    Nina: [surprised]

    Lisa: I wouldn't have thought she was your type!

    Nina: Wha-, she WASN'T my type! I was nine! I had a crush on the world and his wife, when I was nine!

    Bobbi: [comes in] Me too!

  • Lisa: I really want this, me and you. I've never felt like this before! Let's tell everyone!

    Nina: I gotta go. I can't do this just now, Lisa.

    Lisa: [looks disappointed]

    [later, Nina rushes in the kitchen]

    Lisa: I thought you'd done a runner on me.

    Nina: Not yet. But I'm thinking about it.

    Lisa: Of course you are. That''s what you always do.

  • Nina: Let me get this straight: Dad used the restaurant as collateral for a bet?

    Kary: Not exactly.

    Lisa: He used half of it.

    Nina: Oh, that's alright then. Had me worried for a minute.

  • Nina: Huh, you're a dark horse.

    Bobbi: Well, that's a stretch coming from black beauty.

  • Bobbi: Very soon, 'Morgal Productions' - that's 'Morgal Productions Mumbai', not 'Morgal Productions Maryhill' - prise and atone to cast their new bollywood blockbuster 'Love in a wet climate'!

    Nina: Why?

    Suman: There is no why.

  • Nina: [to Priya] He was the one who always said 'Listen to your heart'. He should have listened to his bloody heart, than it might not have packed up on him.


    Nina: How could he? We were gonna do this - together. We were gonna win the hat-trick together! How could he go and just... die?

    [starts to cry]

    Priya: [cradles her]

  • Nina: Dad had a secret.

    Priya: You mean his gambling? Ha, everybody knew about that.

  • Nina: [about her marriage with Sanyay] I mean, they had it all mapped out for me. Marry Sanjay, have lots of little Sanjay's, we'd have the 'Taj' and the 'Jewel'... huh. They saw us as this power cooking couple.

  • Nina: [about Sanjay] I just didn't love him.

    Lisa: No such thing.

    Nina: As love?

    Lisa: There isn't. Just a big con. See, your dad told you how to cook. My dad told me never gamble with something you're not prepared to lose.

  • Lisa: So, who are we up against?

    Nina: Okay. 'The Bengal Tiger'.

    Lisa: Pussycat?

    Nina: Unless it is under a new management.

    Lisa: It is.

    Nina: Ah... 'Bimal's Balti and Dosa House'?

    Lisa: Last year's winners.

    Nina: Hm... and then last, but never least: 'The Jewel in the Crown'

    [looking around]

    Nina: It's in the bag?

    Lisa: Oh yeah, it's in the bag.

  • Lisa: [about the little temple] It's beautiful, isn't it? Beautiful monument to eternal love.

    Nina: You don't believe in love.

    Lisa: Your dad said some king spent 22 years building it for his queen.

    Nina: Dead queen. Hah. It's a monument of grief.

    Lisa: Same thing. If he was from Nashville, he'd have written a song about it.

  • Nina: [trying to chose between two bunches of herbs]

    Lisa: Green and green. Any differences?

    Nina: Winning

    [throws one to Lisa]

    Nina: and losing

    [puts the second one back on the table]

    Nina: .

  • Nina: [gives Bobbie a dish from another participant]

    Bobbi: I've used all 20 of my Weight Watchers Points already today!

    Nina: Know thy enemy!

  • Nina: Go on. I need you to know the difference for when you taste mine.

    Lisa: [tastest the dish] Mh, it's delicious.

    Nina: It's terrible! They didn't marinate the meat long enough. The longer you marinate it, the more tender it becomes.

    Bobbi: [looks like he knows EXACTLY what is going on between the two girls]

    Nina: Taste... that.

    [feeds Lisa]

    Nina: Well?

    Lisa: That's better.

    Nina: What's better about it?

    Lisa: [constantly grinning] I don't know.

    Bobbi: [and now he looks as if he is totally sure]

  • Nina: [about the restaurant] Right. Let's see if I can remember how to fly this thing.

  • Nina: [Nina about cooking] It's all about chemistry. And the chemistry has to be right.

    Lisa: [totally fascinated... and not just by the cooking]

  • Lisa: [cuts chilli, gets chilli in her right eye, screams]

    Nina: Okay, okay, you need to wash it out with cold water immediately!

