  • Quotes

    • Christian: I was given Kerry, and I said, 'What do you like?' and she said, 'I don't like print, I don't like color, I would never wear a dress, I would never wear a skirt, I don't like to show my arms, and I wear black every day with a pair of jeans.' So I got very scared, and I was like, 'Okay...' because she doesn't like anything!

    • Laura (Steve's client): I wish you well.
      Steven: I will need your well wishes. (laughing) You might want to consider going back to church.

  • Allusions

    • Kit: (trying on the wedding dress) I kind of feel like The Corpse Bride.
      The Corpse Bride is a stop-motion animated movie in which a young engaged man is claimed by a girl that died on her wedding day to be her new husband.
