Episode Quotes

Seth: Dude, what are we we do? I don't want to get thrown out of the hotel. I love the hotel. I wanna marry the hotel and have little gambling-addicted alcoholic kids with it. Is that wrong?

Summer: I have been crying actual tears over that ass and he's kissing randoms.

Summer: Way to go, Whore Boy.

Seth: Why quit when we're ahead?
Ryan: 'Cause if we don't, Angry Trucker Hat Guy is gonna hurt me.

Kirsten: There are four male strippers, dressed as firemen dancing in our living room.
Sandy: Theme-stripping. You gotta love that.
Kirsten: Oh, wait, now they're not dressed as anything at all.
Sandy: Try to keep them off of the furniture, honey.

Summer: Get away from him, whore!
Seth: Wait wait wait! She's not a whore. She goes to UNLV.
Summer: Oh, okay. Get away from him, skank.
