Dr. Dean Kahanna: [sobs drunkenly] Feel? That's just it, I don't feel. Anything. Paul must of loved me and I felt was a blank. I don't know how to love.
Dr. Dean Kahanna: My brother knows you were born to the purple, but he doesn't know how much you like to wear it.
Dr. Dean Kahanna: Well that's a switch isn't it? What you really mean is will I do right by Paul.
Dr. Dean Kahanna: Exactly. Will you run him like your brother runs everything? Will you be his wife or will he be just your husband?
Dr. Dean Kahanna: What cave do you live in? How is it any different for me to be just his wife or for him to be just my husband?
Dr. Dean Kahanna: If someone is wearing the shoes it had better be the man.
Dr. Dean Kahanna: Ha
Dr. Dean Kahanna: Don't forget Sloane, I grew up with you too, and I took notes. Remember that summer when you were 15, up by the waterfall? Do you remember what you did? You took off your clothes and dove in.
Dr. Dean Kahanna: I remember. I said "Come on in Deano, come on in." And why didn't you? Were you too shocked? I bet you'd be shocked right now.
Dr. Dean Kahanna: I wasn't shocked Sloane. I wanted to.
Dr. Dean Kahanna: [caught off guard] You know what I would have done if you had? I would have scratced your eyes out and said "I hate you Dean Kahanna, I hate you."
Dr. Dean Kahanna: Sure Sloan. I hate you too.
Dr. Dean Kahanna: Oh, Deano. I don't know why, but you bring out the spitting witch in me. One of us must be an awful person.
Dr. Dean Kahanna: Both of us. I bring out the spitting witch, but it has to be there to come out.
Dr. Dean Kahanna: And that's with just one pair of shoes.
Riff: Now move in and shake hands.
Bernardo: For what?
Riff: Well, that's the way it's done, buddy boy.
Bernardo: More gracious living. Everyone of you hates everyone of us, and we *hate* you right back.
