        Carrie: You - You think I'm exhausting?
        Alex: Yeah. I could never keep up with you. I'd sort of forgotten that until just now. Uh, listen, I need to go check on, um... (Pause) Oh, hell. I just gotta go.

      • Paul: (Locked in the basement) Uh, hello? Anybody hear me? I'm locked in here! (Drops club soda downstairs) Okay, can't open that for a while.

      • Paul: (As the band plays) You stay here and party like it's 1999! Oh. It is.

      • Kevin: (About Carrie, to Alex) But if I may be serious for a moment here, Alex. I believe everyone in this world has a soul mate, and this beautiful, vivacious, and, dare I say, passionate woman here is mine. (Notices a waiter with appetizers) Ooh, crab cakes. (Leaves)
