Screw that. This ain't over.

I don't care what I said. This is gonna happen. She can't say it's not meant to be. It is meant to be. And you know why? 'Cause I mean it to be.

Ted, she is going on that camping trip. Dude, barring some act of God, Robin's gonna be with Sandy this weekend.

Fine. If an act of God is what it takes, then an act of God it is.

What are you talking about?

I'm gonna make it rain.
