  • Quotes

    • Ally: I know I've got it great, really. Good job, good friends, loving family. Total freedom and long bubble baths. What else could there be?

    • Richard: Ally, you can't just attack somebody over a snack treat. That's not a Fishism. That's just a rule of common sense.

    • Elaine: They subpoenaed me.
      Ally: What?!
      Richard: Who?!
      Elaine: The Board. They want me to appear to talk about Ally.
      Ally: You?!
      Richard: Why?!
      Elaine: I don't know. Well, don't look so worried. I'm on your side.
      Ally: Well-- well, that's what worries me.

    • Renée: (to Ally) I don't mean this in an insulting way, but you're not a sexually spontaneous person. You won't even go to bed with a man unless you storyboard it first.

    • Ally: Do you think I'm nuts?
      Whipper: No. But I'm not sure you have two feet on the ground either.
      Ally: Do you mean some people do?

    • Ally: How did I get to be such a mess so soon in my life?
      Billy: You've always been ahead of your time.

    • Billy: Some would see the law in black and white. They'd do fine. Some can't tell the black from white. They'd flunk. Then some could tell the black from the white and see all the grays. And they'd be doomed forever. Ally's faced with some of that doom. She sees grays. She tries to make sense of an arena that's messy.

    • Ally: Who wants to be balanced, Billy? Balance is way overrated!