    Lisa: ARGH!

    Nina: Don't rub it, it'll make it worse!

    Lisa: Ha, NOW she tells me?

    Nina: [washes Lisa's eye with cold water, drys her face] Let me see... Aha, yeah, you'll live.


    Lisa: [chuckling] You sound like my doctor.

    Kary: [comes in] I thought that was meant to be me? What happened?

    Lisa: Oh, erm, got some Plutonium in the eye.

    Nina: [points at the table] Chilli.

    Kary: [very self-confident] Cold water. You need to wash it out.

    Nina: Is there an echo in here?

  • Raj: Nina, I hope that full plate is not a reflection on the food.

    Nina: Oh no, it's lovely, Raj. It's just... I'm not very hungry.

    Sanjay: Lovely?

    [... ]

    Sanjay: Come on, Nina. Be more specific than that. Tell us what you really think.

    Nina: [tastes it]

    Sanjay: I mean, don't rush it, mind you. Take your time. Wouldn't want you to make another snap decision. - Well?

    Nina: Technically it's very good.

    Sanjay: Technically.

    Nina: But there's something missing.

    Sanjay: Missing.

    Suman: Nina!

    Nina: All the ingredients are there, I can taste all the flavors. It's just... there's something... I don't know... It's the chemistry, it's not quite right.

  • Nina: [about her loving Lisa] My mum would never be able to accept it. I don't want to have to run again, Bobbie.

    Bobbi: You can't run for love, Nina-Bina. It just sneeks upon you... when you least expect it.

  • Nina: I'd give anything to be more like you.

    Bobbi: With my dress-sense deceit is not an option.

  • Suman: It's not the 'Taj' that Sanjay's interested in. You know that, don't you. Love isn't the be-all and end-all, Nina.

    Nina: I don't believe that. I can't believe that.

    Suman: You could have learned to love Sanjay, than you you'd never had left.

    Nina: Mum, look. You know... Dad used to tell me about your honeymoon at the Taj Mahal. And all the time that he talked about it he had this look on his face. THAT'S how I want someone to look when they talk about me. It's not Sanjay's fault, but he could never look like that.

  • Kary: Oh, what the hell. There's something I need to tell you, mum. I'm married. Her name's Janice and I pure love her.

    Suman: Well, seems I have a lot to learn about love.

    [hugs Sanji]

    Suman: My childrem seem to understand it much better than I do....

    [looking at Nina and Lisa]

    Suman: Any more bombshells?

    Nina: [looks afraid]

    Lisa: [looks at Nina]

    Priya: Come on, we gotta go.

  • Nina: [looking to Lisa] What?

    Lisa: [determined] Kiss me.

    Nina: [hesitant] We're on national television.

    Lisa: We are.

    Nina: ...

    Lisa: [goes away]

    Nina: [looks torn apart, than goes away too]

  • Suman: Nina?

    Nina: [sobbing] She's gone, Ma.

    Suman: Then why are you still here? Don't make the same mistake I did. I loved your dad, but I always knew, in my hardest heart of hearts, he wasn't the one.

    Nina: ...Raj?

    Suman: Trophies don't matter. The only thing that matters is love.

    [hugs Nina]

    Suman: Go on, hurry up. And don't you let that girl out of your sight again!

  • Lisa: [sees a text written underneath the wallpaper: 'Nina + Lorna - True love December 1988'; chuckling] Who is Lorna?

    Nina: I don't know, I have no idea!

    Lisa: Your dad said some king spent 25 years building it for his queen.

    Nina: Dead queen. Hah. It's a monument of grief.

    Lisa: Same thing. If it comes from love it's worth written a song about it.

  • Lisa: I really want this, me and you. I've never felt like this before! Let's tell everyone!

    Nina: I gotta go. I can't do this just now, Lisa.

    Lisa: [looks disappointed]

    Nina: Not yet. But I'm thinking about it.

    Lisa: Of course you are. That''s what you always do.

  • Nina: [about cooking some meat, quoting her father] Remember, every 5 minutes. Leave it any longer and the meat will dry out. And it'll taste like bloody shoeleather. Not that I've tasted shoeleather. Apart from Raj's bloody 'Chicken Shakuti' that is. Which is a crime against humanity.... And shoes.

