    • Khadijah: Max, you're holding onto Kyle. You two been drinking again?

    • Synclaire: Look at her. She's just waiting for you to ask her to stay.
      Khadijah: Now how can you tell?
      Synclaire: Because I'm looking with my heart.
      Khadijah: Well, take your heart to Lens Crafters, 'cause I ain't seeing it!

    • Kyle: Come on, now, Max. You're making way too much of this.
      Max (Gasps): I could have died. That could have been it. Maxine Shaw--case closed.

    • Max: When I saw that gun swing in my face, it came to me in a flash. You never know how much time you have left on this earth. Kyle! What can I get for you? What can I buy for you? What can I do for you?
      Overton: Well, all right, then!

    • Max: Is this really gonna happen?
      (Kyle looks her in the eye and takes her hand.)
      Kyle: It's been happening.
      (Pulls her to him and kisses her.)

    • Kyle: You know, Max, you could get addicted.
      Max: Please. You may never leave.

    • Max: When you called and cancelled, I was upset. Like I'd been stood up by a real date.
      Kyle: Well, uh, this kind of feels like a real date.
      Max: Yeah. Truth be told, I've been developing a sort of sick curiosity about you.
      Kyle: Well, uh, I must admit to a certain perverse fascination with your inner workings.

    • Max: All right, Kyle! I don't know who you think you are, but I did not spend all day cooking, cleaning and hanging pictures for the first time so that you could cancel on me at the last minute.
      Kyle: But, see...
      Max: But nothing! I've had enough of this humility crap. You saved my life, and there is such a thing as being gracious.
      Kyle: Max...
      Max: Max my ass! I've got a roast that's ready, a salad that's going to wilt, and candles I plan to light. So you are coming to my house, I'm gonna stuff food down your throat and you will feel thanked! Is that clear?
      Overton: Max, you seem to have a lot of energy. Could you help us with this box?

    • Regine: So, where you from? What do you do?
      Zina: I'm from the Bronx, and I work.
      (After Regine leaves)
      Zina: Ooh. Now I understand why y'all are getting rid of her. At-ti-tude. Did she say "smooches?"

    • Max: Well, at least let me make you dinner.
      Khadijah: You're going to cook?
      Max: Yes? Yes, yes, yes! I'm gonna cook!

    • Synclaire: Oh, Khadijah, look. Look. All the good kitchen stuff belonged to Regine. She even took the lemon zester. Now we'll never know what it does.

    • Synclaire: When Buddy was a puppy, he ran away. I was so upset that I took a cigarette out of my mother's purse. Turns out Buddy was just at the groomer's, but it was too late. I was already a slave to the demon nicotine.
      Overton: Um, honey...snugglepuss, that was a long time ago.
      Synclaire: But Regine's moving out now! It's separation anxiety. I'm getting Buddy flashbacks!

    • Max: I'm just making sure she's not taking anything that's mine. I've left a lot of things here over the years.
      Khadijah: Crumbs, maybe.

    • Kyle (After Max yells at him): Yeah right. Like I'm scared of her. Like she's gonna tell me what to do. Tch. Please…I'm going.
