Claire Kane: What kind? She's a painter. She paints pictures, you know? They really want us to come to dinner.
Stuart Kane: Well, We'll see. I'm off.
Claire Kane: What does that mean? We already agreed to go. We made a date. Bye. Close the door, Stuart.
Stuart Kane: Sorry!

Honey Bush: Look at these fish, though. Aren't those cool?
Lois Kaiser: Yeah, you know I don't really give a fuck about fish. They just kinda swim, eat and shit.
