Sex and love... a mysterious thing.

Hugh Hefner

Do you really think all those years that I just sat here making lunches and vacuuming the carpets while you were working late? First, there was Robert. You remember Robert, Coral's brother. The first time we didn't even make it to the bedroom. He took me right there on the kitchen floor. Anybody walking by could have seen us. I wanted him so badly it didn't even matter. Then there was Paul. There is not a room in this house where Paul and I didn't make love. Certainly there was this room. Every inch of it really. There was the rug, up against the bar, on this sofa. Paul wanted to marry me, take me away. The kids too. I should've gone. I should've gone. So, if you want to feel sorry for someone, I would suggest feeling sorry for yourself.

I have been working here for ten years, and I know your handwriting from a mile away. Now, I don't know why you're sending yourself flowers from Dan, and I'm not asking. What I am asking for is a little bit of support.

Virginia: I don't need a lecture from you, Tessa. Especially about something that you are too young to understand.
Tessa: No, what you need mom is a shrink

Does a woman have to prove herself over and over and over again despite her experience and her accomplishments every time she wants to take a professional step forward?

Virginia

Being sex experts, it's not enough. Because when you've tried and tried and tried... and she still leaves you anyway, then you must look at yourself in the mirror and say the words that you've been too afraid to say... she does not love me.

Bill

I also know that carrying a hidden truth year after year, even for a lifetime, can become an intolerable burden. There's a certain kind of freedom in just giving up.

Bill

Virginia: Why is it that I should believe that you've changed?
Bill: Because for twelve years I've tried every way, every wrong and misguided way, to win your heart only to realize in these last very dark weeks you wanted something else. So you picked someone else, which means that part of us together is over for good.

Virginia: Dan, I've been so happy with you, but I don't see how you and the work go together. I don't ever see Bill accepting us.
Dan: It's not up to him. Bill can never make you happy. Not as a man to love. You know this. I know this. Virginia, I'm here because I love you, and I want you to be my wife, but I can't run after you trying to make you see things you already know. That I can't do.

You are the biggest fool that I know, but much to my heart's regret, I am the second biggest fool. Oh you cannot begin to understand the things that I have given up for you, the happiness that I have turned my back on for this family.

Libby

Bill, you're right about me, in many ways, how I love the work and the accomplishments, and the recognition, but where you're wrong is thinking that I want those things in place of happiness. I want to be happy in a life bigger than work. I can't be a whole person without that.

Virginia

You think that you're doing God's work? We are the ones that are saving people, giving them hope. It's people like you, weak and deluded, that keep people in the dark, afraid and lonely and suffering, so don't talk to me about God because, as far as I know, God doesn't want people to suffer, and yet because of you and the havoc that you have created, they will.

Masters of Sex Quotes

I think women often confuse love with physical attraction.

Women fake orgasms, maybe all of em. Although I haven't checked my clipboard lately
