    • Quinn: Good morning, Zoey!
      Zoey: Morning...Um, why are you jumping rope?
      Quinn: 'Cause kumping rope makes your brain vibrate, which I enjoy. You wanna try?
      Zoey: Nah, I'm not much of a morning jumper.

    • Zoey: Well, if you ever want company, I mean, you could hang with me and my roommates sometime.
      Quinn: Aren't they the ones always screaming at each other?
      Zoey: Good point. Maybe just me and you should hang out then.

    • Quinn: Um, may I feel your food?
      Zoey: (moving her tray away from Quinn) Um, why?
      Quinn: I'm working on a theory.
      Chase: Which is?
      Quinn: Every food has its own distinct energy. Almost like emotions, which can be better identified through touch, as opposed to taste or smell!
      Zoey: So you wanna...feel if my food is happy?
      Quinn: Or sad. Worried. Frightened.
      Chase: I'm frightened!
      Zoey: So Quinn, why do you always hang out by yourself?
      Chase: Well, I have a theory. (Zoey kicks him)

    • Zoey: I just wish Nicole and Dana would get along. I can't deal with the tension.
      Chase: Well hey, I got an idea.
      Zoey: Tell me.
      Chase: Why don't we hang out together tonight?
      Zoey: You and me?
      Chase: Me and you. You know, just to take a break from your roommates. We could play foosball. You know, if you like foosball. Do girls like foosball? Because if you don't, we could like knit or-
      Zoey: I like foosball!

    • Zoey: (to Nicole and Dana) What, I can't brush my teeth for five minutes without you two trying to bludgeon each other?

    • Dana: (unplugging Nicole's hairdryer) You woke me up. Again.
      Nicole: So? We gotta be at class by eight!
      Dana: Which is why I set my alarm clock for 7:55! Nighty-night!

    • Chase: One day there is going to be a giant hamster behind me and you are going to be really sorry!

    • Zoey: Guess I'm stuck with Quinn and her Quinnventions.
      Chase: (About Quinn) Quinnventions?
      Zoey: Yeah. She combined her name with the word invention.
      Chase: Ah, so she's Quinnsane!

    • Quinn: See, my name is Quinn and I invent things...so I call them Quinnventions!
      Zoey: That's very...Quinnteresting!

    • Michael: Sup Chase?
      Chase: Oh! Hey! (attempts to hide rose he is carrying behind his back)
      Michael: Who's the rose for?
      Chase: Oh what, this? Um...alright, you caught me...it's for you.
      Michael: Thanks, but why don't you give it to Zoey instead?
      Chase: Hey, there's an idea!

    • Zoey: Want a grape?
      Nicole: I miss you!

      (they hug)
      Nicole: Please move back in with us!
      Zoey: Okay!

    • Zoey: Quinn happens to be the perfect roommate!
      Quinn: (coming out into the hall) Zoey, I'm about to iron my underwear. Want me to do yours?
      Zoey: Um, I don't iron my underwear...
      Quinn: Whatever.
      Dana: Yeah, she's a good one!
      Zoey: Well at least we don't fight all the time!
      Dana: Neither do we.
      Nicole: Yeah, since you moved out we've been getting along great.
      Dana: (puts arm around Nicole) Best friends!
      Zoey: Well, good for you. Bye.
      Nicole: See ya!
      Dana: Later!
      Dana: (Zoey leaves) Never touch me again!
      Nicole: Slob!
      Dana: Jerk!

    • Nicole: Okay, if I don't reblow my hair periodically, it gets all frizzy!
      Dana: So?
      Nicole: I can't let boys see me with frizzy hair! They'll make up cruel nicknames for me like, "girl with frizzy hair," or I don't know, "Ms. Frizzy." Wait that sounds cute!
      Dana: You're not gonna look cute with a black eye!

    • Quinn: Hey, before you go, would you drink this and tell me if it makes your tongue throb?
      Zoey: Uh, nope!

    • Dustin: Just lend me a few bucks, 'til next week.
      Zoey: I can't, I only get fifteen, and I gotta live.
      Dustin: How 'bout you?
      Chase: Sorry dude, if I had money I'd lend it to myself. But, I don't...So I'm outta luck, which means you are too.
      Dustin: What did he say?
      Zoey: No!

    • Zoey: Last night while I was sleeping, Quinn snipped off some of my hair.
      Chase: Why?
      Zoey: She wanted my DNA.
      Chase: For what?
      Zoey: I was afraid to ask!

    • Dana: I get the aisle seat!
      Nicole: No, I get the aisle seat!
      Dana: You always get the aisle seat!
      Nicole: No I don't, you do!
      Dana: You do!
      Nicole: No, you do!
      Zoey: (to Chase) You know, I think they're happiest when they're arguing.

    • Chase: (to Zoey) You can't just look a girl in the face and say, "I don't want to live with you anymore!"
      (later in the day)
      Quinn: Zoey, I don't want to live with you anymore!

    • The Gummy Worm Blues Song: (By Dustin)

      I got the Gummy Worm Blues.
      I can't afford to buy shoes.
      Life can be so mean.
      I gotta get me some green.
      I'm feelin' down on my luck,
      Could use a couple of bucks.
      I got the Gummy Gummy Gummy Worm Blues.
