    • Randy: (after Marina leaves the party) Wow. Hey, just one question. Who is in love with that woman? Carol: Count me in! Tim: I'm only human. The woman has a charm that goes way beyond the fact that she's just... stunning. Carol: Yes. Jenny? Don't you have just a little crush on Marina? Jenny: No.

    • Alice: (seeing Tim) Do you guys think he knows? Bette: Knows what? Alice: That his girlfriend is making the team with Marina.

    • Alice: I don't know, you guys, you're really cutting edge, now. Lesbian moms. Biracial child. Bette: We are pretty in, Alice. Alice: Well, you're going to have no trouble getting that kid into the Center for Early Education. It's gonna be, like, diversity poster child.

    • Shane: So, which one is she? (Dana points out Lara to her.) Shane Wow. Very nice, Dana. (Dana gives Shane a dirty look. Don't you dare.) No! I'm here for you. I'm here for you.

    • Shane: (about Lara) Ask her out. Bette: No, no, no, Dana cannot do that. And that's totally understandable. You don't want to put yourself out there for someone who maybe is just being nice to you, because, you know, you're an important person at the club. Dana: Exactly. Alice: Please don't encourage her. Bette: It's okay, Dana. We are gonna take care of this. Alice: You mean? Bette: I mean. Dana: What? Bette: We are going to deploy a mission to ascertain the disposition and intent of one Miss Lara Perkins.

    • Opening Teaser: None.

    Allusions (2)

    • Alice: Anytime you get a group of gay girls together, you are guaranteed someone slept with someone else. Who has slept with someone else, who slept with someone else, and on and on. Marc: Mm-hmm. Alice: Name any lesbian you know. I can link her to me in, like, six moves. "The Chart" is based on concepts of "six degrees of separation" and "small world phenomenon", used in social network theory. According to the theory, every person in the world can be linked to any other person through a short chain of acquaintances, on average through six links.

    • Title: Let's Do It The episode title is taken from the song Let's Do It, Let's Fall in Love by Ella Fitzgerald, which is heard during the closing scenes. The title also refers to Bette and Tina's decision to make a baby.
