A Walk in the Woods movie quotes bring the book of the same name by Bill Bryson to the big screen for a feature film. Directed by Ken Kwapis, the adventure comedy was adapted into a screenplay by Rick Kerb and Bill Holderman. A Walk in the Woods opened in the United States on September 2, 2015.

In A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson (Robert Redford) returns to the United States after several years in Europe along with wife Catherine (Emma Thompson). Looking to connect to his homeland in one last adventure, Bill decides he wants to hike 2,000 miles on the Appalachian Trail. Despite many (including R. Keith Harris and Nick Offerman) trying to talk Bill out of the journey, the old man is determined.

So on the urging of Catherine, Bill takes a buddy with him, however, the only person he can get to agree to go is an old friend in poor health named Stephen Katz (Nick Nolte). Bill and Katz set out on their adventure and meet a number of interesting folks along the way (including Mary Steenburgen and Kristen Schaal), but also face some challenges. Can two old men, one in poor health, survive a 2,000-mile journey on foot? You'll have to watch the film to find out.

A Walk in the Woods opens in theaters just in time for Labor Day 2015 alongside other films such as The Transporter: Refueled, No Escape, Z for Zachariah, She's Funny That Way, and We Are Your Friends.

Bill: How would you like to join me for a little stroll?
Caller One: Not in this lifetime!

Bill: That was 40 years ago.

On the request of wife Catherine, Bill asks around for someone to accompany him on this adventure. Though most friends decline, one is interested, though the taker is perhaps more ill-equipped for the adventure than Bill.

Katz: Screw this. We're not even halfway there.
Bill: No way that's to scale.
Katz: Map to scale! That's it. New plan!
Bill: You want to drive the Appalachian Trail?

Bill: You can do whatever you want but this is my adventure.
Katz: Fine!
Bill: That's the spirit.

When the men stop for the night, they are discouraged to learnt that they are only a small portion of their way through the hike. Katz has an idea to drive the trail, rather than hike, something Bill is not even going to consider.
