|Helen Hunt (Carol Connelly): Come on in,
and try not to ruin everything by being you.
(Melvin Udall): I've got a really great compliment for you, and its true.
Helen Hunt (Carol Connelly): I'm so afraid you're about to say something
Jack Nicholson (Melvin Udall): Don't be pessimistic, it's not your
style. Anyway, here goes: I've got this, what, ailment. Now, my doctor, this
shrink I used to go to all the time, says that in fifty to sixty percent of
cases, a pill really helps. I HATE pills, hate them. I'm using the word "hate"
about pills. Anyway, my compliment to you is the night after you came over and
said that you would never . . . well, you were there, you know what you said.
Anyway, the very next morning, I started taking the pills.
Hunt (Carol): I don't quite get how that's a compliment for me.
Nicholson (Melvin): You make me want to be a better man.
Hunt (Carol): That's maybe the best compliment of my life.
Nicholson (Melvin): Well maybe I overshot a little, because I was aiming at
just enough to keep you from walking out.
