List of While You Were Sleeping quotes.

Lucy: You're trying on my shoes?
Joe Jr.: No, I-I slipped and my foot just went like that
(makes swooping hand gesture)
Joe Jr.: right into the shoe.

Jack: Hey, what do you know about my family? Spending a week with them does *not* make you an expert!
Lucy: Spending a *lifetime* with them hasn't made you one, either!
(goes inside her apartment building. Jack follows)
Jack: Yeah, well, I know that keeping your family happy gets complicated. Would your father be happy knowing you're sitting in a token booth, planning vacations that you aren't taking?
Lucy: No, he wouldn't. You're right. But you have no idea what it's like to be alone.
Jack: Hey, you have Peter.
Lucy: I don't have anybody.

Lucy: (trying to heave a tree up to her second floor apartment through the window) $45 for a Christmas tree and they don't deliver? You order $10 worth of chow mein from Mr. Wong they bring it to your door.
