Trish/Dez: Huh? What? Ewwwww!
Dez: The Wedding Diaries is out already?!?! Listen guys, I have to go. I have practice for...sports. [runs to door before running back and grabbing tissue box] In case I cry during the...sports.
Penny: Hey Ally! Guess what? Lula the gorilla gave birth to twins!
Ally: Awwww...
Penny: I named this one Ally because she's so creative, and this one Trish because she's so tough. And also because she sleeps a lot.
Ally: And... Trent has another girlfriend and he's only using you so he can be Austin's backup dancer.
Trish: [laughs] Puh-leeze. That's ridiculous...[starts yelling] that you would be so jealous that I have a boyfriend that you would make up such a horrible story! But wait... You wouldn't make up a story like this, would you? Because you're my best friend. And you would never want to hurt my feelings, and this was probably really hard for you to tell me, which means... It must be true.
