Running with Scissors (2006) Poster

Jill Clayburgh: Agnes Finch



  • Dr. Finch : Everyone! Come quickly! Wake up! Wake up! A miracle! A miracle! A miracle has occured!

    Agnes Finch : What're you looking at?

    Natalie : Dad's morning shit.

    Dr. Finch : See? See how the duplicoil is breaking out of the surface of the water? Holy Father.

    Agnes Finch : Doctor, let me draw you a nice bath.

    Dr. Finch : Agnes, go get a shoehorn. A shoehorn, Agnes.

    Hope : But what does it mean, Dad?

    Dr. Finch : It means our financial situation is turning around. It means things are looking upward. Literally, the shit is pointing out of the pot! Towards Heaven, to God. My turd is a direct communication from the Holy Father.

    [Augusten and Natalie try to hide their laughter] 

    Dr. Finch : No, no, no, no, children. No. Laugh. Laugh! God is... He is the funniest man in the universe. Agnes, I want you to carefully remove this, take it outside, and let it dry in the sun. We're starting a shrine, Agnes. A shrine. Hope, let's prepare.

  • Agnes Finch : Natalie is not coming. I told her I'd deal with it.

    Augusten Burroughs : Don't try to stop me, Agnes. I'm going. I'm going to miss you.

    Agnes Finch : I'll miss you, too. You're a... the best son a mom could ever want. You need to know that.

    [She hands him a small box filled with money] 

    Augusten Burroughs : Oh, my God. Agnes, there's - there's a lot of money here.

    Agnes Finch : A penny here, a dime there. It adds up. The Doctor doesn't know I have it, of course. No one does. You know, this morning, the IRS came again. And I almost gave it to them. Then I though, "No. For once in my life, I'm going to invest wisely." When you write a book, you send me a copy. Goodbye, my sweet boy.

    Augusten Burroughs : Agnes. What're you gonna do now?

    Agnes Finch : I don't know. Maybe I'll take down the Christmas tree.

  • Augusten Burroughs : Agnes, what are you going to do now?

    Agnes Finch : Maybe I'll take down the Christmas tree.
