      • Maxine: (laughing at Gillian's story, and slightly tipsy) Ah Amy Hi! We've been drinking.
        Amy: I can see that Mom, um everyone this is Bruce, my Court Services Officer.

      • Maxine: And this is a very nice gay man, Justin, whom we just met. And this is my son, Vincent, who isn't gay. He's a writer.

      • Maxine: I was just down in the basement...Hooking a rug.

      • Maxine: After 40 years of cooking Thanksgiving dinner, even the word 'Thanksgiving' makes me mad.

      • Vincent: Something smells good.
        Amy: That would be Socrates' breath.

      • Amy: You could be a little more sympathetic.
        Bruce: I don't do sympathetic.
        Amy: Of course not.

      • Maxine: You know what I read the other day? That Denver, Colorado is moving closer to San Francisco, California by an inch every ten years.
        Amy: Is this relevant?
        Maxine: An inch every ten years. That's the way the Rocky Mountains were formed, and that's the way the world changes. Not by stamping your foot to get your way. Not even by the bang of a gavel. It's by the choices that we make, you know, all the time. You do what you think is right, every time. Slowly, the world starts to change. That's how we leave our imprint on life -- an inch every ten years.
        Amy: Where do you come up with this stuff?
        Maxine: I don't know; just pops into my head. It's a curse, really.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The title of this episode, "The persistence of Tectonics" is appropriate. Tectonics refers to the constant but slow movement of the earth's plates.
