Trivia

Jack and Diane wear the colors of red and blue, respectively. This was meant to signify their differing philosophical ideals, as compared to the colors of the two major political parties of the United States. Thus Jack's red aligns him with the Republicans and Diane's blue aligns her with the Democrats. The Gentleman's green colored shirt was meant to signify a third way (or approach) to life. See more »

Quotes

Jack: They say chess is a game of preparation.
Diane: And who is 'they'?
Jack: People.
Diane: People?
Jack: People. But I don't think about preparation. You see, everyone understands the rules; everyone knows how to play the game, yet people still lose.
Diane: Somebody has to lose.
Jack: Yes, somebody does.
