David Fincher

Fight Club (1999)

Tyler Durden: [pointing at an emergency instruction manual on a plane] You know why they put oxygen masks on planes?  
Narrator: So you can breathe. 
Tyler Durden: Oxygen gets you high. In a catastrophic emergency, you're taking giant panicked breaths. Suddenly you become euphoric, docile. You accept your fate. It's all right here. Emergency water landing - 600 miles an hour. Blank faces, calm as Hindu cows. 
Narrator: That's, um... That's an interesting theory. 
Tyler Durden: Where'd you go, psycho boy 
Narrator: I felt like destroying something beautiful. 
Narrator: Oh, yeah, Chloe... Chloe looked the way Meryl Streep's skeleton would look if you made it smile and walk around the party being extra nice to everybody.  
Chloe: Well, I'm still here. But I don't know for how long. That's as much certainty as anyone can give me. But I've got some good news: I no longer have any fear of death. But... I am in a pretty lonely place. No one will have sex with me. I'm so close to the end, and all I want is to get laid for the last time. I have pornographic movies in my apartment, and lubricants, and amyl nitrite... 
[the group leader takes the micGroup Leader: Thank you, Chloe... everyone, let's thank Chloe. 
Narrator: [while brutally beating Angel Face] I felt like putting a bullet between the eyes of every Panda that wouldn't screw to save its species. I wanted to open the dump valves on oil tankers and smother all the French beaches I'd never see. I wanted to breathe smoke.

The Social Network (2010)

Mark Zuckerberg: As for any charges stemming from the breach of security, I believe I deserve some recognition from this board. 
Ad Board Chairwoman: I'm sorry? 
Mark Zuckerberg: Yes?  
Ad Board Chairwoman: I don't understand. 
Mark Zuckerberg: Which part?
Erica Albright: You are probably going to be a very successful computer person. But you're going to go through life thinking that girls don't like you because you're a nerd. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that won't be true. It'll be because you're an asshole.  
Erica Albright: [Angry] I'm sorry you are not sufficiently impressed with my education. 
Mark Zuckerberg: I'm sorry I don't have a rowboat, so we're even. 
Erica Albright: I think we should just be friends. 
Mark Zuckerberg: I don't want friends.  
Erica Albright: I was just being polite, I have no intention of being friends with you.
