About a Boy
Movie Quote Quiz

Marcus: Suddenly I realised - two people isn't enough. You need backup. If you're only two people, and someone drops off the edge, then you're on your own. Two isn't a large enough number. You need three at least.

Ellie: You like rap?
Marcus: A little. It's by black people mostly. And they're pretty angry most of the time. But sometimes they just want to have sex.

Christine: You will end up childless and alone.
Will: Well, fingers crossed, yeah.

Continuity mistake: When Will meets Rachel, right after Rachel says "Mine's Ali...Alistair", her arms keep changing positions. First she has got them on the table, then on her legs, and then on the next shot they're on the table again.
