    • Ricky Wilder: (on the phone with a costume shop clerk) Do you have any mouse costumes? (pause) Yes, I'm aware that today is Halloween and that people purchased their costumes months in advance - I've always admired people like that. (pause) But still no mice? What costumes do you have? (pause) That's the ONLY ONE LEFT? (pause) I don't think so, not for an eight-year-old girl. But, out of curiosity, how much is the Clarence Thomas outfit?

    • Dexter: Sometimes I wish... I wish I could just be 40, you know? With a wife, a kid, a dog, and a Dairy Queen franchise... and not have to worry about stupid things... but it all gets twisted up inside and comes out wrong and everything I touch breaks apart or turns ugly and dies. Danielle: Wow... you're really tormented, aren't you?

    • Beth: Honestly, Brody, you're taking this fight thing way out of proportion. Brody: Why not tell that to Danielle? Beth: What? Brody: Oh, that's right, Beth. Act surprised. I know she and Dex have a date tonight. I can't believe you guys... (Brody leaves) Beth: (sits down on the couch with Dorfman) I feel terrible. Dorfman: Me too. Beth: I thought Dex wanted me.

    • (Beth enters Dex's garage angrily. Dex still has his shirt off) Dexter: Let me guess, friend of Brody's? Beth: That's right. So you can put your pecs away 'coz it's not gonna work with me.
