  • show Description
  • Carrie, Shannon and Denise were three lifelong friends living in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Now in their twenties and working together as waitresses in a local restaurant, they longed for something more. Carrie was the peacemaker who not only intervened in the lives of her friends, but also her family. Shannon was the slutty one, who'd dated all of the men in town once (and was working her way through them again). Denise was the neurotic one, newly married to couch-potato Ryan, the father of her baby. Kurt was Carrie's best friend, who lusted after her. Marge was the crotchety owner of the diner where the girls worked, and Jesse was Marge's inept son.moreless

    • [To Carrie referring to Denise and Shannon fighting.] Marge: You're worried about your friends aren't you honey? I'd be worried about them too, except one, I'm working and two, I don't give a rat's ass.

    • Denise: Well, I'm going to kill him. Carrie: What's going on? Denise: Ryan wants to postpone the wedding. Seems he didn't realize that the Lakers are playing the Celetics that night. Carrie: Come on, Denise it's just pre-wedding jitters. Ryan's going to marry you. Denise: No, he won't, because he'll be dead.

    • Denise: Ryan wants to get a sleazy stripper for his bachelor party. Ryan: It’s not sleazy sleazy. It’s fun sleazy. Denise: What’s the difference? Ryan: Hundred bucks.

    • Marge: Hey! What were all these shrimp doing in the trash? Shannon: They were sitting out in the sun all day. Marge: Answer the question.

    • Carrie: You're such a slut. Shannon: I am not a slut...I'm just a quick judge of character.

    • Jesse: Got that spill on 14, Mom. Marge: Jesse, I told you not to call me that. Jesse: Sorry. I thought that was just at home.
