  • Quotes (12)

    • (After Kitty's trip to Castroville) Kitty: I did go there thinking that if I could find any dirt on you at all, it would be buried in your home town. Robert: You can bury dirt? How does that work exactly? Kitty: But instead I found out that I'm really screwed up here because I'm falling in love with a saint. Robert: You what? Kitty: Mm, nothing, no I just said that you're this incredibly perfect saint-like saint. Robert: Well most saints are saint-like but we'll get to that in a minute, you're what? Kitty: (Mumbling quietly) Oh, I just said that I was falling in love with you.

    • Kevin: This little drama of peek-a-boo in and out of the closet and the hysteria it inspires is starting to wear just a little bit thin. Chad: Because I'm freaked out about the implications of coming out and what that might mean for my career. Kevin: Oh God, I hate that word. Career. It's like the modern day religion.

    • (After Chad dumps Kevin) Kevin: You know what, I'm going to join a Monastery anyway, one of those vow of silence places, so I can stay out of trouble. Justin: Well you'd probably find a way, especially with all of those Monks batting their eyes at you.

    • (At a party) Sarah: Is that a romper suit? I've never felt this old in my life. Kitty: What about that time when you- Sarah: Yeah, you finish that sentence, you're dead to me.

    • Justin: I should have a black eye for as long as possible to remind me never to be a chivalrous ass. Kevin: I wish I was a chivalrous ass instead of being just wholly an ass.

    • Kitty: (to the Senator's high school girlfriend) We all know how guy's are at that age. They're immature and grabby. Was he grabby? I bet he was. high school girlfriend: Don't you work for him? Kitty: Yeah-yeah. But nobody-nobody is that perfect. Not even Mr. McSainthood. This is Kitty's play on the now well-known "Mc" label appearing often in another ABC hit show, Grey's Anatomy. Recently dubbed "McLabels" in a Grey's Anatomy recap special hosted by Jeffrey Dean Morgan titled "Every Moment Counts", they are generally used when referring to the male gender in flirty, amusing, and/or sarcastic ways.