  • Kary: Oh, what the hell. There's something I need to tell you, mum. I'm married. Her name's Janice and I pure love her.

    Nina: No are you crazy, I'm not gonna buy you a pizza. I don't know if you know how this works but you're the one buying me a pizza.

    Krishna: Okay.

    Nina: Okay what?

    Krishna: Okay I'll buy you a pizza, all you had to do was ask.

    Nina: Wait a minute, you just said that you were tapped out of cash.

    Krishna: I am, but it's not everyday that beautiful girl, like yourself, asks a guy like me out to pizza. Trust me, I'll find a away to scrap up the money.

    Nina: Cute. Very cute. I never heard a pickup line that devious before. I may have to try it myself sometime.

  • Nina: It's an email from Jagjit. Oh listen to this: "Loyal friend seeks suitable alliance for big-mouthed but well-intentioned roommate. Nineteen years, 5'11". Currently pursuing a degree in engineering. US Citizen... Girl should be very open-minded and understanding"

    Priya: Oh that is so cute! Oh my god, you have to go!

    Nina: No way, it's gonna take more than a fungal ad to makeup for last night.

    [Nina gets another email and is reading it]

    Nina: "Okay, how about a nice home-cooked dinner?"

    [looks around and see Jagjit in front of her]

    Nina: Jagjit...

    Jagjit: Come by the apartment at 8 o'clock tonight. You will be amazed. AND NO INDIAN STANDARD TIME!

  • Nina: Yeah to dance, I figured it would be nice to learn something about your own culture.

    Krishna: My culture? What do you want me to learn? That I come from a country where the concept of toilet paper is still a myth? That kids let their parents decide who their going to marry? What?

  • Krishna: I don't know what happened back there. Maybe I had a little too much to drink.

    Nina: So that's supposed to make it all right? I'm sorry, I just can't accept that as an excuse. Maybe I'm just a little old fashioned and traditional or maybe I'm just a little too Indian for your taste!

    Krishna: Too Indian? Why does it always have to be about Indian culture? You know, Why? Why can't it just be about us?

    Nina: 'Cause I am Indian. And if you can't stand anything Indian, there is no us.

  • Nina: I was just thinking of how mean I was to you. And I didn't try to see it from your side, I was being selfish and for that, I'm sorry.

    Krishna: No, Nina, I'm the one who should be sorry. I'm the one who was being selfish, insensitive, you were right. I was being an ass! I'm the one who should be saying I'm sorry!

    Nina: Okay.

    Krishna: Okay, what?

    Nina: Okay, I accept your apology. All you had to do was ask.

    Krishna: Wait a minute, I don't get it.

    Nina: It's not every day that a good-looking guy apologizes for his behavior. I mean a girl has got to take it when she can. I mean who knows when it'll happen again, right?

    Krishna: Cute, very cute. That's a clever line, where'd you pick it up?

    Nina: This A.B.C.D. tried to use it on me once, it was so pathetic.

    Thomas Leroy: Nina, what did you do?

    Nina: I felt it. Perfect. It was perfect.

  • Nina: I came to ask for the part.

    Thomas Leroy: The truth is when I look at you all I see is the white swan. Yes you're beautiful, fearful, and fragile. Ideal casting. But the black swan? It's a hard fucking job to dance both.

    Nina: I can dance the black swan, too.

    Thomas Leroy: Really? In four years every time you dance I see you obsessed getting each and every move perfectly right but I never see you lose yourself. Ever! All that discipline for what?

    Nina: [whispers] I just want to be perfect.

    Thomas Leroy: What?

    Nina: I want to be perfect.

    Thomas Leroy: [scoffs] Perfection is not just about control. It's also about letting go. Surprise yourself so you can surprise the audience. Transcendence! Very few have it in them.

    Nina: I think I do have it in me.

  • Thomas Leroy: You could be brilliant, but you're a coward.

    Nina: I'm sorry.

    Thomas Leroy: [yelling] Now stop saying that! That's exactly what I'm talking about. Stop being so fucking weak!

  • Erica: What happened to my sweet girl?

