- Ritchie: Why is everyone's car so much bigger than ours?

- Christine: [shrugs] Look at our car.
- Richard: How's my little third-grader?
- Richie: I look ridiculous in these clothes.
- Richard: Yeah... you kinda do.
- Christine: Richard, don't make this harder for me.
- Richard: I'm sorry. [to Richie] Cool pants, is that Rayon?
- Christine: [about her dry spell] Sex used to be my thing. God, in-fact senior year in high school I was a bit of a slut. That is what I was known for.
- Richard: Mind if I use your bathroom?
- Christine: Oh.
- Richard: I got to make a pit stop, not a full pit stop just an oil change. I'm going to pee.

- Christine: Oh, come on, it hasn't been that bad, has it? I mean, didn't doing it in your car last week make you feel like a teenager?
- Burton: Yeah, until I got home and I had to ice... everything.
- Christine: No kidding, I got a bruise from knee to nipple.
- Richard: It shouldn't be this difficult. I mean I said 'I love you' on our first date, and you said it back to me.
- Christine: We had just seen Ghost. I would have told the movie-usher I loved him.

- Christine: It worked out pretty good... except for the divorce.
The Other F Word [1.06]Edit
- Matthew: What's going on?

- Christine: No, the other "F" word—the gay one.
- Frank: What are the families like?
- Christine: Great families—very involved.
- Frank: But would you describe them as having good values?

- Hillary: No.
Exile on Lame Street [1.11]Edit
- [Christine is trying desperately to get into a sold out Rolling Stones concert]
- Christine: Sir, uh, I'm sorry, let me just explain to you my situation. Okay, my nine-year-old is in there with his father and his new girlfriend, and there's a very strong possibility that he's gonna let him go to the bathroom on his own.
- Ticket Window Clerk: I'm so sorry. I didn't, I didn't know. We keep two emergency tickets available for situations like this. Is the fourth row okay?
- Christine: That would be great.
- Ticket Window Clerk: OK, uh let me just get those for you. [looking questioningly around the booth] Where do we keep them? Duh, they're right here! [he reaches up and slams the window blind shut in her face]
- Christine: He's not getting the tickets?
- Matthew: Uh, no, sweetie, he's not.
Some of My Best Friends Are Portuguese [1.12]Edit
- Christine: Do you ever let your armpit hair grow, just to see how long it can get?
- Belinda: Ew, no. Do you?
- Christine: Nooo...
- Christine: Well, I'm leaving. I want to thank you for a particularly humiliating afternoon.
- Belinda: Are you mad at me?
- Christine: Mad at you? Oh no, that was great. I don't know which part was my favorite: serving drinks to the "Meanie Moms" or watching Marly's husband massage your gums with his tongue.
- Belinda: I know. I'm sorry. I should have locked the door.
- Christine: Yeah, that's pretty much the only thing that was wrong with it. You know, I'm not Marly's biggest fan but she really doesn't deserve this.
- Belinda: I know. It's wrong, but I hope that you and I can still be friends.
- Christine: Yeah, I don't think so.
- Belinda: Why, because I'm Portuguese? Because I'm a maid?
- Christine: Ah, no, it's because, well, you're kind of a whore.
A Fair to Remember [1.13]Edit
- Richard: What am I doing?!
- Matthew: Apparently my sister.
- Christine: I was vulnerable, I was having a hard day! You took advantage of me!
- Richard: You put your hands down my pants!
- Burton: Christine, I'm sorry. I know you were probably kind of surprised to see that I was seeing someone so soon after we broke up. But I really didn't think it would bother you, especially since you're the one who broke up with me.
- Christine: Oh, no, it didn't bother me. I've seen people too, lots. I'm the town factory for God's sake. You can't close me down.
- Christine: Stripper boots! Those weren't stripper boots! I'll have you know those were hooker boots!
