Noa: [over phone, before her date with Chad] I obviously don’t mind paying, but what a weird way to start off a date.
Mollie: That’s what I’m saying. Is this what you tell your kids? “Oh, it was so romantic before our first date, y’all. He texted me, ‘FYI, this place is cash only.'” No.
Chad: [during their date] I had this crazy thought. I just feel like the women in our parents generation, they just cared more about how they dressed, and just kind of how they looked. They were more into femininity. You know what I mean? Like, nowadays, I feel like girls, they just wear oversized everything, like it’s a blanket. Do you know what I mean? You know what I’m saying, right? It’s like, because I think you would just look great in a dress. Not that you don’t look good in a sweater. But I mean, if you were…
Waitress: You guys okay?
Noa: Yeah. Pretty much done actually. Thank you.
Chad: Cool. Yeah, we’ll just get this wrapped up then.
Chad: We should do this again sometime.
Noa: Yeah. Look, Chad, I don’t think we’re really a match. You know?
Chad: Wow. I was literally just being polite. You’re not even my type, to be honest, so.
Chad: Oh, that’s funny? “Ha-ha, it’s hilarious”? Yeah. Okay. Good luck finding a guy, you stuck-up b**ch.
Noa: [moviequotesandmore.com] I don’t know how you do it, Mollie.
Mollie: Do what?
Noa: Dating people. And I always end up alone. Which, by the way, I’m very okay with.
Mollie: No. No. What? You do not need a man, okay? Or anybody, for that matter. It’s just the way we’ve been raised since f***ing Disney movies.
Noa: Yeah. F*** Ariel.
Mollie: F*** her. Stupid b**ch left the whole sea for a man. Come on, now. Like, f*** Beauty.
Noa: Yeah, f*** the Beast. I am the beast.
Mollie: You are the beast!
Steve: [as they’re grocery shopping] Have you ever had these?
Steve: No. Cotton Candy grapes. They taste just like them. I’m not kidding.
Steve: Yeah. I told my sister and my niece, and they were like, “No way. F*** you.” So now I’m getting them on my way there.
Noa: Your niece said, “F*** you”?
Steve: Yeah. Four year-olds are crazy.
Steve: [referring to the grapes] I can tell you don’t believe me, so you’re going to have to try one. I don’t want you leaving here thinking I’m a weirdo.
Noa: Holy s**t. Wow.
Noa: Yeah. Go science.
Steve: Do you live around here? Because I live on aisle six. I just come to the fruit section to talk to random, very good looking people that stand near it. That was terrible.
Noa: That was kind of terrible.
Steve: I’m so sorry.
Noa: It’s fine.
Steve: Have a good night.
Noa: Okay. You too.
Steve: You know what? F*** it. I’m already ruining this, so I’m just gooing to keep going. Do you think I could have your number?
Steve: [after Noa gives him her number] We can meet here next week to talk about the broccoli if you want.
Noa: Sounds good.
Mollie: [after Noa tells her how she met Steve] And you’re just now telling me today? Wow. When you think you had a friend.
Noa: No, I just think it was weird, you know? He was cute, and funny, and…
Noa: I didn’t think people met people in real life anymore, you know?
Mollie: [referring to Steve] He’s probably married.
Noa: Thank you for that. Yes, he’s probably married.
Noa: Like, I’m already thinking about the fact he hasn’t texted.
Mollie: That’s one of the things I love about dating women. Less games, more emotional dependence, you know?
Mollie: [to Noa, referring to dating] So don’t play the games. Just be you straight out the gate. F*** it.
Noa: [moviequotesandmore.com] Hey, do you want to come over later? I could use some emotional dependence.
Mollie: Well, my emotional dependence ain’t cheap, boo. Let me tell you.
Noa: Can I get a Manhattan with like as many cherries as you can spare, please?
Steve: Cherries. I like that.
Noa: I love cherries.
Steve: [after telling Noa he’s a doctor] I work in reconstructive surgery.
Noa: You mean, plastic surgery.
Steve: Yep. That’s the one.
Steve: There’s only one.
Noa: Well, we have something in common, I guess.
Steve: Yeah, dead parents.
Noa: [after finding out that he’s not on social media] I mean, how am I supposed to stalk you now?
Steve: You’re just going to have to do it in person. You know. Show up at my house, the old-fashioned way. Send me a letter! That would be nice.
Steve: Let’s play a game. Tell me something you don’t want me to know.
Noa: Fun game. Okay. It’s risky. Yes. I hate this. I mean…
Steve: Okay. I’m sorry.
Noa: Not you, because you seem cool. No, I hate like dating. You know? Everything about it. The awkward preamble. The like questions and stuff. The like, you know, texting. The perfect projection. Everything about it. Honestly.
Noa: [moviequotesandmore.com] I don’t know, I just think that people who like believe in true love are f***ing idiots.
Steve: So dumb.
Noa: They are.
Steve: They’re so dumb.
Noa: Like we put all our hopes of like finding happiness through someone else. And I just think that like, I don’t know, maybe it’s not meant for me, because I’ve like been alone so long. I’m actually pretty good at it.
Steve: [as they’re kissing] Maybe it’s a little too much. A little too fast.
Noa: Oh, wow. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a guy say that before.
Noa: Can I get you something to like drink? Or eat?
Steve: No. Just you.
Noa: [over phone, referring to having sex with Steve] Somewhere between the second, and the third drink I was like, “F*** it.” And it was actually very freeing.
Mollie: My “F*** it” advice always works. Damn.
Noa: Like I wasn’t even worrying about how I looked, or like if I was taking too long.
Mollie: [over phone, referring to Steve] What’s his Instagram? I want to stalk a little bit.
Noa: Oh, he doesn’t have one.
Mollie: Say what? What do you mean? Oh, no. See, that’s shady. I’m sorry. Red flag.
Noa: Okay. Whatever. Stop raining on my sex parade.
Mollie: [referring to Paul] You know, I don’t remember why we stopped hooking up. He was a good guy. And a good kisser too.
Noa: Probably because you can’t be tamed. You need to roam free.
Mollie: That is true.
Noa: [moviequotesandmore.com] You have to try these short ribs, they’re insane.
Steve: Yeah, they look really good. But I just don’t eat animals.
Noa: [over phone] I’m going away with Steve for the weekend.
Mollie: What? Where?
Noa: It’s a surprise.
Mollie: Hold on, Noa. Uh-uh. A surprise? I don’t like that.
Noa: I’m just going to go for it. You said, “F*** it,” remember?
Mollie: Girl, you’re all d**kmatized, and I haven’t even seen this dude.
Mollie: I’m excited for you. It’s a straight girl’s fantasy come true, right?
Steve: By the way, I’m making my own version of an old-fashioned with a twist. And it’s going to have some cherries in it.
Noa: Very thoughtful.