    Nina: She's gone!

  • Nina: It's about a girl who gets turned into a swan and she needs love to break the spell, but her prince falls for the wrong girl so she kills herself.

  • Nina: You put something in my drink.

    Lily: Yeah.

    Nina: And then you just took off in the morning?

    Lily: In the morning?

    Nina: Yeah, you slept over.

    Lily: [baffled] Um... no. Unless your name is Tom and you got a dick.

    Nina: But we...

    Lily: But we what, Nina?


    Lily: Wait... did you have some sort of lezzy wet dream about me?

    Nina: [whispers] Stop it.

    Lily: Oh my God? Oh my God! You did! You fantasized about me!

    Nina: [embarassed] Shut up!

    Lily: [gasps] Was I good?

  • Nina: Beth! I'm so sorry to hear you're leaving the company.

    Beth Macintyre: What did you do to get this role? He always said you were such a frigid little girl. What did you do to change his mind? Did you suck his cock?

    Nina: Not all of us have to.

    Beth Macintyre: [chuckles] You fucking whore! You fucking little whore!

  • Nina: It's my turn!

  • Erica: Shh, it's okay. I'm here. You were scratching all night.

    Nina: Where's my clock?

    Erica: Don't worry about that.

    Nina: What time is it?

    Erica: Shh.

    Nina: My show is tonight.

    Erica: No, no, no.

    [pushes Nina back on the pillow]

    Erica: No, don't worry. I called the theater and I told them you weren't feeling well.

    Nina: [jumps out of bed] I have to go!

    Erica: No, no lie down!

    Nina: Let go of me!

    [notices the door handle is missing]

    Erica: You're staying in here until you feel better.

    Nina: Where is it?

    Erica: This role's destroying you.

  • Nina: [on the phone] He picked me, mommy! I'm the new swan queen!

  • Thomas Leroy: Are you okay?

    Nina: I'm fine.

    Thomas Leroy: Nina.

    Nina: What?

    Thomas Leroy: I've already asked Lily.

    Nina: Have you announced it?


    Nina: After Beth do you really need another controversy? I'm here, Thomas. I'm doing it.

    Thomas Leroy: The only person standing in your way is you. It's time to let her go. Lose yourself.

  • Thomas Leroy: What's going on?

    Nina: [crying] Lily! You made her my alternate?

    Thomas Leroy: Well there's always an alternate. Lily is the best choice.

    Nina: No, but she wants my role.

    Thomas Leroy: Every dancer in the world wants your role.

    Nina: No, this is different. She's after me. She's trying to replace me!

    Thomas Leroy: Nobody's after you.

    Nina: [crying harder] No, please believe me!

  • Andrew: You haven't told me who you are.

    Nina: I'm a dancer.

    Andrew: No, I meant your name.

    Nina: Oh, Nina.

    Tom: So are you two sisters?

    Nina: No.

    Lily: Yes! Blood sisters.

    Nina: We dance in the same company.

    Tom: Ah, ballerinas. No wonder you two look alike.

    Lily: So, you know, Tom and Jerry here are gay lovers.

    Andrew: I've never been to the ballet.

    Lily: Well then you are definitely not gay.

    Tom: I think it's kind of boring though, isn't it?

    Nina: No it's not!

    Lily: No. You know what? It's just not for everyone.

  • Erica: No! Please! You're not well!

    Nina: [yelling] Let go of me!

    Erica: You can't handle this!

    Nina: I can't? I'm the Swan Queen, you're the one who never left the corps!

    Erica: [yelling] Nina!

  • Thomas Leroy: I don't want there to be any boundaries between us.

    Nina: No, me neither.

    Thomas Leroy: So, you got a boyfriend?

    Nina: No.

    Thomas Leroy: And you've had many in the past?

    Nina: A few but no one serious.

    Thomas Leroy: You're not a virgin, are you?

    Nina: [nervously] No.

    Thomas Leroy: So there is nothing to be embarrassed about.

  • Lily: I don't think we ever officially met. I'm Lily.

    Nina: Hi, Nina.

    Lily: Yes, our new swan queen! You must be so excited. Are you freaking out?

    Nina: [chuckles] Yeah.

