  • I'm Graham and I like girls. A lot.
  • I thought it was just an act, but you really are sweet as fucking pie, aren't you?


  • You hormonal hussy! Get up! Get up right now!
  • It's your choice; you can run off with Megan and turn into a raging bull-dyke, or you can do the simulation and graduate and lead a normal life.
  • Foreplay is for sissies!
  • Megan, you stop it this instant! Because you will wallow in the smut of your homosexual depravity for the rest of your life!"


  • Boys! Don't you see how sad and pathetic you all are? Always wanting something you can't have. If I catch you looking at another man like that ever again, you'll be watching sports...the whole weekend!

Mary: Looks like we got you just in time. What are you? About 17?

Megan: swearing?
Graham: No, inappropriate like fucking.

Graham: You are who you are, the trick is not getting caught!
Megan: Then why are you here?
Graham: I got caught.

Sinead: If that little twink would've narced on me, heads would have rolled.
Graham: What would you have done? Tied her to your bed and zapped her to death? Or are you running low on batteries?

Megan: You didn't tell me you were taking me to a gay bar!
Graham: Where else would we go?

Jan: Everyone thinks I'm this big dyke because I wear baggy pants and play sports and I'm not pretty like other girls. But all I really want is a big, fat weiner up my...

Joel: You're more than just a sissy. You're nice, and clean, and smart...and sexy and firm and luscious and...
