Jemma: Ah, Ray Drecker, you know when you get all soft and serious it's...it's very hard to turn you down.Ray: [voice-over while making love to Jemma] This was it. No more bullshit. No Randall, no force-fed lines, no flat tires by the side of the road. It was just me and her making out in my tent with the wind howling outside. It felt different this time. It felt real.

Lenore: I don't believe you.
Jessica: [yelling] I have the mother fucking power!!Patty: [referring to Ray] Well, having sex with that guy is like doing coke. Cause it's expensive, but you really want it, so you buy it and then you get this huge awesome rush.
Tanya: That's a good thing, right? A huge awesome rush.
Patty: But then you come down from your high and you're broke and you feel even lonelier and more pathetic than you did before and you wanna kill yourself.
Tanya: So I guess you won't be interested in our bi-monthly package?

Take it or leave it.Ray: [voice-over] I used to have a family. I used to have a wife, kids, a house, a job. Now, well, now I have my dick. A dick and a dream. If that's not the American way, what is?
