La La Land (2016) Poster

(I) (2016)

Ryan Gosling: Sebastian



  • Sebastian : They worship everything and they value nothing.

  • Sebastian : I'm letting life hit me until it gets tired. Then I'll hit back. It's a classic rope-a-dope.

  • Sebastian : Alright, I remember you. And I'll admit I was a little curt that night.

    Mia : "Curt?"

    Sebastian : Okay, I was an asshole. I can admit that. But requesting "I Ran" from a serious musician, it's just, it's too far.

    Mia : My Lord, did you just say "a serious musician?"

    Sebastian : I don't think so.

    Mia : Can I borrow what you're wearing?

    Sebastian : Why?

    Mia : Because I have an audition next week. I'm playing a serious firefighter.

    Sebastian : So you're an actress? I thought you looked familiar. Have I seen you in anything?

    Mia : Uhh, the coffee shop on the Warner Brothers lot, that's a classic.

    Sebastian : Oh I see.

    Mia : Yeah.

    Sebastian : So you're a barista? And I can see how you could then look down on me from all the way up there.

  • Mia : It's pretty strange that we keep running into each other.

    Sebastian : Maybe it means something.

    Mia : I doubt it.

    Sebastian : Yeah, I didn't think so.

  • Sebastian : I guess I'll see you in the movies.

  • Mia : I'm always gonna love you.

    Sebastian : I'm always gonna love you, too.

  • Bill : You're fired.

    Sebastian : It's Christmas.

    Bill : Yeah, I see the decorations. Good luck in the New Year.

  • Sebastian : Fuck them!

    Mia : [mildly amused]  That's what you always say.

  • Sebastian : You're a barista? I can see how you can look down on me from all the way up there.

  • Sebastian : I thought you wanted me to do this, it just sounds like now you don't want me to do it.

    Mia : What do you mean, I wanted you to do this?

    Sebastian : This is what you wanted for me.

    Mia : To be in this band?

    Sebastian : To be in a band, to have a steady job, you know to be... you know.

    Mia : Of course, I wanted you to have a steady job so that you could take care of yourself and your life and you could start your club.

    Sebastian : Yeah, so I'm doing that, so I don't understand like why aren't we celebrating?

    Mia : Why aren't you starting your club?

    Sebastian : You said yourself no one wants to go that club. No one wants to go to a club called 'Chicken on a Stick.'

    Mia : So change the name!

    Sebastian : Well, no one likes jazz, not even you!

    Mia : I do like jazz now because of you!

  • Sebastian : What do you mean you don't like jazz?

    Mia : It just means that when I listen to it, I don't like it.

  • Karen (Waitress) : [passing by the piano]  Welcome back, Seb.

    Sebastian : [to himself]  There's a nice way to say that, Karen.

  • Sebastian : I want to let you know you're looking at a new man. A man who's happy to be here.

    Boss : Right, and you'll play the set list.

    Sebastian : Gladly... Although, you know, I thought in this town it worked on a sort of "one for you, one for me" basis type system. How about two for you, one for me?

    Sebastian : How about all for you and none for me?

    Boss : That's perfect, yes.

    Sebastian : Great.

    Boss : Okay.

    Sebastian : Okay, a mutual decision then.

    Boss : Made by me.

    Sebastian : Right, and I sign off on it, so...

    Boss : Whatever. Tell yourself what you want to know.

  • Sebastian : You should come.

    Mia : To Boise?

    Sebastian : You can knock it off your bucket list.

  • Sebastian : I'm always gonna love you.

    Mia : I'm always gonna love you, too.

  • Mia : Maybe I'm not good enough!

    Sebastian : Yes, you are.

    Mia : Maybe I'm not! It's like a pipe dream.

    Sebastian : This is the dream! It's conflict and it's compromise, and it's very, very exciting!

  • Sebastian : You could just write your own rules. You know, write something that's as interesting as you are.

    Mia : What are you gonna do?

    Sebastian : Have my own club.

  • Mia : I should probably tell you something now, just to get it out of the way.

    Sebastian : Mm-hmm?

    Mia : I hate jazz.

  • Sebastian : Pisi-kaka!

  • Sebastian : [about jazz]  It's conflict and it's compromise, and it's just... it's new every time. It's brand new every night. It's very, very exciting!
