Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"I've always had a thing for happy endings; I don't know why. You know the movies where the couple falls in love, gets married, has kids, then fifty or sixty years later, one of them dies, and two or three days later the other one dies. Okay, so that's not a great example of a happy ending. I mean two people are dead. But, for some reason I thought Katie and I would be that couple. Not that we would be dead, I mean, but that we would go on forever."
- Ben Jordan (Bruce Willis) to the camera in the opening scene
"At what point does a spoon start to become only a spoon'" - Katie Jordan (Michelle Pfeiffer) to the camera
"I've always thought the loudest silences were the ones after a fight, the ones where you go over all the things you said in your head, all the things you said wrong."
- Katie in voice-over
"Then you discover you can't french kiss the guy who puts the new roll of toilet paper on top of the old used-up roll instead of moving it the extra two inches. What' Does he not see it' Does he not see it' I'm telling you, marriage is the Jack Kevorkian of romances."
- Rachel (Rita Wilson)
