    • Blair: I swear I will never meddle in Tootie's life again. And if I do, promise me you'll shut me up any way you have to. (Jo grins)

    • (After discovering Tootie made up a fake boyfriend) Jo: Why would she do that? Blair: Why? I'll tell you why; to make a fool out of Blair Warner! Jo: You don't need Tootie for that.

    • Blair: How could I be so insensitive? Jo: Practice.

    • (Tootie reads a letter from her fake boyfriend) Tootie: I shouldn't be jealous, but I know you're too good for me and I don't deserve you. Why is this cruel world keeping us apart? I can't go on with this torture... Blair: You know, every man that's ever loved me has said those same words. Jo: "I can't go on with this torture"?

    • Jo: No kiddin', you're penpals? That's cute. Tootie: Cute?! Teddy's letters would melt the chrome off your exhaust pipe.
