  • Quotes

    • Declan: We don't always gather for something dyre. We gather to teach, to pass on what we know, what we believe, to celebrate, to sing songs, to spend time with the people that we enjoy...
      Looks at Emma
      Declan: ...and to be family.

    • Declan: Listen, I'm about to start a class, but you're more than welcome to stay, if you...of course, last time we had an earthquake, and my lectures don't get much more exciting than that.
      Emma: You know, Declan, it's not your lectures I find exciting.
      Declan: You do? Er, they're not?

    • Declan: What if the 29th really is important? Not in the way that you think, but...maybe it's more of a beginning than an end, you know? Nobody knows when the world is going to end, Bob, but we've got to prepare like it could happen at any second; get out there and spend time with people that you love. Make the most out of every second that you've got, you know? When's the last time you and your family had fun? Just got away?

    • Emma: You believe that the world is going to come to an end... three days from now?
      Bob: Like I said, it's my belief.
      Miranda: He's what my grandma used to call "nutsy-cuckoo".

    • (Emma appears on TV)
      Miranda: There's your girlfriend.
      Declan turns to look at her
      Declan: (defensively) She's not my girlfriend...
      (Miranda looks at Peggy)
      Declan: I took her out to dinner...a couple of times.

    • Declan: I really enjoyed myself last night.
      Emma: You did?
      Declan: Mm-hmm.
      Emma: Me too.
      Declan: Yeah?
      Emma: Yeah. I've never had a date take me to the batting cage before.
      Declan: With your swing, I'm surprised.
