  • Quotes

    • Willie (Capt. Sellars): Excuse me, where is your son?
      Phoebe: He couldn't be very far, could he?
      Willie: You must not allow him to run wild and bother the other passengers, the paying passengers.
      Phoebe: He is a little boy, he must explore.
      Willie: No, he must sit down. There are rules you know.
      Phoebe: Now you sound like my husband.
      Willie: Must be a very sensible man.
      Phoebe: Oh he is, terribly. That's why he's about to be my ex-husband. D'accord!

    • (on her secret to long life)
      Phoebe: Love wisely and with abandon.

    • Mr. Smith: Dogs are divinely designated as man's best friend.

      (closing soliloquy)
      Mr. Smith: Does the sun forget you when it goes away? No, because its light is reflected on the moon to remind us we're never alone. Tomorrow always comes bringing us the promise of a new day. And what is that promise? A new life, another chance to love our families, our neighbors, the earth, the sky and dogs named Willie.

    • Don't tell me, God is your Co-Pilot
      This is a takeoff on the title of the 1945 film God Is My Co-Pilot in which Dennis Morgan stars as Col. Robert Lee Scott, a man who, for his entire life, dreamed of being a fighter pilot. The film is based on Scott's autobiography of the same name.
