Trivia (Director Cameo) Lorene Scafaria: the director appears in still photos as Olivia, the lost love of Dodge. See more »
Goofs Dodge pulls out the vinyl album "Scott", Scott Walker's first solo album. He takes record out of sleeve puts it on turntable but "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" plays. This was by The Walker Brothers and was not on the album in question. Additionally, the following song that plays "Stay With Me Baby" does not appear on the album "Scott." Nor does it appear on the album "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore." The two tracks only appear together on later released compilation albums. Coincidentally though, the first track on the album "Scott" (the one shown but not played) is "Mathilde" - an alternate spelling of Matilda - which is the name of the asteroid in the movie.

Quotes [last lines]
Penny: I don't want to fall asleep. Okay? Don't let me fall asleep. Promise.
Dodge: I promise. What about your parents?
Penny: They're romantics. They understand. Besides, they've got each other. I just want to be with you.
Dodge: And I want to be with you.
Penny: I couldn't live without you. No matter how long. What do we do now?
Dodge: I just want to lay here with you. Just want to talk to you.
Penny: Okay. What are we gonna talk about?
Dodge: Where'd you grow up?
Penny: Well, I was born in Surrey. My whole family are from there. My mum was a journalist before she married my dad. They never fought. Or at least we never heard them fight. Charlie's the oldest, then Benny, then me. We had a sister but she died when she was born. I still think about her.
[*explosion*]
Penny: Oh God.
Dodge: What was her name? What was your sister's name?
Penny: Patricia. Patricia Hope Lockhart.
Dodge: That's beautiful. That's a beautiful name.
Penny: I wish I'd met you a long time ago. When we were kids.
Dodge: It couldn't have happened any other way. It had to happen now.
Penny: But it isn't enough time.
Dodge: It never would have been.
Penny: I'm scared.
Dodge: I... am madly in love with you, Penny. You're my favorite, favorite thing.
Penny: I thought that somehow we'd save each other.
Dodge: We did. Penny. I'm really glad I got to know you.
