Ageing bachelor and retired astronaut, Garrett Breedlove, played brilliantly by Jack Nicholson, teasingly engages his prim neighbour Aurora Greenway, played by Shirley MacLaine at her best.
Garrett: What the hell. You want to have dinner out some time?
Aurora: No, thank you.
Garrett: What about lunch? You ladies, you like to have lunch a lot, don’t you?
Aurora: You know, there’s something about your manner. It’s like you’re trying to toy with me.
Garrett: That’s right, Aurora. I’m playing with you. This is exactly…
Do you want to play, Aurora? You wanna go to lunch, we’ll have lunch.
Aurora: If you want to have lunch in some restaurant to improve the atmosphere in this neighbourhood, I wouldn’t say no.
Their subsequent lunch years later is a must-see act with some classic lines.
