    • Caitlin: Listen, I'm flattered that you want to be like me. Deirdre: And I'm flattered that you want be like me. Caitlin: No, I am me. You’re just dressing and acting like me. I’m going to have to ask you to change back to who you are. Deirdre: You change. Caitlin: Me change? Well, ok. You’re dating Stuart; I assume you do things for money. What’s it going to take? Deirdre: I think you’re just jealous, because I'm a better version of you. Caitlin: You’re not going to get away with this. Deirdre: Hmm mmm...

    • Deirdre: All right Blondie, listen up. Here's the rules. You stay away from my man, or you and I are going to be co-starring in a play I like to call, 'Deirdre the Prison Guard.' Caitlin: No offense, but I'm not interested in your man. So why don't you just march those $12 pumps back to the trailer park and whip up some dinner for cousin dad.
