(Back to 2011) Jamie: You see Mabel, sweetheart, boys and girls are different, girls have (pause) umm boys have (pause) girls and boys ummm (pause) honey. Paul: See Mabel... when a man... loves a woman, he can't keep his mind on nothing else. He shows the world for the good things he found. If she is bad, he can't see it. She can't do no wrong. Jamie: Honey. Paul: There's get back to you. (Stand up and leave)

    • Jamie: There are lots of things I want, but only one that I need. And if you ever left me, I would find you, and I would bring you home, because you would be wrong.

    Notes (5)

    • The scenes in which future Mabel appears and narrates her childhood resemble the narrations made by the character of Alvy Singer in Woody Allen's Annie Hall. As a narrator, Mabel talks to the public directly, and tells many events of her childhood and her parents in New York, just like Alvy does in Annie Hall.
