TRIVIA: In this episode Kat is wearing the leather jacket she got when Ethan took it from his ex-fiancee, finally realizing that she's no good for him. Ethan bought the jacket himself for 700 dollars.
Palmer: See, this is what I miss.
(changes to a baleful tone)
I'm Kat. I'm dark and brooding. Don't pop in.
Ethan: She's got you down!
Yonk (after listening to Richie explaining his current status with Lina): I'm sorry, that's just more words than I care to take in.
Nicole: Do you ever feel like sometimes Richie just doesn't get who you are?
Lina: No. I think he gets me more than anyone I've ever met.
Lina: Yeah. With all the other guys I've been with I spent most of my time trying to explain myself, but with him I don't need to. Sometimes he even explains me to me.
Duncan: So uh, you're doing any better?
Nicole: Yeah, I'm hanging in there. I keep telling myself there's a lot of poor women out there who will never get any anniversary present that they can rub their business on.
Ethan: So, what kind of movie do you guys wanna see?
Lina: Maybe a romantic comedy?
Kat: You got anything where someone's wrongfully in prison?
Kat: Yeah, I'm in that kind of mood.
Yonk: You know I got my second wife a stripper pole. I could not get her off the damn thing!
Duncan: And uh... where'd you meet her?
Yonk: Strip club.
Nicole: What did you get me?!
Yonk: When I saw this I thought of you.
Nicole:(Unwrapping the gift) What?
Yonk: It's a stripper pole!
Nicole:(In shock) Yes it is!
Yonk: See? That's why I wanted to wait until the party so everybody could see your face just like that!
Nicole: Oh, well it still may be like this!
Kat: Penguins are cute and all, but if you cooked one, I'd eat it.
Duncan: Hey, you okay?
Nicole: Why wouldn't I be? My husband got me a stripper pole for our first anniversary. Maybe next year he'll get me the leather mask with the zipper I've had my eye on.
Yonk: Gave my first wife the clap.
Richie: Why are you telling me this?
Yonk: Well, I thought we were sharing. Can't always be about you, you know?
Yonk: Listen sugar, about that stripper pole...
Nicole: Oh honey, not tonight. The idea of spinning after eating half of that stack cake. I...
Yonk: No, no. I just wanted to make sure you understand that was the gag gift.
Yonk: (handing her an envelope) This is the real one.
Nicole: You got me passes to fashion week?
Yonk: VIP access. Front row everyday, except one day we're in the second row, but we're behind Prince, and he's a little bitty thing.
Nicole: Oh, this is just unbelievable. I... can't imagine a better present. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Lina: So, you met your new neighbor yet?
Kat: No, I'm just hoping they don't play the banjo.
Lina: Did the last one play the banjo?
Kat: That's my sister. Lina, this is Palmer. We went to art school together.
Lina: Oh, hi!
Palmer: Hi! Great chair!
Lina: Oh, thank you.
(At Kat's apartment, Kat, Lina and Ethan discuss what kind of movie they want to see when there is a knock at the door...)
Palmer: Hi! I just thought I'd pop in!
Kat: Yeah, here's the deal. I'm not really a "pop in" kinda gal. But if you're ever in here, then you are more than welcome to pop out.
Nicole: (To Richie as she walks out of her bedroom) It's a stripper pole. It's a gift from my husband.
Richie: (To Lina) It's better than what he gave his first wife.
(Richie finds Lina talking to Nicole in Nicole's bedroom)
Richie: Oh hey! 'Sup?
Lina: Uh, Nicole was just showing me her new pole.
Richie: Oh. Oh! Expecting firemen?
(Richie arrives at Yonk and Nicole's party and sees Lina)
Richie: Hey! Aw, you look amazing.
Lina: Oh, I did my hair and Armor All'd my tires.
(After Lina tells Richie she needs to think about getting back together)
Lina: I'm not saying I can't. I just need to think about all this.
Richie: Okay. No, that's fair.
Lina: I'm sorry.
Richie: No, don't be. I'm fine. I'm more than fine. I bask in your indecision.
Lina: I know this is hard for you.
Richie: Please! The uncertainty is half the fun!
(after meeting Kat's new neighbor, Palmer, who she knew from art school and dislikes immensely)
Lina: What? I thought she was sweet.
Kat: Yeah! She's too sweet. I hate her whole cutesy blond perky thing. I hate that she refuses to see that I hate her.
Lina: What if you need to borrow sugar?
Kat: For what?
Lina: I don't know, to bake a cake?
Kat: Yeah, I'd rather have a bitter cake.
Lina: You are a bitter cake.
Yonk: You know as my wives get younger and younger, it just gets harder to figure out what they want! I mean, what do the kids like these days?
Kat: And you, you think your pretty cute, huh?
Ethan: Well I'm no kumquat Jesus, but...
