  • Quotes

    • Max: And she lied about finding a therapist.
      Shoshana: Well, Tara did locate a therapist, Max.
      Max: I... I know, Shoshana. But the therapist she located is her.

    • Kate: Will you take me?
      Charmaine: Normally, yes, but since your dad got busted for assault, I'm trying to stay on his good side.

    • Kate: So, how's the break-up coming?
      Marshall: It's kind of... still in process.
      Kate: It's been two weeks. You can't break up with someone for two weeks.

    • Marshall: (talking about his attempts to break up with Courtney) She is fine with no sex.
      Kate: Okay, baby steps.
      Marshall: But... she said she wants to be a celibate power couple.
      Kate: Celibate power couple?
      Marshall: Yeah.
      Kate: That is the stupidest idea I've ever heard.

    • Hany: You always been so smart?
      Marshall: Kind of have to be around here, or the system eats you alive.

    • Charmaine: (to Max) Hey, is that ten gallons of water or are you just happy to see me?

    • Ted: It's pretty amazing, actually, how much she's like the real Shoshana.
      Charmaine: If by "amazing" you mean "makes you want to shove a stick in her eye," then you're totally right.

    • Ted: The only real difference between Tara's Shoshana and the real one is the real one's got this killer lisp.
      Charmaine and Max: Don't tell Tara that.
