(1) Candice Bergen: ' I may not be a great actress but Ive become the greatest at screen orgasms. Ten seconds of heavy-breathing , roll your head from side to side, simulate a slight asthma attack, and die a little .'

(2) Andrew Martin (Robin Williams) about 'sexual relations' in Bicentennial Man (2000): ' They say (...) that you can lose yourself, everything, all boundaries , all time. The two bodies can become so mixed up that you don't know who's who or what's what. And just when the sweet confusion is so intense you think you're gonna die , you kinda do . Leaving you alone in your separate body, but the one you love is still there. That's the miracle. You can go to heaven and come back alive. Go back any time you want with the one you love .'
