  • Quotes

    • Zack: Where is she?
      Joy: I beg your pardon?
      Zack: (sees Victoria) Oh my god! Ms. Chase, my name is Zack Adams. Like yourself, I am a devotee of the craft of thespis.
      Joy: Shocker.

    • Victoria: You are a terrible director, and I know a thing or two about directors. I took a class called 'A Thing or Two About Directors.'

    • Zack: That's my girlfriend. I keep telling her I should have a beard.
      Victoria: Oh, I wouldn't bother.

    • Elka: My friend Sheila crashes funerals to meet men. I'm going with!
      Victoria: But you have Max.
      Elka: Just because I'm chained to the fence doesn't mean I can't bark at the guard!

    • Elka: A wise man once said, "there are no mistakes".
      Joy: That was Freud.
      Elka: I didn't get his name, it was just some old guy I spilled my soda on.

    • Zack: Our production is doomed because the soccer coach is doubling as the drama teacher due to budget cuts.
      Victoria: God, I hate jocks.
      Joy: You were married to a wide receiver.
      Victoria: I still don't know what sport that was!

    • (Melanie receives a text message)
      Melanie: Oh, it's Pete. He wants me to come meet him. But I'm telling him no, I'm spending the evening with my girlfriends, because nothing in life is as important as friendship.
      Elka: Or is it because you look like a hideous freak without your eyebrow?

    • (Melanie has just finished gushing over Pete, and there is a silence)
      Elka: Here that? It's the sound of us all turning against you!

    • Melanie: I'm really sorry that [Pete and I] have been in your face.
      Joy: And I'm sorry that I took off part of yours.
