  • Quotes (13)

    • (Mary and Lucy are driving around looking for Ruthie, thinking she knows the truth about Matt and Sarah) Mary: Oh, I know where Ruthie is. Lucy: Great, where? Mary: What day is it? Lucy: Monday. Mary: And where does Ruthie go on Monday? Lucy: School...and HELLO, where are we supposed to be?! Mary: School. Now, aren't you glad we have the same schedules?

    • Matt: (after Ruthie finds out that Matt got married). Could you Ruthie? Could you keep it a secret that you know we got married last night? Could you just forget and never say anything? I mean, because that's a terribly big secret for a little girl to keep for the rest of her life and I don't even know if I should ask you. Ruthie: You can ask me anything, horse or no horse. You're my brother and this is a good secret, the best secret I've ever heard. And we both know I know them all. I can do it. As God as my witness, I will never, ever tell this secret to anyone, cause I owe it to you for being my big brother for 11 years. I love you. I respect you. You have my word of honor. This stays with me.

    • Annie: You don't really think they did get married last night and maybe they're just telling us they're engaged to kind of get us use to the idea? Eric: It's impossible. You know, I like that. I like that idea a lot. So I'm going with married. They're already married.

    • Sarah: Ever been to a Jewish wedding? Matt: Sarah's father's a rabbi. Eric: Life's funny, isn't it. Matt's marrying a Jewish girl. Who would've thought?

    • Lucy: So, when's the big day? Matt: We were thinking really soon. Sarah: May-June. Mary: This May-June? Matt: Or maybe sooner.
