OUR RATING: ★★☆☆☆
Amazon Prime romantic comedy directed by Daryl Wein. Something From Tiffany’s (2022) centers on Rachel and Gary (Zoey Deutch and Ray Nicholson), who are happy enough, but not quite ready for that big commitment, and Ethan and Vanessa (Kendrick Sampson and Shay Mitchell), who are the perfect picture and are just about to make it official. When a simple mix-up of gifts causes all of their paths to cross, it sets off a series of twists and unexpected discoveries that lead them where they’re truly meant to be. Because love, like life, is full of surprises.
Our Favorite Quotes:'Don't think so much about the mess. Focus on the outcome.' - Ethan Greene (Something From Tiffany's) Click To Tweet
Daisy: [referring to the ring] That is the one.
Tiffany Saleswoman: You have good taste, Daisy.
Daisy: Yes, I do.
Ethan Greene: [to the store assistant] You heard the boss.
Terri Blake: Are you talking to your fish again?
Rachel Meyer: No. I’m talking to my soup.
Rachel Meyer: [referring to her first restaurant] I will always love our firstborn. Even if that one critic did say the ambiance reminded him of a gas station. I personally like gas stations. They have really good snacks.
Terri Blake: God, you have such a good attitude. It’s terrifying.
Terri Blake: It’s amazing what a mess you’re capable of making. It looks like you taught a cooking class to a bunch of toddlers.
Rachel Meyer: Yeah, that’s the vibe I was going for.
Terri Blake: You can bribe people with cannoli. Good to know.
Rachel Meyer: [referring to her outfit] It’s a lot. But I’m thinking it’s sort of giving off a J.Lo picking up her kids from school on the way to the Grammys vibe.
Daisy: Are you and Gary married?
Rachel Meyer: No. No. We’re…
Daisy: We’re best friends.
Rachel Meyer: Well…
Daisy: Are you a stripper?
Rachel Meyer: What?
Rachel Meyer: I’m losing it. I should go get some sleep, put on human people clothes. I’m wearing heels in a hospital. That is what I’m doing. I got to go.

Ethan Greene: [after Rachel tells him about her bakery] Hold on now. Like you just met the biggest consumer of bread in America.
Rachel Meyer: Ah, no way.
Ethan Greene: Yeah.
Rachel Meyer: That’s you? I’ve been dying to meet you for years.
Rachel Meyer: [referring to Gary’s present box] What if it is what we think it is? I don’t know if I’m ready for this. What do I do?
Terri Blake: I mean, hey, that would be more surprising than him having a secret love child, or something, right?
Sophia: He has a secret love child?
Terri Blake: And the box? Are we just glazing over that now?
Rachel Meyer: No, no, no. It’s just, the thing is, right, we don’t know for sure like that it’s a ring, right? They sell lots of things at Tiffany’s. Pens. They sell pens. And you know what? Actually, one time, I saw a yo-yo from there. It could be a yo-yo, Terri.
Terri Blake: Hell, if he got you a pen, or a yo-yo, girl, you got bigger problems.
Rachel Meyer: I don’t know. A Tiffany’s yo-yo sounds pretty cool to me.
Rachel Meyer: [as she’s pouring the drinks] You are my friend. You’re delicious, and you make me happy. We’re going to pour a little bit of you. And a little more of you.
Rachel Meyer: I have a small tendency of talking to my culinary creations.
Ethan Greene: I talk to myself all the time when I write. Well, mostly yell at myself, but same same.
'You know why it tastes so good? Because it was baked with love, not strategy.' - Rachel Meyer (Something From Tiffany's) Click To Tweet
Rachel Meyer: [referring to his late wife] What was she like, if you don’t mind me asking?
Ethan Greene: No. She was like a song. Like a song that you wanted to play over and over again.
Rachel Meyer: The risk of love is loss, right?
Ethan Greene: How did you decide that this is what you wanted to do though? Like to bake.
Rachel Meyer: It was never really like a firm decision. I just kept falling more and more in love with it. It’s like a meditation, it’s a love language all in one. It’s messy, but I just, I love that something beautiful always comes out of the mess.
Rachel Meyer: Oh, so there was a first?
Ethan Greene: Yeah. It was a disaster. The Titanic of books, yeah.
Rachel Meyer: I’m sure it wasn’t that bad.
Ethan Greene: Well, nobody died from it.
Rachel Meyer: [to Ethan] You know, Gillini was not my first go-around. My first go-around, my first restaurant was a big flop. Huge. Embarrassing. Disastrous. Bankrupting. You get the point. If yours was the Titanic of books, mine was the 127 Hours of restaurants.
'You need to start doing things with your heart. Not your head.' - Rachel Meyer (Something From Tiffany's) Click To Tweet
Rachel Meyer: [referring to the cornetto] You know why it tastes so good? Because it was baked with love, not strategy.
Ethan Greene: And probably a s**t-ton of butter.
Rachel Meyer: Oh, yeah.
Rachel Meyer: [to Ethan] Maybe you need to start doing things with your heart. Not your head.
