Beth: I don’t know if I even believe in that anymore. The right guy. The perfect guy. The one. I’ve lost faith in “the”.

Jennifer: How do you feel about “a” and “an”?

Beth: Indifferent.

Jennifer: So you’re considering a life without articles?

Beth: And true love.

“…I want to believe that, despite all evidence to the contrary, it is possible for anyone to find that one special person.”

“…wasn’t reality bound to be disappointing?”

“The experience might have been an epic disaster, but it was still… an experience.”

“According to everyone besides me, if my brother and I tag along on their vacation, it won’t be as “romantic.” I don’t see what’s so “romantic” about spending a week in a tropical paradise with your spouse whom you’ve already seen almost everyday for the past quarter century. I can’t imagine anyone ever wanting to be alone with me that much.”
