A futuristic 'Brief Encounter', a love story in which the romance is doomed by genetic incompatibility.

Maria: Can you miss someone you don't remember? Can one moment or experience ever disappear completely, or does it always exist somewhere, waiting to be discovered?
Maria: You have a kid?
William: Yeah?
Maria: Chico or chica?
William: Chico.
Maria: I bet he's special.
William: He *is* special.
Maria: Everybody's children are so special. It makes you wonder where all the ordinary grown-ups come from.
Maria: If we had enough information, we could predict the consequences of our actions. Would you want to know? If you kissed that girl, if you talked to that man, if you take that job, or marry that woman, or steal that papel? If we knew what would happen in the end, would we ever be able to take the first step, to make the first move?
William: Tell me something about yourself.
William: I always wondered why the coyote didn't just go out and buy a Road Runner. He had enough money to buy rocket-powered roller-skates so he had money to buy a Road Runner.
Wole: There is no freckles pornography.
William: Well, there is "Anne of Green Gables".
Wole: I consider "Anne of Green Gables" to be an erotic masterpiece.
Maria: Make love to me. Make me make love to you.
William: Why is she in here? And please, do not use the word finger at any point in your answer.
Maria: If we are frightened, we run. It's our instinct. Adrenaline pumps round the body. The muscles contract. Our heart beats faster. And we run. We run for our lives, we run for safety, for our home, our families, our loved ones.

Maria: I miss you.
William: [having trouble with ticketing] What am I going to do, piss out the window at 60,000 feet?
Check In: I wouldn't know enough about your character to say, sir.
Maria: [to William] You know, one of my fingers is younger than the others.

Maria: I think about the day we met. I suppose you arrived par avion. Maybe you were the first to get to security. You didn't intend to stay. You only had 24-hour cover, so luggage was a mano. And they probably had a driver waiting, so you didn't need to find un coche. You'd never been to Shanghai before. It was all new to you.
William: Lo siento.
Maria: "Lo siento... Lo siento." You say that too much.
William: Damn, I'm all out of bibles.

William's Boss: We all have problems, William. How we deal with them is a measure of our worth.
William: I shouldn't be in Shanghai, I should be in Seattle.
