Key Quote: Doyle: “There is a beating heart underneath all of the outrageousness that is first proposed when you start watching the movie… there’s something so fresh about their outrageous sense of humor mixed with this sort of deeply feeling, wanting, unsettled, love that is sort of beating underneath it.”
Quinto: “It’s fun, it’s outrageous, it’s unapologetic.”
Gage: “It might be morbid at times, making you think about death and mortality, but also, hate to break it to you but we’re all gonna die. So, you better live your life to the fullest and you better embrace every moment because all that other shit doesn’t really matter.”
