  • Quotes

    • Christian: Sweetheart, everything I need to know about you is bouncing around in front of my face.

    • (in the underground garage, Michelle is accosted by a mystery woman)
      The Woman: Nice place you're working at. Classy.
      Michelle: I was… I was just going to…
      The Woman: I thought I'd surprise you. It's more fun like this. (Michelle hands over a large pile of money) I'm not even going to count it. That's how much I trust you. You look good.
      (The Woman touches Michelle's chest; Liz comes down the stairs and sees the women together)
      The Woman: Lovelier than ever.
      (Michelle and the Woman kiss)
      The Woman: Sooner than later.
      (The Woman walks off)

    • Michelle: You work for me now, OK? I own your practice and your name.
      Christian: Speaking of names, where's your husband? Isn't he the Landau in Landau Industries?
      Michelle: My husband has empowered me to make all business decisions during his recuperation. Which means I can replace you both with other highly skilled surgeons whose clientele can actually pay!

    • Matt: I didn't come here to ask your permission. I'm not a kid any more. And what I put into my body or into my mind has to be my decision. I'm committed to getting better and I've found something that I know can help me.
      Christian: What?
      Matt: It's… a new religion, but I'm gonna need some money to join. And I was hoping that I could use the money that you're throwing away on all the drugs and the shrink for this instead.
      Sean: What new religion?
      Matt: Scientology
      Christian: You're out of your freaking mind!
      Sean: It's not a group you want to get involved with, Matt. It's not going to help you.
      Matt: How do you know?
      Sean: I've read about it!
      Matt: Yeah, from people who don't have any first-hand experience!
      Christian: You're not getting a dime! In fact, all this does is prove to me that you're not taking enough drugs!

    • (Christian takes Mitchell to the lap-dancing club where Blu works)
      Christian: Listen, sweetheart. The kid's a little confused. He hasn't been with a woman in a while and I want you to remind him of what he's missing.
      Blu Mondae: No problem. I'm big with the bi guys. I'm very maternal.

    • Matt: So did you find God, or something?
      Kimber: I found my integrity. And my self-worth. And so can you.

    • Kimber: I was a total victim of my reactive mind but now I have this awareness...
      Matt: So is this like therapy?
      Kimber: No way! How many people do you know actually got better from seeing a shrink? Those people don't listen. They interpret, based on their own hang-ups, then they lay their bullshit onto their patients.

    • Christian: Did you know you were gay when you got married?
      Mitchell: I'm not sure I'm gay now. Arthur bought me a Porsche, he moved me into his guesthouse, buys me clothes, takes me to all these fancy parties. It's worth the occasional blowjob, you know?

    • Blu Mondae: (whilst having sex with Christian) I can't get taken serious on account of everyone assumes I'm just some big-titted whore. I couldn't even get a job at SeaWorld because my tits weren't 'family-friendly'.

    • Sean: Julia, I want to do an operation on the baby. We can close the cleft, reconstruct the thumb, improve his hand functioning motor skills. It may take multiple surgeries, I can't know that yet. But I want to do it soon, while he's still too young to understand, before he knows enough to be afraid of the pain.
      Julia: OK. Do it, Sean. I mean if life is this hard for a kid like Matt with 10 fingers and 10 toes, can you imagine how hard it's going to be for Connor?
      Sean: So we've decided ... on a name, I mean?
      Julia: Connor McNamara. It's a good strong name, isn't it?
      Sean: Yes.
      Julia: Like his father's.

    • Julia: When you see your happy child turn into a morose, clinically depressed young man you do whatever it takes to make him happy again before he decides he can't take it anymore.


      Christian: Why don't you just give him a lobotomy and admit you're throwing in the towel? I admit he's been high-maintenance, and with a special-needs baby on the way ... Matt's my kid and he has special needs too, and I'm not giving up on him just because his parents are.


      Sean: I don't think it matters. Matt's fully cooked. It's too late to change the ingredients now. You do what you can when you can, when there's still enough time to make a difference.

