"Most guys, we can recite all of The Godfather, we can recite all of Caddyshack, we can do those kinds of things. Women, by and large, can’t. You guys can say “you complete me”, and that’s about it. And I think it’s because in the history of movies, there have been fewer quotable lines spoken by actresses than actors."
Is this an indictment on male-centric Hollywood, or just Sorkin being a dick?
And really- “you complete me”? That’s the most iconic thing you can think of that a woman’s ever said on screen?
“After all, tomorrow is another day.”
“There’s no place like home.”
“Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.”
“Why don’t you come upstairs and see me sometime?”
“No more wire hangers!”
And for Christ’s sake, even, “I’ll have what she’s having.”
