As good a summary of the modern male condition as I've ever seen.

Trent: You know what you are? You're like a big bear with claws and with fangs...

Scott: ... big fucking teeth, man.

Trent: Yeah... big fuckin' teeth on ya'. And she's just like this little bunny, who's just kinda cowering in the corner.

Scott: Shivering.

Trent: Yeah, man just kinda... you know, you got these claws and you're staring at these claws and your thinking to yourself, and with these claws you're thinking, "How am I supposed to kill this bunny, how am I supposed to kill this bunny?"

Scott: And you're poking at it, you're poking at it...

Trent: Yeah, you're not hurting it. You're just kinda gently batting the bunny around, you know what I mean? And the bunny's scared Mike, the bunny's scared of you, shivering.

Scott: And you got these fucking claws and these fangs...

Trent: And you got these fucking claws and these fangs, man! And you're looking at your claws and you're looking at your fangs. And you're thinking to yourself, you don't know what to do, man. "I don't know how to kill the bunny." With *this* you don't know how to kill the bunny, do you know what I mean?

Scott: You're like a big bear, man.

Mike: So you're not just like fucking with me?

Trent: No I'm not fucking with you.

Scott: Honestly, man.


Swingers wasn't a good movie, but it had its amusing parts. This summary of how guys aren't aware of their percieved power is one of the most insightful yet amusing things I've seen in a movie in a long time. Also watch out for a neat little cameo by Ron Livingston (Peter from Office Space), talking about how you forget about a girl and move on.
