  • Quotes

    • Hank: (to Karen, after getting her the job to work on Todd Carr's house) Wanna jump my bones now, or hold out for a situation with a little more back support?

    • Becca: (to Hank) You know it's all well and good to talk about happy endings, but if a person can't deliver, if he keeps screwing up, well eventually, I guess you kinda just have to say, "fuck you," or words to that effect.

    • Marcy: You know, I'm bad with mechanical things.
      Charlie: Tell that to my missing nipple. You took of like twelve layers of skin.
      Marcy: I'm sorry, nipple.

    • Marcy: (Discussing a threesome with Karen) I don't want to go where Hank has been! I mean, he probably left booby-traps up there like the Vietcong.

    • Todd Carr: Do you know why I wanted to work with you again, Moody? Because when you're not wallowing in narcissistic despair, you're the rarest thing this town has to offer. Someone with some goddamn vision.

    • Hank: (To Todd Carr) You got me all wrong. You see, I try to live in an ivory tower, but a tide of shit is constantly beating at its walls.
      Karen: Don't be impressed. He stole that from Flaubert.

    • Hank: How the f*** do you option a blog? What is there to option? The title? The font?

    • Marcy: What is a marriage if not an opportunity to mock someone through thick and thin while simultaneously exploring your deepest, darkest sexual desires?

    • Mia's Teacher: You think I wanted Sylvia Plath to come over here and go all Bell Jar on me?

    • Hank: (To Charlie) I know you Hebrews do things a little differently, but I checked a menage a trois was not a pitstop on the road to redemption.

    • Hank: (To Becca) Just because something is bleak doesn't necessarily make it true.

    • Hank: What are you listening to there? A little falling asleep music? A little Joni Mitchell? Blood On The Tracks?
      Becca: Death Cab For Cutie.
      Hank: Wow, you really know how to hurt a guy.

  • Allusions

    • Karen: (referring to their old house in New York) You hated that place!
      Hank: Yeah, but you loved it. Just like you love fucked up architecture like this, and David Hockney, and gigantic fucking earrings, and the complete and utter cliche of driving west on Mulholland at sunset.

      David Hockney is a British artist who has worked in photography and painting, among other areas. He completed most of his major works in the 1960s and 70s.

    • Becca: (reading aloud from a book) Nothing Gold Can Stay. Nature's first green--
      Hank: Just stop. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

      Nothing Gold Can Stay is a poem written by Robert Frost in 1923. It is one of his shortest poems, with just eight lines, but critics consider it among Frost's best pieces of poetry.

    • Hank: (to Todd Carr) You got me all wrong. You see, I try to live in an ivory tower, but a tide of shit is constantly beating at its walls.
      Karen: Don't be impressed, he stole that from Flaubert.

      Gustave Flaubert was French novelist who is best known for his first novel, Madame Bovary, which was published in 1857. Hank's quote came from a letter that Flaubert wrote to Ivan Turgenev, a fellow novelist, in 1872.

    • Girl, Interrupted

      The episode title is a play on the movie "Girl, Interrupted", starring Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie.
      David Duchovny was also in an episode of "Sex and the City", which alluded to the movie, titled "Boy, Interrupted".

    • Mia's Teacher: You think I wanted Sylvia Plath to come over here and go all Bell Jar on me?

      The Bell Jar is Sylvia Plath's thinly veiled autobiography in which the main character, Esther, takes an overdose of sleeping pills.

    • Hank: Stay gold, Pony Boy.

      This is a reference to the movie (or novel) The Outsiders. In it, Johnny gives Pony Boy that poem by Robert Frost. Stevie Wonder sings a musical version of it during the closing credits.

    • Hank: So I'm told by the Fredo Corleone of agents.

      In Mario Puzo's novel "The Godfather", Frederico "Fredo" Corleone is one of the three sons of a powerful Mafia family.
