Episode Quotes
Ben: What do you want?
Larry: Well.. more than anything, I guess, to be on the stage. You know what stopped me? Fear of what my family would say. But... now that they're, well, you know, dead, and, uh, I have terminal brain cancer, I figure... maybe I should just go for it, you know? Chase that dream. What about you? what dream are you chasing? Or should I say, what dream is chasing you?

Larry: I'm trying very hard not to judge you.
Ben: Me? You murdered your entire family.
Larry: Yes. But I was never unfaithful.

Vivien: Well, I appreciate it. I'm not usually much of a cupcake girl myself...
Constance: Oh! They're not for you. At your age? You might as well just Krazy Glue a stick of butter to your ass.
