    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Max: Okay Whoa! Hold up ladies, you don't get a bitch pass just cause you're old. (ladies looked shocked) Yes That's right I said it. You come in here with your gangster grannie attitude thinking you can get away with dumping all over the lonely gypsy waitress. No way. At this diner we don't discriminate due to age. If you're going to act like an ass, I'm going to treat you like an ass. No matter how close that ass is riding to the floor. Now I'll wipe off the table and we'll take it from the top. Hi I'm Max. Who wants tapioca? (all four ladies raise their hands) That's more like it, save the disappointment for the grandkids.

      • Caroline: Hi, I'm Caroline, and this is my business partner, Max. And you are?
        Semhar: Semhar.
        Max: Oh gees.
        Caroline: Such a pretty name.
        Semhar: It means "light of the tiger" in Sanskrit.
        Max: Oh Gees.
        Semhar: It's my yoga name.
        Max: Help me, God!

      • Caroline: I love this place! It's like Paris in the 20s.
        Max: More like poseurs in their 20s.

      • Max: Sister, you may think sex is the last thing on your mind, but you turned your bed into a vagina!
        Caroline: Do you think my vagina has curtains?
        Max: I don't know how long it's been.

      • Oleg: A woman like you needs a real man! You know what they say, "Once you go Ukraine you will scream in sex pain!"
        Max: That probably lost some of it's sensual appeal in translation, but thanks anyways Oleg.

      • Max: Oleg, from now on you may call me 'Countess Max of the Fabulous Cupcakes'
        Oleg: And you may call me 'Sir Oleg of the amazing Party in my Pants'

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Max: Shh! Keep it down. Do you want to wake up tomorrow with Chestnut's head in your vagina bed?

        Referencing a scene from Godfather Part I where the mob puts a prize winning horse's head in someone's bed that crosses the mob.

      • Max: Hold up Flava Flav.

        Flava Flav is an American rapper and TV personality.

      • Max: Look Battlefield Earth!

        This is a reference to the 2000 film Battlefield Earth staring John Travolta and directed by Roger Christian. In the film almost every character has long puffy dreadlocks, like the woman Max says this line to in the show.
