: Uh, Brenda, why do you have my name tattooed on your ass?

: Well yeah. I mean, I don't believe in some bearded old white man up in a cloud, but I believe in something, some sort of undefinable creative force. Brenda Chenowith
: I think it's just all totally random. Nate Fisher
: Really? Brenda Chenowith
: Yeah. We live, we die, ultimately nothing means anything. Nate Fisher

: Tonight. Dinner. Nate
: [nods, looks again
] Nah, it's a little too soon. The whole "Oops, I didn't know I was sexy" stubble look will actually peak at around... noon tomorrow. Believe me, I've perfected the art. Can you make it drinks after dinner? That'll give you another couple hours.

Tracy Montrose Blair
: Why do people have to die? Nate Fisher
: To make life important. None of us know how long we've got. Which is why we have to make each day matter.
: You are one incredibly difficult and sometimes infuriating woman, and I cannot imagine my life without you. Promise me you'll be a better driver. Promise me you'll take care of yourself.

: And what if I haven't found mine?
: I've missed you. Through this. Nate Fisher
: I missed you too. I mean, it's not like I don't know how much being with you changed me. How much it woke me up as a person. I wouldn't be who I am today if I never met you. I certainly wouldn't floss everyday, that's for sure. Brenda Chenowith

: Oh, it's great... great. My father's dead, my mom's a whore, my brother wants to kill me, and my sister's smoking crack. I think I win.
: Brenda, I am pretty sure that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are brother and sister and they're making it work. Brenda
: Just shut the fuck up.
: You only get one life. There's no God, no rules, except for those you accept or create for yourself. Then once it's over... it's over. Dreamless sleep forever and ever. So why not be happy while you're here?

] I think this will do. All right, I'm leaving you without dinner. I'll be back really late.
] Claire Fisher
: This whole concept of Mom self-actualizing is making me nauseous. Nate Fisher
: You're sure it's that and not the concept of Mom pissing in a plastic jar?

: Well, his music will live on, right? Nate
: Oh, fuck you! Life doesn't have to be miserable just because you are. Oh yeah, I know-weird shit happened to you. Yeah, but you know what? It happens to all of us, and I am sick to death of you using it as an excuse to act like some fucking cunt from hell.
