  • Quotes

    • (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.

    • Simon: (about Matt's engagement) This makes what I've done all year look sane.
      Mary: I wonder if she knows the history of engagements in this family?

    • Lucy: Wife?
      Matt: Wife-to-be.
      Eric: You're engaged?
      Matt: Yes, we are.
      Annie: Then congratulations, son. I'm very happy for you.

    • Sarah: What he's try to say is...we're engaged...we went out. We fell in love. We wanted to get married.
      Matt: I know what you are thinking. You're thinking we don't know each other, and when we get to know each other then we might change our minds, but...we're not going to change our minds. I want to be married to Sarah and I really am in love with her. She's a wonderful woman and I am happy we found each other. I've been, um...really lonely. Even in my past relationships, I felt lonely. But I don't feel lonely anymore. Sarah and I have a lot in common, and most of what we have in common is that we both love our families., and we want to be a family. A family that loves and respects each other as much as I respect and love all of you. And I hope you respect our decision because this is my life. And this is what I want.

    • Mary: He's married, you know he's married.
      Lucy: I know he stayed out all night, but none of us know if he's married.

    • Eric: He better have not been at a hotel, or I really will forbid him from going out with this Sarah again.
      Robbie: I'm sorry. It's just that he's a little old to...(Eric gives a mean face) then again he does live under your roof.
      Eric: Yes, he does.
      Robbie: Of course, he's leaving soon to go off to medical school and when he does, you're gonna have a hard time trying to control what he can and can't do.

    • Annie: He is over 21. Matt probably thinks he doesn't have to call.
      Eric: Well, to tell you the truth, I don't want him to call because I'm worried what it might be.
      Annie: I'm sure he's fine.

    • Matt: (answering the phone) Mr. and Mrs. Matt Camden. Hello?
      Ruthie: I don't believe it! You really are stupider than Mary!
      Matt: Ruthie?
      Ruthie: Oh! You got married!?
      Matt: Shhh!
      Ruthie: Don't you shush me! I just missed your wedding and I don't even know the bride!
      Matt: Ruthie, I love you. And I know you won't tell anyone because you know how important this is to me. Good night, Ruthie. I'll see you tomorrow.
      Ruthie: Good night, and Matt...I love you too. Congratulations.

    • Sarah: I love you.
      Matt: And I love you... always and forever.
