  • Quotes

    • Max: Where have you been?
      Tara: You'll have to ask Buck.
      Max: You don't remember anything?
      Tara: Nothing.
      Max: Oh, I hate when they run off like this.

    • Max: (to Tara) Okay, I want you to call the cops, have them bust up this party so I can have a bunch of sex with my wife, please.

    • Tara: (to Charmaine) You're a good influence on her. My urge to sell her for parts is mostly subsided.

    • Lionel: But you know I'm not into everyone's need to have words for every fucking thing. "Boyfriend" is just another one of those gross words, like "vagina" or "love."

    • Kate: I've been sending out my résumé. I think I need to get a real job.
      Charmaine: Well, if you get a job, who's gonna take care of me? I'm fat and my feet hurt, and I can't fit into the nook next to the fridge to reach the diet cokes that my doctor thinks I should cut down on.

    • Tara: I am back at school for the first time since the early '90s, I've had my ass kicked by life, and I've had more therapy than an ex-altar boy. I wanna learn. I mean, you couldn't ask for a more willing vessel. Besides, you know two or three or ten of these kids are bound to drop out by October, their little brains swollen with Coors
      Light. Me... I will still be there, raising my damn hand like every other overeager grown-up who ever wanted a second chance.

    • Max: Son of a bitch! Way my life's going, it's like I'm Charlie fucking Brown.

    • Neil: You don't want your wife taking a couple of college courses, and you have no problem with her putting on a pair of dime-store glasses, flying all over town on a motorcycle? I mean, Buck has guns. You okay with that?

    • Tara: I'm just sick of disappearing and... being the least interesting person inside me.
      Max: You're not. Chicken is.