Rachel Meyer: [as she opens the box to reveal the engagement ring] I don’t know what to say.
Gary Wilson: Me neither.
Gary Wilson: You made me into a better artist. Into a better person. And I have you to thank for that. Because you encourage me, and you tell me that I can do more and be more. And you believe in me.
Rachel Meyer: I do.
Gary Wilson: So, will you?
Rachel Meyer: Yes.
Gary Wilson: [as he puts the ring on her finger] I’m sweating.
Terri Blake: [referring to Gary and the engagement ring] Did he rob a bank? He must have sold an organ or something. Did he kill somebody? You know, a lot of people been doing life insurance fraud. I’m not saying that’s what he did, but damn, that’s a big-a** ring.
'Not every relationship is that simple.' - Rachel Meyer (Something From Tiffany's) Click To Tweet
Sophia: Maybe instead of saving up for that ridiculous cappuccino maker we just had to have, you could buy your wife something nice.
Terri Blake: You love my latte art. I made your face last week, and you loved it. Remember?
Sophia: That was supposed to be me?
Terri Blake: Yeah.
Sophia: Oh, hell no.
Terri Blake: [referring to Rachel] She loves the romance, but not the fanfare.
Terri Blake: Hey, I’m excited too. But if I’m too genuine, my heart will explode and I’ll die, so. Can’t do it.
Sophia: I can’t with you.
Rachel Meyer: Ethan’s the one who helped Gary when he got hit. I met him at the hospital. And then he came by the stall.
Terri Blake: And then you two just went on a romantic stroll down the East River alone?
Rachel Meyer: Oh, my God. Terri. I’m not doing this with you. We were just killing time. He lives in LA. I’m never going to see him again. So, whatever!
'I think you got to hold on to the good. And I think you got to love people when you can, because there is no guarantee that they'll be here tomorrow.' - Rachel Meyer (Something From Tiffany's) Click To Tweet
Daisy: [to Ethan] You got to go get the ring back.
Terri Blake: [to Ethan, referring to his eyes] You’re quite the detective, aren’t you? And fine as hell too. What are those, hazel?
Rachel Meyer: Terri. Oh, my God. Terri!
Terri Blake: Huh? What?
Ethan Greene: [referring to engagement ring] That looks beautiful on you.
Rachel Meyer: Thank you. Just such a big gesture. It was very unlike Gary, but what a ring. It’s the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen in my life.
Rachel Meyer: [to Ethan, referring to Gary] When I get frustrated that he’s late, or misses dinner, or is wrapped up in his own stuff, or always on his phone, I remember that he’s the guy that went eight subway stops out of his way for me when he didn’t even know me. So, sorry. In the longest answer ever, yes, he is the kind of guy who would return five dollars.
Ethan Greene: [referring to his book] Ah, well, I hope I write it.
Rachel Meyer: What do you mean, you hope?
Ethan Greene: It’s a lot of procrastination mixed in with self-loathing. I’ve got a great therapist.
Rachel Meyer: You just got to go for it. I can’t wait to be walking by a bookstore one day and see it in the window.
Ethan Greene: [to Rachel] I hope everything works out for you. No matter what happens, I want you to know that I mean that sincerely.
Ethan Greene: I want my ring back.
Gary Wilson: What ring?
Ethan Greene: The ring that was supposed to be on my girlfriend’s hand right now, but I saw Rachel wearing it last night.
Gary Wilson: You saw Rachel last night?
Ethan Greene: You give me my ring back, I’ll give you your earrings back. No harm, no foul.
Gary Wilson: I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Ethan Greene: Yes, you do. You can’t be serious about letting her keep it. Not telling her?
Gary Wilson: Stay away from my fiancée. You lost something, it’s not my problem.
Terri Blake: [referring to Rachel] What did you do?
Gary Wilson: What do you mean?
Terri Blake: I mean she’s on her third batch of rye.
Gary Wilson: Well, it is a bread store.
Terri Blake: We don’t need that much rye. That’s her thinking bread. What did you do?
Gary Wilson: I didn’t do anything. Today.
Gary Wilson: [after Rachel finds out that the engagement ring is Ethans] When I saw you open that ring box, it was the most obvious thing I’d ever seen.
Rachel Meyer: What was your plan though? What, were you going to wait until we were in a nursing home to tell me this story? What were you thinking? You gave me somebody else’s engagement ring. That’s crazy.
Rachel Meyer: What if there was no ring?
Gary Wilson: What do you mean?
Rachel Meyer: I’m giving it back. So I’m asking you right now, not half-concussed, no ring you have to hide behind. Like do you still want to marry me?
Gary Wilson: Yes. Of course I want to marry you. I see a future with us. If you just give me one more chance, I will be so much better. I promise you.
Daisy: Why can’t you just ask for the ring back?
Ethan Greene: It’s complicated, honey. Sometimes, when there’s a mix-up, you got to be careful of people’s feelings.
Daisy: What about your feelings?
Ethan Greene: [referring to Gary] He got my ring, I got his present.
Terri Blake: Wow. That is way worse than I thought.
