    • (Brent begins ripping off the front pages of the agenda's Erica is laying out) Erica: Whoa! Hey, Brent, what are you doing? Brent: Today, of all days, you forget to bold the title? Always bold … (tears another) the title. Erica: Brent, no, they're fine. Brent: No, they are so not fine. You see that? (gestures to Julianne) Dark sunglasses? Not good. Word around the office is that Jackson dumped her. Quelle surprise.

    • Erica: So, tell me … why are- why are you pulling out all the stops tonight? Ryan: Why do you think? Erica: Uh. let's see, maybe you're feeling guilty because you're flying away tomorrow and leaving me dateless for my boss's very big, important anniversary party? Ryan: Okay, yeah, now I feel guilty. But, no, it's more than that. Erica: Yeah? Ryan: Yeah, tonight is three months to the day that we first met. Erica: We're-we're celebrating three months? Ryan: You think I'd make crème brûlée for just any old night? Erica: No, I just … Ryan: You thought I was in it for the hot sex? (Erica laughs nervously) No, Erica. I don't make crème brûlée just for anyone, only the ones that I … Erica (teasing): Uh, wha- eh? The ones that you what? Ryan: Nothin'. Erica: Only the ones that you wanna impress with your … superb culinary skills, hmm? Ryan: Only the one's that I love. Erica (stunned silence): Wow! That's, um … (stammers) I just, I meant, I mean that love is, uh … I mean, it's a very serious … emotion. Ryan: Ah. Sorry, I didn't mean to put you on the spot.

    • Erica: Love. It's the biggest risk we take - and the most enduring mystery.

    • (watching Julianne attach herself to Ethan) Erica: Twenty-four. Brent: No, that was touch number twenty-five, in … five minutes. So, what is it about him do you think? I mean, he's got … great eyes. I can't compete with what God gave him. Is it his hair? Because that's something I can do something about. (Erica laughs) Maybe get a … mullet?

    • (Ryan is jealous of Ethan and Erica) Ethan: You know, I'm just curious, what is it you think we do when we get together? Ryan: Watch reruns of Sex and the City, drink tea and share feelings? I'm joking, buddy, lighten up.

    Allusions (2)

    • Erica: And you-you look like a reject from The Village People. Referring to Dr. Tom's gay biker outfit, Erica alludes to The Village People, a costumed, '80's disco group created to target disco's large gay audience.

    • Judith: Oh, that Ani DiFranco box set. Jenny: That Melissa Etheridge collection - and the women's softball league you joined back in grade 9. Thinking that Erica has been "outed" as a lesbian, her friends allude to Melissa Etheridge and Ani DiFranco, two openly gay musicians - as if listening to their music would somehow confirm "gayness".
