NYC on NYE
Stan Harris: "Nothing beats New York on New Year's Eve."
What movie about romance and general awesomeness in New York on New Year's Eve would be complete without Robert De Niro (as Stan Harris, in the movie of course), professing his love of the Big Apple? Points for a De Niro appearance. I won't tell you anything more about De Niro's character in the movie though. No sense in spoiling!

New Year's Resolutions
Ingrid: "My New Year's resolutions: If you can make these come true by midnight, you get these..."
Paul: "Four tickets to that party? You called the right guy."
Ingrid (Michelle Pfeiffer) plays a secretary who realizes she's got a lot of unresolved New Year's resolutions. Time to make a list, check it twice and get cracking! Fortunately it's the handsome (and much younger) Paul (Zac Efron) to the rescue!

Don't Mess With Serendipity
Grandpa Jed: "So you went out for a slice of pizza, right? And you may have just run into "the one." You know what that is?"
Grandpa Jed: "Serendipity. You don't mess with serendipity."
Now you know any great rom-com about New Year's Eve will mention serendipity, right? In this case, Sam (Josh Duhamel), is trying to wrap his head around the idea that he met the woman of his dreams, briefly, and now he's got to find her. Who is she? Well, that's part of the fun of 'New Year's Eve' - with so many characters, it's hard to tell which beautiful woman is the object of his affections!

Pregnant Women Fight
Griffin: "Let's go honey. Nobody wins when pregnant women fight."
Griffin tries to convince his (very pregnant) wife, Tess, that she needs to calm down and quit being so competitive with other pregnant women. What does it matter who delivers first? Oh. Wait. It does matter: They'll win thousands for having the first baby of the new year!

Hailey: "Mom, I’m over it. I’m over it and I’m over you! You’re just some wannabe hipster who judges everything and who’s too scared to take a chance."
Poor Kim. She really didn't deserve that from her upstart teenage, girls-gone-wild wanna be daughter, did she? To be fair, Hailey has a point about taking more chances...
