Jonah[edit]

  • Shut up, shut up?! Mom never said shut up to me! Mom never yelled at me!

Sam[edit]

  • Move on. Right. That's what I'm going to do. In a few months, I'll be fine, I'll just grow a new heart.
  • Look, we had a tough time at first, but we're dealing with it. Jonah and I will get along fine again...as soon as I break his radio.
  • I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home, only to no home I'd ever known. I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car. And I knew. It was like... magic.
  • Mommy got sick. And it happened just like that. There was nothing anybody could do. It isn't fair. There's no reason. But if we start asking why, we'll go crazy.

Conversations[edit]

  • Jonah: Dad, she's a doctor.
  • Sam: How do you know? Her first name could be "Doctor."

  • Barbara: I was in Atlantic City with my family. Cliff was a waiter. He wasn't even supposed to work that night, and suppose he hadn't? He asked me to take a midnight walk on the Steel Pier. I've probably told you this a million times, but I don't care. And then he held my hand. At one point I looked down and I couldn't tell which fingers were his and which were mine. And I knew.
  • ANNIE: What?
  • BARBARA: You know.
  • ANNIE: What?
  • BARBARA: Magic. It was magic.
  • ANNIE: Magic.
  • BARBARA: I knew we would be together forever, and that everything would be wonderful, just the way you feel about Walter. Walter. It's quite a formal name, isn't it?

  • MAGGIE: What did I used to say? Here's looking at you? Here's mud in your eye?
  • SAM: Here's to us. You used to say here's to us. Oh babe. I miss you so much it hurts.

  • SAM: I'd much rather just see somebody I like, and get a feeling about them, and ask them if they want to have a drink.
  • JONAH: -- or a slice of pizza --
  • SAM: Not dinner. Not necessarily on the first date because halfway through dinner you could be really sorry you asked them to dinner. Whereas if it's just a drink, if you like them you can always ask them for dinner but if not, you can just say, "Well, that was great," and then you go home. If you see what I mean. (beat) I wonder if it still works this way.
  • JONAH: It doesn't. They ask you.
  • SAM: I'm starting to notice that.

  • ANNIE: Now those were the days when people knew how to be in love.
  • BECKY: You're a basket case.
  • ANNIE: They knew it. Time, distance, nothing could separate them. Because they knew. It was right. It was real. It was...
  • BECKY: .. a movie. (beat) That's your problem. You don't want to be in love. You want to be in love in a movie.
