Memorable Monologue: Joe Versus The Volcano


"I've always kept clear of my father's stuff ever since I got out on my own. And now he's pulling me back in. He knew I wanted this boat and he used it and he got me working for him, which I swore I would never do. I feel ashamed because I had a price. He named it and now I know that about myself. And I could treat you like I did back out on the dock, but that would be me kicking myself for selling out, which isn't fair to you. Doesn't make me feel any better. I don't know what your situation is but I wanted you to know what mine is not just to explain some rude behavior, but because we're on a little boat for a while and... I'm soul sick. And you're going to see that."

~ Meg Ryan as Patricia in Joe Versus The Volcano (1990)

Wow. I can't believe that was only 1990. Oh...I feel so old.

Loved this film. Tom and Meg were good in films together.
