  • Strickland : [to Elisa]  What'd you say to me?

    Elisa : [in sign language]  F - U - C - K

    Strickland : What is she saying?

    Elisa : Y - O - U

    Zelda : Uh, I, I didn't catch it.

    Strickland : [kicks the desk; pointing at Elisa]  WHAT IS SHE SAYING?

    Zelda : She, she is sayin' "Thank you"!

  • Elisa : [in sign language]  If we do nothing, neither are we.

  • Giles : Oh! God, to be young and beautiful. If I could go back

    [Elisa nods] 

    Giles : to when I was 18 - I didn't know anything about anything - I'd give myself a bit of advice.

    Elisa : [in sign language]  What would you say?

    Giles : I would say: Take better care of your teeth and fuck, a lot more.

    [Elisa smiles and gently nudges him] 

    Giles : Oh no, no, that's very good advice.

  • Giles : We can do nothing! I'm sorry! But this, this, this is just - Oh God, it's not even human. God!

    [Elisa follows Giles into the hallway and hits the wall to get his attention] 

    Giles : What?

    Elisa : [in sign language]  If we / do nothing / neither are we.

  • Giles : [shows Elisa his artwork]  Ta-dah. That's not bad, is it?

    [chuckles; Elisa shakes her head] 

    Giles : For being shit!


    Elisa : [in sign language]  It's not shit.

    Giles : Ah - listen: You eat, you go to bed, you rest...

    [grabs jacket] 

    Giles : And when I - get paid...

    [sighs and does a twirl; pause] 

    Giles : We get pie.

    Elisa : [in sign language]  Nothing for me.

    Giles : No, we don't get pie. I get pie! You get whatever you want!


    Giles : Hahhh.

    [gently touches her face] 

    Giles : Wish me luck.

    Elisa : [in sign language]  Good luck.

    [Alice Faye singing on TV: "Then I have only this to say..."; Giles looks back and smiles]
