  • Quotes

    • Holly: (To Kyle) I just wonder what I'm going to tell my daughter when she's in high school and she asks me, Mommy, what was your prom like? I guess I'll just say, well sweetie, I went with this very cute boy who was a wonderful dancer... and then we went to a party at your Aunt Marcy's house and later that night I walked into her bedroom and there he was... with this other boy from our Spanish class doing all the things I was finally prepared to do with him! (pretends to strangle him)

    • Lina: (To Joanne) Oh, uh, I-I-I'm sorry... but everything you just said sounded really, really nice. I mean, seriously, if I had someone doing amazing, extravagant things for me everyday I think I'd just shut up! I mean, you call these problems?! (mockingly) Oh, it's horrible, someone wrote in the sky for me... I'd kill to find a little note in my diaphragm case! Oh... but that's just me.

    • Lina: Kat was expelled for telling Mr. Dubban he looked like a penis.
      Richie: He did; he kinda looked like a penis.
      Lina: Yeah... and the turtlenecks didn't help.

    • Nicole: So, where're you living now?
      Duncan: I'm still in Narberth.
      Nicole: Oh? Where?
      Duncan: Oh, uh, Montgomery Street.
      Nicole: Doesn't your mom live... oh...
      Duncan: Yeah.

    • Ethan: (about Joanne) When we met it was like fate brought us together. Now what's it doing?
      Kat: I'm not really a big believer in fate.
      Ethan: Yeah well, I hate fate!
      Kat: Let's not make it mad though!

    • Duncan: Hey. What are you doing here? (Nicole grabs his face and kisses him) Good enough!
      Nicole: I don't know what this is.
      Duncan: I don't care.

    • Nicole: So, anyway... it was really great to see you again.
      Duncan: Yeah... yeah, you too.
      Nicole: And you're happy?
      Duncan: Yeah. Like you said, it's all good. (pause as they look at each other) It's just kinda hard knowing that I'm not even thirty and the greatest thing that will ever happen to me already happened.

    • Duncan: Hey. What are you doing here? (Nicole grabs his face and kisses him) Good enough!
      Nicole: I don't know what this is.
      Duncan: I don't care.

    • Ethan: (talking about his plan to Joanne, on the party) ... I even tracked down Mrs. Klinger. (Mrs. Klinger is drinking) FYI, if you want some vodka, get it now.

    • Ethan: After our call, I assumed you weren't coming.
      Kat: The deal is--we can leave in 20 minutes if it sucks.
      Ethan: You're just a big bag of sunshine, aren't ya?

    • Kat: Wow. Cheating on you in your own bed.
      Lina: Yeah.
      Kat: Oh, I hate him! And yet I admire him.

    • Kat: You know, but I gotta say my birthday's the same as that Son of Sam guy. Yeah, it's not really enough to base a relationship on!

    • Kat: Wow. What happened to the girl who just got dumped last night?
      Lina: You mean Mrs. Kyle Lendo?

    • Richie: (on the phone, to Lina) You're like... the first good thing that's happened in my life in the past two years.
      Lina: I am?
      Richie: Yeah, you're like this amazing, shining, positive... (He hits her with his car as he backs up)
      Richie: Lina? Lina? Hello?

    • Kat: (To Ethan about Joanne) Come on! She just dumped you, in front of twenty strangers, at a party you threw for her. I think we can trade up.

    • Kat: (about Joanne) You have got to stop thinking about her as the person you were meant to be with! In fact, stop thinking about her as a person. For a while, she's just that selfish, hurtful, whore.
      Ethan: I'll give you selfish and hurtful.
      Kat: Oh, come on, gimme whore, too!

    • Kat: Just so I know, um... how long are you gonna wallow?
      Ethan: She left me an hour ago, I was thinking maybe an hour and ten minutes!

    • Nicole: Yonk? Am I the best thing that's ever happened to you?
      Yonk: Of course you are. (silence) You're not counting playin' in the Superbowl, are you? I mean, come on, it's the Superbowl! But you're definately second. (silence) Oh wait. There's that million-dollar check I got for putting my name on that stupid barbecue grill. That didn't suck. So it goes Superbowl, big check, then you. (silence) Dinner at the White House...

    • (After Ethan rushes out after Joanne, who has just broken up with him)
      Kat: This is the best party ever!

    • Richie: Oh my God. Is that Nicole?
      Duncan: Aha.
      Richie: Ah, She looks...
      Duncan: Yeah.
      Richie: Oh, she brought her dad.
      Duncan: Husband. Dad is younger.

    • Duncan: He used to play for the Eagles.
      Richie: I never followed music...
      Duncan: It's a football team.
      Richie: ... Or sports.

    • Richie: The last couple of years have pretty much been a living hell.
      Duncan: Oh, I'm sorry.
      Richie: It's gonna get better.
      Duncan: Oh, there you go.
      Duncan: I don't know why I say things like that. It's not.

    • Kat: (To Ethan, on the phone) You know, it is funny. I have no recollection of either you or Joanne. But you really sound like people I would hate!

    • (Ethan is inviting Kat to the party over the phone)
      Ethan: I know it's kinda weird, but it's the 20th anniversary of the day I met my fiancée-Joanne Richmond, she was also in our class. It's kind of a cute story.
      Kat: I love cute stories. (hangs up the phone)

    • Ethan: I just... can't imagine being with anybody else!
      Kat: I know, it hurts, but... I have totally forgotten your name.

    • Ethan: (calling Duncan on phone) Duncan? Hi, this is Ethan Haas.
      Duncan: From third grade?
      Ethan: (ecstatic) Yeah!!
