    No creo que consiga las palabras adecuadas para explicarte por qué. Y eso que pasé días tratando de encontrarlas. Pero cuáles elegir para que entiendas que no lo hice por que no te quiero, por que no te amo, por que no te valoro ni te respeto como a nadie nunca... Lo que pasa es que necesito algo que no consigo, algo que no me das... La libertad... no, no la libertad... lo nuevo, lo peligroso, lo irracional, lo prohibido, lo loco, lo extraño, lo descuidado, lo desquiciado, lo que no te pido es que me perdones, lo que te pido es que me entiendas, te amo, te quiero, te valoro, te respeto como a nadie nunca, lo que pasa es que...

    This episode was interesting, not only because we get to hear the various coming out stories, we get our first inkling of Alices's feeling about Dana.

    Dana truly gets to bask in the glory of being a out athlete and picks up a a keepsake of the weekend, Tanya.

    Bette, alone because Tina went to Palm Springs, mmets Candace, a carpender who get the bid to remodel the gallery. Bette finds herself attracted to Candace, and fights temptaion.

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • It is revealed that Bette and Alice used to date.

    • Opening Teaser:
      Los Angeles, California -- 1979: Two Playboy Bunnies make out in a swimming pool of a fancy mansion. A third woman approaches them with men cheering in the background.
      The Connection: This is later shown as Lenore's (Alice's mother) coming-out story.

    • Goof: When the girls set out on the road it looks as though the sun hasn't risen yet. But in the scene before, you can see sunlight coming in through the blinds.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Tina: (telling them how she and Bette first met) So then, that night I go home and I realize... I left the earring at her gallery even though I could have sworn that I put it back on my ear. (chuckling) Call it fate.
      Alice: Or call it the oldest trick in the book.

    • Alice: (to Lenore) Woohoo, congratulate me. I got my period.
      Bette: So why are we congratulating you?
      (Everybody but Bette and Tina looks awkward.)
      Alice: (searching for words) Huh?... Cause I love getting my period.
      Lenore: She does. Ever since she was a kid.
      Alice: Right. Yeah, no. Cause it reaffirms my womanhood. I like to celebrate it to, you know, show women everywhere it's a blessing, it's not a curse.

    • Alice: You guys, there's supposed to be, like, 10,000 women there.
      Tina: Whoa. (smiling) She's done research.

    • Jenny: So, is this a golf tournament?
      Alice: Yeah, it's the Kraft-Nabisco Professional Women's Golf Tournament. Otherwise known as the Dinah Shore Weekend.
      Jenny: Is she gay?
      Alice: No. Dinah Shore's dead.

    • Lenore: Tennis players are like girls in college. Gay until graduation.

    • Alice: Alright, look. Right there. See?
      (A couple of butch lesbians walk by, hand in hand.)
      Alice: That's what I call a hundred footer.
      Jenny: What's that?
      Tina: It means you can tell she's a lesbian from a hundred feet away.
      Alice: Is it her hair? Is it her jog bra? Is it her mandles? I don't know!
      (Everyone laughs.)
      Tina: Great.
      Alice: I can tell she's a lesbo from across a football field.

    • Alice: (about Tonya) Does that thing come with batteries, Dana?

    • Jenny: Oh my god, I have never seen so many women in one place in my whole life.
      Alice: And every one of 'em is greased up and ready to go.

    • Dana: (about her tennis camp counselor) I'd tell you her name but she's famous now, so I can't. I'll just call her Ralph.
