"The O.C.: The Model Home (#1.2)" (2003)
Luke Ward: Shut up, queer.
Seth Cohen: Well, at least I don't shave my chest.
Luke Ward: What'd you say?
Marissa Cooper: Luke, come on.
Seth Cohen: I just said you look nice in a sweater vest. It was a compliment.

Ryan: What kind of music do you listen to?
Marissa: Right now, punk.
Seth: Yeah, I am sorry, but Avril Lavigne doesn't count as punk.
Marissa: Oh yeah? Well, what about the Cramps? Stiff Little Fingers? The Clash? Sex Pistols?
Seth: I listen to the same music as Marissa Cooper? I think I have to kill myself.

Marissa: I mean, what did I ever do to you?
Seth: Nothing, Marissa. I've lived next door to you forever and you've never done or said anything to me.
Marissa: Oh, my God, you're the one who never talks to me. You think you're so much better than everyone.
Seth: I do? Well, if you're talking about Luke, then yes, because that guy shaves his chest.

Marissa: Look, I don't know why Luke does that. Did that. He's just...
Seth: An ass?
Marissa: Protective.

Ryan: [to Marissa] You listen to punk, huh?
Marissa: [matter-of-factly] I'm angry.

Ryan: I'm not too popular around here, and your boyfriend - a little bit angry.
Marissa: You're telling me you didn't try to hit him back?
Ryan: Actually, I hit him first.
Marissa: Well, hard to believe you're not more popular.

Marissa: Where are we?
Seth: Well, its one of my mom's housing developments. She and my grandpa own a bunch of them - this is supposed to be the model home... but it never got finished.
Marissa: Why, did someone die here and now its haunted?
Seth: Yes. That is exactly what happened.

Marissa: [walks into model home as Ryan lights it with candles. Hallelujah is playing] This song reminds me of you.
Ryan: I thought you were with Luke.
Marissa: I was.
Marissa: I don't know why I'm here, I just wanted to see you... I mean, you're leaving tomorrow!... and what if I never... we never... maybe I could spend the night? Just to hang out...
Ryan: You can't stay. If you stay, if we spend the night... I... I don't know that I could leave.
Marissa: Well, then don't!
Ryan: Ya, and you'll go back to school in the fall, and I'll just what? Hang around here? Hiding like some ghost? Cops find me and I'll have to disappear again?
[moves closer]
Ryan: We're from different worlds.
Marissa: [takes a deep breath] That's not true.
Ryan: I'm not like you. Go. Please... go.

Marissa: What are you doing?
Seth: Nothing. We're just hanging out. Oh, look, it's somebody's birthday. I guess my invitation probably got lost in the mail.

Ryan: So how long you been with him?
Marissa: Luke? Um... I don't know really.
Seth: I know. Fifth grade, when you two got your mack on during our class trip to the Museum of Tolerance. Back of the bus. Classy lady.

Alex: You... told her?
Marissa: I thought you would be happy.
Alex: No, it just depends. Did you tell her to piss her off?
Marissa: Hey, look, I told her so that this could be real. For us.
Alex: Wow.
Alex: So, what happens now?
Marissa: She is probably having a meltdown as we speak, so I can't go home.
Alex: So stay here.
Marissa: You sure?
Alex: But first, let's get you out of these wet clothes.

[Julie sees Marissa and Alex walk in]
Julie Cooper-Nichol: Good morning Mariss... oh, hi. I didn't know you had a friend over last night. Well, I'm Marissa's mother, Julie Cooper-Nichol.
Alex: Alex.
Julie Cooper-Nichol: Alex? Oh, yeah. You're the fiesty young lady Caleb mentioned. Well, I was just making bagels. I figured if the Cohens can do it, why can't we?
Alex: Oh, none for me, thanks. I don't eat breakfast.
Julie Cooper-Nichol: Oh, that's very punk of you. You know, I used to like the punk in my day.
Marissa: Mom!
Julie Cooper-Nichol: You're right, Marissa. It still is my day. I was just being modest.

Julie: You have no idea how happy it makes me to hear that.
Marissa: Hold that thought. Alex is my girlfriend.
Julie: I know, and I am so happy that you have made a new friend. Although, I hope you keep seeing Summer...
Marissa: No, Mom, not my friend who's a girl. My girlfriend.
[thunder rumbles in the distance as Julie looks shocked]
Marissa: Yeah.

