    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Jill: I've been looking all over town for you!
        Willow: Why?
        Jill: Well, because you didn't come home, and then Dirk called and said you didn't come and meet him.
        Willow: Oh, yeah. Well, on the way, I met some people, and we got to talking, and the next thing I knew, I was bowling with drag queens.
        Jill: Willow, why didn't you call?
        Willow: I didn't know you liked to bowl.

      • Willow: (about not calling to tell everyone where she is) What can I say? I'm not a phone person, you know? You've got to stop what you're doing, and find change, and dial all those numbers.
        Jill: Do you act this way when you're at Wilson's?
        Willow: What's wrong with the way I'm acting?
        Jill: You're not being considerate of other people's feelings. You're not taking responsibility for your actions. You're 26 years old, Willow. It's time to grow up.

      • Jill: Did you find anything out about Willow?
        Tim: Yes. I stopped by Just Herbs. It seems that Willow has a thing for ginkgo biloba. And, uh, according to her psychic Janice, in a past life, Willow was Vincent van Gogh.
        Jill: In other words, you found out nothing.
        Tim: No. I found out that in a past life, I was Mary, Queen of Scots.

      • Tim: (trying to get into a club) Hold on. Apparently, you don't know who I am. I'm Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor.
        Lance: And I'm Lance "I Hate Your Show" Smith.

      • Mark: We're going clubbing? All right!
        Jill: You can't go to the clubs. You're not old enough.
        Mark: Then what am I supposed to do?
        Tim: Find a big hole, and wait until you're 21.

      • Jill: Let's think. Assuming that Willow is okay, what would motivate her to stay out all night and not call? She wants attention. She's acting out. All of this is just a cry for help.
        Tim: Maybe there's another explanation: she's really inconsiderate.

      • Willow: (at 2:00 in the morning) Well, I am off.
        Jill: Where are you going?
        Willow: Out to breakfast with Dirk.
        Jill: You sure it's safe to go out at this hour?
        Willow: Yeah, well, I appreciate your concern, Jill, but I'll be fine. I'm not a kid.
        Jill: Oh, no, it's not a matter of how old you are. I mean, I wouldn't go out this late.
        Willow: Well, you also wouldn't get a bunch of men to take off their pants.
        Jill: Not now, but when I retire, I'll need a hobby.

      • Tim: (having stomach problems) Where do we keep the barium?
        Jill: Tim, put a cork in it.
        Tim: Well, there's an idea. Where do we keep the corks?
