    • (About Spike)
      Sarah: You were being kinda unfair to him today, don't you think? He's a good guy. I thought it was time you knew that.
      Lynda: Parting gift?

    • Sarah: Damn!
      Lynda: Magazine.

    • Spike: So why are you phoning me?
      Sarah: For a good reason. You might hear about it. Got to go now. (Hangs up)

    • Spike: I, I thought...
      Sarah: I know. I bottled out of leaving, Spike. I came here to put my stuff back in my desk, and I found this.
      Spike: She guessed you were leaving.
      Sarah: And knew I never would.
      Spike: Some girl.

    • Sarah: Spike? Trying to soften her up for me?
      Spike: Great job I did, huh?
      Sarah: It was a nice thought. Hopeless, but nice.
      Spike: Anybody else know this is your last day?
      Sarah: Not unless you've told them.
      Spike: Don't do it like this.
      Sarah: You want me to give her a months notice, so she can find a way to stop me? I wanna go to university, Spike, and I'm going.
      Spike: Out the back door? Not a word to anyone?
      Sarah: I've tried every other way.
      Spike: Tell her.
      Sarah: I'll leave a note.

    • Spike: Look. Someone here might, you know, have something to say to you. Something that you ought to hear. But nobody's gonna say a word if they think that they're likely to get their head torn off and spat in your out-tray.
      Lynda: I want to know what you've done and her name. That's it. We're finished. Julie, cancel all scheduled dates.
      Julie: Aw, this is the fourth time this week! (About the post-its) These things aren't even sticky anymore.
      Lynda: Just get on with it please.
      Julie: They keep slipping down. He's had to date Frazz twice!

    • Lynda: Be absent, Thomson. Get out of my life. Make a hole in my peer group!

    • Sarah: Am I going to be in the press?
      Matt Kerr: Oh, so you've been told? Yes, we've been planning it for weeks!
      (Sarah passes out)

      Mr.Winters: Oh, Matt you're... (Sees Sarah on the floor)
      Lynda: She's dead. I hope you're satisfied.

    • Spike: O.k. She's a cow.
      Sarah: You're telling me?
      Spike: No. You're telling her. Why? We've all got our favorite Lynda story. But you guys have been close. And it hasn't all been bad. You wanna end it on a level like this?
      Sarah: I don't have a choice.

    • Lynda: Who's the blonde, sir?
      Teacher: Will you get to your seat, please?
      Lynda: A new girl? If you're changing the line-up, I'd prefer to know. What's her form? Any weak spots?
      Teacher: This is an exam, not a competition.
      Lynda: Oh, so you won't be giving out marks this time?
