EPISODE QUOTES
  • Dennis: I just wanted to drop off your Christmas present. I'd already bought it for you, so... It's a fancy briefcase, you know, because you're classy and important. Like a dude.
  • Jenna: I'm taking you out to celebrate—a girls' night. We'll meet some new people.
    Liz: Oh, you mean like at a discotheque?
    Jenna: Oh, boy...
  • Jenna: That guy wanted to buy you a drink.
    Liz: Really? I already have a drink. Do you think he'd buy me mozzarella sticks?
  • {Liz watches Dennis on Dateline NBC's "To Catch A Predator" in shock}
    Chris Hansen: What are you doing here tonight?
    Dennis: {with balloons} I'm here to boff some chick named Mary.
    Chris Hansen: "Boff some chick named Mary"... do you know how old Mary is?
    Dennis: 22... I think?
    {Liz screams, Dennis runs in and turns off the TV}
    Liz: Oh, my God!
    Dennis: Oh, crap! That girl said she was 16, but I swear to God I could tell she was 22!
    Liz: Get out of my apartment!
    Dennis: This happened while we were broken up!
    Liz: No, no, no, no, no. I was right about you. This is a con, by the way. You on Dateline is a CON!
  • Tracy: Our comedy got to do more than make people laugh, it gotta make people think. I want to hold a mirror to society and then win world record for biggest mirror.
  • Tracy: Sneaky Taiwanese tranny who stole my watch.
  • Dennis: I'm moving into my new apartment so I've got one last thing to say to you and I'll be out of your life forever. {reading from his letter} Dear Liz Lemon. While other women have bigger boobs than you, no woman has as big a heart. When I saw you getting ready to go out and get nailed by a bunch of guys last night, I knew for sure it was over between us. And for the first time since the '86 World Series I cried. I cried like a big dumb homo. And if it was up to me, we would be together for ever. But there's a new thing called "women's liberation" which gives you women the right to choose, and you have chosen to abort me. And that I must live with. So tonight when you arrive home I'll be gone. I officially renounce my squatters' rights. {folds the letter} I'll always love you. Goodbye and good luck. I'll never forget you. {he leaves}
    Liz: And that is why we are no longer a couple.
