    • Shane: (to Cherie) You know... my entire life, people have said that... I would become a psychopath if I didn't learn how to feel. But I wanna know, Cherie, what the fuck is so great about feeling? Because I finally let myself. And I feel like my heart's been completely ripped out.

    • Alice: (about Tonya) Allright, I think she killed Mr. Piddles. That's what. (Shane rolls her eyes.) Tina: Oh, god, why would she do that? Alice: Maybe she didn't like the competition! Shane: It's because Mr. Piddles was gonna inherit Dana's fortune and Tonya murdered him so she could be the next in line, right? Right? Drop it. (Shane walks off.) Alice: She's so fucking cranky.

    • Ivan: Do you know what you're looking for, Kit? Kit: No. No, not in the big picture sense that you mean. Ivan: Then how do you know I can't give it to you?

    • Marina: I would like to propose a toast, um, to Mr. Piddles. Bette: To Mr. P, kitty, well-loved furry feline, we will miss you.

    • Shane: I had this insane idea that you and I could be together. Because it felt real.
      Cherie: It was a delusion.
      Shane: Then I'm delusional. Because, I swear you felt the same way about me.

    Trivia (3)

    • Nitpick: When Robin, who's been going out with Marina, finds out that she was the one who broke Jenny and Tim up, she insists that she had no idea who Marina was. Yet when Jenny told her coming-out story at the Dinah Shore weekend (in episode 1-11: Looking Back), Robin was there to listen when Jenny specifically named Marina. Shouldn't she have connected the dots or at least gotten suspicious?

    • In the "Provocations" opening, when Shane goes outside for Cherie, and Steve threatens her, Cherie is talking to the same couple who saw Bette & Candace making out in the hotel stairs.

    • Opening Teaser: Los Angeles, California -- Three Days Ago: As Candace pulls into a parking lot, Bette gets in the car with her and says: "Take me somewhere". The Connection: Later, we see them checking in at a hotel.
