  • Quotes

    • John: So, what do you want to do first, get married or go bowling?
      Suzanne: Bowling first. That way, if the marriage doesn't work, it won't screw up my game.

    • John: In my mind, it's all connected. You get married, you have kids, you grow old and then you die. Somehow to me, if you didn't get married, you wouldn't die.

    • Mrs. Carruthers: We've always tried to instill in our daughter the good grace to conceal virtually everything from us.
      Alex: She hasn't told you anything?
      Mr. Carruthers: Not since 1971.

    • Bobby: Hey, you got rid of her, that's great.
      John: No, we're staying married.
      Bobby: Congratulations, she's a wonderful girl.

    • Alex (after reading Suzanne's "Dear John" letter to John): That's a nice letter. I read it nicely.
