And, um, the universe lets your heart expand that way, and I think that's the function of all this pain and heartache that you go through and you gotta go through that to come out to a better place and that's how I see it, anyway.
Jake : It's a long story, something about the violation of expectations and a crushing loss of faith, and love, and life, and art.

Jake : Yes.
Bill : I've had a little bit of girl trouble myself lately. But it is better to have loved and lost, am I right?
Jake : She was a unique constellation of attributes; she was my Halley's comet. But the universe is designed to break your heart, right?

Jake : Yes, with the possible exception of the victims of violent crime

Jake : Oh Charlie, you should've seen this girl; she's shy, she's fragile, she's self conscious, she has no idea how beautiful she is... she's a M-E-S-S-S... it's FAN-TAS-TIC!
Carol : Hello! Don't worry, it's just me. I'm in the kitchen. I filled your freezer again. There's now enough meat to feed every guy who answered your ad and still...
[Walks in from the kitchen and sees Jake]
Carol : Whoa.
Sarah : Jake Anderson, my sister Carol. Jake did, in fact, answer the ad.
Jake : Do I get my meat?
[Carol tosses him the meat]
