: I got to know you. You cured me of you.
Dexter: You know, I still like to read those poems. 
What rhymes with Dexter?
Emma: Prick. It's a half rhyme.

What is the difference between...

Customer: What is the difference between...
Emma: A tortilla is either corn or wheat, but a corn tortilla folded and filled is a taco, where as a filled wheat tortilla is a boretto. A deep fried boretto is a chimichanga. Toasted tortilla, it's a tostada, roll it, it's an enchilada.
Customer: Is there any chance you could repeat that?

Because it's the halves that halve you in half

I thought I understood it, that I could grasp it, but I didn't, not really. 
Only the smudgeness of it; the pink-slippered, all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it. I didn't realize it would sometimes be more than whole, that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea. 
Because it's the halves that halve you in half.
 I didn't know, don't know, about the in-between bits; 
the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.

I wanted to be loved because I was great...

I wanted to be loved because I was great; A big man. I'm nothing. Look at the glory around us; trees, birds. I lived in shame. I dishonored it all, and didn't notice the glory. I'm a foolish man.

My name is Patrick Bateman

I live in the American Gardens Building on W. 81st Street on the 11th floor. My name is Patrick Bateman. I'm 27 years old. 
I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. 
Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.
