20. Possibly true...
Ashley [to JP]: I think I’m funnier than you. I think you’re cuter than me.

19. Just don’t watch the part where Ashley rubs Ben with mud.
JP: Every time I’m around Ashley I’m smiling ear to ear.

18. We get it! We’re jealous, but we get it.
JP: I want all of you to walk away from this knowing that I am 100 percent in love with her.

17. Ladies, take it to the Muay Thai ring.
Ashley [to her sister Chrystie]: It pisses me off because you're saying everything that's in my head. I know all these things and I'm trying to figure it out but you just come across like you're being such a bitch.

16. But it’s nothing compared to my feelings for Constantine.
Ben: This is the best feeling that I've had about a woman ever.

15. As erotic as your “Cream Dreams” video?
Ben: When you're lubing each other up with mud, it's really quite erotic.

14. Be sure to tell JP “But I wanted to rub the mud on your body 50 times!”
Ashley: All I wanted to do is rub that mud all over his body, like 10 times.

13. Bury your dignity?
Ashley [to Ben, in the mud bath]: I wish I could reach lower, so I could, like...

12. Just two kids in love, having erotic times with mud.
Ben: Her walls are down. My walls are down. It's just two kids in love.

11. Or for about another 45 minutes...
Ben: I'm content. I feel like I have met my match. And I could kiss this girl for the rest of my life.

10. Agreed! Oh, you meant with Ashley?
JP: I think we're a perfect, perfect fit.

9. If only Ben had thought to say this...
JP: Try not to break my heart.

8. Sugar is for Cupcakes
Ben: What I don’t need you to do is sugar-coat it.

7. Debbie Downer in da house!
Ben: You can’t leave something like this on good terms… Good things don’t end unless they end badly.

6. You got smoked like salmon, bro
Ben: I don’t know what the f**k just happened.

5. So when I get wrinkles, it’s YOUR fault!
JP: You always say to me “You’re smiling all the time, you’re gonna have wrinkles when you’re older.” Well, I smile because of you. You bring that out.

4. Except how much you loved rubbing Ben with mud.
JP: What I do know for absolute certainty that I am absolutely in love with you. I love everything about you.

3. Unless Bentley calls?
Ashley: Today is the reason why I went through all the good times and the bad times and I’ve been wanting to tell you how much I loved you for so long. You mean the world to me and I do not want to be with anyone else but you forever.

2. Tag!
JP: I’m so in love with you. You’re the one. You’re it.

1. It’s “Cupcake”
Ashley: I love you so much, baby.
