"Well, to begin with, nobody, and I mean nobody, can talk a junkie out of using. You can talk to 'em for years but sooner or later they're gonna get ahold of something. Maybe it's not dope. Maybe it's booze, maybe it's glue, maybe it's gasoline. Maybe it's a gunshot to the head. But something. Something to relieve the pressures of their everyday life, like having to tie their shoes."

"Alright everybody just act cool. Just like we got back from church."

"Most people don't know how they're gonna feel from one moment to the next. But a dope fiend has a pretty good idea. All you gotta do is look at the labels on the little bottles."

"Never look at the backside of a mirror, because you're looking at your inner self and you don't recognize it, because you've never seen it before."

i was going to make this all in one post as "movie crushes" but instead ill do a series... you'll notice a trend haha.
