  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • (Bianca confesses to Kat about kissing Joey at the party)
      Kat: Either live with the guilt or tell Chastity.
      Bianca: I would, but I prefer to keep my intestines inside my body.

    • Joey: (holding a newspaper) Good news, baby. The war in Azerbijackistan is over.
      Chastity: (to Bianca) Okay, his behavior's becoming so erratic. He's like my grandma before we put her on meds.

    • Walter: Oh, my God! Do you mean to tell me the students have to leave their Uzis and heroin at home?
      Kat: Dad, this isn't a joke.
      Walter: How about knives and crack?

    • (after Cameron agreed to become friends again with Bianca)
      Michael: 'You're my best friend'? First, you already got a best friend. (points to himself) And second, she's just not that into you.
      Cameron: Hey, she's still transitioning into seeing me as a viable heterosexual.

    • Cameron: Haven't you ever known something deep in your heart?
      Michael: I'm 15. I know things deep in my pants.

    • Joey: I don't even know if she ever loved me. Not the real me. I was just this gorgeous status accessory, like Paris Hilton's poodle.
      Bianca: Girls like Chastity don't like other girls playing with their poodles... even if they've given their poodles away. And Chastity can be really mean.
      Joey: That's why I'm ready to be with someone really sweet, like you. Take you, for example.

    • Chastity: (talking to his father on the phone) Ditch these stupid uniforms, or I'll tell Mommy how I found out... that your executive assistant doesn't wear a bra.

    • Walter: I don't get this, Kat. You always wanted to go to an Ivy League school.
      Kat: They'll appreciate my social conscience.
      Walter: No. They'll label you a problem student. You know how competitive it is. They'll look for some reason to reject you. It's like enlisting in the army and writing down, 'Oh, by the way, I'm gay.'
