- When you look at me, do you see your mom?
- [After kissing] Don't say anything, you'll ruin it.
- Honestly, if you're not willing to sound stupid you don't deserve to be in love.
- First of all, why would I get myself mixed up with a guy who I know first hand would jump into an airplane bathroom with the first girl that comes a-knocking?
- Emily, I'm flat broke. I don't have a job. I don't have a plan. And I know, I know I'm probably six years too late, but will you give me strike one back?
- [annoyed] Gabe the babe.
- The thing is, how can I be there for her if I don't even have my thing figured out? You know?
- Well, if it wasn't love, it was a lot like it.
- My brother's deaf, Em. I can go days without talking.
- God, Oliver! You are such a dick! C'mon, let's just start without him!
- Graham: [pointing to his son] You should get one.
- Oliver: That was the plan. Instead I'm almost 30, unemployed, and living with mom and dad.
- Graham: Oliver. This is your life. Right now. It doesn't wait for you to get back on your feet.
- Emily: This is your trip, it's happening right now
- [Takes Oliver's camera and takes a picture of her crotch]
- Oliver: [sarcastically] Oh Great! All the places I've traveled!
- Oliver: What's your stance on pancakes?
- Emily: I am pro-pancakes.
- There's nothing better than a great romance... to ruin a perfectly good friendship.
