    • QUOTES (12)

      • Tuesday: Corey's whole... bourgeois bohemian thing really pisses me off.
        Margaret: And yet, you're drawn to him. Like an eighth grader to Madonna.

      • Katie: Hey! See that girl in the tube top over there? She sent you this drink!
        D.J.: My sister?
        Katie: No, the other tube top!
        D.J.: That's a man.

      • Corey: ...but from now on, please, just don't touch my stuff.
        Katie: You're right, Corey. I'm sorry. You would never do that to me... except the time you cut the string off my Chatty Cathy... and you made her just plain Cathy.
        Corey: Chatty--
        Katie: Don't deny it!
        Corey: Okay, fine, whatever. I just cut the strings on your doll 15 years ago. I'm sorry. Are we even?
        Katie: Yes.
        RT: Uh, actually, honey, that was me. I had a little bit too much to drink one night, and... I thought she was judging me.

      • Corey: Hey, Roger, you really think doing all those shots is going to make you forget you got fired?
        Roger: I got fired?

      • Sophia: Oh, come on, it'll be fun! Let's go!
        Katie: No, it won't be fun. Roger lost his job.
        Sophia: So? Leave Roger here. Roger's a big boy. Which one's Roger?

      • Roger: Okay, ahem. You know how we're Zale's Pontiac Mazda?
        Boss: Yeah.
        Roger: Listen to this... Zale'spontiacmazda. Rolls right off the tongue. Zale'spontiacmazda. People say, "Wait a minute. What's that about?"
        Boss: You're fired, Roger.
        Roger: What?
        Boss: You'refiredroger.

      • Roger: So, boss... I guess I feel I speak for both of us when I say we have the same concern. Which is, "are we doing enough to help Roger sell cars?" And Roger... doesn't think so. You know, there's no "u" in "failure."

      • Katie: What's it about?
        Corey: Oh, it's about depression, pain, angst -- ooh, Fruity Pebbles.
        Katie: Can I hear it?
        Corey: Well, it's not really that kind of song.
        Roger: It's not the kind of song for people to hear? What is it, for dogs?

      • RT: What does he do with all these songs? He doesn't sell them. He doesn't play them for anyone. God knows I don't want to hear 'em.
        Katie: He's building his body of work, and we need to be supportive.
        RT: So you think he's going to make it as a musician?
        Katie: Absolutely. Once he lets people hear his music. I think he's afraid 'cause his songs are so thoughtful and complicated... and unmarketable.

      • Corey: What did I ever see in Sophia? I mean, okay, she's beautiful.
        Roger: It's sad... you'll never get a girl like her again. But you got to let it go, man. Remember when we went out for track and we didn't make it?
        Corey: Uh, I remember I made it and you didn't.
        Roger: And we got over that.

      • Corey: ...I don't need to be in the V.I.P room with the beautiful people with their colorful clothes.
        Sophia: And that's why we broke up. That, and the fact that you can't accessorize worth squat.
        Corey: Oh, but Katie can, and that's why you're dating my sister. Finally it makes sense.
        Katie: We are not dating. It's more like harrassment.

      • Sophia: Corey! Katie! What are you doing here? No one comes here on Wednesday. I mean, look around. Even the bartender's unattractive.
        Bartender: Sophia, I'm right here.
