Eli and Ashley Cardiff go on a date to a wine-tasting demonstration but soon break up into giggles. Afterward, Eli notes that she's been getting them into trouble wherever they go, including a bed in a museum where she wanted to make out. Ashley admits she's had trouble keeping herself form ripping his clothes off but he notes they barely know each other. They go back to Eli's apartment and rip each others' clothing off while talking about their backgrounds...

Episode Quotes
Eli: You look beautiful today, Patti. That color suits you.
Patti: Oh! You finally got yourself some. I was wondering if you'd taken a vow of chastity.

Eli: Thanks for coming.
Keith: Hey, no problem. I was just thinking how my day could use a good body cavity search.

Genny Clarke: Sure. I'll testify... when pigs can fly faster than the speed of light--in effect, slowing time so that when they return to Earth, they'll find out that Hell has frozen over.

(to Eli)
Nathan: Oh my god, you finally let the little attorney out of his briefs.

Taylor: What do you think? This makes me look fat, right?
Matt: No, I think it's the pregnancy that does that. But the pregnancy also makes you glow.
Taylor: I look like a boat.
Matt: A beautiful pregnant boat.

Taylor: You know, I hate it when you're right.
Matt: That's why I rarely am.

Maggie: I just... I told her you were special.
Eli: Ohh! That's code for weirdo! No wonder she acted strange when I told her about my vision. You had her primed to think that I'm crazy town.
Maggie: Well , why did you tell her about your vision in the first place? You had three dates.
Eli: Four.
Maggie: Oh, right, I forgot--third date, sex, fourth date, tell her you're a prophet.

Eli: Think of prophet as a schmancy title like duke, or viscount.
Ashley Cardiff: That's an interesting perspective.
Eli: What is a viscount, anyway?
Ashley Cardiff: I don't know. Half a count?

Keith: You ready?
Eli: Keith, I've got mojo, and it's rising. I'm going to kick some serious ass, I can feel it.
Keith: Okay, you're frightening me now.

Beth Keller: Ashley's a very lucky woman, Eli. You're a catch.
Eli: Oh, yeah? How come you never returned my calls after our night at college?
Beth Keller: It was your first time. Our "night" was a little more like 30 seconds.
Eli: Oh yeah.
