    • Jane: I'm in an all new kind of hell. I'm in a relationship and I'm not allowed to have sex. It's like being a man.

    • Susan: Jane’s breasts scare me. They’re like Mickey Mouse’s ears. Whichever way she turns, they’re still facing you.

    • Julia: Jeff, I suggested you tie me up and treat me mean...and you went out shopping for an hour!

    • Jane: I have twelve breasts!

    • Jeff: Fact of life: the longer a man doesn't see a woman naked, the more he turns into a giant hoover pig.
