|When a one-night stand that should have stayed that way has unexpected consequences, the reluctant odd couple attempts to transform their tentative relationship into a lasting love in this conception comedy. Twenty-four-year-old entertainment journalist Alison Scott (Katherine Heigl) is on the fast track to the big time, but an alcohol-fueled hookup with responsibility-shirking slacker Ben Stone (Seth Rogen) finds her professional priorities taking a back seat to having a baby. Now, as overgrown kid Ben attempts to assume the responsibilities of fatherhood, he makes the brave decision to stand by Alison. In order to make things work between the pair, however, there’s going to have to be some compromise, and when Alison and Ben decide to take a shot at love, they quickly find that building a relationship from scratch isn’t nearly as easy as making a baby.|

Jack: We decided that, we want you to be on camera.
Alison: Oh my god, really?
Jill: I know, I was so surprised too.
Alison: You want me to lose weight?
Jack: No, I don’t want you to lose weight!
Jill: No, uh, we can’t legally ask you to do that.
Jack: We didn’t say lose weight… I might say tighten.
Jill: Just liked toned and smaller.
Jack: Don’t make everything smaller, I don’t wanna generalize that way… tighter.
Jill: We don’t want you to lose weight, we just want you to be healthy. You know, by eating less.
Jill: We would just like it if you go home and step on the scale, and write down how much you weigh, and subtract it by like, 20.
Jill: And then weigh that much.
