Lester Burnham from 1999 movie. Quotes My name is Lester Burnham. This is my neighborhood, this is my street, this is my lifeThis is my neighborhood, this is my street, this is my life. I have lost something. I'm not exactly sure what it is, but I know I didn't always feel this sedated. But you know what? It's never too late to get it back. CAROLYN: Whose car is that out front? LESTER: Mine. 1970 Pontiac Firebird, the car I've always wanted, and now I have it1970 Pontiac Firebird, the car I've always wanted, and now I have it. I rule! CAROLYN: Where's the Camry? LESTER: I traded it in. CAROLYN: Shouldn't you have consulted me first? LESTER: Hm, let me think. No. You never drove it. Have you done something different? You look great. CAROLYN: Where's Jane? LESTER: Jane not home. We have the whole house to ourselves. Christ, Carolyn. When did you become so joyless? CAROLYN: Joyless? I am not joyless. There happens to be a lot about me that you don't know, Mr. Smarty Man. There's plenty of joy in my life. LESTER: Whatever happened to that girl who used to fake seizures at frat parties when she got bored? Who used to run up to the roof of our first apartment building to flash the traffic helicopters? Have you totally forgotten about her? Because I haven't. CAROLYN: Lester, you're going to spill beer on the couch. LESTER: So what? It's just a couch. CAROLYN: This is a $4,000 sofa, upholstered in Italian silk. This is not just a couch. LESTER: It's just a couch! This isn't life! This is just stuffIt's just a couch! This isn't life! This is just stuff, and it's become more important to you than living. Well, honey, that's just nuts. I'm only trying to help youI'm only trying to help you! LESTER: I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn't a second at all... I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life. You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry. You will someday.
