My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 movie quotes bring back the laughs as the Portokalos family returns for yet another lavish Greek wedding. Reuniting the original cast, the comedy sequel was written by Nia Vardalos and directed by Kirk Jones. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 opened in theaters on March 25, 2016.

In My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, Toula (Nia Vardalos) and Ian (John Corbett) have now been married for several years and their daughter, Paris (Elena Kampouris), is preparing to head off for college. Paris deals with similar family issues as Toula did at that age with their big Greek family, including grandmother Maria (Lainie Kazan), grandfather Gus (Michael Constantine) and Aunt Voula (Andrea Martin), always around close, perhaps too close.

So while Toula deals with Paris leaving the nest and she and Ian deal with their own marital issues, a surprise in marital records sends the family on another adventure to throw one more big fat Greek wedding, this time even bigger, fatter and more Greek.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 had stiff competition when it opened alongside other March 2016 films such as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Brothers Grimsby, 10 Cloverfield Lane, and Eye in the Sky.

Toula: A long time ago, I had a big fat greek wedding. Now my daughter is all grown up. Ian and I are just trying to find a minute to ourselves, and my family is still too close, but there's always a few surprises. Now, my family has come together to pull off another big fat greek wedding.

Toula, in a voice over, gives an update on what the family has been doing for the last dozen years or so and provides a quick overview of the film. Now that her daughter is grown and heading off to college, this is tough, as is the family unexpectedly planning another big fat Greek wedding.

Maria: We come from a long line of strong women. Remember, Paris, protect the polaki! Eyes open, knees shut!
Aunt Voula: If your knees are open, shut your eyes!

Maria gives granddaughter Paris some advice before Paris heads off for college. While the logistics of the knees and eyes being open or not are debated, the gist is for Paris to remember to value herself.

Some Local Colleges Too

Toula: I hope you applied to some local colleges too.
Paris: Why do parents always say dream big when they really mean, not too big?

Where Paris will attend college is a sensitive spot for mother Toula. While parents always say they want their children to dream big, they also fear those same children leaving home, like to attend a college far away.

Paris: This family's always in my business.
Gus: Keep your eyeballs open for a nice Greek boy so one day you can make babies. Don't waste your eggs!
Paris: They follow me everywhere. I need some air!
Ian: Your mom felt the same way about being Greek.
Paris: Florida, Texas, New York, these are the colleges I'm applying to. I want to go far, far away from here.
Toula: Why do you want to leave me?
Gus: [coughs] Payback

Just as Toula dealt with growing up, being a daughter in a big Greek family isn't the easiest for Paris. Between her grandfather urging her to procreate before she's graduated high school to being smothered by other family members, Paris wants nothing more than to attend college far, far away.
