Episode Quotes
Seth: Hey, Che.
Che: Seth! Hey, you look --
Seth: Not good. I know. So, that thing you said, about the animus?
Che: I was right, wasn't I? See, the flesh lies, but the aura never does.

Seth: That would have been better. Someone says they don't wanna marry you, you're supposed to break up. Now we've gotta keep on dating like everything's normal when there's this ginormous ... elephant in the room.
Ryan: Yeah, there's an elephant?
Seth: Yeah, the "I don't want to marry you" elephant.

Summer: They're gonna call.
Ryan: Maybe we should call.
Taylor: They're gonna call ... right?

Che: Seth, you put something out into the universe and you didn't get it back. I mean, I can't imagine what a blow that must have been to your male animus. You've been emasculated.
Seth: My masculinity is intact.

Henri-Michele: Je t'aime, Peaches.
Taylor: Oh, no, no, Henri, you don't have to say that.
Henri-Michele: But I love to say that. Because it is the truth! I will say it a thousand times, if you like.
Taylor: Wow. That's, uh, okay, yeah. Say it a thousand times.
Henri-Michele: I love you un, I love you deux, I love you trois ...

Che: Perhaps I was wrong, Seth is actually stronger than we thought.
Summer: I wouldn't leave town just yet.

Kaitlin: So what'd you end up getting her?
Ryan: Huh?
Kaitlin: Don't tell me you came with no gift.
Ryan: Pssh. I don't need a gift.
Kaitlin: Ryan, Pepe Le Pew is buying her a house.
Ryan: She's moving in with him?
Kaitlin: You honestly got her nothing? I mean, you couldn't have even gone to the Qwik-e-Mart to get her a stuffed animal and some gummi bears?
Ryan: Gummi bears.
Kaitlin: Talk is cheap, Ryan. If you're gonna go toe-to-toe with this Frenchie you're gonna need to step your game up.
Ryan: I can't believe I'm getting advice from a 15-year old.
Kaitlin: A 15-year old who's right.

Taylor: It's a breakup. How else do you explain seventeen unreturned phone calls?
Summer: (with her mouth full of cereal) Seventeen?
