“Marshall: They just pay me to drive the limo, sir. I’m not here to tell you who you are.
Joe Banks: I didn’t ask you to tell me who I am.
Marshall: You were hinting around about clothes. That happens to be a very important topic to me, sir. Clothes, Mr…
Joe Banks: Banks.
Marshall: Banks. Clothes make the man. I believe that. You say to me you want to go shopping, you want to buy clothes, but you don’t know what kind. You leave that hanging in the air, like I’m going to fill in the blank, that to me is like asking me who you are, and I don’t know who you are, I don’t want to know. It’s taken me my whole life to find out who I am, and I’m tired now, you hear what I’m saying?”
“Marshall: What kinda clothes do you got now?
Joe Banks: Well, I got the kinda clothes I’m wearing.
Marshall: So you got no clothes.”
“Joe Banks: Marshall?
Joe Banks: I was wondering if you’d have dinner with me tonight.
Marshall: I can’t do that; I got the wife and kids at the end of the day.
Joe Banks: Yeah…
Marshall: Listen, ain’t you got nobody?
Joe Banks: No. But there are certain times in your life when I guess you’re not supposed to have anybody, you know? There are certain doors you have to go through alone.
Marshall: …You’re gonna be all right.”
— Ossie Davis as Marshall, Tom Hanks as Joe in Joe vs the Volcano

Joe Banks: Away from the things of man, my love. Away from the things of man.” — Joe and Patricia as they float away from the volcano…
