  • Quotes

    • Marin: They say patience is a virtue and, like most virtues, we don't know if we possess it until it's been tested. If we are lucky, we have someone to take that test with us. And if we can pass that test, if we can wait long enough, we just might find the reward greater than we ever expected. The funny thing about waiting is it always seems the more we want something the longer we have to wait for it. Deciding to wait out the long haul shouldn't be taken lightly, but it is an easier decision to live with than others.

    • Celia: Do you mind? Everyone's enjoying the view and you're taking a leak in the punch bowl.

    • Stuart Maxson: What I lack in immediacy I make up for in staying power.

    • Jane: Boyfriend with no sex. All the work with none of the perk.

    • (after Patrick and Annie retake a relationship quiz)
      Annie: Please close your book and put your pencil down.
      Patrick: Okay, just a sec. Done.
      Annie: All right, now for the fun part.
      Patrick: Good, I was hoping for a fun part.

    • Jane: (holding up a sexy top to show to Marin) What do you think? Snow Expo or Ho Expo?

    • (After Annie sees Patrick make a move on Marin)
      Marin: Annie, wait. Let me explain.
      Annie: If you think that I am just going to roll over and let you steal my Patrick, then you have another thing coming. I have waited too long for him to let Chinese curses, lightning, and your feminine wiles take him away from me.
