  • Quotes

    • Erica: When you're a kid, being a grownup looks so easy. Nobody tells you it's harder than it looks, that those feelings that you have that you don't measure up, that you're not keeping pace, they never go away. What do you do when you feel like you're the only kid in a room full of adults? Well, the only thing you can do, you smile, you step up, and you try your best to fit in.

    • Erica: There comes a point when you realize, the truth is this: Being grownup is simply knowing who you are and having the courage to be that person, warts and all.

    • Jenny: You know, a baby shower is just basically rewarding somebody for having sex. I have sex all the time. Where is my reward?
      Erica: I think it's the "having sex" part.

    • Dr. Tom: I think it's a shame you're not enjoying your bat mitzvah. It is a one-in-a-lifetime event.
      Erica: Twice, if you're me.
      Dr. Tom: That's true.
