Despite popular belief, guys don't mentally undress every woman they meet; they simply thread them up and run them through the imaginary film projector in their heads to see what comes of it."  (Neil LaBute, from "Look at Her" in Seconds of Pleasure)

"I'm not small, I'm space-efficient."  (Rachael Leigh Cook)
