Gena Rowlands and Seymour Cassell

Minnie: "You know, I think that movies are a conspiracy... because they set you up... They set you up from the time you're a little kid.  They set you up to believe in everything... in ideals and strengh and good guys and romance - and, of course, love... So... you go out, you start looking.  Doesn't happen, you keep looking.  You get a job... and you spend a lot of time fixing up things - your apartment and jazz.  And you learn how to be feminine - you know, quotes: "feminine"?  You learn how to cook... But there's no Charles Boyer in my life... I never even met a Charles Boyer.  I never met Clark Gable.  I never met Humphrey Bogart... I mean, they don't exist - that's the truth.  But the movies set you up and no matter how bright you are, you believe it." 
John Cassavetes, 1971
