Whiplash (2014) Poster


Charlie Ian: Dustin


  • Uncle Frank : You got any friends, Andy?

    Andrew : No.

    Uncle Frank : Oh, why's that?

    Andrew : I don't know, I just never really saw the use.

    Uncle Frank : Well, who are you going to play with otherwise? Lennon and McCartney, they were school buddies, am I right?

    Andrew : Charlie Parker didn't know anybody 'til Jo Jones threw a cymbal at his head.

    Uncle Frank : So that's your idea of success, huh?

    Andrew : I think being the greatest musician of the 20th century is anybody's idea of success.

    Jim : Dying broke and drunk and full of heroin at the age of 34 is not exactly my idea of success.

    Andrew : I'd rather die drunk, broke at 34 and have people at a dinner table talk about me than live to be rich and sober at 90 and nobody remembered who I was.

    Uncle Frank : Ah, but your friends will remember you, that's the point.

    Andrew : None of us were friends with Charlie Parker. *That's* the point.

    Uncle Frank : Travis and Dustin? They have plenty of friends and plenty of purpose.

    Andrew : I'm sure they'll make great school board presidents someday.

    Dustin : Oh, that's what this is all about? You think you're better than us?

    Andrew : You catch on quick. Are you in Model UN?

    Travis : I got a reply for you, Andrew. You think Carleton football's a joke? Come play with us.

    Andrew : Four words you will never hear from the NFL.

    Aunt Emma : Who wants dessert?
