Episode Quotes
Summer: You know, Cohen - your two hands on the wheel, and the wind blowing through your hair - you actually looked kinda hot.
Seth: Let me guess, Summer. You have a weakness for semen?
Summer: Ew, Cohen! And then there's that.

Summer: Thanks for getting my bathing suit wet, Cohen.
Ryan: (mocking Summer) Cohen. I can't believe you did that, Cohen.

Summer: Mr. Cooper's got a nice boat, huh?
Seth: Yeah, it's amazing what laundered money can buy.

Seth: I like him this way. He's a better listener ... Sorry, I get talkative around coma patients. It's a compensation thing.

Summer: I have an idea.
Seth: Are you gonna save Chrismakkuh again? Because I really liked that.

Lawyer: ... Then you won't mind if I record this deposition.
Seth: Sure record it. Release it on iTunes. I hope it's a really big hit.
Sandy: Just answer the questions.

Jimmy: I'm trying to protect my family, too.
Sandy: Right. Because family means so much to you.
Jimmy: What's that supposed to mean?
Sandy: That means what are you doing back in Newport? Caleb dies. Boom. Suddenly you show up.

Seth: Hoodie, wifebeater, leather jacket. It's the Ryan Atwood Escapist Ensemble.
