Wren Butler: Don’t pack work. Why would you pack work?
Lily: Because it’s a short vacation and a very long life afterwards.
Wren Butler: Yeah, I’ve been thinking about that, and I really don’t think this whole “being an adult” thing is going to work out for me.
Lily: [referring to Georgia] You’re not sitting together, okay? You’re on opposite sides of the auditorium, which is the size of Rhode Island.
David: That’s the smallest state.
Lily: [over phone] So you promise? No mean comments. No arguing. No passive aggression.
Georgia: What about aggressive aggression? Is that okay?
David: [as they find out they’re sitting together at Lily’s graduation] You got to be kidding me.
Georgia: Guess this is my seat, as you haven’t had a date since Lily was in braces.
David: At least when I do date, it’s age appropriate.
Georgia: That’s my armrest.
David: No, it’s in the middle.
Georgia: This is so like you. Take, take, take.
David: It is not a metaphor. It is an armrest.
Lily: Some of us maybe had seven too many Jägerbombs last night.
Wren Butler: Just one too many. The other six were perfection.
David: You know, telling someone to calm down has literally never calmed anyone down in the history of the universe.
David: You know, for once you could back me up.
Georgia: I could. But then I’d be wrong too.

Georgia: See you again. Never.
David: Hopefully not that soon.
Gede: My father was a seaweed farmer, his father before him.
Lily: And what about his father before him?
Gede: He was a fisherman. They can’t all be winners.
Gede: Nature, God, and people. Balance the three, and you have harmony.
Lily: I am so out of balance.
David: [over phone] Check your email.
Georgia: I do check it. You’re blocked.
David: Lily wrote us.
Georgia: Whatever this is, it’s your fault.
Beth-Ann: [to David] I’m Beth-Ann Flannery. I like to befriend my seatmates in case we crash, so they’re more inclined to pull me from the wreckage.

Georgia: Excuse me, ma’am. I think your things are in my seat.
Beth-Ann: Oh, sorry.
Georgia: [as she notices David] Oh, come on.
David: You’ve got to be kidding me.
Beth-Ann: [to David] You speak English!
Georgia: [to David] You’re still doing the Italian tourist bit?
Georgia: [to the flight attendant] Excuse me, ma’am, I need to sit somewhere else.
Flight Attendant: Oh, I’m sorry. It’s a full flight.
Georgia: We used to be married.
David: Worst nineteen years of my life.
Georgia: We were only married for five.
David: I’m counting the recovery.
Georgia: I can’t sit there.
Flight Attendant: There’s nothing I can do.
Beth-Ann: [to Georgia] I’ll swap with you, dear. Just remember in case we go down. You owe me one.
David: I told you I was going to get her.
Georgia: [to the passenger sat between them] In four days time…
David: Our daughter is going to marry a guy she just met in Bali, millions of
miles from home.
Georgia: Excuse me. Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?
David: She’s throwing her career away.
Georgia: Just like her mother did. Which is why I’m the only that can stop her. She doesn’t listen to him.
Paul: David? What are you doing here?
David: I’m flying to Bali. What are you doing here?
Paul: I’m flying you to Bali.

Beth-Ann: [referring to Paul] Oh, my. Those eyes. Couldn’t you just swim in them?
David: They’re blue. Big deal. So are my socks.
Beth-Ann: And Frenchmen make such great lovers.
David: That’s a rumor they started about themselves.
Georgia: Oh, keep telling yourself that.
Georgia: [to the flight attendant] Oh, two, please.
David: Just leave the bottle. Thank you.
Georgia: The last time David was actually helpful was the night we made Lily.
Paul: There’s an image I’m not crazy about.
Georgia: You live. You learn. You upgrade.
Georgia: It’s a totally foreign concept to you, but Paul puts me first. He supports everything I do.
Paul: That’s because everything she does is perfect.
Georgia: He’s exaggerating.
David: Is he? Are you?
Paul: I’m really not.
David: We need to be in lockstep.
Georgia: No meanness.
David: No arguing.
Georgia: We speak as one.
David: Exactly right.
Georgia: When do we start?
David: Right after we see Lily.

Lily: [to Georgia and David] So, did you make a pact to not murder each other until you murder me first?
David: [after she greets Gede in Balinese] You learned that to make me look bad.
Georgia: You don’t need my help there.
Gede: Mr. and Mrs. Cotton, I welcome you to my country, and soon to my home.
Georgia: Mrs. Cotton is his mother. You can just call me Georgia.
Gede: Oh. As you wish, Georgia.
David: Yeah. I’m good with “Mr. Cotton”.
Lily: [as they watch Gede drive off with Georgia on the back of his bike] Isn’t he amazing?
David: Only if he drops her.

Losi: And now he is saying you remind him of a very attractive horse.
Georgia: Oh. Really?
Losi: That can’t be right.
Losi: [after checking with her uncle again in Balinese] No. He did mean horse.
David: [referring to Lily] I can see her being happy here. For a while.
Gede: For a while?
David: Well, nothing lasts forever.
Gede: Marriage is supposed to.
David: That’s what I thought till I was sitting across from Georgia with a bunch of lawyers, dividing up our stuff. So, enjoy this.

David: I initiated phase two. We get out of the Trojan horse. We start killing people.
Georgia: We are nowhere near phase two.
David: Maybe you’re at a different party, but from where I’m sitting, we’re about to inherit a hundred and fifty new in-laws.
Georgia: Oh, God. You only ever see things your own way.
David: Everybody only ever sees anything their own way.

Gede’s Father: For marriage, it must to be the right place. It must to be the right time. It must to be the right circumstance.
Georgia: I wish someone had explained that to us. We were O for three.
David: One for three.
Georgia: Wrong circumstance, wrong time.
David: Right place. By the lake.
Georgia: Do you still snore?
David: Do you know anybody that snores less when they get older?

David: You know, you used to do sleep karate. You’d fling yourself around the bed like you were attacking it.
Georgia: I wasn’t asleep. I was attacking you.
Georgia: Try to keep the snoring down.
David: I have a nasal strip.
Georgia: It’s a mystery you’re still alone.

Wren Butler: What happened with you and Mrs. C?
