Quote
  • - Lester Burnham: Janie, today I quit my job. And then I told my boss to go fuck himself, and then I blackmailed him for almost sixty thousand dollars. Pass the asparagus.
    - Carolyn Burnham: Your father seems to think this kind of behavior is something to be proud of.
    - Lester Burnham: And your mother seems to prefer that I go through life like a fucking prisoner while she keeps my dick in a mason jar under the sink.
    - Carolyn Burnham: How dare you speak to me that way in front of her? And I marvel that you can be so contemptuous of me, on the same day that you lose your job.
    - Lester Burnham: Lose it? I didn't lose it. It's not like "Whoops! Where'd my job go?". I quit. Someone pass the asparagus, please.

    talking at the dinner table. Jane's their daughter
