Episode Quotes
Wade: You were right, I was wrong. Under the table is better than on the table.
Zoe: Well, I just thought if you were the heroic WWII pilot, and I was the naughty air force medic, we'd probably have to protect ourselves from any bombing.
Wade: No, I get it. It's very well thought out.
Zoe: Yeah, the best part is, this whole no strings thing we got going on. I mean, I don't have to obsess whether you're going to call.
Wade: I don't have to call!
Zoe: I don't need to hear about your day, or worse, your car.
Wade: I don't have to new shoes, or what you ate for lunch. God, it's great.
Zoe: It's amazing. Why didn't anyone tell me about casual sex before?
Wade: It is odd they didn't teach a course on this in med school.
Zoe: Hey! Tonight, let's be strangers who meet on a train.
Wade: Train? Who travel's by train anymore? What are we, hobo's?
Zoe: Yes, Wade. We're hobo's. Sexy hobo's on a train.

Zoe: Ooh, pancakes, you read my mind! Now I know why athletes carbo load. You want to know what I mean?
Lavon: No.
Zoe: Why I'm so tired?
Lavon: No.
Zoe: The sex, 'cause it's like a marathon. Only no one is handing you water every couple of miles. Although, that would be useful.
Lavon: No, no, no.

George: I don't know how to break up with her without hurting her feelings, Wade.
Wade: Well, as luck would have it, you have hit upon my area of expertise. My friend, allow me to introduce you to The Compliment Sandwich.
George: Compliment Sandwich?
Wade: On top you've got you're bread. Nice little piece of flattery like, "your beauty humbles a simple man like me." Then quickly get to the meat, "you and I both know, timing isn't right for us." And then before she has a chance to argue, you hit her with one final compliment. Uhh, "a woman as perfect as you deserves it all."
George: It's a Complement Sandwich.

Brick: You're failing chemistry?
Magnolia: Maybe I would be doing better if I wasn't starving!
