Mr Potts: For what it's worth, here's what I know. We, and by we I mean humans, for some reason we find it hard to let go of the past. I'm not saying there's no place for memories. What I'm saying is you can't live today in the past because then your future will look just the same as it did yesterday. You can't live in the future either because then today will pass you by. The only way to be truly happy is to connect with the present, connect with the moment.
Eli: Who needs a hug? Do you know what I say? Better out than in.
Zooey: You can't just order a taxi and leave school whenever you want!
Eli: Well how do you expect me to get around? Have you been on a London bus recently? A taxi is really the quickest and most efficient way.
Zooey: Hey, so I was thinking maybe we should go shopping and get you some new clothes so you don't have to dress up every day.
Eli: I don't dress up because I have to. A man should look his best at all times.
Zooey: Quite right. Just in case you want to dress more casually.
Eli: I appreciate the gesture.
