"Because my mom had this whole life I don't know about, and I want to know what was so great about X that she couldn't get over him and had to break Howard's heart"
"Ren, please! I think it's what my mom wanted me to do. And I can't face Howard like this. I can't.
"You look beautiful. I don't care what Ren's girlfriend looks like. She doesn't stand a chance"
"It's a cemetery." My voice was like weak tea.
“Why are you being so quiet? Is Gravedigger there?”
“I’m in my bedroom, but I get the feeling that sound travels in this house. I don’t know if he can hear me or not.”
“Great. So you can’t even speak freely. We’d better come up with a code word so I know if you’re okay. Say ‘bluebird’ if you’re being held hostage.”
“Addie and I had once won a costume contest dressed as Tacky Tourists. These two could have been our inspiration.”
“Howard still had steam curling out of his nostrils.”
"You know, people come to Italy for all sorts of reasons, but when they stay, it's for the same two things."
