    • Georgia: Hey. So, he actually got married. (pointing to Richard)
      Ally: He did an hour ago, and he's still married.

    • Richard: I think, uh, one of the reason I wanted to get married today is there's a risk Ally might not make it back in June. I was unwilling to assume that risk. (To Ally) Ally, the Biscuit said that my marrying Lisa today was worthy of you. I would agree. Without your influence I don't think I would be open to the... well, the insanity that just causes me to go with what I feel. And I know what I feel. I love you Lisa. And I'm betting on that love, as new as it is.

    • Ally: Wait, wait, wait. You two are... getting married?
      Lisa: You know what they say Ally, after the age of thirty we have better chance to be struck by a lightning...

    • Ally: You know Richard I don't have any time.

      Ally: (angry) Maddie is cracking up!
      Richard: It could be genetic.

      Ally: Oh, no. (to the dancing baby) What, what, you think you're funny? No, no, no, no! (to half-naked Rudy Gulliani) And you, it's not your moment, OK? (to Hillary Clinton) And you, you're not even from New York! (Hillary makes an angry face as Bill laughs.)

    • John: This is ridiculous.
      Reverend: The harness keeps me from falling; the tug wakes me up. So I won't miss a bit!
      John: Am I the best man or the designated rope tugger?

    • Reverend: Not to worry. The robe will cover the harness. If I should black out, just give it a quick short tip up.
