Silver Linings Playbook Monologues

Silver Linings Playbook (Jake)

JAKE: So, listen, I”m sorry that I didn”t come see you down at the hospital. You know how those places creep me out, and the firm”s been expanding. I”ve been helping Pop with the restaurant “cause he needs to have a legitimate business. He needs a tax return. With all the money that he”s making with his bookmaking, they”re gonna come after him. And then it looks like I”m making, I”m gonna make partner at the firm. (Pat just stares at Jake. The room is silent.) Well, I don”t even know what to say to you anymore. You lost your wife, I”m getting engaged, and I wanna be able to tell you about those kind of things. You lost your house, I”m getting a new house. You lost your job, things are going great for me at the firm. You know what, I”m just gonna, I”m just gonna, I”m just gonna stop talking. I”m gonna shut my mouth.More Monologues from “Silver Linings Playbook”

Silver Linings Playbook (Pat and Ernest Hemingway)

PAT: (yelling) I just can”t believe Nikki”s teaching that book to the kids. I mean the whole time – let me just break it down for you – the whole time you”re rooting for this Hemingway guy to survive the war and to be with the woman that he loves, Catherine Barkley… and he does. He does. He survives the war, after getting blown up he survives it, and he escapes to Switzerland with Catherine. But now Catherine”s pregnant. Isn”t that wonderful? She”s pregnant. And they escape up into the mountains and they”re gonna be happy, and they”re gonna be drinking wine and they dance – they both like to dance with each other, there”s scenes of them dancing, which was boring, but I liked it, because they were happy. You think he ends it there? No! He writes another ending. She dies, Dad! I mean, the world”s hard enough as it is, guys. It”s f – hard enough as it is. Can”t somebody say, “Hey, let”s be positive? Let”s have a good ending to the story?” I”m not gonna apologize for this. You know what I will do? I will apologize on behalf of Ernest Hemingway, because that”s who”s to blame here.More Monologues from “Silver Linings Playbook”

Silver Linings Playbook (Pat Defends His Relationship)

PAT: It”s not at all like me and Nikki. What are you talking about? We”re in love and we”re married. It”s completely different. We have a very unconventional chemistry, it makes people feel awkward, but not me. She”s the most beautiful woman I”ve ever been with. It”s electric between us, okay? Yeah, we wanna change each other, but that”s normal, couples wanna do that, I want her to stop dressing like she dresses, I want her to stop acting so superior to me, okay? And she wanted me to lose weight and stop my mood swings, both of which I”ve done. I mean, people fight. Couples fight. We would fight, we wouldn”t talk for a couple weeks. That”s normal. She always wanted the best for me. She wanted me to be passionate and compassionate. And that”s a good thing. You know? I just, look, I”m my best self today, and I think she”s her best self today, and our love”s gonna be f – amazing.More Monologues from “Silver Linings Playbook”

Silver Linings Playbook (Tiffany)

TIFFANY: Yes. Do you feel that? That”s emotion. Has anybody ever told you how Tommy died? We were married for three years and five days, and I loved him. But for the last couple months, I just wasn”t into sex at all. It just felt like we were so different and I was depressed. Some of that is just me, some of it was he wanted me to have kids and I have a hard enough time taking care of myself. I don”t think that makes me a criminal. Anyway one night after dinner, he drove to Victoria”s Secret at King of Prussia Mall and got some lingerie to get something going. And on the way back, he stopped on 76 to help a guy with a flat tire and he got hit by a car and killed. And the Victoria”s Secret box was still in the front seat. (pause) That”s a feeling.More Monologues from “Silver Linings Playbook”
