Top 20 quotes from Have Dreams, Will Travel (2007)

Quotes from movie Have Dreams, Will Travel (2007)
 
Cassie:
The real question is why you're putting it in such a negative context. Yes, I am withdrawing somewhat, but is that a sin?
Ben:
Great. Take a major problem, even though you won't tell me what it is, and turn it into one of your brainy discussions.
Cassie:
Oh. Is that your opinion? You did finish seventh grade, so I want to give it the way it deserves.
Ben:
And you graduated from Harvard, right?
Cassie:
[sitting up a little straighter and looking angry]
Okay, cowboy. Wanna play?
Ben:
[also sitting up straighter]
I'm not exactly sure what we're playing here, but yeah, let's go.
Cassie:
It's all about introspection. And concepts which you are no doubt unable to digest at this point in your narrow-minded and sheltered pathetic life!
[turns away and folds her arms]

Ben:
[pause]
Go screw yourself.
[turns off light]

Cassie:
[after small pause]
Ben?
Ben:
What?
Cassie:
[leaning in a little closer]
Are you mad at me?
Ben:
Yeah.
Cassie:
Well, I don't like it.
Ben:
Then start talking to me like a real person.
Cassie:
[remorsefully]
I told you I was flawed when we met.
Ben:
Cass, everybody's flawed. Just in different ways.
Cassie:
[cuddles up next to Ben]
I'm so sorry.
Ben:
[kisses the top of her head]
It's okay.
 
Cassie:
See, a real plan is more than just some pipe dream.
Ben:
Pipe dream?
Cassie:
A pipe dream is an unrealistic fantasy that deludes oneself into thinking that it's an actual plan. It's a very popular expression. I'm surprised you've never heard of it before.
Ben:
I didn't say I'd never heard it.
Cassie:
Anyway, a real plan is an actual goal that you believe in enough to create a set of circumstances. Which leads you to, and into, a plan. Comprende?
Ben:
Where do you come up with this stuff? I mean, what part of your brain works so hard it makes you think and talk like that?
Cassie:
My father was a professor with a very wide vocabulary and lots of unique ideas. When he wasn't teaching his students, he taught me.
Ben:
So what does your mom do?
Cassie:
[after a pause]
She never did anything.
[blinks, then turns and walks away from him]

Ben:
[picks up their bags and follows her, regretting he said anything]
You know, I think most of what you say is true.
[Cassie turns and tilts her head at him]

Ben:
Some I just don't understand. But I also think you like to screw with people's heads.
Cassie:
I may be wrong sometimes. But I won't ever screw with your head. Ever.
Ben:
Me too. Ever.
[Cassie smiles and nods]
 
Henderson:
Do you, Ben...
Cassie:
Benjamin Reynolds.
Henderson:
Benjamin Reynolds, take this young woman...
Cassie:
Cassie Kennington.
Henderson:
[Henderson wipes eyes, takes off hat]
Do both of you promise to treat each other with dignity and love until one or the other drops dead?
Cassie:
I do.
[looks at Ben]

Ben:
I do.
Henderson:
[Henderson, Cassie, and Ben put their hands in the center and "break"]
Well, looks like you're both married now.
[grins]

Ben:
[looks at Cassie, laughs nervously and grins]
That's great.
[Henderson nods]

Cassie:
[whispers]
Oh, the ring.
[Ben gets a straightened paper clip and wraps it around her finger, then pats her hand]

Henderson:
Congratulations to you both.
[gets up]

Cassie:
Well, I feel good about this whole thing.
[to Henderson]

Cassie:
How about you?
Henderson:
[grins again]
Yeah. I feel good about it.
[Cassie looks at Ben and their eyes meet]

Ben:
[nervously]
Uh, well, I don't have a lot to compare it to, but, uh, yeah...
[gulps]

Ben:
I feel good.
Henderson:
Oh and if you wanna kiss the bride, you can do that now, 'cause I forgot to say it.
 
Cassie:
Sure is nice being up bright and early to take in the new day.
Ben:
Yeah. That's what they say. Where are we anyways?
Cassie:
Life In Hell, Kentucky. By the way, did I ever thank you? Because it would be way too comfortable for me and my banged up body to be in a nice, warm bus taking us directly where we need to be going.
Ben:
We're married, you know. That's supposed to count for something.
Cassie:
He's a nice guy. So we talked. It wasn't like I kissed him or anything, jeez.
Ben:
Yeah, whatever.
[gets up, picks up a rock]

