Buddy Wittenborn: You know what you've got? You have got a talent for love. You're like a love genius. And there are too many statues of generals and politicians, and there are not enough statues of someone like you. In this world, there is so much of what looks like love, and sounds like love, and calls itself love, but it isn't. It's just people saying and doing what they think they ought to say and do. And you, you, you, are the greatest. You're the greatest. You're the greatest. So here's to love, an-and, here's to you.
Ann Grant Lord: There's no such thing as a mistake. You get nervous, but you sing anyways.
(from trailer) Buddy Wittenborn: What if we just sang and laughed together... for the rest of our lives. Young Ann: It wouldn't work. Buddy Wittenborn: Not for you...
