  • QUOTES (6)

    • Amanda: (Entering True's office) Knock, knock.
      Lulu: Who's there?
      Amanda: Amanda.
      Ryan & Lulu: Amanda who?
      Amanda: What's happening? You know who I am.
      True: It's a "Knock, knock" joke, you know them.
      Amanda: We didn't have time for "Knock, knock" jokes when I was a youth. I was to busy being seen, but not heard.

    • True: Amanda, it's not really my place to say, but maybe you're picking the wrong guys. I mean, my dad would never lie...
      Amanda: Are you trying to fix me up with your father?
      True: Gross, no!

    • Ryan: Did you hear that? He's meeting someone for lunch.
      True: So?
      Ryan: So don't you think that's pretty fishy? I mean, who has lunch at (checks his watch) 12:30?

    • Amanda: (to True) We need to make sure that all of these orders have been delivered. Which means, calling every single store where our designs are sold. Let me know if anything's outstanding.
      Ryan: I think you're outstanding.
      Amanda: Too bad you're not out-standing... in traffic.

    • Oscar: (about his favorite childhood book) Whenever I felt sad, I'd read that book and it helped me get through things.
      Lulu: When I get sad, I like to read the phonebook. It's like a yearbook for the whole city! Sometimes, I call two people with the same name and make them talk to each other. Melvin Lynn, meet Melvin Lynn.

    • True: You have a boyfriend?!
      Amanda: Don't sound so surprised.
      True: I didn't mean it bad, I just didn't know you had one.
      Amanda: Well, it's relatively new. He's been out of town quite a lot on business- international finance.
      True: Is he nice?
      Amanda: He owns homes in Aspen, Montana and New York.
      True: Is he nice?
      Amanda: (shortly) He's a peach!

  • NOTES (1)


    • Stylista:
      The name of the magazine that Amanda's boyfriend Chad is reading in this episode is named "Stylista." This is a reference to the reality series Stylista in which contestants compete to get a job at a leading fashion magazine. This seems relevant to the plot of this series, as well, because True works at the fictional fashion magazine "Mad Style."
