  • Quotes

    • Momma Boone: I know there are things I could'a done okay? You ain't the first to tell me. Denny, that's my husband, he... he tried to get me goin' to another doctor a few years back but-- I'd gotten pretty big, and you know how people get out there when you're big.

    • Sean: I'm not ready to give up on us Julia.
      Julia: But i have Sean.

    • Liz: (in Christian's dream funeral) He's the only straight man I ever met who was arrogant enough to think that he could convert me. Sometimes, I hated the guy. But most of the time, I loved him.

    • Christian: In my experience, when a person gives up one vice, they usually overcompensate… with others.
      Kit: And in my experience, Dr. Troy, when a man keeps evading me with bullshit come-ons, he's either tragically insecure or hung like a toddler.
      Christian: I assure you, Miss McGraw, it's neither.

    • Kimber: I'm tired of masturbating myself to sleep at night.

    • Erica: (to Julia about a divorce lawyer) She makes Jaws look like a goldfish.

    • Kimber: (after Christian has asked her to marry him) You know how many times I have fantasised about hearing you ask me that?... And what kills me the most is that I didn't even hear the words 'I love you'.

    • Denny Boone: (to Sean) Don't you dare challenge my love for that woman. She may not look like much to you and your South Beach kind, Doctor, but to me, she is Uma in Kill Bill.

    • Momma Boone: (to Sean) But be quick, I don't like needles!
      (scene cuts to over 50 injectors on the counter)

    • Christian: (Referring to prolonging Momma Boone's surgery) She's not Julia, Sean. The separation can't go on forever.

    • Fireman (Talking out the window from inside Momma Boone's house): Pump some fresh air in here. And no one inside without a mask and menthol.

    • Kimber: (after walking in on Christian having sex with Kit) First you propose to me. Now you're screwing another girl. Who are you?
      Christian: I'm me again, baby. I'm back.

    • Quentin: (to Christian, referring to his scar) Come on, I just bought you a drink, baby. The least you could do is let me see it.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Reservoir Dogs: Much like in the 1992 movie "Reservoir Dogs" the song "Stuck in the middle with you" is played during a human is cut off (in "Reservoir Dogs" ears were cut off, here breasts were cut off). Shortly after that, the new doctor comes in, his name is Quentin. The director of "Reservoir Dogs" is Quentin Tarantino.
