How Far Would You Go To Become Someone Else

If I could just go back... if I could rub everything out... starting with myself.
[Tom Ripley]

[Dickie Greenleaf]: Everybody should have one talent, what's yours? 
[Tom Ripley]: Forging signatures, telling lies... impersonating practically anybody.
[Dickie Greenleaf]: That's three, nobody should have more than one talent. 

[Tom Ripley]: Don't you just take the past, and put it in a room in the basement, and lock the door and never go in there? 
That's what I do. 
[Peter]: God, yes. Though in my case, it's probably a whole building.

Good things about Mr. Ripley? Could take some time. 
Tom is talented. Tom is tender. Tom is beautiful. Tom is a mystery. Tom is not a nobody. 
Tom has secrets he doesn't want to tell me, and I wish he would. 
Tom has nightmares. That's not a good thing. 
Tom has someone to love him. That is a good thing. 
Tom is crushing me. Tom is crushing me... Tom, you're crushing me! 

You know, people always say that you can't choose your parents, 
but you can't choose your children... 
[Herbert Greenleaf]
