    • (Drew attempts to prove that Mimi can't beat a polygraph test)
      Drew: First I have to ask you a base question. Mimi Bobeck, did you invent the automobile?
      Mimi: Yes, I did.
      (the polygraph does nothing)
      Mr. Wick: Give her something more difficult. Something impossible for her to say yes to. It'll set this thing off like a pinball machine.
      Drew: All right, hey Mimi, how'd you like to get out the butter and massage oil and do a little slip and slide with me later on?
      Mimi: (after two deep breaths) Sounds great.
      (again, the polygraph does nothing)
      Mimi: I am a god! Yes! Yes! Yes!

    • Mr. Wick (referring to Mimi): She's pure evil, Carey.

    • (About the polygraph)
      Drew: Mimi, you can lie to me, you can lie in court. If you want, you can even lie in front of my car, but you will never beat this machine.

  • Notes

    • In the beginning of the scene where Drew, Lewis, Kate and Oswald help Oswald move out of his apartment, the top of the stage set is visible briefly when the camera pans around the room, showing the empty space above.
