  • Relationships still teeter on the brink.

    9.2
    Jenny is still not making anyone happy with her. Bette and Tina are on the outs, still. Bette can not get it through her head both how she hurt Tina, why Tina won't take her back and how things have changed. Dana and Alice are still funny as they try to deny thier feelings.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Shane: I learned early on that if you want to avoid that big mess that sucks and fucks with your life... you just keep it simple.
      Bette: You mean like sex with no emotional entanglements?
      Shane: (laughing) Right. That's just me. I don't think that applies to you, you're a... very well-rounded individual.
      Bette: (laughs) I don't know. I think... I just might like to study at your feet, Shane.

    • Tonya: She always wants what I want more than what she wants. Right?
      Dana: It's true, I do.
      Shane: (at Tonya and Dana, fake smile) So nice. So lesbian.

    • Alice: Joyce Wischnia is the leading gay civil rights attorney in L.A.
      Shane: Ah, Jesus, Al, you and your fucking "best of" lists. Bette and Tina don't need that.
      Alice: Well, I wasn't really thinking about Bette, I was thinking about Tina. Fine. What do you think she needs?
      Shane: I don't know. A lap dance, maybe. Not a fucking lawyer.

    • Alice: I'm gonna try that toffee nut caramel soy frappuccino drink.
      Shane: No, no, no, no. No. Tonya ordered it yesterday, it was lethal.
      Alice: Too bad she didn't keel over and die... Oh, I'm sorry, was that too brutally frank and honest for you?

    • Robin: So, um... you don't want to be in a relationship?
      Jenny: No, I don't.
      Robin: You just wanna sleep with people. Make them fall in love with you, so you can fuck with their heads.
      Jenny: No, that's not what I want.
      Robin: Well, that's what you did.

    • Alice: What are you doing here?
      Dana: I have to go to the bathroom.
      Alice: You have to get out, that's against the rules.
      Dana: No, I have to go to the bathroom, Al.
      Alice: Are you three? Can't you hold it for a minute?

    • Cashier: Okay. Any flavoring?
      Shane: What? In my coffee?
