    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Bob: Sounds to me like you're stuck in the traditional male dichotomy. Do you eat it at work, so you can keep providing, but in the process lose the man that you are? Or do you stand up for yourself, walk out on the job, but compromise the man that you are as husband and provider?
        David: Oh my God. You're absolutely right.
        Bob: Maybe you just need to accept one side or the other, instead of being torn between them. Either a totally useless D-Man but money-making eunich, or the unemployed stud muffin your woman fell in love with. Let's chant.
        David: How do you know all this?
        Bob: I used to work for a different kind of massage company. I've spent a lot of time with men.

      • Bob: ...Are you under a lot of stress?
        David: Oh, not, uh... not particularly. Well, I--I--I suppose I was just looked over for a promotion, so my boss could give it to a woman who was brought in over my head and who goes around giving out motivational rocks.

      • Bob: Your chakras are a mess.
        David: Oh my God, I knew it was something horrible! ... What the hell's a chakra?

      • Adam: Really? He's impotent?!
        David: No. No. He's--he's not at all what you said. It's just that he seems to have lost the old, uh... knack. Momentarily.
        Adam: How momentarily?
        David: Eight days, seven nights.
        Adam: Man. You know, all joking aside, I may not be the right guy to ask. I really don't know that much about it. To be honest, I think you have to be senile to be impotent.

      • Shelley: So, what are you saying? I should get married?
        Karen: Maybe. Eventually. At least you know what you've got then. Don't you ever listen to Dr. Laura?

      • Shelley: And it's got an extra bedroom! That could come in handy!
        Landlady: Yeah. Someday you might want one each.

      • David: A rock. Thank you.
        Ellen: It's for your desk. It says something on it that I'd like you to remember every day.
        David: Risk.
        Ellen: It's what this company's all about.
        David: Well, I'm impressed that you figured that out in your five minutes with the company...

      • Landlady: It's a nice apartment. Perfect for newlyweds.
        Shelley: We're...we're not actually...
        Adam: Newlyweds.
        Shelley: ...or any weds. We're not...we're not wed at all.
