ERIC: “Alright, listen up. I’m supposed to give you some fatherly and wise advice at this time in your life. Listen up, if you’re wondering if a boy is thinking about you - he’s not. He’s thinking about sex or he’s hungry. Those are the only two options.”
JULIE: “Are you trying to be funny?”
ERIC: “No, I’m not finished, listen to me. Boys think about sex every single minute of the day. That’s what they do, that’s why they lie. They’re gonna leave you waiting around for them to call and they won’t call. They’re gonna be cruel and they’re gonna be misleading… And your mother wanted me to add this, that by in large, football players are the worst offenders, however, I think that it pretty much crosses all lines.”
JULIE: “Are you done?”
ERIC: “You are beautiful. You are sensitive. You are sweet and I don’t want to see you get hurt.”
JULIE: “I love you too, Dad.”
ERIC: “You’re a lousy ping-pong player though.”

- JESSE EISENBERG: People on the street say mean things to me.
- INTERVIEWER: Like what?
- JESSE EISENBERG: I get called Napoleon Dynamite because I have curly hair. I live in New York City and I ride a bicycle. I always bike down 9th Avenue and there’s this kid who goes to school there named Abraham. Every time I pass him, he calls me Napoleon Dynamite. He screams it out and his friends laugh. That was a fine movie but I wasn’t in it.
- INTERVIEWER: What do you say back?
- JESSE EISENBERG: I say, “Please Abraham, I’m not that man.”
