Episode Quotes
Tabitha: You've gotta sing like your privates are on fire!

Tabitha: When the theater is in pain, I come to mend the wound.

Dixon: Guys aren't like girls. We don't hold grudges. Life's too short.

Silver: I just like being different. That's how I'm made.

Brenda: I can almost still hear the chanting: Donna Martin graduates! Donna Martin graduates!

Silver: You hit that guy's car, almost got him in trouble, and then he asks you to a game?
Dixon: It's nothing. I've seen guys fistfight, and then five minutes later they're hanging out.
Silver: That's crazy.
Dixon: Yeah, you know, guys aren't like girls. We don't hold grudges. Life is way too short.

Kelly: What did you say to Ryan?
Brenda: About what?
Kelly: About me.
Brenda: Not much.
Kelly: You shouldn't have said anything.
Brenda: Okay, Kelly, any guy that dates you is gonna have questions about him. You should just get your story straight.
Kelly: My story is straight.
Brenda: You know, you get really emotional when you talk about this. I wonder why that is.
Kelly: What are you saying?
Brenda: I'm saying that you still have feelings for him.
Kelly: Of course I still have feelings for him – he's my son's father.
Brenda: Kelly, come on, you know there's more to it than that.
Kelly: No, there isn't. Because it can't be, because he's not here, and I deserve to be with somebody and be happy.
Brenda: Oh, give me a break! You are never gonna be happy with somebody else, because you're still in love with Dylan. And you know it.

Naomi: My family is so fake. I mean, my sister's being photoshopped into the Christmas card from Paris. My dad is kissing my mom while having an affair.
