You fucking cunt!
Nick Dunne
I’m the cunt you married. The only time you liked yourself was when you were trying to be someone this cunt might like. I’m not a quitter, I’m that cunt. I killed for you; who else can say that? You think you’d be happy with a nice Midwestern girl? No way, baby! I’m it.
Amy Dunne
Fuck. You’re delusional. I mean, you’re insane, why would you even want this? Yes, I loved you and then all we did was resent each other, try to control each other. We caused each other pain.
Nick Dunne
That’s marriage.
Amy Dunne

[first lines]
When I think of my wife, I always think of the back of her head. I picture cracking her lovely skull, unspooling her brain, trying to get answers. The primal questions of a marriage: What are you thinking? How are you feeling? What have we done to each other? What will we do?
Nick Dunne

I swear, you two are the most fucked up people I’ve ever known and I specialize in fucked up.
Tanner Bolt

What are you thinking? How are you feeling? What have we done to each other? What will we do?

What’s the laptop for?

[to Amy] You. Fucking. Bitch.
Nick Dunne

Everyone knows that ‘complicated’ is a code word for bitch.

Nick dunne took my pride and my dignity and my hope and my money. He took and took from me until I no longer existed. That’s murder.

Amazing fucking Amy is getting fucking married!
Amy Dunne

I’ve killed for you. Who else can say that?
Amy Dunne

[discussing what kind of wood item Nick is going to give to Amy for their 5th wedding anniversary, the “wood” anniversary] So what are you going to give her?
Margo Dunne
I don’t know, there’s nothing good for wood.
Nick Dunne
I know what you can do. You go home and fuck her brains out. Then you take your penis and smack her in the face with it, and you say, “There’s some wood, bitch!”
Margo Dunne

When two people love each other and they can’t make that work, that’s the real tragedy.

Whoever took her is bound to bring her back.
Margo Dunne

I will practice believing my husband loves me but I could be wrong.
Amy Dunne

Whatever they found, I think it’s safe to assume that it is very bad.

Go, you’re my voice of reason. I need you with me on this.
Nick Dunne
Of course I’m with you. I was with you before we were even born.

You didn’t need to.

The notice? Yes.
Amy Dunne
[rubs stomach]
I want a blood test! I want a paternity test!
Nick Dunne
I love tests.
Amy Dunne

Come home, Amy. I dare you.
Nick Dunne

You fucking cunt!
Nick Dunne
I’m the cunt you married! The only time you liked yourself was when you were trying to be someone this cunt might like. I’m not a quitter… I’m that cunt.
Amy Dunne

I’m so much happier now that I’m dead.
Amy Dunne

Your parents literally plagiarized your childhood?
Nick Dunne
No, they improved upon it, and then peddled it to the masses.
Amy Dunne

Want to test your marriage for weak spots? Add one recession, subtract two jobs. It’s surprisingly effective.
Amy Dunne

Boo hoo, I got laid off. Guess I’ll fuck a teenager.
Margo Dunne

You think you’d be happy with a nice Midwestern girl? No way, baby! I’m it.
Amy Dunne

Life. I don’t remember the point.
Nick Dunne

 

I will drill you as if you were doing a deposition. What to say, what not to say.
Tanner Bolt
A trained monkey?

A monkey who doesn’t get the lethal injection.
Tanner Bolt

Octopus and Scrabble?
