  • With all the roller coaster ups and downs of the main characters being more or less ongoing, the introduction of Penelope (Kellie Waymire), the zoo worker, was a delight.

    • (Mahandra rings the Tyler's doorbell, and Aaron answers the door in his boxers) Aaron: What'd they lose now, an alligator? Mahandra: I accept your challenge. Aaron: Ok. (He steps forward. They come together and share a tender kiss) Mahandra: I'm not laughing. Aaron: No, you're trembling.

    • Savage: (Commenting on the fact that the birds are having sex in Sharon's car) How unusual that they'd chose a car... Mahandra: Why? That's where I first did it.

    • Eric: Feel that? Jaye: It's your heart... It's beating. Eric: Know what that means? Jaye: Um... You're not dead?

    • Aaron: What is she doing with those birds anyway? Is she gonna use their babies in a ritual? Mahandra: Only thing that's gonna get sacrificed tonight is the heart of a certain unsuspecting bartender. Aaron: Ah. Right. He did seem like a man marked for heartbreak. Mahandra: You saw it, too? Aaron: Well, I mean--he was with her. Why does she do that to them anyway? You know that exchange student from Prague still e-mails me about her. Mahandra: She's like a bug zapper. Long as I've known her guys have been throwing themselves at her. Maybe if she was more like some of us less magnetic types she wouldn't be so quick to throw 'em back. Aaron: I think you're magnetic. Mahandra: Yeah, well, for all my innate magnetism I haven't really been attracting a lot of the brothers in the greater Niagara region lately. Aaron: I'm somebody's brother. Mahandra: Yeah, right. My best friend's brother. Like that's gonna happen! Aaron: Why not? Mahandra: Well, for one thing if we ever even tried to kiss, we'd both never stop laughing. Aaron: Bet we could get through it. Mahandra: Doubtful. Aaron: I challenge you. I challenge you to a kiss. Mahandra: Shut up!

    • Eric: (After Jaye attacks him with a kiss) Don't mean to look a gift mouth in the mouth... but what was that for? Jaye: It was uh... for the birds. Eric: The birds? Jaye: I thought maybe your pheromones were chasing them away again, so I figured if we dissipated them... Eric: Oh. Good theory -- (leaning in) For the birds... Jaye: The birds...
