The Ice Storm (film) Quotes

Jamey Sheridan as Jim Carver

  • (Jamey Sheridan) "Hey guys, I'm back."
  • (Elijah Wood) "You were gone?"

Kevin Kline as Ben Hood

  • (Kevin Kline) "The only big fight we've had in years is about whether to go back into couples therapy."
  • (Kevin Kline) "Well, that's the whole point of the holidays, Paul. So you and your sister can mope around the house, and your mother and I can wait on your hand and foot, while the two of you occasionally grunt for more food from behind the hair in your faces. Believe it or not, we actually enjoy it."

Tobey Maguire as Paul Hood

  • (Tobey Maguire) "To find yourself in the negative zone, as the Fantastic Four often do, means all every day assumptions are inverted. Even the invisible girl herself becomes visible and so she loses the last semblance of her power. It seems to me that everyone exists partially on a negative zone level, some people more than others. In your life, it's kind of like you dip in and out of it, a place where things don't quite work out the way they should. But for some people, the negative zone tempts them. And they end up going in, going in all the way."
  • (Train Conductor) "Good morning ladies and gentlemen. This train, originating from New York's Grand Central Station, is back in service. Next stop will be New Canaan, Connecticut. New Canaan, Connecticut next stop."
  • (Tobey Maguire) "In issue 141 of the Fantastic Four, published in November, 1973, Reed Richards had to use his anti-matter weapon on his own son, who Aannihilus has turn into the Human Atom Bomb. It was a typical predicament for the Fantastic Four, because they weren't like other superheroes. They were more like a family. And the more power they had, the more harm they could do to each other without even knowing it. That was the meaning of the Fantastic Four: that a family is like your own personal anti-matter. Your family is the void you emerge from, and the place you return to when you die. And that's the paradox; the closer you're drawn back in, the deeper into the void you go."
  • (Tobey Maguire) "When you think about it, it's not easy to keep from just wandering out of life. It's like someone's always leaving the door open to the next world, and if you aren't paying attention you could just walk through it, and then you've died. That's why in your dreams it's like you're standing in that doorway -- and the dying people and the newborn people pass by you -- and brush up against you as they come in and out of the world during the night. You get spun around, and in the morning -- it takes a while to find your way back into the world."
  • (Tobey Maguire) "I've been thinking, Francis. You are one drug-addled, elitist freak. And when the revolution comes I do not want to be lined up with you and shot because you're f***ing ripe for political reeducation. You know, like in the fields."
  • (David Krumholtz) "Let me enlighten you about something here. You and I exist on opposite sides of a great existential divide, that being your pathetic virginity on the one hand and my astonishing number of sexual conquests on the other. You're simply jealous."
  • (Tobey Maguire) "Libbets? Hey, Dostoyevsky- I'm also really a fan. And, uh, what you were saying, you know- have you ever read The Idiot?"
  • (Katie Holmes) "The ldiot ?"
  • (Tobey Maguire) "If you liked Notes From Underground, you'll love The ldiot."
  • (Katie Holmes) "Great. Thanks for the tip."
  • (Tobey Maguire) "The ldiot."

Elijah Wood as Mikey Carver

  • (Elijah Wood) "Because of molecules we are connected to the outside world from our bodies. Like when you smell things, because when you smell a smell it's not really a smell, it's a part of the object that has come off of it, molecules. So when you smell something bad, it's like in a way you're eating it. This is why you should not really smell things, in the same way that you don't eat everything in the world around you because as a smell, it gets inside of you. So the next time you go into the bathroom after someone else has been there, remember what kinds of molecules you are in fact eating."
  • (Elijah Wood) "I don't ever want to see you."
  • (Christina Ricci) "Then why did you come after me?"

  • (Elijah Wood) "I'm not good at Math, just good at Geometry. It's like you now when they say you have 2 squared, you think it mean 2 times 2 equals 4, but really they really mean a square. Its really space, its not numbers, its space. And it's perfect space. But only in your head, because you can't draw a perfect square in the material world. But in your mind, you can have a perfect space. You know?"
  • (Adam Hann-Byrd) "Yeah, but I just need some help with my homework --"

  • (Sigourney Weaver) "Do you know what you brothers been up to?"
  • (Elijah Wood) "I -- I dunno."
