Revolutionary Road (film) Quotes

Kate Winslet as April Wheeler

  • (Kate Winslet) "And you know what's so good about the truth? Everyone knows what it is, no matter how long they've lived without it."
  • (Kate Winslet) "I saw a whole other future. I can't stop seeing it."
  • (Kate Winslet) "So now I'm crazy because I don't love you, right? Is that the point?"
  • (Leonardo DiCaprio) "No. Wrong. You're not crazy, and you do love me. That's the point, April."
  • (Kate Winslet) "But I don't. I hate you. You were just some boy who made me laugh at a party once, and now I loathe the sight of you. In fact, if you come any closer, if you touch me or anything, I think I'll scream."
  • (Leonardo DiCaprio) "Frank: Oh, come on, stop this April."
  • (Leonardo DiCaprio) "f*** you, April. f*** you and all your hateful, god****;"
  • (Kate Winslet) "What are you going to do now? Are you going to hit me? To show me how much you love me?"
  • (Leonardo DiCaprio) "Don't worry, I can't be bothered. You're not worth the trouble it would take to hit you. You're not worth the powder it would take to blow you up. You are an empty, empty, hollow shell of a woman. I mean, what the hell are you doing in my house if you hate me so much? Why the hell are you married to me? What the hell are you doing carrying my child? I mean, why didn't you just get rid of it when you had the chance? Because listen to me, listen to me, I got news for you; I wish to God that you had."
  • (Kate Winslet) "I wanted IN. I just wanted us to live again. For years I thought we've shared this secret that we would be wonderful in the world. I don't know exactly how, but just the possibility kept me hoping. How pathetic is that? So stupid. To put all your hopes in a promise that was never made. Frank knows what he wants, he found his place, he's just fine. Married, two kids, it should be enough. It is for him. And he's right; we were never special or destined for anything at all."
  • (Kate Winslet) "I've never really been anywhere."
  • (Kate Winslet) "Look at us. We're just like everyone else. We've bought into the same, ridiculous delusion."
  • (Kate Winslet) "Won't you miss the city?"
  • (Leonardo DiCaprio) "Nothing's permanent, right?"
  • (Kate Winslet) "Right."
  • (Kate Winslet) "You're just some guy who made me laugh at a party once."
  • (Kate Winslet) "Just because you've got me safe in this little trap, you think you can bully me into feeling whatever you want me to feel."
  • (Kate Winslet) "Frank Wheeler, I think you're the most interesting person I've ever met."
  • (Kate Winslet) "Who made these rules anyway?"
  • (Kate Winslet) "Tell me the truth, Frank, remember that? We used to live by it. And you know what's so good about the truth? Everyone knows what it is however long they've lived without it. No one forgets the truth, Frank, they just get better at lying."
  • (Kate Winslet) "Don't you see? That's the whole idea. You'll be able to do what you should have been allowed to do seven years ago, you'll have the time. For the first time in your life, you'll have the time to find out what it is you actually want to do. And when you figure it out, you'll have the time and the freedom, to start doing."
  • (Leonardo DiCaprio) "This doesn't seem very realistic."
  • (Kate Winslet) "No, Frank. This is what's unrealistic. It's unrealistic for a man with a fine mind to go on working year after year at a job he can't stand. Coming home to a place he can't stand, to a wife who's equally unable to stand the same things. And you know what the worst part of it is? Our whole existence here is based on this great premise that we're special. They we're superior to the whole thing. But we're not. We're just like everyone else. We bought into the same, ridiculous delusion. That we have to resign from life and settle down the moment we have children. And we've been punishing each other for it."

  • (Michael Shannon) "Pop, couldn't you just sit there and eat your wonderful egg salad, and quit horning in?"
  • (Michael Shannon) "See, I've got a good many questions to ask and I'm willing to pay for the answers -- Now, I don't need to be told that a man who goes after his mother with a coffee table is putting himself in a weak position, legally; that's obvious."
  • (Mrs. Helen Givings) "John, come and have a look out this fabulous picture window."
  • (Michael Shannon) "If he hits her with it and kills her, that's a criminal case --"
  • (Mrs. Helen Givings) "Oh, look, the sun's coming out."
  • (Michael Shannon) "If all he does is break the coffee table and give her a certain amount of aggravation and she decides to go to court over it, that's a civil case --"

  • (Kate Winslet) "Why did you?"
  • (Leonardo DiCaprio) "Baby, I don't know -- I guess it's a simple case of wanting to be a man again after all that abortion business, some kind of neurotic, irrational need to prove something --"
  • (Kate Winslet) "No. I don't mean why did you have the girl, I mean, why did you tell me about it?"
  • (Leonardo DiCaprio) "What do you mean?"
  • (Kate Winslet) "I mean, what's the point? Is it supposed to make me jealous or something? Is it supposed to make me fall in love with you or back into bed with you or what? What would you like me to say Frank?"
  • (Leonardo DiCaprio) "Why don't you say what you feel, April?"
  • (Kate Winslet) "I don't feel anything."
  • (Leonardo DiCaprio) "In other words, you don't care what I do, or who I f*** or anything, hm?"
  • (Kate Winslet) "No, I guess that's right, I don't. f*** who you like."
  • (Leonardo DiCaprio) "Knowing what you've got, knowing what you need, knowing what you can do without; That's inventory control."
