- Wondering if you're happy is a great shortcut to just being depressed.
- Men always feel that they have to fix things for women, but they're not doing anything. Some things just can't be fixed. Just be there, somehow that's hard for all of you.
- Whatever you think your life is going to be like, just know, it's not gonna be anything like that.
- Dorothea: What is that?
- Abbie: It's The Raincoats.
- Dorothea: Can't things just be pretty?
- Jamie: Pretty music is used to hide how unfair and corrupt society is.
- Dorothea: Ah, okay so... they're not very good, and they know that, right?
- Abbie: Yeah, it's like they've got this feeling, and they don't have any skill, and they don't want skill, because it's really interesting what happens when your passion is bigger than the tools you have to deal with it. It creates this energy that's raw. Isn't it great?
- Abbie: I gave him beer, and then I taught him how to verbally seduce women. Then we drove drunk, but I stopped that, and then he kissed Trish, and then we walked home.
- Dorothea: Ah.
- Abbie: You're not mad? You're mad.
- Dorothea: You get to see him out in the world, as a person. I never will.
- Abbie: [pulls a photo of Jamie from a stack of Polaroids] Just... there.
- Julie: Half the time I regret it.
- Jamie: Then why do you do it?
- Julie: Because half the time I don't regret it.
- Dorothea: [Treats bruises on Jamie's face] So what was the fight about?
- Jamie: Clitoral stimulation.
- Jamie: What's it like? For girls.
- Julie: What? Sex?
- Jamie: Orgasms.
- Julie: Do you really wanna know what it's like?
- Jamie: Yeah.
- Julie: I don't have them.
