  • Wow, this are heating up

    Well i am angry at Jenny for contiue her lesibian affair with Marena, i really feel bad for her boyfriend who has no idea that his girlfriend is bi-sexual, i have say that because she confess that she wasn't sure whether she lesibian to that other guy . Don't get me wrong i not saying she not a lesibian but the way i see it she still like man otherwise she wouldn't stay with him. She did look like she wasn't enjoy it when boyfriend was making loved, loved close call first with bathroom then at club.

    Apart from that Tina is pregant and i'm happy about it, At least other one still got her job after That woman saved her job.

    i do realise i should learn some character name but i'm still quite new to the show.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Alice: We wouldn't have been late if you hadn't spent 15 minutes in the bathroom.
      Lenore: Do I look okay? Huh?
      Alice: (nodding) You look good, you look great. You do. You really do.
      Lenore: You could take a little more time with your face, you know. You might have a girlfriend by now.

    • Dana: Wait, wait, wait. What's happening? Why's everybody congratulating you guys?
      Marina: Tina's having a baby. They're pregnant!
      Dana: Oh, my god. Congratulations! (Tina and Dana hug) Wow! Why am I always the last to know these things?
      Bette: It's okay, Dana. I was second-to-last.

    • Kit: (about Tina's pregnancy) You're gonna have to be so good. You can't have any more fun, uh-uh!
      Tina: I know. No red meat, no additives, no Margaritas, wine, beer... and no Xanax! No matter how stressed-out I get.
      Alice: No more smack, no more crack, and no more blow.

    • Tina: Are you sure you want to go back to men?
      Alice: I'm positive. I've had enough drama and mind-fucks, and women are fucking crazy.
      Tina: Yeah, men are boring.
      Alice: Yeah, well bring it on, because I could use a little nice, uncomplicated, boring, boy-girl sex masquerading as love. It's fine with me.

    • Jenny: (to Marina at The Planet) Bonjour.
      Marina: Oh, bonjour!
      Jenny: (whispering) Do you have a minute for me?
      Marina: But of course!
      Jenny: Trés bien.

    • Alice: What's with Mopey Pants? What is it, Dana, are you having embarrassing multiple orgasms now?
      Dana: No. Just, Lara hasn't called me. And it's been, like... (checks Alice's watch) It's been 21 hours.
      Alice: Well, how'd you leave it?
      Dana: I left without saying anything.
      Alice: From your own apartment?
      Dana: I was really embarrassed, Alice!

    • Lisa: (re: Alice's broken heart) That's no reason to swear off being a lesbian.
      Shane: I agree.
      Lisa: Maybe I can change her mind.
      Dana: Wait. I'm sorry, I don't think... I don't know if you've noticed, but you're a guy. (laughs)
      Shane: Lisa's a lesbian.
      Lisa: I'm a lesbian-identified man.

    • Alice: Something happen with you and Lara?
      Dana: No. I'm just never having sex again, that's all.
      Shane: Easy, Dana, come on.
      Dana: I've never been more humiliated or embarrassed or ashamed of anything in my entire life.
      Alice: What, did she tie you up and leave you?

    • Tina: (about the pregnancy test box) Oh my God, I would have so much more respect for that box if it had some more honest pictures. Like some sobbing infertile woman with a negative test stick in her hand.
      Alice: Yeah. And on the other side it could have a teenage girl with a positive one, about to hang herself.
      Tina: Yeah.

    • Alice: (Tina is taking a pregnancy test) How do you not pee on your hand?
      Tina: You just aim below the clit.
      Alice: Oh, really?
      Tina: Where did you think pee came out of?
      Alice: I don't know, there's a lot going on down there.
