Christy: Hey, dude, I used to smoke, I used to drink, I used to strip, I used to not come home for days at a time.
Chef Rudy: Mm, so what you're saying is: you used to be fun.

Jill: Why do we bother putting the damn chairs away? We're just gonna have another meeting tomorrow
Marjorie: There's ladies' Zumba in the morning
Bonnie: What is that, like a Kegel thing? Tightening the old hoo-ha?
Wendy: It's a dance-based exercise class, but your la-la does get a workout
Jill: Guys, we're all over 12. We can say "vagina".
Christy: I did Zumba drunk once. Got kicked out. Maybe 'cause I kept yelling "Zumba!" And I peed in my leotard

Tammy: (phone chimes) Oh, my God
Bonnie: What?
Tammy: I just got a text from this guy I met at The Home Depot yesterday
Bonnie: Wait, like, "met a guy" met a guy? You didn't tell me that. Spill.
Tammy: Well, he works there. I needed to get a light switch, but I wasn't sure if I needed a 20-amp or if a 15-amp would cover it. So then I–
Bonnie: Get to the man part.
Tammy: So Rick–that's what his lifting belt said–swooped in and said even if I only needed a 15, a 20 should be fine.
Bonnie: And then he pushed you up against the wall and kissed you. Sorry, I just got to make the story better.
Tammy: He asked for my number, I didn't think he'd use it. Now he wants to know "What's up?" How do I even respond to that?
Christy: How about "Nothing much, what's up with you?"
Jill: Are you nuts? You want to sound busy, in demand. Tell him you're at a gala. No, wait. You met him at Home Depot. Tell him you're at a county fair.
Christy: Personally, I don't think you should start a relationship off on a lie. Go with "not much.
Tammy: Oh, man, which tiny blonde should I believe?
Bonnie: Well, Christy's my daughter and I love her, but if you want any hope of a romantic life, listen to Jill.
[Tammy types in "At a fair"]
Christy: Hey, I date!
Marjorie: You do. Not recently, but you do.
[Tammy gets a text back asking for a date, she begins to text back "Anytime"]
Jill: No, no, no. You're eating funnel cake at a fair, remember?
Wendy: Yeah, you're not just staring at your phone like some kind of Christy. Christy: I don't do that!
Bonnie: I blame myself. It's why I'm trying to do better with Tammy.
Christy: Marjorie, everyone's picking on me.
Marjorie: I know, and the fact that they're right doesn't justify it.
Christy: You know what? My homework is more fun than this. And yeah, that's a dig, guys. It's a dig!
