An artificial man, who was incompletely constructed and has scissors for hands, leads a solitary life.

I am not complete.
– Edward

Sweetheart, you can’t buy the necessities of life with cookies.
– Bill

Soup’s on!
– Bill
I thought this was shish kabob.
– Edward

Hold me.
– Kim
I can’t.
– Edward

You could have gone up there. You could still go.
– Granddaughter
No, sweetheart. I’m an old woman now. I would rather he remember me the way I was.
– Kim
How do you know he’s still alive?
– Granddaughter
I don’t know, not for sure. But I believe he is. You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren’t up there now… I don’t think it would be snowing. Sometimes, you can still catch me dancing in it.
– Kim

You’re here… They didn’t hurt you, did they?
– Kim
Were you scared? I tried to make Jim go back, but, you can’t make Jim do anything. Thank you for not telling them that we…
– Kim
You’re welcome.
– Edward
It must have been awful when they told you whose house it was.
– Kim
I knew it was Jim’s house.
– Edward
You… you did?
– Kim
Yes.
– Edward
…Well, then why’d you do it?
– Kim
Because you asked me to.
– Edward

Will he be OK, Doc?
– Officer Allen
The years spent in isolation have not equipped him with the tools necessary to judge right from wrong. He’s had no context. He’s been completely without guidance. Furthermore, his work – the garden sculptures, hairstyles and so forth – indicate that he’s a highly imaginative… uh… character. It seems clear that his awareness of what we call reality is radically underdeveloped.
– Psychologist
But will he be all right out there?
– Officer Allen
Oh yeah, he’ll be fine.
– Psychologist

I’m not finished.
– Edward

Avon calling.
– Peg Boggs
Weren’t you just here?
– Helen
No, not since last season. Today I’ve come to show you our exquisite new line in softer colours in shadows, blushes and lipstick. Everything you need to accent and highlight your changing look.
– Peg Boggs

The light concealing cream goes on first. Then you blend, and blend, and blend. Blending is the secret.
– Peg Boggs

Kevin, you wanna play scissors, paper, stone again?
– Edward
No!
– Kevin
Why not?
– Edward
‘Cause it’s boring. I always win!
– Kevin

Why can’t you do it?
– Kim
Because my father keeps the damn room locked. We need Edward to get us in.
– Jim
Well can’t you just take the key when he’s sleeping or something?
– Kim
You don’t understand. The only thing that guy hangs onto tighter is his dick.
– Jim

Well I’ll be darned.
– Bill

I’d give my left nut to see that again.
– Jim

Good morning Joyce. Avon calling.
– Peg Boggs
Well Peg, have you gone blind? Can’t you see there’s a vehicle in my driveway?
– Joyce
