    • Kat: Well, I'm hiring that lawyer.
      Roxie: No way.
      Joanna: Get out.
      Kat: Yep. Daryl's friend from New York, she is flying in tomorrow.
      Roxie: Wow. Fancy-schmansy.
      Kat: Oh, no, no. I'm not going for fancy. I am going for fierce as in take no prisoners. I am done trying to be nice.
      Joanna: Yeah, screw nice! You want to take him for all he's got. Just grab him by the balls!
      Roxie: Joanna, anything you'd like to share with the group?
      Joanna: Uh, not really. Just that my, um, ex-fiancee showed up today in town with his new fiancee. Did I tell you guys that I was left at the altar? 'Cause I was. Yeah, it was awesome.

    • Joanna: (rambling to Morgan) Boy! I wish I could stay and chat, but unfortunately, I'm-- I'm very late... For work, not like, 'oops! I missed a period, late' which would be pretty impossible right now. Not-- not that I'm not having a lot of sex, I definitely am. Just, you know, safe sex-- safer sex.

    • Penny: You wore a Vera Chang wedding dress?
      Joanna: I couldn't afford Vera Wang.

    • Joanna: (talking about her ex-fiance Morgan) Penny, that man took six years of my life! I thought we were soulmates and then he pooped on my heart.

    • Kat: I want that man to feel pain!
      Darryl: I must admit it is thrilling to watch you finally getting angry, Kat. And I love cooking up revenge strategies, but... there is a certain breed of people who plays this game better than others.
      Kat: Mafia?

    • Penny: (to Joanna) I'm buying you a muzzle.

    • Kat: You know what?! We live in a town with all kinds of silly, witchy, tourist-y bull crap. This is got to be related somehow. It's just another silly, witchy, tourist-y, bull-crappy symbol.

    • (Kat meets her divorce lawyer for the first time)
      Ivanka: Your dress is perfect.
      Kat: Oh, really?
      Ivanka: So dowdy. Almost like a tortured pilgrim growing that hair all dry and desperate for highlights. I love it. You're the perfect victim.

    • Morgan: Do you know that not a day goes by that I don't kick myself for what I did to you?
      Joanna: Where? Someplace soft, I hope.

    • Joanna: Do you think my boobs are weird?
      Penny: No. They're beautiful.
      Joanna: I am good in bed, right?
      Penny: I-- I have no idea.

    • Morgan: It would be wrong to get married with someone when I'm sleeping with someone else. I may be a lot of things, but I don't cheat... (notices Penny rolling her eyes and looking at Joanna) except with my soulmate, obviously.
      Penny: Awww, he's got boundaries.

    • Joanna: (runs after Morgan) Oh, and by the way, you also have terrible bacne, a mild case of halitosis, and miniscule man-berries.
      Morgan: I happen to be an avid cyclist!
      Joanna: Teeny-tiny testes. We're talking smurf-sized!