    Lily: Yeah, it's okay. I would be losing my mind.

  • Lily: A rough start, huh? Must have been pretty humiliating.

    Nina: Get out of my room!

    Lily: See, I'm just worried about the next act. I'm not sure you're feeling up to it.

    Nina: Stop. Please stop!

    Lily: How about I dance the black swan for you?

  • Nina: What happened?

    Thomas Leroy: She walked into the street and got hit by a car. And you know what? I'm almost sure she did it on purpose.

    Nina: How do you know?

    Thomas Leroy: Because everything Beth does comes from within. From some dark impulse. I guess that's what makes her so thrilling to watch. So dangerous. Even perfect at times, but also so damn destructive.

  • Erica: Do you have any idea what time it is?

    Nina: [drunk] Uh... late?

    Erica: Where have you been?

    Nina: To the moon!

    Lily: And back.

    Erica: You've been drinking.

    Nina: Ding ding ding ding!

    Erica: What else?

    Nina: Huh?

    Erica: [raises voice] What else have you been doing?

    Nina: Oh, you want to know their names?


    Erica: You need to sleep this off.

    Nina: No, there were two. There was Tom, there was Jerry.


    Erica: [interrupts] Be quiet, Nina!

    Nina: And I fucked them both!

    Erica: [yells] Shut your mouth!

  • Nina: It's my turn to be the Black Swan!

  • Nina: I just want to be perfect.

  • Nina: It's sad.

    Veronica: What's sad?

    Nina: Beth's such a beautiful dancer.

    Galina: Yeah, so is my grandmother.

  • Nina: It's called privacy, I'm not 12 anymore!

  • Lily: I can't believe he calls her that. It's so gross.

    Nina: I think it's sweet.

    Lily: Little princess? He probably calls every girl that.

    Nina: No way! That's just for Beth.

    Lily: I bet he'll be calling you little princess any day now.

    Nina: I don't know about that.

    Lily: Sure he will. You just got to let him lick your pussy.

  • Nina: What are you doing here?

    Lily: I just came by to apologize. You're right, I should have never spoken to him about you.

    Erica: [interrupts] Sweetheart.

    Nina: Give me a second.

    Erica: Your dinner.

    Nina: Mom! Please?

    Lily: Oh, she's a trip.


    Nina: How do you know where I live?

    Lily: I have my ways.

    [notices Nina's nervousness]

    Lily: Jesus, relax! I got it from Susie in the office. Look, I just feel really shitty about what I did and I just really want to make it up to you, so how about I take you out to dinner?

    Nina: I don't think...

    Lily: [interrupts] Ok, that's fine! What about drinks?

    Erica: Sweetie, you need to rest.

    Lily: [chuckles] Jesus!

    Nina: Wait.

    [goes into the apartment to grab shoes and a coat]

    Erica: What are you doing?

    Nina: Going out!

  • Erica: You're in a good mood.

    Nina: He promised to feature me more this season.

    Erica: Well, he certainly should. You've been there long enough and you're the most dedicated dancer in the company.

  • Nina: Should I go again?

    Thomas Leroy: No thanks Nina! I've seen enough.

  • Erica: Has he tried anything with you? He has a reputation. I have a right to be concerned, Nina. You've been staying late so many nights rehearsing. I hope he isn't taking advantage.

    Nina: He's not.

    Erica: Good. I just don't want you to make the same mistake I did.

    Nina: Thanks.

    Erica: Not like that. I just mean as far as my career was concerned.

    Nina: What career?

    Erica: The one I gave up to have you.

    Nina: You were 28 and only in.


    Erica: Only what?

    Nina: Nothing.

    Erica: What!

    Nina: Nothing.

  • Nina: It's just a rash.

    Erica: [panicking] A rash? What are you talking about?

    Nina: It was worse a few days ago. It's fine already.

    Erica: You've been scratching yourself again.

  • Erica: You'll probably get to dance the Pas de Quatre again. That's such a wonderful part. Or maybe he'll make you a big swan. Either way, you'll shine.

    Nina: I know.

    Erica: Everything will be better in the morning. It always is.


    Erica: Sweet girl.

  • Lily: So, how is he? Thomas?

    Nina: I wouldn't know.

