  • Quotes (8)

    • Wendell: Slow down girl - I hardly know you. Carly: It's okay .... I don't care. Wendell: Maybe I do. What do you think about that?

    • Ted: God feels exactly like you do. Andrew: So God feels useless! That's reassuring.

    • Carly: Does everything you say sound like a bad country song? Wendell: If you want me to leave, just tell me to go. Carly: ...... Go. Wendell: Alright - be that way - but if you change your mind ... Carly: I know where you're floating.

    • Barry: You're a living breathing man - I think you'll find the experience much more satisfying with a real live girl. Find one!

    • Carly: I don't have issues. Wendell: We all do. That's how we know we're alive.

    • Nori: If a 200 pound man teeters at the edge of a cliff, the 90 pound stranger standing next to him will instinctively reach over and try to save him - even if the big guy will probably take them both over the edge to their deaths. It's a primitive reflex. Sometimes we have to fight it in order to be effective at our jobs. Miro: That reflex ... is what gives me hope for human beings.

    • Wendell: Feels right being back by the ocean - stayed away from it too long. Carly: Where have you been? Wendell: That smell - that's the smell of life. The ocean's natures great roiling belly, this splashing around us - the amniotic fluid of mother earth. That's what we gotta reconnect with man ... the wilderness within ourselves, restore natural order. We gotta pack out what we pack in. Carly: Are you on crack? I smell the fish plant, salmon guts and gull poop.

    • Laura: Miro Da Silva was an immature ass in Coast Guard college - he hasn't changed a bit in eleven years. Carly: Did Sato rip the golden boy a new one? Laura: I don't know - I wasn't listening. Carly: Yeah, right.