    • Mitchell: Gay, straight, bi, who gives a s--- about labels, right? A blowjob's a blowjob.
      Christian: Get out! Get out! Before I break your g-ddamn' skull!

    • Christian: Scared baby? Come on, I'd never hurt that perfectly reconstructed body of yours. It's my best work.
      Kimber: Please Christian, I can't see you anymore. You're not good for me.
      Christian: But my son is? Is that why you went after him? Or was it to get to me?
      Kimber: I didn't go after him. We met at the gym. He's miserable and lost.
      Christian: And you decided what, that you'd rescue him? Maybe put him in one of your movies? Sweet pad you've got here. What'd you do, move into snuff films?
      Kimber: I don't do that sort of work anymore. I found something much more compatible with my core values.
      Christian: Kiddie porn? Oh wait, Matt's almost 18. You must be talking about that brain suck you convinced him to join.
      Kimber: It's a religion, Christian. I needed something spiritual.
      Christian: That's BULLS---, and you know it. What we had was spiritual, Kimber. I made you see G-d everytime you came.
      Kimber: You made me see garbage Christian. I was nothing to you. I was a fixer-upper that you could throw a coat of paint on.
      Christian: You are such a freaking hypocrite. You're the one who seduced me when you realized I was a plastic surgeon who could get you everything you wanted. You were never anything more than an ambitious piece of ass.
      Kimber: You need to go. You need to go right now. How much more pain do you need to cause me before you think I've had enough.
      Christian: Look, whatever I did, whatever we did to each other, I loved you.
      Kimber: You loved your creation. You never loved me because you never saw who I really was. I was just something made up in your head.
      Christian: I see you now, Kimber. And you know what? You're dangerous. Because you're weak. You can't survive without someone or something to suck off -- a new lover, a new religion. And if you start feeding on my son, I swear, there's not one place on earth that will keep you safe from me.

    • Kimber: Talk to me about the decisions you've made in your life, right or wrong.
      Matt: Well, gee, let's see. There was getting involved with Ariel, that was a really good decision. ... When her Aryan Nation suckwad of a father held a gun to my head and gave me the choice of cutting off this guy's dick or my own ... I decided on his. Cherry's. She was a pre-op transsexual and my friend. ... You wanna hear about my best decision ever? Cherry had a gun pointed directly at that bastard. She was hesitant, unsure what to do, I should have grabbed it from her but instead she shot him in the stomach. I left him there to rot. Getting Cherry to the hospital was more important than the life of that s***-stain. You can write him care of the Florida state prison system if you like. ... Don't you get it? I've never made a decision in my life. I let my dick choose some pretty girl and I nearly got it cut off. And the whole thing with Cherry and the shooting, that was out of my hands. I never had a choice. ... I never had a choice. How did I never see that?

    • Mr. Coffee: Anything to improve my love life. My online girlfriend is giving me carpal tunnel.

    • Blu: I'm not a whore, you know.
      Christian: Of course you're not. How much?

    • Matt: I don't feel as bad as I did, but then I don't feel much of anything. I've been taking these antidepressants ...
      Kimber: Matt that's awful.
      Matt: Sometimes it's better being numb ...
      Kimber: Wait, why would you say that? This is your life we're talking about here. You want to be awake for it, don't you? Matt, come on. Things happened to me. Things I'd rather not remember. But the more I avoided dealing with them, the more I became a prisoner of my past.

    • Christian: So you'd like me to make him look more like you.
      Arthur: Well, I'm not expecting miracles. We can't all be born with these cheekbones. I was an artist's model. Remember the naked statue that caused such a fuss in Tampa?
      Christian: The dolphin.
      Arthur: Oh, snap! I like you. Brains and beauty.
      Christian: I'm sorry, I don't play for your team.
      Arthur: That's what they all say at first. ... People can change.

    • Christian: No pro bono for boning a pro. ... New policy.
