Episode Quotes
Millie: But the shower…
Alex: I like to leave it on…I like the sound of the rain.

Haley: I get it, you got married in high school, had a son at graduation, and now you play basketball and take pictures with drunken sluts with perfect teeth.

Skills: Mouth knows I’m afraid of creatures. That’s why I know he did this. You think you can catch it?
Jamie: We can catch it.
Skills: No, you can catch it.

Nathan: If she does file the paternity suit, then do what you have to do.
Mouth: I hope it doesn’t come to that.
Nathan: Yeah, me too.

Dan: I’m rich and I’m dying.
Rachel: Works for me.

Rachel: Hanging out in strip clubs waiting to die?
Dan: Could be worse.
Rachel: Could be better.

Clay: How are you holding up?
Quinn: If I was one of your clients I’d be listed as day-to-day.

Clay: This is the amount we’re willing to pay you.
Renee: It’s empty.
Clay: Yeah, it’s empty because you’re a lying bitch and we’re not paying you a dime. Go to Hell.
