Finding Forrester (2000)
Forrester: You're the man now, dog!
Jamal Wallace: I came back to see, if you could help me out with my writing. William Forrester: How about 5,000 words on why you'll stay the fuck out of my home?
William Forrester: In some cultures it's good luck to be wearing something inside-out. Jamal Wallace: And you believe that? William Forrester: No, but it's like praying: what do you risk?
Jamal: Don't forget to write.
William Forrester: You write the first draft with your heart, and the second draft with your head.
Jamal Wallace: "The rest of those who have gone before us cannot steady the unrest of those to follow." You wrote that in your book.
William Forrester: Bolt the door, if you're coming in.
Jamal Wallace: Women will sleep with you if you write a book? William Forrester: Women will sleep with you if you write a bad book.
William Forrester: What you write in this apartment stays in this apartment.
William Forrester: The key to a woman's heart is an unexpected gift at an unexpected time.