Cassie:
[after a pause]
Jealousy. It's a good quality to have in a husband. Unless, of course, he gets overly possessive.
Ben:
Okay, why don't you just rest your tired ass and let me make the calls for a little while.
Cassie:
Tired ass? Where's that sweet, innocent youth I used to know?
Ben:
Don't you worry about it, he's in here somewhere.
Cassie:
Well, he better be.
[Ben throws rock]
 
Ben:
[after Cassie wakes up from a particularly detailed nightmare]
You took it as long as you could, Cass. You can't blame yourself for that.
[puts his hand on her cheek]

Cassie:
There are good parts to them too.
[pauses, then looks down, tears sparkling in her eyes]

Ben:
[after a brief pause]
Cass?
Cassie:
[looks up]
Yeah?
Ben:
Let's go.
Cassie:
[whispering]
Ben, I'm sick. When you kill two people it makes you sick.
Ben:
[sniffs]
Look, I'm going to take you out of here, and... well, worry about everything later, okay?
Cassie:
[nods]
Okay.
[pause, then Cassie leans her head against Ben's hand, where Ben strokes her cheek gently with his thumb]
 
Cassie:
[to her aunt and uncle, about needing a double mattress]
Y'know with my legs stiffening up sometimes and the two of us being married and all.
Cassie's Uncle:
You're married?
Cassie's Aunt:
That must be what kids call going steady these days.
Ben:
No, we're actually married.
[Cassie smiles and displays her "ring"]

Cassie's Aunt:
[looking a little confused]
Was it a large wedding?
Cassie:
Oh, about twenty or thirty head. Mostly hogs and some sows.
Ben:
Oh, and pigs.
Cassie:
Yes, there were several pigs in attendence as well.
Cassie's Aunt:
[still looking confused]
Well, I guess we'll get you a double mattress then.
 
Ben:
[wakes up and sees Cassie by his bed]
Jesus!
Cassie:
You're not screwing with me, are you?
Ben:
What?
Cassie:
You seem to like me, which is fine because I like you too. But if you're acting like you do because my parents are dead and you feel sorry for me, then that's just bullshit.
[Ben stares at Cassie for a few moments]

Cassie:
[waving her hand in front of his face]
Hello?
Ben:
No, I'm not screwing with you. I like you too.
 
Ben:
[in the hospital visiting Cassie]

[gently]

Ben:
Hey.
Cassie:
Hey.
Ben:
Cass?
Cassie:
Yeah?
Ben:
It's time to go.
Cassie:
[pause, then looks at him with dark circles under her eyes]
Is that the plan?
Ben:
Yeah. That's the plan.
Cassie:
What if I'm really, really tired?
[pause, then she kisses his cheek and lays against him and goes to sleep]
 
Cassie:
That was one goddamn doozy of an accident, that's for sure.
[Ben turns suddenly away]

Cassie:
What?
[she smiles]

Cassie:
You never heard anyone cuss before?
Ben:
Well yeah, but... not from a girl.
Cassie:
Well, I'm very flawed. Extremely flawed, if you want to know the truth.
 
Ben:
Who knows anything when it comes down to it?
[sighs embracing Cassie]

Ben:
I don't.. I pretend I do sometimes but.. I don't. But I do know this..
Ben:
When your life becomes what you dream it'll be
[dramatic pause in narration]

Ben:
It's amazing..
 
[from trailer]

[narrating]

Ben:
[on Cassie's breakdown]
I guess I hoped that when she woke up, things would be okay. But I was wrong. She had gone over this edge, and no one knew how to get her back. I didn't know what to do or where to go.
 
[first lines]

Ben:
[narrating]
I'm just a kid, there's a lot I don't know. But one thing I do know, is that my folks should never have married. And they definitely should never had a kid.
 
Ben:
[after Cassie wakes up from a nightmare]
You were screaming.
Cassie:
[Cassie gets a drink of water and lays back down, still panting]
It's late. You should get back to bed.
 
Waitress:
So, what can I get you little chickens this morning? Some silver dollar pancakes? Or some piggies in a blanket, I bet?
Ben:
Two coffees, both black.
 
Cassie:
How much do we owe you? For room and board and water.
Henderson:
Hmm... well, waking up to the smell of pig shit ought to do it.
 
Ben:
When I look back, I think it's my fault. Not that I couldn't figure out why she was sad, but not seeing how incredibly sad she really was.
 
Cassie:
How much did you get?
Ben:
$25.
Cassie:
Well, at least that's $25 more than we had before.
Ben:
That's true.
 
Cassie:
[smiling after she sees Ben watching her take off her jacket]
Don't worry. I'm not ready to have sex yet.
 
Truck Driver:
[sees Ben pouring hot liquid]
Hot chocolate?
Ben:
Hot coffee.
 
Ben:
[to Cassie]

[whispering]

Ben:
Talk to me. Please.
