One Hour Photo

One Hour Photo
Sy Parrish: According to The Oxford English Dictionary, the word "snapshot" was originally a hunting term.

Sy Parrish: Pretend it's all pretend.

Sy Parrish: If pictures have anything to say, it's this: I was here, I existed. I was young and happy and someone cared enough about me to take my picture.

Sy Parrish: Nobody takes a picture of something they want to forget.

Bill Owens: You have no reason to develop your photos here except to annoy me.
Sy Parrish: I have a reason. I personally calibrated that machine. I know it's the best in the state.

Sy Parrish: What the hell is wrong with these people?

[Quoting Deepak Chopra]
Sy Parrish: The things you're most afraid of have already happened.

Sy Parrish: All I did was take pictures...

Sy Parrish: Am I talking to a brick wall? Did I tell you to touch her? If you touch her again; I stab you in the heart!

Jakob: When someone seems sad and don't have any friends, it makes me feel bad for them.
Nina: Who is sad and doesn't have any friends?
Jakob: Sy!
Nina: The Photo Guy at the one hour place? Well, we really don't know that much about him do we. He might even have a lot of friends. He probably has a girlfriend and a mommy and daddy, who love him.
Jakob: I don't think he does.

Nina: You've been doing my pictures for a long time.
Sy Parrish: I almost feel like "Uncle Sy!"

Sy Parrish: Most people don't take snapshots of the little things. The used Band-Aid, the guy at the gas station, the wasp on the Jell-O. But these are the things that make up the true picture of our lives. People don't take pictures of these things.
