Brilliant Quotes from Joe Versus the Volcano

I watched Joes Versus the Volcano tonight. That movie has some profound religious overtones. Here’s three quotes that I thought were brilliant:

			  ANGELICA
	Did you ever think about
	killing yourself?

			  JOE
	What?  Why would you do that?

			  ANGELICA
	Why shouldn't I?

			  JOE
	Some things take care of
	themselves.  They're not your
	job. Maybe they're not even
	your business.

And ...


			  PATRICIA
	My father says almost the
	whole world's asleep.
	Everybody you know, everybody
	you see, everybody you talk
	to.  He says only a few people
	are awake.  And they live in a
	state of constant total
	amazement.

And ...

                          JOE
	Do you believe in God?

			  PATRICIA
	I believe in myself.

			  JOE
	What's that mean?

			  PATRICIA
	I have confidence in myself.

			  JOE
	I've done a lot of soul
	searching lately.  I've been
	asking myself some tough
	questions.  You know what I've
	found out?

			  PATRICIA
	What?

			  JOE
	I have no interest in myself.
	I think about myself, I get
	bored out of my mind.
