- I'm not lost. Somebody just moved my street.
- Violet, I saw how hard it was on your Mom when she didn't make it, but if she was here she'd tell me to shut up, wish you luck and give you a big hug. I'm not going to give you a big hug and I'm not going to wish you luck, but I am going to shut up, sit here with my coffee and pretend to be mad. Is that okay?
- Okay, everybody, shut up! I'd like you to meet my new girl, whose name is... Jersey! Jersey, is an ex kindergarten teacher, and a former nun, who just escaped from the convent, and is tired of being the only virgin in New York City! Would anyone like to buy her a drink?
- Is this a church meeting or is this a bar? Make some noise!
- Violet: Hi, I'm Violet Sanford, I just recently moved to New York and I was wondering if you would give my tape to one of your artists.
- Receptionist: Violet, that is so cute. Now let me tell you about me. My name is Wendy, and I first moved to new York when I was 21 to be a dancer, but I broke my big toe. and then I got knocked up by this actor who dumped me to join the peace corp, so for the last 16 years I've been raising my daughter all by myself and then two weeks ago she tells me that she is a bisexual and she hates me more than any person on this planet. Now, tell me how I can help you please, cos I'm dying to make your dreams come true.
- Lil: That's Rachel, you can learn a lot from her.
- Violet: She just cut some guy's ponytail off.
- Lil: Yeah, the court ordered her to take anger-management classes after she pummeled a customer for grabbing her ass. He pressed charges, I gave her a raise. Cheers!
- Cammie: I'm Cammie, the Russian tease.
- Violet: Violet, the Jersey nun.
- Cammie: We all play our little parts. That one's Rachel, the New York bitch. Only Rachel really is a bitch, and I really am a tease.
- Lil: Cammie, you can only be a tease if you stop sleepin' around, babe.
- Cammie: Yeah, I keep forgetting that part!
- Girl: Can I ask you something?
- Lil: What?
- Girl: What does Coyote Ugly mean?
- Lil: Did you ever wake up sober after a one night stand, and the person you're next to is lying on your arm, and they're so ugly, you'd rather chew off your arm then risk waking 'em? That's coyote ugly.
- Girl: My God. Well, why would you name your bar after something like that?
- Lil: Oh, 'cause Cheers was taken.
- Bill: I only got three rolls of film, I hope that's enough.
- Violet: Dad, I'm only singing one song.
- Bill: Right. I better go get another one.
