- I read a study and after the age of forty a woman's chances of having sex are diminished by eighty percent. So, after fifty, God help you. And since I probably won't be having sex again, chocolate is the only pleasure left for me.
- You're not bisexual, Carla — you're omnisexual! You're like that tornado in the Wizard of Oz, sweeping up everything in your path.
- Customs held up another order of books at the border. They're claiming the books are pornographic… hello? Which they aren't. Well, maybe Butches in Chains is, but so what?
- Ouch, it's the plight of the bisexual. Gay girls won't play with you.
- Of course it's obscene! That's the point!
- Sometimes you have this bubbling up feeling, this certain sort of rage.
- Tony: That's funny… Get out!
- Kim: I am out.
- [Maggie and Tony are washing the sidewalk in front of 10% Books.]
- Religious Zealot: Jesus loves you!
- Maggie: Thank you! Can you still read "Die, dyke, die!" or do you think I've finally gotten it all off?
- [Religious Zealot rushes off.]
- Mr. Marcus: The books have been classified as obscene and will not be allowed through the border. Now, if I can just get you to sign here.
- Frances: Little Red Riding Hood is obscene?
- Mr. Marcus: Well, we, we thought it was something else.
- Frances: Seriously, Mr. Marcus, the Supreme Court has declared that anal sex is to gay male sex what Mozart is to classical music.
- Mr. Marcus: Miss Turner, we are not here to discuss classical music. I myself am a huge Mozart fan, but…
- Frances: Look, the fucking Supreme Court has declared this natural. It is not obscene.
- Mr. Marcus: In case you haven't noticed this is not the Supreme Court. We're here in Customs and I have a job to do.
- Frances: We're just following orders, are we? Asshole.
- Mr. Marcus: From your perspective, that must be a compliment of Mozartian proportions.
- [Frances is about to attack the homophobic customs official. Security guard Bernice steps in.]
- Bernice: Do we have a problem in here?
- Frances: Bernice? Oh my god, I haven't seen you since the Women's Music Festival!
- [Bernice hustles Frances and Maggie out the door.]
- Paul: Are you sure you like boys?
- Carla: Soft centers, hard centers. I like all the chocolates in the box.
- Judy: I'm Jeremy.
- Lila: You're a man?
- Judy: No, no, no, no, no, not really. Not ever. I was born into a man's body but I've always been a woman and well, after the final surgery...
- Lila: I think I need a little drink.
- Lila: [asking about Maggie] What is going on with her these days?
- Judy: You'd have to ask her that, Lila.
- Lila: So, there is something going on?
- Judy: Oh, well, she's nineteen. There's always something going on when you're nineteen.
- Maggie: What are you doing?
- Kim: Better homes and dildos!
- Tony: [to Maggie] Can you believe she's never been in my coffee shop? Tell her how great it is.
- Kim: Come on, I just got here. I haven't been anywhere.
- Tony: Come on! Tell her how great it is, fuck!
- Maggie: It's great. Fuck.
- Carla: Boys like toys too, you know.
- Paul: This is for boys?
- Carla: Um-hmmmmmm.
- Paul: What is it?
- Carla: A butt plug.
- [Paul abruptly drops it]
- Carla: It's okay honey, I bleach it.
