Quotes from

Susy Hendrix: Oh you must be so bored with me, everytime you come in here, I'm in absolute panic.

Susy Hendrix: I saw through you too.

All that silliness of meeting in the parking lot, the whole thing, they had comic book minds. So, I let them do it their way, right up to the very end. And then, topsy-turvy. Me topsy and them turvy.
