Most memorable quote: “Gandhi said: ‘whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it’s very important that you do it.’ Because nobody else will. Like when someone comes into your life and half of you says you’re nowhere near ready, but the other half says: make her yours forever.” – Tyler
Most memorable scene: Ally has her dessert first
