Tibby: The problem is every time I try to get close to somebody it's like there's something out there that just says oh Tibby's about to be happy, better get her.
Kostos: We are no good at not loving each other...
Lena: I tried. I tried, but I couldn't.
Kostos: I tried too...
Bridget Vreeland: The past is always with us - so it's time I stopped running.
Carmen Lowell: Sometimes I like to think that the pants got lost on purpose. That this was their final gift to us. Bringing us back together. Back to a place of forgiveness, and love, and in understanding that what we shared was all the magic we could ever need. And as we spent those last few moments of summer, looking out at the blending of sea and sky, I realized it was a color I knew very well. The softly faded, essential blue of a well worn pair of pants. The pants had brought us together again. The rest is in our hands.
Brian McBrian: You need to have a little faith, Tibby. Not everyone you love is going to leave you.
Tibby: Are you sure it was a real one?
Brian McBrian: Yes, I'm sure! My uncle gave it to me for graduation, I was saving it.
Tibby: For two years?
Tibby: [having just fallen off a donkey] Awww, that's gonna leave a mark...
[after finishing the play]
Ian: Carmen, that was incredible!
[Carmen kisses Ian]
Ian: Sometimes words fail...
[He kisses her back]
[while stuidying for the play]
Carmen Lowell: "Oh, Lady Fortune! Stand you auspicious!" God! Why don't people talk like this anymore? It's just, we've gotten so lazy! We don't say "Oh, Lady Fortune! Stand you auspiscious!" We say "Dear God, help me..."
Ian: Or instead of "Enjoy the honey heavy-dew of slumber", "Yo, get some Z's"
Carmen Lowell: It's just... It sounds so good and it feels so good to say. It's rich and luscious.
[Carmen touches her cheek]
Ian: "See how she lays her cheek upon her hand. Oh, that I were a glove upon her hand and I might touch that cheek"
Ian: See what I mean?
Carmen Lowell: [blushing] Yeah...
Tibby: I'm sorry! I didn't get the memo that you were in Ala-frickin'-bama!
Leo: Interesting jeans, Lena.
Lena: Oh... Yeah. It's a long story.
Leo: I like long stories... Well, maybe you could tell me over dinner sometime.
Lena: I like dinner.
Bridget Vreeland: Sorry. It must have been lost along with Tibby has a pregnancy scare!
Leo: [to Lena when they met] I'm guessing you're a virgin.
Ian: You welcome.
Carmen Lowell: [sarcastic] Oh, I'm sorry. Did I forget to say thank you?... Thank you.
Ian: How do you feel?
Carmen Lowell: Like a fake.
Ian: Oh, please! You had them at "Um... hi"
Tibby: So Kostos isn't married. Why can't you just stop thinking about it and follow your heart?
Lena: Because... he broke my heart!
