Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.


Candace: I'm just saying, Jordan's good people, you should get to know her.
Robyn: What's to know? She's career-obsessed and lives on her BlackBerry.
Candace: True, but she's not some ideal from a piece of fiction. Now, her man, on the other hand, is iconic. Mmm. If I went that way, that's what I'd get. A tall, vanilla swagger latte. I like, I like, I like.

Harper: Brian McDaniels... I like to ski in Vermont. I like to date chocolate girls.
Jordan: Shut up, Harper.

Oh, I see, young people in love are never hungry.


[drinking a toast] Well, here's to the merry-go-round.

Ellie Andrews

We'll get on a merry-go-round and never get off. Promise me we'll never get off.

Ellie Andrews

Oscar Shapeley: Believe you me!
Ellie Andrews: Believe you me, you bore me to distraction.

Peter Warne: Just keep your eye on that thumb.
Ellie Andrews: Still got my eye on the thumb. Peter Warne: Something must have happened. I'll try number 2.
Ellie Andrews: Well, wake me up when you get to 100.

That's the way things go

Joe Gordon

You're a sucker to go through with this. That guy Warne is OK. He didn't want the reward. All he asked for was $39.60, what he spent on you. Said it was a matter of principle. You took him for a ride. He loves you, Ellie. He told me so. You don't want to be married to a mug like Westley; I can buy him off for a pot of gold. And you can make an old man happy and you won't do so bad for yourself. If you change your mind, your car's waiting at the back gate.

Alexander Andrews

I want to see what love looks like when it's triumphant. I haven't had a good laugh in a week.

Peter Warne

You know, I had you pegged right from the jump. Just a spoiled brat of a rich father. The only way you get anything is to buy it, isn't it? You're in a jam and all you can think of is your money. It never fails, does it? Ever hear of the word humility? No, you wouldn't. I guess it would never occur to you to just say, 'Please mister, I'm in trouble, will you help me?' No, that would bring you down off your high horse for a minute. Well, let me tell you something, maybe it will take a load off your mind. You don't have to worry about me. I'm not interested in your money or your problem. You, King Westley, your father. You're all a lot of hooey to me!
