Carnal Knowledge Quotes

Jack Nicholson as Jonathan

  • (Jack Nicholson) "At one time, it was great what we had -- the kidding around. It can't have a natural time span. Affairs can't dissolve in a good way. There's always got to be poison. I don't see why, I really don't see why."
  • (Jack Nicholson) "Sandy, do you wanna get laid?"
  • (Art Garfunkel) "Please."
  • (Jack Nicholson) "Is this an ultimatum? Answer me, you ball-busting, castrating, son of a c*** bitch. Is this an ultimatum or not?"
  • (Jack Nicholson) "If you had a choice --"
  • (Art Garfunkel) "Yeah?"
  • (Jack Nicholson) "Would you rather love a girl, or have her love you?"
  • (Art Garfunkel) "I want it mutual."
  • (Jack Nicholson) "I mean if you couldn't have it mutual."
  • (Art Garfunkel) "You mean would I rather be the one who loves, or is loved?"
  • (Jack Nicholson) "Yeah."
  • (Art Garfunkel) "It's not that easy a question. But, I think I'd rather be in love."
  • (Jack Nicholson) "Me too."
  • (Jack Nicholson) "I'm not kind."
  • (Rita Moreno) "I don't mean "weak" kind the way so many men are. I mean the kindness that comes from enormous strength, from an inner power so strong that every act, no matter what, is more proof of that power. That's what all women resent. That's why they try to cut you down, because your knowledge of yourself and them is so right, so true, that it exposes the lies by which they, every scheming one of them, live by. It takes a true woman to understand that the purest form of love is of a man who denies himself to her, of a man who inspires worship, because he has no need for any woman. Because he has himself, and who is better, more beautiful, more powerful, more perfect -- you're getting hard -- more strong, more masculine, more extraordinary, more -- bust. It's rising, it's rising -- more virile, domineering. More irresistible. It's up, it's in the air --"
  • (Jack Nicholson) "Talk about the pot and the kettle. When I caught wind of your checkered past, I felt like a celibate."
  • (Ann-Margret) "You made me tell you."

  • (Ann-Margret) "It got you hot."
  • (Jack Nicholson) "Something has to."
  • (Jack Nicholson) "Very slick. Very clever. But it's not going to work, Bobbie."
  • (Jack Nicholson) "Alright, where the f*** is my shoehorn? This place is a mess. There's not any food in the house, half the time you look like you fell out of bed. You spend more time in bed than any other human being past the age of 6 months than I ever heard of."
  • (Jack Nicholson) "Why don't you leave me? -- For God's sake, I'd almost marry you if you'd leave me."
  • (Jack Nicholson) "What are you crying for? It wasn't a Lassie story."
  • (Jack Nicholson) "You want a job? I got a job for you. Fix up this pigsty. You get a pretty Goddammed good salary for testing out this bed all day. You want an extra fifty dollars a week, try vacuuming. You want an extra hundred, make this Goddammed bed. Try opening some Goddammed windows. That's why you can't stand up in here, the Goddammed place smells like a coffin."
