Charlotte: I just don’t know what I’m supposed to be.
Bob: You’ll figure that out. The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you.

Bob: It gets a whole lot more complicated when you have kids.
Charlotte: It’s scary.
Bob: The most terrifying day of your life is the day the first one is born.
Charlotte: Nobody ever tells you that.
Bob: Your life, as you know it… is gone. Never to return. But they learn how to walk, and they learn how to talk… and you want to be with them. And they turn out to be the most delightful people you will ever meet in your life.
Charlotte: That’s nice.

Charlotte
: Let’s never come here again because it would never be as much fun.

Bob
: I don’t want to leave.

Charlotte
: So don’t. Stay here with me. We’ll start a jazz band.

Bob
: Bye.
Charlotte: Bye.
Bob: Bye.
[Bob leaves Charlotte and walks back to his waiting taxi]
Bob: [to taxi driver] All right.
