  • Quotes

    • Weird Shorts Lady: Are those coffins?
      Roxie: You bet your ass those are coffins. Would anyone like to guess what's inside them?
      Weird Shorts Lady: Corpses?
      Roxie: Eww. No. Demons. Metaphorical demons.

    • Roxie: You here for the tour, Darryl? 'Cause it's ten bucks without pie.
      Darryl: Oh no, don't mind me. I'm just here to participate in the festivities. Although I'm sure your pie would be delicious.
      Roxie: It's like you've stepped out of a seventies porno movie and into my life.

    • Roxie: Men don't hold grudges the way women do, especially if there's a chance they might get sex out of it.

    • Jamie: Why haven't you called me back?
      Penny: Because I don't want to speak to you anymore? How does dissing work in your country?

    • Joanna: I'm gonna win Will's heart. (turns to look at Will) I predict that there will be some begging involved and... perhaps a lap dance.

    • Roxie: (after she saves Darryl's life) Screw you, destiny! You're no match for Roxie Torcoletti!

    • Josh: Usually, people are most honest when they're not thinking about what they're about to say. I know this because I'm a blurter, like when I saw your feet, I noticed how much I like your toe ring. And if I wasn't mad at you, I'd probably wouldn't have mentioned it.
      Mia: You just mentioned it.
      Josh: My anger remains.

    • Kat: I am not the type of person to betray a girlfriend like that. There is a code, Will. Chicks before sticks.
      Will: I thought it was 'bros before hoes.'

    • Kat: Penny, right?
      Penny: Backstabbing slutbag, right?!

    • (after Joanna goes missing)
      Roxie: Let's call the police.
      Kat: I already did! You think I would choose psychic vision over cops?!
      Roxie: Are you always this bitchy when you're freaking out?
      Kat: Sometimes.

    • Penny: (to Jamie) You confuse me... with your musky man smell and your accent that makes me want to throw you down on a bed and eat you like a crumpet. And I don't even know what a crumpet is.

    • Roxie: I guess the lesson is I need to figure out how to understand these visions more specifically if I'm going to change the future.
      Bun: You can't change the future. There are things that have been set in motion which cannot be undone. We can't change destiny... no matter how hard we try.

    • Will: Kat's the one who tried to walk through fire to get to you.
      Joanna: You tried to walk through fire?
      Kat: I never really had girlfriends before. I'm still figuring out boundaries.

    • Joanna: Oh! if my life is a doughnut, Kat, you would be the creamy filling. You know, if it was a pizza, you'd be the cheese. If it was a roast beef sandwich--
      Kat: You are really hungry, aren't you?

    • Pastor Dunn: The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

      This is a line from the Gospel of Matthew 26:40-42, which reads: "What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

    • Chad: Whatever happened to standing by your man?
      Roxie: I don't know. Are we suddenly in a country western song?

      "Stand by Your Man" is a 1968 country song by Tammy Wynette and Billy Sherrill.