Julie: Got a minute?
Marissa: Not really.
Julie: Well, I would like to talk to you. About your friend Alex.
Marissa: I'm sure you would, Mom.
Julie: Look, Marissa, I experimented too when I was your age. Albeit it involved a little Motley Cru and a lot of jager.
Marissa: Woah! Way too much information.
Julie: I'm just saying, that I understand that this is a phase, but, that I won't make a big deal about it if you don't.
Marissa: Right. This way you avoid any public embarrassment.

Marissa: So, what are you doing here, seriously?
Ryan: Seriously?

Marissa: You're their cousin from Boston, right?
Ryan: Right.

Julie: [to Kaitlin] Do you like my hair this straight or is it too Avril Lavigne?
Marissa: No, it looks good, Mom.
Julie: [sees Marissa behind her] Oh, Marissa. You look... oh honey, I thought you were going to wear your hair down. Pulled back like that, it's a little harsh on your angles.
Jimmy: [heads downstairs and to the front door] Okay, let's go!
Julie: It's going to be so amazing tonight. Are you going to wear the Donna Karan, Maris? I thought it was very forgiving.

"The O.C.: The Lonely Hearts Club (#2.12)" (2005)
Alex: You know, you don't have to hang around here all day helping me.
Marissa: Please, any excuse to avoid my house. My mom has been home for three hours and already I'm going insane.
Alex: My mom used to drive me crazy too with her egotistical and narcissistic attitude. Then one day, I decided I wasn't going to let it bother me any more.
Marissa: You make it sound so easy.
Alex: No, it's like this. Every time my mom would channel Satan, I would take a deep breath, count to three, give her a big smile, and say something like, "Interesting idea, Mom. I'll give that some thought." It shuts her right up.

Alex: Absolutely. Women like that... they thrive on confrontation. But if you refuse to engage, then there's really not anything they can do which makes them go even more out of their heads.

Marissa: Cool.

Alex: Are you okay?
Marissa: Yeah, I think I'm okay. I just a terrible dinner with my mom.
Alex: My confrontation technique work?
Marissa: I guess so. But also, it was knowing that I could come here and see you. Not that I want to put any pressure on you or anything, it's just... that's how I feel. And, I had to say it.
Alex: Are you in the mood for the beach?
Marissa: Now?
Alex: Yeah, it's almost time.
Marissa: Time for what?
Alex: For the tide to change. It's a little ritual I have to watch the high tide change whenever something major is about to change in my life.
Marissa: I thought you said no dating on Valentine's Day.
Alex: Screw it. I'm a huge fan of spontaneous first dates.
Marissa: I am too.

"The O.C.: The Escape (#1.7)" (2003)
Marissa: Hey, we're lucky that guy even stopped for us.
Summer: Well, we'd be even luckier if Cole Trickle here hadn't driven us off the road!
Seth: Who the hell is Cole Trickle?
Summer: Ugh, Tom Cruise? Days of Thunder?
Marissa: Hey guys, can we try to be positive here?
Seth: Yeah, okay, I am positive that this is Summer's fault.

Julie: Like who, that boy from Chino? Marissa, do you want to end up like your Aunt Cindy, with four kids in a trailer park? She broke my mother's heart. I will not let you break mine.
Marissa: Oh, so now this is about you?

"The O.C.: The Chrismukkah Bar Mitz-vahkkah (#3.10)" (2005)
Seth: No wait, listen to me. This wouldn't be just an ordinary bar mitzvah, you know what this would be? Wait for it... wait... A Chrismuckkah Bar mitzvahkkah. Spell that dude!
Ryan: That's crazy.
Seth: Yeah? So crazy that it just might work.
Marissa: So we throw a big party...
Summer: And Ryan gets the money from the bar mitzvah?
Marissa: And then we can spend the money for Johnny's surgery.

Marissa Cooper: Look, Summ, if it's this hard being around him, then why go? Why do this to yourself?
Summer Roberts: Because, Coop, I told them I was okay with it. I told them I was fine just being their friend. I have a reputation to uphold.
