Episode Quotes
Piper: Less than 24 hours and you're making a joke? Someone is dead.
Luschek: Jesus Christ, you having your red dot special? Communist in your fun-house? Crimson tide?
Piper: Okay, perfect, by all means. Attribute my legitimate feelings of sadness to menses.
Nicky: Did you really just say menses?
Luschek: That's gross.
Piper: You're gross.
Nicky: Great comeback.

Pornstache: Heavy stuff, huh?
Bennett: Yeah, it's hard to believe. You know?
Pornstache: What are you doing tonight?
Bennett: Nothing. Probably going to watch some SportsCenter, hit the hay.
Pornstache: You, um, you wanna get a drink?
Bennett: You know, I would, but I have this thing...
Pornstache: Come on! Don't be a pussy, one drink. You can watch your gay sports show tomorrow.

Crazy Eyes: I'm going to make sure you get home today, no weird stuff.
Piper: know this doesn't mean I'm your wife, right?
Crazy Eyes: I'm in much more of a loving being single phase anyway. Don't wanna be tied down! You feel me?
Piper: Oh, I feel you.

Alex: Hey, I'm proud of you.
Piper: Yeah?
Alex: Yeah. That was really brave. I mean, it was dumb, but brave.
Piper: You know. I don't think that anyone has ever used that word to describe me in the history of the universe.
