- Alex: OK, let's do this. What's my gay category?
- Derrick: OK, you're a twink, but I've seen you eat so you're a sloppy twink, which is not as much fun as it sounds. Penny, you drink a lot, you are really loud and you have a lot of embarrassing stories about dating. Bitch, you are a hag.
- Penny: But I used to be a beard so I take that as a win.
- Jane: I thought I was a hag.
- Derrick: No, you're a top, plain and simple.

- Max: I have a little bit of disposable income these days.
- Jane: Max, you cannot have disposable income when you owe us 11,000 dollars and three cats.
- Max: You'll get those cats when you get those cats, Jane. And the reason I have all this extra casheesh is because my new roommate decided to pay me five months' rent in advance.
- Dave: Ah yes, el nuevo roommate. When are we going to meet this guy?
- Max: Oh no, you won't. I told that guy that we are going to live totally separate lives. I will not make the same mistake I made with my last roommate and get all invested in his personal business.
- Dave: That was me.
- Max: Yeah, and I will not make that blunder again.