    Lily: Oh come on.

    Nina: I really don't want to talk about that.

    Lily: [sarcastically] Ah, okay! You really need to relax.

  • Thomas Leroy: Can you tell me what the fuck happened?

    [yells in French]

    Nina: I wasn't my fault. He dropped me!

    Thomas Leroy: It's a fucking disaster!

  • Thomas Leroy: And you enjoy making love?

    Nina: [surprised] Excuse me?

    Thomas Leroy: Oh come on, sex! Do you enjoy it?

    [Nina nervously laughs]

    Thomas Leroy: Well, we need to be able to talk about this.

  • Erica: You're working yourself too hard. We all have off days.

    Nina: If that girl hadn't barged in.

    Erica: I'm sure she didn't mean to. Remember when you first started? If I hadn't taken you to each of your classes you would have been completely lost.

    Nina: I'm going to talk to him tomorrow and tell him I finished it.

    Erica: You don't need to lie. You won't convince him one way or the other.


    Erica: Sweetheart, I know it's disappointing. You start getting older there's all this ridiculous pressure. God knows I understand. But it's alright.

  • Erica: Sounds like quite an evening. Wish I could have been there.

    Nina: You know I asked.

    Erica: I know you did, Susie told me. I guess he wanted you all to himself.

    Nina: That's not why.

    Erica: I don't blame him.

    [looks at Nina's earrings]

    Erica: Where did you get these?

    Nina: They're fake.

    Erica: Fooled me.

    Nina: [reacts to Erica undressing her] I can do it!

    Erica: He must have been by your side all night showing you off.

  • Jim: Would you like a Hershey bar?

    Nina: Oh yes, please

    Jim: So would I kid, have you got one?

  • Nina: Like sunlight, sunset, we appear, we disappear. We are so important to some, but we are just passing through.

  • Jean Gilkyson: Do you think I'm a shitty mother?

    Nina: No. I think you're doing the best you can.

  • Einar Gilkyson: Do you believe they're still sending junk mail to my boy?

    Nina: Well, maybe the dead are flattered to get a letter. Ever think of that?

    Einar Gilkyson: I'll let you know when I'm gone. Maybe I'll send you a postcard from the other side.

  • Einar Gilkyson: If you ever get depressed, pull up a chair to your kitchen sink and turn on the tap.

    Nina: Well, if I ever get depressed, remind me not to come you for advice.

  • Nina: I wonder if it's hard being that drunk this early.

    Einar Gilkyson: Oh, it's easy if you don't stop drinking all night.

  • Nina: I thought you said you were used to being on your feet.

    Jean Gilkyson: I'm not used to telling everyone I meet where I've been the last ten years.

    Nina: Well... tell 'em you went crazy. Tell 'em you've been locked up.

    Jean Gilkyson: That's what I've been telling 'em.

  • Nina: How's Mitch doing?

    Einar Gilkyson: Dreaming about the sea.

  • Nina: [Gives Michael and Eddie two beers] These are on the house.

    Eddie: Wow.

    Michael Kovak: You gonna get heat for giving away beers?

    Nina: Not if they don't know.

    Eddie: How about for banging the customers?

    Nina: Screw you, Eddie.

    [to Michael]

    Nina: Drink up. I'm off in ten. Lickety-split.

    Eddie: Lickety-split? Pbb. You better make the most of that, before they chop your wiener off.

    [They cheer and clank bottles]

    Eddie: Goodbye wiener.

  • Jack Baker: Would you stop that please.

    Nina: [while loudly playing with her paddle ball] You want me to make some coffee? How 'bout some eggs? I can make you some eggs, if you want.

    Jack Baker: Knock it off with that fucking thing... driving me nuts! Jack you want eggs, Jack you want coffee. You're not my housekeeper, I'm not your fucking father. I can't babysit you every time your mama gets an itch!

  • Nina: [realizes Ritchie and Joey are cheating at strip poker with Despie and herself]

    Nina: Hey, wait a minute there's something fishy going on here! You know, in a couple minutes we're going to be naked, and then what?

    Richie: Then we play one more hand.

    Nina: For what?

    Joey: [whistles casually]

    Nina: For What?

    Joey: Then we get to do whatevah' we want to do.

