The Holiday (2006) Poster


Jack Black: Miles



  • Miles : Iris, if you were a melody... I used only the good notes.

  • Iris : Because you're hoping you're wrong. And every time she does something that tells you she's no good, you ignore it. And every time she comes through and suprises you, she wins you over, and you lose that argument with yourself, that she's not for you.

    Miles : Exactly, and on top of that there's the old standby, I can't believe a girl like that would actually be with a guy like me.

  • Miles : You with me, Simpkins?

    Iris : Miles. You really are an incredibly decent man.

    Miles : I know. It's always been my problem.

  • Miles : It's Christmas Eve and we are going to go celebrate being young and being alive

  • Miles : Now let me ask you. Have you seen this?

    Iris : Chariots of Fire. Loved it.

    Miles : [doing an impression of the soundtrack]  Such a great score by Vangelis. He took electronic scores to a new level. It was groundbreaking. I'm gonna test you on this later. Okay. Driving Miss Daisy. Hans. Very unexpected. Do you remember how great it was?

    [doing impression of soundtrack] 

    Miles : Sassy! Love it. Is this a bad game?

    Iris : No.

    Miles : Okay.

    Iris : Keep going.

    Miles : Sometimes I get self-conscious about my...

    [interrupts himself by singing Gone with the Wind soundtrack] 

    Miles : [singing]  Are you embarrassed by this game I've started to play?

    [Stopped singing] 

    Miles : Okay. It's not a library. I can go loud.

    [grabs Jaws] 

    Miles : BA-BAM! Two notes and you've got a villain. I don't know what to say about it. Totally brill.

    [the graduate. Singing soundtrack] 

    Miles : I bet you didn't know that was all written for the movie. It was a score. Technically.

    Iris : I did know that one.

    Miles : Oh my God. Okay, this one? You have to check this out some time. The Mission. The score is genius. It just comes from a totally different place. It's like... I can't even... Just promise me you'll rent it and listen to it.

    Iris : Renting.

    Miles : Thank you. It changed my world.

  • Miles : [holds up a copy of "The Graduate" on DVD]  Uh oh... "Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio... "? I bet you didn't know, it was all written for the movie, it was a score, technically.

    Dustin Hoffman : I can't believe this... I can't go anywhere.

  • Miles : [reaching across Iris to grab something on counter]  Okay, sorry about that.

    [pregnant pause] 

    Miles : Boob graze.

    [Iris briefly surprised, then burst into merry laughter, with Miles joining in with a chuckle] 

    Miles : That was accidental.

    [gazing around with sheepish smile] 

    Miles : Accidental boob graze. I'm sorry.

    Iris : Change of subject.

    [trying to restrain laughter] 

    Miles : Okay.

  • Miles : The wind... it's what makes it so warm this time of year. Legend has it, when the Santa Anas blow, anything can happen.

  • Iris : I'm having a Hannukah party.

    Miles : Did you join a Temple since I last saw you?

  • Miles : Okay. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to kiss you twice... and then linger a long time on the second kiss.

  • Miles : Well, hello big dollop!

  • Miles : [playing the keyboard and improv-singing with Iris]  Oh my God, we both said 'fruitily'!

  • Miles : [to Iris]  You're incredible! You're a prodigy! A doodle prodigy!

  • Miles : I'm sorry, I didn't mean to kiss you twice and then linger on the second one.
