Johnny learns that Liza is 08NOVA.
In the final scene where Johnny is talking with Liza and Johnny notices her sweater in the mirror, it's messed up. The writing on the sweater when reflected off the mirror should be in mirror image. It was not and Johnny was able to read it just fine
Goof: When Cliff demolishes Travis' car, he breaks both left-side front lights. When Travis looks for his car later, only one of the two lights is broken.
Liza: It's not what you think!
Johnny: So you're telling me you didn't send me IMs from a dead guy?
Liza: Eddie was murdered Johnny. And I know they did it. I saw them.
Johnny: Who did you see? Who did you see Liza?
Liza: Cliff and Greta.
Travis: I thought you were going around the block.
Cliff: Oh, I guess I lost track of time. A car like that it's easy to do. But I was really careful.
Johnny: The past is exactly that. It doesn't change the way I feel about you.
Greta: I'm tired of the lies Cliff. I can't do this anymore. I won't.
Mrs. Nolan: Tessy. We've known each other for years. Our boys are - were best friends. You don't have to censor yourself around me, I won't break.
(About Cliff driving the car)
Travis: Not a chance. This is - This is my baby.
Tess: And this is my baby. Make an effort.
Cliff: Come on, a quick spin around the block.
Tess: He's trying Travis. Now you have to give a little.
Cliff: Yeah Travis, you gotta give a little.
Liza: Maybe someone is trying to tell you something.
Johnny: Why me? Tell the cops. It's enough already. You know, it's already caused me to come to blows with Cliff, ruined any chance I had with Greta, the whole thing sucks. But anyways, enough with dead Eddie. Let's play.
Johnny: Let's just say that I've learned quickly that this place is for disfunctional and psychologically damaged.
Jessie Jo: Palm Springs is no different from any place else.
Johnny: Oh, okay. So you're saying I'd be getting IMs from a dead guy no matter where I'd live?
Johnny: (To Liza) You're 08NOVA?
Johnny: You can't make someone commit suicide Greta. Trust me.
Greta: The night before Eddie died, I slept with Cliff. It was just that one time, but it was the biggest mistake of my life and when Eddie found out, he killed himself. It's my fault. Johnny. It's my fault Eddie's dead.
Nikki: So, do you think this heap will make it back?
Cliff: Oh, barely.
Karen: I took a lot of photographs that trip.
Johnny: You wouldn't let us take any of you.
Karen: I was eaten alive by insects. I looked horrid, remember? I don't do camping.
Cliff: (Hits the car) So generous of Travis to lend me his baby (Hits it again) It's just a shame that that unfortunate man in his pick-up truck was changing lanes and side-swipped us. (Hits it again)
Nikki: I shoulda known you were up to something.
Cliff: Luckily nobody was hurt.
Nikki: What happened?
Nikki: What's the problem?
Cliff: I was sure I'd bust a rim on that spin.
Nikki: I'm not used to having nonalcoholic-related thrills.
Cliff: What about sex?
Nikki: Never had it. Sober.
Cliff: It's just as fun, trust me. If you wanna try it out sometime.
Nikki: Oh, is that why you called me? For the record, I'm a drunk, not a slut.
Cliff: Except when you're drunk.
Maria: (To Greta and Cliff) I know Eddie pulled away near the end, but he pulled away from us all. I hope you don't blame yourselves.
Cliff: How are you holding up Mrs. Nolan?
Mrs. Nolan: Well as can be expected.
Cliff: (To Greta) Would it make you feel better if you hit me again?
Cliff: So I heard the bad news about you and Johnny. Sorry it didn't work out.
Greta: I can tell you're weeping inside.
Cliff: As it happens, I was rooting for you two. I was on the edge of my seat. Will they, won't they. Oh, the suspense!
Johnny: I'm willing to help you. I'll be your friend, whatever you need, but not until you help yourself. Until then, we're just both wasting our time.
Johnny: How many times you think you can apologize and have it still mean something?
Nikki: I'm sober.
Johnny: Today? Do you want a medal?
Nikki: I was afraid to try your house.
Johnny: Smart move. I don't think you'd be very welcome.
(Washing his car)
Travis: Wanna help?
Cliff: Wanna let me drive it?
Johnny: Mom, Mom, he died in my room!
Johnny: Forget it! I screwed up. That's the point! I am screwed up. Do you understand that?
Cliff: Nikki, how does one get in touch with you? If, say, for the sake of flirtation, one wanted to.
Cliff: Travis, I'm being sincere. Kay, I know you don't recognize it, having never seen it from me before, but this is genuine. Truly.
Travis: Okay. Great. So I'll just stay for the rest of my life. Maxing out Mommy's credit cards. Doing her in the next room. Maybe – maybe we'll have a couple kids. Kinda seal the deal, lock me in. Take this ride to the last stop.
Nikki: I'm avoiding calling his house. I'm sure you've heard, being his sponsor and all.
Jessie Jo: Being his sponsor, I'm sure you know that what's said between sponsor and sponsee is private.
Nikki: Right. So I guess asking if he's still mad at me is a waste of time?
Jessie Jo: Bingo.
Johnny: I did hear you haven't really been around.
Mrs. Nolan: I thought it would be too hard to go back. The truth is, it's no easier staying away.
Johnny: I get that there's something you think you can't tell me, but it's like you're walking around with this dark cloud over your head and it's never gonna go away no matter what we are.
Jessie Jo: Think of all this crap as a great big, shiny neon drink. Just say no. No no no.
Cliff: (About Eddie) His mom is still around here.
Johnny: In Palm Springs?
Cliff: Yeah. I haven't seen her in like forever. She took it pretty hard. Heard she never leaves her house anymore. Sad, huh?
Cliff: Since we're making amends, I should say, if I caused any friction or interference in the epic love story that is Johnny and Greta, I am sorry.
Johnny: Greta and me? It's not gonna happen.
Cliff: Was it those E-Mails that I didn't send you?
Cliff: (To Tess) What I want is for my mother to see through the transparency of her mid-life dilemma and realize that she is better than her choice in men.
Cliff: Oh Travis, no need to dress for breakfast.
Tess: Sweetie, maybe you better put something on.
Travis: I thought you liked me in less.
Tess: Good morning sugar bear. Wow, you're up early.
Cliff: Yeah, its hard to sleep with the Superbowl going on in the next room.
Liza: I like science because it does what its supposed to. True is true and false is false.
Nikki: You scare me.
Cliff: Isn't that the appeal?
Nikki: What am I doing here? Why did you call me?
Cliff: What can I say? I'm attracted to the hopelessly reckless. Why did you say yes?
Nikki: Because I'm attracted to the pathologically insane.
Travis: Where the hell did you get a gun?
Tess: I'm from Texas, you moron, we get a gun before we can walk.
Nikki: You sober people don't know when to quit!
Jesse Jo: 'You sober people don't know when to quit!' Yeah, I'll stew on that one.