    Despie Galasso: OK, that's IT! We got to back to the party!

    Richie: What the party? What are you talkin' about we're just havin' some fun here.

    Nina: C'mon Despie, we don't have to stop playing.

    Richie: We've just been lucky that's all. I know you're going to get lucky, you're going to win the next one I just know it.

    Joey: Just playin' a nice little innocent game here.

  • Nina: I say timing is everything.

    James: I thought it was location.

  • Sarah: [Cecily is talking about sleeping with their principal] Gross.

    Nina: Like, "2 Girls, 1 Cup" gross.

  • Nina: We could take turns reading each other's blogs. It'll be like theater.

    Chapin Wright: I'd rather be shot. Twice.

  • Chapin Wright: [Rules of Triple Dog. Everyone has put all their money and their most prized possession into the 'pot'] Rule one, everyone gets and dare and gives a dare. Rule two, you must complete the dare that's given to you, and if you don't

    [Turns clippers on and off]

    Chapin Wright: you get your head shaved.

    Sarah: Like, no hair, bald?

    Chapin Wright: That's the game.

    Nina: [laughing] Cool.

    [Cecily looks at her in disbelief]

    Nina: What?

    Chapin Wright: Now, if you know there's a dare you can't do, you can challenge the person who dared you, and they have to do it. But if they do it, you get shaved. So, don't go daring people to do thing you wouldn't do, because it backfires.

    Liza: What kind of dares?

    Chapin Wright: Anything goes. But you can't dare someone to shave their head.

    Liza: Why not?

    Chapin Wright: Because that's against the rules!

  • Nina: Hey, Eve.

    Eve: What's up?

    Cicely: Hey.

    Chapin Wright: Oh, I forgot. I'm invisible today.

    Cicely: Hello, Chapin.

    Chapin Wright: What's the bitch-uation, Cecily? Has anyone ever told you you look exactly like Kelly Ripa?

    Cicely: [Flattered] Oh.

    Sarah: I love Kelly Ripa!

  • Nina: [in Chinese] The world is always changing. Every day it's changing. Everything in life is changing. We have to look inside ourselves to find what stays the same, such as loyalty, our shared history and love for each other. In them, the truth of the past lives on.

    Nina: The evil he creates, he can also destroy.

    Dr. Edelman: That would be murder.

  • Nina: Think what you're doing, Doctor. To bring him back again would unleash worse than murder upon humanity.

    Dr. Edelman: That helpless body is man's responsibility.

    Nina: Man's responsibility is to his fellow man.

  • Dr. Edelman: I'll operate tomorrow, Nina.

    Nina: Then you must operate on Mr. Talbot. The moon will be full in a few days. We can't let him suffer again.

    Dr. Edelman: But you - You've waited such a long time.

    Nina: Then I can wait a little longer. It won't make any difference.

    Nina: Are you serious? They just tried to kill us and now you're going to go ask for help? What happened to never leaving your vehicle?

    Craig: Look if we need advice from 101 things to do in the outback we'll let you know.

    Nina: But it just rammed us up the arse like we weren't even there? What the fuck are these truck drivers taking? Seriously where would they go?

  • Craig: I reckon one of the drivers shot his mate... this place does strange things too people.

    Nina: Unless the truck started driving on its own.

    Marcus: You drove us here.

    Craig: What am I supposed to do?

    Robert Teller: Forever is the day the war ends.

  • Nina: Come on Bob. What do you want? What are you looking for?

    Robert Teller: What do I want? Oh, nothing much. Just a tall, slender, wide-eyed girl. A girl with soft hands and a soft voice. Someone who speaks my language. Someone who smiles when you suddenly feel well that's a real particular smile. Its a smile for me! Someone you can bear to look at when the last gun's been fired. You got anything like that in stock, Madame? Huh? Are you well supplied with that article?

  • Nina: Walk. Walk! - - Not like that. Not like somebody who's going to the guillotine. Walk like a woman who's pretty and knows that men like to look at her.

    Fernand Lacaud: Without curiosity, my dear, there would be no wise men.

    Nina: And this curiosity, did you satisfy it?

    Fernand Lacaud: Yes. To an extent, my dear, to an extent.
