Movie Quote(s):
  • Sydney Wells: I see... Dr. Paul Faulkner: ...what? Dead people?
  • Alicia Millstone: I know you're scared. Don't be. 'Cause the world really is beautiful.
  • Sydney Wells: There have been cases of transplant recipients who've actually shown characteristics of the donor. Dr. Paul Faulkner: Right, that's cellular memory. Sydney Wells: Yeah. There was a liver transplantation in Kentucky last year. She almost immediately felt the urge to take up smoking and she hadn't her entire life. Dr. Paul Faulkner: The donor was a chain smoker? Sydney Wells: Down to the same brand. And a few years ago, this little girl helped the police solve the murder of the person she got her heart from, she kept having visions of the crime. There's some kind of a chemical, it's uh... Dr. Paul Faulkner: Peptides, that's how the mind and body communicate. Sydney Wells: So it's not too big a leap to suggest that memories can also be accessed from these organs too.
  • Sydney Wells: I'm seeing things I shouldn't see!
  • [first lines] Teen on Skateboard: Oh shit! Thanks, I didn't see that. Sydney Wells: Neither did I. Sydney Wells: [voice-over while Sydney walks in the street and settles in a café] People say seeing is believing, but for me, that's not entirely true. I lost my sight when I was five years old. Those memories of what I have seen have faded so much that I doubt I'd even recognize myself anymore. Now I see using my other senses. I can smell the rain before it drops, but I can't watch it fall. I can feel the sun on my face, but I can't see it rise or set. I want to see the world like everyone else, to see the sun, the rain, the music. Oh I bet music looks beautiful.
