The girls witness Kyle arguing with both women in the hallway. When they both dump him, Kyle urges his friends to preserve his reputation. "Maybe we will, maybe we wo-wo-wo-wo-won't!" Max exclaims.

    • Max: Regine, you little maggot. I can't believe you put our business out on the street like that. Synclaire: You told him about my feet. Khadijah: And my panties. And I will have you to know that since I have been dating Alonzo, I have been wearing my special occassion underwear. From the back of the drawer.

    • Khadijah: I think we all need to make an effort not to gossip. Regine: Hold up. That's very vague. What you mean by gossip? Khadijah: Whatever comes out of your mouth.

    • Khadijah: We know way too much about these people. Max: That's 'cause Radio Free Regine is on the mic 24/7.

    • Regine: When you think about it, it's pretty funny. Khadijah: Go to hell! There's nothing funny about a big-mouth roommate. Synclaire: Ditto. Except for the "hell" part.

    • Max (When Kyle is at door and has called Khadijah on his cell phone): Hey, you can hang up on him and slam the door in his face at the same time.
