Movie Quote Quiz

Dee: Jane, do you ever feel like you are just this far from being completely hysterical twenty four hours a day?
Jane: Half the people I know feel that way. The lucky ones feel that way. The rest of the people ARE hysterical twenty four hours a day.

Mack: He's kinda lonely, but he seems peaceful about it.
Jane: That would be nice.

Mack: Of course, it would also be nice not to feel bad most of the time.
Dee: Yeah, but that's how you get yourself in trouble. By thinking how nice it'd be to be happy more.

Mack: I'm getting a headache.
Claire: No, you're not.
Mack: I'm not?
Claire: No and I'll tell you why I reject your headache Mac, because it's inappropriate. If I am right and these events are truly miracles, then it's an innapropriate response to get a headache in the presence of a miracle.

Claire: Look, Mack, I don't even know what I'm gonna say from one second to the next. The world doesn't make any sense to me any more. What's going on? There are babies lying around in the streets. There are people living in boxes. There are people ready to shoot you if you look at them. And we're getting used to it. The world is so nuts, it makes me wonder about all the choices that we've made.

Continuity mistake: After Kevin Kline slices his thumb (finger?) in the kitchen, his wife bandages it. Then, as the earthquake hits, they run outside and you can see that the bandage doubles in size.
