    • Freddie: Hey, would you like to go out sometime?
      Gina: Ok, sure.
      Freddie: Let me get your number.
      Gina: Ah, you keep folding and I'll write it down.
      Freddie: So, ah, maybe we'll go out next week. (Takes number from Gina) Thanks.
      Gina: Sure. Thanks for folding my laundry.

    • Gina: Oh, my God. Freddie Moreno!
      Freddie: Hi...?
      Gina: You're not gonna remember me. Gina Astacio. (Freddie still looks confused) Roosevelt High!
      Freddie: Oh, right, right, right. You were a couple years after me.
      Gina: Mm-hmm, what are you doing back here? I thought you lived in some fancy place up on the drive now.
      Freddie: Pfft, I come back here all the time. You know, do some laundry. Grab a polish with the works at Diggity Dogs.
      Gina: They closed Diggity Dogs two years ago. After the finger incident.
      Freddie: Yeah, that would hurt anyone. I guess I don't get down here as much as I'd like (picks up a pink bra).

    • Sofia: Oh, hey, Freddie? While Zoey's getting ready for school, you can boot last night's conquest out the door.

      Chris: Freddie, I figured out why those girls blew us off last night.

    • Sophia: So Allison, how's that bout of depression coming along?
      Allison: Oh, it's good. Good, yeah, I think I'm really getting the hang of it.

    • Allison: Ooh, are these new markers? Let me get a whiff.

    • Chris: (horrible imitation of Walkin) We wasted an entire night. What were we thinking?
      Freddie: (horrible imitation of Walkin) We were thinking we where gonna get laid. We were dead wrong.

    • Trisha: Hey guys, you know how this place sucks? (the restuarant)
      Chris: Blows completely. What do you need?

    • Chris: Dude, just a couple more clubs, all right? Then there won't be anything left to do in Chicago but have sex with us.

    • Trisha: So, when are we going somewhere?

      Freddie: Don't worry about it, she's alerting the tribunal.

      Chris: (to Krystal) Okay, I wanna show you my round bed, it rotates!

    • Chris: You know, I-I think I'm gonna go upstairs and check out the movie times on-line. They're-they're so much easier to read on my $25,000 plasma screen.
      Krystal: You are so hot!

    • Krystal: (about Chris's apartment) Wow. This place is A-ma-zing!
      Chris: That's just the first floor!

    • Krystal: Hey, were you serious before? Will you really buy me a water bed?
      Chris: Are you kidding? I will buy you an entire set of water furniture if that's what you want.
