My Father the Hero (1994)
Katherine Heigl: Nicole
Andre : Are you out of your mind? What the hell were you thinking about?
Nicole : You're yelling.
Andre : Of course I'm yelling! My daughter tells some stranger that her father is her, her...
Nicole : *Lover*!
Andre : Oh, God! I hate that word. It's so... so graphic. Who else thinks this?
Nicole : A few of the other people.
Andre : How many of them?
Nicole : All of them.
Andre : All of them! Incroyable! I've been walking around here with you the past few days. They think I'm child molester!
Nicole : [she starts to cry] You're yelling again.
Andre : Why... why do you make up such stories?
Nicole : I don't know. It just comes naturally to me.
Andre : So it's genetic. Is that it?
Nicole : Yes. No! I don't know.
Andre : You have to tell him the truth.
Nicole : I tried to. Believe me, it's not that easy. I care about him.
Andre : [he smiles at her] Do you love him?
Nicole : Yes, I think so. I mean, yes, I do.
Andre : Has he done anything to you?
Nicole : No, he hasn't done anything to me. Besides, if I tell him I made all this up, he'll hate me. He'll think I'm some kind of liar.
Andre : You are.
Andre : How did it go?
Nicole : He's very impressed by you. He thinks you're a great guy.
Andre : [sarcastically] What a relief.
Nicole : And I told him I'm staying with you.
Andre : Isn't he jealous?
Nicole : I told him there's nothing to be jealous of. That there's nothing between us anymore because of... Promise you won't get mad?
Andre : Why do I get so frightened every time you ask me that?
Nicole : Because of your heart.
Andre : My heart? What about my heart?
Nicole : I told him you were dying.
Andre : I'm dying now.
[everyone in the balcony looks at him]
Nicole : Daddy. I told him I had to stay with you for your final days.
Andre : *My final days*? What's the matter with you?
Nicole : I don't know once I start lying, I can't stop. It's kind of addictive.
Andre : What I'm dying of?
Nicole : A rare disease you caught in Africa.
Andre : When was I in Africa?
Nicole : During the Hundred Years War.
Andre : The Hundred Years War was in the Middle Ages, in Europe!
Nicole : He didn't seem to notice.
Andre : Why not the Crusades?
[Nicole rolls her eyes at him]
[Nicole stands up, wearing a thong bathing suit]
Andre : What - what's that?
Nicole : What's the matter?
Andre : What are you wearing?
Nicole : My bathing suit!
Andre : The whole thing?
Nicole : What, you don't like it?
Andre : Are you sure you didn't leave part of it in the box?
Nicole : Get real, Andre. Everybody's wearing them.
Andre : Everyone's staring at you!
Nicole : No, everyone's staring at you.
Andre : I insist you change!
Nicole : And I insist you loosen up, Andre, dear.
[Kisses him on the cheek]
Stella : Now she's French.
Nicole : Daddy, can I talk to you about something?
Andre : Of course. You can talk to me about anything.
Nicole : Anything?
Andre : Anything at all. What is it? Tell me.
Nicole : Promise not to yell.
Andre : I promise. Now tell me.
Nicole : It's really not that bad.
Andre : Tell me.
Nicole : You said you wouldn't yell.
Andre : That was not yelling, trust me.
Nicole : I told Ben you weren't my father.
Andre : Why?
Nicole : Because I wanted to impress him.
Andre : What did you tell him I was? A famous pianist? A wirter? What?
Nicole : [she takes a deep breath] I told him you were my lover.
Andre : Are you serious?
Nicole : Yes.
