  • Quotes (12)

    • Dana: My friends said that they thought that you would think I was a geek if, you know, if I wore a dress. Lara: So, I am a geek. Dana: No, I'm a geek. For letting my friends tell me what to wear.

    • Shane: Lace, what are you doing? Lacey: Whatever I want. Isn't that what you do?

    • Shane: Look, Lace, you're beautiful. And I like you a lot. But... I like a lot of people. Lacey: What does she have that I don't have? Shane: Nothing. It's not about having something or not having something.

Lara: (smiling, calm) I'm not disfigured. Dana: But I could've killed you! When you were (makes chopping motions)... you know... Lara: It happens all the time. Dana: Well, should we call a doctor? Lara: (giggles) Dana! (she holds up her hand, counting off fingers) Second-degree burn from the Béchamel sauce. Run-away shish-kabob. An attack from a particularly hostile live lobster, and, um, electric can-opener. Dana: Is there anything I can do? Lara: You could kiss it and make it better.
