Parasite (2019) quotes
Kim Ki-jung : She may look like a sheep, but inside, she's a fox. Sometimes she acts like she owns the house.
Kim Ki-woo : Right. Of all the people in that house, she's lived there the longest. She was housekeeper to the architect Namgoong, but then she went on to work for this family. When the architect moved out, he introduced this woman to Park's family, telling them, "This is a great housekeeper, you should hire her".
Chung-sook, Ki-taek's wife : So she survived a change of ownership.
Kim Ki-woo : She won't give up such a good job easily.
Kim Ki-jung : To extract a woman like that, we need to prepare well.
Kim Ki-woo : Right, we need a plan.
Park Da-hye : I want to eat peaches. I like peaches best.
Kim Ki-woo : Why not ask for some?
Park Da-hye : No peaches at our house. It's a forbidden fruit.
Kim Ki-woo : So according to what Da-hye told me, she's got a pretty serious allergy to peaches. You know that fuzz on the peach skin? If she's anywhere near it, she gets a full body rash, has trouble breathing, asthma, a total meltdown!
Ki-taek : Anyway. I wasn't trying to eavesdrop, but her words came through clearly! So I couldn't help but...
Kim Ki-woo : Cut, cut! Dad, your emotions are up to here. Bring them down to about there.
Ki-taek : So I couldn't help but overhear...
Kim Ki-woo : Keep it focused!
Ki-taek : What I'm trying to say is... it's just that, your housekeeper's voice is quite loud, you know?
Park Yeon-kyo : I understand, it's all right. Just tell me, okay?
Ki-taek : She said she got diagnosed with active tuberculosis and she was practically shouting over the phone, so upset she could barely control herself!
Park Yeon-kyo : Tuberculosis? Come on...
Ki-taek : It's true, she phoned someone saying she had active TB.
Kim Ki-woo , Park Yeon-kyo : Do people still get TB?
Kim Ki-woo : Dad, back in the day, people used to buy Christmas Seals, right? Feels like a bygone era.
Ki-taek : But I saw it on the internet. Korea has the #1 rate of TB of all the OECD countries.
Kim Ki-woo : But she's still working, as if nothing's wrong - with a kid like Da-song in the house.
Ki-taek : [cut back to Ki-taek and Mrs. Park] So you've got a young kid like Da-song in the house, and a TB patient is doing dishes, cooking, spraying spittle...
Park Yeon-kyo : Stop it, please!
Dad, today I made a plan - a fundamental plan. I'm going to earn money, a lot of it. University, a career, marriage, those are all fine, but first I'll earn money. When I have money, I'll buy the house. On the day we move in, Mom and I will be in the yard. Because the sunshine is so nice there. All you'll need to do is walk up the stairs. Take care until then. So long.
You know what kind of plan never fails? No plan. No plan at all. You know why? Because life cannot be planned. Look around you. Did you think these people made a plan to sleep in the sports hall with you? But here we are now, sleeeping together on the floor. So, there's no need for a plan. You can't go wrong with no plans. We don't need to make a plan for anything. It doesn't matter what will happen next. Even if the country gets destroyed or sold out, nobody cares. Got it?
