Robbie: "Maybe she had her way with you while you were sleeping."
Arthur: "Like a succubus."
Robbie & Shrug: "A what?!"

Arthur: "Why would Dawn lie?"
Lauren: "Oh, so you just assume Dawn's lying?"
Arthur: "Well, if someone's lying about sex it's always the person who says there was sex. Nobody ever lies and says there was no sex."
Lauren: "Are you familiar with the leader of the free world?"

Arthur: "I don't see the point of living in a city where you can't even offend people."

Arthur: "Are you sure you didn't have sex?"
Shrug: "Arthur, I was there the whole time."

Shrug: "Oh my God, maybe she is a shuttlebus."
Arthur: "It's succubus, and it's a myth."

Shrug: "I'm gonna look up this shufflebutt on the internet."

Lauren: "I think the master stroke of Arthur's book lies in how he captured the soul of an essentially souless city."
Arthur: "Wow, that's what I did. I didn't know that's what I did, but that's what I did."

Lauren: "At its best, Arthur's book underscores the irony of how LA, which has produced so much of American culture, lacks any real culture of its own."

Shrug: "Arthur, you're right, she's a scuttlebutt!"

Dawn: "I get your soul, and in return I give you something."
Shrug: "Uh, what do other guys usually exchange their souls for?"
Dawn: "Money?"
Shrug: "Don't need it."
Dawn: "Power?"
Shrug: "Couldn't handle it."
Dawn: "Fame?"
Shrug: "Not my cup of tea."
Dawn: "Personal fulfillment?"
Shrug: "What the hell is that?"
