Did You Know?

Sandra Bullock states that she felt compelled to name the dog "Jack" after the character of Keanu Reeves in Speed - the first movie the two of them made together.

Girl Patient: My mom's last boyfriend was bald. He was nice, but she didn't marry him.
Kate: No?
Girl Patient: There's always something better coming around the corner. That's what she says...
Kate: If she's not careful, she can spend her whole life waiting.
