Monica: (in an interview segment) Nothing can bring you closer then going through stressful situation and loving it. We had fights, but we never got nasty or called each other names.
Monica: (Monica's personal quote) Right in the thick of love.
Monica: (in an interview segment regarding her husband Joseph) What I really took away from all this is how much he supported me. Joseph really is my rock and I could not have gotten through this without him.
Monica: (in an interview segment) Oh my gosh, we, this experience not only getting to travel the world and doing this with Joseph made us just, we're already best friends, and now I mean, he is my everything. We've experienced this together and how do you go on through life when you've experienced this together without each other. We've done this together, we can do anything.
Monica: (regarding her hero) My daddy for living a life where he never met a stranger and dying with never knowing an enemy. My boyfriend Joseph Meadows for being there for me through the good and the bad, and kicking ass in a race around the world.
Monica: (in an interview segment) There's always that fear that someone is just going to come racing past you and that fear makes you really emotional.
Monica: (having trouble pronouncing the Italian places while exploring Italy) I just murdered all those words.
Monica: (in an interview segment) I'll use the dumb blonde and the ditz to my advantage because I am not stupid.
Monica: I'm filthy... and I love it.
