Quotes

Ally McBeal: I just got this piano. And sometimes I sing the song called "Goodnight my someone". And it's about... Basically it's a love song to somebody that you've never met but you know is out there. And I know, I mean, we make so few promises to ourselves as we grow up and one of these is that we walk down the aisle with somebody we love, somebody who does make your heart bounce, I guess. And there are some promises that I think we just have to keep.
