  • Quotes

    • Julia: You wanna hear my truth? You won´t let me succeed if you haven´t. I can´t be in a loving relationship when yours failed so miserably. I can´t possibly have raised children who love me when yours can´t stand you!
      Erica: Is that why you´re in love with Christian? Because your marriage is succeeding so brilliantly?
      Julia: What?
      Erica: Come on. I saw how you looked at him. Why else would you wanna raise the child? Because you loved mothering the first time around?
      Julia: He´s been one of my closest friends for over 20 years.
      Erica: And you´ve been in love with him for all this time.

    • Manya: It was like God was waking up inside of me.

    • Christian: (About his skills as a lover) All I can say is it´s always worked for me.
      Sean: Till Manya Mabika. Besides, what makes you so sure the others weren´t faking it? Julia had me fooled.
      Christian: I can tell the difference.
      Sean: No, you can´t. No man can tell. We´ll never really know what gets them off just like they´ll never know what it´s like to have a hard-on. It´s like trying to describe the sky to a blind man. We´re just groping in the dark.

    • Christian: (changing Wilbur's nappy and washing him) I know, it's not as much fun as sitting in your own poop, but someday you'll be able to pay some beautiful lady to do this to you all day!

    • Liz: You really have no idea what goes on inside a woman.
      Christian: You know, I think I've been inside enough of them to have some idea.

    • Sean: (discussing Manya) I don't think this is something we can do!
      Christian: Look, Sean, you may be the expert on complex microsurgery, but I'm a goddamn genius when it comes to pussy. If I build it, she will come.

  • Allusions

    • Christian: If I build it, she will come.

      This is a reference to the novel Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella and the 1989 movie Field of Dreams based on the novel, starring Kevin Costner. In the novel and the movie, the main character becomes obsessed with building a baseball field, saying "If I build it, they (the players) will come."
