    • Shane: I learned early on that if you want to avoid that big mess that sucks and fucks with your life... you just keep it simple. Bette: You mean like sex with no emotional entanglements? Shane: (laughing) Right. That's just me. I don't think that applies to you, you're a... very well-rounded individual. Bette: (laughs) I don't know. I think... I just might like to study at your feet, Shane.

    • Tonya: She always wants what I want more than what she wants. Right? Dana: It's true, I do. Shane: (at Tonya and Dana, fake smile) So nice. So lesbian.

    • Alice: Joyce Wischnia is the leading gay civil rights attorney in L.A. Shane: Ah, Jesus, Al, you and your fucking "best of" lists. Bette and Tina don't need that. Alice: Well, I wasn't really thinking about Bette, I was thinking about Tina. Fine. What do you think she needs? Shane: I don't know. A lap dance, maybe. Not a fucking lawyer.

    • Alice: I'm gonna try that toffee nut caramel soy frappuccino drink. Shane: No, no, no, no. No. Tonya ordered it yesterday, it was lethal. Alice: Too bad she didn't keel over and die... Oh, I'm sorry, was that too brutally frank and honest for you?

    • Robin: So, um... you don't want to be in a relationship? Jenny: No, I don't. Robin: You just wanna sleep with people. Make them fall in love with you, so you can fuck with their heads. Jenny: No, that's not what I want. Robin: Well, that's what you did.

    • Jenny: I just put this ad in Craigslist, looking for a roommate., founded by and named after Craig Newmark, is a web bulletin board for free classified ads, including e.g. housing, jobs, and personal ads.

    • Kit: (about Mr. Ferrer) Count Dracula rides a Hog? It has been stated that Marina is an Italian contessa (countess), making Mr. Ferrer a count. That is why Kit refers to him as perhaps the most well-known (and largely fictional) count, Count Dracula. Hog is a nickname for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, formed from the initials of Harley Owners Group (HOG), a club of people who own a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

    • Charlotte Birch: Miss Schecter has written a story called Thus Spoke Sarah Schuster. Jenny's pen name and the name of her submission essay is a take on the book Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche.
