    • Helena: I'm quite happy to finish my time and pay my debt to society. Peggy Peabody: Helena, for God's sake, pull yourself together. You're a Peabody. Helena: What difference does that make? Peggy Peabody: Peabody's don't have debts, darling. Not to anyone. And certainly not to society.

    • Jodi: (doing a podcast) There's nothing worse than tentative, timid, lesbian sex. I would never be in one of those bed death lesbian relationships where you just cuddle, and say good night and go to sleep. Ugh. I have a teddy bear if I wanna do that. Shane: Yes!

    • Girl: Oh, great abs. Shane: Thanks. Girl: Can I...? Shane: No, no, no, don't touch me. Please. Tina: (looking on) She's not gonna make it. Alice: I don't think she's gonna make it.

    • Alice: (talking about how Shane is taking a break from sex) So, you're done with girls burning down your shit and throwing rocks through your window? Tina: Somebody threw a rock through your window? Shane: It was one of the bridesmaids from the wedding.

    • Shane: A few days ago I decided to take a major break from sex, thereby eliminating the main cause of insanity in my life.

    Trivia (1)

    • Goof: When the whole group is gathered at The Planet, Peggy Peabody starts talking about her wanting a drink, thinking it was going to be a party. At this time, Jodi has her back towards Peggy, which should result in her not knowing what Peggy is saying. Her facial expressions however, suggests that she does in fact hear what Peggy is saying, and that she is somewhat upset with her.
