About a Boy quotes

Fiona: I can understand why you're angry, Marcus. But I don't feel the same as I did yesterday, if it's any help.
Marcus: What? It's all gone away? All that?
Fiona: No, but, for the moment, I feel better.
Marcus: The moment's no good for me. I can see you feel better at the moment. You just put the kettle on. What happens when you finish your tea? What happens when I go back to school? I can't be here to watch you all the time!

Will: All men are islands. And what's more, this is the time to be one. This is an island age. A hundred years ago, for example, you had to depend on other people. No one had TV or CDs or DVDs or home espresso makers. As a matter of fact they didn't have anything cool. Whereas now you can make yourself a little island paradise. With the right supplies, and more importantly the right attitude, you can become sun-drenched, tropical, a magnet for young Swedish tourists.

Will: How do I look?
Marcus: Good. How do I look?
Will: Just... just be as normal as you can, alright?

Will: (voiceover) She couldn't stay at my place, and she didn't have a DVD, or satellite, or cable, so we were always stuck watching some cr** made for t.v. movie about a kid with leukemia. I had to end it.

Lindsey's Mum: 'Shake your as*'... is he Moroccan?

Will: (thinking) Every man is an island. I stand by that. But clearly some men are island CHAINS. Underneath, they are connected...
Marcus: (thinking) I used to think two was not enough. But now things are great; there are loads of people... I don't know what Will was so pi**** about. I don't think couples are the future. The way I see it now, we both got back-up now. It's like that thing Jon Bon Jovi said: 'No man is an island.'

Will: I find the key is to think of a day as units of time, each unit consisting of no more than thirty minutes. Full hours can be a little bit intimidating and most activities take about half an hour. Taking a bath: one unit, watching countdown: one unit, web-based research: two units, exercising: three units, having my hair carefully disheveled: four units. It's amazing how the day fills up, and I often wonder, to be absolutely honest, if I'd ever have time for a job; how do people cram them in?
