The anonymous letter that Grace sends to the Organ Donor Liaison, and that Bob reads in the back of his truck, says: "Dear Donor Family: I hope this letter may be of some comfort, although words cannot express the depth of my gratitude. I am eternally grateful for the thoughtfulness you and your loved ones have given me in your moment of deepest sorrow. I awake each day feeling the gentle rhythm of the heart that beats inside me. It is because of you I am alive today. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers. I thank you and God bless." See more »
When Grace mails off the thank you letter at the Zoo, we see a close-up of the front of the envelope, and in large, capital letters we see R.O.B.I. Towards the end of the movie, when Grace finds her letter on Rob's desk, the letters are NOT capitalized, and MUCH smaller, with no periods: robi. See more »

I put the special candle out there that repels all the bugs, every species but one.

This beautiful, charming love story drew me in immediately with its lovable characters and heart-warming romance. I became so attached to the characters throughout the film that I felt as if I knew them personally. The storyline is very enchanting, and it brought me to tears in several touching moments. Duchovny and Driver have a very cute, chaste relationship that you can't help getting involved in. This one's worth watching more than once, and showing to all your friends. I'm just curious, why wasn't this a big hit?
I give this a 10 out of 10! Spectacular film! (And this is coming from a guy who thinks that 9 out of 10 movies aren't even worth watching.)
