The Sheltering Sky (1990)
John Malkovich: Port
Port Moresby : Well, terra firma.
Tunner : We're probably the first tourists they've had since the war.
Kit Moresby : Tunner, we're not tourists. We're travelers.
Tunner : Oh. What's the difference?
Port Moresby : A tourist is someone who thinks about going home the moment they arrive, Tunner.
Kit Moresby : Whereas a traveler might not come back at all.
Tunner : You mean *I'm* a tourist.
Kit Moresby : Yes, Tunner. And I'm half and half.
Kit Moresby : Other people's dreams are so dull.
Port Moresby : Kit has days when everything in the world is merely a sign for something else. A white Mercedes can't just simply be a white Mercedes. It must have a secret meaning about the whole of life. Everything is an omen. Nothing can just be what it is.
Port Moresby : You know, if Tunner didn't take such long siestas, I'd never be alone with you. I think he's in love with you.
Kit Moresby : Port, don't be silly.
Port Moresby : Sillier things have happened. The way he hangs around making inane conversation, the way he looks at you when he fingers his DDT can...
Kit Moresby : What else?
Port Moresby : Oh, the ferocity with which he counts your luggage.
Kit Moresby : Oh, he counts yours too.
Port Moresby : It's not the same.
Port Moresby : Could you be happy here?
Kit Moresby : Happy? Happy? How do you mean?
Port Moresby : I mean, could you like it here?
Kit Moresby : How do I know? God, I wish you wouldn't ask me questions like this! Really! I can't answer them. What do you want me to say? "Yes, I'll be happy in Africa"? I like Ain Krorfa so much, but I can't tell whether I want to stay for a month or I want to leave tomorrow.
Tunner : You couldn't leave tomorrow even if you wanted to. Can't get any information about how to get out of this place. No buses, not even a fruit truck. Nobody speaks English. Anybody for a nightcap?
