    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Ally: With John, it's not about winning the moment. It's about winning the day.

      • Richard: (to Billy and Georgia) Having a child -- it's a selfish thing. Couples don't walk around wanting to give life. They say, 'we want a child.' We want, we want. It's a selfish thing. Not that it's not a good selfish, but it's selfish. Don't punish yourselves for not wanting to celebrate your greed here.

      • Georgia: (to Billy) It's one thing to bring a child into the world, but... our world?

      • Ally: (to Billy) I am happy for you. It's just that when-- when you left, back then, I-- I prayed to myself, well, at least let me be married first. And if not, at least, let me have children first. And if not, at least, let me die first!

      • Renée: I'm sorry I doubted you.
        John: You will again.
        Renée: (turns to Ally) Thank you.
        Ally: I didn't do anything really, except you know, sleep with a witness or two.
        Renée: Thank you.
