  • Quotes

    • David: (pointing to a picture) Oh, is that your grandma?
      Leslie: (sarcastically) Yeah. (pauses) It's Madeleine Albright.
      David: That's her name? I usually just call mine Nana.
      Leslie: No, that's Madeleine Albright, first female Secretary of State.
      David: Okay, so that's not--it's not your grandma then.

    • (After quitting the beauty pageant)
      April: No, I didn't win, but at least I didn't make any new friendships.

    • Leslie: I'm a judge, so I don't want to seem partial, but Trish will win this over my dead body.

    • Ann: I'm sorry -- you don't think it's weird that my ex-boyfriend lives in a tent in the pit outside my house?
      Mark: It's....not....ideal.

    • Andy: Is Mark the guy who's fixing your shower? Because I don't know about you, Mark, but I've seen a lot of porn, and I know what "fixing your shower" means.

    • April: This is an impression of my sister, Natalie.. "Hi, I'm Natalie, I like Ritalin and have low self-esteem!"
