Quotes

[first lines]

Harrison Destry: [narrating] The poet says "Love makes the world go 'round." That may not technically be accurate, but love makes the world a more interesting place while its spinning. Now, love's a lot of things: flowers, sweet music, and soft lights and champagne. Champagne is the drink of lovers; only problem is champagne is tricky. You never know how it's going to affect ya. Like my friend Pete Daley - when he drank champagne, well, he forgot things. And when he forgot things, it caused trouble... and trouble is something that flat follows me around.
