->Tony has all the exposition, which is always the hardest part of doing any script... It's like in a theatre piece: actors really hate having to deliver exposition. It's called 'heavy lifting', and that's his job. Spike's a badass, because ''he'' said so. Tony does that great.

->'''Sam:''' Oh, my guess is, he'll take the Trans-Canada Highway to New Brunswick, then maybe catch the 1 and take the scenic route along the coast of Maine. 95 through New Hampshire to the Mass Pike, and then cut over to the Merritt Parkway round Milford.\\
'''Toby:''' ''([[{{beat}} pregnant pause]])'' Something really kinda ''freakish'' about you, you know that?\\
'''Sam:''' Yeah.

->'''Hathaway''': I wouldn't read too much into the absence of a 'Goodbye Cruel World', sir. Statistically, the instances of suicide notes in Graham's demographic is in the 12-to-20% range.\\
'''Lewis''': Where do you ''get'' this stuff?\\
'''Hathaway''': [[AskAStupidQuestion The back of cereal boxes.]]\\
'''Lewis:''' Some days, I'm grateful you're on ''our'' side.

->'''Interviewer:''' Will Harry and Ron ever read “Hogwarts, a History”?\\
