    • Randi: You're late. Dave: I know, I really needed coffee. Randi: You wouldn't be late if Weaver was here. Dave: That's right...but she's not.

    • Maggie: I tried. I did everything I could think of. I got married. I had two kids. I tried to fool everyone that I was just like them. God, why did you come Abby? Abby: Because you needed me. Maggie: There's no one here to save.

    • Abby: You want me to talk to her? Carter: What would you say? Abby: That I asked you to come with me to help me with my mother. Carter: You did'nt ask me to come with you. Abby: Just get back and send her some flowers, I'm sure she'll be fine. Carter: I don't think so. Abby: She's young. You're gonna get involved with a teenager, you gotta expect a little drama. Carter: We broke up. Abby: You broke up? Carter: She broke up. Abby: When? Carter: Last night. Abby: She broke up with you over a basketball game? Carter: Over you. Abby: That's silly! What did she think? We're having an illicit affair or something? Carter: No. Just that I have a crush on you. (pause) What ever. It's not like the relationship was absolute. Abby: I know, but I did'nt want you to break up because of me. Carter: Face it: You're a home wrecker.

    • Abby: I'm taking an 11:40 flight to Tulsa. Luka: Hold on, I checked. There's a psychiatric facility at St.John's... Abby: Carter's coming with me. Luka: What? Abby: He offered to help, and I have to drive her back here, so... Luka: I offered to help. Abby: No, you offered to decide for me. Luka: Abby, your mother needs hospitalisation, not a road-trip with you and Carter! Abby: Yeah, Luka. We're doing it for the fun of it! It's gonna be a blast! Luka: Abby, it's a mistake. Abby: Are you gonna lecture me on this? Luka: No. Abby: Good. 'Cause you have no idea what it's like. I grew up with this and I, I don't wanna be lectured on it! Luka: I'm not lecturing. I'm trying to help! Don't put yourself in the position to get hurt again! Abby: Well, you'd be the expert at that, wouldn't you? (pause) I'm sorry. Luka: O.k. Go.

    • Malucci: Hey, I got you your cigars. Greene: Ah, great! Malucci: Congratulations! Wow, she's a cute one! Look at her! You'll have to keep the boys away from her, you know what I mean? What's her name? Greene: Ella. Malucci: Hiya, Ella! You're quite the heifer, aren't you? Can I hold her? Greene: No. Malucci: I just washed my hands. Greene: Good for you, Dave. Malucci: You serious? Greene: I'll see you later. Malucci: Why can't I hold her? Greene: Go away, Dave. Malucci: Hey, you owe me three hundred bucks for the cigars.
