Episode Quotes
Summer: Strictly ganja - What's of the earth is of the greatest worth.

Caleb: What's all this?
Julie: What does it look like?
Caleb: It looks like one of your movies.

Summer: Where other than The Bait Shop are tickets plentiful and the band plays quiet enough to talk over?

Lance: No pre-nup?
Julie: I think a porn scandal more than nullifies that.

Carter: Could you possibly find a driver tonight? We failed to make use of the silver bucket.
Server: Are you staying locally?
Carter: Ah, no. Orange County, actually.
Server: Ew.

David: Also, we're wondering about Cosmo Girl. Her magic flask. Could she get her power from like a magic sport drink, instead? The thing is, legal's like worried about lawsuits from the parents of teen alcoholics. Um... oh, the Ironist. Boy, a little cerebral.
Seth: Is he being ironic?
