Chances Are (1989) Poster


Cybill Shepherd: Corinne, Wife



  • [Corinne tells her psychiatrist Dr. Bailey, about feeling attractive after meeting Alex] 

    Corinne Jeffries : Oh, Dr. Bailey, I don't know if it's just his body I'm attracted to or his soul. Or if it's just me.

    Corinne Jeffries : [Corinne lays back in the long chair]  Mmm. I'm feeling... Generally... Attractive. The truth is, I'm so ripe, I'm about to fall off the vine.

  • [Miranda demands an explanation from her mother Corinne, on why Alex has to leave] 

    Corinne Jeffries : He's... Weird.

    Miranda Jeffries : Mom... Weirdness is not a criminal offense. If it were, you'd be serving a life sentence.

  • [Corinne tells Philip that her and Louie are having a baby] 

    Corinne Jeffries : Philip.

    Philip Train : Hmm?

    Corinne Jeffries : We're having a baby.

    Philip Train : [Philip pauses, whispering to Corinne in front of Louie]  How are we going to break the news to Louie?

    Corinne Jeffries : [the three laugh together and hug each other]  Philip!

  • [Philip accuses Alex of only using Corinne and tells her] 

    Corinne Jeffries : Corinne, he's got you figured out. All he wants is your money.

    Corinne Jeffries : You're wrong. He wants my body.

    [Philip stares down Alex] 

  • [Corrine talks about the psychiatric term to her condition over her late husband] 

    Corinne Jeffries : My psychiatrist says I suffer from the halo effect, the tendency of widows to idealize their dead husbands. He says it keeps me from falling in love again. He has a point, but I can't imagine I'll ever stop loving Louie.

  • [Corinne tells her psychiatrist Dr. Bailey, about meeting Alex] 

    Corinne Jeffries : Dr. Bailey. I came here to tell you... That I'm interested in someone. A man. Well, he's almost a man.

    Dr. Bailey : What do you mean?

    Corinne Jeffries : He's 22 years old. But it's not like I'm rushing into anything, I've known him for 26 years.

    Dr. Bailey : Corinne.

    Dr. Bailey : It's a little complicated.

    [as Dr. Bailey notices Corinne is wearing opposite colored shoes, when Corinne tries to cover one shoe with the other] 

  • [Philip finally tells Corinne that he's in love with her] 

    Philip Train : I'm finding out once and for all what it feels like to hold the woman I love. I've always loved and will always love 'till the day I die.

    Philip Train : [Philip kisses Corinne on the lips]  I love you, Corinne.

    Corinne Jeffries : Why didn't you ever tell me?

    Philip Train : How could I?

    Corinne Jeffries : All these years...

    Philip Train : Louie was always there with us, every moment. In your heart. In my heart. In the air.

    Corinne Jeffries : But I don't feel him here now.

  • [Louie walks into the backyard of his home, seeing Corinne plant the new tree seedling with Philip] 

    Corinne Jeffries : Philip, I think we'll call the tree George.

  • [Corinne tells her psychiatrist, Dr. Bailey, how she's been feeling about Louie] 

    Dr. Bailey : How have you been feeling?

    Corinne Jeffries : Fantastic. It was Louie's birthday on Saturday. I baked him a cake with little cherries on it.

    Dr. Bailey : I thought we agreed that you were going to stop cooking for him.

    Corinne Jeffries : It was his birthday. It makes me happy to feed him. The Egyptians fed their dead.

    Dr. Bailey : Not after 23 years.

  • [Alex tries to tell Corinne that he's Louie] 

    Alex Finch : I'm not going to beat around the bush. You won't believe me, but there's something you should know.

    Corinne Jeffries : All right.

    Alex Finch : [Alex holds back from telling Corinne the truth, yelling]  Our rain forests are being destroyed at a rate of 50 acres a minute!

  • [Corinne asks Philip if he believes someone like Louie could come back to life] 

    Philip Train : Corinne... I can understand how a person's desires might lead her to believe that. It would be a dream come true. But the last guy to come back, that I know about, was Jesus Christ. You'll see Louie someday.

    Corinne Jeffries : I know, in Heaven.

    [Corinne kisses Philip on the cheek] 

  • [Alex and Corinne have a pillow fight as she denies to believe he's the real Louie] 

    Alex Finch : I know everything about you, Corinne. I know that you love peanut butter, and rhubarb, and cats with yellow eyes.

    Corinne Jeffries : You're a psychic. You're one of Shirley McClaine's kooks! A spook-bender.

    Alex Finch : You love Johnny Manthis.

    Corinne Jeffries : [Corinne hits Alex with the pillow]  Get out of here!

    Alex Finch : You hate flat feet.

    Corinne Jeffries : [Corinne hits Alex with the pillow again]  Before I scream so loud that everybody in the neighborhood shows up. I'll have you arrested for impersonating a person.

    Alex Finch : And I know you did the Watusi before Lucy Baines, remember? Remember this?

    [Alex kisses Corinne's mouth which gets her mouth to scream while closed, as she moans, the two fall-kissing in her and Louie's bed] 

  • [Corinne and Alex talk about Miranda while out on a date] 

    Alex Finch : What was Miranda like at 10?

    Corinne Jeffries : At 10? Precocious. Opinionated. Fiercely independent. She got braces then, which she removed with pliers after wearing them for about an hour.

    Corinne Jeffries : [Alex chuckles]  I remember Philip telling her, 'All great beauties must suffer and sacrifice'

  • [Alex asks Corinne to have more babies with him] 

    Alex Finch : [Alex holds Corinne in his hands]  I want to have at least... Two more.

    Corinne Jeffries : Babies?

    Alex Finch : [Alex nods]  It's not too late is it?

    Corinne Jeffries : No.

    Alex Finch : [Alex frowns and smiles]  Can we start tonight?

  • [Corinne sneaks into Alex's bedroom and into his bed wearing only lingerie, crawling under the sheets, not knowing it's Philip she starts to kiss] 

    Corinne Jeffries : Oh, Louie!

    Philip Train : Louie?

    Corinne Jeffries : [Corinne sits up turning on the bedroom light]  Philip?

    Corinne Jeffries : [Corinne covers her chest with the blanket sheet]  What are you doing here?

    Philip Train : I'm not sure.

    Corinne Jeffries : Whatever just happened between us was...

    Philip Train : A miracle.

    Corinne Jeffries : We almost... We could've...

    Philip Train : We still can.

  • [the real Alex compliments Corinne on getting married to Philip] 

    Alex Finch : I just want to say congratulations. You and Philip make a great pair.

    Corinne Jeffries : [Corinne takes Alex by the shoulder]  Thanks Alex. You know. You're the first boyfriend of Miranda's I ever really liked.
