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.
Anne: I want to break up with you.
Noah: [to Emma] I’m breaking up with you.
Peter: [hears Emma crying on the stairs] Hello? Is everything okay? You have mascara all over your whole face.
Emma: You actually have like a piece of toilet paper on your face.
Peter: [wipes his face] Oh. Do I really?
Emma: Other side. There. Yeah.
Peter: I just got dumped.
Emma: Oh, me too.
Peter: What about this? Whenever we’re feeling like we just can’t take it anymore, let’s call each other.
Emma: We’re each other’s Sadness Sisters.
Peter: Well, Sadness Sisters sounds like you’re Diane Keaton and I’m Meryl Streep, and we’re in a Broadway play. But, I like it. Yeah!
Emma: That’s a great cast. You should cast plays.
Emma: [looking at Noah’s Instagram photos with Ginny] Oh, my God. Look at her with my boyfriend. This is bad.
Emma: [referring to Noah] He was the love of my life.
Peter: Anne is the love of mine.
Emma: And I’m not so sure that they’re going to realize it. Not with these shiny new people around.
Peter: What are we supposed to do?
Emma: We have to break them up!
Peter: That’s crazy. We can’t do that. How would we do that?
Emma: [to Peter] I will seduce Anne’s boyfriend. You will friendship seduce Noah.
Emma: Am I doing this right? It’s so wet.
Logan: You just take your two fingers, let it drip out.
Emma: Oh, thank you.
Anne: I don’t think we’ve met. Hi.
Peter: What about your ex?
Noah: Really funny.
Peter: Was she funny?
Noah: Pop that shirt off.
Peter: I’d rather not.
Noah: I’ll tell you what. I’ll take mine off too.
Peter: That’s not going to help me at all.
Emma: Can I tell you a little secret about being an adult? We’re all just pretending that we know what we’re doing, and we’re hoping that don’t screw it up.
Noah: [as they’re running] Your stamina’s really improved.
Peter: It’s the drugs!
Emma: I find you both incredibly attractive.
Logan: Oh. Yeah.
Peter: Look at you. Good work.
Emma: Yeah, man. I’m a psycho.
Emma: You are somebody that a person could fall very deeply in love with. But it’s more like slowly, over five or six months.
Emma: Or like a year. Two years, tops.
Peter: Do you realize the number’s going up?
