    • Ally: How do you do that? Care about somebody within minutes of meeting them?
      Victor: Saves time, I guess.

    • Claire Otoms: I was only trying to help!
      Richard: I understand, I understand, but if I could make one small request? DON'T HELP!!

    • Ally: Okay, here's the thing about me - I loved this guy named Billy, and he died, and then I loved this guy named Larry even more, and he left. And one of the reasons he left me, the biggest, is his son, and his need to be in Detroit. And the truth is, I never really got it. The bottom line is the little bastard walked out on me. But in the last month, I can finally say, Okay, I get it. I still stick pins in my little Larry doll, but I get it.

    • Ally: Thank you, thank you. I'm always saying thank you - I'm beginning to sound like my mother! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    • Maddie: She's anus about these kinds of things!
      Ally: I think you mean anal.

  • Allusions

    • Claire Otoms: I don't just want to help Richard, I want to help all those other islands out there!

      Claire is referring to the popular saying, "No man is an island," meaning no one can truly isolate themselves, physically or emotionally, from the rest of the world no matter how hard they try.
