  • Quotes

    • Dana: (to Alice, watching Shane and Slim interact) It's like some weird carnival mirror or something.

    • (Bette, Tina, Alice, Dana and Shane are watching Kit perform for her music video, dancers are all over her.)
      Bette: Shit, I feel like I did this.
      Tina: No, look, she's having fun.
      Bette: She's being mounted.

    • Francesca: (to Jenny) The thing about Marina is that when she focuses on you, you feel like you're the only one that exists. It's her gift. I don't blame you for falling in love with her. (to Marina) But maybe you use your gift a little too freely.

    • Alice: (to Dana, who is moping in bed) Some of us have it worse, you know, Dana. Some of us are dating lesbian men. Okay? C'mon.

    • Andrew: You know, I don't understand why you need to be set up. When your mother showed me your picture I was, like--
      Dana: Was it a Subaru ad by any chance?
      Andrew: Oh, you did a Subaru ad?
      Dana: Yeah. The slogan was "Get out and stay out."
      Andrew: Oh, is that like an outdoorsy kind of...
      Dana: Gay thing? Yeah, look, um... That's me, okay? I'm... I'm a lesbian! (Andrew looks at her weirdly with lust.) Don't look at me like that, okay? I don't wanna have sex with you and another woman, okay? I'd just... I would want to have sex with a woman, alright. I'm that gay.

    • Alice: I don't want a lesbian boyfriend. I'm sorry! I want a boyfriend who's straight, or I want a lesbian who's a girl!

    • Slim: Kit's sister?
      Bette: Her half-sister.
      Slim: Hm. Beautiful half, I'm supposing.
      Bette: Mmm, more like the gay half.

    • Dana: (about her mom) It's like I came out to a piece of wood. I mean, she didn't even mention it.
      Alice: That's good. She's accepting it through denial.
      Dana: She's setting me up on a blind date with her friend Mildred's son!
      Alice: At least it's not shock therapy.

    • Alice: (about Lisa) What a lez!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Before Shane cuts Cherie's hair for the first time, Cherie asks her assistant to "call Gwynnie and get three tickets to Coldplay". This is an inside joke on Katherine Moennig (Shane), who is cousin to actress Gwyneth Paltrow (nicknamed "Gwynnie") who, in turn, is married to Coldplay singer Chris Martin.
