Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Marin's dark green lace blouse was designed by Elie Tahari.

    • If Donna is Jack's mother, why would he have her business card laying around and not have her number written in his phone book? And why would she not have known that Jack was gone for nine months and called him? And why would she say that Donna was calling in her message instead of Mom?

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Jerome: (to Mary Alice) I would never forget you especially if we were to... write letters.

    • Mai: (to Mary Alice) Subtlety is for suckers.

    • Dick: Every woman's a snooper (Celia glares at him) because every man's a liar.

    • Mary Alice: ...I'm feeling very irregular.
      Jerome: I'm sorry to hear that.

    • Marin: Life would be so good if we could just freeze moments in time, the time when we were happy, when we knew we were loved. But, we can't. And so instead, we find ourselves retracing footsteps that may have washed away. We fight to remember our connections even as time wipes our slate clean. And we strive to make new connections that we hope time will indulge. When communication fails, words remain behind, proof that we were here, that we mattered, that someone cared. In the end, the past may be all we have.

    • Annie: You know how they say, "absence makes the heart grow fonder." Well, what if absence also makes the heart go away.
      Marin: I can relate to that.
      Annie: I have gone through all of Patrick's stuff to make him remember, to remember me. But what if I haven't known him long enough to matter?
      Marin: Annie, it doesn't matter how long you've known a person. You can still matter to them, can't you?

    • Marin: (to radio show audience) How much time does it take to make a difference in someone's life? Is a chance meeting enough? Six months? A decade? Shakespeare said he wrote to be immortal. Writers hope their written word will help keep their memory alive. But books can be lost, words erased, stories changed. With all those variables working against you, how can you ever know you've made an impact?

    • Sara: So, you and Jack?
      Marin: Yes?
      Sara: How'd you leave it?
      Marin: Well, we kissed goodbye on the dock. He turned the plane around just to kiss me.
      Sara: You must be one hell of a kisser.
      Marin: Oh, you're one to talk. You kiss a man and he leaves the church.
