  • I love the way this country smells. I'll never forget it. It's kind of spicy.
  • I'm gonna go pray at another thing.
  • Fuck the itinerary.
  • Well, I'm not crazy about the part where I start screaming at the mechanic. That never happened.


  • I'll take the bottom bunk because I'm the oldest and my ankle's fractured.
  • I tried my hardest. I don't know what else to do.
  • Dad's bags aren't gonna make it!


  • [While Francis and Peter are fighting] Stop including me!
  • You're bleeding like crazy!
  • Did you get maced too?


  • We haven't located us yet.
  • Because I have alopecia.


  • Maybe we could express ourselves more fully when we say it without words.
  • I told you not to come here.
  • I live here. These people need me.
  • Yes, the past happened. But it's over, isn't it?


Jack: Wouldn't it be great if we heard a train go by in the distance?
Peter: Not really.
Francis: It'd probably be annoying.

Jack: What did he say?
Peter: He said the train is lost.
Jack: How can a train be lost? It's on rails.

Jack: He's gonna have a kid in six weeks.
Francis: Who?
Jack: Him. Rubby. He doesn't want you to know.
Francis: Rubby?
Jack: Yeah, you know, Rubby. [Jack imitates Peter's recurrent action of rubbing his temples to relieve his headaches]
Francis: [Laughs]

Francis: You don't love me!
Peter: Yes I do!
Jack: I love you too but I'm gonna mace you in the face!

Jack: You wanna read a short story I wrote in France?
Francis: How long is it?
Jack: What?
Francis: How long is it?
Jack: How long is it? Never mind, forget it.
