[In a disgusted tone]

Monica: Ugh... What a ho!

Quincy: Why she gotta be a ho? Cuz she wants to get with me?

Monica: Um, she's a ho because she's sending her coochie through the mail! I mean, she's not saying "You're a nice guy, and I want to get to know you." She's saying, "I wanna bone!"

Quincy: At least she's honest.

Monica: [rolling her eyes] Yeah... an honest tramp ass ho! But then, I guess you'll stick your thing in anything.

Quincy: My "thing?" Didn't know you cared so much.

Monica: I don't.

Quincy: Who you goin to the dance with anyway? Spalding?

Monica: Who's Spalding?

Coach Davis: [impatiently] You want the job, or not?

Monica: Yeah.

[Keeps staring at Coach Davis]

Coach Davis: What?

Monica: It just... it just seems like you're always riding me.

Coach Davis: [pauses, then speaks] You think I'd go hoarse for a player with no potential? When I ignore you... then you worry.
