Bill: Don’t tell me you have a twin sister.  

 

 


Sophie: But I love Sky. I love Sky more than anything.  

 

 


Tanya: [before singing ‘Does Your Mother Know’] Little boys who play with fire get their fingers burned.  

 

 


Donna: I better be dreaming, you better not be here. 
Bill: You want me to pinch you Donna?  

 

 


Sam Carmichael: [after Donna falls on Harry’s air bed] You always knew how to make an entrance.  

 

 


Tanya: [talking about Donna’s money troubles and her life in general] Yeah, but are you being taken care of? 
Donna: What do you mean? 
Tanya: Are you getting any? 
Donna: Oh, you mean…
