Chances Are (1989) Poster


Ryan O'Neal: Philip, Louie's friend



  • [Philip tells Corinne and Alex the things he believes in to be real] 

    Philip Train : Now, look, I'm just a dumb newspaper man. I believe Monday follows Sunday. I believe that summer follows spring. I believe in God and glasnost. I believe in things you can touch.

  • [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!

  • [last lines] 

    Alex Finch : Philip.

    Philip Train : Yeah.

    Alex Finch : There's something I have to tell you.

    Philip Train : Now?

    Alex Finch : I'm in love with Miranda.

    Philip Train : I know.

    [both men smile, as Alex looks to Miranda walking up the aisle in her bridesmaid dress, and Philip looks to Corinne walking up the aisle in her wedding dress] 

    Second Minister : [the wedding Officiant begins to speak]  Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of God to witness and bless...

  • [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.

  • [Alex and Philip get in a fight on the floor about not believing Alex is Louie] 

    Alex Finch : [Alex defensively yells]  I'm Louie!

    Philip Train : Yeah, and I'm Cleopatra!

    Alex Finch : [Philip wrestles Alex down]  You are not!

    Alex Finch : You fight like her though!

  • [first lines] 

    Philip Train : [Philip the best friend and best man, tells Louie the groom, he's in love with Corinne the soon-to-be married bride]  Louie. There's something I have to tell you.

    Louie Jeffries : [as Corinne walks up the aisle in her wedding dress]  Now?

    Philip Train : I'm in love with Corinne.

    Louie Jeffries : [Louie smiles not taking his eyes off Corinne]  I know.

  • [Alex drives home Philip to Corinne's house] 

    Philip Train : [Philip looks around the mess throughout Alex's front seat]  What are you doing for dinner?

    Alex Finch : Dinner? Uh...

    Philip Train : [Alex opens his glove compartment revealing a couple oranges and a newspaper]  You're coming with me. My friends live just down the street.

  • [Alex comes out of the bathroom, remembering that he was Louie in a previous life] 

    Alex Finch : Philip, it's great to see you again.

    Philip Train : [Alex wraps a tight hug around Philip]  It's great to see you.

    Alex Finch : [Alex and Philip turn to see both Miranda and Corinne staring them down, as Alex gets terrified again to have to run back into the bathroom]  Excuse me.

    [Alex runs back into the bathroom slamming the door shut] 

  • [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] 

  • [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.
