"The Guilt Trip" movie quotes take viewers on a cross-country road trip with a mother and her son in this comedy movie. Originally titled "My Mother's Curse," "The Guilt Trip" was written by Dan Fogelman, directed by Anne Fletcher and produced in part by Loren Michaels, the man behind "Saturday Night Live." "The Guilt Trip" opened in the United States on December 19, 2012.

In "The Guilt Trip," Andy Brewster (Seth Rogen) arrives at his mother Joyce's (Barbra Streisand) home for a visit before going on an eight-day cross-country road trip to sell his new invention. Andy, who worries that his mother has never moved on with another man after his father passed away when he was eight, invites his quirky mom along for the trip in the hopes of reconnecting her with a lost love along the way.

On the trip, Andy and Joyce meet a multitude of interesting characters, like the hitchhikers she urged him not to pick up, then picked up herself, and ended up in several unfortunate situations, like a strip club where Joyce wants to talk about Andy's penis when he was a child. But in the end, the trip does not take them any place they either anticipated. The comedy film also features Adam Scott, Yvonne Strahovski, Colin Hanks, Brett Cullen and Casey Wilson.

For something a bit more serious, there are many other movies in theaters during the 2012 holiday season such as "Killing Them Softly," "Hitchcock," "Skyfall," "Lincoln," "Flight," "Playing for Keeps," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Anna Karenina," "This Must Be the Place," "Cloud Atlas," "Wreck-It Ralph," "Nobody Walks," "The Sessions," "Red Dawn," "Chasing Mavericks," "Rise of the Guardians," "Argo," and "Looper."

Andy: "More than anything in the world"
Joyce: "Don't you think I might get on your nerves a little bit?"
Andy: "No, it was just a thought and if you don't want to do it then fine. I don't want to push you into anything."
Joyce: "What, what, am I so awful that you can't spend a little time in a car with me?"
Andy: "I'm inviting you. Do you want to, do you want to drive across the country with me?"
Joyce: "Well I'd have to reroute my mail."
Andy: "You have five seconds to tell me whether you want to go or not."
Joyce: "I can't wait! What are you kidding me? Honey, that is so exciting! I have to touch my roots though before we go. What are we going to pack? You gotta fill me in on all the weather conditions in all the states that we're gonna go through."

Hesitantly, Andy invites his mother along as he drives across the country for eight days. She first cannot believe that he really wants her to go but then is elated and ready to go.

Joyce: "You seeing anyone?"
Andy: "Are you seeing anyone?"
Joyce: "Please, don't be disgusting. I thought you were seeing that girl with the exotic name."
Andy: "Bethany?"

To change the subject from the topic of who she is, or in actuality isn't, dating, Joyce asks Andy about that one girl he used to date with an exotic name. Bethany isn't exactly an exotic name to most people but most people are not Joyce either.
