Magnolia
Movie Quote Quiz

Jim Kurring: ...whatever you wanna tell me, whatever you think might scare me, won't... and I will listen... I will be a good listener to you if that's what you want... and you know, you know... I won't judge you... I can do that sometimes, I know, but I won't... I can... listen to you and you shouldn't be scared of scaring me off or anything that you might think I'll think or on and on and just say it and I'll listen to you.

Aimee Mann: Save me from the ranks of the freaks who suspect that they'll never love anyone.

Quiz Kid Donnie Smith: I know I did a stupid thing. So stupid! Getting braces. I thought... I thought he would love me. Getting... braces! And for what? For something I don't even... I don't know where to put things, you know? I really do have love to give! I just don't know where to put it.

Earl Partridge: I'll tell you the greatest regret of my life: I let my love go.

Claudia Wilson Gator: Now that I've met you, would you object to never seeing me again?

Other mistake: When Earl's wife is pulling into her garage after picking up the medication, wet tyre marks (presumably from previous takes) are visible on the garage floor.

Question: What do the frogs stand for? Is it a biblical reference, or could the screenwriters just not think of a better way to wrap up?

Answer: It's much debated the exact meaning, but it's kind of a reference saying that seemingly impossible things do happen. As we see later in the film, people stuck in similarly impossible situations might just have a chance of getting out of them.
