  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (13)

    • Sophie: So you guys have all known each other forever. Annabelle: Gideon and I met the first day of pre-kindergarten. Gideon: Yeah our shrinks introduced us. We’ve all known each other since the womb once you enter all this you can never leave. It’s like the Mafia.

    • Nicholas: My dad doesn't love my mom. He married her for her money. Sophie: My dad dumped my mom for my sister's best friend. Nicholas: And we have a winner!

    • Sophie: it doesn’t feel like home and where I’m from doesn’t either. It’s weird like I’ve got no home. Now I sound like a pathetic character from a Dickens’s novel. Gideon: I for one am very glad you came. Your mere presence has doubled the number of girls who talk to me. And I was thinking we could be friends that way you wouldn’t have to miss me cause I’m right here.

    • Nicholas: (introduces himself) Nicholas Fiskes of the New York Fiskes. Sophie: I’m Sophie Kerr of the New Mexico Kerr’s. Perhaps you’ve heard of us. Our portfolio consists of a 2002 VW compact and a bust of Sunny Rockman. Nicholas: Don’t mistake pretension for what is, just old fashion inbreeding.

    • Sophie: This place is big. Lynn: Colossal. Sophie: We’re not in New Mexico anymore.

    Allusions (3)

    • The Wizard of Oz Sophie: We’re not in New Mexico anymore. Sophie's line alludes to the line Dorothy said about arriving in Oz in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.

    • Lynn: (to Paisley) What did Polly Mellon say? “Less is more”. Polly Mellon was the fashion reporter for the New York Times.

    • Vincent Van Gogh Gideon: Calm down, I'm not ready to start chopping off any ears yet. Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) was an extremely important artist of the 19th century. He was very good friends with another famous painter, Paul Gauguin. In 1888, after having a fight with Gauguin, Van Gogh returned home and took a razor to his own ear and cut downward so that the lower part of his left ear was gone. He then went and gave it to a prostitute.
