Julie Pierce: I never think about my future.
Eric McGowen: Sure you do. What're you going to do next month?
Julie Pierce: Don't know.
Eric McGowen: What're you going to do next week?
Julie Pierce: Don't care.
Eric McGowen: What're you going to do in the next five seconds?
Julie Pierce: I'm going to make you swear that you won't tell anybody about the hawk.
Holly Kennedy: That's a real honest to goodness couple right there. They've probably been together since the flood.
Daniel Connelly: We're so arrogant, aren't we? So afraid of age, we do everything we can to prevent it. We don't realize what a privilege it is to grow old with someone. Someone who doesn't drive you to commit murder or doesn't humiliate you beyond repair.
Holly Kennedy: Dear Gerry, you said you wanted me to fall in love again, and maybe one day I will. But there are all kinds of love out there. This is my one and only life, And it's a great and terrible and short and endless thing, and none of us come out of it alive. I don't have a plan... Except, it's time my mom laughed again. She has never seen the world... She has never seen Ireland. So, I'm taking her back where we started... Maybe now she'll understand. I don't know how you did it, but you brought me back from the dead. I'll write to you again soon. P.S... Guess what?

John: What is that smell?
Holly: I wasn't expecting company. Mom, don't clean.
Patricia: I'm not. I'll just organize the garbage.
Denise: We did try to call first.
Sharon: Are you drunk?
Ciara: Do you wanna be?
Patricia: Ciara! [To Holly.] What happened to your head?
Patricia: You're not showering?
Denise: You always squeeze too hard.
John: What is that smell?
Holly: It's me, all right?
Sharon: Hey, hey, hey, don't be like that.
Holly: Like what?
Sharon: Like the only lonely widow in Gotham City.
Holly: I'm just exhausted.
Denise: Yeah, well, what are you doing, two shows a night?
Patricia: You know the worst thing for a parent... Second after losing a child? Watching your child head for the same life you had. You can't stop it. It's a terrible, helpless feeling. Makes you angry all the time. And I've been angry. For a very long time. I'm exhausted.
Holly Kennedy: Do you think we'll ever see dad again?
Patricia: No sweetheart, never. So you have to stop waiting.
Gerry: Oh, no, I don't know what I said.
Holly: You said it. You know you said it.
Gerry: I don't know what I said... But I didn't mean it.
Holly: Yes you did. You mean everything you say.
Gerry: Sometimes I mean nothing when I say something.
Holly: Something is never nothing. It's always something.
Gerry: Most of what I say is nothing. It's just something to say.
Holly: No. Men say it's just something to say in order to get away with saying something... But they know they're saying something everytime they say it.
Gerry: Say what? What did I say?
Holly: You said at my mother's, you would have a baby, but that I'm not ready. TO MY MOTHER! You might as well have said I'm a lesbian!
Leprechaun: Are you Holly Kennedy?
Holly: If I am will you sing at me?
Holly: No, I'm not.
Leprechaun: Please don't make this an issue. I gotta sing and deliver a letter.
Holly: A letter? What's the song?
Leprechaun: 'Yah Mo Be There'.
Holly: Oh please don't. Just give me the letter.
Leprechaun: I could get reported!
Holly: By who? The leprechaun union?
Leprechaun: You know, I was in an off-Broadway play with Al god damn Pacino. I don't need this shit. Want the balloons?
