Ronny: Everything seems like nothing to me now, I guess I don't want you in my bed. I don't care if I burn in hell; I don't care if you burn in hell. The past and the future is a joke to me now. I see that they are nothin, I see they ain't here. The only thing that's here is you and me.
Loretta: I'm so cold. I wanna go home, I'm freezing to death!
Ronny: No! Come upstairs...I don't care why you come. No, that's not what I mean. Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn't know this either, but love don't make things nice, it ruins everything! It breaks your heart, it makes things a mess. We aren't here to make things perfect. Snowflakes are perfect, stars are perfect. Not us, not us. We are here to ruin ourselves and...and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and...and die! I mean the storybooks are bullshit! Now I want you to come upstairs and...and GET in my bed. Come on, come on, come on.
