      Eric: For bipolar show-and-tell? Okay.

    • Susan: I so need a margarita. Are you ready?
      Chen: I think I'm gonna pass.
      Susan: Oh come on. I hate drinking alone. I mean I'll do it, but...

    • Pratt: A 12 year old cross-dresser?

    • Eric: Are you alone?
      Abby: No, mom's here too.
      Eric: (to Maggie) Why'd you bring her?
      Maggie: She's worried about you, Eric.

      Abby: Just hold on, alright?
      Eric: I don't want you in my life right now.
      Abby: What?
      Eric: (to Maggie) Are you coming in? (Maggie goes inside and Eric tries to close the door)

      Eric: Move your hand.
      Abby: You need help.
      Eric: I don't want to hurt you.

      Abby: Someone you can rely on and trust!
      Eric: That's not you anymore, okay? You don't understand.
      Abby: Yes, I do!
