    • Helena: You know, I was so fucking bored up there. You were the only thing that wasn't boring me to tears. Come on. Let's go for a swim. Tina: I don't have a bathing suit. Helena: And?

    • Bette: I don't know how you could lie to me for nearly four months. I mean, we were still together... We were a couple, and you were pregnant, and I had no idea. Tina: I planned to tell you, and then you fucked off. Bette: I fucked up. I did not fuck off. I did not leave; I am still here.

    • Tina: (about Helena) I can't believe she saw me like this. Alice: Like what, like a pregnant woman at home doing normal things in her apartment? Like a normal person who doesn't always look like she was dressed personally by Yves St. Laurent?

    • Shane: (re: Alice's script for breaking up with Tonya) It's karmically wrong. It's gonna come back at you if you and Dana wind up together. Alice: Alright, Yoda needs to give me some better advice, or Yoda needs to shut the fuck up.

    • (Dana's on the phone with Alice, Tonya is listening in the background.) Dana: No, Alice, I haven't told her yet. Stop pressuring me! Tonya: Honey, who is that? Dana: Huh? My mom. It's my mom... She makes me feel so pressured when she, when she... when she calls me to, um, wish me good luck!

Shirin Neshat was born in Iran but she migrated to the United States after the Islamic Revolution in 1979. In her photographs she depicts women and their status in the Iranian and Muslim culture. When Bette meets Helena at the gallery, she is looking at a large picture of a veiled woman with scripture all over her face, holding the long barrel of a gun in front of her. The piece is called Rebellious Silence (1994).
