We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Beau’s Mother: I am so sorry for what your daddy passed down to you. But I wanted a child, the greatest gift of my life.
Beau: I’m visiting my mother tomorrow.
Beau’s Mother: [as Beau listens to her message] Hi, carrot. It’s mom. I’m just calling to say that I’m so, so, so excited to see you tomorrow. You’re my angel, and I love you. Okay, I love you. Okay. Bye, sweetie. I love you.
Beau’s Mother: Are you at the airport?
Beau: I’m on my way. I just, it’s not safe, is it? What do you think I should do?
Beau’s Mother: I’m sure you’ll do the right thing, sweetheart.
Roger: [as Beau becomes conscious] Welcome back.
Grace: I hit you with my car.
Grace: I know.
Beau: What? What is this?
Roger: That’s my little assistant health monitor.
Roger: Feeling sad about going home, Beau? Must feel totally unreal.
Beau: I’m supposed to be leaving.
Roger: I don’t know if that’s going to happen.
Beau: Why did you lie to me?
Angel: Do you want the truth now?
Angel: You will walk many miles. Dozens will become hundreds. Hundreds will become thousands. Your adventures will continue for years and years.
Beau: I just need to get home.
Angel: I know.
Grace: Rip him apart!
