[on the phone with Sidda]
How did you know it was me?
Who else? How are you feeling?
A little disoriented.
Well, horse tranquilizers will do that for you.
I can't believe you let them do this.
They didn't ask my permission. They called me on the way to the airport, they informed me of their plan. I saw you off.
I met you at the airport, helped them get you on the plane. They're organized. They even had a note from a doctor. By the way, your pills are in your bag.

The skewed time line is what kept me from enjoying this movie more. Siddel's childhood had to be in the 1950's, which would mean that Sandra Bullock was playing a woman about 50. Nothing in the movie (look at the way Sandra Bullock was dressed and her hair) hinted at the present time being in the 1980's. Other than that issue, this was a good movie. I loved Siddel's boyfriend's frustration with his soon to be in-laws, he should have gotten a larger role. James Garner is always great, but unbelievable that any man could live with a wife like his all those years and come out of it with his mild demeanor. In reality he would either be a henpecked shadow of a man, beaten down, or he would be as bad as his wife.
