"The moments of comedy are there. But the whole idea of a vacation is the stripping away of stuff and then, by the end of the vacation, (at least) in my life, you do have these moments as a group, as a family having a great time, so mellow again. It takes a while to do that but that's what this movie is about."

"The really interesting people we meet in our lives are mixed with comedy and tragedy. What they've created with Sheila, the audience and I have no idea what's going to happen, what she's going to do, or what she's going to say."
