[who will get the last brownie?]
Anna Scott: Wait, what about me?
Max: Sorry, you think *you* deserve the brownie?
Anna Scott: Well a shot at it at least huh?
William: Well, you'll have to fight me for it, this is a very good brownie.
Anna Scott: I've been on a diet every day since I was nineteen, which basically means I've been hungry for a decade. I've had a series of not nice boyfriends, one of whom hit me. Ah, and every time I get my heart broken, the newspapers splash it about as though it's entertainment. And it's taken two rather painful operations to get me looking like this.
Anna Scott: Really. And, one day not long from now, my looks will go, they will discover I can't act and I will become some sad middle-aged woman who looks a bit like someone who was famous for a while.
Max: [long pause] Nah, nice try gorgeous, but you don't fool anyone.
William: Pathetic effort to hog the brownie.

Love this movie for several reasons. Everyone loves a good love story. Have you ever been seeing someone and found out they had a significant other? That’s got to be the worse. I am wondering what’s worst, if you were to start dating and getting to know a person, then you find out they have a significant other. Or, if you notice them from afar and know them platonically and would like to try and date them, then you find out they a significant other. Have you ever met the perfect someone and then found out you couldn’t be together? Do you have unbelievably bad timing with a certain someone in your life and it leaves you thinking like what if? I’m from the school of thought that if it’s meant to be, it will be. Mind you, this is coming from a guy who deleted a girl from his life because he thought he had found the woman he was going to marry, and didn’t want that clouding his goals and plans in life.
Then we have those people in our life we know we shouldn’t be talking to. People who may have a significant other and we just ignore it and proceed anyway. I’ve talked to people I know I shouldn’t have and I’ve stayed away sometimes because I was afraid of hurting or being hurt by a person. I think that there is something to be said for those people who know they will hurt someone and they continue to deal with them anyway. Like there are truly Praying Mantis females out there who know that they have a tendency to date a man, sleep with him, enjoy it for a little bit, but then they’ll want to move on. They are just never content and they know it. And women have men like this in their life too. Keep it real, every woman has her kryptonite.
