  • I'm having an affair with my phone machine.


[Nicole stands up, wearing a thong bathing suit]
Andre: What - what's that?
Nicole: What's the matter?
Andre: What are you wearing?
Nicole: My bathing suit!
Andre: The whole thing?
Nicole: What, you don't like it?
Andre: Are you sure you didn't leave part of it in the box?
Nicole: Get real, Andre. Everybody's wearing them.
Andre: Everyone's staring at you!
Nicole: No, everyone's staring at you.
Andre: I insist you change!
Nicole: And I insist you loosen up, Andre, dear.
[kisses him on the cheek]
Stella: Now she's French.

Nicole: You know. One of these days, I'm leaving and I'm never coming back.
Megan: Fine. Go live with your father.
Nicole: Oh, you're such a bitch.

Andre: Told you I probably seem old.
Nicole: You are old.

Nicole: Daddy, can I talk to you about something?
Andre: Of course. You can talk to me about anything.
Nicole: Anything?
Andre: Anything at all. What is it? Tell me.
Nicole: Promise not to yell.
Andre: I promise. Now tell me.
Nicole: It's really not that bad.
Andre: Tell me.
Nicole: You said you wouldn't yell.
Andre: That was not yelling, trust me.
Nicole: I told Ben you weren't my father.
Andre: Why?
Nicole: Because I wanted to impress him.
Andre: What did you tell him I was? A famous pianist? A writer? What?
Nicole: [she takes a deep breath] I told him you were my lover.
Andre: Are you serious?
Nicole: Yes.
