    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (16)

      • Elaine: (after hearing that Ally broke up with Glenn) Oh, Ally, I just want you to know that I am here for you.
        Ally: Yes, and what am I gonna do about that?

      • Ally: Should I love John Cage? He just represents so many of the things I want in a man and he would be the greatest of fathers.
        Milter: Well, Alison, you're begging the assumption that love can be voluntary. True love can often be reduced to three anecdotal questions: How would you feel about raising children with him? How would you feel about sitting in front of a fire and talking about life and a movie, perhaps a book you just read? And how would you feel about him suckling a little whipped cream out of the cup-pith of your navel. Ah yes! Romance would have begotten a different expression on that one.
        Ally: But does true love have to be romantic? I mean, really?
        Milter: For most people… no. For you? Well... I have a test for that one, too. And answer me honestly. A lot of my patients lie! (Ally nods.) When you're home and the phone rings, what's the very first thought that goes through your head? Rrrring!
        Ally: Larry.
        Milter: So much for John Cage.

      • Raymond: Call me an "oink" but I think he still loves her. I don't think either one of us is getting any tonight.
        Ally: Oink!

      • John: I know you regard this as silly, but I used to think in a prior life I was Elvis.
        Richard: But, eh John, Elvis lived in this life.
        John: Ah, there lies the rub.

      • Raymond: You're cute, in a slutty way.
        Elaine: And men on the rebound just love me.

      • Ally: You seem sad.
        John: Well, Richard violated my hole.
        Ally: Hmmm. Well, let it heal?

      • Ling: It used to be women stripped naked to have a chance at greatness, now you have to do great things to have a chance to strip naked.

      • Ally: Did you, uh, strip naked for a semi-nude layout?
        Ling: My character wasn't growing enough.

      • Nelle: Believe that? Treat people rotten enough and eventually somebody will put you on television.

      • Ally: Elaine, it's Jenny's birthday. Do you think that you could possibly do a number in the bar?
        Elaine: Absolutely.
        Ally: Aw, you're such a giver.

      • Richard: A judge can't order that.
        Nancy: Well, he did.
        Richard: Well, that's against that, uh, thing... tell her, Corretta.
        Corretta: The Constitution.
        Richard: Exactly.

      • Glenn: Why not sleep with me if for no other reason than to find out what you were missing out on in college?
        Ally: Hm. Well, uh, statements like that convince that I was missing nothing.

      • Ally: I'm sure he's not going to want some woman who just jumps into bed with every Tom, Dick and Larry... Harry.

      • Richard: Ling's syndicated television show begins airing today, for all of you who longed to control the volume when she speaks.

      • Ally: I'm afraid that he's gonna think I'm one of those... y'know...
        Milter: Penis taunters?
        Ally: Yes.

      • Ally: When I dance I can get...
        Ally: ...sizzling.
