  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Marcy: No matter how gruesome or horrible the murder, you can always find someone who'll buy the house.

    • Vivien: You know, we want to make sure everything's okay with the baby. You didn't see anything unusual--hooves or anything?
      Ben: What?

    • Marcy: Everything was meticulous restored by a couple of the previous homos. Owners. Homeowners.
      Escandarian: Fags have such a great eye for detail, don't they?
      Marcy: A queer eye.

    • Larry: Oh, I see. It's because of my affliction, isn't it. Sometimes I wonder, if I knew how much I was going to be shunned, if I would have run back onto that burning school bus to save those children. Now this crudité is making my mouth dry. I'm going to have a little glass of this Chardonnay, and then you may show me the house.
      Marcy: (drawing her gun) Put down the stemware.
      Vivien: What are you doing?
      Marcy: A woman in my line can't be too careful. There are a lot of minority men in this city who would like nothing more than to ravage me on this countertop.

    • Constance: Used to be no one was from here. People came here to escape their pasts. find a plot of land that not even a red Indian had set foot on and make a new life for yourself.
      Escandarian: Give me a number. I want history, I'll talk to Gene Autry.
      Constance: But now there are no more virgin plots. We live on top of each other. That's California now... and that's the world. there is no more space, and yet it it's human nature to want to claim your own turf. So build away, we do. every time you put up one of these... monstrous temples to the gods of travertine, you're building on top of someone else's life.
      Escandarian: I'm a developer. I improved on the past. I build a new future.
      Constance: You should show some respect. You're not an archaeologist. You should stop unearthing while you're ahead. It only brings a haunting. We have a responsibility as caretakers to the old lands... to show some respect.

    • Escandarian: There are three reasons I deal with women: sex, money, or making me sandwiches. And unless you're planning on going into my kitchen and slapping some ham between two slices of bread... this conversation is over.

  • Allusions

    • Larry: Perchance to dream. For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come.
      Referencing the play Hamlet (approx. 1600) by William Shakespeare. In it, Hamlet performs what is typically considered a soliloquy, the famous "to be or not to be" speech of Act Three, Scene One.
