"Celeste and Jesse Forever" movie quotes tell the funny and sometimes painfully awkward tale of two young loves going through a surprisingly amicable divorce. Celeste (Rashida Jones) and Jesse (Andy Samberg) go from being crazy about each other to growing apart romantically and separating, but remaining the best of friends. Some even say they're too good of friends and that something that is tested when both attempt to move on.

Written by Jones and Will McCormack, who also plays Skillz, the "Celeste and Jesse Forever" is based off of their personal relationship which similarly involves failed attempts at romance culminating in a long-lasting friendship. In the movie, Celeste and Jesse marry young but soon find themselves on very different paths. Celeste is moving up in the corporate world while Jesse sits home unemployed. Despite remaining the best of friends, the couple learns that to truly love someone, you might have to let them go and let nature take its course.

"Celeste and Jesse Forever" features an ensemble cast of young and talented stars. Elijah Wood, Emma Roberts, Eric Christian Olsen, Rich Sommer and Chris Messina also appear in the summer film directed by Lee Toland Krieger.

If this rom-com doesn't peak your interest, there's a ton of other great summer 2012 movies to choose from. "Ted," "Madea's Witness Protection," "Magic Mike,", "The Amazing Spider-Man" and the highly anticipated "The Dark Knight Rises" are just a few of the summer blockbusters hitting theaters in 2012.

Celeste: "Hi Riley, I'm Celeste. I'm a partner at Popform. I just wanted to introduce myself."
Riley: "Oh, you're kind of pretty."
Celeste: "Thank you. I'm just going to sneak in here."
Riley: "Why am I breaking out?"
Savannah: "Too much sugar, coffee, alcohol."
Riley: "I think it's my new skin regime... Yeah."
Celeste: "It's ah... It's regimen."
Riley: "What?"
Celeste: "Regime is a system of government. The word is... it's regimen."
Riley: "Ohhh. Thanks, Scrabble. It's really nice to meet you."

Meeting someone new, especially in a restroom like Celeste and Riley do in this "Celeste and Jesse Forever" clip, can be a bit awkward but correcting that new friend for misusing a term, as seen here, can only make matters worse. Perhaps she really meant that her system of government was making her skin break out. Yeah, then again probably not.
