  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Marin: Hey, Elmo. Patrick and I were just discussing movie magic. There's just something about sitting down in a dark theater that lets you escape the reality of your own life and live in the fantasy of someone else's story but what if the cameras were turned on you? In the movie of your life, do you like what you see?

    • Cash: Since when did you become a hockey fan?
      Marin: Since Broadway moved 3,000 miles away.

    • Jack: Have you been smoking?
      Marin: Oh no, but I was briefly on fire.

    • Ivan: (to Annie) You remind me of my country. Beautiful face, but with a complicated history.

    • Marin: We all love to lose ourselves in a good movie. When I was a girl, I loved The Wizard of Oz. Especially the moment when Dorothy opens the door into that fantastic world. But once Dorothy appreciated how bright and beautiful everything was, she realized she had a bit of a mess on her hands. One of the classic examples of "Be careful what you wish for." Spend five minutes in a fantasy and you might just find yourself wish for your old life back. We miss what's right in front of us when we're busy looking over the rainbow. But sometimes it takes stepping into someone else's world to realize how much you love the life you have. Because no matter how magical the movies are, there is no place like home.

  • Allusions

    • Area Codes 917 and 646

      Annie: Jack, no! A 646, maybe, but a 917? That's vintage, that's class, that's New York City.
      The original area code for land lines in New York City/Manhattan was 212. In the 90s, the 917 area code was overlaid in the same area, meaning new numbers, mostly cell phones, were given the 917 area code. In 1999, area code 646 was added. This is why Annie calls 917 vintage. If someone has a 917 area code, it is believed to be more elite because a person had a cell phone before the big wave of technology.