Ethan Greene: [referring to Rachel] And I tried to tell her the other night, but I couldn’t. I just, I didn’t want to break her heart.
Rachel Meyer: Thank you for being exactly who you are through all of this. You’re a really, really good person.
Ethan Greene: I appreciate that.
Rachel Meyer: I just wanted to apologize myself. Gary’s going to reach out to you, obviously, give the ring back, and then we can all just move on.
Rachel Meyer: Terri, not every relationship is that simple.
Terri Blake: No one’s perfect. Hell, I used to have an eyebrow ring. Nobody’s talking about that. Always bringing up old stuff. What about Ethan? Look, I know something when I see something, and that wasn’t nothing.
Rachel Meyer: He just wanted his ring back. That’s it.
Rachel Meyer: You don’t turn your back on somebody because they don’t know how to tell you that a ring they could never afford just ended up in their lap. He has some work to do. Who doesn’t? I think you got to hold on to the good. And I think you got to love people when you can, because there is no guarantee that they’ll be here tomorrow. You know?
Terri Blake: [referring to Gary] Does that mean that I have to start being nice to him or…?
Rachel Meyer: Terri, I think people would be very confused if you did.
Terri Blake: I would be very confused if I did.
Ethan Greene: [after they find the ring baked inside Rachel’s bread] Vanessa will you marry me?
Vanessa: Yes. Yes! Oh, my gosh. This is why you’ve been acting so weird. We’ll have to get it sized when we go back to LA. This will never fit, but what a unique way to propose. It’s so original.
Rachel Meyer: Gary, this is not working. It’s just too hard. I’m not saying that it should be easy, but it shouldn’t be this hard. You keep digging these holes, and I keep throwing you rope, and I can’t do it anymore. I can’t do it anymore. I can’t.
Vanessa: Oh, hi. I’m Vanessa, Ethan’s fiancée.
Gary Wilson: There. See? He proposed to her. She got the ring, and everything can go back to the way it was.
Rachel Meyer: No, Gary. No.
Rachel Meyer: We’re not getting married anymore.
Ethan Greene: Wait, you’re not?
Rachel Meyer: No, we just broke… Does it matter?
Gary Wilson: Why do you care if I marry her or not, hmm? I mean, what is it to you?
Ethan Greene: Well, I didn’t say that. But you did steal the ring.
Rachel Meyer: He didn’t steal the ring.
Gary Wilson: You cannot prove that.
Rachel Meyer: Wait. Actually, did you steal the ring?
Gary Wilson: No!
Vanessa: Look, just forget all of this for a second, okay? Everything you haven’t told me. The s**t show of an engagement New Year’s dinner. What is it that you really want?
Ethan Greene: I want to write another book. Yeah, I want to take another shot. I feel like I have to. And I want to move to New York.
Vanessa: Ethan, I hate it here.
Terri Blake: For what it’s worth, Ethan just didn’t want to crush you. That’s why he didn’t tell you.
Rachel Meyer: I was going to be crushed no matter what, so.
Rachel Meyer: I’m going to go home, eat the s**t out of this cornetto, and pass out.
Terri Blake: Hey, you do you.
Daisy: You should be with someone because it’s right for you.
Ethan Greene: You definitely need your own podcast.
Daisy: Dad, Rachel might be white, but the girl can cook.
Ethan Greene: What?
Daisy: Hello? What are you still doing here?
Ethan Greene: Where do you want me to go? Want me to stand outside the restaurant with a boombox over my head?
Daisy: Get your a** up, and let’s go.
Sophia: [referring to Rachel] How’s she doing?
Terri Blake: Well, I asked her to make a date night menu for the long weekend, and she gave me blood sausage and oxtail. In other news, point taken.
Terri Blake: You know, I’d run across town for you too, baby.
Sophia: Don’t suck up.
Terri Blake: I would. I’m lying. I’d probably take a Uber. You right.
Rachel Meyer: I got it. I got your note. I got it a little late.
Ethan Greene: Yeah. I was starting to think, “Could I trust that bike messenger?”
Rachel Meyer: You said that you thought that there was something between us, and that if I thought so too, that I should come here.
Ethan Greene: You were right. I need to start making decisions with my heart and not my head. This, you know, feels…
Rachel Meyer: Like maybe one of those things?
Ethan Greene: Yeah. It does.
[they finally kiss]
Ethan Greene: [one year later] Let’s raise a glass to this beautiful, talented, kind person, who could probably achieve world peace with one loaf of that bread, and who’s also a surprisingly harsh editor I found out over the past year. She knows a lot about semicolons, folks.
Rachel Meyer: Baby, what are you doing right now?
Ethan Greene: She’s my cornetto. And I don’t know what I would do without her. And I don’t plan on finding out anytime soon.
Ethan Greene: Listen, I know all this came together really messy, as some of us know in here. But someone I love dearly once told me, “Don’t think so much about the mess. Focus on the outcome.”
Ethan Greene: [as he gives her the ring she accidentally received last year] I can’t imagine a better outcome than forever with you. Obviously, this ring agrees. Rachel, will you marry me?
Rachel Meyer: Yes. Of course. Yes.
