Quotes

Kelly is the great love of my life. I'm gonna do everything in my power to win her over and you gotta help me
—Steve to Brandon
You know, I used to really envy Brenda. And pray that my life could be as charmed as hers
—Valerie to Brandon
Seems kind of dumb, but – bet he gives good credit card
—Valerie to Ginger about Steve
The Walshes? They're harmless. I'm sure everything will be cool. As long as they don't try and pull any parental trips on me. But if they do... you know me. I'll just put on a happy face... and dance
—Valerie to Ginger
