  • Well, as I was saying, it costs a lot to be authentic, ma'am. And one can't be stingy with these things because you are more authentic the more you resemble what you've dreamed of being.
  • Just don't disappear again. I like to say good-bye to the people I love, even if it's only to cry my eyes out, bitch.
  • How could I own a real Chanel when there is so much poverty in the world?


  • I'm not a whore. I've been fucked around a lot, but I'm not a whore.
  • You are not a human being, Lola. You are an epidemic.
  • How could anyone act so macho with a pair of tits like that?


Manuela: Do you have any alcohol?
Agrado: No, I drank it all last night.

Manuela: I can lie very well, and I'm used to improvising.
