Episode Quotes
Cameron: She in yet?
Rachel: You know Nina isn't the most prompt person in the world.
Cameron: Hmm.
Rachel: It's gonna be weird here, isn't it? You two working here together.
Cameron: No. No, we're... we're cool.
Rachel: Really? 'Cause your pupils just dilated and your heart rate is up.
Cameron: Good to have you back, Rach.

Nathan Cley: I love that government-style paperwork.
Rosen: You know, to be honest, I did enjoy putting "Mental Institution" under "previous address."

Rachel: Lilac perfume. New girlfriend?
Cameron: I accidentally bought the wrong soap.
Bill: Really?
Cameron: Yeah.
Bill: You did? That's definitely the wrong soap, Hicks.

Cameron: Hey! This is a nice surprise, huh? Couldn't get through the day without a little Hicks fix? That was literally my best line.

Gary: Hicks is distracted by his girl problems. Ha. I don't have girl problems so I have complete focus.
Bill: You're having problems with Nina, huh?
Gary: No, he had breakfast with Dani Rosen. And she said it was "yummy." But Hicks won't tell me what they ate.
Bill: Is that so?
Gary: Wait, Hicks, was breakfast not really breakfast? Was breakfast sex?
Cameron: I am not having this conversation right now.
Gary: Hicks, I broke your sex code.
Bill: Dani Rosen?
Cameron: With either one of you.

Rachel: Hey, where's Nina? Has anyone heard from her?
Gary: Hicks hasn't. But he has heard from Dani. He calls her "baby," which is weird because they're the same age.
Cameron: Gary, I will kill you.
Gary: No, I'll kill you first. I get up at 7:42.
