The clip Blessed are the forgetful from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) with Mark Ruffalo, Kirsten Dunst
I guess, uh...
I guess I'll go out for... for some air,
if nobody minds.
It looks like you have everything under control here.
Yeah, that's, uh...
Do you like quotes, Howard?
What do you mean?
Oh, you know, like famous quotes?
I find reading them inspirational,
and in my reading, I've come across some I thought you might like too.
Oh, well, I... I'd love to hear some.
There's one that goes,
"Blessed are the forgetful, for they get the better even of their blunders. "
That's Nietzsche, right? Yeah.
And here I thought I could tell you something you didn't know. Oh, no.
It's... It's a good quote. I'm happy we both know it.
Yeah. Oh, and there's this other one I like.
It's by Pope Alexander, and it goes...
Alexander Pope? Oh, yeah.
It's just that I told myself not to say "Pope Alexander" and sound like a dope,
and then I go ahead and say it.
It's no big deal. You're such a sweetheart.
The quote goes, "How happy is the blameless vestal's lot?
"The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
"Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind.
Each prayer accepted and each wish resigned. "
I want to be a great big, huge elephant...
with a huge trunk like that.
I haven't heard that one. It's lovely.
I just thought it would be appropriate, maybe.
