Skinny Carter: [coming back from playing a basketball game] Man, I was droppin' dimes today!
Mac Carter: Man, you tripped over your own shoes!
Tyler Gage: Twice actually, but you rolled outta the second one pretty nice, you played it off pretty cool.

Director Gordon: See, that's my concern... he's not taking this seriously.
Tyler Gage: Well, I'm sorry... it's just that you guys talk about dancing like it's rocket science or something.

Director Gordon: And you say that he can dance?
Nora: He's... adequate.
Tyler Gage: Adequate?
Director Gordon: See. That's my concern. He's not taking this seriously.
Tyler Gage: Look, I'm sorry. It's just... ya'll are talking about dancing like it's rocket science or something.
Nora: It's just for a couple of weeks. Until Andrew gets better.
Tyler Gage: Yeah.
Director Gordon: This would be your risk Nora. It's your Senior piece.
Nora: I know.
Director Gordon: Well, don't make me regret my decision.
Nora: [talking to Tyler] 2:30 tomorrow. Bring your tights.
Tyler Gage: Tights? Wait. What?

[making fun of Skinny, comparing him to a talk show host]
Tyler Gage: You're like Ellen.
Mac Carter: But even she gets more girls than you!

Skinny Carter: yo lemme do it this time.
[talking about stealing a car]
Mac Carter: Skin, you the look out.
Skinny Carter: But why can't I do it this time?
Tyler Gage: Can you do it?
Skinny Carter: Yeah.
Tyler Gage: Let him do it then.
Mac Carter: You know what? Here you go tough guy.
[hands him a crow bar to break into the car with]
Mac Carter: See that one right there. Go get it.
Tyler Gage: That car's got an alarm on it.
Mac Carter: I know.
Tyler Gage: [the car alarm goes off and the boys run away] Dude, I told you that alarm was gonna go off.
Skinny Carter: Wait a minute. Ya'll set me up?
Tyler Gage: You shoulda saw your face.

Mac Carter: [seeing tyler teaching a bunch of people the dance he and Nora made up] Man, what is this?
Tyler Gage: It's part of my community service

Miles Darby: [about Tyler and Nora no longer working together] Man I bet you've been moping around too.
Tyler Gage: [looking happy] She's been moping?
Miles Darby: I'm not saying anything
Tyler Gage: [laughing] Come on man! Tell me, have you seen a tear?

Mac Carter: [after Tyler gets in a fight at a party] You feel like because you're a white boy you gotta overcompensate or something?
Tyler Gage: Wow, like wow, you got me figured out, Montel
Mac Carter: Yeah, well you're the one going Jerry Springer all the time
Skinny Carter: Hey, if you're Montel and you're Jerry, then I'm like...
Mac Carter: Jenny Jones
Tyler Gage: No, like Ellen
Mac Carter: Except Ellen gets more chicks than he does!

[after the girl he was making out with leaves because his little brother interrupts them] I swear to God- you must have all the recessive genes in the family!

Mac Carter

Tyler Gage: [about a dance Nora imagines] You imagined it with dancers so get them!
Nora: Where am I going to get dancers?
Tyler Gage: You know, you do go to a school just busting with kids in tights!

Nora: You know what this means, right?
Tyler Gage: No, what's it mean?
Nora: You're gonna have to get some tights.
Tyler Gage: Done.
[He kisses her]

I'm fighting, for something that's real for the first time in my life!
