John: We have been cutting you slack, we have been making excuses for your bad behavior ever since we found out about the switch.
Daphne: I know you want to be smart and I do too. But I don't always want to wonder if we missed out on something really good because we were too scared.
Bay: You know, somebody who is sleeping with her 85 year old boss probably shouldn't throw stones.
Bay: I don't exactly give off the virginal vibe.
Bay: [to Daphne] Don't take this the wrong way, but you look the way I feel about this whole trial thing.
Daphne: I'm an open minded woman.
Melody: I mean, I never thought the relationship was going anywhere.
