Quotes-Why We Broke Up

Here are some of my favourite quotes from Why We Broke Up By Daniel Handler:

1. “Every last souvenir of the love we had, the prizes and the debris of this relationship, like the glitter in the gutter when he parade has passed, all the everything and whatnot kicked to the curb.”

2‘I’m telling you why we broke up, Ed. I’m writing it in this letter, the whole truth of why it happened. And the truth is that I goddamn loved you so much.”

3.“I gave you an adventure, Ed, right in front of you but you never saw it until I showed you, and that’s why we broke up.”

4.“…you looked at me like you didn’t know your lines”

5.“It was the pen just giving up midway and scratching invisible ink scars on the paper or suiciding to leak on my hand, and trying to remember if I’d touched my face recently and am I a ballpoint coal miner on my cheeks and chin.”

6.“You think everything’s sexual tension,” I said to Lauren, “just because you were raised by Mr. and Mrs. Super-Christian. We Jews know that underlying tensions are always due to low blood sugar.” “Yeah, well, you killed my Savior” Lauren said, and Jordan saluted good-bye. “Don’t let it happen again.

7.“Lauren pretended to faint dead away. “Al!” she said, in her mother’s voice. “That is a violation of the student council honor code! It will be a very long time before I trust you ever, ever—OK, I trust you again.”

8.“The person besides Lauren who is allowed into Lauren’s purse is whoever finds her dead in a ditch and is looking for identification.”

9.“We knew it,” said the girl who was with her. “It always happen, getting too close when someone’s never seen it before. It’s like the fire attracts the virgins, ha-ha.” They were both looking slyly at me. I wanted a beer. “Ha-ha,” I said. “It’s true my hymen is extremely flammable.”

10.“All you’ll have to do is popcorn and put some pants on.” Al told me once late at night that usually when we’re talking on the phone, he’s pacing around his room in his boxers. We made a deal one morning early when he couldn’t pay attention that I’d never tell anyone if I could tease him mercilessly about it forever.”

11“It’s kind of personal.” He turned off the water and watched me in the doorway with the towel on his shoulder. “OK.” “I mean, not like my period or my parents beating me, but personal.” “Yeah, its rough when your parents beat you and you have your period.”

12.“Don’t say that. You said quick.” “Well, it would be.” “Quick is an opinion.” “No, Min.” Al finished the beer but kept looking at it. “Quick is an adjective.”

13. “I’d slap him, but it’s still delicate between us.”
