Veronika Voss (1982)
Hilmar Thate: Robert Krohn
Veronika Voss : I'm sure you felt bad.
Robert Krohn : Felt bad?
Veronika Voss : For not recognizing me. You didn't recognize me immediately, did you?
Robert Krohn : No, not at once.
Veronika Voss : You see! You can't fool me. Let me tell you, it was a joy for me that someone should take care of me without knowing I'm Veronika Voss, and how famous I am. I felt like a human being again. A human being!
Robert Krohn : Movies are not reality, of course.
Grete : You'd make a good pair - at the bar.
Robert Krohn : You mean she drinks?
Grete : All actors drink. And when they don't have any work, they hit the bottle. It's the law of nature. Her marriage is finished, too.
Robert Krohn : Is that true or just gossip?
Grete : Another law of nature, my boy: the gossip you hear about an actor is always true.
Robert Krohn : Thanks, Grete. If I can do you a favor anytime...
Grete : Not likely. Sports are always about the winners and I'm interested in the losers.
Robert Krohn : You wouldn't have Voss' address, by any chance? She's one of your losers.
Grete : I'm only interested in them as long as they're losing, not after they've lost.
Veronika Voss : When we go away, the furniture has to be covered, the shutters closed, and the electricity turned off.
Veronika Voss : It's like people who know they're dying and have to put everything in order first. Do you have idiosyncrasies like that?
Robert Krohn : No. I don't think so. And you?
Veronika Voss : Me? I like to seduce

Veronika Voss : defenseless men. You are a defenseless man, aren't you?
